Spoils of conquest – Destiny 2
Destiny 2 Spoils of Conquest is a new item that Bungie introduced in the game’s Beyond Light expansion. Getting a bunch of them will allow you to pick up old Destiny 2 Exotics from previous expansions that you may have missed out on if you were taking a break, or simply found one of their quests too difficult
Spoils of Conquest
Spoils of Conquest are a currency type introduced in Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion. These tokens can be used to purchase Deep Stone Crypt gear, Vault of Glass gear, and older raid Exotics. Those looking to complete their collection will need hundreds of these Spoils if they wish to obtain every Raid Exotic.Fortunately, earning Spoils of Conquest is rather straightforward. You’ll need to find a group to raid with, but the most effective Spoils of Conquest farms are quite easy to do. Let’s delve into how you can obtain this resource, potential farms you can try, and ways to earn Spoils of Conquest by yourself.Spoils of Conquest only drop from raids. Every raid in Destiny 2 provides this resource, but the Deep Stone Crypt is arguably the best means of obtaining it.
It proves to be a nifty addition, too, as some Exotic quests ask you to visit certain locations and achieve various things. That’s all well and good, but lots of Destiny 2’s locations have been vaulted, so you can imagine the kind of roadblocks you’d come across if you tried to do any one of these quests right now. We’re looking at you, Izanagi’s Burden. Bungie has also done the same with Destiny 2’s Pinnacle Weapons, which typically involve beating hard quests to get.
It’s worth noting, though, that you’ll also need an Exotic Cipher alongside other resources to pick up Exotics, but those have been in the game for a while, so you should be fine. The new materials are, however, Spoils of Conquest. So, on that note, here’s where to find Destiny 2’s Spoils of Conquest.
Farming spoils of conquest
The only means of farming Spoils of Conquest is to clear the Vault of Glass raid multiple times. After you’ve completed an encounter in that raid, completing the same encounter again on the same character will grant five Spoils of Conquest instead of an item. There’s no limit to how many Spoils you can obtain this way
Vault of Glass’ fourth encounter, Templar, makes for an excellent Spoils farm. This encounter can be completed in as little as a minute if your team is outputting enough damage. Break the first set of Oracles, have the Aegis user break the Templar’s shield and block its teleports, then have the remaining five players use double Special weapons (most prefer slug Shotguns) to nuke the Templar’s health bar. If you aren’t familiar with this encounter, we cover it in our Vault of Glass raid guide.Once challenges become available for Vault of Glass, Templar’s Out of its Way challenge is absurdly easy. You can’t let Templar teleport to complete the challenge, something your team should be doing for the one-phase strategy anyhow. Whenever this challenge is active, farm the Templar encounter to double your Spoils of Conquest gains.
Raid Exotic weapons from the Monument to Lost Light in Destiny 2 can be purchased using Spoils of Conquest. For a weapon like Anarchy, players will need 240 Spoils of Conquest. This is quite a lot, especially considering how difficult it is to acquire this new currency. For those that already have all the raid weapons, Spoils of Conquest can be used to purchase more loot drops using chests at the end of raidsBecause both of these require you to have a decent supply, you’re going to want to take the time to farm Spoils of Conquest whenever possible. Thankfully, there are a couple of ways to get Spoils of Conquest:
- Raid chests
- Raid encounters
The Last Wish and Garden of Salvation raids reward 3 Spoils of Conquest per encounter. For the Deep Stone Crypt, each encounter rewards 5 Spoils of Conquest. Then there are the two hidden raid chests in the Deep Stone Crypt, each one rewards 10 Spoils of Conquest.In terms of actually farming Spoils of Conquest, a popular method is repeatedly completing the Crypt Security encounter in the Deep Stone Crypt. With the right team, practice, and plenty of patience, it’s possible to clear the encounter in a few minutes.
Earning Spoils of Conquest Solo
Unfortunately, there aren’t any easy ways of farming Spoils of Conquest by yourself. After Bungie removed the ability to earn Spoils of Conquest from Deep Stone Crypt chests, solo players have had their most reliable farming methods removedThough raids are six player activities, it’s possible to find unauthorised ways to reach the optional chests – or even complete entire challenges – solo. This is useful if you can’t get a group on a particular weekly reset, but still want to get your hands on additional gear rolls or Spoils of Conquest.For Vault of Glass, it’s possible to get the first bonus chest by glitching your way past the gate, which usually requires you completing the opening encounter.
Solo players can’t “farm” Spoils without an exploit we’ll discuss later, but solo players can still earn a healthy amount of Spoils without much work. This will involve using the Last Wish’s wishing wall and opening the first Deep Stone Crypt hidden chest. If you obtain every chest each week, that’s 30 Spoils of Conquest. Doing this on all three characters will grant 90 Spoils weekly, allowing you to purchase raid Exotics in as little as three weeks.
Last Wish Hidden Chests
There are two hidden chests in Last Wish that you can obtain solo:
1. Just before the Shuro Chi encounter, located halfway through the bridge section.
2. Just before the Morgeth encounter, before you cross the Ascendant Realm.
All three classes can obtain the Shuro Chi chest with ease, but Hunters will have a tough time getting the chest near Morgeth. It’s doable (and we’ll explain how), but consider obtaining the second hidden chest on your Titan and Warlock instead.Fortunately, Last Wish lets you spawn at these encounters by entering unique codes at the wishing wall room, located just before you face Kalli in the first encounter. A guide on how the wall works and each wish can be found here.
Infinite Spoils of Conquest Solo Farm
Using any chest farming strategy listed above, you can farm an infinite amount of Spoils by deleting one of your characters. How it works is simple:
1. Create a new Guardian.
2. Play the introductory New Light quest.
3. Boot up Last Wish or Deep Stone Crypt (Last Wish if you can’t transfer higher-level gear over).
4. Open the chest to gain Spoils of Conquest.
5. Delete your character.
6. Rinse and repeat.
While time-intensive, this is a fairly easy way of obtaining an infinite amount of Spoils of Conquest solo. It’s recommended that you create a new character that shares the same class as your main. That way, you can transfer gear over that is over 1,100 Power
