The Whetstone encounter is a part of the Deep Dive exercise, however there are a couple of circumstances you have to fulfil earlier than you may activate it. Although I element the method in-depth in my Unique fish guide, here is a fast recap of what it’s essential do:

  • Catch the distinctive Unique fish from Nessus, Savathun’s Throne World, and the EDZ.
  • Dunk them within the HELM tank to get the Damaged Blades.
  • Use the Damaged Blades to activate the three Hive statues within the Deep Dive exercise.

To entry Whetstone, you need to full the primary two Deep Dive encounters, then search for an open door within the facet of the second encounter’s room. Inside, there are three Hive statues that every fireteam member should activate to decrease the barrier so you can begin the encounter. 

If you do not have DIM or a technique to get weapons out of your vault in an exercise, be certain that to deliver the Divinity hint rifle in the event you’ve acquired it, a Nicely of Radiance, and a crit spot DPS weapon like a linear fusion rifle, since all of them make the second boss rather a lot simpler.

After operating via a few underwater sections—be careful for the gradual mines—and preventing a couple of enemies, you will drop down right into a room where Khul, Executioner Knight spawns alongside some Taken minotaurs. The central mechanic of the Whetstone encounter is the Lethal Sharp buff, and every time you kill one among these Honed Minotaurs, your entire fireteam will get a stack of it. When you’ve three stacks of the buff listed on the left facet of your display, you can deal injury to the boss.

After he disappears, head up the steps into The Drowning space and defeat the enemies till the boss spawns within the subsequent room. To open the barrier to the boss, you need to shoot the darkness node within the centre of the room, then a second node hidden beneath the steps straight forward of you. As soon as within the room, it is the identical deal as earlier than, besides the Honed Minotaurs are actually protected by limitations. Behind the primary pillar on the appropriate, you will discover a third darkness node you may shoot to decrease these, letting you kill the minotaurs and defeat the boss.

As talked about earlier, each the Divinity hint rifle and a Nicely of Radiance are very helpful to have for Omen, Blade of the Black Terrace. Omen is a Tormenter whose solely crit spot is his chest, making him very annoying to break with out a Divinity bubble to shoot as a substitute. If you do not have Divinity, then a minimum of deliver a Nicely and a crit spot DPS weapon like a linear fusion rifle so you may shoot his chest.

This encounter works the identical because the earlier one by way of killing Honed Minotaurs and getting stacks of the Lethal Sharp buff—the difficult half is that the boss enviornment is a little bit of a maze and he is chasing you. The minotaurs often spawn in three of the 4 corners within the enviornment, in order quickly as you drop down, head left and right beneath the doorways to search for them. In the event you take lengthy sufficient, they’re going to be highlighted with a marker so you could find them simpler.

Whenever you’ve killed three, head again to the centre, use your Nicely, and deal injury till your buff runs out. In the event you’ve broken Omen sufficient, the Honed Minotaurs will now spawn within the central a part of the sector round you. Purchase the Lethal Sharp buff from the minotaurs once more, and kill Omen earlier than the time runs out or earlier than he kills all of you, in any other case you will be booted again to orbit and have to begin the entire Deep Dive once more.

As soon as Omen is defeated, you may head via into the following room and commune with the darkness statue to get your Depraved Implement scout rifle.
