A lot of rumors has been spread on the Destiny Universe that there's a secret on the Paradox Mission in Destiny: The Taken King.
One of our fellow Guardian who started the mission with some of his friends got teleported do The Venus part from the Atheon fight. Killed a Ultra minotaur. At the end they were able to open a chest, in there was praedyths ghost.
He also posted proofs which you can see below.
Update #1: They've tried it on the second run but ended with nothing. They were unable to re-create the scenario. So the question now is.....Is is just a glitch on the Paradox Mission? If it is, then how can that be triggered?
Update #2: Now, another Guardian has replicated the same method and ended up with something really really interesting!
IT LOOKS LIKE THE SECRET IN THE PARADOX MISSION IS FINALLY CONFIRMED!
The new group of Guardians replicated the whole step. Here's what they did that triggered the same scenario:
Finish the mission up to where you need to scan the skeleton. Have two people in your fireteam - one goes to the skeleton, the other goes to the jumping puzzle and follows it down to the Vex gate out side the throne room. Our guy got there with Bones of Eao (not necessary but recommended) from the very bottom. Now do the following:
- Have a third person join your fireteam.
- Have the scanner scan the skeleton as the third person is still joining, then have them kill themselves with a rocket.
- Have the person at the portal stand in it as the scan happens, and then kill themselves when the portal turns into a darkness area. This will cause a wipe.
- When the third person joins, you will all respawn in the secret area.
Here's their recent mission on DTR: http://destinytracker.com/dg/3726215834
Here's a video of their run:
Here's some screenshots on their run posted by his teammates.
FAQ: You do not need to be pledged to FWC. The third person joining delays the mission end countdown to get the darkness zone; you need the darkness zone in order to get a team wipe. The quest item sits in your Mission items like the Banshee fusion rifles and is to be handed into Lakshmi of FWC; it is STRONGLY advised that you do not hand it in. Handing it in rewards you with faction rep like the fusion rifles, but to your pledged faction instead of Banshee. You also receive the Grimoire Card "Mystery: Praedyth's Door" and 5 Motes upon turning it in.
Update #3: MISSION IS CONFIRMED TO BE A STORY NODE, NOT A QUEST.
