If you’ve played the game during the Season of Opulence which was released back in 2019, then you’ll be surprised to see some of its best weapons make a comeback in Season of the Haunted. Specifically, you’ll find weapons such as Drang, Austringer, Beloved, and Calus Minitool.
However, obtaining them isn’t as straightforward as it seems. If you have no idea where to find them, then this guide is for you.
Best Weapons Farm in Destiny 2 Season of the Haunted
There are two main ways to farm these Opulent weapons. First is through the Nightmare Containment activity inside the Derelict Leviathan. Second is by unlocking Opulent Weapon tuning. Let’s have a look at each of these methods.
Nightmare Containment Farming
For this farming method, you’ll want to head over to the Derelict Leviathan and do the Nightmare Containment activity. However, completing the activity itself is not the best method to farm these weapons.
Instead, you’ll want to collect as many Vestiges of Dread as possible. These will allow you to obtain seasonal rewards more often.
You’ll be using this new currency at the end of the Containment activity, shortly after defeating the final boss in tier 3. After defeating the boss, turn in 500 Vestiges of Dread to the Nightmare Harvester scepter to obtain random drops, including Opulent weapons.
Keep in mind that they’re not a guaranteed drop, but they’re part of the loot pool alongside other exciting seasonal drops as well. This is why you want to get as many Vestiges of Dread as possible.
You can earn this currency by doing just about everything, from completing public events in the Derelict Leviathan to joining ritual playlist activities.
Also, you can equip the Eidolon Pursuant in order to increase the amount of Vestiges of Dread you earn.
Another way is to open the Opulent chests which are scattered all over the Derelict Leviathan. However, you’ll need Opulent keys to open them, and there’s no guarantee that an Opulent weapon will drop. But then again, they’re part of the loot pool so you should eventually get one soon.
Opulent Weapon Tuning
If you want a reliable means of getting the Opulent weapons, then your best option is Opulent Weapon tuning. Basically, you have to tune their Umbral Engrams via the Crown of Sorrow. However, you’ll need Opulent Umbral Energy and Umbral Engrams to do so. You also have to upgrade your Crown of Sorrow as well.
Though reliable, this will require a lot more farming since you’ll have to obtain a variety of stuff all at once. For the Crown of Sorrow upgrades, you have to complete seasonal challenges as well as weekly story missions.
They will grant you Figments of Darkness which lets you unlock new abilities, including the ability to tune Opulent weapons.
The tuning option for Opulent weapons can be unlocked in the Manifesting row, and you’ll need to unlock four upgrades prior to it first. In other words, you have to upgrade your Crown Influence to 16.
After unlocking the tuning ability, you’ll then need to farm Opulent Umbral Energy which can be obtained from the same method used for farming Opulent weapons in the Derelict Leviathan.
SWTOR G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3
How far will your reputation take you?
Star Wars: The Old Republic is BioWare MMORPG based on the acclaimed Star Wars universe. As Galactic Season 3 kicked in, so did new challenges. Today, we’re talking about G.A.M.E., a new reputation system introduced along with this new season.
G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3 – SWTOR
In SWTOR, Galactic Seasons are long seasonal events that grant limited-time rewards upon the completion of daily and weekly challenges dubbed Priority Objectives. Subscribers earn extra rewards, but everyone can participate.
Season 3, titled Luck of the Draw, brought with it the Gambling Authority and Management Entity, popularised by the acronym G.A.M.E. Basically, it’s a new form to track your reputation. But it comes with a few differences.
Unlike the other reputation tracks, G.A.M.E. is tied into Season 3. Another difference is that you won’t be able to see the reputation track for G.A.M.E. until you earn 1 reputation point with the faction.
First of all, you’ll need to unlock the first level of the Season 3 track. This will allow you to claim the PH4-LNX Protocol Lockbox and, with it, activate the new companion, PH4-LNX (Fey, as she likes to be called).
As you play through Season 3, you might notice that some quests and enemy drops give a new type of currency known as the G.A.M.E. Analysis Module.
When Fey is on your ship, you can take those Modules to her and convert them into G.A.M.E. reputation. Each Module is worth 25 Reputation Points (37 if you’re a Subscriber).
Note that you can only hold up to 200 Analysis Modules and only earn up to 200 per week. Additionally, you can only earn 5.000 Reputation Points per week, no matter how many boosts you have.
If you’re wondering about the math of it all, you’ll need 70.000 Reputation Points to reach max reputation, which accounts for 2.800 Modules without any boost. Good luck!
(And I’m sorry to report there are no ways to farm the Modules. Having Fey as your companion, however, increases the chance of enemies dropping more of the item. You can also trade 500 Jawa Junk (purple) for Jawa Intel with Brrazz in Cartel Bazaar.)
There are two bugs worth mentioning. One, be careful with skipping Fey’s dialogue since it might cause the Reputation Points to not enter your inventory.
Second, if you’re in a group, you might be unable to talk to Fey at all. To correct that, you’ll need to leave the group, turn in your Modules, and then re-join the group.
Now, for the big question: what are the rewards?
You can earn three legacy titles associated with G.A.M.E.: G.A.M.E. Representative, Mid-level Management, and Deputy Director of G.A.M.E.
Aside from that, the G.A.M.E. reputation track is actually more about helping you to earn rewards on the Season Tracker faster, so don’t expect unique rewards here.
Either way, I hope you enjoy Season 3 of Star Wars: The Old Republic!
