Bungie Plans to Double Required XP in Destiny 2

Bungie Plans to Double Required XP in Destiny 2

So much for any good intentions.

We recently reported on Bungie's changes to the EXP gain in Destiny 2. They had originally given it diminishing returns on repeatable events. After a public outcry, they disabled the diminishing functionality. While this seemed like an act of good faith, a statement by Bungie's Help Twitter has proven otherwise.

The Destiny 2 API has yet to be adjusted to reflect the recent in game change to earned XP. We are working on an API update to address the discrepancy. The correct value to earn an additional level is 160,000 XP.


This has essentially nullified the time an effort previously saved by removing the diminishing returns. With a little math, it's discovered that those who participate in the daily repeated events for EXP will overall reduce their time needed to grind by 6%. However, those who don't, such as players who play infrequently, will suffer the greatest from this change.

It's become clear that Bungie has been doing damage control over these EXP changes, instead of genuinely wanting to improve the game's level of enjoyment. Regardless of their intent, these recent events have soured many gamer's opinions of the game as well as their desire to play it.
