so...basically don't do any story stuff in order to avoid milestones and just grind public events until you are at 265?

I'm a 20/205 or so and just figured out that I could turn in tokens for purple gear, which I immediately did because I was THIRSTY for purple weapons, have had exactly zero purple drops from hours of grinding. But I'm sure I will level past all of my cool new purple stuff in the next hour of gameplay :cry:

so - can you do milestones and just not collect the rewards until your light is up high? Or is the level of the reward based on where your light is at when you get it?

I hope your method is right because it means I can continue with the story, sit on a stash of rewards, and not worry about light levels

yeah, they're all hand ins so its fine to complete the tasks. the engram rewards' level scales up until you collect ~ hence why i've also held off from picking the exotic from the end of the campaign until i hit 250-265

Finally get a day off so I can actually play the game and there's 4 hours of downtime for maintenance (and they ALWAYS go over the announced time) :(

Twice last night, I had almost finished longer quest missions, and I got disconnected from the servers, cancelling out the quest progress and xp I'd gained. Annoying.

Yeah I've been taking my time too - still haven't done a strike. Just running around exploring, doing public events. Having a blast!

I've also played a ton of Crucible, and it took a bit but I am loving 4X4. Coldheart seems like it needs a nerf. I'm happy to clean up with it in the meantime.

the exotic weapons needing the same "kind" of weapon to infuse to get to a higher level is one of those sort of pointlessly complicated things that just gums up your inventory, especially at the refreshing clip at which you get exotics. it's sort of fault because of how smooth and intuitive everything else is, especially at how easy and "cheap" it is to infuse exotics

yeah the approaching "endgame" and the little things like that that have started to crop up really hammers home how frictionless the experience has been up until now. i guess its the kind of thing that will build and build when they start to add more competing systems at the top end for content-hungry players too, until i end up confused by ten different baffling currencies again. i think factions are already slated to return at the end of the month?

squeaking in to hand in the milestones for powerful rewards 20 minutes before the weekly reset gave my power a nice boost 8-)
