Destiny 2 Spine of Keres Imperial Treasure location
The Spine of Keres Imperial Treasure chest is found across the last bridge behind the Oracle temple.

Use the Divalian Mists fast travel point to load in to the Dreaming City. From here, you will want to angle toward Rheasilvia as opposed to The Strand. Instead of going right across the field, look to the left to spot a blue crystal cave and then go through it. Follow the path around, jumping across the gaps where necessary, and you will arrive in the Spine of Keres.

From here, you will need to follow the path into the Oracle temple in order to reach the lower section of this area. You should eventually reach an open section at the end of the last bridge before a series of rocky formations. The Imperial Chest is on this final area, tucked to the right behind some rocks.

Opening this Imperial Treasure chest should reward a Triumph if it’s the first time you’re opening it. You will also receive some Imperials, a rune or two, as well as the guaranteed powerful gear. In the event you need more Imperials, consider completing the Menagerie Triumphs, as each of them rewards 500 Imperials.
