For the quest in Year 1, see A Light in the Dark (Year 1).

A Light in the Dark is a quest that ultimately rewards the exotic hand cannon Thorn.

The quest is started by obtaining the Jagged Purpose mission item, which is dropped randomly upon completion of a weekly bounty given by Shiro-4. Bringing this item to Eris Morn will start the first step of the quest.
