I would love it if exotics had at least a chance to drop above your light level after you've passed 950. They wouldn't have to be +2 like the buffed pinnacle rewards but anything would be great. It makes that yellow drop much more valuable and exciting especially for anyone who can't usually get other pinnacle drops for any reason. It could even just be on exotic weapons since they don't have any random stats to farm for like the armor does.
Thanks for the feedback. We've just introduced the +2 pinnacle change, so we'll be watching how those changes impact the power chase over the remainder of the season. As for how you feel when an exotic drops, I've sent over the feedback and noted that they can sometimes feel underwhelming due to the lack of pinnacle power.
