    So apart from the armor which appears relatively easy. Rep a faction and once you get to the right levels and requirements then buy your armor.

    The Legendary weapons require Crucible Marks. PvP

    The only way to get a Legendary in PvE is to farm for Legendary Engrams?

    No ability to farm and make your own legendary weapon?

    The vanguard quartermaster sells legendary weapons for vanguard marks.

    You also have the ability to find , SpinMetal (Russia) , Relic Iron (Mars) , Spirit Bloom (Venus) , Helium Filaments (Moon)

    These materials can then be exchanged with vendors in the Tower for Glimmer, Vanguard Marks, or Crucible Marks. So as your doing bounties or patrols on the planets always farm these items and get easy Vanguard points / Rep...

    Also on the weekends there is a special vendor doing deals Tower for exotic

    Pretty much you find them everywhere. My Exotic Scout Rifle I got on the way to do a 24 Strike on Venus. Also the engram vendor rep when you get a level with him he gives you a gift in the mail that has a chance to drop legendary engrams. Got my legendary machine gun from that.

    Sure, the Vanguard quartermaster in the hanger sells them, or you can buy an exotic from Xur or you can farm for them.

    Bear in mind that the mats you pick up from planets are also required to upgrade legendary weapons. And legendary weapons have a LOT of upgrade slots!

    Okay what are mats.. AO

    And it seems i am just bypassing this whole Legendary Armour stuff .. I am struggling to get enough Vanguard points so did a few missions on earth , venus to get up rep still just over 1 .. But i ended up picking up some blues and greens and a purple thing to decrypt..

    The purple leg armour turned out to be blue was most upset , then i got a green gauntlet thing turned into Young Ahamkara's Spine Exotic Hunter Gauntlets... Boo Ya and that doubled my light score on that object from 13 to 25 ... Need to find more of these and always pick up stuff just in case you get a good one like i did

    Seems weird that the exotic and legendary guns are weak .. my blue auto rifle out does them on stats and the yellow / purple seems to lack a bit in game ...everything except reload times like your on...

    Short for materials which are used to make things in MMO games. Some gained by salvaging items, farming areas ie. kill drops. and others through collecting ie. stuff laying around or growing on trees.

    I noticed Legendary items have unlockable bonuses which require mats to unlock them. So many of this so many of that. So if your not selling the stuff for Marks to help buy the legendary items I would be collecting them for upgrades to your Legendary.

    People sell stuff. What do you get for them? I have only salvaged them for mats.

    I have noted what people are saying about engram purchasing. I have heaps of glimmer so a little gambling might be in order.

    i think as never watched it closely enough but when i discard armour i get 2 sapphire and 25 glimmer for each piece .. will have to watch closer to be sure ... i tried levelling cryptarch by buying more from him but he doesn't level unless you actually have a piece to decode .. i think you have to strike more or get bosses / NPC's to drop more greens , blues , purples to have him decrypt
