I though legendaries dropped up to 280? I have definitely had them drop at more than 265.

According to their Twitter account they have issues with the authentication servers.

Caved in and bought it for the PS4 Pro yesterday. After about 6 hours in, i just got flattened with buyer's remorse lol

I was a huge Destiny fan through most of the D1 life cycle, but I just couldn't mesh with it again after having my expectations raised by Warframe so much.

I'm keen to see the new story play out, but I really feel like I'm choring my way through currently.

Haha man after re-discovering Warframe other month, i know what you mean. Gameplay feels SLOOOW in comparison. I still main WF and play d2 when i can. Apparently the raid is really interesting

Power level 270 now and its getting harder to move up. Time to finish off world quests than move on to an alt. Will have to do nightfall & raid at some point then I can put this to bed, until I do it all again on PC

Find a few people to play with, vastly improves the game. Even the campaign is way more fun co-op.

I found getting to 285 fairly easy. Just play the game. There is a bit of a block at 265 where blues stop dropping higher, but that seems to go away after 270, and I just bridged it with milestones.

Once you hit 280, you can burn glimmer to make legendary mods which give +5 to everything. I'm pretty much stuck now though until the weekly reset.

They do from luminous engrams and the powerful loot rewards from weekly activities. Regular legendries drop up to 265, sometimes they can have a legendary mod in there taking them to 270. All exotics have a legendary mod in them.

imo the best and most efficient way to level when lower is Public Events. all you need is at least 1 other team mate, make them heroic, heaps of loot. yesterday i went from 204 - 239 very, very easily.

i am getting bored a bit quicker though. it looks great, has great concepts etc but it really does feel like its the same game patched to how we always wanted it, rather than full blown sequel. i just cant shake that atm. will probably still get on PC, i cant fukn stand PvP in Destiny but maybe back with the old m+kb might feel better. my internet is pretty terrible anyway but yeah, hated it since D1 too.

I'm loving the current crucible. Is more balanced and tactical than the old whack a mole, one shot kill crucible from D1. Consistently having fun games, with most ending up pretty close.

Slowing it down while keeping moment speeds high means people can get in and out of engagements easily, which makes outplaying your opponent more of a factor.

At 273 power level at the moment. In an effort to get some powerful gear from the current weekly bonuses I finally played some crucible. It's okay. Playing it through with the sound off watching Netflix on a second screen made it fun I will have to start on an alt once I get the weekly bonus for crucible.
