Probably won't be on until this weekend, but I might make a random appearance or two during the week (PS4).

I popped on for a few minutes this morning while getting ready for work.  Handed in 12 bounties that I had done in the last couple of days and it shot me up to almost level 38.  Obviously hitting level 40 won't be hard.  This is going to be all about the light gear grind.  I'm not even sure what the point of having levels is at this point.

I feel like if you're waking up and playing a game before work you're probably not considered the 'normal' player Very Happy

LOL, all I did was logon for about 5 minutes to turn those quests in.  Now I'll need to find out if there's a way to exchange all the old materials I had from the original game for glimmer or upgrades to the new stuff.  All those Ascendent Energy and Shards going to waste would suck, lol.

That's interesting though, most talk I'd heard was hoping it'd be a week+ long grind to 40.

Oddly enough that makes me more interested in getting TTK. I won't have a ton of time for grinding just to hit a level req. Tempting...

Definitely not a grind for levels at least.  In the few minutes I was logged in I saw a bunch of people already level 40.  The way they've separated the levels from the light levels makes your actual character level pretty much irrelevant at this point (other than being able to equip level 40 stuff) from what I can tell.   Light has nothing to do with character level anymore.

Yeah, hitting lvl 40 is a breeze. The real trick is getting your hands on the new gear. As of this morning I am lvl 40 with 224 light. Think I am going to focus on the story for now and see what kind of gear I get as a reward but the key will be getting up to level to run Weekly Heroic Strikes and start earning Legendary Marks and sweet loot.

So far I really like everything about the new expansion and exploring the Dreadnaught has been a blast.

I played the story last night and while it's a bit short I have to say I came away with a huge smile on my face.  Will start the gear grind tonight, lol.  I think I ended up at LL 208.  Was kind of weird using greens and blues that were much better than my old exotics/legendaries but such is the way an MMO (ish) game works.

Played some tonight and got my Titan to lvl 40 LL 206. I've got a legendary helm and mark that are 245 and 240 and a legendary ghost shell, but it's only 170. All in all, I'm really liking the changes and at Zac's suggestion I'm saving old legendaries and exotics for perks when running standard crucible and possibly for old raids.

Something to keep in mind if you don't already know is regardless of your normal loadout always have your highest light rated gear possible on while decrypting engrams (and maybe quest rewards, not sure about those).  Drops are now based on your current characters light level so the higher you are the better your drops/engrams will be.  Was able to step myself up to LL 239 last night just running normal stuff.

My gear is not ideal but it's important to get higher and higher level versions more so than it is to try to optimize your character at this point...at least for me.

Also if you get or are working on the "High Level Target" questline there's a bug that doesn't reward the Legendary Marks that it says you are supposed to get.  I found that out the hard way.   Sad

Up to 245 now myself. Story complete and unlocked a bunch of side quests. Now it's time to chase down some of those new quest lines, hit up the new strikes and Court of Oryx. There really is a ton of content outside of just the main quest and the story is more closely tied to all of it. Really loving everything about the new expansion so far.
