Destiny: The Taken King Calcified Fragment Location Guide

You need to find one of the Fragments before you can start this quest, turn the first one in right away. It can bug if you get too many before starting.
Calcified Fragment Location 1
When you first arrive at the Dreadnaught you will be told to explore it. You will eventually come up to some disappearing bridges that you can see with your Ghost. Cross over the broken bridges to the other side and go all the way to the left. Use your Ghost to see more bridges you can cross. Follow that all the way to the right and inside the room you can find the Calcified Fragment.

Once you enter the hallway with the gate, you will have to crawl through a hole to get around it. Go through the second hole and go to the end of the hallway. You can find the Fragment at the end, under the broken pillar.

The next area is at the second set of hidden bridges. When you cross the bridge, take a right and you will end up in a room a bunch of broken pillars. The pillar near the green crystals has the Fragment on top of it, you can use it to see it at least.

One of the weapons you will have to disable is near a corridor with a bunch of statues. The weapon is across a fully formed bridge. There is a path to the right of the stairs that leads to more invisible bridges. Use you ghost on the right corner and follow it up to the right platform for another Fragment.

This one is near the large warp gate that hard the giant Taken Knight come out of it. If you go to the right edge at the pillars you should see the Fragment on the side of the pillar. Jump over to it, crouch and grab it.

This one is in the Hall Of Souls. There is a large doorway with green crystals and tendrils coming out of it. From there you should see a broken pillar near some steps and a doorway near the pillar, do not go in the doorway with the green crystals. Go to the pillar and take that door. Go right through the hole and follow that crystal you can scan. In that room you can find another hole near the crystal, take it. Go through until you find yellow crystal and on the metal part near there you can find the Fragment.

This one can be found in the Mausoleum, after you exit the Cabal ship. Head towards the bright light at the end of the area. If you go to the right platform and use your ghost, you can see the bridges that lead to that distant platform. Follow that path all the way to the end and you can find the Fragment in the corner.

This one is also in the Mausoleum, after you exit the Cabal Ship. When you are down near the statues, look at the ship to see an opening. You can go in there if you want, below that is where you find the Fragment. It is on one of the pillars jutting out underneath.

For this one go on a patrol in the Dreadnaught. If you got all the way to the back right corner you will find a door you can enter. Go in there and take a left and follow that through the to the hole. Take a left through the next hole and follow that all the way to the end, you should see black pillars and maybe a chest. That is the room you want to be in.

Calcified Fragment Location 15
This one is in the Mausoleum on the very furthest platform near the really bright, tall light source at the end of the room. It is inside the chest that reads “Scent is Key”. To open the “Scent is Key” box you have to solve a little riddle and prove your agility. Before jumping to the platform you need to get the “Scent”. There is a small cave on the same side as the far platform but back near all the enemies. It’s in the door directly at the bottom of the stairs, head inside and take the hole to the left.

Once in the cave you need to sit there for about 60 seconds – you’ll know you’re in the right place as your screen goes green and hazy. You’ll know you’ve waited long enough when you leave and you see Worm Scent on the left side of your screen. You need to get to the Scent is Key chest within the 60 seconds. Try to memorize the platform locations and be wary of the Blind enemies that appear.

You can get a Fragment by using the runes in the court of Oryx. It seems to be random from the chest, but we got it using a Stolen Rune on the second altar.
Calcified Fragment Location 17
This one can be found in the area where you originally come into the Dreadnaught. I’m not sure if you can get this one during the Story mission or not, I missed it if so. At the end of the room you will find a dead end hallway on the right, to the left of the closed door you can find it.

This one can be found in the area where you originally come into the Dreadnaught. I’m not sure if you can get this one during the Story mission or not, I missed it if so. If you look down to the right from the drop off point you can see the glimmer of the Fragment. Fly on down and pick it up.

These next few will be found during the Sunless Cell Strike. As soon as you enter, run down to the metal gate and you can see it through there. You can grab it at the gate, I couldn’t get it when I crouched.

This one is also in the Sunless Cell Strike. After you get the one near the gate, take the hallway to the next room. To the right you will see pillars and hanging cells (maybe coffins?). Go to the end and look up to the left and you will see this one near the ceiling, jet pack to it.

This one you need the Key of Ur to get, you can get it on a random drop in a Patrol Mission, I think. The chest is right below where you spawn in on patrol in a cave.

You need the key of Akka for this one, I found mine during the Court Of Oryx battles. This one is near the Court itself. You can find a cave system that has a poisonous floor, it is right before the floor gets deadly.

Calcified Fragment Location 27
This one is in the caves with the poison floor, near the Court of Oryx. In order to get this you will need to use an ultimate that gives you more defense. We used a Titan bubble to open it. There is apparently a named Wizard somewhere around that will give you a buff to make the floor not harm you, I couldn’t find it.

You find this one on the Shield Brother Strike. In the room right before the boss is where you find it. It is the really destroyed room. In the right corner, under a couple of fallen pillars you can find it.

  • We’re updating this as we go so please excuse any missing fragments. We do have enough to complete the quests, not entirely sure about the purpose of the rest of them. A lot are in the chests that require keys and drops from mobs so it’s just trial and error to find them 😀

    If you know of any we missed and would like to help out please include as much information as possible and if you have the means, a couple of screenies 😀

    • DamageDone

      As soon as you land on the dreadnaught in the first mission there is a fragment to the left of the platform on the slope of dirt beneath some ribbons. Take care though because it is easy to slide to your death.

  • rwxpro

    Just fyi, there should be 50 on the dreadnaught – on the map director it says x/50 similar to x/5 for golden chests

  • Amber Wycoff

    When you do the first story mission on the dreadnaught, when you go into the area where you first encounter the invisible bridges, to the right there is a platform with 3 waterfall looking things on it. You will need to use the bridge to get across and jump to the furthest platform connected by bridge. I was on my hunter so I used the boots of eao to get extra jumps then blade dancer supered my way over there.

  • Adrian Valentine-Williams

    Just to note the first shard is all the way to the left when you first land in. there is a doorway that is a dead end go in turn around and you should see it behind the column on the right

  • Big thanks for all the feedback guys. We’ve managed to find most of the ones you’ve helped describe 😀

  • Gooey Engineer

    Same Room as 23, pull out your ghost and youll see hidden platforms to a fragment under the bridge

  • iLLrunsDEEP

    Some of these aren’t very descriptive and the pictures are a little rough to match up. Not all of them but for instance #13 is rather hard to follow.

  • Grazel

    What would be useful is if you noted which fragment you get at each location so those of us with only some of them but may not recall which ones can compare to our grimoire cards to see which ones in the list we still need. At least all the ones I’ve found laying around so far have unlocked specific cards (not in sequence which is why I suspect at least some fragments are fixed location for a grimoire card)

  • Marcos Torres

    I found another in the breach. Say you are stepping out of the space shuttle and facing Saturn. Just walk a few steps ahead until you are at the end of the shuttle’s platform and it will be on the left side of the first broken pillar on your left.
