Speak with Commander Zavala and pick up the Exodus: Preparation quest.

Part way through Season of Arrivals, players have been given a new directive from Commander Zavala. This quest is called Exodus: Preparation, and has players venturing to the planets where the Pyramids have appeared. The steps involve completing various activities on these planets in a bid to help those planetary vendors prepare.

Players looking to get the Season of Arrivals Seal and Title will need to do this for one of the Season of Arrivals Triumphs.

Preparation: Titan

The first step of this questline is to speak to Deputy Commander Sloane on Titan. Just walk right up to her and interact and you'll be given a new goal.

Speak with Asher Mir.

Report to Zavala

Exodus Preparation Militia's Birthright destiny 2

After finishing up Asher Mir’s weekly bounty, and speaking with the Gensym Scribe himself, you will need to return to the Tower to talk with Zavala. At this point, Zavala will offer you a Grenade Launcher, The Militia’s Birthright. If you haven’t already, this GL makes it far easier to get The Mountaintop, so consider working towards that after this quest is done.

Preparation: Mercury

Head to Mercury and talk to Brother Vance in the Lighthouse, he will request your help.

As you may have guessed, this step requires you to complete one of Ana’s weekly bounties. These bounties usually focus on completing a strike, defeating enemies with melees, and just killing baddies on Mars. Grab one and get to work.

Shades of Red

With this final weekly bounty completed, go and speak with Ana Bray. Your next stop is the Tower.

Return to Zavala

Now that everyone is prepped and ready for action, return to Zavala in the Tower. He’ll have a few final words before the quest is completed.

The Exodus: Preparation quest will have you planet-hopping to the locations destined to be removed in September. This is a Season of Arrivals exclusive quest, meaning it will disappear at the end of the season.
