One of the many collectibles found within Destiny: The Taken King are calcified fragments. These are definitely required to appease Eris Morn’s greedy butt for a special exotic. So if you want the Touch of Malice or you just plain ol’ love to collect, keep your eyes peeled for a shiny blue beacon that you can nab in these locations.
I (1) – Located in the Mausoleum, where the Chest of Maggots is (past the secret pathway you’ll need Ghost to illuminate). Look upon that platform for the fragment.
II (2) – Located in the Mausoleum within the Dreadnaught, where there is a large statue upon a circular platform. You’ll go through the door past the statue, where the calcified remains will be next to a weird alien container.
III (3) – Located in the Mausoleum within the Dreadnaught, it’ll be through the door above. Continue through there. You’ll reach a seemingly dead-end area, however, you just need to jump to the ledge within there.
IV (4) – Past the Hull Breach, through the Cabal ship that you need to go through to get to the Mausoleum. The fragment will be located on top of a fallen pillar on the path towards the Mausoleum.
V (5) – This one is also found within the path towards the Mausoleum, within one of the debris piles.
VI (6) – Within the Hull Breach, before going through the Cabal ship to make your way to the Mausoleum, go right until the platform stops and you can go below where you can go through a doorway. Follow the path and keep left where you will reach a large room. The fragment is in the back of this room.
VII (7) – Right when you spawn into the Hull Breach, go left and jump below where you will see a door. Go past the chest and approach the green light to find a fragment hidden next to it.
VIII (8) – In the Hull Breach, climb up the busted wall.
IX (9) – Right when you spawn into the Hull Breach, run forward and look next to one of the fallen pillars.
X (10) – Within the Hall of Souls in the back, left-hand side of the Court of Oryx, you’ll need to enter through the miss-able door above and follow the path through the wall.
XI (11) – Within the Court of Oryx, it can be found where the Chest of Yuul is located, past invisible platforms you need Ghost to highlight for you.
XII (12) – Head right past the Court of Oryx until you reach the above room. Climb those pillar-y platforms to reach a fragment up there.
XIII (13) – Head right while looking upon the Court of Oryx’ altar/platform, even if it means getting damage from the mist. You’ll find a platform to jump on which will have the fragment on it.
XIV (14) – Make your way through the Trenchway and you’ll see the fragment past the larva and thrall at the end of a long hall next to the debris and fallen pillars above.
XV (15) – When you reach the tooth gate within the Trenchway, head directly in front of it (up the wall of debris) and there will be a fragment hiding there.
XVI (16) – In the area where you first spawn into the Dreadnaught (the Trenchway, and you’ll have the beautiful space scene behind you), head below the creepy tentacles to find a fragment on the platform.
XVII (17) – In the area where you first spawn into the Dreadnaught (the Trenchway, and you’ll have the beautiful space scene behind you), head all the way to the left, past the door you would normally go through, and head through the second one. The fragment is in that room.
XVIII (18) – During the Regicide mission, approach the door as seen above and head to the left before going through it. The fragment will be on up against the wall near the floor to the left.
XIX (19) – Right after passing the invisible platforms in the first Dreadnaught mission, rather than continuing through the next objective marker, you’re going to face right and jump the invisible platform there. There will be a path on that next platform leading to the fragment.
XX (20) – Right before passing the invisible platforms in the first Dreadnaught mission within the Trenchway, keep going to the right of them. Take out your ghost, and you’ll see a second, long set of invisible platforms reaching a high up fragment location.
XXI (21) – Within the Founts, at the end of the long hall shown above, the calcified fragment will be behind the gate on the floor.
XXII (22) – If you start right from the last fragment within the Founts above, you can then proceed to the door to your left and enter the next room. Once there, climb up the broken pillars and platforms to jump where the calcified fragment is (top right of above picture).
XXIII (23) – Following the last fragment, continue down the hallway as you normally would, where you will reach a large room with a big hole in the middle of the floor. Jump down there. Continue within the hole and head right when you can. The fragment will be at the end of this room, behind debris.
XXIV (24) – Right when you walk into the Asylum, head left where you can see a slope with a calcified fragment on top of it.
XXV (25) – Continuing from the last one, return to the normal Asylum stairs from the slope. Go down the stairs now, keeping your eye over the edge with Ghost out to reveal an invisible platform below you. Follow the sets of invisible platforms beneath the stairwell now to reach the calcified fragment.
XXVI (26) – During the Sunless Cell Strike, follow the path as you would within the Asylum (past the altar-ish area where bosses and enemies can spawn), except you’re going to want to jump up on a ledge on the wall with a fragment atop it.
XXVII (27) – During the Regicide mission, when you’re in the room shown above, turn around. The fragment will be beneath a fallen, blank tomb thing.
XXVIII (28) – In the Shield Brothers strike, after you beat the Goliath tank, continue until you reach a Hive room. Head to your right and the fragment will be within some rubble and debris.
XXIX (29) – In King’s Fall, right before the teleporter up to the first encounter, look back at the pillar that blocks your view of the teleporter to reach the fragment atop it.
XXX (30) – Head up the teleporter within King’s Fall for the “Prove Your Worth” encounter, and you’ll find a fragment next to the pillar on your right.
XXXI (31) – Within Golgoroth’s cellar, take a left at the first intersection and then another left to reach a dead end area. Just jump up on the wall and there’s a fragment atop there.
XXXII (32) – After Golgoroth, continue as you would. When you reach the second room, take a left. There will be a ledge to your right that you can jump upon for a fragment.
XXXIII (33) – In the King’s Fall raid, where the platforms with spikes are awaiting you, jump to the lowest platform and head to the other end of it (past the pumping blade) where the fragment will be up against a corner.
XXXIV (34) – This will be found within the Chest of Scent.
XXXV (35) – You need to open the Cursed Chest within the Hall of Souls.
XXXVI (36) – Located within a chest that will spawn after a Taken invasion event in the Founts. You need a fully charged Agonarch rune to trigger it.
XXXVII (37) – Found within the Skyburners’ Chest.
XXXVIII (38) – Obtained from one of the secret chests in the Dreadnaught.
XXXIX (39) – Within the Patrol Dreadnaught, in the Court of Oryx, you need to have a Stolen Rune and defeat three Court of Oryx Tier 1 events. This will charge it and allow you to summon the Tier 2 boss within the Court of Oryx. The fragment is a possible drop after defeating this boss.
XL (40) – This one is a possible drop from the Taken event where you need to kill Bracus Horu’usk, Cra’adug, and Mengoor.
XLI (41) – Within the Patrol Dreadnaught, in the Court of Oryx, you need to have a Stolen Rune and defeat three Court of Oryx Tier 1 events. This will charge it and allow you to summon the Tier 2 boss within the Court of Oryx. The fragment is a possible drop after defeating this boss.
XLII (42) – This one is a possible drop from the Taken event where you need to kill Krughor and Vorlog.
XLVI (46) – Complete the Nightfall strike and you’ll be rewarded a calcified fragment.
XLVII (47) – Within the Patrol Dreadnaught, in the Court of Oryx, you need to charge up an Antiquated Rune, which you can then use to summon Thalnok, Fanatic of Crota (Tier 3 boss). Defeating Kagoor possibly gives you a fragment.
XLIX (49) – Within the Patrol Dreadnaught, in the Court of Oryx, you need to charge up an Antiquated Rune, which you can then use to summon Kagoor (Tier 3 boss). Defeating Kagoor possibly gives you a fragment.
L (50) – This is obtained by completing a quest given within the Court of Oryx, ‘Challenge the Court: Stolen Rune.’ It will randomly appear after completing some events in the arena area of the Court of Oryx.
