Destiny 2 Menagerie Recipes Guide: The Basics

If you're unfamiliar with Menagerie recipes, then let us give you a crash course. Essentially, these recipes depend on you being familiar with using runes in the Chalice of Opulence. The runes you can get are separated by color, and each recipe uses 3. The first two will determine what kind of weapon or armor you get, while the third will inform the element or Masterwork that the item is governed by. Here are the different color categories of runes:

  • Blue - Pleasure, Excess, Wealth
  • Green - War, Desire, Pride
  • Purple - Joy, Beast, Jubilation
  • Red - Cunning, Gluttony, Ambition
