Trying to hit max Power before jumping into the Destiny 2 Eater of Worlds raid tomorrow? Join the club.
The Destiny 2 Eater of Worlds Raid arrives on December 8, and we’re here with some tips on how to reach 335 Power level before you take things on, as part of our Destiny 2 guide.
Sure, you only need to be at level 29 with 300 Power in order to descend into the bowels of the Leviathan, but being at max Power can only help.
Let’s get you leveled to 335 shall we?
Destiny: 2 Curse of Osiris – Six Tips to Help You Get to 335 Power Level
If you have been playing Destiny 2 regularly, you should be around power 300-305 going into the Curse of Osiris DLC. If you aren’t even close to hitting 300 Power just yet, stop reading right now and head over to our Destiny 2 leveling guide page. Following the steps outlined will help you tremendously, so that you can continue on with the five steps below.
From here, completing the Curse of osiris campaign missions, Public Events, Adventures, and Strikes are an easy source of XP and level-appropriate loot. You’ll receive plenty of 300+ drops without Legendary mods, so go ahead and infuse these into your modded gear for an easy 5 Power boost.
You should find yourself around Power 310 or 311 at the end of this process, without making any special effort. Nice.
2: farm Exotic engrams
As always, Exotic drops are level-appropriate, which makes them a great source of infusion fuel to bump up Legendary gear.
You’ll score one guaranteed Exotic during the Curse of osiris campaign – the Cult of Aeon gauntlets for your class – and after that you can begin farming Exotic engrams in Public Events. Use a Fireteam medallion, available from Eververse, to increase your engram drop rate.
This should help push you through the 310 softcap and into 320 territory, but there are ways to speed the process up, as outlined below.
3: work on those Milestones
As a reminder, Destiny 2’s weekly Milestones award Luminous engrams, which means they always drop at a good, high Power. If you can, you always want to save all your Milestones up until you have brought all your gear up to your current drop level, then complete a Milestone, grab a Luminous engram, increase your drop rate, and repeat the process.
There are five Destiny 2 Milestones you can easily obtain: the Flashpoint, Raid, Crucible, Clan XP and the new Heroic Strikes milestone. While you will want to save the majority of these to when you’re pushing into 320 Power, completing one of those Milestones while you’re levelling from 310 Power can help push you through the wall.
Remember: the Engrams you acquire through Milestones will scale to your Power level. So if you use them later on instead of right away, you will reach a higher Power level, faster.
4: use alt characters
While creating multiple Destiny 2 characters isn’t for everyone, it helps. For example: while completing the Curse of Osiris campaign on your second character won’t reward you again with the another pair of Exotic gauntlets, it will reward you with a powerful, level-appropriate Legendary engram to help you along towards the new cap.
Considering the DLC campaign is only around two hours long, it’s a short span of time to spend on acquiring an item to help you out in the long run. Plus, if there are Exotic weapon quests you haven’t completed on secondary characters in the base Destiny 2 game (such as The Rat King), you will find the drops will be on par with the current Power level, providing another little boost.
5: Curse of Osiris Weapon Forge
In the Lighthouse social area – previously only accessible by achieving a flawless victory in the Trials of Osiris – you can trade in consumable materials for Osiris-themed weaponry. To start, you have to finish the Curse of Osiris campaign missions, which unlocks the ability to complete adventures on Mercury. When you’ve done that, make your way through the three normal difficulty adventures – this unlocks their heroic versions.
When you’ve finished one of these heroic adventures, you’ll be able to start the steps toward crafting some weapons. IN the Lighthouse, Brother Vance will give you a new item, the Lost Prophecy, Verse 1 – which will eventually turn into a scout rifle. While these weapons handed out upon completion aren’t all that exciting, but they are usual in your ongoing quest to hit 330 Power.
If you’re just getting started with the DLC and aren’t up to speed on things just yet, we show you how to unlock the weapons forge in Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris through a quick guide.
6: do the Leviathan Raid for a guaranteed 335 item
Yes, that’s right. Do the Leviathan raid and you will walk out of it with a nice, max Power drop. Now, with Curse of Osiris, the Power level requirement has been upped to keep the raid relevant – but so have the drops. Completing the raid on normal difficulty will give you a guaranteed 330 item. Throw a mod onto that and you have a max Power 335 item.
The raid will take around around six hours to complete, and it isn’t a cakewalk. Luckily, we have a Destiny 2 Leviathan raid guide ready for your special eye to devour. It’s a complete walkthrough, explains how to defeat Calus, and shows you where all the secret chests are stashed.
If you give the video from Arekkz above a watch, he explains all six steps above in more detail. And of course, our Destiny 2 guide will tell you even more about Legendary Engrams, Exotics, Milestones, the campaign, Adventures and so much more.
The Raid Lair Leviathan, Eater of Worlds goes live tomorrow, December 8, in Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris at 10am PT, 1pm easternET 6pm UK.
