    do you mean you are wearing one of the faction marks? and does wearing that get you rep with them INSTEAD of vanguard rep? or do you still get both?

    Yeah, you'll still need crucible marks to buy anything anyway so you may as well get as many as you can while you can. Plus the drop rate on items is pretty good. I found 2 exotics through the crucible so far and one leg.

    even gathering stuff like spinmetal or spirit bloom can be exchanged for glimmer and marks depending on who you go to - the vanguard Q or the crucible Q but the factions will use crucible marks.

    EDIT: the story missions seem to end at the black garden....that felt so short!

    another tactic is to buy all the engram that the cryptarch has that you can afford so in turn will level him up and get better stuff.

    You get like 2 marks power bundle of 50 materials... Doesn't seem worth it. Also I think all the factions use crucible marks. So it seems like it makes more sense to stick with Vanguard? At least you can do daily heroic missions without psn+ (I think)

    why vanguard? if more groups are using crucible marks wouldn't make sense to go to the crucible quartermaster?

    things like spirit bloom are needed for weapon upgrades.

    I meant, if you no longer want to continue with psn+ then you wont really have an effective way of getting crucible marks?

    also, let me know if you're going to continue playing destiny past the month and you can have my free psn+ trial that came with destiny :thumbup:

    I almost did last week but couldn't defeat the final boss. Ended up doing it with Drizz the other night.

    It would be good if you could do random strikes at harder difficulty than normal.

    You can already do story missions at level 28 if you want more of a challenge.

    I mean the strikes that you can pick next to the crucible menu. It says the strikes are only normal difficulty. Is there a way to change it to say hard?

    Difficulty is just based on level, all it does is makes enemies hit harder and more tanky. It doesn't change AI protocol or anything like that.

    Strike playlist difficulty can't be raised beyond 24 as far as I know unless it's the weekly nightfall strike or the raids.
