Ishtar Collective - Echo Chamber
The Guardian’s ship drops from orbit into Venus surface.
Ikora Rey - The Vex still mourn the loss of the Nexus Mind. But for the Vex, time is relative. In one moment, a construct is lost. In the next, it is reborn. When a powerful part of the network is lost, the Restorative Mind is summoned. It has begun creating a bridge through time. A bridge that, if it is not destroyed, will see the Nexus Mind reborn.
The Guardians transmat to the surface on the Ishtar Sink, Venus.
Ghost - I’m detecting a series of concentric barriers around the bridge site.
Ikora Rey - They protect the time bridge. And seek to undo what we have done.
The Guardians proceed to Campus 9, Venus, where they encounter Fallen. The pathway is barred. The fight Begins.
Ikora Rey - Unless I’m mistaken, barrier technology of this nature is unstable.
Ghost - She’s right. Find an Arc source. You can use it to short out the barriers.
The Guardians find an Arc source (Relic), and proceed to defeat waves of Fallen enemies as they fight their way to the first barrier. Getting past the barrier, the Guardians encounter Vex, retrieve a second relic, and continue to fight their way through the wave of vex enemies until they reach a third gate. More Vex opposition.
Ikora Rey - Did you know the Vex are organic? Within their metal frame, a heart beats. And they shudder at your approach-an approximation of fear.
The Guardians continue to fight their way through the Ishtar Sink. They confront both Vex and Fallen making their way to the Endless Steps area. The last gate is breached.
Ikora Rey - The Nexus Mind must have been a vital resource. The very appearance of the Restorative Mind means we have the Vex off balance. Press the advantage, Guardian.
The guardians reach their destination. The Echo Chamber.
Ghost - That’s the time bridge. And the Restorative Mind!
The Restorative Mind is shielded inside the time bridge. An Arc Source capacitor materializes in front of the Guardians.
Ghost - That capacitor just lit up. You know what to do.
The Guardian retrieves the Arc Source and places it into the capacitor across the chamber. The time bridge begins to open and the Restorative Mind prepares itself for battle.
Ghost - That’s got its attention.
The final fight begins. The restorative Mind exits the time bridge and posts itself above the Arc Source to prevent the Guardians from retrieving it. That does not stop the Guardians. They continue to retrieve the relic while fighting the continuing waves of Vex the Restorative Mind calls upon for protection. It has no choice but to follow the relic and lower its shield, allowing the Guardians to inflict massive amounts of damage. It returns to the time bridge as a last resort. The walls begin to close in and shift left to right, as a great deal of Vex enemies begin to spawn. The Guardians continue to fight. They retrieve the relic and place it in the capacitor one last time. The Restorative Mind fires its Medusa’s Gaze to no avail. Its shield is down. The guardians deal their final strike. The Restorative Mind is destroyed.
Ikora Rey - The weft and weave of space and time is intact. You have made whole the past again. The destruction of the Restorative Mind will ripple across the stars. And its deeds will be undone over and again. Very well done, Guardian.
