Destiny 2: Why the Ahamkara will return!

Danger is a natural habitat for Ghosts and their Guardians. If you need some motivation, I could tell you about the time Lord Shaxx and I hunted an Ahamkara!

This video contains minor spoilers, however these spoilers are based upon what we have already seen in the beta, officially released Destiny 2 gameplay and the grimoire cards, NOT leaks, like the leaked audio clips or glitches.

With that being said, I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny 2 Lore episode and this is myelin games and this is why I think the Ahamkara will make an appearance in Destiny 2.

Firstly, a big thank you to patreon Bigmanwiththebigmac for getting the introduction footage and telling me about the ahamkara dialogue in the beta.

Lets begin, Luke Smith recently answered questions from Twitter which was uploaded to WIRED. He made it very clear that previous installations of Destiny hinted at future story arcs, for example he acknowledged how the mission Outbound Signal in the Taken King hinted at the Cabal in Destiny 2. He also said that Destiny 2 will provide clues for the involvement of the Vex in the future.

IN my opinion, the same line of thinking was applied to the grimoire cards released with Age of Triumph. Many of the Age of Triumph grimoire cards foreshadowed the events in Destiny 2 and I believe that during Age of Triumph Bungie released a clue relating to the Ahmakara. Lets start with some examples first of Age of Triumph grimoire cards that have predicted Destiny 2 story arcs, then we will move onto the Ahamkara.

The grimoire card Ghost Fragment: Cayde-6 introduced in Age of Triumph  re-introduced the moon, IO and mentioned it was the last place the Traveler touched. Obviously, in Destiny 2 IO is a playable space and Bungie has revealed that IO has great significance because it was the last place the Traveler influenced prior to the Collapse. The introduction of this card foreshadowed IO in Destiny 2.

Ghost Fragment: Eris Morn was also introduced in Age of Triumph and also introduced the Character Asher Mir, who recently was revealed in a youtube video by IGN’s Fireteam Chat. In addition, the card  explains that Eris Morn would levve the Tower. The introduction of this card foreshadowed Eris Morn leaving the Tower and the introduction of the character Asher Mir in Destiny 2.

Ghost Fragment: Fallen 6 from the Age of Triumph, is an extremely interesting card and supports that Bungie is dropping some massive clues in the Grimoire cards. This card was changed recently to include the character of Sloane. Initially, this card just ended with

I believe your wisdom will guide us through the trials ahead.

However, Bungie updated the grimoire card with,

I believe your wisdom will guide us through the trials ahead.

– Sloane

Sloane was then confirmed in Destiny 2 in the Instagram trailer as the subtitles said her name when she was speaking. The fact that Bungie modified this card to include Sloane’s name is proof that Bungie is leaving hints in the grimoire cards from Age of Triumph. In addition, Ghost Fragment: Fallen 6 describes how the Fallen have burnt their banners and armour, and now we see a united Fallen house on both Earth and Nessus. Once again, this grimoire card has foreshadowed the events in Destiny 2.

There are also some leaked audio lines that further reinforce that the grimoire cards from age of triumph will be revealed in Destiny 2, however I am not going to mention that here because I believe it is a massive spoiler.

So, why then do I think the Ahamkara will make an appearance in Destiny 2… Well firstly, in the PC beta, they added a new audio line where Zavala says that he has hunted the Ahamkara with Shaxx! Have a listen.

Secondly, in Age of Triumph they introduced a very odd item, Knuckles Of Eao. The in-game description reads,

“Boons I grant you, oh bearer mine, but debts must be paid in time.”

When you use this consumable you get double drops in the raid, and the text that is shown on screen when the consumable is activated reads,

“[insert gamertag] has had their wish granted.”

This is highly suggestive that by using the Knuckles of Eao you just made a bargain with the Ahamkara, Ahamkara that were supposably hunted to extinction because of their abilities to grant wishes, to make bargains, as Ghost fragment: legends 3 reads,

“The Great Ahamkara Hunt. After great deliberation it was determined that the Ahamkara be made extinct… The call had to be silenced. So the Great Hunt did its work.”

Considering, the added a dialogue line involving the Ahamkara in the Inverted strike mission and the added Knuckles of Eao during age of triumph, and the Knuckles of Eao say “debts must be paid in time” AND considering the precedent that the age of triumph grimoire cards have set in predicted Destiny 2 story arcs, I am very confident that the Ahamkara will appear in Destiny 2.

If you would like to support this video, please leave a like and leave the word, EAO, to represent the Ahamkara’s return and that just remember guardians, all debts must be paid in time! As usual it has been a pleasure, this is myelin games. Peace.
