  • GHOST: The more we learn about the Vex, the more I understand why our Exo friend is so worried about them. During the Collapse, the Vex transformed the planet Mercury into a machine in days. They would have spread to every planet if the Traveler hadn't stopped them. We need to get into the Black Garden. We need a Gate Lord's head.


  • GHOST: First thing we're going to have to do is get me into the Vex network so I can lure out a Gate Lord. I'll lead the way.

The Guardian heads in the direction of the Ember Caves.

  • GHOST: Here's what we have on Gate Lords: "Three stories tall. Protect the realms the Vex keep locked out of time." Time? That can't be right.

The Guardian enters The Citadel.

  • GHOST: I'm picking up a heavy conflux nearby. I can use it to get into their network.

The Guardian approaches the conflux and deploys the Ghost to scan it.

  • GHOST: And I thought you had the hard job. Okay, we've got to head for a place called the Endless Steps. That's where we'll find the Gate Lord.

The Guardian proceeds through Waking Ruins and approaches Campus 9.

  • GHOST: To find the Gate Lord, I sort of had to mess with all their transfer gates here. You're probably going to have your hands full.

The Guardian approaches a gate.

  • GHOST: The Gates are waking. They'll keep coming unless you can shut them down.

If the Guardian does not destroy any Gates for a period of time:

  • GHOST: You've got to destroy the Gates! They're still coming! Kill those Gates!

If the Guardian destroys a Gate:

  • GHOST: That worked! Keep it up!

The Guardian continues through the path and enters the Endless Steps.

  • GHOST: And that is where we'll find the Gate Lord. Let's go.

The Guardian clears out all of the Vex at the top of the steps.

  • GHOST: I guess you're going to have to step inside the ring.

The Guardian stands on the sync plate for a few seconds.

  • GHOST: Here we go.

Zydron, Gate Lord appears. The Guardian kills it.

  • GHOST: Nice work! This better get us into the Black Garden. Let's go get our key from the Queen.
