Thorn Exotic Hand Cannon

This service is for the Thorn questline completion, a D1 original Weapon of Sorrow and a hand cannon to compete with in PVP. This service is completed as a recovery only and involves a lengthy PVE and PVP quest that is similar to the grind required for the original quest back in Destiny 1.

The Quest: Independent Study -

Step 1: The Essence - Gather 50 Hadronic Essence by completing bounties on Io (earns 5), defeating Warlocks in the Crucible, or completing Nightfalls (earns 15). 

Step 2: The Steel - Gather 50 Plasteel Plating by completing bounties on Titan (earns 5), defeating Titans in the Crucible, or completing Blind Well activities (earns 10 each).

Step 3: The Binding - Gather 50 Sapphire Wire by completing bounties on Mars (earns 5), defeating Hunters in the Crucible, or completing waves of Escalation Protocol (earns 5 per wave).

Step 4: Weaponize the Unknown - Defeat Guardians in the Crucible using Void energy or hand cannons. Using Void Hand Cannons in the Competitive or Iron Banner playlists give the most progression.

Step 5: The Chasm of Screams - Defeat the Arbiters (Sardav and Telesh), then complete a difficult version of the Savathûn's Song strike on Titan.
