3. Kill Taken Champions

Defeat Taken Champions at the Divide, Skywatch, and Rocketyard at the Cosmodrome. "There's nothing about the Taken I like. Cabal, good tactics. Hive, great architecture.

4. Talk to Cayde-6

Speak to Cayde-6 in the Hall of Guardians at the Tower. "Cayde is a cunning hunter, with years of experience in staying alive in the wilds. But, um, fighting a war isn't his strong suit. I'm not sure the 'shoot them all to death' strategy is going to be enough." —Ghost

5. Kings of Decay
