Unlocking the new Strand subclass and element type in Destiny 2: Lightfall just got a bit more interesting. You’ll need to get your hands on something called Strand Meditations to unlock all the Aspects, Fragments, and Grenades.
While you may have gained some already, it’s not immediately apparent how to get a bunch of this new item. Below, we’ll run you through all of the Destiny 2 Lightfall activities that will net you Strand Meditations so you can unlock the full power of Strand, as well as potential farming methods to get you there even quicker.
How to get Strand Meditations Destiny 2 Lightfall
So how can you get more Strand Meditations? Utilize the Strand subclass both within and after the campaign has been completed and you’ll start seeing them drop from various activities.
These activities include the Vex Incursion Zone on Neomuna, highlighted by an area of digital rain and a turquoise and pink diamond, and even in the Partition: Hard Reset campaign mission.
For the full list of activities where you will receive Strand Meditations see below:
- Lightfall quest completions
- Public Events in Neomuna
- Completing Patrols in Neomuna
- Defeating roaming High-Value Targets
- Completing activities in the Vex Incursion Zone in Neomuna
- Lost Sector chests in Neomuna
- Partition missions
- Defeating enemies with Strand
How to farm Strand Meditations Destiny 2 Lightfall
The best way to farm Strand Meditations fast is to join a Fireteam and work together. Spread out and keep doing patrols, public events, and Lost Sectors. This may seem like a simple idea, but this is the best way to get a farm going and allow you to reach all of the Strand subclass unlocks in no time.
Don’t forget to pick up Nimbus bounties too when doing all of the above.
Moreover, completing everything will also level up Nimbus, the go-to Cloud Strider NPC. You’ll not only get Strand Meditations as you level, but if you reach level 18, it will enable you to gain 200 Strand Meditations a week, certainly nothing to complain about.
For even more leveling at Nimbus, thus meaning more Strand Meditations, you can look to locate and loot all regional chests on Neomuna as well as picking up the various antenna that are dotted around the map, thus leading you to a standard chest that you can open and granting more Nimbus XP.
