Someone please help me with some advice on how to get my power level up. I'm tired of doing Vanguard Strikes and don't really feel like fulfilling random bounties. I am trying to do raids like the VOG and Weekly nightfall. I was really good on D1 and I only played a little of Destiny 2 on my PS4. But on my PS5 that I just got, I decided to play Destiny 2 again! PLEASE HELP!!!
The way the Light Level system currently works is this: Any item that drops will have a higher Light Level than your current overall LL until you hit the current Soft Cap (the Soft Cap for the Season 15 is 1270). As you’re currently below the Soft Cap, just play any activity that you realistically can and you will randomly receive upgraded gear. Once your overall LL reaches 1270, you will only be able to get gear with higher Light Levels from activities that drop Powerful or Pinnacle gear (they will be listed as such once you reach the Soft Cap) and from Prime Engrams (these will drop from slain enemies as random [i]bright[/i] purple engrams and you’ll know when they can drop for you as you’ll see a visible buff in your equipment screen). Once you reach the Hard Cap (which is currently 1320 for Season 15) you will need to rely on Pinnacle drops to increase your overall Light Level to the current Pinnacle Cap of 1330. Gear will not drop at Light Levels beyond the current Pinnacle Cap. —— Aside from all this there is the level of your Seasonal Artifact (which adds to your overall Light Level regardless of your gear) which can be increased by simply gaining experience. This is very slow and should be viewed as a small bonus rather than your primary method of gaining levels (which is through gear drops). (΄◉◞౪◟◉｀)
