Decryption Research Mission Tips & Tricks

4~5. Rescuing Arcanists From Skorpions - Tips

Attack Webs To Free Arcanists

Attack Webs To Free Arcanists

Webs are marked around the area using yellow "break" icons. Head to these locations, and destroy the webs to free the trapped Arcanists within.

Evade The Skorpion's Spit

Evade The Skorpion

Skorpions will be able to attack you from range by spitting. Their spit will apply an acid debuff to you when it comes in contact with you. Stay mobile to avoid getting hit by the Skorpion's spit.

7. Returning Fragments To The Relic - Tips

Use Your Compass To Locate The Fragments

Use Your Compass To Locate The Fragments

Your compass will be useful in locating the 6 fragments scattered around the area. It will show you the general direction of the fragments, and fully glow when you are next to it. The compass can be found at the top of your screen.

No Need To Combat Enemies

No Need To Combat Enemies

You do not need to fight enemies during this section of the mission. You just need to focus on returning the fragments to the Shaper Relic.

You Cannot Fly When Carrying Fragments

You Cannot Fly When Carrying Fragments

When carrying fragments, you will not be able to fly. Pull up a shield or use evasive maneuvers to avoid getting attacked by the Brutes!

Shaper Will Spawn Brutes

Shaper Will Spawn Brutes

Brutes will constantly be on your tail as you collect and return fragments. Brutes are mainly melee enemies, but will occasionally chuck projectiles at you. They are also heavily armored so it is best to use Acid attacks to defeat Brutes blocking your way.

Steer Clear Of Seeker Mines

Steer Clear Of Seeker Mines

While returning fragments, Scar enemies will start to spawn. Keep a close eye on your surroundings since there may be Seeker Mines actively hunting you down! When you notice the area around you glow red, evade or pull up your shield!

9~10. Attuning & Activating The Vault - Tips

Pass Through The Spheres To Attune The Vault

Pass Through The Spheres To Attune The Vault

In order for you to attune the vault, you need to pass through the spheres in under a minute. This is relatively easy to do since the spheres are easily distinguished from the rest of the environment.

Stay Inside The Vault Area To Activate It

Stay Inside The Vault Area To Activate It

The Vault will need you to stay in its area while it activates. Stand your ground in this area since Frost Wolven & Skorpions will spawn and attack you. Leaving the area will reverse the Vault activation's progress.

12. Destroy Dominion Machines - Tips

Focus On Destroying The Machines

Focus On Destroying The Machines

Your main priority is to destroy the machines since there is a time limit of two minutes. Try to engage in as little combat as possible while destroying the Dominion Machines.

13. Defeating Dominion Troops - Tips

Focus Fire On The Valkyries

Focus Fire On The Valkyries

Valkyries are Dominion troops with Storm Javelins. They float in the air, and hurl elemental attacks that apply debuffs when they hit you. Shoot them down in the air to stun them, and leave them vulnerable to your attacks for a brief time.
