Destiny 2 – How to farm Herealways currency in Beyond Light

Destiny 2 is full of currencies and they can sometimes be a little vague, but it’s worth paying attention to them because they are going to help you get access to the new loot pool for Beyond Light. Today I am going to talk about a Herealways farming technique to help you efficiently gather as much of this currency as possible, so you can get access to the Europa rewards from Variks and the Empire Hunts. The following is a guide for how to farm Herealways currency in Destiny 2 Beyond Light.

First of all, you want to finish up the campaign and then also the post-campaign missions from Variks. This is going to open up the Empire Hunt quests, and from these, you are going to be able to get some of the new loot in Beyond Light like the new Coriolis Force Fusion Rifle and Thermal Erosion Machine Gun. You will get a bunch of these new weapons from the campaign, but the machine gun and the fusion are pretty special weapons in their own right.

To be able to access the Empire Hunts you’re going to need Herealways currency. This is a new currency used with Variks and can be found on Europa. Once you get through the main campaign you’ll unlock Variks’ Sabotage options, and if you inspect this you’ll see 3 tiers to unlock. Herealways can be rare at first, but by unlocking a few key tiers here at Variks you can make this much easier and faster and soon you’ll be gathering Herelaways pieces from all over Europa in no time at all.

Herealways can be found from completing Lost Sectors, Patrols and Public events on Europa, so you can roam around the icy moon and do this, but you will want to find a much more efficient method. On a regular completion of a Lost sector, you’ll get 3 Herealways pieces, but if you focus on ranking up Variks then this is going to unlock bonuses allowing you to get 6-10 pieces on a Lost Sector completion. There are 3 unlocks you should focus on in Variks menu.

  • Empire Hunt 1 – Empire Hunt Quests cost less
  • Europan Protector II – Earn more herealways pieces by defeating with Stasis
  • Europan Protector III – Earn more herealways pieces by defeating with precision final blows

By unlocking these bonuses it’s going to be cheaper to do the Empire Hunts and this, in turn, will allow you to get more of the Europa loot that comes with Beyond Light, that includes nice new weapons and armour. The sabotage quests can be expensive, costing 20 herealways pieces at a time. Let’s have a look at the fastest way to gather these.

For this Herealways Farm, we want to focus on Lost Sectors on Europa. Perdition is good because it’s smaller than the other Lost Sectors found on Europa with the enemies often bunching together.

You can go in with any loadout you feel comfortable with, but a Warmind Cell build can be good here as it’s going to allow you to cause a lot of destruction in a short space of time, which is good because we want to be getting through these Lost Sectors nice and quickly.

Warmind Cells can be generated from Seraph Weapons if you have any of those, from Season of the Worthy. The Ikelos Weapons are also good for these, which were available last season. The best weapons include the Ikelos SMG, Ikelos Shotgun or Sniper. You can also add some mods to your armour to help you generate more and powerful Warmind Cell explosions like Global Reach.

In terms of other weapons in my Kinetic Slot I am using Izangi’s Burden Exotic Sniper, which is one of the best DPS weapons in the game. Other good options here is the Traveler’s Chosen Exotic Sidearm. If you are looking for a non-exotic option then Supremacy Sniper is good (from the Last Wish Raid) or the new SMG Friction Fire (from Wrathborn Hunts) is also a good pick.

For the energy slot, the Ikelos SMG is good for the Seraph Rounds and Warmind Cells, or you could use the Ikelos Sniper too. Sunshot is also good, as that’s going to create an area of effect damage and kill every in your path very quickly.

For the power slot, there’s only one really and that’s Falling Guillotine. It’s still one of the best DPS legendary weapons in the game and great for getting rid of the boss as quickly as possible. If you don’t have this then the new Machine Gun Thermal Erosion is very good at clearly enemies out of the way very quickly indeed. Anarchy is also good for bosses if you’re looking for an exotic option.

If you have unlocked Europan Protector II then use your stasis subclass and that’s going to help you get more Herealways by defeating enemies with your super. Unlock Europan Protector III for more Herealways when you get precision kills, maximising the number of Herealways pieces you get from a single run. It’s going to take 2-3 mins to run through the Perdition Lost Sector with this kind of build, and hopefully, you’ll get somewhere between 6-10 Herealways pieces per run.

Now you have collected a bunch of Herealways currency, then it’s off to run some Empire Hunts. Don’t sleep on these because the weapons and gear is really good, plus the boss fights are pretty good fun too.
