Player character earns experience trough various activities including defeating enemies, looting chests, completing quests, public events.
Maximum level is 20 for vanilla players and level 50 for Forsaken players. After reaching maximum level players continue to earn experience but now maxing out the experience bar each time rewards a Bright Engram / Steadfast Engram (These let you customize the way your character, ship, or gear look, a nice bonus.)
- One of the best ways to get most experience is Heroic Public Events.
- Additionally there are Ghost Shells which provide additional experience while equipped to a specific activity.
