Exotic Engram Farming 2.0

Exotic Engram Farming 2.0

Written by: SHO 6 0 on September 28, 2015.
A little more than a week ago Bungie introduced the Three of Coins rare item into Destiny's economy marking the greatest Xur day in history. For those who don't know the Three of Coins increases the odds of an exotic engram dropping from killing an Ultra tier enemy. In classic fashion the community started mass producing exotic engrams in several ways but most commonly in the Scrounge of Winter mission. Where players drained the end mission ultra of his health and killed themselve and the ultra at the same time with the Three of Coin active to produce a exotic engram. On September 24, 2015 In the 2.0.0.4. hot fix the Three of Coins received a nerf which provided a small increase in exotic engram drop chance when rapidly killing ultras, or so we thought.

Draksis may be dead but not forgotten. The possibility of exotic engram farming still exists in the black garden. The last mission of vanilla Destiny where the end mission encounter puts players against three ultras instead of one. The method is simple: pop a three of coins, kill an ultra, and reins and repeat. For me the average was lower but a lot closer then you may think. I haven't got an exotic engram in a strike mission of any kind with the Three of Coins active even if I landed the last hit on the ultra but I did go 4 in 1 from last weeks dailies that feature an ultra. I know this may not be what Bungie intended but I would rather use the Three of Coins than buy an exotic engram and their introduction has changed the value of the strange coin.
