How to get Spectral Pages (Fast Farm) in Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost

Spectral Pages are the key item to get to make the most of Festival of the Lost. They can be acquired through a number of sources in the game, but today I am going to run through an efficient method of farming, so you can head into Haunted Sectors, convert them into Manifested Pages and get that Festival of the Lost loot. Today I am going to run through an efficient and fast farming method for getting spectral pages, so you can quickly complete the triumphs needed for that Festival of the Lost title.

Before we get into it today, let me know in the comments your top tips for getting spectral pages. Also, if you want to skip to the fast farming method, use the timestamps marked down below.

Why get Spectral pages

The gameplay loop in Festival of the Lost is as follows; get Spectral Pages from activities in the game like Strikes, Gambit, Crucible, Public Events, Lost Sectors etc. Then take Spectral Pages into Haunted Sectors, and complete the activity to convert them into Manifested Pages, which in turn you can unlock pages in the Book of the Forgotten, which is in the Tower next to Eva Levante.

How to get Spectral Pages

First of all, you want to make sure you are wearing your Festival of the Lost mask. This can be purchased from Eva Levante, and this is key to getting Festival of the Lost currencies like Candy and Spectral Pages.

You can get Spectral Pages from a variety of activities in Destiny 2, pretty much any activity is going to grant you Spectral Pages. However, most activities only give you a handful at most. Strikes give 4-5, Crucible gives you a similar amount, and Public events only give you 2 per completion. Campaign story missions are a good way to get Spectral Pages, as they give you 9 or 10 pages per completion.

You can do any activity you like to get Spectral Pages, Bungie isn’t making you go out of your way to do an activity you don’t like. If you like Vanguard Ops, you can sit in that playlist, if you like Crucible, then you can go there. The same goes for Dares of Eternity, Dungeons, Raids etc. However, if you want to gather Spectral Pages efficiently, then you’ll want to maximise your time by completing the shortest activity possible that grants the most pages. That method is Campaign Story missions.

How to farm Spectral Pages fast

For this method, you are going to need a couple of things. You’ll need at least 2 Guardians on your account that you can swap between and swap a checkpoint. This means you’ll need to complete the Festival of the Lost introduction quest on at least 2 characters. You’ll also need access to the Witch Queen Campaign missions.

Once you have done this then you want to find another Guardian. This could be a friend, clanmate or someone on LFG. I was doing this with someone on LFG, so if you are worried about speaking to other Guardians, they don’t worry because loads of people are doing the same thing right now. Just make a post saying something like ‘Spectral Page Campaign Mission Farm’ and you’ll find someone in no time at all.

Once you have found another Guardian, then you want to load into The Investigation mission in the Witch Queen Campaign, you can find this on Savathun’s Throne World. You can do normal or legendary, but normal is going to be much faster.

Make your way to the end of the mission, and there’s a checkpoint there just before you fight the Hive. You have to take out three Barrier Guards, they are yellow bar Hive. At this point you can quit out and change character, this is going to save the checkpoint on your first guardian.

Once you have changed character, you want to load back in to rejoin your Guardian friend or random, so you join at the end of the mission, then simply finish off the barrier knights and Lucent Hive Wizard. I recommend using Gjallarhorn on your second Guardian, as this is going to help you take them out very quickly.

When you have finished off the Lucent Hive Wizard, hop on your sparrow and ride to the end of the mission to meet up with Fynch, and you’ll get 9 or 10 Spectral Pages.

At this point, you can quit the mission, and change character again. Given you saved the checkpoint at the end of the mission on your first Guardian, get your farming buddy to join you, and then load into the mission once again. Once you have started loading in, and you see the ships flying, you can instantly quit out and change the character and repeat the process again.

By doing this process, you’ll quickly get to the cap of 75 spectral pages.

Other ways to farm Spectral Pages

There are a few other fast farming methods to get Spectral Pages. They are going to be fast, but nothing really comes close to the campaign mission farms.

  • Lake of Shadows – You can select the Lake of Shadows Strike from the EDZ and run that over and over. You should be able to get runs down to around 4-6 mins if you can get it done quickly.
  • EDZ Public events – There are loads of public events on the EDZ, running these over and over, making sure to trigger the heroic mode each time, which will net you fast Spectral Pages.
  • Nightmare Containment – This is the activity from Season of the Haunted. Runs take much longer but can be good if you want to switch things up and you are bored of the other farming methods.

How to get Manifested Pages

Now you have a decent stack of Spectral Pages, go into Haunted Sectors and complete the activity. You’ll want to kill all 10 Headless Ones in the quickest amount of time possible. If you use Auto Rifles, Snipers and Pulse Rifles, then this is going to help you progress some of the Triumphs for the Festival of the Lost seal. Once you complete the activity you’ll get 12 or 13 Manifested Pages. Then go to the Tower and exchange the Manifested Pages at the Book of the Forgotten.
