Max Power Level Through Infusion

Help_Bnet_D2_Banner_02.jpg

Starting in Season 12, new Legendary weapons and armor will have a one-year span of time (four Seasons total)  that it can reach the Max Power Level through Infusion in Destiny 2, and Legendary gear introduced in previous Seasons will have a Max Power Level at the Season 11 Power Cap of 1,060.

Legendary gear that has reached Max Power Level can still be used in most activities in Destiny 2 that don't rely on a player's Power, such as the Crucible. Legendary gear can also be re-issued in future Seasons with a new Max Power Level, but previously acquired gear won't be updated as a re-issued version.


What is Infusion?

Infusion is a way for players to increase their gear's Power by consuming another piece of gear of the same type.

Players will be able to Infuse gear within an item's details screen. Infusing an item cannot be undone! In the image above, the Current Power of the weapon is 950, the Power Limit (Max Power Level) is 1,060, and the Seasonal Power Cap is 1,060.

Gear from Seasons 1-8

Legendary gear released in Seasons 1-8 will have a Max Power Level at the Season 11 Power Cap of 1,060. If this gear tries to Infuse gear from Season 12 and beyond the gear will still only be able to reach the Max Power Level of Season 11.

Gear from Season 9 and Beyond

Legendary gear released in Season 9 and beyond will be infusible to new player Max Power Levels for one year after their release (four Seasons total).


Watermark Updates

Legendary gear watermarks connected to the Season or Expansion they were introduced in will be updated to reflect when that gear can and can't reach a Season's Max Power Level. Watermarks appear in the corner of a gear's icon or details screen.

Legendary gear that previously didn't have a watermark will be given one retroactively, notably gear from Season 1.
Weapons and armor from live events, such as The Dawning or Festival of the Lost, will no longer use event watermarks. Instead, they will use the Season or Expansion watermark they were introduced in.

Able to Reach Max Power

When Legendary gear is able to reach a Season's Max Power Level, the watermark will be white with a dark shade behind it.

Not Able to Reach Max Power

When Legendary gear can't reach a Season's Max Power Level, the watermark will be black with a light shade behind it.
