I have a question, since I didn't have my Xbox One until after the Destiny beta. How does gear scale in Destiny? Is it like classic MMO style, where gear gets better like in World of Warcraft? Or just cosmetic/playstyle, like Guild Wars2 / Defiance?
Its stat boosting gear like WoW. Most of the gear in the beta was just +armorgreen items had another stat like int or str, Some of it gives special abilities at the high end. Once you reach level 20 the only way to level is through a gear stat called light You can make some aesthetic choices with dye kits called shaders but I didnt see anything like WoWs transmogrification system
I would say this video on attack vs impact gives a good understanding on gear scaling and whats really important when deciding gear.
