If you are one of the jack wagons out there saying "derp just don't infuse until you reach max light derp" you are just not getting it. That isn't a solution or a fun way to play. It is the equivalent of shrugging at a stupid idea and saying "oh well what can ya do?" Also, just as dumb is the "infusion cores are easy to get" No, they aren't. Getting cores on a regular basis is multi-step torture: Do dumb activities on a lonely planet for ghosts. Get a dumb bounty and sit on a planet doing nothing but watching for an HVT to pop up. Hope to get a shot at at it. The bounties should be obtainable with planetary materials or glimmer. And the bounties should be in game activities or events.
Hey all, Thank you for your feedback on Enhancement Cores and infusion. I will continue to pass this along to the team. The goal of this currency is to give players meaningful decisions in carrying forward their gear, and also fully masterworking it. At this time, there are no plans to remove Enhancement Cores from infusion, but I can check with the team to see if there are plans for further tuning of acquisition paths or costs. As it stands, here are the current sources of this currency: • Spider Wanted Bounties • Direct Purchase from The Spider • Scrapper Bounties • Dismantling Legendary Items at specific Masterwork tiers • Reaching the Legend rank in Crucible Valor • Completing the Clan Weekly Challenge after reaching Rank 4
