Final Wish

Before you can start the weekly mission, you must first complete a two-step quest called Final Wish. This has a mission called Final Wish and takes place in the Last Wish raid in the Dreaming City. It’s a straightforward romp that has you defeating Vex, destroying Vex cubes, and pushing deeper into the raid to take something from Riven. Once you grab her tooth, fight your way out, and then go through the portal to the Wall of Wishes.

When you reach the Wall of Wishes, you will see four symbols already inputted on the wall. Shoot each symbol to turn it into an icon of Riven and then step on the plate.

After the cutscene, you’ll need to speak with Mara Sov in the H.E.L.M. You’ll find her in the right wing of the ship. When this is done, the introductory quest will be complete and you can start on the actual weekly story mission.

Wishing All The Best – Week 1

The first week of Wishing All The Best begins immediately after completing the mission, Final Wish. This will introduce you to the various currencies and activities in Season of the Wish, and you’ll even get some of the new gear.

  1. Speak with Riven
  2. Complete a run of Riven’s Lair
  3. Speak with Petra at the holoprojector
  4. Complete Blind Well runs
  5. Complete the mission, Polysemy
  6. Listen to Mara and Osiris in the H.E.L.M.
  7. Speak to Riven
  8. Wait until next week

Most of the steps are straightforward for the Wishing All The Best quest. Riven’s Lair is an enemy-dense fight through caverns where you need to find three plates and stand on them to activate a portal at the end. While this is happening, look for pools of Light to remove the Pervading Darkness debuff.

The Blind Well runs are done in a new version of the old Forsaken activity. Open the map of the Dreaming City and select the Blind Well to get dropped directly into it. A Tier 1 completion will earn you 25 percent progress, so it’s fairly quick, especially if you do the higher tier versions.

When this is done, a new mission called Polysemy will be available. This is the same setup as Riven’s Liar: activate plates and make it to the end. There will be a Vex boss for you to defeat. Use the Vex heads to blast away its shield.

Finally, you’ll need to listen to Mara Sov and Osiris in the H.E.L.M. They’re waiting for you in the lower level of the right-hand wing. Go into the Awoken section and use the stairs to circle down to them.

Completing this portion of the quest will grant you another quest called, Caught in the Coil. You’ll need to complete one run of The Coil activity.

You will need to consume a Tincture of Queensfoil in order to enter it. There will also be a marker on the map of the Dreaming City indicating where the challenge is but only while you have this season’s quest active.


Wishing All The Best – Week 6

  1. Speak to Riven
  2. Speak with Crow in the H.E.L.M.
  3. Speak with Petra at the holoprojector

  7. Go to the HELM and listen to the conversation between Crow, Mara, and Osiris

For step 45, you will need to visit each of the listed areas and defeat enemies to get Prismatic Telemetry. There are also large, diamond Oracles you can destroy for 25 percent progress. In Spine of Keres, you can find two Oracles outside the Orrery, one up high and the other over the side of the bridge. Another is at the end of the path, in the misty area.

In Gardens of Esila, there are a few Oracles, one can be found immediately above the bridge, another is by the large statues, and one more is in the upper most section, over the side of the wall opposite the tree bridge.

The Oracles in Harbinger’s Seclude can be tough to find. One is by the large statue at the end of the area, another is down the elevator near said statue, and the third is by the portal near the ahamkara skulls.

Step 47 has you visiting Mara’s throne, which is the one in the Dreaming City accessed via Spine of Keres. This step does not mean the throne she’s sitting on in the H.E.L.M. Head to the Orrery in Spine of Keres and approach the Techeun on the balcony. Present the offering and head through the portal.
