How to Get Elemental Orbs in Destiny 2
The newest Solstice of Heroes event is now live in Destiny 2. It gives players access to the new Solstice gear, which can be upgraded to legendary status using special elemental orbs.
There are three types of orbs that you need to get to be able to fully upgrade your gear: Solar, Arc, and Void. If you want to know how to get them all, then follow our quick guide below.
How to Farm Solar, Arc, and Void Orbs
The three types of orbs represent the three types of elemental damage in Destiny 2. That's why if you want to farm for a specific type of orbs, you will need to play as the subclass that corresponds to the given element.
You will find the complete breakdown of the elements for each subclass below:
- Solar: Gunslinger, Sunbreaker, Dawnblade
- Arc: Arcstrider, Striker, Stormcaller
- Void: Nightstalker, Sentinel, Voidwalker
You obviously need to have your Solstice armor on and your weapon should also have the same element as your subclass before farming. For example, if you play as a Solar subclass, but you run a Void weapon, there is a chance that you will sometimes get Void orbs instead of Solar ones. So if you want to maximize the farming of a certain type of orbs, be sure to play with the same type of weapon as well.
Method 1: Killing Elites
The orbs drop from the enemies, but it has been reported that the highest rate of orbs drop from the Elites. So aim for these types of enemies specifically. The highest number of Elites can be found on Nessus at Exodus Black.
Just hop on there and start an adventure of killing Assault Scouts with all three different subclasses, and you will have enough orbs to fully upgrade your Solstice gear very quickly.
Method 2: Public Events
This method isn't as good as the first one, but you can still try it out and see for yourselves. It involves you finding any Strike that can let you take part in Public Events.
Choose the best Public Event to your liking and start killing enemies there. So this is just another way of farming elemental orbs in Destiny 2.
