DEAD ORBIT

A faction is a group that Guardians can join and earn reputation with. Most factions are based within the Last City at the Tower. Completing an activity for a faction allows Guardians to increase their rank with them and earn rewards.

There are three factions that form the City’s government, the Consensus, and seek champions among the Guardians to represent them in the Crucible. Guardians may pledge themselves to a faction for a fee of 2500 Glimmer, in doing so they can earn faction-specific rewards, such as Armor, Weapons, Emblems, Shaders and Ships. Guardians are permitted to change their allegiance to a faction, but can only do so once per week, and must pay the fee each time. When a player reaches Reputation level 25 within their faction, they’ll unlock a faction quest that rewards an Exotic Class Item that increases reputation gains with that faction. This Exotic Class item has the ability to be equipped with one other Exotic piece of armor.

  • Mote of Light (x5) [Yields 100 Rep]
  • Weapon Parts (x25) [Yields 75 Rep]
  • Armor Materials (x25) [Yields 50 Rep]
  • Special Ammo Synthesis (x4) [Yields 25 Rep]
  • Heavy Ammo Synthesis (x1) [Yields 25 Rep]

The following looks at Dead Orbit.

Dead Orbit

Dead Orbit’s theology has developed from mere fatalism into an obsession with worlds beyond Earth. Now their focus is on the building of a starfaring fleet, cobbled together from the ashes of our past and the spoils of war.

Dead Orbit wants to abandon The City. Members of Dead Orbit intend to escape the dying Earth before The Darkness returns, as they’ve given up onThe Traveler and put little faith in The City’s ability to hold out against a major attack. While they recognize that such a move could be very costly in terms of lives, they see no other alternative for survival, and instead put their faith in finding enough Golden Age technology in vaults and abandoned shipyards to allow them to escape and find a new homeworld. They are even willing to cross New Monarchy’s legal authority to achieve this end, but they also recognize they will need to bring Guardians to their cause in order to fight against any future threats. In addition, while walking around the Tower, occasionally Arach Jalaal will say, “we need this for our fleet.”

Among Guardians, Dead Orbit’s technicians have a reputation for producing finely-tuned weapons. Dead Orbit shadersare obtained through packages when ranking up (after rank 3).

Arach Jalaal

Jalaal, an Awoken male, is a man driven by the ghost of a dead future. Critics accuse Dead Orbit of nihilistic fatalism – and Jalaal would be the first to agree that Earth is lost, the City a fatal trap.

The Arachs have no time for sentiment. Only an alien miracle prevented human extinction during the Collapse. Jalaal dreams of a diaspora to come – humanity ascendant, scattered across the stars, too far-flung for any single threat to reach.

Jalaal’s utilitarian practicality drives him to bend laws and break rules in the name of Dead Orbit’s great project. When the ultimate goal is human survival, any sacrifice can be justified.*
