How to Complete the Luna’s Calling Quest in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

This Destiny 2 walkthrough guide tells you how to complete Luna's Calling in Shadowkeep.

If you plan to play all of the Shadowkeep expansion content in Destiny 2, you’ll need to complete the Luna’s Calling quest to give Eris Morn freedom from her Nightmares. The quest chain updates weekly, and while completing it isn’t difficult, knowing how ahead of time can sure be helpful.

How to Complete the Luna’s Calling Questline in Destiny 2

Two important notes: Luna’s Calling is a weekly quest, and each step has vastly different requirements. Additionally, you’ll also need to finish Shadowkeep’s main storyline to begin Luna’s Calling, which you do by picking up the Lunar Spelunking Bounty from Eris on the Moon.

Once you complete the three Lost Sectors, you’ll receive the Firewall Data Fragment. Now, your next step in Luna’s Calling is to enter K1 Revelation in Sorrows Harbor. You actually don’t need to kill anything inside, just make your way to where the boss usually spawns (where the farthest crystal is). From there, look to your right and you should see a yellow-lit pipe hallway.

Near the end of the hallway, on your right, is a doorway that’s usually locked unless you’ve completed the Firewall Fragment. Interact with it to deposit the Data Fragment.

After depositing, you’ll receive the Memory of Sai Mota quest. 

How to Complete the Memory of Sai Mota in Destiny 2

The Memory of Sai Mota quest requires you to collect 20 Necklace Fragments by killing Nightmare enemies with Arc abilities. These abilities include:

  • Your melee when it’s off cooldown.
  • Any Nightmare kill with an Arc grenade.
  • Any kill with an Arc-based Super.

Powerful enemies (Ogres, yellow-bar Wizards, bosses, etc.) grant three Fragments, rank and file Nightmares (Acolytes, Thrall, etc.) grant two. Be aware you need to be the one to hit the killing blow with your abilities for quest credit.

Farming Method 1: Patrol Sorrow’s Harbor, as Nightmare Ogres and associated Acolytes and Thrall will spawn around you reasonably regularly. Use everything at your disposal to kill as many nightmares as you can.

Farming Method 2: Head back into the K1 Revelation Lost Sector and rush to the boss area. You’ll need to kill two yellow-bar Wizard Nightmares to spawn the boss. Between two and four Acolyte Nightmares will spawn with him. Kill all of them, fast-travel to Sorrow’s Harbor, and do it again.

Farming Method 3: Complete all three of the Lost Sectors in Trostland on the EDZ. There are tons of low-level Nightmare enemies and an easy Nightmare boss, which collectively shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to clear on even a sub-par build.

How to Complete the Memory of Vell Tarlowe

After the week’s reset, and provided you’ve completed the Memory of Sai Mota quest, speak to Eris, and you’ll receive the Memory of Vell Tarlowe quest.

The first step is to complete that week’s replayable story mission. You don’t need to complete any specific mission, only the one selectable from the Moon map.

Once you’ve completed the mission, the grind commences.

For this quest, you’ll need to collect Mark Fragments by killing Nightmares in Nightmare Hunts with melee abilities. You don’t have to have your ability off cooldown for the kill to count. All you need is to make the killing blow with your melee attack.

There’s no good farming method for this quest. Your best bet is to gather a fireteam and ask them to give you every Nightmare kill they can. Additionally, launchable Hunts are at 1770 base Power, so if you’re still grinding your power up, it may take you a while to access this part of the quest. This step will take you a few hunts, but if you’re efficient, no more than three or four. 

How to Complete the Memory of Toland, the Shattered

The third step in Luna’s Calling is to construct a notebook from the insane Warlock Toland, the Shattered. Your first step is to find and kill the Trove Guardian Knight enemy who spawns across the moon. Depending on the day, he’ll be in either Archer’s Line, Anchor of Light, and the Hellmouth.

For a detailed rundown of where to find him, check out our How to Find the Trove Guardian guide. 

The short version is that you’ll need to find the Guardian, kill him, go through a short jumping puzzle, and open a chest. The chest will give you the Toland, the Shattered’s Notes quest item, opening up step 2 of the quest.

For part 2, you’ll need to use Hive Relic Sword weapons to defeat any enemy combatant.

Your best farming method is the Altars of Sorrow on the Moon. Start up the event by interacting with any of the energy wells in Sorrow’s Harbor, and when you get to the Wizard killing phase, swords will spawn. Make everything dead.

Once you’ve got Toland, the Shattered’s Journal, head to Eris on the Moon in her usual spot.

Memory of Omar Agah

For week 4 of Luna’s Calling, you’ll be completing the Memory of Omar Agah quest, which consists of the following steps:

  • Defeat a powerful Hive Wizard with your Super anywhere in the system with 
  • Land precision kills with Bows or Sniper Rifles against powerful opponents to collect Throwing Knives

For the first part of the quest, you can defeat any yellow bar wizard on any planet in the system. There aren’t too many easy and consistent ways to do this without the vanilla planets, but there will be plenty of boss-level Wizards that spawn in Altars of Sorrow.

Be sure you get the final blow with your Super or you won’t progress the quest. Use a Super like Dawnblade, Golden Gun with Celestial Nighthawk, or Thundercrash for best results.

For the next step in the quest, you need to collect Throwing Knives by defeating powerful opponents with Bows and Sniper Rifles. There are a few ways to farm the 20 knives you need: Guardian kills in PvP, Altars of Sorrow, or Nightfall Strikes.

PvP activities — Gambit and Crucible — guarantee progress, but you’ll still need to get 20 kills with Bows or Sniper Rifles. The former is a little inconsistent, and if your aim is lacking, the latter can be a bit of an ask. 

We recommend sticking to PvE activities. Fly to Mars and boot up Altars of Sorrow for a good powerful farm, as any orange or yellow bar enemy has a fair chance of dropping the Knives you need. 

Memory of Eriana-3

The fifth and final memory in the Luna’s Call questline has you hunting for mementos of Eriana-3. Start as you have the others: head to Eris Morn and pick up the quest.

Your first objective is to defeat a Lunar Scavenger enemy somewhere on the Moon. The easiest one to find is in the crashed Fallen Ketch in the Anchor of Light.

Head into the ship and make your way to the room with the destroyed Walker Tank.

Kill all the enemies in the room and go to the hallway on the left side of the room. A yellow bar Captain will spawn with a name you might recognize: Lunar Scavenger.

Take him out to spawn a chest containing the Letters from Wei Night quest step.

This second objective asks you to defeat 10 Champion enemies anywhere in the system wearing a Solar subclass. The content needs to be on Hero difficulty or higher.

If you’re up for it, you can do some Exotic grinding during this step by running a few Legend or Master Lost Sectors or doing a similar number of Hero Nightfall Strikes. The choice is yours.

Once you’ve collected enough letters from slain Champions, head back to Eris in her usual spot, through the portal, and around the corner. Listen to her final stage of grief, collect your loot, and be glad you completed the Luna’s Calling questline. You’ve also rid Eris Morn of her lingering demons and banished the Nightmares from her thoughts.

And that’s how you complete the Luna’s Calling memory pursuit each week in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep. Check out our Destiny 2 guides hub while you’re at it for more content, like how to get the Devil’s Ruin exotic sidearm, how to get Destiny 2 for free, and our guide to dominating Gambit PvP.
