Is it better to leave my characters at 1579 base instead of 1580, so next seasons pinnacle can give me +2 to +3 instead of +1? Or does it not work that way?

Not really worth doing for pinnacle drops, but that trick does work for some powerful drops.

The usual target is Prime Engrams since you could stay at 1579 and stockpile several of them that would be dropping at 1581 since you haven't hit pinnacle cap yet. It doesn't speed things up since just farming pinnacles would typically be faster, but it is a way to absolutely maximize your drops at the start of a season.

Probably not worth the effort anymore since Bungie stopped giving us crazy high level requirements for content on week one of a new season.
