So I bought the taken king at the end of 2015 (not sure exactly when) and I've only realised now that I was supposed to get a spark of light but I have never received one? I've been to the postmaster and it isn't there nor is it in my inventory. I have a level 40 hunter and I'm 99% sure that it's the first character I made and never deleted it. Where could it be?
As you know if you think about it the Spark is over rated ( a gimmick). Playing the game and doing the bounties will soon have you at lv 40 and you will: 1. The spark does not unlock perks in your sub-class playing the game will. 2. As you now know light level is more important so as you level up normally you will start to pick up the kit to help on your journey. Before you say anything I have never used my spark and refuse to use it and it is just taking up space in my vault.
You do have one deleted character. Very well could have been there. Either way, if you haven't had it by now, you won't be getting one.
