As the famous quote goes, "Nothing ventured, nothing gained." In regards to Destiny there is a lot of venturing to do, but these 7 steps could help you reach the ambitious level 30 sooner than you think.
This is an awesome tip. Its great to get a guide that actually shows you what steps needs to be taken to reaching level 30. I am at level 23 and can't wait to hit 26 to get inside the Glass Vault.
I just wanna know how to get to level 25. Been on 24 for 5 days. I've got 1 purple item, a sniper. I've almost fully leveled my voidwalker and sunsinger, and have resorted to farming (though w no luck at all). I will buy items this weekend but I know as soon as I buy something, my 1st purple will b that.
As a level 24 hunter ,I finally got a legendary item yesterday..but it was for the TITAN class! I wanted to cry lol :-p
Light. Your light level is what determines if you level up. I've found that crucible gives you easy marks. So get your crucible rank up to 2 and then you can buy 1-2 legendary gear per week. Also strange coins. Try to get 13 so you can get the class specific exotic from Xii (or whatever his name is).
honestly, the fastest way is to level up a faction. You can do strikes, patrol or crucible (plus bounties of course) and all the points will go to the faction rank. Also for armor you need rank 2 not 3.
I farmed for 8hrs or more got 40 rare engrams and 10 legendary engrams and 90 vanguard marks and my level didn't move at all and only got 1 real legendary out of it and it was a useless rocket launcher. Than right after that I got a exotic rocket launcher. Game is evil. Figured out that I have to do 40 more bounties just to unlock access to one piece of legendary vanguard armor.( all I can afford even though I've done over 100 public missions. So many hoops to jump through to level up you're light. Already done like 100 of the repetitive bountys. I'm def starting to realize why destiny got crappy reviews. Biggest flaw is the fact that you get a green engram its always a green you get a blue engram it it could be a blue piece of armor or gun but it's probably going to turn out to be a green or a strange coin. Than if you get a legendary engram 90% of the time it will be a coin or a blue possibly a green. Worst dropping system ever. Pretty much after 25 you get zero rewards for grinding useless blues after useless blues can't access any legendary equipment due to not having enough rep even tho you have enough vanguard marks. Just figured out after 8 hrs of farming that in destiny it's all chance and no matter how much time you put into the game it won't matter. Bungie just shoves those repetitive bounties and public events down you're throat so you can actually get legendary items and not just fake legendary engrams with specific type of armor or weapon pictures on the engram that turn out to be opposite of what the picture and color represent.
Do Queen's Bounties, she gives favors after you complete the Queen's Wrath and you have a token, she will grant players legendary gear. @I_AM_CANADIAN_1989 This morning I got 3 rare engrams, and 2 legendary, both legendary game me strange coins, but the 2 of the 3 rares gave me The Culling(legendary Machinegun) and a legendary sniper. When I turned in my Queen's Bounties, I got awarded my second Exotic Bounty, this time I chose Bad Juju.
You are so right I purchased legendary gauntlets for my warlock then got a legendary gauntlet drop. This game's loot system will kill it as soon as other shooters come out.
You need to pick a faction and buy and equip the factions class item. From there complete bounties, patrols and PVP to level up your rank in the faction. You can then used crucible marks earned in PVP to buy Legendary items from that specific faction. You can do this with any and all factions and they all sell different gear, so you're not just locked into one.
I bought a legendary chest and gloves. Out of the 20 legendary engrams iv gotten none of them have been gloves or chest. Dont be afraid to spend some Vanguard points, otherwise they're just sitting there.
The whole farming thing can be very hit and miss.. which is why you have vendors that also sell legendary gear. If you are not having much looking finding stuff, why wait around for luck to happen. If you are going to grind, you may as well grind patrol missions, get your vanguard experience up to 2 then grind the weekly points from the strike playlist and start buying your gear. If you play more PVP, then you do the same there. I am a level 28. I really have not had any trouble leveling up at all. I didn't wait to find my first legendary, I got it from the Vanguard.
Do the "Queen's Emisary" bounties that are now available from the bounty npc, when you complete them turn them in for bounty tokens, once you have them (they'll show up in the missions section of your inventory) you can play a special randomized mission by selecting the "queens emissary" mission on the top left column of the world map. If you beat it you get guaranteed legendary armor/weapons for your class (did 4 yesterday) and got 4 legendaries... every person on my team did as well. Get it!
U need armor that contain Light!... try to buy a peace of exotic armor from the Weird looking vendor that only shows up during the weekends and do a lot of bounties. and of course, try u luck at the cave for any legendary gear(purple).
I would suggest not going in the raid till you're 27, at 26 you are taking 40% extra damage
the only thing that stops you is the rare materials... I.E - Ascendant Shards/Ascendant Energy... the other plant specific stuff is easy... just got to farm.. for the RARE materials..... play the DAILY MISSION on LVL 26 for 1 Shard or Energy... play on LVL 28 for 2 Shards or Energy.. I also believe you can receive RARE materials for completing public events also... But they are guaranteed if you beat the DAILY mission on the harder difficulties.. another tip is to not try and fully max one out right away.. when you finally get to the part for spending the rare materials... choose one, the choose another, and so on... so the light boost is constant across your armor. like increase the gloves 1 time, then the boots, then the helm, then the chest and then do the same thing again.
Good tip, that is one of the things I have been doing, also if you breakdown a legendary item you get ascendant material from it. when I get legendary gear I don't want I break it down. Then use it to rank up the gear I use.
Is level 30 the cap?
destiny is a tough game but i love it
And they said this game had little replay value. Reviewers who scored Destiny down should be chewing their keyboards and their fingers by now. This game rocks! I just hit level 26 today, but had to stop to go work to pay rent or else I'd be playing Destiny in the streets. LMAO Glass Vault here I come.
Fair enough if you're enjoying the game. Don't get swayed by reviewes of others too much. Ultimately your opinion is the most important one.
How does this prove anything against the reviewers? Like this article talks about doing what the person there did, but none of that will ACTUALLY get you anywhere, which makes me wonder why anyone would praise this article (it's more so news that someone capped, which isn't even arguably newsworthy on N4G). To give you an idea, the game has relatively 3 soft caps before you hit the final hard cap. The first is level 20, which is when you need light armor to progress, then at 24 / 25 you obtained the most rare can offer you and need legendary or better and to progress beyond level 29 you need raid gear to move forward. Now it's important to note that BGTV N3AC3Y either found some way to cheat, is the luckiest person in the *** damn world or did something that is no longer showing (this is extremely unlikely). While I don't want to push the notion they cheated, as I don't know how someone would go about it in Destiny, but for them to have all the gear they got with all the data listed, they would have to not only get 7 legendary drops from the raid, but the exact 7 drops needed to make the "perfect" character, which seems pretty unlikely. I mean, it's possible, but it stretches the imagination that they just so happened to get at least 3/4 of the Hunter armor pieces, the Hunter class item, primary weapon and special weapon in a maximum of 9 runs in the raid (1 for when it was added, 2 for both characters [though the second run requires you to do it at level 30, which people have enough problems doing at level 26] and another 2 for both characters because the raid reset less than 12 hours ago), though this also assumes the person was able to not only do the raid all these ways, but managed to do them all successfully this way or at least got most of their drops upfront. Anyway, I don't want to rant on about this all day, but the long and short is that this person was probably just absurdly lucky to the point where they were a statical anomaly. But back on topic, I don't see what this has to do with reviewers misgauging the game. You ultimately just do the same things a bunch of time like any other RPG, but there just doesn't seem to be as much or as much deviation in Destiny.
Great, now all I have to do is tell my boss I will be taking a two week vacation to put some hours into getting to that BIG 30. Yeehah!
Silly article, it just lists the stats from the one person who hit 30. It took HIM 107 hours, HE played 26% of his time in the crucible, HE played the raid for 14 hours... None of this might apply to the next level 30 person. I am sure there are people who play 75% crucible, do the raid a few times, and that's it and eventually they'll be a level 30. IMO this is poor journalism. He took facts from another article and spun them around to try and create a different story. Personally I do not respect that.
easy secret way to buy a brand new ps4 in only 6 steps 1) go through high school planning on art major 2) have your car break down 3) quickly get a job at a movie theater in order to pay for new car 4) work at a movie theater for 6 years 5) score an amazing high paying job 6) buy ps4
Well I appreciate the tip. Most gamers starting out this week will probably feel lost on what to do and where to begin. I think being able to have some guidance on what they need to do to even get to level 30 is very helpful. There are dozens of info streaming in on Destiny all the time and most tend to be people b*tching and moaning about why Destiny is so lame. I would rather read how to become a better player in the game than read the negative comments the game still keeps getting. Just my two cents from a Destiny Fanboy.
There aren't any "tips" in this article at all, though. If they wanted to make a real article about this guy they should have broke down what armor he has, where it comes from, how much light was on it, how many ascendant shards it will require to level it up, etc... Giving us his gameplay stats tells us nothing. I've played more hours than him and have twice as many kills and I'm a 28.
"I've played more hours than him and have twice as many kills and I'm a 28." This is an example of the broken loot system. You've done more than him, given more of your time to Bungie's game, and how do they reward you? With random sub-par things you don't need. The fact is is that the "first person to 30" really is the first person who got the luckiest drops. Very sad.
currently lvl 28 and the only way I see anybpdy hitting 30 is by getting raid gear
Is raid Purple Gear better/higher ranked than the other Purple gear you can buy or win?
Someone fill me in cause I'm at level 7.... aside from getting better weapons and gear what is the point of leveling up after you finish the story? Is everyone talking about multiplayer matches? I'm really not into multiplayer so if that is all that I have left to look forward to after the story ends than I will be trading in this game soon enough.
I don't think you need to do any PvP to reach max level. I'm 25 and I haven't gotten any light gear from PvP. I'll be able to hit 26 without it, and I think raid gear will take you to 30 from that point.
To clarify on your point: You don't NEED to play PvP, but the crucible marks and reputation can help you get Legendary gear at The Tower fairly quickly. It's a potentially faster route, but not one you must take.
I don't know what PvP means and I think I tried the crucible level and all it is is a bunch of multiplayer modes...but my point is what is the point of leveling up once you finish the story?? I understand you get better gear but what is the point once the story is done? Does it open up other parts that you couldn't get to before? Do you play the whole game over at the high ranking you are at allowing you to plow through it the 2nd time?? I know bungie has plans to extend the game with dlc but if it's mostly multiplayer modes and maps then I'm really not interested, thus making this whole leveling up kinda pointless....to me.
@optimus PvP means player vs player, the Crucible. Once you finish the story, you need to gear up to take on new content. There is a raid that requires you to be high level to succeed in.
If you have reason to play future missions, raids, (massive coop missions) and strikes (coop missions) some have direct tie to he story actually most do. you need higher ranked gear, This is the coop/single players game after story. If your not interested in that take that game back with gusto. This game may exand massively in the future. you can do most of this without crucible but may take longer leveling. Hell i finished story mode round lvl 14 or so. I kept it goin for potential for future and for doing all the other missions and the raid. hope this info helps you.
This "guide" is bullshit. In order to level up past 20 you need to rank up your light through gear and by simply killing x amount of people or playing x ammount of games is not going to get you the same amount of light as this dude got. who knows he could've farmed for 8 or 10 out of those 110 hours.Drops are random, do your own thing and find your prefered way of getting things done instead of following some guide its more fun that way
To save people clicking on a crappy "article" here are the seven steps: 1.) Play over 350 - 360 games 2. ) Kill over 20,000 thousand enemies 3.) Dedicate at least 110 hours into the game, with 26% of that time in the Crucible Once you reach level 26, you will then be able to access the Vault Glass raid. From here you have to: 4.) Spend at least 14 hours in the Vault of Glass. 5.) Kill over 2010 enemies. 6.) Perform at least 550 precision kills in the process 7.) Try to limit the amount of times you die in the Vault glass to at least 260
....and my answer to those steps are: 1) highly unlikely 2) you gotta be kidding me 3) I‘ve had the game since week 1 and have about 9 hrs so far and you want me to put in 110? Ha! That would take me like 1 yr or more. 4) possible, but not likely. 5) I'm at around 220 enemies so....ha! Dream on. 6) got about 30 of those so again....ha! 7) whatever this vault is, sounds like it's quite a task....a frustrating one. Sounds like I'll be trading this game a lot sooner than later.
This has to be the funniest response i have read all day. You actually had me laughing out loud while I was at work. I am at level 15, just haven't had as much time to go in on this game as I would have liked with work and all. Honestly think some people just have way too much time on their hands, or some sort of trust fund. I see most of my friends leveling past me, it sucks but not much I can do about it unless I am willing to lose sleep between my jobs to reach level 30. :(
@dannielle.... yeah really, it's like bungie hopes we don't eat, sleep, bathe or drop a load in the bathroom anytime soon....they got some nerve putting all these extravagant achievements on top of the regular achievements. Cause that's what they really are but they want you to feel like a boba fett wannabe by calling them bounties.... when I 1st heard of these bounties I actually thought they were actual bounties to collect ala' red dead redemption....maybe the game will end up changing my mind as I level up playing the story but as it stands at the moment it indeed deserves a 6.
there isnt much point for me to do all that grinding in destiny, considering that im definitely not buying the DLC. anyone who does should get their head examined. we all know that stuff should have been in the game to begin with. this is activision blatantly ripping everyone off by releasing an incomplete product. if you reward them for this, you are part of the problem.
Don't have the game, but from what i've seen and this article, its pretty much just grind away to get to 30. And now that i've posted something on topic, I need to say that the pic shown looks like a badass Castle Crashers character lol.
Sad thing is the story for castle crashers flows together better and is more tangible in game than Destiny. Stuck at 25. Same stupid drops even when riot mode was activated and killed ever thing!
Do the "Queen's Emissary" bounties then use the tokens you get to do her special missions... guaranteed legendaries as long as you have the token when you start the mission. Every person on my team got 5 legendaries (for their class) yesterday! EDIT: Sorry man.. responded to the wrong person :/
Maybe I'm missing something here, but all I see for tips in this guide is.. kill stuff, don't die, play a lot, and do raids? Sorry but, not overly informative for the mountains of people stuck at 20+ levels with little to no progress.
