Spine of Keres Location

With the help of these steps, you will easily reach the Spine of Keres Location. Follow it carefully and you will reach there and if you are getting stuck somewhere do watch the video given down below.

  • Spawn at Divilian Mists.
  • Go towards Rheasilvia, opposite the Strand.
  • See on your left, you will see a crystal cave, which is also known as an Observatory by many guardians.
  • Move towards the big gate which is on the left-hand side.
  • Pop the Tincture while on the bridge and then on the left, you will see the invisible platforms
  • Do follow the path (don’t move in other directions) and you’ll reach the portal.

What is Shattered Ruins Ascendant Challenge 

For those who are not familiar with the ascendant challenges are weekly rotational playlists in the Dreaming City, cool black and white ambiance,  involving jumping, taken and are generally fun. These are also essential for the Cursebreaker seal, by doing all 6 of them you earn the Secret Victories emblem, which is part of the Dreaming City collection. Some also contain secret eggs and Marasena bones.


The Shattered Ruins is one of the hardest ascendant challenge, if it’s not the hardest for you. It doesn’t have the indestructible knights but instead, it has you jump up to the top of a ruined caste/fort/shrine while taken snipers and small boops or mines (there are 2 versions of this challenge if you wipe with the boops it gets slightly easier, as the boops are changed into mines.), shoot at you. 

How to Complete Shattered Ruins Ascendant Challenge 

To start this challenge, you head spawn in the Dreaming City landing zone and head to the NPC vendor, Petra Venj. Petra could be in either of the zones of the map, as the Dreaming City is on a three-week rotation. When you pick up the bounty for the challenge, read the small cryptic blurb from Toland.


The Shattered Ruins’ blurb reads as follows: “Climb the bones and you will find your ruin.” The only relation to any bones in the Dreaming City is the Spine of Keres, so head towards that. You will need a tincture of queensfoil whose steps are the same as mentioned in Forfeit Shrine Ascendant Challenge see the ascendant portals, so use one from your inventory.

If you don’t have it in your inventory, in Harbinger’s Seclude at the bottom part of the building you find two ahamkara skulls. The one called Huginn sells them for 50 baryon boughs a pop. You could stack up on 5, so I suggest buying as many as you can afford. It’s a good idea to bring a sniper or another long-range weapon because there are a lot of annoying taken snipers, which you will need to get rid of as fast as possible.


After you drank the tincture of queensfoil, you have to go all the way to the other end of the Spine of Keres where you originally came into the Dreaming City. Head towards the observatory where you give your offering to the oracle. As soon as you reach the bridge leading to the entrance, turn right and you could see the glimmering outline of a platform below you. Jump on it and then the other, and the other. Jump on the pathway heading towards the circle with the mobs, then onto the rock opposite you. Then onto the next rock. On top of this, you can see your portal in the distance. Jump through it, and you are in the playlist.

The objective is to reach the top of the ruined castle or whatever so go to the middle platform and up the stairs. Jump on the nest platform, then the one on your left. From that to the big column in the middle and then turn 180 degrees and jump at the staircase behind you. Then essentially you can run contraclockwise or clockwise jumping onto the platform’s front of you. In the video, I run clockwise which is the harder route, and less obvious. Watch out for the hobgoblins and kill them as soon as you see them.

You will have to jump on top of the statue’s head standing at 1 o’clock in reference to the entrance. From there you jump onto the thin platform, and onto the circular platform at the top. In the middle, a taken phalanx will spawn with several thralls. Kill those and the challenge is done. If you are looking for the eggs, and the lore, the lore is on the statue’s hand, which you are not using to get on top of the structure, and there an is egg right across the top of the head of the statue you use to get up, to your right. The last egg is on the top of the whole structure you can see it from the circular platform.

  1. I completed this today and no chest appeared, only the portal back. Also the bounty didn’t register as completed. Is this a bug? Known issue?
