How to farm Dreaming City Weapons Fast and Easy in Destiny 2

Dreaming City weapons are now easily available and farmable inside Destiny 2. What used to be an annoying grind, now takes a matter of minutes to get great, relevant legendary weapons inside Destiny 2, and these are great for PVE and PVP activities. Today I’m going to run through how to get these weapons, plus check out the god roll guide for the Dreaming City weapons, so you can kit yourself out with some of the best-looking weapons in the game while getting ready for Witch Queen.

Changes to Blind Well 3.4.0.1

Bungie recently announced some changes to the Blind Well, which is pretty important. This was a line in the patch notes from the 16th December 2021.

“Added guaranteed drops of Dreaming City weapons from completing the Blind Well event.”

Previously to get Dreaming City weapons it was all about RNG. You may get a weapon to drop from a weekly bounty from Petra, or perhaps a drop from a Lost Sector, but it wasn’t guaranteed. This change is big, especially since all Dreaming City weapons have been brought up to current standards and new perks have been added.

How to farm Dreaming City Weapons

Before you start farming it’s worth going to speak to Petra Venj on the Dreaming City and picking up her bounties as some of them relate to Blind Well, and also getting kills on the Dreaming City. Seeing as we’re going to be farming on the Dreaming City, then picking up the bounties can’t hurt.

Next, we want to head to The Blind Well. If you’ve played the game for some time then you most likely know about The Blind Well activity. But for new players, you may not have interacted with the Blind Well before. This can be found on the Dreaming City and you can find the node in the middle of the map.

It’s best to go into this activity with a fireteam if you want to do it fast, given the sheer amount of enemies. There’s light mechanics here, but nothing too major. You have to survive waves of attacks, then take on a boss at the end.

To be able to start the Blind Well you need to add a Charge of Light. These can be purchased from Petra Venj. There are 3 tiers of Charge of Light, and as you go higher in Tiers, the tougher the activity will be.

Tier I Blind Well is the quickest and the easiest and you’ll still get a weapon drop at the end, so if you are farming this is probably the most efficient way to do it. You can do Tier III, as the first time you do it each week you’ll get a double drop. This might be two weapons, or you can also get the armor in there too, but the first run of the week on Tier III (Heroic) you’ll get extra loot.

Each run should take you somewhere between 5-10 mins, and if you can coordinate with a fireteam then you’ll be able to get this time down. If you don’t have a team don’t worry too much, given the activity has guaranteed weapon drops at the moment, there are loads of Guardians farming Blind Well. If you do get stuck and want a team, then hop onto LFG to find some teammates.

In about an hour of farming, I was able to get Twilight Oath with No Distractions, Snapshot Sights (great for PVP), Retold Tale with Quickdraw, and Snapshot Sights (again, good for PVP) and Vouchsafe with Fourth Time’s the Charm and Dragonfly.
