You can also earn an additional 10 Orbs by completing Terra Patrols with your Daily Patrol Bonus Reward active. This will, of course, grant you 10 Orbs of whatever Patrol you completed, so if you need Blaze Orbs, or Shock Orbs, or any other type of Orb, you can also complete those particular Patrols to earn some extras.
Of course, another great way to get Terra Orbs is to break off different body parts from Terra Behemoths like the Kharabak, Koshai, and the Skarn. These are the three primary Terra Behemoths that you can fight in Dauntless, and they all three appear in Terra Patrols when you complete them. Terra Patrols rate from a Threat level of 3 up to 6.
