Bungie has kicked out a whole bunch of information for Destiny 2 this week. A great deal of it lies in the recent TWAB post, which offers a pretty comprehensive rundown of changes to Legendary item infusion and a new type of Engram that can have the goodies it offers adjusted before the Engram is even decoded into a fresh piece of loot.
Starting with Season 12, each Legendary weapon and armor piece will have a maximum Power level it can reach through infusion, granting items a year where they’ll be effective for activities. Items earned through the first eight seasons will be infusible up to the Season 11 power cap, while gear from Season 9 through 12 will have the new one year Power caps after their release. If all of this sounds complicated, there will be a visible element when focusing on a piece of gear that tells you an item’s current Power level and it’s maximum Power level, which will be visible starting with the upcoming Season 11.
Season 11 will also introduce a new type of Engram that can have its contents adjusted through the spending of seasonal currency, effectively letting players get what they want. Players will also be able to earn the ability to focus Engrams so they only contain seasonal armor with high-stat packages. Free players will have access to only three focus categories, while Season Pass owners will get access to a full suite of 15. The Engrams themselves will drop from a wide variety of activities and will drop for free players and Season Pass owners.
If you’re among the Destiny 2 players who felt that The Lie community quest and the related Seraph Tower activity were too difficult, then you’ll be happy to note that Bungie has made adjustments. Champions now have a lower power level, event progression has been tuned, and quest progression has been given a 5x multiplier on weekdays and a 10x on weekends.
Finally, if you’re tired of keeping up with all of the upcoming changes hiding in walls of texts within TWAB posts, the folks at the Blueberries.gg community have started to put together an unofficial roadmap with official information, providing release windows and details on what’s coming from season to season.
