So, now that Rise of Iron is out, here are a few steps to help you reach a max light of 385! This guide will start with the Taken King quests then lead into Rise of Iron!
1. Complete all the Taken War quests.
2. Farm Taken War Strikes!
3. Use three of coins(obtainable from Xur for 7 strange coins) to get extoic engrams!
Once you reach light level 300 you're just about ready to complete some endgame content! These next steps will help you reach 320!

4. Always have three of coins active!
5. Rank up factions
6. Farm Court of Oryx!
Depending on how RNG treats you, your light level should be around 334 and 335 if you complete all the steps I listed!
Once you reach light level 330+ you are ready to start Rise of Iron record book! To active the record book, go to progress tab in the menu and unlock the book!
To help you reach light level 365, and become raid ready you should...

2. All the rare engrams you receive, decode them at the tower/ Felwinter peak!
3. Complete patrol missions and Archon Forge!

To increase your light to 385 complete the raid every week, complete weekly nightfall strikes, rank up factions, and complete heroic strikes and use Skelton keys to open the chests at the end! It will take time to reach 360-385 so please do not expect to reach those light levels in 1 play session! Over time as light level increase, I will continue to update this guide!
