Gathering Tips

  • Deimos, Saturn, Neptune and Eris Survivals and Defense missions may be the best way to get Nano Spores quickly. Usually one can get 3,000 every 5 minutes or waves, doubled if you have NekrosIcon272.png Nekros with you. These mission types can also be great places to farm Plastids from Saturn and Ferrite from Neptune.
    • Alternatively, a good place where to farm them is the Cambion Drift, along with the unique resources of landscape
