Destiny: See What a Level 29 Titan Can Do

From Ryan Mccaffrey of IGN: The Destiny beta maxed out at a mere level 8. Want to see how badass you can be after you've reached, say, level 29? Destiny sandbox designer Sage Merrill shows off just how superpowered you can get once you hit (and exceed) the level-20 cap. (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

i thought they said the level cap was at 20. as well that titan looks sweet
jriquelme_paraguay  +   299d ago
In the menu if you see in the video, say 20... but with all the upgrades and advanages, its 29 :o
Mikelarry  +   299d ago
yeah I did see that..... my head hurts :) i wish they would come out and say what the level cap is with all the sub classes, upgrades and advantages would be, i guess we shall find out at release
crxss  +   299d ago
my guess is that it's 20 per subclass. his defender titan is probably lv 9. so max would be 40 and 60 once they announce that dlc 3rd subclass.

So you end up feeling your playing Borderlands 2... that's what i got from that video.

Borderlands 2 just have wackier/crazier skill sets and powerups.
Battlefieldlover  +   299d ago
@DMC wackie and crazier is. Borderlands. Destiny seems to take on a much more serious and dark tone. Are they similar? Obviously, but considering GearBox has decided to leave "next gen" out of there current plans I say the title of King FPS-RPG is up for those willing to take it. Destiny sure does have what it takes.
CrimsonAzure  +   298d ago
Gearbox already revealed a next gen RPG FPS called Battleborn. Looks pretty fun just based off it's aesthetic.
Sevir  +   298d ago
The level cap is 20 for all classes.. what allows you you exceed the level cap is the rare gear you attain. As you level them up your level increases along with your specs... This is how you'll be able to survive the level 26-31 strike, Raids and nightfall activities with your with your 6 party raid team.

Can't wait for this game to launch.

"i wish they would come out and say what the level cap is"

From what I understand, the level cap is 20, but you can go to 30/31 with Motes of Light on your equipment.
rdgneoz3  +   299d ago
Yep, if people checked out the purple gear on different vendors during the alpha/beta (and yellow like the guy's in the video), they'd see that motes of light increased their effective level. And it looked like the guy had 118 motes from all his gear.

The Soft level cap is 20.
Which means you only level your character up to 20, after that you collect legendary armor and get motes of light to level your character up farther.
creatchee  +   299d ago
Once you hit 20, you level up in a different way with the Light system. It's a pretty cool concept!
Cryptech  +   299d ago
Dude, the armor and rifle are sick. Those buffs you get are really nice. Can't wait (even more) for this game!
ramiuk1  +   298d ago
what i dont understand is how can those lvl 2 AI do so much damage against a lvl 20,
I always thought it be like mmo where because you was so high lvl the smaller stuff didnt aggro?
FamilyGuy  +   298d ago
Debug mode
NiteX  +   298d ago
It was like that in the beta as well. It didn't matter if you were level 8 or level 1 the level 2's did the same amount of damage to you. Guess they want it this way so you never feel like a god? Kinda destroys the feeling of becoming more powerful though in a way.
kazuma999  +   298d ago
LOL IGN confirmed that you gain more levels by playing more of the game after lvl 20. Mobs drop exp and you have to collect to move on pass 20.
DonDon  +   298d ago
I wasn't impressed at all by the video.
TAURUS-555  +   298d ago
this plays better on the PS4
cleft5  +   298d ago
FF14 does something similar to this, where the level cap is 50 but the item level can go up to a 110.
TheXgamerLive  +   298d ago
Im really dissapointed w/Destiny. Obviously it was made for last gen consoles with its closed feeling wbere as say The Witcher 3 you can go anywhere. I know different games but Destiny's one lo cal per planet is disaponting. Definately not a 10 yr game IMO but still fun but very last gen limited I can just play Halo 5 soon for a better more open experience or the Halo MCC for a similar feeling tbh. I just expected more.
jriquelme_paraguay  +   299d ago
Bu bbuuu buuuut... Level 20 is the level cap...
thunderbird86  +   299d ago
Wrong again.
NiteX  +   298d ago
Actually he is technically right. If you remove all your gear, you will be 20.
thunderbird86  +   296d ago
If you were capped at 20, you couldnt go above 20. You understand what a cap is, right?
BeardedPriest  +   299d ago
How does one get Motes of Light?
Chaoticmoon  +   299d ago
After reaching level 20 every subsequent level you will earn one Mote of Light which can be used for upgrades, currency for vendors or at least for the speaker, and more.
Cryptech  +   299d ago
He says in the video that at this level you are nearing the end of the primary campaign. So the story mode will take you up to around level 30? Very interesting indeed.
OrangePowerz  +   299d ago
I think the extracted data had story missions for lvl 32 listed.
thejigisup  +   299d ago
I believe that was just difficulty level or rather reconvened level for your guardian. ie if it's above your level it will be tough. Meaning hypothetically speaking of course a max level character of can attempt a level where the enemies are more difficult which I believe is always key to keeping a game interesting and fun. If there is still no challenge at max level then what is the point?
Torgul  +   299d ago
Everything looks awesome, just a little scared because there wont be matchmaking for raids. Not sure to get 5 friends playing this game a the same Time. Sounds to be a bad idea it case.
wsoutlaw87  +   299d ago
walk by some people while playing, send a friend request, do the raid.
Mac420  +   299d ago
Raids will be a very difficult game mode, hardiest in the game. Glad they didn't add matchmaking. How do people not have at least 5 others buying this game, If your friends are not getting this with you, there not your friends IMO.

It's rumored that it took Bungie's best in house testers 16 hours on the Vault of Glass raid an they still failed.

Do you seriously think that would be possible with randoms in Matchmaking? I highly doubt it, love that they don't allow it. I remember playing Zombies on BO1 when I had nobody on, that was god awful, with only 1 objective as the goal, stay alive an shoot zombies.

Required almost no communication or teamwork between people. Just luck, hoping somebody pulled a good gun out the box an zombies dropped Max Ammo. Raids are on a entire different level so no matchmaking is a good thing to me at least. To many casuals play games, Raids are not for the casuals.

HacSawJimThugin  +   299d ago
I partially agree but life constantly throws unknown variables at us and there is no guarantee that all 5 friends will be able to get on and do raids for hours on in.

Why would Bungie force this on people? All of our lives are different and full of unique circumstances.

I'm paying full price for this game just like everyone else but if I don't have 5 friends on actively playing Destiny, willing to do raids, I can't do play them?

Sure, I can invite people in the tower or off of forums to play with me but having the option to have matchmaking should be there also.

It's crazy because the people against matchmaking in raids the most have 5 friends ready to go (or so they claim). If that is the case why do you care? Matchmaking doesn't affect you at all.

It not about finishing the raid or getting our assess handed to us in it but having fun and getting the full experience we paid for. Like I always say, options are beautiful.
HammadTheBeast  +   299d ago
5 friends online at the same time for the same period of time is the problem. A quick match system or in-game party system would be nice as well as chat within the Tower.
_FantasmA_  +   298d ago
Oh, look at me, I'm so popular I always have 5 friends online whenever I want them to play. Who seriously says matchmaking should be removed?
Nathan89  +   298d ago
I bet matchmaking isnt completely out. It just depends on how many people do it. If enough people are finding their way to get 5 other friends and play they wont change it. If only a small percentage get enough friends to run it then we will see matchmaking with an update.
JeffGUNZ  +   298d ago
@ Mac420

Depends on people's age and life status. I am married, my best friend is married, my other buddy is married with a kid, my other friend is engaged and works a lot. My one brother is married with 2 kids, my second brother is married and lives on the opposite coast of America. Also, my one buddy recently moved to Arizona and is in a different timezone. So, to get everyone on for a raid that could take HOURS long to complete, is unrealistic for gamers in the mid 20's-and older range.
Sevir  +   298d ago
Those who played the beta and spent 40+ hours on it are serious about it. I have about 10 people I've become serious buddies with while playing Destiny and after they learnt that the Raids and Nightfall activities require team work, they've all commuted to setting up times to start these challenges. That's the beauty of the community and social aspects of Destiny, and half of these buddies of mine were just people that randomly joined my fire party while I was out exploring old Russia by myself. People who weren't on my friend's list initially.

This is why I'm not worried about content or this overblown notion that this game isn't big. I can't wait to take my buds and explore earth, the moon, the reef, mars and Venus, grinding, completing the story missions and and strikes, leveling up my subclass and then going after the Raids and daily/weekly nightfall challenges.

I wouldn't worry too much about finding people to play, I'm sure over the course of owning the game you can find people just as serious as you about enjoying Destiny to the fullest to play and take on Raids... It's the end game stuff anyway. So you've got some time to amass your perfect party.
DJStotty  +   298d ago
i presume it will be 2 min 5 max friends for raids. Otherwise if everyone could only get 2/3/4 people then no one in the world would be playing. Just apply a bit of common sense and you will come to a logical conclusion

You cant really have matchmaking on a co-op game mode as it will require constant communication and there is always that player that joins co-op modes and then stands their doing nothing or purposely dying.

The right choice to leave it out in my opinion, leave it co-op friends only

JeffGUNZ  +   298d ago
Nope. You have to have a full team to enter. Their was an interview on IGN titled something like "The end game blah blah blah" and the guy from bungie says you need a full team.

They have to either add matchmaking or make an area in the tower designated for people to meet up if they are looking to join a team for a raid.
Rooted_Dust  +   298d ago
Head over to Bungie.net. There are a ton of groups looking for members. Think of their website as the world chat.

I was recruited off of those forums into (TRP) TheRedPhoenix, and I got to play all through the beta with people from the clan. This game is 100 x better with a real Fire-team.

His pulse rifle didn't do much damage consider it's damage was in the 200s. lol
Stapleface  +   299d ago
I noticed that.. I had level 8 gear doing more damage than that. I wonder if it had something to do with the cheats he had on. Maybe the enemies took less damage or something.
Drithe  +   299d ago
This game is GOD. I should not have watched this video. tears in me eyes now. How in the hell am I supposed to wait until September 9th! AAARRRGGGGHH!!!
rocky047586  +   299d ago
I have never been a fan of Halo, have always hated FPS games because they give me a headache. But this game? This game has converted me for sure. It is quite amazing and I cannot wait to play the full game in September!
KRUSSIDULL  +   299d ago
I hope they show Warlock and Hunter as well. I'm still not sure what class to play.
Mac420  +   299d ago
Subclass for hunter oriented around Arc light looks amazing.

Hunter Bladedancer look that up on youtube, looks CRAZY.
Sevir  +   298d ago
Yep and they have another one for each guardian that'll be announced closer to launch, it'll come as part of One of the expansion packs.
purp13m0nk3y  +   299d ago

Is it just me or do all the weapons in destiny feel very similar? Like every pulse rifle feels the same (just different stats) every hand cannon feels the same (just different stats) I got really bored with the weapons in the beta.

I mean ignoring the different stats, there are basically only like 8 different weapons in the game right?
DJStotty  +   298d ago
8 weapons for a beta aint bad

For all the people that complained about how generic the beta gameplay was, such as "only 4 weapon types blah blah" and limited talent selection, does this video assuage your fears in any way? It looks like weapon and gear special effects could have a profound impact on playstyle. It's almost as if the beta only gave *gasp* an entry level teaser? Hypothetical situation, if somebody talked about how bland WoW was at level 10, and then wrote the game off without checking out end game content, what would you say to them?
Sevir  +   298d ago
Bingo, who plays a game under controlled variables designed to be a stress test and a taste of entry for the full experience only to complain about not having enough to do in the final release.
