In this Destiny 2 guide, we will show you all Vow of the Disciple Lore Book Locations within the Preservation mission for the “Shattered Suns” Lore book, and with that unlocking the Imperious Sun Ghost Shell.
With the release of the Vow of the Disciple raid also was released a brand new mission called Preservation which takes place mainly at the entrance of the raid itself, and in there you will find a lot of secrets and some awesome lore which is scattered throughout the Darkness Pyramid.
You will need to collect all 10 Vow of the Disciple Lore Book entries to complete its Triumph and unlock the Imperious Sun Exotic Ghost shell, which is required to complete the Vow of the Disciple seal and earn the “Disciple-Slayer” title.
Half of the Shattered Suns lore book entries are unlocked through a puzzle right at the entrance of the Pyramid, you can do this puzzle in the Preservation mission or in the Vow of the Disciple raid, and the other half is available to collect after you complete the Preservation mission.
Once you complete the Preservation mission you will have 25 minutes to walk around the area and find the lore entries, the lore entries will not be interactable throughout the mission, only when you complete it. When you interact with one it will start a dialogue, and sometimes you will have to wait for the dialogue to end to be able to interact with the next one.
The Symbol Wall Puzzle
Before, you could do this puzzle the times you wanted to get all the Lore entries, but now since the release of the Hotfix 184.108.40.206, this seems to not be intended and it was patched, so, now you can only do this puzzle once and get one Lore entry.
Right before the Acquisition area, there is a room with a lot of pillars with symbols on them, here will be where you will find five of the lore entries, and you can access this area through the Preservation mission or through the Vow of the Disciple raid.
However, in the Preservation mission, you can only do the puzzle once per run, which means that you will have to do this process five times, otherwise, in the raid to collect these five lore entries you will have to do it once and then head into the Acquisition encounter and wipe, then head back to the puzzle area and repeat the same process until you got all of the lore entries.
To know which symbol you will need to interact with, you will need to access the hidden room which will have the code in the wall, to find the room just look to the right-hand wall with the windows, one of the windows will be open for you to jump into the room.
The wall will have three rows of symbols and each row has a different meaning, the top row doesn’t really matter and you can ignore it, those symbols just mean that you, the Guardian will have to do something.
The second row will tell you what action you will need to do, and the third row will tell you on which symbol you will have to do that specific action.
On the second row, it can only appear three symbols, the three symbols will always be the same and in the same order, so:
- The first two will require you to melee the symbols below;
- The third one will require you to interact with the symbol below;
- The fourth one will require you to shoot the symbol below.
The third row will have random symbols, you will have to memorize those symbols, and interact with them as mentioned above. You will not have a time limit and you don’t have to perform those actions in order, once you do the fourth action you will receive the lore entry.
However, if it does not work, you can try melee the first symbol again, as they are a little bugged.
The other five Lore entries continue to be collected after the completion of the Preservation mission.
All Vow of the Disciple Lore Book Locations
Above is mentioned how to unlock the lore entries from the Symbol wall puzzle, but you still need to find the locations of the lore entries from the Preservation mission.
So, to do that just complete the mission and then you will have 25 minutes, to find them all, just follow the video below by Esoterickk to find the exact locations:
