    I just hit 20 on my first character, and I have Vanguard rank 1 so I was going to try farming up enough marks to get my class armor, but I'm only at 39 marks.


    I was going to try this when I got home but I'm wondering if anyone else has any other mark-farming experiences that they found particularly enjoyable.

    Nice.

    Level 20 here hoping to complete the storyline tonight with the farming to start soon after.

    Will give this a try over the weekend. Want that Legendary armor to be sure.

    Also on Venus there are 2 spots i have found that you can go and get decent loot / spirit bloom needed for farming items to del for vanguard or weapon upgrades later on for exotic gear ..

    Ember Caves (go left at patrol spawn) ....until you see NPC's on left and blue lava on right .. heaps of little caves around that area run around in and out of each several times as chests or locations change and you should get plenty of loot / bloom also bloom in same area on plants ..

    Ishitar Commons (Go right at patrol spawn )... Go to the stair cases that lead to blue underground cave / tunnel keep going past the Minitor area until you see lots of open area and buildings in a circle around it.. Lot of similar dark rooms and under stairs type areas where loot / bloom appears ..

    For what it's worth: the award you get each day for the first "gold tier" participation in a public event is once per day per character, so this list might be useful for that if nothing else, said the man with two level six characters with motes of light and ascendent shards.

    Work in progress timer based on publically available information... Still very handy!

    If anyone comes across a Public Event not on this site, please post the details to his Reddit thread so we can get more listed there.

    Or if you want to keep them to TOG, post them on our private forum on the Destiny site since we don't currently have one here.

    Seems to be a work in progress as well. Noticed events are out of sync with the site timings. I'll see what the timing difference is today when I take a run through Destiny.

    At this rate I would prefer to do the Strikes.

    It's missing a couple of events. I'll add the the reddit later.

    Best legendary farming for me is the crucible. If you equip a class item for one of the three factions ( new monarchy, dead orbit, future war cult) all rep gained goes to them. In saying that I have 2 or 3 spots where you can farm glimmer and engrams, most are well known (google).

    So I smash out my vanguard bounties for around 500 or so rep a day dependent on bounties offered, then do the crucible ones. You can potentially get around 1000 or so rep a day, again dependent on bounties offered. Makes reaching level 2 for weapons very easy.

    You use crucible marks for purchasing items, so you need to Pvp.

    Otherwise level 24 strikes on loop.

    My experience with Crucible was seesawing between fun and frustrating the first two or three days, like PVP always is for me, but then by the first weekend after launch it was "murdered by some level 26+ guy with a named weapon who I didn't even see before I died, because he was crouching around a corner or in a spot I didn't even know about."

    And I understand I can get legendary rewards *anyways,* even if my team loses and I'm at the bottom of the scoreboards, but if I can choose between sucking at PVP and doing some kind of PVE where I have at least a little fun, I'd rather farm Vanguard marks.

    I agree. Not good at PvP so I stay in the farming events in PvE.

    Amen to that, though I still do the PvP for something different on occasion.

    Yep. I did a PVP match the other night and when it ended there was a WALL of loot spam, the entire enemy team (all 6), who got crushed 20k to 3k got the exotic auto rifle Hawkmoon and legendary engrams.

    What did we get on the winning team? Nothing, literally nothing. :rolleyes:
