I keep getting distracted by the patrol zones, need to pull my finger out and finish the story mode at some point so I can get the MIDA.
I was a tad miffed over the server last night as well, 1 night I get free and can't get on :(

Should hopefully be on tonight as well

That's a good excuse to run off to the pub instead then :dance:
Who needs excuses? That's exactly what stopped our joint ascent yesterday! Hit 261 on Saturday night with my Hunter so started a warlock yesterday morning so I didn't overpower the lady's character. Reckon we'll be having a romantic evening on Destiny tonight after a meal - maybe not a raid though.

Also noticed @ColSonders has massively boosted his character over the weekend - think he was around 240 by close of play on Saturday. Not bad at all for a few days' play!

@zoob I'm currently level 265 and have just finished the main story.

The story and the levels are all fairly trivial, you can get a character to level 20 (max level) inside of 4 hours of play and from there it doesn't take a great deal of effort to bring your light level up....i'm told the light level increases will slow down at this point but we'll see.

Edit* And for reference I didn't bother saving things up until I was high level as was suggested by other people.....Anything that isn't exotic can be regained at a higher level anyway.

PS feel free to join us later this evening (after 8pm as servers are undergoing maintenance) - it is our EGX anniversary, after all!

I may do, I have a friend coming round later so depending what time they leave I might not be arsed, I was going to play last night but decided switching the PS4 on required too much effort

I find that leg+ engrams found in the field have a greater chance of providing higher light levels than those offered through reputation. All my blue drops are now 260-265 which seems to be the limit for them

Yeah that's what i'm experiencing now too....that's ok though, getting to 260-265 light is very easy and probably achievable in a couple of long sessions from rank 1 if you go about it the right way.

What's the best way of getting drops in the field? Public Events and Lost Sectors?

A lot of the ones I dropped on Sunday came from a combination of the two. I find either Titan or IO are the best places due to their compact maps especially if you are going to run Publc Events.
