Destiny 2 Guide: How to Get Fossilized Hermaion Blossoms
Despite some criticism for its brevity, Destiny 2's Curse of Osiris expansion provides plenty of reasons for players to come back for more. One of the ways it does this is through the Lost Prophecy quests that grant you access to some of the game's best weapons (and you can check out those quests in our Lost Prophecies Verses guide). But one particular item required for some of these is causing a bit of puzzlement among players: the Fossilized Hermaion Blossom. Never fear! We've put together this handy guide to help get you started item farming.
What Is a Fossilized Hermaion Blossom in Destiny 2?
Fossilized Hermaion Blossoms are one of three items needed for Lost Prophecy offerings, with the other two being Concentrated Radiolarian Culture and the Advanced Paradox Amplifier. These are all used at the Infinite Forge with Brother Vance after completing Osiris' main campaign. Once you have the necessary items required for fulfilling one of the Lost Prophesy Verses and complete the offering, you're rewarded with a special weapon. Special in the sense that its damage level is automatically higher than what you're using at the time.
Great! Now, How Do I Get Hermaion Blossoms?
You can obtain one Hermaion Blossom by playing either Nightfall Skies, Trials of the Nine Matches, or Heroic Strikes. But item drop rewards are random, so there's no guarantee you'll obtain a Fossilized Hermaion Blossom at any given point. If you want to complete all the Verses or obtain specific weapons, you'll be grinding for a while.
You Mentioned Weapons and Hermaion Blossoms?
Fossilized Hermaion Blossoms are required for Verses 5 and 7-10, usually one or two alongside another item. But Verse 10 is one of the more rewarding -- and difficult -- to complete. It requires 3 Fossilized Hermaion Blossoms alone and rewards you with Future Safe 10. Future Safe 10 is a sword and one of the more balanced weapons, whose perks, such as Jagged Edge and Hungry Edge, make it well suited for attacking.
Future Safe 10 Stats:
- Speed: 46
- Impact: 62
- Range: 46
- Efficiency: 55
- Defense: 46
