Destiny 2 – How to access the Seraph Towers and completing Raising Our Defences quest

Season of the Worthy is here and with it comes a new public activity called Seraph Towers. The Almighty is falling towards The Last City on Earth and it’s our job to raise Rasputin’s Defences throughout the season and use the power of the Warmind to try and stop it. The following is a guide for how to access the Seraph Towers and completing Raising Our Defences quest.

The Seraph Towers are part of Rasputin’s defence systems and it’s our job to reestablish connections throughout the system to the Warmind’s network. This involves finding and clearing bunkers for Rasputin and paving the way for these towers.

There’s a short quest we have to do before we can access the Seraph Bunkers and Towers and that’s called Raising Our Defences.

Speak With Ana

The first step is to head to Mars and speak to Ana Bray. You can see her on the director, land near the Braytech Futurescape and go and have a chat with her.

Light Collection

Ana says that Rasputin wants to have a word with us, but first, we have to collect 20 orbs of light and generate 8 orbs of light. As you’re on Mars already, either join in a public event or Escalation Protocol event… or just kill any enemies who happen to be hanging out nearby. Orbs of light are generated when you kill enemies with your abilities and super, so killing big groups of enemies will help you get this step done nice and quick. Once you have what you need then it’s onto the next step of the quest.

Speak to Rasputin

Next up we want to go and speak to the Warmind himself. There’s a mission node active again near Braytech Futurescape, head that way and activate the mission. Follow the on-screen prompts which will lead you to Rasputin. This time the Warmind has some cool little robot buddies to help out. Head past those, and go and have a chat to Big Red.

He gives us the Artifact for the season, Warmind Khanjali and I immediately got Unstoooable Hand Cannon mod, which is a nice addition for the season.

Relic of the Golden Age

Next up we have to locate the Seraph Bunker on the EDZ to help ready Rasputin’s systems. This is located on the map on the EDZ and it’s close to The Sludge. You’ll get a nice little cutscene with the hidden bunker opening up.

Make your way to the bunker, make your way down and speak to Rasputin, who’s now hanging out on the EDZ. The Warmind says we have to go and set something up at The Winding Cove in a hidden Seraph Bunker there. Before you leave, pick up all the bounties from Rasputin.

Seraph Tower Activation

Go to Winding Cove and you’ll find the first Seraph Tower. The activity itself is pretty fun, it’s a kind of cross between Black Armoury Forges and Escalation Protocol in that you have to defend the towers, powers them up with orbs by throwing them at the glowing sphere between the active towers while killing waves of enemies as they try and take down the tower.

Throughout the public event, there’s a percentage bar going up indicating your progress and there’s a timer going down. The main objective is to get to 100% before the timer runs out. If the timer runs out then Ana Bray says she’s putting away the tech for the time being.

Once the percentage bar fills up to you have to defeat the enemy Champions. I had a few Barrier Servitors. I’m not sure yet if the bosses will be the same each time, or they rotate – we’ll find out over the coming weeks. Kill the bosses and pick up the loot to complete the event. You’ll have a few new pieces of currency drop including Warmind Bits and Encrypted Warmind Bits.

Restore the Bunker

Next up you want to head back to The Sludge on the EDZ for the final part of the quest and restore the bunker. Speak to Rasputin and he’ll tell you to push further into the bunker and clear out the enemies to restore power. Follow the markers and start killing enemies.

The bunkers are kind of like Lost Sectors with a traditional boss at the end. Zavala and Ana Bray are working at the console while all the craziness is going on around them. Kill the boss and then have a chat with Zavala and Ana. Once you’ve done this access the console and restore Rasputin’s connection.

Purchase Bunker Upgrade

Now the bunker is back online you can purchase bunker upgrades from Rasputin on the EDZ to bring new bunkers systems online. These will make Rasputin stronger over time as we Guardians purchase more. Get more currency from completing Seraph Tower activities and that appears to be the reward loop for this season.

Rasputin has weapons, bounties and bunker rank bonuses. Rasputin has weapon frames which I would imagine would allow us to farm-specific weapon frames – I had bounties for Seventh Seraph Carbine Auto Rifle, Sidearm, Hand Cannon and Machine Gun available to me. These require glimmer and Encrypted Warmind Bits. The weapons themselves required 60 Warmind Bits, 5 Legendary Shards and 3000 Glimmer to purchase directly. There’s also cosmetics like shaders and other things.

The final step of the quest is to purchase an upgrade. Check out the EDZ Bunker upgrades tab at the top and you can purchase the Tier 1 upgrade for the Valkyrie Spawner. Once you do this you’re free to repeat the Seraph Tower activity on EDZ as much as you like.

Overall the Seraph Bunkers and Towers are good fun. I like the mix of the objective matches like powering up the towers while fighting off the enemies. There’s only one at the moment, however, other Bunkers and Towers will appear throughout the season as we go along. The Moon is coming 24th March and then Io comes on April 7th.

Let me know down in the comments what you think of the Seraph Bunkers and Towers and what you think of Rasputin being more involved in the story. Do you like the activity and how does it compare to previous seasons activities like The Sundial?

That’s it for this guide on how to access the Seraph Towers and completing Raising Our Defences quest. For more Destiny 2 content like this check out the Shadowkeep Guide or check out the YouTube Channel.
