Light Level 400 - Ghosts And Artifacts
Ghosts and Artifacts in Light level 400 might not be manageable to obtain from the looks of it. Even so, they will be dropped in between Engram decryptions. As of the latest update, Archon's Forge drops both Light level 400 Ghosts and Artifacts. Finishing Strikes or faring Crota's Bane Faction also drops Artifacts, while Faction rewards drops Ghosts.

Strike spawns a good amount of drops according to your current Light level. Every pair of Strikes on the average helps you move a notch higher. Even if Strike diminishes worth when surpassing Light level 385, Exotic Engrams are still in working order. For now, prevent from doing the Omnigul exploit to increase your Light level as it still under construction, which Bungie should announce updating very soon.
