The Warlord’s Ruin dungeon is finally here and we’re here to share everything we know and, more importantly, help you farm its top-tier loot. 

As we’ve done since the release of the Deep Stone Crypt raid, we take on the challenge of putting together the first verified loot table for this new Dungeon. This guide will cover the entire Warlord’s Ruin loot table, including the new armor set, Legendary weapons, and Exotics.

Is Warlord’s Ruin farmable?

Warlord’s Ruin is farmable for unlimited loot, meaning you can run it as many times per week as you want. The Dungeon Exotic, however, can only be farmed once per character per week.

This is how you can farm dungeons in Destiny 2, including the Warlord’s Ruin:

  • Go through the dungeon on your first character until you reach the encounter you want to farm.
  • Start the encounter and wipe (i.e., die without beating it).
  • Ask your Fireteam to wait. Change characters and log into a character that hasn’t run the dungeon that week.
  • On that second character, join your Fireteam again.
  • Wipe again. Now your second character has the proper checkpoint.

 And that’s it. You’ll then be able to farm that encounter ad nauseam until reset! To continue farming, you’ll need to:

  • Launch the dungeon using your second character (the one that is holding the checkpoint).
  • Change characters and rejoin your Fireteam on your first character.
  • Complete the encounter for loot.
  • Exit the dungeon, switch characters again, and repeat Step 1.

Warlord’s Ruin Dungeon Release Date

The Warlord’s Ruin dungeon was released on December 1, 2023, at 9 AM PST.

Guardians who dare to infiltrate the enemy’s hidden fortress will take on dire challenges to secure the bones of an Ahamkara, a wish-granting dragon that has seemingly gone extinct.

    Got my buried bloodline upon completion of the dungeon. No idea if it was random or not but; none of my fireteam members said anything about getting it. Also it seemed the loot from secret chests was limited ended up with some dupes

      Secret chest loot is limited to items that you have received from the dungeon before.

      Example: You’ve only gotten the sidearm, then the secret chests will only drop the sidearm.
