    Just to clarify some misinformation circulating on the internet and in-game:

    -You NEED to have completed the Second Dream quest
    -You NEED to have completed the Sedna Junction and it's requirements, even if you've already unlocked Sedna before Specters of the Rail and the new Solar Map
    -You NEED to play through Pluto missions in order to reach the Sedna Junction before you can challenge the Saryn Specter (meaning you must have completed any missions on the white line that leads into the Sedna Junction)

    On Orokin Principle Challenges to unlock the Sedna Junction:

    -You CAN complete the same challenge type more than once and all attempts will count towards the Sedna Junction requirements (for example: The co-op platform challenge which rewards the mod Coaction Drift spawned on two different occasions for me, both were counted toward the requirement upon completion)
    -For some of these you may want at least two players, the platform challenges can be done with two players and the use of specters/eximus/Loki decoy/using your operator's focus ability
    -The music challenge room where you play Simon Says does NOT count towards the junction requirement
    -These challenge rooms ONLY spawn on Lua, not in the void or on derelicts
    -Multiple challenge rooms can spawn in a single mission, the most I've had is two
    -Guides for each challenge room can be found here under the header "Halls of Ascension":
    http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Orokin_Moon
    -This is also a fantastic, commentary-free video demonstrating how to do each challenge solo (except the co-op platform one), great if you are also trying to complete the "Seven Principles" achievement:


    Also, just some notes on the quest itself:

    -You will need an archwing to complete part of the quest (Edit: The archwing does NOT need to be fully levelled, you simply need access to one) - Credit: Vr English
    -There is a temporary "point of no return," so make sure you come equipped with your best gear
    -Having an operator hood equipped will NOT prevent your operator's face from being seen in cutscenes


    Good luck! You're in for a treat.

    Vr EnglishCame to post a guide and you helpfully beat me to it.

    Very helpful comments, for anyone panicking about the archwing section, you don't need it levelled up you just need to be able to use one.

    Best guide to accessing War Within on the internet!

    I would perhaps add comments in a spoiler section about the mission, the bit with the maw for example was a pain.

    EvolvedMonkey97I will add a note next to the archwing comment, I could inadvertently cause someone to grind their archwing to level 30! That would be brutal. I won't add a spoiler section though, I think this quest is best experienced blind, even if some sections are a little difficult.

    For example:

    Its Uncle KevDo you get the mods every time? I already did them all once with the achievement prior to the rail way thing.

    EvolvedMonkey97Yes, mods drop every time you complete a challenge room.

    EvolvedMonkey97Drift mod farming is a thing, though uncommon.

    TESC0VEEIf you did the challenge rooms before do you have to do them again?
    Posted by TESC0VEE on 10 Jun 17 at 06:06
    Shadow 00 FoxIf you haven't done them since the solar map update, then yes, I'm quite sure you have to do them again

    EvolvedMonkey97@TESC0VEE Just highlight the Sedna junction in the solar map to bring up the requirements. If you have met them, then you are golden. If you haven't played for a while, then you likely need to do them again. Junction requirements were not retroactive when the new solar map dropped.

    Skullys33I've been having a pretty awful game breaking glitch with this quest. When you're on your ship controlling the operator trying to get to the cockpit, my game will either not open the first door at all, kill me over and over randomly regardless of health, and/or restart the whole section for no reason. All without being able to skip the 2-3 minute cutscene. To fix the door not opening problem, restart your game fully and try again. You have to stay alive until a waypoint is put over the door. If you die before that, no waypoint will show up at all and you'll need to start over again.

    Still working on getting through the rest. Not looking good so far.

    You can't abort the mission or play the game in any other capacity when in this section of the game, so I currently can't play at all with this glitch going on.
