Steps three, four, and five – Descent, Discovery, and Volmar the Tempted – all take place within the Pit of Heresy Dungeon. You only need to complete one of the four main encounters in the dungeon. We’ve covered everything you need to know Pit of Heresy in our complete walkthrough.

For step three of the journey, Descent, complete the first encounter and continue until you reach the door wall. Instead of going down and right to the ogre maze, look up and left.

Seek the one door without a rune above it. If you use the door directly in front of you as a starting point, the door you want is one level up and two columns to the left.

Go up to the door and go inside. Inside is a Hive runestone that you can interact with, which will grant you the next step in the quest, Discovery.

Go into the Ogre Maze for Discovery. Instead of ducking into the middle caves, keep left until you reach the cliff. Jump down onto the lower platform until you reach a slab in the ground covered in Hive runes.

Activate the plate to raise three floating platforms out of the abyss, with another orb of light on the last platform. Grab the ball of light, go back to the main area and go right.

Take the tunnels to the right until you see red-lit doors flanked by braziers like the ones you lit at the start of The Journey quest. You can interact with the second door; Don’t worry if the prompt doesn’t fill out correctly. Interact with both braziers to continue to the next step.

How to Defeat Volmar the Tempted: The Journey Step 5

Go through the small maze until you reach a starting area four hive runes in each corner. These are the four elemental dread buffs that you will be using in the boss fight that is coming up soon.

As soon as you enter the next room, Volmar the tempted appears, a boss-level hive wizard that is completely invincible at first.

You and each member of your fireteam receive one fear buff based on one of the four damage elements available during Shadowkeep:

  • Kinetic (Neutral Terror)
  • Void (Abyssal Terror)
  • Arc (Thundering Terror)
  • Solar (Fiery Terror)

To damage the boss you must collect the ball of light in the center of the arena and then interact with the right rune to activate it and deal damage.

  • abysmal fear: Top left of the upper platform
  • Thundering Terror: Lower left in the basement
  • fiery fear: Upper right on the lower floor
  • neutral fear: Bottom right on the upper platform

Once you immerse the light, you can damage the boss, but only with the element specified in your dread buff. All other items are registered as immune. Repeat this process as many times as it takes to kill Volmar – and don’t die. A full team wipe (or a single death in solo mode) sends you back to where the fight started.

Once Volmar dies and you continue the quest, you can exit the Pit of Heresy dungeon. Nothing else matters here to get Xenophage.
