The new Strand subclass in Destiny 2’s Lightfall expansion is out, but players will still need to grind for the final bits of unlocking before they can start using it. All the Aspects, Fragments, and Grenades for the new darkness subclass require Strand Meditations, a new currency that’s earned in various ways in the game. Here’s the fastest way to farm them.
After beating the Lightfall campaign, players can head to the Hall of Heroes on Neomuna and interact with Nimbus to meditate at the Pouka Pond. Doing so will unlock the Strand subclass and a few Aspects, the new Grapple grenade ability, and one Fragment. All other Aspects and grenades will need to be purchased with Strand Meditations, which cost 200 each. As of right now, there are 14 Aspects and Fragments to purchase in total, although some are locked behind time or the completion of the Root of Nightmares raid on March 10.
Players can earn Strand Meditations by completing Patrol missions in any zone (and the new Terminal Overload public event in Neptune), opening Lost Sector chests, defeating high-value enemies and bosses in the Vex Incursion zones, and killing enemy yellow bar Guardians with a Strand power. However, the most efficient way to earn them is to join a Fireteam and work together in the Hall of Heroes and in the Vex Incursion zones to complete Patrols and the new Terminal Overload public events, as well as the Root of Nightmares raid. In a short amount of time, you’ll have enough Strand Meditations to purchase a few Aspects and a few Fragments.
