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.
Updated June 4th, 2021 by Charles Burgar: Bungie has made Spoils of Conquest much more difficult to acquire in Season of the Splicer, forcing most solo players to find a raid team in order to earn this rare resource. We've updated this guide to include every current acquisition method, including an out-of-bounds exploit that allows solo players to earn Spoils.
How To Earn Spoils Of Conquest
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. You can obtain Spoils of Conquest through the following:
- x4 Vault of Glass Chests (20 per character)
- Legacy raid encounters (3 per encounter)
- Farming Vault of Glass encounters (5 per encounter)
- Vault of Glass challenges (5 per challenge completion; currently unavailable)
Each hidden chest in the Vault of Glass raid grants five Spoils of Conquest per character per week. Opening the chest multiple times on the same character does nothing. Completing Vault of Glass encounters past your first clear of the week will grant five Spoils per encounter clear. Clearing a legacy raid encounter—Last Wish, Garden of Salvation, and Deep Stone Crypt raids—grants three Spoils per encounter for your first clear. Farming the same legacy raid in one week will grant no additional Spoils. Hidden chests in legacy raids don't grant Spoils either.
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.
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 removed.
With that said, if you're comfortable with breaching out of bounds, it is possible to collect the first chest in Vault of Glass entirely solo. This will grant five Spoils per character per week, allowing you to obtain 15 Spoils per week. YouTuber Jarv has a short guide on how to do this.
