    you CAN upgrade Exotic Year 1's

    Everyone tells me you can't........and some you will never be able to but

    To upgrade a Year One Exotic weapon or piece of armor in Destiny: The Taken King youíll either need to have the weapon in inventory or, if you dismantled it at some point, repurchase it through the blueprint kiosk in the Hall of Guardians.
    Blueprints cost 2,500 glimmer and an Exotic Shard.


    Once you have the item in your possession, you can upgrade it in your inventory screen. Armor costs 125 Legendary Marks and weapons cost 150 Legendary Marks. As anyone playing The Taken King at this point knows, Legendary Marks are hard to come by so upgrade wisely, Guardians.


    Note, not all the perks will remain the same necessarily. Upgrading does make a big difference in the quality of your gear however. Year One exotics are maxed out at 170 attack and 170 defense, whereas Year Two begin with a base of 280 in each category.













    Hereís a complete list of all the Year One exotic gear you can currently upgrade to Year Two stats.
    Weapons

    • Primary weapons: Bad Juju, Hawkmoon, The Last Word, Monte Carlo, Red Death, Suros Regime
    • Special weapons: The 4th Horseman, Invective
    • Heavy weapons: Truth, ThunderlordHunter Armor

      • Helmets: Celestial Nighthawk, Mask of the Third Man, Knucklehead Radar
      • Gauntlets: Donít Touch Me, Young Ahamkaraís Spine
      • Body armor: Crest of Alpha Lupi

      Titan Armor

      • Helmets: Helm of Saint-14, Helm of Inmost Light, An Insurmountable Skullfort
      • Gauntlets: No Backup Plans, Ruin Wings
      • Body armor: Crest of Alpha Lupi

      Warlock Armor

      • Helmets: Light Beyond Nemesis, Obsidian Mind
      • Gauntlets: Claws of Ahamkara
      • Body armor: Heart of the Praxic Fire, Voidfang Vestments, Starfire Protocol

      Thatís it for now, though more Year One exotics may become available for upgrade over time.

    So really you could delete all your yr 1 exotics and it wouldn't matter you can get them all back with 2,500 and a shard (Which you should have from breaking them down). All it takes for the upgrade of an exotic you can is 150 legendary marks.

    I think I'm gonna bust all mine down that aren't on this list.

    So my question regarding this is.... If upgrading existing stuff, will it be maxed out? Also, will it have the new perks? My insurmountable skull fort has new year 2 perks

    Don't know about perks that's a great question!
    @cp434 - I'll show you next time we play. Its easy to explain when you are looking at the exotic weapon kiosk.

    The point - if you HAD one of the exotics in the list above that is approved Year 2. (Truth, Thunderlord, hawkmoon, blah blah) you can go spend 150 legendary marks and have it turn year 2 and use it right there an then - it will be max 290 like all the other exotics you earn.

    So... If I have a maxed out year 1 Truth, have it equipped, then spend the 150 marks to purchase a year 2 version, it'll just upgrade my Year 1 version into a Year 2 with everything unlocked still? Sweet. I'll have to try this out.

    No I believe this is wrong. Not that you can't do this, it'll just leave you with 2 truths. What I heard but haven't looked into its somewhere in the weapon upgrade screen, there's a way to upgrade it to year 2 that way. I think with an exotic shard or whatever

    Something similar to infusing. And I'm an idiot because 2 weeks ago I bought that year 1 exotic engram from xur, got a year 1 truth and dismantled it

    Trek is not right - you will have one single Yr2 Truth that you have to level up. Best 150 I've spent to date. Thing wrecks. and there are very few if any launchers with tracking (I've never seen one). Only that damn helm that makes all rockets tracking that fighting has.

    and yes Xur sells the LEGACY engrams now. Which is only Year 1.

    And note - you will get it at 280 NOT 290.

    I still hold that the Truth is the most effective weapon on 95% of bosses and big fights. The thing is just plain nasty and (besides the helm fool has) is still the only rocket launcher with "tracking" that I've seen or heard about.
