Destiny Guide: How to Get Your Second Touch of Malice Quickly (If You've Messed Up Your First)

To those who misunderstood the Touch of Malice when you first unlocked it and infused it with a legendary primary and, think that you could always buy it and slowly creep it up back to 310+ or re-do the quest since it was pretty easy and straight forward, then you have just wasted your ToM.

www.destinycalcifiedfragments.com tracks your fragment progress based off of grimoire so, it is impossible to know which fragments you have for your alternate character. On the bright side, whenever you open the Dreadnaught in orbit it tells you how many fragments out of 50 (x/50), kind of like how you could track your golden chests from vanilla.

ToM is needed to get to help your team finish Hardmode now So, if you have wasted your chance on your first ToM, then get your second ToM quickly now! This guide is created to make it a lot easier for you when it came to tracking your progress obtaining Touch of Malice.

1. First, create a list that categorized the fragments based off of what zones they were in and if they required any sort of event to acquire the desired object.

2. Then, follow this video that Datto has generously made for us.

It is the first 1-23 fragments (besides 18) that can all be found during patrol.

Bonus tip: It is highly recommended hitting every chest location you know of and collecting Hadium Flakes as you go. It takes 80 flakes in all to obtain and fully upgrade your Touch of Malice, and this is by far the biggest pain in the ass. Make sure to track your progress

3. After marking these 22 fragments as found, move onto the events that activated fragments. 4 of these can be easily soloed. I also was not able to get the agnorach rune completed in my desired time, but that wasn't an issue. Make sure to track your progress

4. This is when the "fun" begins. The court of oryx fragments definitely take the longest since Stolen runes seem so hard to come by and it starts off as a hit or miss, depending on if you have ever participated in the court previously. You only need to have 1 of the tier 3 runes completed to be able to obtain 45 fragments in all. But you MUST have the Agnorach Rune completed in order to sacrifice the 2 other runes. You can also complete the Dreadnaught specific bounty while doing the court of oryx, save an antiquated rune for the final step! Make sure to track your progress

5. After getting all of the fragments possible from the Dreadnaught Patrol, do the mission Regicide and the two strikes found on the dreadnaught. All of these can be done in normal mode. Make sure to track your progress

6. If you haven't already gotten the ones from the raid, these will be the last ones for you to get. Make sure to track your progress

7. Make sure to have completed all of the quests as well for Eris (Hunger Pangs), AND MAKE SURE TO TRACK YOUR PROGRESS!!!
