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.
Among 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:
|“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|
|Blade of Crota||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.

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.
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 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.
- The Wakening // ?
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.
