Haven't played this for almost a month now, is it still a boring grind fest? What does the upcoming dlc add?
You can now trade marks for materials, so that takes out a lot of grinding. You also get them from bounties and daily/weekly missions too. Exotics no longer require ascendent materials to level up.
New DLC adds new weapons, armor, a raid, a strike, new sparrows, a new vendor and new story missions.
I think I'm going to be perpetually stuck at level 29. I've gotten nearly everything you can get from the raid, except for the gauntlets and the chest piece. Hiding the max level behind RNG was a terrible design decision.
