Destiny 2 Forsaken Well of Wishes offers easy raid loot, hilarity


Including Destiny's version of Halo's Grunt Birthday Party.

The Destiny 2 Forsaken Well of Wishes raid room has been discovered, offering players — including us under-levelled, solo-types — the chance to unlock loot, keys and even the Destiny version of Halo‘s classic Grunt Birthday Party.

Anyone can access the room, really — you can get to it solo without any combat. Here’s what to do.

How to get to the Well of Wishes raid room

To get to the Well of Wishes, load up the Last Wish Raid and look to the left of the room you first enter. You can climb up a platform to follow a purple path that will eventually lead to the wish room itself.

Here’s a video from Gladd that shows exactly how to get there. Skip to 1:31 to get to the actual tutorial bit.

The Well of Wishes is basically a room with a giant wall that lets you input different codes into it. That’s done by shooting each circle a certain amount of times to toggle between a series of images. There are 14 total codes — or Wishes — that can be input by doing this. Once a code has been entered, you need to step on the button on the floor just in front of the wall itself.

Here you go — with huge thanks to the Raid Secrets subreddit. Click on the Wish you’re after to see its pattern in a new window.
