Grind Heroic Public Events[ edit ] Next to Campaign missions, the best way to earn experience is from completing Public Events with the heroic modifier active. Not only is the XP reward significantly higher than it is from the standard event, but you also stand a much better chance of receiving more gear to boost your power level as well.
This modifier is triggered by performing specific actions during each Public Event - you can find all of the Heroic Event triggers we know of so far here. You can also find planetary materials lying around the open world.
Turn in these tokens and materials to the NPC on the world you are on to gain reputation with them. Quests are marked as a blue crown on your map. These quests are the first step in Exotic Weapon Quests. These Exotic rewards will drop at a Power level of about points higher than your highest possible Power level so it is recommended to complete these when you're around Power level.
Grind Vanguard Strikes[ edit ] A solid way of obtaining gear and reputation tokens is grinding the Vanguard Strike Playlist. These tokens can be given to Commander Zavala for a chance at his loot.
Strikes reward loot with gear around your power level and sometimes even exotic engrams. Run the Nightfall[ edit ] Once you reach around Power level you can try your hand at the Nightfall strike you must complete two strikes and talk to Zavala to gain access to the Nightfall.
The Nightfall is a heavily modified strike that rewards very powerful loot. Communication and teamwork is vital in completing this activity especially at a lower Power level. You receive one Crucible token per match which you can use to increase your standing with Lord Shaxx to gain more powerful loot. The player's Guardian and their Ghost respond by assisting the Vanguard in assaulting the Red Legion command ship.
As they confront the Red Legion's commander, Dominus Ghaul, his forces attach a device to the Traveler and begin draining it of the Light, the power used by the Guardians. The Guardian loses their powers and is nearly killed by Ghaul.

Waking two days after the attack, the Guardian locates their Ghost. The Guardian follows a vision to encounter a shard of the Traveler hidden in a forest within the EDZ. Ghost interfaces with the shard and both its and the Guardian's Light are restored. After restoring long range communications, Hawthorne intercepts a distress call from Commander Zavala, urging surviving Guardians to travel to Saturn 's moon Titan and assist in mounting a counter-offensive.
Against Hawthorne's objections, the Guardian travels to Titan, which has been overrun by the Hive. With assistance from Deputy Commander Sloane, they learn that the Red Legion was dispatched to the Milky Way in response to a distress call sent during the Taken War two years prior, and that Ghaul possesses a superweapon known as the Almighty, a space station capable of destroying stars.
Resistance to Cabal rule has resulted in entire star systems being destroyed. The intelligence also reveals that the Almighty is positioned near the Sun, breaking up the planet Mercury as fuel. During this time, it is shown that Ghaul, aided by his mentor, the Consul, overthrew Emperor Calus and took control of the Cabal, and has been studying the Traveler in order to learn how to use the Light and legitimize himself as Emperor.
The Guardian locates Cayde-6 on the centaur planet Nessuswhich has almost been completely transformed by the Vex. With the aid of Failsafe, an AI from the crashed starship Exodus Black, the Guardian frees Cayde from a Vex portal loop, and claims a teleporter for use in taking back the City. Cayde directs the Guardian to find Ikora on the Jovian moon of Iowhere she had gone to find answers about the Traveler.
Afterwards, the Vanguard reunites at the Farm and conclude that the only way to retake the Last City and save the Traveler is to shut down the Almighty first, eliminating the possibility of it destroying the Sun.
The Guardian boards the Almighty and destroys the weapon, signaling Zavala to begin the counterattack. As the Vanguard begins the assault, the Consul admonishes Ghaul for his obsession with the Traveler, and urges him to take the Light; Ghaul is reluctant until the Consul kills the Speaker, whom Ghaul had captured and tortured to try and learn more about the Traveler.
Ghaul then proclaims that he will take the Light, and strangles the Consul in a fit of rage. The Guardian returns to Earth to assist in the counterattack and infiltrates Ghaul's command ship alone to save the Traveler. Ghaul forcibly takes the Light, corrupting it, and uses its power against the Guardian, but the Guardian is successful in defeating Ghaul.
Ghaul reemerges as a massive ethereal figure who then speaks to the Traveler directly. In doing so, the Traveler wakes from its long sleep, destroying the device that was harvesting its power and killing Ghaul. It sends a massive shockwave, restoring the Light and decimating the Red Legion's forces.
The game ends with a posthumous voiceover from the Speaker, reminding all that the Light can never be stopped. The Guardian and Ghost convene with Zavala, Ikora, Cayde, and Hawthorne at an undamaged portion of the Tower, with the Vanguard returning to their old duties and Hawthorne assuming a new post there.Xbox One Cheaper Than PS4 & Destiny Light Level Cap Reached! - GS Daily News
In a post-credits scene, the shockwave sent by the Traveler is shown reaching the entire system. The wave of Light extends beyond the Solar System and spreads beyond the Milky Way, before panning across a fleet of dark, unknown ships sitting some distance away in extragalactic space.
Following Ghaul's defeat, a massive Cabal ship called the Leviathan appears in orbit of Nessus, under the control of the exiled Emperor Calus. Calus invites Guardians to complete a series of challenges before reaching his throne.
A fireteam of Guardians complete his challenges before facing Calus himself; however, after overcoming his strange powers and defeating him, they discover that they were fighting a mechanical doppelganger. The real Calus speaks through the machine, claiming that what they know is a lie and that there is a truth beyond what the Speaker had told them. Development A sequel to Destiny was first mentioned in Novembertwo months after the original released, by Activision chief executive officer Eric Hirshberg, where he said "Work has also begun on future expansion packs as well as on our next full game release".
Andromedajoined Bungie. The cornerstone of that is a great cinematic story that's been a real focus with a great cast of memorable, relatable characters, coupled with some very nice ways to make the game more accessible to a casual player. Without losing anything that our core players love, we've made it more accessible to someone who just wants to have a great, more casual first-person action experience.
Characters and progression did carry over into Destiny's expansions, but for the sequel, only players' characters' physical appearance carried over if they had reached level 20 and completed the Black Garden quest in the original. In regards to why progression and items did not carry over, Bungie said "We believe this is the best path forward. It allows us to introduce the major advancements and improvements that all of us expect from a sequel, ensuring it will be the best game we can create, unencumbered by the past.
Players' characters, progression, and items are still accessible in the original Destiny, which will continue to remain online. The poster showed that just like the original, Destiny 2 would have PlayStation exclusive content. The teaser showed the Tower under attack by the Cabal, one of the enemy races from the original game. PlayStation 's YouTube channel showed a slightly extended teaser, officially confirming that there would be timed exclusive content for PlayStation 4, and it would last until at least fall The Cabal are being led by Ghaul, the commander of the Red Legion.
The trailers confirmed that Lance ReddickNathan Fillionand Gina Torres would be reprising their roles as the class Vanguards, respectively. Noseworthy went on to say, "I think it's pretty unrealistic given we're an online-only game, right? It's incredible, I love the console, but in terms of where it's at, I don't want to leave anyone with the possibility of like, 'it's a thing we'll consider, maybe next year.
Lead engineer Matt Segur explained, "Every activity in Destiny 2 is hosted by one of our servers. That means [players] will never again suffer a host migration during [a] Raid attempt or Trials match. This differs from Destiny 1, where these hosting duties were performed by player consoles and only script and mission logic ran in the data center. For Destiny 2, Bungie shifted their focus to in-game storytelling, which was something the original was criticized for lacking.
To detail the lore of the universe in Destiny 2, there are many artifacts around the maps that can be scanned by Ghost, who will give details and backstory. Exotic gear and some legendary gear also have a lore tab.
It showed that Bungie did focus more on the story for the sequel than the original, as Bungie was "attempting to go in-depth into the universe and the motivations of the characters. Early access for pre-order customers began on PS4 on July 18 followed by Xbox One on July 19; non-pre-order customers received access beginning July The console beta concluded on July 25, after a 2-day extension.
The beta for the PC began on August 29 and concluded on August Like the original, there is an Expansion Passwhich grants access to the first two expansions of Destiny 2. The Digital Deluxe Edition includes all of the premium digital content. Destiny 2 post-release content and Destiny 2: Forsaken Prior to the console release, Bungie said that they had already began working on post-release content.
And make sure your Guardian meets the requirements to advance. Make Sure Your Guardian is Level 30 The sudden flood of incompleted Quests, Challenges, and Waypoint markers is going to be a bit jarring that's what happens when you take a few months offand finding out that buying the extra content doesn't mean you can play it right away is any fun. Forsaken If your chosen Guardian is a little short of that benchmark, some good old fashioned grinding is what's called for in the meantime.
And a Level 28 or 29 Guardian should make quick work of most challenges in the accessible game world. The developers want players to access the new content, so it shouldn't take too long to make up the difference Public Events in the EDZ and Regional Chests along the Forgotten Shore are always plentiful.
There will be plenty of time to grind for the additional materials needed to infuse higher-level gear, but for now, that Level 30 mark is the finish line.
