Destiny 2 adjusts the power level every season so that players have the incentive to prepare for higher activities such as a new raid or dungeons. A random find now provides information about which power level you could expect in Witch Queen.
What is the power level? The power level is your level, which can be measured by the strength of your weapons and armor. So if you have a complete set of weapons and armor with a power level of 1320, your Guardian will have a total value of 1320.
If you infuse or put on another piece of equipment that has a lower or higher value, your overall rating will vary positively or negatively. The higher your level, the more damage you can deal and the less damage you suffer.
Masks leak possible power cap for Witch Queen
You may also have noticed: If you look closely, you will see that the new masked ball cap from the Festival of the Lost has a different power limit declared than on all other known armor that can be earned.
This power cap is set to 1710 and shows how high Destiny 2 could go with the new expansion “The Witch Queen”. These are only assumptions, Bungie could reject or rewrite this at any time.
What’s so special about it? If you take a closer look at the new possible power cap, it becomes clear that hard grinding awaits you. It is unknown whether Bungie will give you access to higher armor through the new story.
More likely, however, the thought appears that you will get hold of new equipment through the new quests that could at least bring you close to the power cap.
How was it in Shadowkeep and Beyond Light? When transitioning to the new big DLC of Destiny 2, there was also a difference between the two power values. In the last season of Shadowkeep the limit of the values was 1060 and the new value, which was introduced into “Beyond Light”, was 1260.
The seasonal power limit of the current season is 1330, which could be replaced with the new power limit of 1710.
Every Guardian who plays Destiny 2 knows how annoying the grind for individual power values can be. That’s why players have been courting Bungie for a long time. Still, we shouldn’t be too quick to judge. Only time will tell what will and will not come true.
