Destiny's House of Wolves expansion adds a challenging, exciting new arena mode called Prison of Elders — but that mode's loot distribution system is kind of confusing. If you don't have Treasure Keys, you can't crack open the big chest at the end, locking you out of new legendary gear and a chance for a new Exotic. Considering those Treasure Keys aren't guaranteed to drop in the Prison of Elders, that lockout is a really likely scenario.

Fortunately, there are a few ways to farm for Treasure Keys and plenty of gear to grab in the Prison of Elders without them. Check out the video above to see how the Prison of Elders loot system works, or the Overview posted below for more of our thoughts on Destiny's new expansion.
