Upgrading your gear in Destiny 2 takes some of the rarest materials in the game, and it makes since one of the rarest and hardest to get is one of the most important. It takes time and patience, but here’s how to farm Enhancement Prisms.
Tips on How to Farm Enhancement Prisms the Easiest Ways in Destiny 2
There are more ways than ever to farm Enhancement Prisms in Destiny 2. There was a time when the only good way to do it was higher-difficulties Nightfall activities. Now, there are almost a half dozen ways to get them, but only a few are consistently farmable without significant effort. Here are the best ways to get Enhancement prisms:
Yes. Nightfalls are still the best way to get tons and tons of Enhancement Prisms. Master and Grandmaster difficulties offer the most, but take the most time. To be as efficient as possible, I suggest focusing on Hero and Legend difficulties. Though the chance to drop isn’t amazing, they’re much easier to complete — I’m talking 10 minutes with a good fireteam. Legend can offer two or three, while can offer two.
Legend and Master Lost Sectors
If you have a build that can do them quickly (2-5 minutes for certain Lost Sectors), you have a good chance of getting one or two Enhancement Prisms per completion. Better yet, you can also farm Exotics while you farm Prisms.
Buying them from Master Rahool
The Cryptarch at the Tower now allows you to trade in 10 Enhancement Prism Cores and 10,000 Glimmer at the Material Exchange. You can also spend 10 Enhancement Cores and 2,500 Glimmer at his Special Offers for a limited amount of time each week. Enhancement Cores are best earned through Gunsmith bounties and dismantling Legendary gear
The Coil Activity from Season of the Wish
Right now, earning higher-tier medals in The Coil activity, which take you into the third and fourth run, have a higher and higher chance of awarding Enhancement Prisms and other endgame materials. Platinum finishes of over 150,000 points are the most rewarding both in terms of loot and materials.
Visit Vendors for Enhancement Prisms
You can also get a few Enhancement Prisms from various vendors in Destiny 2 as a reward for increasing your reputation with them. There are only two per track on Zavala, Shaxx, and the Drifter, but it’s something. If, like me, you have a lot of level 10 armor you don’t use anymore, dismantling it refunds six Prisms, so if you’re running low, doing a little Vault cleaning can be a good idea.
Those are my best tips for farming Enhancement Prisms in Destiny 2. There are sadly only a few relatively easy ways to get them, but the endgame has always been about grinding higher-difficulty activities over and over and over again.
