Finally we can!
Quality of life changes are extremely important in Destiny 2. Some are game-healthy, while others can be discarded. However, Bungie is finally adding a feature to the game that players have been waiting for for years. In the latest TWAB, they announced this new feature and other important information.
Starting next week, Tuesday January 24th, all blue weapon and armor drops will automatically turn off and shimmer when above the soft cap. For example, if your Guardian is currently above 1570 Power, any Blues you would normally collect from activities will now be automatically disassembled and converted to Glimmer, saving you the trouble of disassembling them yourself.
This is by far the best and most requested feature that players have been waiting for in years. Blue weapons and armor serve practically no purpose after reaching the soft cap and have always been such a hindrance to constantly dismantle them after each activity.
Blues are only “relevant” when a DLC drops and the power level cap is increased by 100. For example, in a recent Lightfall update post, it was shown that our power level would exceed 1800. Let’s say the peak cap was 1800. If that’s the case, the power cap is 1790 and the soft cap is 1780, which means that once your guardian exceeds 1780 power, blues are no longer needed to increase your power.
This is a great update and we’re excited that it’s finally being released early instead of waiting another month when Lightfall releases. With all these updates so far, it’s safe to imagine that Lightfall could be Destiny 2’s best DLC drop yet.
