Week 1 Lucent Moth Locations – Destiny 2 The Witch Queen

There are two Lucent Moths to find during the first week of The Witch Queen‘s Season of the Risen. They’re both scattered throughout the Throne World, which means you should have progressed through the main campaign up to the end of The Investigation.

The Week 1 Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths can be found on the following spots:

Quagmire Lucent Moth

Found near the Extraction Lost Sector inside a cave. Head towards the location and head to ground level to find an open cave.

It seems empty at first, but it’s not — an enemy group led by an elite called Ubartu-Ana shows up to greet you inside. If you pay attention, you can also notice a green dome on the right side of the cave. That’s where the Lucent Moth is.

Take all of the enemies down for the dome to unlock. All that is left is for you to approach the Lucent Moth and grab it. That’s the first!

The Apothecary Lucent Moth

Found in The Apothecary. This is the hardest of the two, as it’s quite a trip until you get to the location. For starters, we’re heading towards the other end of the cave (not where we just came in) to begin making our way to the Alluring Curtain.

The cursor marks where we’re heading, although the map isn’t very helpful.

Make your way through the massive entrance after the gate, always heading south (if you’re looking at the map). Continue forward until you come across the stairs that lead to the castle. Instead of entering the castle, you’re going to head right of the entrance and turn on the corner.

After you take the turn, continue forward. If you haven’t by now, I highly recommend to just hop on your Sparrow to go faster. Head past the house-looking structure on the right to find an open area. Stick to the wall on the left until the other end.

The next stop in our search for Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths is on that massive structure with several windows. Notice the platforms on its side with the spike-shaped statues? Hop on those to the other end, turn the corner, and head towards the open door after the gap.

The door takes you towards a large, empty structure with wet floors and long stairs. Enjoy the scenery until you exit to the other end, and into the Alluring Curtain location. As we continue forward, we’re going to be sticking to the left side.

Hop on the platforms until you stumble upon a well illuminated statue inside an open room. There may be enemies nearby, so keep an eye out for them.

Got into the room? The next step involves the interactable light there, which you may remember from the campaign missions. Activate it to gain Deep Sight and spawn a few platforms ahead of you. You’re going to hop on the platforms and make all the way up to the tower.

Once on top of the tower, jump across to the platform that is hanging on the air, and then jump once more towards the castle-like structure that has three open doors.

Now, don’t go inside any of the doors — instead, head to the left, where there is a massive yard that looks like a cemetery. Once in there, you’re going want to go around the statues to find another one of the interactable lights to activate Deep Sight.

Once you have Deep Sight, look to the opposite side of the gate in front of the light — there is another hanging platform, which is where we’re heading next.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 24

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 25

Notice the open door on the other end of the gap? That’s our destination. Jump across and head inside.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 24

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 27

After going through the door, there is yet another yard with stairs. Instead of heading inside its open doors, however, take a detour to the left to find two smaller doors.

Surprise: Another large yard awaits, but we’re ignoring this one too. Instead, you want to head inside the lone door that is in between the staircases, covered in red flowers.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 30

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 31

Get past the purple-lit statue and into the great hall inside. Continue moving forward (or stop to take down the enemies, up to you) and, once you head inside the corridor with paths on each side, take the one on the left.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 32

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 33

Make your way through the left corridor and get ready to go down a long staircase. Once you’re inside the big hall, drop to the left and head to the other side of the door located on ground level.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 35

At long last, this is The Apothecary location. You’re almost done with the second of Week 1’s Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths. Take the path on the right by taking the large staircases there, and stick to the wall. The destination is on the far end with the statues and a few enemies roaming about.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 36

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 37

You’re going to stumble upon a long monolith — use it as reference as you have to get past it and continue moving forward.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 38

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 39

Follow the long path ahead of you. You’re going to stumble upon a ramp on the right that leads towards a castle — but we’re ignoring that one too.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 40

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 41

After a bit more trekking (always heading forward), you’re going to come across another one of the interactable lights that grant Deep Sight.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 42

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 43

Now here is the fun part: After you activate Deep Sight, you need to shoot five targets in an specific order for the Lucent Moth to appear. It’s not too hard as they’re all around the light, which we’re taking as starting point for reference.

The first target is behind a short structure to the right of the starting point.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 44

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 45

In the position you’re at the moment, the second target is on the right of the starting point — head down the stairs to see it on the side of the staircase that you first used to arrive at this area.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 46

From the starting point, the third target is on the right side of the staircase, right next to the door that leads to that small room underneath the light’s location. Head down to ground level and shoot it.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 47

From your current position, double jump to the right and back of the starting point, where you can find the fourth target right below the bush there.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 48

The fifth and final target is inside the room underneath the staircase.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 49

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 50

That is all. If you don’t get all five targets on the first try, don’t worry — wait for a couple seconds on the starting point and the light should reappear to try again. Now, head over there to grab the second Lucent Moth.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths 51

Gathering Destiny 2 Witch Queen Lucent Moths is related to the Destiny 2 Lepidopterist Triumph. In order to make progress, head back to the Quagmire and visit Fynch. Instead of talking to them, turn around and head inside the cave. Two markers appear on both ends — interact with them to place the Lucent Moths.

That is all for Week 1!
