I just started playing Destiny, and am following the main story line. I finished the mission "Shrine of Oryx", and returned to the tower. I see the little "go to" icons, but they just lead me around in circles.

Where should I be going, next?

  • there are a bunch of "go to" icons in the tower.. but they are not mission directives. They are just to direct you around the tower; sign posts. Mission directives should be colourful, signposts should be grey. What colour are yours?

  • @CloseVoters, Detiny has a pretty linear story line. In terms of the main story, there is only one direction for "next". I feel another user will be able to answer this quite quickly, OP. Just in case, I might also enquire about how many planets you see on your starting map. I know that with the addition of Taken King, it is possible to "unlock all the levels" before the story takes you there, which can make it a bit harder to identify the next point of call.

    I think this is a valid question as TTK has made the mission flow (particularly for the main campaign) much less intuitive.

    "yo dawg I heard yo like story missions. So I opened up all the story missions, so you can get confused, and have to revisit the same ones again, later"

  • @Timelord64 as long as they are not putting missions inside missions, so you can play missions while you are playing missions, I think it's fine

(This is in case when the questions stays, else just delete my answer. I however think this is a legitmate question since the changes from TTK)

With the TTK rework they changed some of the story flow, however i think there are two options left. You completed the "Shrine of Oryx", which means you cleared the "Sword of Crota" mission (it is a prerequisite). The only mission left to do on the Moon is "Chamber of Night", which also has Sword of Crota as prerequisite (as far as i know, there is a Dark Below mission, but it should come later). Now if you have done that one before the Shrine mission, the other option is you have to go to next planet (Spoiler!).


One of the dialog in Chamber of Night is: "GHOST: Signal dropped. I got some broken coordinates--Venus, Northern Hemisphere. Ishtar region. Great. What do we do now?" And the next mission takes place on Venus. I am guessing he is stuck between the planet change


I believe this is your first play through and that the next mission is Strangers Call on Venus. This mission is player level locked.
