Some newly datamined lore from the Trials of Osiris lore book, “Trials and Tribulations” has been unearthed, and it appears to indicate that going flawless in the newly returned game mode might be bad for the health of the solar system.

Going Flawless

To go flawless in Trials of Osiris, you need to win seven matches without losing any. This is something that Guardians have been doing ever since the game mode first appeared in Destiny 1, but now it looks like it’s attracting the wrong sort of company.

Usually Guardians get one more page every time they go flawless, but dataminers have uncovered the entire thing.

It starts out simple enough. Brother Vance is researching the Lighthouse, and he discovers that it reacts to the deaths of Guardians. To experiment further, he sets up Trials of Osiris. With more Guardians dying, he can track the reactions of the Lighthouse. Of course these aren’t real deaths, just the deaths that Guardians can recover from with their Ghosts.

At some point Brother Vance visits Mara Sov, who warns him that this is dangerous. Furthermore, she instructs him to destroy all of his research.

As you’d expect from Brother Vance, he just continues anyway, experimenting all the while with what he calls “the music of death”. He stops Trials of Osiris when a Guardian permanently dies, but then brings them back.

He seeks out the council of Osiris, who has now turned up again. His mentor, and the man he worships, tells him to stop this awful experiment.

In the final lore entry, Vance has managed to create an Infinite Simulacrum, similar to the Infinite Forest, and sees the potential outcome of his efforts. He sees what is described as an angular/hungering and patient yawning deep. A shadow that reaches across Mercury. He sees various Lighthouses falling to this darkness.

There’s one thing we can all be certain of, darkness is bad. In a recent bit of lore from Bungie we heard about Osiris visiting a darkness ship and bringing back a seed. Perhaps this same darkness ship will eventually come to Mercury.

Whatever happens, it’s almost certainly linked to Trials of Osiris, but will we stop? Of course not. I think that while we’re distracted trying to bring Rasputin’s systems back online, we’ll be surprised by what happens over on Mercury next season.

I'm an avid Destiny 2 fan and player. I fell in love with Destiny 1 during the early alpha and have been hooked by the universe ever since. I really enjoy playing with other Guardians, speculating about the lore, and writing about as much of the Destiny universe as I can.
