Ruins of Wrath in Destiny 2 is one of the three missions in the Shattered Realm rotation.

From August 2021 to February 2022, the Shattered Realm's Forest of Echoes, Debris of Dreams, and Ruins of Wrath missions are accessible for those in Destiny 2 to complete as part of the Season of the Lost. Only one Shattered Realm mission is available at any given time — with the next one cycling in on the next weekly reset. Here's a breakdown of how to complete the Ruins of Wrath mission in Destiny 2.

Ruins of Wrath Destiny 2 Guide: How to Complete

Of the three Shattered Realm missions, Ruins of Wrath is likely the most straightforward to complete.

Similar to the other two, players in Ruins of Wrath will need to activate beacons around the field to activate the Ley Lines and ultimately trigger a boss fight.

The first beacon is located right in front of where players start the level, reached by jumping from platform to platform before activating it. Once activated, a Hive horde will spawn but it should be relatively easy to clear.

Next, the Ley Lines will direct players to another beacon, which will spawn another Hive horde once spawned. Once again, just be sure to use the map's environment tactically and the battle should be pretty easy to beat.

Finally, head out to the boss room for the final fight with An Xohol, Jaws of Xivu Arath.

At some point after dealing enough damage, An Xohol will sub itself out with an immunity shield, during which point players will need to defeat the Ritualist of Xivu Arath and stand where it died to receive the Wrathful buff, pierce the shield and do damage to the boss once again.

If you are playing through the Wayfinder's Voyage quest, you simply need to complete the active Shattered Realm mission, such as Ruins of Wrath, to progress the respective step. However, the completionists out there should note that there are a ton of new secrets and optional collectibles to be had introduced weekly in each of the Shattered Realm missions.
