Silver is the most common resource in RAID: Shadow Legends but is at the same time one of the most important.
You need silver for several purposes in the game, including summoning and upgrading champions.
Upgrading artifacts will, however, be the largest silver expenditure for you, as upgrading a single artifact to level 16 can cost several million silver.
There are many ways to obtain silver in the game, but some are faster and more energy-effective than others.
The fastest and most efficient way to farm silver in RAID: Shadow Legends is to farm the dungeon, Spider’s Den, and sell the accessories dropped by the Spider boss.
The higher the stage you can complete in the Spider’s Den, the more silver you’ll get as a reward, and the more silver you can sell the dropped accessories for – more information on this and alternative silver farming methods below.

Fastest way to farm silver
Silver is awarded for most activities in the game, including battles, missions, and quests.
At the start of the game, you probably won’t be in need of silver, but as soon as you need to start upgrading your artifacts a lot, silver quickly becomes scarce.
The most energy-efficient silver farming method in RAID: Shadow Legends is to battle the spider boss located in the dungeon, Spider’s Den, over and over.
You will get both silver directly as a reward from defeating the spider boss, but you’ll also occasionally get accessories, which sell for a considerable amount of silver.
The higher the stage you can defeat in the Spider’s Den, the more silver you’ll get as a reward and the better the accessory drops will be, which also sell for more silver the better they are.
Technically, farming the Spider’s Den might not be the fastest way to farm silver for you if you don’t have a strong team against the spider boss.
However, farming the Spider’s Den is the most energy-efficient silver farming method in almost any case.
Therefore, it’s also recommended that you build a spider-farming team to take maximize the number of resources you can farm with your energy.
Other great silver farming alternatives in the game include farming the dragon boss in the dungeon, Dragon’s Lair, as well as the fire knight boss in the dungeon, Fire Knight’s Castle.
Again, the higher the stage you can beat in both of these dungeons, the more silver you can expect to earn per energy spent.
If you want to farm XP as well as silver, then your best option is to farm stage 3 in chapter 12 on the Brutal difficulty in the Campaign.
You will get the most silver as well as a great amount of XP from this stage.
Again, the silver will come from both direct rewards and from selling the shields that drop from the stage.
Early game silver farming
At the beginning of the game, you probably won’t be able to farm any of the dungeons listed above efficiently, which means it won’t be the fastest way for you to farm silver.
Furthermore, depending on how early in the game you are, it won’t be the most efficient way to farm silver in terms of energy usage either.
Lastly, if you haven’t played the game for a while, you definitely won’t be able to farm stage 3 chapter 12 on Brutal difficulty yet.
Instead, if you’re at an early point in RAID: Shadow Legends and need to farm silver, check out both the quests and missions tabs located at the bottom of the screen in the City.
Many of these quests and missions offer a decent amount of silver for not much work or energy expenditure.
Some of the missions and quests ask you to complete tasks that help you progress in the game, which then is a nice silver bonus on top of tasks you’d have to do either way.
Even though you probably can’t fight stage 3 chapter 12 on Brutal difficulty yet in the Campaign, you can try the same stage on either Normal or Hard difficulty, as it’ll likely still be the stage in the Campaign that’ll yield you the most silver per energy spent.
To make sure you spend your resources efficiently, we recommend trying to run the same stage or dungeon around 5-10 times, make sure to do the same number of runs on each stage or dungeon, and then see what works the best for you.
Once you’ve made it to a later point in the game, then you can start using the methods listed and explained in the previous paragraph of this guide.
That’s the fastest and most efficient way to farm silver in RAID: Shadow Legends!
