New light players.

Hey guys. I just talked a few of my friends to download the game after about 3 years of not playing. Their characters and gear is all 1350. Are they too far behind to even play? Is there a spark like before to auto level them to soft cap of a dlc? Will they level up at a reasonable rate playing campaign and strikes? Any tips would be appreciated to help them. Thanks everyone

  • [quote]Their characters and gear is all 1350[/quote] 1350 is the starting power level [quote]Is there a spark like before to auto level them to soft cap of a dlc?[/quote] No However, once they have unlocked the HELM, they can access the Gift of the Thunder Gods that will give them gear at a minimum of 1540 (This includes 5 weapons, a full set of armor, a class specific exotic armor and Thunderlord) [quote]Will they level up at a reasonable rate playing campaign and strikes?[/quote] They should be able to increase their power level at a reasonable rate by playing through the campaign, at least that was the case with Witch Queen.

    • There is a chest with non-sunset 1540 gear in the HELM.

    • They should level up fairly easily in all activities it might take abit but i wouldnt say more then a week if played reliably and not splitting between characters. The "spark" thing i think only comes around for major dlc iirc

      • Tell your friends not to play this game if you actually like them.
