Where to Find Etheric Spiral in Destiny 2: Forsaken

Bungie has added many new items and mechanics in Destiny 2: Forsaken. The Etheric Spiral is one of the most common and most obviously expected new consumables in the expansion. Etheric Spiral is the new planetary material, or resource, found in the Tangled Shore, one of the new patrol zones in Destiny 2: Forsaken.

According to Bungie’s lore, Etheric Spiral is an Eliksni Ether that reacted with anaerobic fungus to produce this strange plant. Sure, why not. In practical terms, Etheric Spiral is the stuff you’re going to need to upgrade weapons using the newly introduced infusion system. You may also need it to bargain with the Spider.

Etheric Spiral can be found in many ways, including the following:

  • Harvest off the orange plants that grown in the Tangled Shore
  • Found in resource and region chests
  • As a reward for killing bosses
  • As a reward for completing public events, such as the Cryo-Pod event and the Ether Ritual event

It’s not difficult to collect a significant amount of Etheric Spiral. The 96 Etheric Spiral in my screenshot above were gathered without trying. However, do keep in mind that Bungie’s hidden chest cooldown mechanic may limit how frequently you can farm Etheric Spiral. Your best course of action is to kill everything, open every chest, participate in every public event, and grab Etheric Spiral off all orange plants whenever possible.

Good luck farming Etheric Spiral, Guardian! For more guides on how to flourish in Destiny 2, visit our Guide Hub.
