Game Informer recently announced that older legendary weapons and armor from Destiny’s first year will not progress any further. With The Taken King, several new weapons and armor pieces will drop with the new DLC pack in order to “refresh” the game, essentially.
It seems that Year One gear will work pretty good for the first few hours of The Taken King, but new items will quickly replace older weapons and gear. This change also resets gear progression through The Taken King. This means we will be going back to the old tier progression: white, green, blue, purple, and yellow.
I have put dozens, maybe hundreds, of hours into Destiny. I really enjoy the game, but I am tired of grinding gear to just toss it away in a few months when the next DLC pack comes out. What do you think?
