New Bounties, Quests, Urn of Sacrifice

Published on: Nov 28, 2014 @ 13:21

We’ve been talking about The Dark Below a lot lately, and for good reason – it’s being released on December 9th!

This article will serve as a complete guide to everything we know about the new Tower vendor, Eris Morn.

Update: The following video is now missing some of the bounties, as more were added to the game since we published it – but we’ve outlined them all in this article.

All of the following information and much more is located here as well.


eris morn crota's baneAmong the last of those Guardians who faced Crota, Eris works in the shadows to bring about his end.

As you complete bounties and quests for Eris, you’ll increase your Crota’s Bane reputation.



Increasing your reputation will allow you to purchase items.

The confirmed faction rewards are the following:

Name Type Glimmer Cost
“Emerald Light” Bond 2,500
“Song of Dusk”  Bond 2,500
Cloak of the Hidden Cloak 2,500
Hood of the Spawn Cloak 2,500
Mark of the Hidden Mark 2,500
Mark of the Spawn Mark 2,500
Middaye Shader 1,500
Predawne Shader 1,500
Sunsetting Shader 1,500
Blade of Crota Emblem 1,000
Eris Morn Emblem Unknown
Dark Harvest Emblem 1,000
Sigil of Night Emblem 1,000

There’s also Exotic-looking (though apparently Legendary) class armor, but these can’t be purchased:

It’s unknown how we’ll acquire these, but I’d guess it’s from completing the content she has for us, which you can read further below in this article.


Legendary Gauntlets & Murmur

Finally, the best gear she has (for sale?) are powerful gauntlets – 1 per class:

These gauntlets have random perks, which you can see on the items’ pages.


Murmur is a Rare fusion rifle rewarded from Eris, and it can eventually be upgraded to its Legendary version, also called Murmur.

Update: Bungie streamlined the process of obtaining the Legendary Murmur, by simply having it as a quest reward, though you’ll still need to use a Runed Core to upgrade its defense to the fullest.

We have an entire article detailing the Necrochasm upgrade process, so please check that out if you haven’t already.

Black Wax Idols will be used much more in The Dark Below. As you’ve noticed, Xûr no longer sells Heavy Ammo Synthesis; it’s being sold by Eris now. She’s currently selling them for 5 Black Wax Idols each. She also sells some Legendary materials for the Idols as well, which you can read about here.

The Husk Reaper bounty may be one of the prerequisites for obtaining the Husk of the Pit. For more about this weapon, click here.

The first story mission, The Dark Below, will introduce us to Eris and have us start these quests.

Hover over the quests to see their descriptions and Eris’ dialogue when they’re completed.





Though unconfirmed, there’s a very high possibility that we will need to start this quest to eventually earn Murmur, by then completing The Wakening.

Urn of Sacrifice

    So where’s the Warlock-specific bounties? I see a few for Bladedancers and Strikers, but where’s the love for the True masters of the Light?

    • I’d be surprised if they weren’t added in the future

      • ƩɴɪɢϺΛ™

        I thought this was off of the database files? Are they then incomplete? Just curios. And bored at work doing nothing.

        • Yes, they’re not 100%

          Check out the vendor page: – you can see some names/descriptions aren’t complete

        • Christian

          The DLC’s assets wont be fully installed until release. Expect to see your warlock class missions in future.

    • Aquabrother

      Chase the Dark*Kill Hive with Axion Bolt.

    I’m very intrigued by the upcoming DLC. Will have to nab me a season pass soon.

    I am also very impressed, as a big fan of console games, you NEVER get DLCs with this much content. Especially not FPS games. It really has blown me away.

    Halo gets me 4 new maps usually.

    Same with Cod but perhaps a new weapon.

    The theme recurs.

    The content from this doesn’t even seem to fit in 10 articles! I must thank Bungie for not just giving us some multiplayer content, but a whole new world of activities to endure.


    Are we ever gonna get third subclasses?

    • no time soon, if ever

      • Deuce (PS4)

        Actually the sub-classes will be introduced during the Wolves dlc

  • This article is super helpful, thank you. I have it bookmarked so I can check it out once I start playing the DLC on Tuesday. Top notch info!

  • Got the murmur after completing “The Wakening” story mission. It’s Legendary right off the bat

    • Yeah they must have changed the way they did that for w/e reason. They changed its description awhile ago too, just didn’t think much of it, but around that time is when they must have decided to make it a simpler reward.

  • Alejandro Bortoni

    just a question for the people who wrote this article, how the hell do I fullfill this mission?, is there a database I can look into to find what do I need to kill, Im asking this because my game is in spanish so I have to look into pictures to find out what you guys are saying since the name of every hive is different. please respond!!!!!!

  • totab

    How do you get Nechrocasm tho

    • Byron Frank

      Kill the Blades of Crota, it drops directly to your inventory like a raid drop.

  • RealTalk

    Stuck at ritual of the forsaken quest… It just says go to moon but where specifically?

    • we’ll have a video guide up for it soon
