This currency, exclusive to Destiny 2 raids, can greatly assist in farming endgame gear.

What are Spoils of Conquest?
Spoils of Conquest serve as a currency within Destiny 2. You can only obtain them by completing raid encounters. You have the capacity to store up to 240 Spoils in your inventory, which can then be used to purchase various raid loot.
Where Can You Spend Spoils of Conquest?
The first place you can utilize Spoils of Conquest is at the end of certain raids. Raids such as The Deep Stone Crypt, Vault of Glass, Vow of the Disciple, and King’s Fall have loot caches that offer specific raid loot for purchase.
The cost for regular weapons and armor is 20 Spoils of Conquest, while Adept weapons will set you back 25 Spoils. It’s important to note that in order to buy specific weapons and armor from the caches, you must first obtain them as drops from raid encounters.
Additionally, the vendors in The Deep Stone Crypt and Vault of Glass allow you to purchase an extra encounter chest. These chests, priced at 60 Spoils of Conquest, provide an opportunity to obtain loot that you haven’t acquired yet. This feature, however, is not available in Vow of the Disciple.
Here are all the weapons you can obtain through these caches (armor is also available):
Monument to Lost Lights
The Monument to Lost Lights, located in The Tower, offers another way to spend your Spoils. At this kiosk, you can purchase some of the most potent exotics in the game. Keep in mind that the exotics in this category require Spoils of Conquest and are from raids that have been vaulted.
Here are the exotics that can be purchased using Spoils of Conquest (and Exotic Ciphers) at the Monument to Lost Lights:

How to Obtain Spoils of Conquest in Destiny 2
Getting Spoils of Conquest is relatively straightforward. All you need to do is play your favorite raid. Every raid completion rewards you with a certain number of spoils, with newer activities generally providing more. Here is a comprehensive list of the different ways you can currently obtain Spoils of Conquest:
|Raid||Spoils per Encounter||Spoils per Chest|
|Root of Nightmares||5||5|
|Vow of the Disciple||5||5|
|Vault of Glass||5||5|
How Many Spoils of Conquest Can You Earn per Raid?
By completing Vow of the Disciple or Vault of Glass, while finding all the hidden chests, you can expect to earn up to 30 Spoils of Conquest. King’s Fall, on the other hand, can reward you with up to 35 Spoils, thanks to its high number of encounters.
Now, let’s take a closer look at each raid’s spoils:
Root of Nightmares:
- Root of Nightmares encounters grant five Spoils of Conquest. This encounter can be farmed infinitely.
- Root of Nightmares’ secret chests grant five Spoils of Conquest. However, these chests only yield spoils once per character per week.
- King’s Fall encounters grant five Spoils of Conquest. This encounter can be farmed infinitely.
- King’s Fall’s secret chests grant five Spoils of Conquest. Similar to Root of Nightmares, these chests only yield spoils once per character per week.
Vow of the Disciple:
- Vow of the Disciple encounters grant five Spoils of Conquest. This encounter can be farmed infinitely.
- Vow of the Disciple’s secret chests grant five Spoils of Conquest. Likewise, these chests only yield spoils once per character per week.
Vault of Glass:
- Vault of Glass encounters grant five Spoils of Conquest after you’ve completed that particular encounter for the week. The first clear of Oracles each week won’t grant you spoils, but subsequent completions will.
- Vault of Glass’ secret chests grant five Spoils of Conquest. These chests also only yield spoils once per character per week.
- All legacy raids, including Deep Stone Crypt, Garden of Salvation, and Last Wish, grant three Spoils of Conquest per encounter.
While passively earning spoils through raid completions is effective, there are a couple of ways to farm this currency. Let’s explore those in the next section.
Spoils of Conquest Farming
For efficient Spoils of Conquest farming, it’s recommended to repeatedly complete the Templar encounter in the Vault of Glass raid. This method not only offers a quick and easy farm, but you also earn the maximum number of spoils per encounter (five). To optimize this strategy, follow these steps:
- Obtain a checkpoint for the Templar encounter.
- Have your fireteam join you in the raid, then switch to a second character and join your fireteam in the raid. This method allows you to complete the encounter while preserving the checkpoint for future clears.
- Defeat the Templar to complete the encounter.
- Switch back to your first character.
- Repeat steps 2-4.
In addition to this method, you can also farm Spoils of Conquest solo every week.
Solo Farming for Spoils of Conquest
With a solo approach, you can quickly acquire 15+ Spoils of Conquest per week. Simply loot the first secret chest in Vow of the Disciple, which can be easily achieved on all three characters every week.

There are also a few other hidden chests in other raids that you can reach solo. However, it’s worth mentioning that these methods require more complex maneuvers and may involve going out of bounds. Fallout’s comprehensive video covers all solo chests that can technically be found:
Congratulations! You now have a thorough understanding of Spoils of Conquest in Destiny 2. From their acquisition to their utilization, you are well-equipped to navigate their intricacies.
