Bungie has posted another installment of its weekly Destiny 2 blog . This time the creators of the shooter told how the Guardian leveling system will change with the release of the Beyond the World expansion.
What will change:
- Strength soft cap – 1200, hard cap – 1250 and pinnacle cap (maximum) – 1260; at the start of the season, all players will be “adjusted” to a strength level of 1050, that is, all gear and weapons will be increased, players with a higher level will not be touched
- Now you can get powerful engrams for leveling your character in any activity – Strikes, Gambit, Crucible and items that drop out in the game world; it will be possible to swing in this way up to a strength level of 1250 units
- You will no longer be able to pump with tokens – clothes from this source will be 20 power points lower than yours; loot obtained from the collection will be locked at around 1050 strength
- Planetary content from locations that are removed from Destiny 2 can be spent until the end of next season; you won’t be able to get them until the planet is returned again
- Faction tokens and other junk items will be removed from inventory (goodbye, ramen coupon)
- Full changes to the system of contracts with a set of challenges tied to the account will be introduced only in the 13th season
- The Season Pass (Battle Pass) will remain the same, only now there will be new weapons and armor, as well as more bright dust: 7500 for the free version of the pass + 3000 for the paid version; weekly bounties will give 100 more dust
- The Spider will no longer sell legendary shards – instead, an upgrading prism, for a unit of which you will have to pay 400 shards; Upgrading cores can now be bought in an amount of 5 pieces per day, but at a fixed price of 30 shards for each core
- All Legendary and Exotic Sparrows will now have an Instant Call Mod installed
- Bright Engrams with cosmetics will contain items from previous seasons according to the scheme “from 1st season to -3 from the current one”, that is, cosmetics from 1-9 seasons will drop in the 12th season, and from 1-10 seasons in the 13th
Also on a separate stream , Destiny 2 Development Lead Luke Smith said that to transmog the armor, you don’t need to keep it in storage – it’s enough to have it in the collection. The transmog is planned for Season 13. Smith added that new subclasses of Dark are likely to appear in future expansions, and Beyond Light is somewhere between Forsaken and Shadowkeep in size.
The release of Destiny 2: “Beyond the Light” will take place on November 10 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. In December, the loot-shooter will reach the nextgen.
