Destiny has come a long way from the loot cave. Well, not a long way, but the game certainly has changed and, as such, the best ways to farm for specific items has changed. In fact, the type of items you're probably now farming for has changed. YouTuber nJoi has recognised this and put together a really nice set of videos detailing the best routes for materials like Spinmetal, Spirit Bloom and all the type of loot you need to upgrade your legendary gear. This is good stuff.
The best part of these videos? They don't have terrible music playing over them, they don't feature a super annoying 'extreme' host -- this is just pure and simple advice for folks attempting to max out their gear.
