Examine the orb that contained HADES
This mission will start when you arrive at the Meridian known from the first game. After the initial conversation with Marad, arrive at a large sphere.
Climb up to the base of the Spire
Locate the first yellow elements and start climbing. While completing it, Aloy must jump backward several times - you do that by pressing the Circle (no need to tilt the left stick towards the target shelf).
At the top, use the Pullcaster to move the jib shown in the picture. This will allow you to jump to it and get closer to the central structure.
You must also use the Pullcaster to pull out the grid from the image above. This will reveal a new grappling point - jump towards it and press X as soon as the Grapple icon appears.
The final part of the climb will not surprise you with anything new. A cut-scene will play once you reach the top.
Talk to your friends
Return to where the companions are standing. Avad will appear and you will receive part of Champion's Spear.
You will get an optional mission objective to talk to the people gathered in the area. You can talk to:
- Nasadi and Itamen
- Uthid and Vanasha
When talking to Avad, you can additionally choose a type of reaction from Aloy that determines her overall attitude towards the man. This is not an important choice that can affect the entire game. Your decision can only change the further course of the conversation and possible subsequent encounters with this character.
The usual dialogue options will also appear in the conversations. You can optionally choose to bring up additional topics or you can end the conversation right away.
Modify your spear at a Workbench
There is a workshop nearby. After interacting with the table, confirm upgrading the spear. Its new variant will be compatible with the special Resonator Blast attack, which you can unlock later in the game by spending a skill point.
Return to Marad and Varl
After you've taken care of all the business in the area and optionally explored all the unique places, you can talk to Marad and Varl. During the conversation, confirm that you want to set out on the journey - the dialogue option on the right.
