Destiny Calcified Fragment 8 ( VIII ) location

What are Calcified Fragments?

Calcified fragments are collectable items in Destiny Taken King. They are very similar to the collectable dead ghost from Vanilla Destiny. There are 50 Calcified Fragments in total to be collected in The Taken King. Collecting Calcified Fragments is part of a questline from Eris Morn and collecting your first fragment will activate this quest. The end of the quest requires you to collect 45 of the 50 Calcified fragments as well as completing other activates in order to obtain an Exotic Weapon called the Touch of Malice. The Touch of Malice is an Exotic Scout Rifle, quite unique to The Taken King expansion and definitely worth obtaining.

Each Calcified fragment has its own number and name and is tied to its respective Book of Sorrow. The book of sorrow is just lore pertaining to that particular Calcified fragment. Each Calcified Fragment is also worth a certain amount of Grimoire points ranging from 5 to 15.
Obtaining all 50 Calcified fragments is also one of the achievements for Year 2 Moments of Triumph in Destiny and will also unlock the Beltane Armor Shader.

Where are the Calcified fragments located?

Most of the Calcified fragments are located in the Dreadnaught. While some of the Calcified Fragments can be located while walking around on patrol, others require completing certain events or quests on the Dreadnaught.

Where is Calcified Fragment VIII (8) located?

Ok, so how to find Calcified fragment number eight on the Dreadnaught? Quite simply all you have to do for this one is head to the Dreadnaught on patrol. Calcified Fragment 8 – Leviathan is located in the near the Hull Breach as soon as you spawn on the Dreadnaught, if you have no idea where that is, that’s ok I’ll explain.

Calcified Fragment 8 is extremely easy to get and is very close to where you spawn on the Hull Breach, but will require you to put your jumping skills to the test. Even then this isn’t a particularly hard jumping puzzle and most people should be able to get the fragment with relative ease using ANY class.

Once you land on the Dreadnaught in Patrol, look immediately to your right and you will see debris that looks like broken platforms or stairs.

Your goal is to get to the topmost platform.

My only tip for getting there is to try and just jump to one platform at a time for maximum ease and effort. Also it is slight easier if you jump from platform to platform using the edges rather than from the middle, at least it was for me.

One other thing you need to worry about is not overshooting the jump from platform to platform, but even then the worst that can happen is you fall off and would have to start over again. 

Once you get to the topmost platform, Calcified Fragment 8 will be located at the bottom right corner, towards the end of the platform closer to the wall

That’s it, you’ve found Calcified #8. This Fragment is probably one of the easiest fragments you will find on the Dreadnaught.

If you do not see the fragment, either you are in the wrong area OR you have already gotten the Fragment with the character you are currently using. One way to check if you got the Fragment with your current character is by using Destiny Tracker.

If you were not able to follow the instructions above or for some reason got lost along the way, I have included a video below showing you exactly how to get to Calcified Fragment #8 starting from the Hullbreach/Patrol on the Dreadnaught.

I am still working on collecting all 50 fragments for one of my characters before Rise of Iron is released in order to try and complete the Year 2 Moments for Triumph achievement. I will post articles for the other Calcified Fragment locations as I progress through collecting them myself.
