Apparently the Artifacts of Chaos, Void, and Growth, are not on here. It makes no sense since the titan terminals are on the map. I am not sure if this is a oversight or what, but to provide everything but the artifacts is just frustration. We have it with a cluster so we will be able to get the artifacts we need, but the dev or devs need to fix this.

Someone asked this earlier and there never was a response, Is there a location for the Chaos, Void, and Growth artifacts on this map to allow doing the titan boss's?
