Izanagi’s Burden is the result of the Mysterious box quest that started when Black Armory first launched. With the release of the final forge, it is now possible to get it. So, let’s go over the steps. The first step is to grab the Mysterious Box from the cave nearby the Volundr Forge in the EDZ. The box needs 4 keys, one from each forge. The first 3 keys are pretty easy to get.
The Volundr, Gofannon and Izanami keys are all obtained by maximizing the temper on the forge during a forge run. In order to do get maximum temper during a forge, you need to shoot 2 shield robot guard… things that spawn right as the 2nd round of a forge starts. The locations of the shields are being shown on the screen now, all you need to do is shoot both of them, but you don’t get very long to kill them because they’ll despawn about 15-20 seconds after first spawning in.
Here are the rest of the locations. To actually get the key, you’ll open a Black Armory crate near the forge itself at the very end of a completed forge run. The final key is for Bergusia forge and has a couple of steps involved. You’ll need to talk to Ada, who will give you a Black Armory Key Mold and tell you to go to the Leviathan underbelly to kill the watcher robots for their lenses. You need 24 lenses and while it says you need to “kill all of the watchers,” you can just keep resetting the same area to farm. Here’s a quick guide on how to get into the underbelly in case you haven’t done the Leviathan. When you first load in, go to the end of the bridge and go under it instead of going up.
In a room down here will be 6 levers. You need to pull them in this order: 1-5-3-2-4-6. If you do it fast enough and correctly, a door upstairs will open. Go up the ramps and instead of going into the launchers, go one ramp higher and head into the water via the pipes. Go all the way to the end, then activate the fan at the end of the hall by going to the control panel room. Take the fan up, run down the path and you’ll get to the Engine room with 4 watchers. Only kill 3 of them, kill the adds that spawn, kill the 4th watcher, go back to where you came in and reset.
Repeat until done. The next step involves collecting Glittering Amethyst from activities in the game, you need 200 total. Strike completions give 20, as do heroic public event completions, so basically you’ll need 10 heroic public event completions, that’s probably gonna be the easiest way, but it’s up to you. After you get the 200 amethyst, you’ll need to run a Bergusia Forge at maximum temper. This final forge is recommended 650 light, so be ready for that. Here are the locations of the shield bots you need to kill in order to get maximum temper. After doing that, you can crack open your mysterious box and then head to Ada. You’ll also get a thing called a mysterious datapad, we’ll cover that another time. Ada will tell you that she needs an Obsidian Crystal for the next part. A crystal only comes from a RARE black armory bounty. These bounties have a small chance to “spawn” whenever you do daily black armory bounties, it is not a guarantee, although you have a very small chance to get a rare bounty from just doing forge completions as well.
These rare bounties last for 2 weeks and give a powerful reward, but typically require much greater effort to complete. Complete your bounty to move on to the next steps, which are pretty self-explanatory. The next 3 steps just involve running some activities. The first thing you’ll do is run a Shattered Throne to the end, nothing special. Then, you’ll run a special version of The Pyramidion at power level 640 with solar singe, heavyweight, and extinguish, so if you die, you go back to the beginning. It also locks your loadout. You may want to bring friends for that. After that, you’ll have one more mission in the EDZ to go do, bringing friends also encouraged. When you’re done with that mission, you’ll head back to Ada and you will grab your new sniper. As I said earlier, we’ll cover the mysterious datapad another time. Thanks for watching, I’ll see you next time..
