On your journey to your first Forge, one quest step involves collecting Radiant Seeds. These drop from powerful enemies, or should I say, they CAN drop from powerful enemies. Powerful enemies are anything with a yellow, or orange, health bar. They can randomly spawn in the various playable areas of the game, show up in Strikes, and can be found on Heroic Adventures. There is an easy way to find, and farm, a lot of them.
How To Quickly Farm Radiant Seeds
First, open up Nessus in the Director. While the Raid used to be accessible from the main Director screen, expansions mean it has been pushed down a layer. Load into the Leviathan Raid. Make sure you have a good Power weapon with you. I like to use Swords. They will pretty much one shot the enemies you are about to fight, and can still do damage even without ammo. This allows you to get a couple of extra sneaky kills in.
Now, directly ahead of you, you should be able to see a lot of nice powerful enemies just standing there. They won’t attack you at all until you make a move. So, it’s time to make a move. Wipe them out. It really shouldn’t be an issue at all, as long as you are at a decent Power level. If you are trying to get into the Black Armory, then this is pretty much a given. All you need to do when they are all dead is leave the Raid, then load right back in. They will have spawned back in, and you can kill them all again. A quick and easy way to rack up the kills you need on powerful enemies and get yourself Radiant Seeds.
Now, just some anecdotal evidence here, but when I used a Super to wipe out the group I had a lot more Radiant Seeds drop than if I just took them all out one by one. I have no idea if this is a thing that will help you, but it is worth giving a shot.
Editor’s Note: The Whisper of the Worm sniper rifle is excellent here if you can land critical headshots.
