Destiny 2: Beyond Light Progression Changes
Community Manager Cozmo detailed the upcoming changes in a news update on the official Destiny 2 site.
"The start of any new Destiny expansion begins with a Power climb as you experience the campaign and play through the story missions. After finishing that up and completing some additional quests and activities, you’re usually around what we call the “Soft Cap” and will need to start earning Powerful rewards to continue to increase Power so you can tackle some of the more aspirational activities in the endgame. After you reach the “Hard Cap” then there is an additional 10 Power you can earn through earning pinnacle rewards if you choose to hit the “Pinnacle Cap.”
The new caps are segmented as such:
- Soft Cap: 1,200
- Hard Cap: 1,250
- Pinnacle Cap: 1,260
Logging into Beyond Light for the first time will set your gear to 1,050 Power if they're under. Any gear that's higher will be unchanged.
There will also be some changes to how Powerful rewards will be distributed. In addition to the normal weekly Powerful reward sources, you'll be able to get Powerful rewards from strikes, Gambit, Crucible, and Seasonal drops until you reach the Hard Cap.
Destiny 2 launches Nov. 10 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Stadia.
