Season of Chosen QUESTION THREAD
By - WistfulAether
Do new players start at 1100, and how long roughly (game hours) would it take to get to 1300. I am a returning D1 player that wants to try the new VoG
If i buy destiny 2 beyond light deluxe edition can i share the season pass with other ps4 accounts?
Nope. They can access the expansion content (Europa campaign, Stasis, etc.) but the season passes are account-specific
How is your overall light actually determined?
I thought that it just took the highest overall for each slot across the account? But I have a Hunter where all their armour is 1312 minimum. (And weapons of course) but then when I go on to my Titan that didn't reach 1310 last season and who's arm or is 1308 across the board, gets a drop. It still drops at like 1307/8. And that's for pinnacle gear.
I thought that if my hunter is 1312 because all its gear is 1312. Then as soon as I get a pinnacle drop on my Titan it should be, at the very least, 1312.
Am I misunderstanding something?
It only counts armor that can actually be equipped by the character. Only weapon power level is shared between classes. High level weapons help speed up leveling for second and third characters, but armor still needs to be leveled up separately.
Ohhh right. So it's literally just the weapon level that matters? But isn't that the way it's been since d1? I thought they completely overhauled it. That's why everyone liked the new system. But by the sounds of, literally nothing changed.
No, maybe I didn't explain it right. Your *equippable* max power on the current character is used to calculate drops. If you equipped all your highest power level weapons and armor and took an average, that's the number the game is using, even if your current power is lower than that.
For example, I've got a Hunter with all sunset gear at 1100 power, and a Warlock at 1310 in every slot, both weapons and armor. Those 1310 weapons *can be* equipped by my Hunter, so his equippable maximum power level is actually around 1179 (3 weapons at 1310 and 5 armor pieces at 1100, averaged out). That means my Hunter's drops are about 80 points higher because of the time I've put in on my Warlock, but my Hunter still needs to find their own armor.
Your Hunter's weapons are helping, but your Titan's armor is lower, which is why he's still getting lower drops.
Right but, that's still the exact same way it used to work in d1. I understand what you're saying but if the new average of that sunset Hunter is 1179, then the gear is still going to drop around that level right? As in it'll drop at like 1180.
I thought the new system meant, even if the Hunter is at 1179 (1310 weapons and 1100 armour) and you also have a character that is overall 1310. Then on the sunset Hunter any drop should be dropped at the 1310 point. Meaning you could very quickly get that other character up to speed.
Like that's just how it used to work before. Stuff just dropping at that characters specific level rather than the overall account level
It became character specific when they changed it from being based on what you had equipped and instead calculated it based on everything you have in your inventory/vault. In D1 and the start of D2, drops were based on the gear you had equipped at the moment the drop happened. Now your equipped gear doesn't matter because the game will calculate the drop based on everything you own, which is a lot more freeing but also came with the tradeoff of making power level determinations per-character
Regardless, leveling an alt goes by really quickly anyway. Having 1300 weapons equipped on an alt starting with 1100 armor still means that literally every single piece of gear that drops for you will be an improvement
What has happened to Glory points, at the start of the season I usually go up the ranks real quick but now its like barely any points a game? Have they tweaked the scoring again?
They mentioned some adjustments to Glory in the patch notes for this season, but I think while making those changes they also removed the accelerated progress they had for higher skilled players. A long time ago they put in a system that basically gave players who were supposed to be in Fabled/Mythic/Legend extra points for wins in lower tiers so they could rank up faster (which was a win-win for both them and people who aren't so skilled). But now it seems they reverted that change and point rewards are back to the bare minimum regardless of player skill.
It really sucks because I was set to get Unbroken this season and now I'm really questioning if I want to slog through that much Comp to get there
I recently bought the season pass but my light level is too low so my question is can i grind for the seasonal exotics even after the season has ended or can i obtain them for the duration of this season only?
You have plenty of time, tbh, we're still in the first week of the season. It's really easy to raise your power level, any blue drop will be an improvement until you're 1260
I believe all the seasonal activities will be available until sometime next year (when the next big dlc drops). You will only be able to level the season pass until the season ends, but everything else *should* stick around a while.
[Can anybody knows what causes this ](https://youtu.be/yMot7jjFRO0) it’s been there since beyond light launched
I have a question about buying the Deluxe Edition Upgrade after already owning the current season pass. I just spent $15 through Steam on a gift for my friend which gave him 1,700 silver. He then spent 1,000 of it on the season pass, only to find that some of the content he wanted to play requires previous seasons (like the Hawkmoon mission for example) and that the only way to play those now is to purchase the $30 Deluxe Edition Upgrade which includes the access he needs to those previous seasons. This is all fine and well, but since purchasing the upgrade would have given him the access to the current season anyway, if he were to buy that would he be refunded the 1,000 silver that he already spent on the season pass? Or did I just waste my money and we end up paying for the same thing twice? Because if he ends up with 1,700 silver and all seasons then I'm fine with having spent the $15 on him, but if he ends up only having the 700 left over then that means I was just cheated out of $10 and I'm going to be pissed.
I had 100 mobility and 103 recovery on my hunter, I switch my shaders and lost 4 mobility points??? was it always 96? Why did it display as 100 until I went in and out of transmog?
Goto collections -> Armour -> leveling
Right now white, green and blue armour transmods give a +1 in a stat depending on the class. Warlocks are recovery and res i think and its possible to make your character have +4/5 res using this method. This might be why
What is going on with Battlegrounds? It’s a vanguard playlist powerful drop event but two of my three characters can’t get the cutscenes to obtain the hammer. My first character played season of the chosen for like an hour and got it. I have no idea how to get into it on my second and third.
What is the deal with the pinnacle glitchs? I just completed Deep Stone Crypt with my clan because it says right next to it that we would get pinnacle gear... And none of us did... So we split in two to get Presage done because it claims to give pinnacle gear... And none of us got any... Then I notice that HELM claims I have pinnacle gear waiting from splicer for some reason... And it, like all the rest, drop at 1310 (when I am 1312 without the artifact.) Am I supposed to be getting pinnacle gear and the labels are wrong, or is it a glitch? And either way, what are the real ways to get pinnacle gear right now so I stop wasting my time...
DSC and Presage aren’t pinnacles this season
Funny how it says they are right next to them before you complete them...
Can you still complete the title or is it too late?
You have until the end of next season to complete it
Awesome thank you
What armor can ada 1 sell? Can she sell old trials of the nine armor/osiris armor?
They are only sets from the world loot pool
I have a legitimate issue that I haven’t seen anyone really talk about. Why on Earth does Deep Stone and Trials not give out Pinnacle gear? I don’t care about rushing to max power, but I just don’t understand why the two End-Game activities don’t drop pinnacle right now. Someone please help me understand, thank you guys!
Presage and DSC both claim to drop pinnacle gear... And then just don't when you complete them. The HUD is messed up this season :/
I’m not sure if this is the right thread, but I’m starting to play this season on my titan which I haven’t touched since beyond light came out and I can’t start the seasonal quest for season of the chosen, it says to speak to Osiris and Crow but they never appear at the war table and was wondering if anyone knew a fix for that? Cause I’d like to have something to grind you know? I’ve stood at the table for atleast 5 minutes with no one showing up.
So I want to do the Scavengers Den Lost Sector to get the new exotics, but it isn't showing up for me. I also did all the lost sectors, but it's still not there. Is there something I haven't done yet?
That was yesterday’s list sector, they rotate daily
Ah... Okay. Thanks.
Is my character bugged?
I do not have a quest for the new stasis aspect available from the Exo Stranger. I am a Warlock. I know that the Bleak Watcher warlock aspect was disabled recently, but it has disappeared completely from my stasis options and now I cant seem to be able to start the quest for the new one.
Is this an issue others are having or is there something I'm missing? I know I did all of the other three aspect quests already.
Just tried doing the howl of the storm quest but it won't update after destroying the two shards and the wave of vex doesn't even appear. Anyone know how to fix this?
What’s the easiest way to get glimmer now?
Buy it from Spider. By far the fastest way. If you don’t like that I’d suggest putting the best glimmer mod you have on your ghost. It improves glimmer drops.
Yeah his rates are terrible now lol
how to get decrypted data? I kinda used them on engrams lol
Do the override activity.
How can I get bad juju
You buy it from the monument to lost lights in the tower
A few gaming sites wrote articles explaining how this new transmog system is a huge grind... But naturally they failed to explain what this transmog thing actually is. So what is it and why should I care about it? I've been OOTL since the last season released and only came back a few days ago to grind for the exotic bow from the last season. I heard that all shaders are gone now. Does this transmog thing have anything to do with it?
Also does this season look any good?
Transmog is a general term for game systems that let you make one piece of gear look like another. In Destiny, it's called Armor Synthesis, where you can make universal ornaments out of armor you've previously acquired. The procedure is seen by many as needlessly complex (involving *three separate currencies*), on top of the hideous grind. Shaders being gone is kind of related in that it's a change to the cosmetic system, but Armor Synthesis doesn't actually involve shaders at all. Though they did bump up the cost of shaders in eververse to 300 bright dust, causing additional annoyance.
Otherwise, this season seems decent so far. The story content is good, and the new activity is reasonably fun.
Thanks for the explanation! So basically the new feature this season is you can make an universal ornament out of any previous armor you've acquired but its a huge grind to do it? (classic bungie lol).
How do shaders work now then?
Shaders are no longer inventory items. They cost glimmer to apply, but once you unlock one, you can just apply it infinitely from the menu without having to buy copies from the collections folder.
Thanks, that's great to hear!
Hot take on this: Random drops should require the Synthweave currency to transmog, but the predetermined gear rewarded for directly fulfilling associated activities should already be a Universal Ornament. It's a slap in the face to be greeted with another grind after just completing one.
Is it normal to have to buy the season pass in order to play the content more then once or is it somerhing that was added last season?
I think they announced they were giving one run to all players as a sort of trial. It is normal to need the season pass to play seasonal activities. They'll probably keep doing it this way in future seasons.
How to get Spoils of conquest now solo?
I was doing the first chest of the deep stone crypt will all 3 characters last season to get 30 per week and finally be able to get anarchy.
I tried today and I didn't get any, so now I'm stuck at 160 spoils... 😩
They took that away?
99% sure you're stuck waiting for VoG.
Yeah... That's what I was afraid of lol. Oh well, gotta start finding people to raid with i guess!
HELP! I had to log off after watching the cut scene before doing the opening mission. On re-opening the game a few hours later, I don’t have the opening quest - is there another way to get it?
The opening mission for the season? You should be able to access it from the Europa map.
What armor, weapons, mods, and light power do I need for vault of glass. I'm very worried I can't do it and I don't have anarchy, really what I'm looking for is recommendations for things I should get before the raid.
You should be at 1300 power (being over doesn't help, being under does hurt). Xenophage, Lament, and Anarchy are all fairly safe bets for damage. I seem to remember engagements being mostly medium to long range on D1. I suspect high end snipers might be more valuable than shotguns, but I'm not 100%. Standard stuff like Phoenix Protocol and Ursa Furiosa will probably be valuable depending on your class. There's a small chance being able to maximize invisibility on hunter could come in handy for one of the encounters. Mobility exotics might help here and there too, but I wouldn't worry about them too much. Divinity is almost always welcome, if you can get a hold of it.
The problem is, we know they're going to make changes to the raid, but we don't know how many or how drastic. You could always youtube a guide or two for VoG in D1 to get a good idea of what it will be like, more or less. Likewise, Grandmaster Nightfall guides might give a good idea of how people run high difficulty content. Otherwise just trying to have access to things that will let you handle a wide variety of scenarios is probably the best thing you can do.
Are the whisper and sleeper still relevant raid weapons? I am super OOTL
I think Whisper has fallen out of favor with how hard it can be to keep up high DPS. People were looking forward to using Sleeper in the raid with the new linear fusion buffs, but I'm seeing reports it got missed (possibly intentionally?). Sleeper would be worth keeping in the back pocket, but I think rockets (with lasting impression for the damage buff) and Xenophage are more popular for damage phases these days. Witherhoard is another one that would be worth picking up in general, and probably won't be a bad choice in the vault. Deathbringer also got a catalyst this season that help it be a valid option.
Yeah I don't have any of those. might as well start grinding
Thanks for scrolling a bit to find this and I appreciate you for helping me! Again, thank you, I will be using this to help me.
What is the name of the seasonal armor set? Is it the Annealed Shaper? Is it the Lightkin?
Lightkin, I believe.
is there a way i can reclaim battle pass rewards that i’ve already claimed on a seperate guardian. For example, i claimed the first 10 tier rewards with my titan but im trying to get the rewards on my hunter character? please let me know if there’s a way :)))
I believe this is account wide so one time only. So if you grabbed season cores as a seasonal reward, its a shared resource for all characters to share.
When do we get a fix or an update on fixing fps for new AMD GPUs?
Kinda sucks I have a top of the line card and cpu yet I get down to 40 fps in the new mode
Hello! Is there a guide to this game for new players? Former D1 player here, I’m super confused what the fuck is going on, how to get a Sparrow, how to find where quests are supposed to be. Is the base game deleted and did they not replace it with a new player experience?
I need like..a baby steps tutorial..
Are you returning to a character you made a long time ago? There is a decent set of in-game tutorials that are available for brand new characters right now, but they won't trigger automatically if you made your guardian before Beyond Light
[This link](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Q07M8zBUj1yMab4YJjv6aV5QO7hNRuALvxR7xwLXIVs/edit?usp=sharing) might be a bit helpful. It's a bit out of date, but has a lot of info you much be looking for.
There's a kiosk next to the postmaster in the tower that has old (legacy) quests that might help get your bearings. Anything labeled New Light is part of the new player experience.
[PreviouslyOnDestiny.com](https://www.previouslyondestiny.com/) is a decent resource if you're trying to get caught up on the story.
On Xbox, I get a Sparrow by pulling out my ghost (the button left of the Xbox button) and pressing X.
There are also 'new player' guides on YouTube that might help.
Sorry I can't be more specific, I haven't seen any of the New Light stuff myself.
If you have specific questions, I can try to answer as best I can, and don't worry, every community has its trolls, but most of us around here aren't like that other commenter.
Thank you!!! I’m checking those out now. I ended up buying a sparrow (in a destiny bundle) since I didn’t have one to equip and was getting tired of walking.
Any benefit to slotting more than one key code?
Slot as many as you can so that you can earn more ether while playing other modes. Nothing else to spend it on anyway
Anyone else getting rocked in pve content that was challenging but doable prior to the new season?
I have noticed as well, not going to lie, kinda dig it.
Can you not masterwork the weapons banshee is selling? I picked up the smg and I don't see a masterwork anywhere on it.
It's a bug with just the SMG and sword that he's selling right now
Thanks for the response. Good to hear it's not planned. Hopefully we will be able to masterwork these at some point.
Whats the best way to farm the cryosthesia catalyst?
Check raid secrets
Is there any way to get glacioclasm, or did I miss that?
Christmas event, you just missed it by a few months
So I have two questions. If I buy S14 now, and buy the Beyond Light Deluxe Edition later, will I still get the S13 seasonal activities?
Also is there/will there be a seasonal activity this season that gives an exotic? similar to the dead mans tale mission last season?
I’m not 100% on either but I would say likely yes to both. Its more likely on the exotic though as season 12 had an exotic with hawkmoon.
This will probably be the first season I try to hit max light level so I can raid VoG. What are some of the best ways to do that? Last time I tried grinding Ordeals
You need to get to the soft cap of 1260 first if you haven't. You can do that just by playing and getting blues. Try to avoid any powerful/pinnacle rewards listed for the activity you're in until you reach 1260. Next you want to get to the powerful cap (1310) by doing all the activities on the director that say they reward powerful gear. Do tier 1 first, then tier 2, then tier 3. Technically if you want to level as efficiently as possible, you should be calculating if blues will help you. If you have items that are below your current level, you may be able to go up an extra level by replacing them with blue items that are at your current level before doing another powerful. Just add up the levels of all the items you have above your level then add your current level for each item you have below it and divide the total by 8. If you get a number higher than your level, go for blues before doing more powerfuls.
After that, you can only get above 1310 by doing things that say they reward pinnacle gear. If you run out of powerful rewards in a given week and haven't hit 1310, you can still level up by doing the pinnacles, just do them last. They will give you a big boost, but should be the last thing you do each week so that they don't give you something higher than a powerful in the same slot would. That would be a waste of the powerful. You should still be calculating for blues once you move on to pinnacles.
The max level this season is 1320, so you won't get anything higher than that.
If you want a quick guide to what you should do next, https://destinyoptimizer.com/ will let you log in through bungie.net and load your characters. It will tell you what to do next, whether that be open the prime engram in your inventory, do powerfuls, or pinnacles. It will also tell you what tier of powerful or pinnacle to do and what activities are which tiers.
Is it a bug or is the armour shader (apply to all) not working?
Bug I think. Mine works fine.
Is there any way to get dead mans tale and hawk moon through purchase of season of the splicer?
Ignore the other response. No, the only way seems to be to buy Beyond Light deluxe edition, which comes with the exotic quests and some of the activities, but not the season pass rank rewards. Otherwise, it's thought they might be available through the Monument to Lost Lights when the next major DLC drops next year.
Purchased Beyond light deluxe on PS4. Now it’s asking me to purchase latest season (Splicer)!?!? I though I got this included?
You should have season of the splicer, I would check your purchase history and make sure you got the right version. If not, either return and then buy again, or contact Bungie or Sony support (I'm not sure, I'm on PC).
Anybody won't to explain what transmog is and why we hate it? Explain it like I'm five. I'm new in the gaming world. So don't know anything. Almost anything.
Transmog is the ability to turn any obtained piece of armor into a universal ornament, something you can put on your armor. Essentially if you like the look of an armor piece, you can turn it into a modification and put that on any legendary armor piece. People dislike that it's a lengthy, grindy process to transmog armor and that the grind can be circumvented through microtransactions.
Oh.. and what does that have to with the fact that we should dismantle our shaders?
And thanks, I didn't even know that I could do that, lol. XD
Well nothing now, since all shaders got wiped yesterday and you can’t delete them anymore
But what was the purpose for us to dismantle them? Is there coming a new system?
Yes, all shaders collected are now available from a sub menu on each item
Hmm. So let me get this right.. from now on. I have access to the shades I get.. but I don't need to use storage for them?
Correct. When you go to put a shader on an item it lets you choose any shader that you own. You don't need them in your inventory anymore. The reason people were dismantling them was they would give you legendary shards and/or glimmer. Since they were changing the system for this season, you weren't losing anything by getting rid of them
Oh.. thanks man!
I think you need some materials or whatever and IIRC you can only transmog 10 times each season
can symmerty create warmind cells with mods?
You either need a seventh seraph weapon to make warmind cells, or the wrath of Rasputin mod plus a solar weapon.
I was out last season so my light level is around 1252. I did a few strikes and I seem to be stuck at 1260. I thought blues would get me to the new soft cap 1300? Or do I have to grind for powerfuls? Thanks!
soft cap is 1260, which means any drop will drop at an increasing rate based on your PL up until 1260. after that, is the power cap, which is now 1310. then after that is the pinnacle cap, which is now 1320
The Twab notes said the new lowest cap was 1260. That may be the blue cap for you, but powerfuls and pinnacles will give you big bumps (not just +1)
Allright, that's what I thought. Thanks for the reply!
How does cross play work?
It doesn’t yet.
It worked for a short duration, but it got turned off
Wasn't that just a r/raidsecrets datamining hack?
There’s a post with a guy joining his fried on XBox
Is Mayhem coming back? Going to be sad if it doesn't.
I'm seeing that weapons and armor, up to a certain season (Undying\[I think\]) have the Power Lvl cap as infinite. Is it going to stay like that forever?
Yeah. Bungle have said that they’ve stopped with sunsetting.
Anything already sunset is staying capped, everything else will stay uncapped for good
Dumb question maybe, When you get to be able to customize your apperance with the Ornament thing, do.you unlock it forever ?
Once you turn an item into an ornament, it stays an ornament for legendary armour
Is DSC dropping pinnacles? Ive seen posts that it’s not
No dsc will no longer drop pinnacles, they will drop in vog
so after looking through my seals i realized after going from conqueror to dredgen, warden etc i cant go back to conqueror. please tell me this is a bug because it feels pretty unfair not being able to select my conqueror seal if i put in the effort for it.
Look under the legacy tab. Can't describe it well, but there's a button on the left to pull up legacy stuff that can't be achieved anymore, such as how I equiped the "saviour" title.
cant believe i got frustrated while not even looking at legacy lmaoooo. thanks for the reply man 👊🏽
So I started the new hunter stasis quest and I investigated the object and now what? There is nothing on my map. I’m lost. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I’ve tried logging out and deleting them reacquiring the quest. Nothing worked.
Can't remember all the steps, however, if you're stuck at the part with the stasis weilding captain then you have to shoot the little pyramids with Salvation's Grip
Thanks. That’s exactly what it was. I re equipped Salvation and found the nodes.. Happy Hinting Guardian.
how do you get either for the splicer keys?
Playlist activities completed. Playlist strikes, Gambit and Crucible matches
what nightfall weapon is dropping this week? i've heard the plug one.1, but im hoping it is hung jury
It's the plug. I'd wait for adept versions in a few weeks before grinding any of the weapons though. Plug could be good in pve since it has reservoir burst as a perk, but so does null compromise. I don't know which will be better. It also can roll killing wind/backup plan for pvp, which could be nasty.
Did the recast Ikora’s voice actor or have I just not heard hear talk in so long it sounds off
I said this same thing and my friends said she sounds the same. I think she sounds different.
I’m pretty sure new VA
Why does the guardian games statue say that Titans won?
If you bought all the tiers dm me I got a question about the season pass ornaments.
Any reason why the "Wishes of Sorrow" Thorn ornament wasn't included in the eververse store archive expansion?
Is there crossplay ???
Where do i actually buy the season pass, i can't find it anywhere?
I'm missing some armor from transmog for example the legacy oath set
Also same, just the helmet on my Titan.
Are they going to be doing a Steam bundle with the season pass and some silver? Or is it silver only this year?
Hey guys has anyone tried to synthweave the Majestic Solstice Gear from forsaken year 3? If I unlock it will I also be able to equip the Glow?
They've addressed that in the last TWAB.
A solution is in the works. You'll be able to transmog the Legendary set with glows depending on your subclass similar to last year's Solstice set.
How do I transmog? I've gone as far as I can in the quest.
Go down to the bottom half of your inventory screen, where your emblems and stuff are. Its the top right selection above emblems. There you select the current piece youre wearing, and it will let you select what item to make a transmog of.
So is the Tying it Together quest bugged or do I have to go find 100 rigid synthcord even thought Ada gave me materials?
No option to buy it anywhere in game, PSN store or online
I logged out then logged back in and it progressed the quest, maybe give ethat a try. I'm on PS5
Who else can’t buy the season pass? Meaning there’s literally no buy button for it.
Same for me on PS5
I can’t buy mine either
Me to, i can’t buy it. Someone know why?
ok i might be stupid, but how the hell do you transmog stuff? I’ve been through the appearance menu, collections, completed the quest to the point where ada gives you the synth weave, but I can’t find how to actually do the thing
Edit: nvm i have big dumb just figured it out
The button for it is on the character screen, scroll down, top right where emblems used to be.
so basically in the new appearance menu you can unlock universal ornaments directly when you click on an armor piece you have equipped
Big thanks my guy, that's why I came here
yessir no problem
Is the glow from Season 14s ornaments (Season Pass ones not eververse) affected by shaders? Wondering if anyone just flat out bought the tiers and found out.
I have a question: why
Anyone know how to get around error code honeydew?
Means Bungo themselves did a big oopsie and its closed to all guardiansSo it's up to their discretion.
Thanks. New season is pretty good so far once i got to play it.
Wait, its all we can do
Some serious bs I've never really had to deal with until now. I got thrown out of mission 2x before I was able to get to Eliksni camp before being booted back to orbit
Trying to understand gear stats. From the season pass I have 4 Praefectus Grips, they range in item level from 1201 to 1246 as I collected them at different times. Up until now I would just equip the highest item level, but I notice that the level 1246 grips have a total of 48 stats and 1 void energy. but the 1201 level grips have a total 65 stats and 6 void energy.
How do gear stats work, do higher item levels not mean higher stats? In this case should I equip the 1201 level item?
The level has nothing to do with stats. Armour stats are randomised with certain activities rewarding higher stat armour.
In Destiny your character's level is calculated as an average power level of all of your equipped pieces of armour and weapons.
Until 1250, blue (Rare) quality items will drop at higher and higher numbers. Between 1250 and 1300 the only way to get higher power level items is through the so-called Powerful and Pinnacle rewards (the golden stars at various places in the Destinations tab). Once you hit 1300 the only way to reach max level is by obtaining Pinnacle rewards.
There is a way to bring your gear up to the current level through the process of Infusion. When infusing an item, you choose a higher-level one to sacrifice and it will bring its level up to that number. This works on a per-slot bassi, so if you want to infuse a 1250 level helmet, you need another helmet that is at least 1251. The process costs 1 upgrade module or 1000 glimmer when you are infusing the same type of item (as is the case with your Praefectus Grips).
What you can do in your situation is to infuse your 1201 65 stats grips with the 1246 48 roll. This will up their level to 1246 and your 48 stat roll will be consumed in the process. Generally during the power level grind, I don't care about the stats of my armour until I reach the Powerful cap (1300). I'll run whichever item has the highest level and infuse my best-stat armour later to save on upgrade modules. Stats are not **that** important in this game, but they are nice once you start min-maxing and experimenting with different builds.
* The 1300 and 1310 caps are being raised to 1310 and 1320 respectively in Season of the Splicer.
* You don't need to have the armour/weapon equipped for it to count towards your average, you can keep the highest-level items in your vault and they will still improve your average.
* Do not dismantle your highest level gear. It will drop your level.
* You can check the average of your gear levels [in the Destiny Inventory Manager app](https://app.destinyitemmanager.com/). Clicking on your power level will tell you [which items you own have the highest level and how high or low they are compared to the average](https://i.imgur.com/uebZGZW.png).
* I've said *level* far too many times in this post.
This was the perfect response.
Fantastic, thankyou very much for the detailed response, that makes sense.
Is the item level cap only increasing by 10 this season? I thought it went up 50 each season?
It was supposed to, but people were complaining about the grind at the beginning of each season so they've toned it down. Good news is that if you are 1310 now, you only have 10 Pinnacle levels to reach max.
Ok thanks, I probably need to look at setting myself some new targets for this season as gearing up to the power cap will be quicker.
How do I get old catalyst I have unlocked in collections but I don’t see how to equip or use them in my inventory?
If you look at the screen where you put mods on your weapons for the weapon that has the catalyst it will be there. But you need to complete the masterwork objective in order complete the catalyst and actually apply it to the weapon. Usually it's killing a bunch of enemies with that weapon. Once that's done a message will pop up "masterwork complete" or something like that. Then you can go back to the mod screen and apply the catalyst.
If for some reason you've deleted your exotic, any subsequent times you pull that exotic weapon from your collection you will have to re-apply the catalyst, but you won't have to do the objective, it will already be ready to be applied.
Thank you I now see where I can equip the catalyst “skin” that I did before. Haven’t played in a long time so thank you for explaining!
Will Seasonal Challenges and weekly story content still be a thing?
Best part about the chosen season for me
It will, apparently.
