Get to farming, Guardian!

First off, you need to know that in order to get Silver Leaves you need to complete activities within Destiny 2 wearing at least one piece of the new Solstice Sunlit armour set.

Things like the Vanguard, Crucible, and Gambit playlists are great ways to rack up some Silver Leaves. You can try Nightfalls as well.

Don't worry if you think you need to acquire the Sunlit set first, as Eva Levante, the NPC that shows up at the Tower when a new event rolls around, will hand you a full set for free as soon as you speak to her.

Best way to farm Silver Leaves

You'd be surprised to know that playing the core Destiny 2 activities aren't actually the fastest way to earn Silver Leaves. You'll get between four and five of them for completing Strikes or Crucible matches, which usually take at the very least 10 minutes.

The actual best way to farm Silver Leaves is by doing Heroic public events. These take significantly less time and drop five Silver Leaves.

So our recommendation is to constantly rotate a single location (preferably the EDZ since the easiest Heroic public events are there), find active public events and trigger their Heroic versions.

In no time you'll be swimming in Silver Leaves to then turn into Silver Ash and upgrade your Sunlit armour!
