It will be granting items a year where they’ll be effective for activities. Items earned through the first eight seasons will be infusible up to the Season 11 power cap. Gear earned in Season 9 through 12 will have the new one year Power caps after their release. If all of this sounds complicated, wait to hear the rest. There will be a visible element too.
