How to get The First Knife

The First Knife is an Exotic Ship unlocked by completing the Paracausal Geometries Triumph. Once the entire Alone in the Dark questline has been completed, Guardians can unlock Paranormal Activities, which appear on the Pale Heart’s map.

In areas highlighted with the Paranormal Activity marker, you’ll find Light (blue) and Dark (red) cubes. Shoot the Light cubes with Light damage and the Dark cubes with Dark damage. Complete all 12 Paranormal Activities to earn the Paracausal Geometries Triumph and earn The First Knife.

How to get Victorious Oddment and Wander On

The Victorious Oddment Emblem is awarded to players who have completed all The Final Shape Campaign Missions on Legendary Difficulty. It doesn’t matter which order you do them in as long as they’re all complete.

The Wander On Emblem is a reward for completing The Final Shape Campaign, including the 12-player Excision Activity. Talk to Ghost after you’ve dealt with The Witness to pick it up.

How to get Reaching Within

The method for obtaining the Reaching Within Shader is currently unknown, though it’s more than likely awarded as a Reputation reward from Ghost. Currently, Ghost is displaying Scintilliant Trajectory as a reward, with many believing that this should instead be Reaching Within. We’ll have to wait and see.

How to get First Ascent gear

Rather than being world or Activity drops, the First Ascent set is awarded from various Micah-10 Lost Ghost Quests. If you haven’t met Micah yet, she’s available to talk to you via Micah’s Conduit in the Pale Heart.

Obtaining one piece of armor will unlock its class variants automatically, so there’s no need to grab these on each of your characters. Here are the Quest names for every piece of The Final Shape’s First Ascent set:

  • First Ascent Casque/Helmet/Hood — The Visitation
  • First Ascent Grips/Gauntlets/Gloves — The Shadows
  • First Ascent Vest/Plate/Robes — The Veiled
  • First Ascent Strides/Greaves/Boots — The Return
  • First Ascent Cloak/Mark/Bond — The Ascendant

How to get The Final Shape weapons

Aside from The Call and No Hesitation, which are acquired through The Final Shape’s Campaign, most Legendary The Final Shape weapons are rewards for completing post-Campaign Quests from Micah-10. This includes the repeatable Alone in the Dark Mission, which unlocks a new Cyst with each attempt.

Below is every base The Final Shape weapon and the mission they’re awarded from:

  • Pro Memoria — Convalescence: Underbrush
  • False Idols — Alone in the Dark (Cyst #4)
  • No Hesitation — The Final Shape Campaign
  • Bold Endings — Alone in the Dark (Cyst #2)
  • Axial Lacuna — Alone in the Dark (Cyst #3)
  • Someday — Convalescence: Rootbound
  • The Call — The Final Shape Campaign
  • Embraced Identity — Convalescence: Greenery
  • Still Hunt — Wild Card
  • Microcosm — Convalescence: Budding

How to get Khvostov 7G-02 and Khvostov 7G-0X

As a blast from the past, both the Legendary and Exotic versions of Khvostov are available through a very long set of secrets. You can find our guide on how to obtain both Khvostovs in The Final Shape here.

If you’ve managed to complete the Pale Heart Pathfinder Badge, I salute you. Don’t stop there, though! Collecting the rest of The Final Shape Triumphs will earn you the rather impressive Transcendent Title for your hard work.
