Mercury Public Event: Vex Crossroads

While at first intimidating due to its size, the three steps required to completed a reasonably simple and quick, and obviously goes much faster with a compliment of other players joining you.

Phase one: Seize keys from Gatekeepers to shut down the warp gates

The sole public event on Mercury looks like it is two events occurring at the same time, but it's actually showing the first phase takes place across two areas at once.This first phase has you shut down four warp gates, two at either end of the patrol space. Start at one end, and find the Gatekeeper, a named enemy called 'Keeper of Ages Present'.Once it's downed, it'll drop orbs. Pick up one of these orbs, and take it to one of the two gates on the upper ledges on the outside of the raised area to dunk it. If the orbs disappear, more should spawn up the steps near the launcher.Perform this for both gates on both sides, making for a total of four gates.

Phase two: Travel to the island to shut down its warp gate

On both outer edges of Mercury are islands, which one of the launch pads near the above gates will take you to. When you land, it's a similar process as before - find the Gatekeeper, destroy it for orbs, and drop them into the central gate.

You then take the launcher back, go to the far other side, and repeat at the second island. It should be noted it's this phase that has the Heroic requirement, which we'll discuss in more detail toward the end of this page.

Phase three: Defeat the Gate Lord

With the second island done, head back via the launcher and go to the central-most- area, where a towering Vex - the Gate Lord - will be waiting.This is a simple case of putting as much damage in as possible. With a handful of you it won't take long at all, and once it's downed, the event is over, giving you two treasure chests to choose from.

Turning Vex Crossroads Heroic

The Heroic activation comes during one very specific part of the event.When you travel to the first island as part of the second phase, you'll destroy a Gatekeeper and drop an orb in the center, before taking the launcher back to the main Mercury setting.However, when you drop the orb and before you take the launcher, a floating diamond will appear on the outer edge of the island. You must destroy this as soon as possible to trigger a platform.Leap up onto it, and two diamonds appear. Destroy these, and another platform and another set of diamonds will appear.Destroy these, and a final platform will take you to the top of the island. Stand in the middle of the plate and the Heroic version of the event will activate.

 

Hope this helps you all guys. ill be posting more heroic Walkthrough's in time.
