    So I guess some players are getting to LL280+. How?

    By creating multiple of the same class and transferring gear over to be able to complete weekly activities over and over again.

    One streamer has a LL287 character after playing for 61 of the last 72 hours.

    While kinda cool and congratulations on the ingenuity. I like sleep and food and bathing more than maxing my light level that fast.

    i mean what even kind of wannabe nerd are you if you do things like sleep and bathe

    Not a very good one I guess. But a clean one that's well rested and is friendly to my family and peers because I'm not a zombie fueled only by caffeine and junk food. I'll take that trade off.

    Except tonight. Let's stay up stupid late and kill some Cabal!

    Crap. I went and watched some PS4 vs Pro comparisons and now I really want a Pro. I already have a 4k TV and the trade in values are decent on my PS4. I might be able to get up to $200 if I trade in some games too.

    The difference isn't massive yet it's definitely noticeable. Whether that's worth $200 is debatable but I still want one.

    Dang I love seeing that "+Clan XP" notification in the top right, and knowing my fellow Arcadians are out there being awesome.

    I'm at 270 power and I've gotten plenty of sleep and done things outside, so I'm feeling pretty okay about that

    Looks like at a certain point strike blues cap out at 264, as an aside. Purple Engrams currently seem to cap at 265, along with care packages, and only "powerful rewards" seem to go higher so far. Not counting mods with 5 power on them.

    Also we already capped out weekly clan xp and hit level 2

    Yeah seems like the path to higher level is 265 then get mods for +5 for all slots to 270. Then hand in your powerful gear rewards then do exotic weapon quests.

    I'm at 269 with nightfall and clan xp left to do. I still need armor nods in two slots too. And I haven't done any exotic quests. Not sure where I'll end up but should be close to raid ready.

    Clan earned packages seem to be 270+ too. So folks should collect them until they are at 265

    the clan rewards from Hawthorne go over 265, seems to be the only care package that does.

    Anyone happen to know what happens if you do an Adventure for a Upgrade Point, when you've upgraded all of your subclasses fully?

    Does it just sit there forever, unable to be used, or does the game just turn it into something else?

    I think the Clan engrams are same limit as normal: Power is locked at time of acquisition, not decoding.

    I don't imagine that the game would allow you to continue to accrue upgrade points (and bug you with the number) once you have everything unlocked. But I'll let someone else confirm.

    my guess is it'd give you an bright engram or something along those lines... similar to the motes of light.

    They roll (at least from what I have seen) at a higher level than normal legendary engrams do. For instance a normal legendary engram for me currently rolls at 268. The one from the clan rewards rolled at 273 and gave me two items.

    Honestly I was surprised they just handed over exotic gear for new chars because what is stopping someone from making a char, getting the item, transfering it to a leveled character, bringing up to cap then destroying it for the rare shards?

    That's an absurdly silly means to accrue 5 Legendary shards.

    Oh yeah, there's a brief moment in the late game where you're instanced with other players again and it stuck me with someone from my "people you may know" friends of friends list from PSN. He's just some HS facebook friend so didn't friend up ever despite seeing him on that list, but I still thought that was pretty interesting.

  • KandenKanden Registered User regular
    But there is nothing stopping someone from say, creating a new character, then running straight to titan as fast as possible to get all 3 of the exotics in their collection

    Guys I'm sad they were right about too much content for the grind.

    I just discovered the glory of running around one planet doing patrols/events as a night stalker grabbing all chests while searching for the region chests.

    You get so many reputation coins and it's so chill. But alas the 265 cap has long since passed me by

    You should have exactly enough upgrade points from leveling and adventures to Max all three subclasses

    Take a look at the Io adventures, do any of them give you upgrade points?

    My old friends from Destiny 1 have returned, and with them the old clan. So for now I'm going to have to bow out of PA. That means there should be 1 spot on the Ps4 getting freed up.

    Tri-Optimum reminds you that there are only one-hundred-sixty-three shopping days until Christmas. Just 1 extra work cycle twice a week will give you the spending money you need to make this holiday a very special one.

    'clan xp' is when someone else in the clan has completed an activity contributing to your clans rank. 'personal clan xp' is your own contributions. everyone is capped at a max contribution of 5000 xp per week.

    The clan can level up! And the entire clan gets stuff for participating in stuff with the clan and doing things together etc etc. There's some reward for beating certain things with a group of clan members I believe. I dunno exactly what the stuff is yet but it has spots for rewards for Nightfall and Raids and stuff.

    And the clan is capped at 100k.

    Which we reached already (on PS4).

    Fortunately it doesn't stop you from earning personal XP for the Milestone.

    didn't realise it capped if you rank up within the week. does give an idea of how long the seasons will be though.
