    Have you spent glimmer on upgrades?

    Weapons or Armor.

    I have to say so far I'm holding onto all my glimmer but not sure if that is just making it more difficult to play the game.

    What are others doing.

    At 20+ glimmer becomes trivial, I'm finding it hard to spend it before I cap out lol

    18000 glimmer and nothing to spend it on at this stage. Just bear in mind guys, its an MMO, so things can change :)

    i am on 20K glimmer and same i cant spend due to vanguard rep being too low .. i am doing patrols etc.. and mission for materials which gives me more money and not a lot of rep .. bonus was i picked up a exotic gauntlet as a nice result ..

    If you have too much glimmer buy green or better gear from the cryptarch to level him. You'll get mailed engrams as he levels and very often they'll be legendary ones.

    Upgrade everything green, even if you intend to demolish it - you'll get more weapon parts / armour materials, which will be used to upgrade blue weapons later. Typical blue weapon upgrade costs 16 weapon parts, un-upgraded green gives 1 on demolish, fully upgraded gives 3.

    I'm only upgrading blue items if they cost glimmer only (typically the first one is 'free'), then buying upgrades if they actually benefit me at the time. I think the best bet is to save mats for level 18 / 20 rares, as these will be your stopgap until legendaries.
