You’ve probably run a lot of the Sever mission in Destiny 2 this season already. You might have noticed, in one of two of those runs, an enemy popping up during the final boss encounter called the Avaricious Treasurer. Like the Treasurer enemies that wander around the Derelict Leviathan, it’s a Cabal warrior with a light glow to it. But the rewards from taking out the Avaricious Treasurer are much better — assuming you have a particular upgrade for the Crown of Sorrow.
The second upgrade on the “Channeling” track of the Crown of Sorrow is called “Treasurer Bonus Reward.” When you’ve unlocked it, you’ll receive additional rewards the first time each week that you defeat an Avaricious Treasurer. What do “additional rewards” entail? Well, stacks of Opulent Umbral Energy, for the most part, but you can also receive Opulent Keys. If you’re looking to craft the seasonal gear or just get more drops of it, then both of these are going to be a big help.
As for finding the Avaricious Treasurer, he’ll always be in the room where you fight the final boss of the Sever mission. In encounters with damage phases, he’ll usually pop up after the first one ends. Since these encounters aren’t timed and aren’t darkness zones, feel free to comb the area for this special little guy to ensure that you take him out before the boss. As someone who finds myself perpetually running low on Opulent Umbral Energy, this is going to be a big help for me, and hopefully it will be for you too.
