Destiny 2 How to Get Opulent Umbral Energy

Destiny 2 Opulent Umbral Energy

Opulent Umbral Energy is a material that was newly added during the Season of the Haunted, which players needed for acquiring specific gear.

The Crown of Sorrow provides players with the ability to Focus Umbral Engrams into Opulent Weapons or Haunted Weapons and Armor.

Farming Opulent Umbral Energy is a must for those who want to obtain better variants of the Season of the Haunted gear they previously obtained.

Where to Get Opulent Umbral Energy?

Opulent Umbral Energy can be obtained from doing the Sever missions which take place in the Derelict Leviathan but can be selected from the Moon in the destinations tab.

Once players have unlocked the Sever activities, they can choose between which ones they want to do and play them to get Opulent Umbral Energy.

How to Get Opulent Umbral Energy?

There are currently two ways to farm Opulent Umbral Energy efficiently while there are also two additional ways to obtain them. The Nightmare Containment Public Event and the Sever activities are currently the best ways to get Opulent Umbral Energy.

Below you can read more about all those four ways of getting the Opulent Umbral Energy:

1) Nightmare Containment Public Event

Completing Containment Nightmare Public Events on Castellum (Derelict Leviathan) can reward players with Opulent Energy when they bind Vestiges of Dread.

This requires you to complete Tier 3 of the event and will allow you to interact with the Nightmare Harvester to bind the Vestiges of Dread for rewards.

There is also an upgrade at the Crown of Sorrows called “Umbral Binding” which provides you with more Opulent Umbral Energy when you bind Vestiges of Dread.

Currently this is considered the best Umbral Energy farm method alongside doing Sever missions for their chests once you have multiple Bound Presence.

2) Sever Activity Reward Chests

Opulent Umbral Energy can also be obtained by opening the Bound Chests at the end of Sever activities, which requires completing the mission.

The chest will become available after you have defeated the final boss and will require at least 1 Bound Presence to be opened.

Having more than 1 Bound Presence will consume all of them to provide you with more rewards based on the amount that you have.

3) Seasonal of the Haunted Challenge Rewards

Aside from the two previously mentioned methods, which are the best ways to farm Opulent Umbral Energy, you may also get them as rewards from Seasonal Challenges.

There are certain challenges that you can complete which will reward you with an amount of Opulent Umbral Energy.

These may only be claimed once so they are not something you can repeat an unlimited number of times but every drop counts.

4) Season of the Haunted Rank Rewards

Another way to get Opulent Umbral energy is through rewards from the Season of the Haunted level-up rewards.
