Destiny Eris Morn Bounties

Eris Morn is a new vendor in the Tower that appeared on December 9th, 2014, with the first Destiny expansion The Dark below. She is the only survivor of a team that went against Crota in the Hellmouth.
Eris Morn is the main character of the Dark Below expansion, and completing her bounties and quests will increase the standing with the Crota’s Bane faction.

Take a look at our guide Eris Morn location and items for her location in the tower and items she has for sale.

Eris Morn Bounties

NameDescriptionRewards
AtonementRapidly kill 3 Hive with a special weapon, 5 times. Death will reset your progress. 
Blades of CrotaHunt the Knights who serve as Blades of Crota on Earth and the Moon.

Gosu Tip: Since 12/16/2014 and a patch Bungie released there is a new story mission you can play on Earth called Fist of Crota. After the initial fight with fallen and hive (you can run past these mobs into the building behind) you will enter a building where a Blade of Crota will spawn with its sword relic. You can kill it for this achievement and reset the story mission by going to Orbit and re-entering to quickly be done with this bounty instead of hunting for randomly spawning Blades of Crota all over Moon and Earth.For spawn locations on Earth check out the “Cut Them Down” bounty lower in this table. They seem to spawn every 10 minutes in caves around Earth.
 
BonebreakerKill Hive Wizards with Shoulder Charge.

Gosu Tip:This is a Titan only bounty. Titans will have to have a skill Shoulder Charge unlocked in their Striker talent tree (it is the 2nd skill in the last column to the right). I recommend you find some low level wizards on the Moon (there are more of them there) and take down their shield with a few shots from your regular weapon and then charge them running to execute the Shoulder Charge maneuver. Wizards usually cast that black smoke in front of them as you get close so try to be aware of that as you try to avoid the poisonous gas. I went to the Moon patrol and went straight forward through a dome structure to enter the Hive Fortress (don’t take the road left or right at first). Inside the fortress as you progress down the path you should come across a circle where two wizards are doing some sort of ritual. Further down you can find a couple more wizards and I suggest you go back and see if the first two respawned. IF not just go inside the hive tunnels on moon and you should find some wizards scattered about (Hellmouth comes to mind for example).
 
BoneshakerKill 7 Hive at once with Fist of Havoc.

Gosu Tip: I recommend you find yourself a nice big group of Hive enemies and use this Titan Striker special to kill 7 mobs at once. Recommended locations are either of the two new The Dark Bellow story missions (remember – you can do the low level version – it don’t matter as long as 7 hive are dead), The Dark Within story mission on Earth (This is where you are supposed to kill the wizard but a bunch of thralls also spawn several times so you can kill 7 then. I recommend going to a level 20 version at least because more thralls will spawn the bigger the level), The Dark Beyond story mission on the Moon (get to the Hive Fortress entrance and after the cinematic a bunch of thrall will come out for you to kill).

Blades of Crota locations

Update: With a patch released on December 16th 2014. you are able to play a new story mission on Earth called Fist of Crota. There is a Blade of Crota spawning during this mission and you can use this fact to farm them for this bounty. Once you kill it go back to orbit and restart the mission to get another sword and kill hive if you did not do all of the bounty in your first try. You can skip the first waves of mobs at the entrance of the building where Blade spawns by running past them. You can also hunt for Blades of Crota the old way as stated in the continuation of this guide

Gosu Tip: This is kind of annoying to do because you need to go into patrol mode on Cosmodrome/Earth and wait for special mobs to spawn. The deal here is that every 10-20 minutes there is an announcement sin lower left of the screen saying something like “The minions of Crota have started a ritual” or “The Blades of Crota have invaded this world”. This means that nearby, in a cave somewhere, there are hive mobs chanting and once you kill them Blade of Crota will spawn along with several acolytes. Once you kill them they drop a sword relic you can use to kill the acolytes (focus solely on the Blade of Crota, pick up sword, kill acolytes). I think at least 5 acolytes will be nearby fore you to kill so you need to do this 3 times at least. I found these spawns all over Earth and map and screenshots bellow will show some of the locations, but as far as I know there is no other way to do this mission except hunt for them all over Earth (I remember the first mission Eris gives you has a Blade of Crota mob you can kill and use its relic to kill hive there, but you can not repeat that mission atm). Remember that only one relic drops so if others are hunting for them nearby you will not be able to pick it up if they are faster than you. Good luck guardians. Addendum: You can find them spawning in Forgotten Shores and the Rocketyard as well and these are less traveled zones so try your luck there.

Cut to the QuickRapidly kill 10 Hive with Arc Blade. 
Deadshot CollectorKill Hive with precision damage while under the effect of a Black Wax Idol.

Black Wax Idol is a consumable you get as a drop from Hive majors or ultras. Remember to use the consumable in your inventory before you start killing hive. I’d recommend doing the new The Dark Bellow story missions “Siege of the Warmind” on Earth or “The Wakening” on the moon to fight the most hive or you can do pretty much any old story mission on moon for this (except the fallen story ones). You can also do the easy mission on Earth “The Dark Within” where you kill your first wizard in the game.
 
Hard FallRapidly kill 4 Hive with a heavy weapon. Death will reset your progress.

Gosu Tip: Take a machine gun or rocket launcher and go to one of the new The Dark Bellow story missions or The Dark Within mission on Earth (level 3 mission) and you should find enough Hive to kill with a few rounds from your heavy weapon.
 
Husk ReaperCollect Husk Shards by defeating Hive on any destination. 
IlluminatorGenerate Orbs of Light. 
Let’s DanceRapidly Kill 7 enemies with a Melee attack.

Gosu Tip:Just like “Boneshaker” bounty above you need to find a large group of hive to kill with melee. I’d recommend “The Dark Beyond” story mission on the Moon (pick a heroic difficulty of lower level than you for more enemies and still for it to be easy) or any of the two new story missions that came with The Dark Bellow expansion.

One of UsKill Hive Majors and Ultras with any of Eris’ class items equipped.

Remember to equip the legendary class items Eris sells. You will need high enough reputation with her to purchase them, but I got my Titan mark from her as a reward for finishing all the quests she has so try doing that in hopes of getting the class item. Afterwards you can go to Earth and go underground left of where you spawn (there is a small shed that takes you underground and you will find three hive majors lvl 18 spawning there all the time) or do any of the new The Dark Bellow story missions because they have loads of majors and ultras for you to kill.

    Hey,

    For ‘Let’s Dance’ the meele kill 7 hive bounty, i found it much quicker to load the earth mission ‘the dark within’, the one where u see your first wizard. Just when the ghost opens the door and we go in the dark room, and all the thralls come out, i run back towards my door and then meele all of the thralls. easy and much quicker.

      Thanks Riley, your suggestion works great. I also used this location to do the “Boneshaker” and “Deadshot Collector” bounties.

    Not gosu enough for you

    The whole cut them down mission, you guys are stupid. There is a sword that spawns in the rocket yard. Need I say more?

      Before calling someone stupid you might want to check your facts. You probably just stumbled across a sword someone left behind after they killed the blade of crota. There are no confirmed fixed places of the sword except the first time you start Eris Morn missions in the Grotto.

        Not gosu enough for you

        Ok, well, or I just ran to the far back back right corner of the rocket yard where a servitor spawns (usually) and I killed a Sword of Crota and then turned around and burned the other 5 acolytes around him and the other 11 in the area before the timer ran out on the sword and got the quest done in one go. And you’re right it’s ignorance not stupidity, my apologies.

          And as for confirmation psn Scrotimere just uploaded a video of a second spawn location other than the aforementioned blade.

            Gosu enough for you

            I like the new style of doing that mission much better and faster than hunting for swords. The rocket yard is still my fav place to farm sword (have 2 Eidolon Ally already and a third ready to upgrade) but doing just the swords that mission is gosu.

    I found the very beginning of Crota’s End to be the easiest place to complete, while using the Firebolt Grenade and Radiant Will.

    I’m having difficulty with ONE OF US. I’m a Warlock Lvl 31 running with:

    Helmet

    Gauntlets
    Death Singer’s Grip
    Chest Armor

    Any suggestions?

    The first area in the Earth patrol. Follow the coastline to the first shack, kill any fallen around it, head down the stairs inside, follow the tunnel to the right and enter the first room on the right. A yellow knight and two yellow accolytes usually spawn in there, and they respawn quickly (you will need to back out away from the room and you may need to kill the fallen that respawn on the surface near the shack). I can usually get 6-9 to spawn in relatively quick succession.

    Points to note: a chest can spawn either in that room, or a further room inside and to the left. A chest can also spawn around that room (it may be the same chest that spawns inside or a separate chest). Spinmetal can also spawn inside the tunnel (check to both left and right ends of the tunnel) leading to the room containing the yellow mobs.

    I found a super easy way to kill Hive from behind! Go to the last “Dark Below” mission called “The Wakening”. In it you will find many clusters of Cursed Thrall. If you shoot one of the Thralls whom are at the back of the group, it will explode and cause all the others to explode. This explosion coming from the rearmost Thrall counts as a kill from behind. Each group could earn you about six kills from behind. Very easy! Confirmed multiple times.

    Just did Fist, didn’t count towards my bounty. Finished the mission let the timer run out and everything.
