Pinnacle question

Can someone explain to me how exactly pinnacles work? Most articles stuff I find from a google search about anything for this game is usually 1-2 years old so I gave up on that route. The way it's been explained to me is Pinnacles drop at 2 power levels above your current base power level. Yet most pinnacles I get are only 1 power level above (every once in a while I do get one at 2 levels above), and the last pinnacle I got was at my current power level so I didnt actually get an upgrade. I'm feeling like it's more random than anything but I'm interested to know if there is an actual rhyme or reason to the levels of the drops. Thanks in advance to anyone who can fill me in on this.

    Hi there. There are two levels of Pinnacle rewards that come from different sources. Like all other engrams, the rewards you get from Pinnacles are random and you are likely to obtain some duplicates. [b]+1 Pinnacle activities:[/b] • Weekly Vanguard Strikes • Weekly Crucible Core Playlist • Weekly Gambit Challenge • Clan Weekly Reward [b]+2 Pinnacle activities:[/b] • Means to an End quest • Garden of Salvation • Nightfall The Ordeal 100k score • Nightmare Master Hunt • Prophecy dungeon • Pit of Heresy dungeon • Iron Banner bounties • Trials of Osiris The level a Pinnacle drops at is determined by your overall base power level (artifact bonus excluded) and not on the highest level item in the slot it drops for. For example, if your highest level item is a helmet at 1054 but your overall combined power is 1052 because the rest of your gear is lower, getting another helmet from a pinnacle reward would be at either +1 or +2 of 1052, not your current helmet.

    • Okay just checked engrams and saw the pinnacle was an engram and not a loot drop, and is at the 2 levels above. Though I am still interested to know what decides wether its 2 or 1 level above as I've had pinnacles drop at both.
