Destiny 2 has almost been out for a week and so far every gamer out there has been working hard to assure they are high enough power level in order to tackle the upcoming Leviathan Raid. Up to now, the level requirements for the raid has been a mystery, well actually, most of the raids content and features is a complete secret. Bungie takes raids very seriously and this time around they do not plan on releasing a trailer, or even a small clip of the raid before it goes live tomorrow night. This is an obvious move to avoid any spoilers.
What is a Destiny Raid?
If you are a newcomer to Destiny and have no idea what a raid is, never fear. Raids in Destiny are 6-player activities that see you complete massive battles across an area revolving around the current Destiny story. Raids are broken up into portions and each one has a boss and a set mechanic you need to complete in order to get your rewards and move onto the next area.
These mechanics are always different and each raid focuses on an all-around feature. Example, The Will of Crota in Destiny was all about swords, while the Taken King was all about buffs you had to pick up. In the end, you fight hard enemies, get the rarest and strongest gear, and prevail as true Guardians.
Destiny 2 Leviathan Raid
The Destiny 2 raid is a few hours away as Bungie plans to unlock it at 20:00 tomorrow and let players venture into a whole new area. Very little is known about the activity but I reckon we will be heading into the Leviathan, a massive planet-eating ship to stop the mad Emperor Calus from using it to consume Nessus. If you have been playing Destiny you would know that you have to be a specific power level to enter the raid and The Leviathan Raid's minimum requirements have been set at 260 power.
While the raid is 260 power, Bungie does suggest that you range from 260-280 and if I know anything from Destiny it is that 280 would probably be the final area of the raid as it does increase in difficulty as you progress through it. I would personally suggest you be at least 270 and above in order to try the raid.
- When: 13 September @ 20:00
- Recommended Power Level: 260 – 280
If you are not ready for the raid then never fear, the raid resets once a week on a Tuesday so you have until next week to give it a bash and try to get as far as you can. Even if you get the first few parts done you will get some good gear which will then boost your power for next week. If you are looking for ways to boost your light then take a look at our top 10 things to do after the main game as these activities all yield high-powered rewards.
