Festival of the Lost is the Halloween event in Destiny 2 and a Spectral Pages bug has ruined some of the fun. Players are reporting that they are unable to complete the Gone but Not Forgotten quest that starts the Festival of the Lost event because they can’t convert their Spectral Pages to Manifest Pages.
Though there are a few proposed fixes to this Spectral Pages error, Bungie has suggested that completing a strike can fix this issue. As strange as this sounds, in the This Week at Bungie blog post, this was included in one of Bungie’s workarounds to the converting Spectral Pages bug while they work on fixing it.
Here are the other Spectral Pages error fixes that Bungie has offered:
- Obtain the Gone but Not Forgotten quest from Eva Levante in the Tower.
- Make sure you are wearing the Masquerader’s Helm with a Festival Mask.
- Have at least three free spaces in their character’s inventory.
- Have Spectral Pages in their inventory prior to entering the Haunted Sectors playlist.
As mentioned previously, Bungie then offered a few more solutions if none of the above workarounds fixes your Spectral Pages issue. The four last workarounds offered are to clear your console or PC game cache, obtain more Spectral Pages (as if playing more will solve your problem), complete a Haunted Lost Sector, and complete a strike.
The last one—complete a strike—is such an odd workaround, one we’ve never heard before. It’s as if Bungie is saying “play more of our game” instead of taking ownership and fixing the issue as soon as possible. Their lucky we’re completing strikes instead of striking the Festival of the Lost event considering the main currency of it is broken.
Destiny 2 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia.
