Menagerie recipes and rune combinations - Destiny 2

Learn all the Menagerie recipes for each of the weapon and armor pieces added with the new activity in Season of Opulence in Destiny 2.


Unlocking the new Menagerie-exclusive weapons and armor included in Season of Opulence requires knowing several Menagerie recipes. Each of these recipes utilizes runes and the Chalice of Opulence to create a specific weapon or piece of armor. These rune combinations can be used to unlock the 45+ activity-specific items in Destiny 2.

Menagerie recipes

Each Menagerie recipe uses a set of runes slotted into Rune Slot 1 and Rune Slot 2 in the Chalice of Opulence. These two rune slots are solely responsible for what weapon you receive or what piece of armor you get. The third rune slot dictates what Masterwork the weapon or armor piece receives.

Below are two tables, designed by windzer408, that show a simplified look at all available Menagerie recipes. These tables only show the first two runes that are required for the desired weapon or armor outcome, they do not include the Masterwork option.

Menagerie recipes armor

To read these tables, start by finding the item you wish to create. Using the Austringer as an example, look to the top row to see what rune must be in the first slot, in this instance it would be a Rune of Desire. Next, look to the left column to see what must be placed in the second slot, in this example it would be any of the red runes.

At this point, you can run through the Menagerie and you will receive the specified item. However, you can also put a rune into the third slot to give the item a Masterwork perk. Hover over each of the runes to see what type of effect it will give. For weapons, these effects are handling, range, reload, and stability. For armor, the effects allow for greater resistance against elemental attacks.

For a complete list of every single item with all potential Masterwork options, check out this incredibly detailed Google Sheet by JpDeathBlade. There are four pages showing all possible combinations, of which there are over 600.

For the most part, the simplified Menagerie recipe table by windzer408 should suffice. It clearly shows the basic runes that must be used to acquire all armor and weapons. If you are looking for extremely specific Masterworks, then JpDeathBlade’s rune combination sheet is the way to go.
