One of the main complaints about the new season of Destiny 2 content is that it’s simply gated off from far too many users. The complaints rolled in soon after launch, as a light level of 610 for new Lost Forges activities meant that many simply couldn’t even start them. If you wanted to play them, you’d have to grind old content to get up to spec.
While that was the intent to make this an end game activity, Bungie have dialled that back a bit with a server-side tweak to bring it more in people’s reach.
Over the past day, we’ve been taking in your feedback. It’s become clear that we made the initial Power requirements for the Lost Forges too high, keeping those sweet new rewards out of reach. Some players at 600 Power have been unable to dive in and beat the final boss without grinding for new Power first.
We have just delivered a server-side update to reduce the Power requirements for all the encounters in the Lost Forges by five. We fully acknowledge that this is a small move, but it is the one that we can make today. This is not the full extent of the changes to the player experience that we are investigating, but it should give Guardians at 600 Power a better chance at completing the activity.
Also, here’s another little gem from Bungie’s QA department for those partaking in the new Blind Well public activity:
We have identified an issue with matchmaking within the Blind Well. As a workaround while we work on a fix, players are advised to enter the Blind Well slowly via the right side hallway while hugging the wall.

So there you have it. Go slow and hug a wall, guardians.
