    (Edit 10/1/18) I have had some people tell me that this achievement is giving them some troubles in regard to unlocking. TrueTophies states that the third milestone has been completely removed from some players as of right now due to the release of forsaken. This would not be surprising as the trials of the nine achievement is also unobtainable as of right now. I don’t play the game as much anymore, so please leave in the comments if it becomes obtainable again in the future, which it should be.

    You get this quest as soon as you reach the farm, one of the new social spaces, and talk to Shax. Access to the farm, happens pretty quickly into the game. There are three parts to the quest: (1) complete 2 matches in the quick playlist, (2), complete 2 matches in the Competitive playlist, and (3) earn glory by participating in the crucible. This last step is what I want to get into. You can do this in both quick playlist and competitive, but I would recommend quick playlist as it is easier going. You will notice that the step is connected with a percentage. Through my calculations, getting two kills (assists count) will net you 1% and completing a crucible match will net you an extra 2%. To give you an example, this is what my first game looked like

    Opponents Defeated: 24 kills/assists plus the match completion=14% (That is 24 divided by 2 is 12% plus the extra 2% giving me all in all 14% for the first match. This took me around 2 hours of playtime, but it all comes down to how you are in crucible.

    After reaching 100% on that step, return to the farm and talk to shax to complete the quest. (If the achievement doesn't unlock, just go to settings and hit change profile and sign back in. Once you reach orbit, the achievement will unlock). One thing to keep in mind with this achievement is that with the weekly reset that occurs in destiny 2, all the weekly milestones will reset. This quest is one of those milestones, so if you are at 77% progress and you don't finish it before weekly reset, the progress will reset for the week. So heads up, try to get this done in a week's time.

    Edit 1: It seems that some people are having a hard time with having the achievement pop. The guide says exactly what to do for the quest and what to do in case it doesn't pop. I don't know if it is a glitch, so it may be an issue on xbox's end, but the solution is correct. (A way that could help for those having issues with the achievement popping is trying a crucible match or two after you have turned in the quest to perhaps trigger the unlock.)

    Edit 2: With a recent update to the game, this achievement is now much easier to obtain. I have not tested out the exact precentage of kills, etc.. but you will be able to finish this in much less time than as before.

    mrbellekFound the quest! Deleted my warlock & created a new one. Immediately after meeting Zavala, ignore the next quest step to meet Ikora Ray and make a beeline for Zaxx. He should have the quest then.
    Now to grind up to 700 Valor in this insanely annoying gamemode...

    Light reforged, showed up after I fully completed the missions:
    - a Guardian Rises
    - and the exotic mission to get the riskrunner. (Pain and gain (i think is the mission name)

    One Apex ViperThis did not pop for me when I handed in the quest. It popped when I logged out and signed back in, if anyone else is having problems with this might be a option to try

    EDIT: This achievement has been changed again with the release of Beyond Light in November 2020. Haven't had a chance to play the game again yet and write a new guide.

    Up to date solution as of June 2020

    This achievement's criteria was changed when the game went free-to-play. DrOp ShOtKiNg24's solution is the only other one that's up to date, but doesn't have a lot of details so I'm posting this one.

    You can only obtain this achievement on a character created after the release of New Light (when the game went free-to-play), or an imported D1 character that you didn't play on before New Light. This is because the New Light quest isn't available to existing characters. This may be a bug ( so please comment if you find a way around this for existing characters.

    You need to progress the quest Main Quest: New Light. The first major objective is to reach power level 770. If you're new to Destiny 2, your power level is a function of the level of all your weapons and armor, so equipping a piece of gear that's higher level than what's currently in that slot will increase your power level. You start off at 750, so you should be able to hit 770 after just a few hours of play. Pick up one of the planet introduction quests and work on it. You should get plenty of new gear along the way.

    After hitting 770, you'll be asked to speak to Lord Shaxx at the Tower. He'll give you a quest Introduction: Crucible, which has two steps. First you'll need to complete a Crucible match. Then go back to Shaxx, and you'll get another step to complete a Crucible bounty. Grab all the bounties he has, play a match, and complete at least one of them and turn it in. Then go back to Shaxx to finish the quest and claim a Legendary Engram.

    The achievement should pop at this point. If it doesn't, go to settings, change profile, then go back to the character that you were just playing on and it should pop.

    F1amingHelmetAny chance you will update the guide for this achievement? I cant seem to get the Light Reforged quest, as it just can't seem to get it offered to me by Shaxx. I have started a new character and replayed the Guardian Rises quest until you return to the Tower and Shaxx still doesnt have the Light Reforged quest for me. He has bounties, but not the Light Reforged quest. Do I have to play through the whole Guardian Rises quest to get it or am I missing something? Thanks

    zeldafanjtlTo be honest, I don't know. Back when I wrote this guide, I didn't have the achievement, and I had to cobble together information from Reddit, YouTube, and various random sites + put in some trial and error until I got it to pop for me, because there weren't any clear, straightforward guides out there.

    I'm pretty busy these days, so I haven't tried to research it or tried to pop the achievement on an alt account (and that still wouldn't help if it's still different for new characters versus existing ones). If you figure anything out please let me know.

    So with the new update what I did was start a new character, ran till I got the main quest to do the crucible missions and did that. Then I did the crucible bounty missions that it asked. Then I SWITCHED PROFILES, NOT switch characters. Then I clicked on my same exact profile I was trying to get the achievement for. Clicked on my same character I was using then it popped. Hopefully this works for you
