From this interview we've learned:

 

  • Level 30 is the cap
  • AI behavior will get more complex as we level up
  • There will be many updates in the future, most of which will be influenced by the community
  • Beta leveling was accelerated 
  • Beta rare+ item drop frequency was increased

I'm happy Bungie is dropping details. Makes the wait a little easier, for me anyway, hearing some official news/statements. Thanks, Noles!

you're the man Noles. So, how does everyone feel about finding out the Beta was accelerated?

I find this totally incredible.  Especially that new content every day promise.  How can they do that?  Still, I'm not going to fuss.  I totally love the fact that I'm going to buy something that's going to grow and adapt to how people play it.   I like exploring on my own and it made me very happy to hear them talk about tweaking that experience. 

 

They all but admitted on the raids that it's going to take one out of every subclass to make it through.   :)

 

Good article, Noles.  They gave away a lot of stuff.

I kinda had a feeling it was. It'll be great to grind a little harder when the game actually drops. As long as the loot drops aren't ridiculously low like a certain game with a "bazilliondy" guns.

I have a feeling that means daily challenges/events

so it is still a level 20 soft cap, but level 30 with light.

 

I reckon they will raise this during one of the DLC's

lol i loved that game with a "bazilliondy" guns! but yeah, I totally agree. I only played for a few hours and was able to get to level 8 so now that they confirm that it was accelerated I dont feel like we will all be blazing through the game. it will be a nice slow burn :-)

Even if it is, that still makes me feel warm and fuzzy.  It really does give you a sense that you're in a 'real' place.  I've never played a game like that before.

No, that's just the highest level we've seen in videos/screenshots.

i believe i read an another interview (or it might have been a video i saw) where they said the daily content would be along the lines of bosses being randomly inserted at certain points during the day.

 

The weekly ones are more likely to be larger events that would require co-ordination to complete.

 

can't think where i saw/read it but certain it was only last week.

Hopefully itll be a little grind. I need to miss the first week of launch due holidays and i dont wanna see everyone being 20s when i get first online. :)

Daily events in exploring zone will be good i think. Will bring out all the pvpers to the glorious world of Destiny.

 I'm sorry my friend, but I'm getting to lvl 20 day one no matter what has to happen. Lol. I truly plan on playing until I break a finger or something. (By something I mean my wife hitting me or breaking my controller... :( )

 

I am a little sad that the rare item drops in the beta was increased and I still only got one. Lmao. and that was just from leveling up the Cryptarch!

 

Looking forward to getting all kinds of crazy loot from crucible vendors and raids.

Haha I remember that life... Marriage had its perks but video game time was not one of them :P. I took off the day after release and then it's back to work... I will probably never get a block of play time that solid again until the holidays.

I never got a rare item in the beta either though.....

Too bad. I will max out at least one character in the first two days.

I am disappointed to hear that rare item drops are reduced. I don't think I got more than three in the hundred hours I put in.
