grind public events (primarily Heroic Events), cayde's treasure maps, loot chests, lost sectors, and patrols to build up tokens and maybe earn Legendary/Exotic Engrams along the way. You should be doing that until you reach the 270s. The LL for Rares will always be lower than your LL.

When you reach the 270s, do the milestones and world quests (the Blue Crown on the worlds) so you can get Powerful Engrams that are near or above your Light Level so you can break the 270 threshold and move onto 280 (so you can craft mods).


Thanks! Played a little last night and did some challenges and public events. I noticed it was taking forever to level up light level. I know Bungie said that item level drops are based on your gear level in your inventory so I wouldn't always put on my highest level weapons. Once I started putting on my highest gear my LL increases went way faster. Took me about a third of the time to go from 215-235 than it took me to go from 202-215. So I'm not convinced that drops at these levels are based on your highest LL in your inventory.

Definitely what you want to do, especially when you need to go get your powerful engrams from completing the milestones.

 

When you reach the 270s, this is must in order to break the 280 threshold and earn the ability to make Legendary Mods ( which you will need to level your light further)

Currently stuck at 278. :) Blues and purples are dropping at 272. Flashpoint and Call to Arms should push me over the edge next week if nothing else.

Random question concerning clan engrams. Been playing Destiny 2 VERY casually and haven't even hit level 20 with my first character yet. I know clan xp and such resets Tuesday, but if Hawthorne has engrams for the clan, do I need to claim them before Tuesday or can I get them whenever?


I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. https://go.twitch.tv/jess_stryker

Yes, that.

I believe they reset every week.

 

I blew through the campaign on my Warlock last night and thanks to weapons from my Titan I was instantly at 274 when I hit level 20.  So strange having high legendary/exotic weapons and blue armor though.   But I fixed that mostly via faction rep.  Now, I guess, I should turn in the powerful ones?

 

Anyway, need to do the Nightfall with my Warlock now if anyone is up for that.

LL @ 263. Haven't completed nightfall. Ran all the adventures & quests on Titan. Considering some of the comments on here maybe I should hold up on quests until I hit 270.

Anyone know if Ikora's complete 5 challanges resets daily?

Should get on the Nightfall. It should be easier than last week's.

 

Ikora's quest resets daily.

Hawthorne resets weekly so you might as well redeem them. I'm not sure if you can "save" her engrams. I personally wouldn't want to risk it and lose her engrams. since they actually give you drops that are equal or above your LL.

 

Yes io, you should. I'm sure you're aware, but put on your highest lvl gear before redeeming the engram so you can get the most LL out of it

I got an email from Twitter (I don't even use it) that showed CheapyD sharing the clan name not that long ago.  Is that why we filled up so quick?

Everything I've read says it scales to what you possible level is with all the gear you have and that you don't actually have to wear it.  I still do out of habit, but I thought they "fixed" that.

 

I thought I was supposed to save stuff for later though.  It gets confusing ;).

I know they fixed it when an Engram drops but I"m not sure about the Milestone Drops since you actually don't get it until you go to the vendor to redeem per se.

238*

 

Finally finished the campaign.

 

Felt kinda newbish after destroying a legendary mod attached to an exotic armor piece. Was under the impression gear had multiple slots for mods...so I said, let me add this extra blue mod to my arm guards. As I saw the red progress bar fill up saw the purple +5 mode vanish before my eyes and suddenly the realization of what I had just done sank in. Kinda felt like being in one of those Taken bubbles and your vision goes blurry while you take damage.

 

There was no warning "Are you sure?!" nadda...just saved the world and they didn't send me a memo about that. hahaha.

 

 

 

On a lighter note, purples and yellows seem to be dropping more often after that so maybe it was a sacrifice to the RNG's of old & new. So I suspect I'll hit the first soft cap before week's ends.

 

 

I may need help beating the Nightfall before reset tomorrow.

Youll be rolling in Legendaries more than you think. Exotics are still scarce

It was the gunslinger arm guards so it takes the sting out of it slightly. Plus the way the clan system has been implemented and our numbers/activity...I'm not concerned anymore.

I didn't even see that. he even comments that he didn't set it up. Pretty funny.

I finally beat the campaign this weekend. Still tooling around. Tried the crucible for the first time and not a fan. Still need to try strikes. I think I am still only 260. I don't understand why people keep calling the last location the tower. Looks more like you're on a wall...

So one way to power level make 3 characters and redo the exotic quests every time they will drop higher as u just keep putitng ur best guns on ur new character and us vendor coins to get them gear and then do the exotic quests.

 

my 3 midas were 260  - 280 - 295

Man o War is a Legendary not an Exotic.

What Im trying yo say is that Man o War doesnt scale to your LL. The cap is 275

I already knew that you need to equip your best equipment to get better drops. Ive been telling that to everyone who asks a question like that

So damn I forgot how RNG in this game can be a bitch.  I got through the story on my second character pretty quick and was instantly 274 with the guns from my other guy.  Then I went and turned in some faction stuff to replace my blue armor with legendaries.  Did the Nightfall last night (thanks Gotdott) and got some sweet 284 gauntlets.  So that put me right at 280.  Perfect! I can now make legendary mods.  I quickly boosted all but my leg armor, which, for some reason, I didn't have enough blues to create.  I used all my glimmer buying more blues - nothing.  I exchanged for several legendary mods that I then broke down so I could make new random ones.  No luck.  I just can't get a stupid leg armor mod.

 

I wanted to get that extra 5 Power before turning in the Nightfall quest to Zavala and getting my clan rewards.  Eventually I gave up.  I'll grind a bit more tonight for glimmer and give it one more shot before reset.

 

I also wasn't aware your mod inventory slots are SHARED across characters!  It isn't like that for anything else, is it?  Well, maybe the shaders, but with their consumable nature I haven't paid much attention to them.  Are consumables (tokens and such) shared too?  I just assumed it was like D1 and everything in my inventory was specific to the character. But then the app wouldn't let me transfer mods from one character to another - well, OK, I thought, that is annoying so I'll have to switch characters, fly in to the Tower, and manually put them into the Vault.  But then when I switched back and transferred them I still only had a couple of each.  Odd, so I did this about 3 times before I realized I was putting the same 2 blue mods into the Vault and pulling them out over and over.  I originally thought each character had 2 of each so if I combined them I'd have enough to make a legendary (since you need 3).   D'oh!

Really stupid question but where do you buy the blue mods? I see at 280 you can start trading the blue mods for the purple ones do the blue one you can purchase not show up till than? I'm 279 right now but could make 280 if I purple mod my 280 GL to 285.

I believe ALL consumables are shared between your characters.  I recommend an inventory manager app or browser extension. :)

Well if they really are all shared then there's no need for a manager app!

 

So yeah then I made another mistake.  I thought my new Warlock had a ton of gunsmith materials and turned them all in for weapons just trying to get mods that way too (got a lot - but no leg ones of course).  I guess I used my entire pool from both characters.  Oh well...

 

I kind of feel like this is an odd design choice as the other half of your inventory is not shared.  And because this is an out-of-nowhere change from the way it was in D1.  It is especially odd since shaders are consumable - would be nice to be able to keep different ones on different characters.
