Before you dive in to take on the raid boss, make sure you raise the Light level on your controller by equipping Destiny 2 Ghost!
Some of the best Destiny 2 players recommend everything from saving your quests and milestones until you’ve managed to grind your Light level up to 260, to transferring your gear to new characters and playing through the main quest while leveling up a second time to get upgraded loot. One of the most important things to know about Destiny 2 is that the items you loot scale to your current Light score, so the higher your score before you loot, the higher the score of the items you pick up.
