Full Corsairs Down Guide

First and foremost I want to say the rewards for this are non powerful, though I did received Dreaming City weapons and gear occasionally as rewards.

Update: Slight wrench in the idea that this leads to something else, I got another Corsair Down bounty today and it was one that I have already done. I'm now thinking its just something like the Chests that were spread across the Dreadnought.

- Kill random enemies in The Dreaming City until one drops the Corsair Down mission Item

- Read the description of the item to find the location of the Corsair. (Example: Something about a spine and mist)

- Find the location on the map that fits the items description. There are 6 of these mission in total and they drop in no specific order.

- When in the desired area equip a sniper and look around the area while ADS. When you are close enough and looking towards the body a mission icon will appear.

- Inspect the body and kill the enemies that spawn to obtain the Corsairs Badge.

- Return the badge to a Corsair Camp (The locations with the pulsing towers)

- Rinse and Repeat

Once you do this all 6 times you will unlock a bounty called Vengeance, Kill the Corsairsbane. For me he spawned in The Bay Lost Sector in the Divalian Mist, but I feel like he can spawn in any location you found a Corsair body...not entirely sure yet. I am hoping this is just the first part to a longer quest but as of Sunday night there were no more steps.

As I stated at the start it is a non powerful reward, I received multiple pieces for the Armor Set throughout the mission though.

They spawn in random places. If you don't want to search the whole place, just run far enough back that you're in Rheasilva again, then return to Harbinger's Seclude, and do it until the body spawns in the room with the first group of adds.

level 2

It's in front of a room nearby Huginn and Muninn

Sniper rifle worked for me. Had the Bay, killed off enemies, sought high ground began scope scanning the area, when I found nothing, I moved further in, sought high ground scope scanned and found the Corsair.

This is definitely the Wish-Ender quest.

I'm pretty sure Wish-Ender is from the raid but I could see this as being part of the quest for it.

Data mining has shown that Thousand Voices is the raid weapon.

I don't know I don't look into datamining. The ongoing theory I heard was that Wish-Ender came from the raid.

Oh you have to do all 6 bodies? I thought it was just one random one.

It was time gated to drop one per day, at this point they are all available so after you finish one you can immediately move onto the next one.

But each is a random drop right? It's not going to give me the next step automatically like a quest right?

Nope each one is a random drop.
