EVERY single expansion has marked in increase in our power. Regardless of Light and Level being split, *LEVEL* contributes a far greater disturbance in power, especially against Ultras and Bosses.
I was hoping that our light level would be boosted to 44, with the Raid being 45, and subsequent end game being inflated by Light Level.
Why would you ruin the grind magic of Year 3 by not raising the level cap? Why pick 40 as the exclusive number to stop at? Why even have a split system at all then? Will there ever be a new tier of weapon? AKA must be level 44 to equip? Or 400+ Light?
I'm just thinking about the FEELING of our guardians. Many of you have already lost your Tier 12 or Tier 11 status, the same thing happened in Taken King. At least then we still had a Level Cap Increase. I don't know. I sense that the new content WILL NOT be challenging AT ALL.
Thus the reason for artificially inflating the level cap instead of giving us HARD LEVELS to grind. Content would be too easy otherwise, and this is unacceptable. I don't know about anyone else, but this seems like a very obvious oversight.
