Calus has crafted a maze of challenges in his lost vaults. Test your strength in the all-new six-player matchmade activity, the Menagerie, and meet his challenges head on to unlock your rewards. If you want to know how to grind up some Imperials, check out our guide for that here. Emperor Calus has invited you to Nessus, but you think it wise to drop in with Ikora before you go. First thing we're going to want to do is obtain the Chalice of Opulence.
You'll want to head over to Benedict 99-40 at the Traveler. He will give you The Invitation quest step that send you over to Ikora. She has some intelligence that indicates the Cabal barge has landed at Nessus. She'll also give you a gift of some higher grade armor and weapons that are quite useful if you haven't been playing much. You'll also get some upgraded gear over at the Eververse, so make sure to hit that before you leave! Here's a list of the steps for fully completing The Invitation Quest.
I've got a full guide to how to complete them all below this list. The Invitation: Emperor Calus has invited you to Nessus, but you think it wise to drop in with Ikora before you go. The Invitation: Ikora's intelligence indicates that a Cabal barge has just landed on the surface of Nessus. That lines up with Calus's promise that he sent a "gift" to Nessus for you. Cracked Chalice: Calus, via Werner 99-40, has given you a Chalice of Opulence, an artifact that he promises will bring you great power if it is restored. Defeat Cabal on Nessus to collect lost Chalice fragments. Mended Chalice: Prepare an adhesive to rebind the Chalice fragments. Defeat Vex on Nessus with melee damage without dying. The Invitation: As you finish the adhesive, you receive a transmission from Werner 99-40. Recover Imperials, a currency of the Cabal Empire, from Red Legion deserters in the Conflux Lost Sector on Nessus. The Invitation: Upgrade the Chalice by fusing it with the Imperials you recovered. The Invitation: Ghost receives another transmission from Werner 99-40—this time with a bounty note attached. The Invitation: Slot the rune you found in the treasure chest into the Chalice. The Invitation: Return to Werner 99-40 on the Imperial Barge on Nessus. The Invitation: Calus has invited you to enter his Menagerie on the Leviathan. There, he promises you'll be able to unleash the true potential of your Chalice of Opulence. You must loot the final chest at the end of the activity in order to progress this quest. The Invitation: Claim your reward from the Menagerie Triumph. The Invitation: Purchase an upgrade on the Chalice. The Invitation: Return to Werner 99-40 on the Imperial Barge on Nessus and open the chest that awaits you. Head on over to Nessus, the barge is near the Watcher's Grave landing zone. You will be then given the Cracked Chalice, and you will need to defeat some Cabal to gather Chalice fragments. I found some of them in The Cistern, near the public event in the Pools of Luminance. Gather up 10 of these, and you'll be off to needing to punch some Vex in the face with your melee ability. You can find Vex close to the barge at Watcher's Grave.
There's a little portal you can enter with some Vex nearby, head into there and you'll find quite a few. Now, you'll need to get some adhesive to mend the Chalice back together. To find that, you'll need to go to the Conflux Lost Sector that is on Nessus and in The Cistern. Check out our maps to Lost Sectors to find the exact location. Head on into the Conflux and defeat the main bad guy of the area. That will unlock the sector chest, and you will find the Imperials you require to complete the quest step.
You will now have 1,000 Imperials, you can use those to upgrade the Chalice and fuse it together. Unlock this rune slot to control the archetype of weapon or armor that drops from the final chest in the Menagerie. Now that you've unlocked that, you'll be given the Glorious Harvest bounty to earn a Legendary rune for your Chalice.
