What is the fastest/easiest way to get Forgotten Souls?

Right now I have quite a few legendary materials, but not a single Forgotten Soul, so I can't craft any of these level 70 legendaries.

I've found that doing rifts with a good party is the fastest way. The rift guardian has a pretty high chance of dropping a soul and legendary drops are boosted while in rifts. There is no other good way really of getting souls other than rifts.

An even faster way now is to join the Rift it Forward community (assuming you have enough keystones to open rifts) to quickly farm Rift Guardians as well as to gain blood shards for gambling purposes.

With this community, you can gain hundreds of souls very quickly.

I'd add that if you're really desperate for souls, gambling with Kadala for any 5-shard item (since that is the lowest cost) has a chance of generating a legendary for you. Like any legendary, it will often be trash and thus salvageable for a Forgotten Soul. And since the best way of getting shards for gambling is doing rifts, it ties right back into rifting being the best option. –  Sterno Apr 17 at 13:47
    
Agreed, Rift it Forward is awesome to fast farm forgotten soul. I saw many people complaining about it on the forum, saying it was cheating but as long as blizzard allows it, go for it :D –  WizLiz Jun 12 at 16:04

There are two ways for getting Forgotten Souls :

  • Doing rifts : The rift guardian has a high chance of droping a Forgotten Soul. Pick the higher Torment level in which you can complete the rift quickly (10 min max). Also Farming in party will help you farm faster and in higher Torment resulting in more Forgotten souls.
  • Salvaging unwanted legendaries (my trick to get "trash legendaries" is to really wish for something good, then the next 50 legendaries are going to be worthless)

I usually clear T1 rift and salvage every legendaries that is not usefull for my character. I currently have more than 200 unused Forgotten Souls. Plus the bloodshard you get from the rift guardian allow you to gamble at Kadala significantly increasing your legendary "drop" rate.

+1 for sharing "my trick..." b/c I totally agree on that being the fastest way to get Forgotten Souls :-) –  DiabloMonkey Apr 17 at 13:23
    
Rifts are really the best method, since you get 100% increased chance of finding legendaries aswell, giving you more to salvage. –  Parrotmaster Apr 18 at 9:13
    
Lol totally agree with that trick. Works for pretty much anything you really really want. –  kickpuncher11 May 16 at 13:47

@z' apparently it requires a score of stricly more than 10 for your answer AND/OR strictly more than the double for mine :D –  WizLiz Jun 18 at 8:47
