Some tips I have learned

Recommended Posts

I have been playing since launch day last Wednesday and got just under 24 hours play time recorded. 

 

Figured I would share some tips I picked up along the way, things I did that I shouldn't have etc.

 

Firstly, complete the campaign before you do anything. Ignore the adventures as well. (yes they give high light level items but for the time it takes to complete them, to get 1 armour/ weapon piece, isn't worth it in my opinion - time better spent doing a public event) 

 

Once you complete the campaign, farm the heck out of lost sectors, public events, planetary chests, patrol missions and region chests. (Heroic public (link on how to activate heroic events is at the end of this post) events are your best bet for levelling up your light level fast, each event can give up to 3 planet tokens, chance for a legendary/ exotic engram and a guaranteed blue engram that 9/10 times has higher light level than your current equipment!)

 

Whilst farming these events, collect tokens and world materials that are currency for the vendors on the different worlds. (Levelling up the vendors is also a highly effective way of getting a higher light, in fact you will need to do this to get past light level 260. - this type of farming can be done along side farming public events, just pick up a patrol mission here and there, keep an eye out for any chests and also any enemies that have a yellow health bar because they drop a chest full of goodies as well)

 

A PRO tip that I learned too late, is to never do a quest that says in the reward section,' Powerful Reward'. - These rewards are either legendary or exotic engrams that give the most powerful weapons or armour in the game, they should only be completely when you are the highest light possible which is about light level 270 before things become too difficult to farm. These items come with a very high light level, sometimes 10 or 20 levels above your current equipment so try to stay away from those quests for as long as possible. 

 

Another useful tip is to always open your legendary/ exotic engrams as soon as you get them. They are already set with a light level when you get them, so saving them for when you get a higher light level doesn't work, best to open them asap so the next drop you get can be one of a higher level. 

 

Legendary shards - Currently only useful for infusing stuff until Xur comes next Friday, nobody knows how many shards we need for guns/ armour in the shop but its best to dismantle any legendary you get that you don't need or have duplicates of. No point stocking up on legendaries this early in the game, especially when your light level is always rising. 

 

Glimer - caps at 100,000. Currently has no use once your into late game (light level 240+)

 

Heroic Events: 

 

 

I will periodically update this post when I learn of new things within the game, if anyone has any tips they have learned then please feel free to share them, we are all a community and learning together is always better!
