Destiny Update 2.4.1 Will Increase Light Cap and Light Rewards


Most Destiny fans are looking forward to Tuesday’s update, not only because it’s going to increase the Light cap and the Light rewards, but because it’s going to add the Wrath of the Machine Heroic Mode.

Bungie detailed some of the changes update 2.4.1 will bring with it tomorrow. Detailed changes to the Light level and rewards can be seen below:

Maximum Light will be increased to 400. With this increase, many reward sources will also increase their maximum Light. Strike Hoards, Nightfall, Exotic Engrams, Trials of Osiris, Crucible, and Iron Banner will now provide rewards up to 400 Light. Archon’s Forge, the Heroic SIVA Strike playlist, and Legendary Engrams will now provide rewards up to 385 Light. Rare Engrams and the SIVA Strike Playlist will now provide rewards up to 365 Light. The recommended Light for these activities will remain the same with the exception of Nightfall, which will be increased to a recommended light of 380. For those striving to reach Heroic Wrath of the Machine or even attempt their first run at Normal Wrath of the Machine, players should find more paths and options available to them to reach the recommended Light. For players forging their path through Wrath of the Machine, Trials of Osiris, and Iron Banner, these activities will now attempt to reward higher Light on average, compared to your current Light.

Are you excited to try out the Heroic Mode when it drops tomorrow?
