Destiny 2 The Witch Queen comes with a new “shaping” crafting system

How to farm Neutral Element in Destiny 2

As we’ve already mentioned, one of the main new features in The Witch Queen is the new Deepsight ability. Among other things, Deepsight will unlock Resonant Weapons. These red-bordered weapons can be acquired through various in-game activities and random drops. Their main characteristic is that they can be “reshaped” which essentially means customized by using various components.

You’ll use a lot of Neutral Element in this reshaping system. Many players will burn through their supplies before realising that they need 2000 Neutral Element to upgrade the Enigma Glaive, the first Resonant weapon you’ll receive. And that’s just for starters, later on, many of the most powerful weapons in The Witch Queen, including the elusive Osteo Striga SMG, will require ludicrous amounts of Neutral Element.

Attuning Deepsight Resonance Weapons is a best way to farm Resonant Materials

The most efficient way to farm Neutral Element is by attuning Deepsight Resonance on Resonant Weapons. By attuning Resonant Weapons that contain Deepsight Resonance, you will extract the Resonant Materials. You’ll use these materials to either reshape the existing Resonant Weapons or craft (shape) new weapons. You can attune weapons by simply using them in combat and completing various in-game activities. Once the Attunement Progress is completed, you’ll receive 200 Neutral Element.

It sounds like a hefty chunk, but you’ll definitely want to attune as many Resonant Weapons as you can because you’ll need a lot of Neutral Element. Another way to get it is by levelling crafted weapons. Though this will give you only 15 of it per level – it’s a much less efficient method.
