So I have been playing destiny since it came out (with obvious breaks in between) and have been stuck on level 24 for over a week now. I do all the bounties for crucible and vanguard but it seems like I am just not getting anywhere. I quit playing the missions since they aren't as fun after you beat em. Im sorry but maybe im missing something. I just see others of higher rank and cant see where im going wrong. thanks!

You do realise you need light to level up right? I don't think you understand how leveling up works after 20

You need light, not EXP.

You need legendaries. Start doing queens bounties and then do their missions. Also try to have a bunch of marks and a vanguard or crucible rank of 2

I'm a level 24 so I do realize that. I'm just not getting any better armor out of my matches. I was for a while and now nothing. After 24 do you only get better stuff by buying it at the tower?

You can get it from drops, rewards, chests, etc.

The same thing happened to me at 25, you really just have to wait it out until you get lucky enough to get better armor with more light. Try doing the queens bounties and then do the missions for her. You should get some pretty good legendary items from them. Also, don't forget to upgrade your armor when you can because it increases the light they have. I hope that helps and good luck!

^This. Upgrading legendaries can sometimes be a pain, as you have to have a wide range of things from Ascendent Shards to Iron Relics, but it's definitely worth it.

Finally broke 28 a little tip or two, wait on xur before buying anything is step 1, step 2 do the queens bounties for the helm n chest but do NOT upgrade em yet, ste 3 get a team for nightfall weekly two 28s can easily boost you through or even one (have done myself and for 4 friends so far) step 4 at the weekend use your coins to buy the legendary armor and upgrade that. If it's a helm salvage your queens guard one, same if it's a chest. Do not buy the weapons not too important,

Optional steps here farm the treasure cave as long as you can stomach for blue engrams and purples n hope for boots or missing legendary pieces. Focus on the pve bounties and the queens guard that do not involve pvp therefore maximising your time spent :smile:

P.s xclaireybearx is my x1 gtag if you wanna see how I have done things :smile:

Also exotic weapon bountys.... Save em up you don't need to focus them really, most will involve time consuming brain numbing things plus higher light -makes things a lot easier although another little top for anyone

Save up blue or higher fusion rifles and store them (if you ever get a bounty requiring them you will thank me later haha)
