How to unlock new lure as part of the Halloween event.
The Book of the Forgotten is new lore introduced in Destiny 2’s Festival of the Lost 2021.
This must be contracted using two new types of items – Spectral Pages and Manifested Pages, which are earned from completing the new seasonal activity.

How to unlock the Book of the Forgotten and unlock new entries in Destiny 2
The Book of the Forgotten is an item present exclusively during Festival of the Lost 2021. With it, you’re able to unlock a total of 27 lore entries told by Glint.
In order to unlock the Book of the Forgotten, you must complete Eva Levante’s quest, obtained in the Tower. After you have completed all seven steps, you’ll be free to use this whenever. If you’re wondering about the process, the same involves both new items: Spectral and Manifested Pages.
How to get Spectral Pages in Destiny 2
To earn Spectral Pages, which are the way to create Manifested Pages, you must complete activities across the game.
These are the following:
- Strikes, Crucible, Gambit
- Public Events
- Expunge missions from Season of the Splicer
- Pinnacle rewards
Depending on your Power Level, some activities will go faster than others.
In our experience, Crucible matches provided a good balance – we were able to obtain around 300 Candy without much effort, as well as around 3 Spectral Pages each time. Plus, modes like Control can end fast if either team reaches max score well before the timer runs out, which helps to optimise things.
Season of the Lost is here, with new Exotics such as the Ager’s Scepter and the long-awaited arrival of crossplay. New activities include the Wayfinders Voyage, the Astral Alignment activity and finding Atlas Skew, Trivial Mystery, Enigmatic Mystery, Ascendant Mystery, Data Cache, Parallax Trajectory and Ascendant Anchor locations. Elsewhere, we’ve seen new Nightfall weapons such as the Uzume RR4, Plug One.1 and Hung Jury SR4. Other recent new features include transmog and materials Synthstrand, Synthcord and Synthweave, the Splicer Gauntlet and Decrypted Data used to upgrade it.
How to get Manifested Pages in Destiny 2
Manifested Pages are used to create new lore items in the Book of the Forgotten. You can only get Manifested Pages by defeating Headless Ones in the new Haunted Lost Sectors activity.
These enemies have to be summoned by staying on ritual sites that spawn randomly during the activity for a couple seconds. Then, a fight will take place.
For each Headless One you and your squadmates manage to take down, a Spectral Page will be converted into a Manifested Page. Manifested Pages are then used in the Book of the Forgotten to unlock story snippets.
The cost varies from two, to five and up to nine pages per entry, so it will take you a while to get there.
We recommend to have a good chunk of Spectral Pages before heading over to the Haunted Lost Sector, as to optimise your time.
It’s worth noting that, aside from unlocking bits of Glint’s story, turning Spectral Pages into Manifested pages increases weapon drops significantly. This means more chances of getting new rolls of the Jurassic Green pulse rifle and both the Braytech Werewolf and Horror Story auto rifles.
Regardless of your method of choice, make sure to grab bounties from Eva Levante before you jump into any activity!
