The first step takes you into the Well of Infinitude to destroy Entropic Shards.

Now, you will need to investigate the appearance of Entropic Shards in the Well of Infinitude. You can reach this area by heading to Asterion Abyss and then going through the Nexus. When you enter into the main cavern of the Nexus, go right toward the Well of Infinitude. Remember you can track the blue banner on the map it make it easier to reach your destination.

You must use Salvation's Grip on the Entropic Shard to begin the step.

This is the step that requires Salvation’s Grip. You must use Salvation’s Grip to destroy Entropic Shards. When one is destroyed, another will spawn, leading you along the correct path.

The path ends in a little arena where a shard of the Pyramid will spawn. You must now hold out against waves of Vex. At the end you will receive a charged key.

Step 3: Complete the Exo Challenge

The Exo Challenge is rather challenging early on in the Season. Enemies are 1270 Power, so definitely prepare for a challenge.

Completing the Heroic Exo Challenge is the next step toward unlocking another Aspect. This is a tougher version of the Exo Challenges as it comes with a bunch of modifiers. Come prepared for a fight. In fact, you will definitely need some Overload mods from the Seasonal Artifact to deal with the Champions. Definitely complete this one with a fireteam if you’re attempting it early on in the Season, as it has a recommended Power of 1270.

Step 4: Visit the Ziggurat in Beyond

Go up to the Ziggurat in Beyond to get teleported to the Pyramid. Approach the statue and interact with it to claim your new Aspect.

The Aspect you receive will be unique to your class. Take the time to complete this quest on all three classes to ensure you’re ready for whatever Destiny 2 throws at you.
