- Reaching Level 20 quicklyTravel to the Tower. Go to the bounty board, and accept the following bounties:
- “Death Or Glory: Successfully complete 5 Clash Matches” or “Domination: Successfully complete 5 Control Matches””Forged In Fire: Win 3 Crucible Matches””Shaking The Pillars: Defeat 25 Titans in the Crucible” or “The Wild Hunt: Defeat 25 Hunters in the Crucible”
These bounties can easily be obtained by playing five Clash or Domination matches. Once you have completed the bounties, return to the bounty board, and turn them in. Accept more “defeat bounties,” such as “Throw Down: Defeat 20 Guardians with your melee attack.” Then, go to the Crucible, and select Rumble mode. This is the easiest game mode to obtain 25 kills and melee kills. When you have no more bounties left to obtain, just keep playing Rumble mode repeatedly. You will earn 1,800 XP just for participating in the match, regardless if you are first or last. Note: The better the players, the quicker the game will end, giving you faster XP per hour. So do not avoid good players. The average time it takes for a rumble match to end is 7 minutes.
- Easy XPIn Old Russia (Level 4-10), start the Cosmodrome Patrol. Summon the Sparrow, and take the left path to reach the Forgotten Shores. Enter the shipwreck area straight forward from the entrance. Jump onto the deck, and kill the enemies. Then, go to the back of the ship, and jump onto the crate to reach the platform above, where you can jump onto the landing around the smokestack. While standing on the smokestack, a group of enemies will spawn below. Use grenades, rockets, and special abilities to quickly kill them. Once they have all been defeated, simply climb back up onto the smokestack to make the enemies spawn again. Repeat this process as many times as desired. If you are below Level 10, you should gain levels with approximately 10-20 minutes of farming XP using this method.During the “Sword Of Crota” mission (Level 7-14), you will get a powerful sword weapon that kills all enemies, except the Swarm Princes, with one hit. In the last room of the dungeon, grab the sword, and kill all enemies with it until only the third (and final) Swarm Prince remains. Let it kill you to start back at the beginning to fight all the enemies again. Repeat this process as many times as desired. Make sure to not kill the final Swarm Prince or else you will not be able to use this method any longer. Killing the Swarm Princes yield good XP, and killing each wave of enemies is very easy with the sword.
- Easy glimmerDisassemble gear you are no longer using at the inventory menu to remove the item from your inventory and be rewarded with some glimmer and materials.To earn extra glimmer in combat, use Ether Seeds. They are dropped randomly by defeated enemies, and increase glimmer drops from enemies for 10 minutes. Make sure to use Ether Seeds while farming for glimmer.Once you reach Level 4, start the “The Warmind” mission, and proceed to the end of the mission where your Ghost interacts with the Warmind. Before interacting with the objective, use an Ether Seed to increase the amount of glimmer you will earn. Waves of Hive enemies will appear. Kill them until the large final Boss appears. Let one of the final enemies kill you. Then, try to leave a different Hive enemy alive so you can kill the Boss instead to get better rewards each time. There is no penalty for dying, and you will spawn back at the checkpoint. Let the last enemy kill you, then keep repeating as many times as desired. Once the Ether Seed effect ends after 10 minutes, use another one. Use this method to get approximately 1,000 glimmer every 10 minutes.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN4nStgXCtA
Once you reach Level 14 and can travel to the Moon, start the “Shrine Of Oryx” story mission. Set the difficulty to “Hard” or higher. When you are in the area where the Ghost says “There’s the Shrine! Find a way through!”, kill the approximately 7 to 9 Hallowed Acolytes (with yellow bars) in the large room with a pit to your left to get 45 glimmer for each one killed. It is found after two combat rooms and two large tube hallways. Once you have defeated the Hallowed Acolytes, jump into the pit on the left to instantly die, then repeat the process as many times as desired. There is a checkpoint immediately before this room. Follow the ramp up, and defeat the first group of Hallowed Acolytes, then jump down to defeat the second wave of Hallowed Acolytes. Use grenades and Super Charge to kill them more quickly. Ignore the Ogre and Dregs to kill all the Hallowed Acolytes within a few minutes. Use this method to get approximately 4,000 glimmer every 10 minutes.
- Easy legendary and rare EngramsSelect the “Patrol” mission on Earth, and reach the “Skywatch – Old Russia” area. Go to the area near the crashed spaceship. There is a cave nearby where enemies continuously spawn. It is recommended to do this with at least one other player. Stay far enough back so enemies keep respawning. Keep shooting the enemies before they leave the cave. You can farm a lot of blue, and occasionally purple, Engrams by doing this for a long period of time. The Engrams will not disappear. If you do not collect a blue or purple Engram, it will be mailed to you. You can collect them at the post office in the Tower. It is recommended to do this for at least 15 minutes before collecting the loot so the process is not slowed by continuing to collect loot often. You do not have not worry about someone else collecting your loot, as you are the only one that can collect your loot. If there are a few people already shooting enemies in the cave when you arrive, you can actually just stand near them while they do the work and get the same amount of loot and XP. However, make sure you stay activate every few minutes or you will be kicked from the game and returned to space. Note: If the enemies stop spawning in the cave, make sure someone is not standing too close to the cave and there are no nearby enemies.Start “The Dark Beyond” Moon mission at any level, and proceed to the temple cutscene where the large Hive door opens after the three seals disintegrate. A checkpoint will then be triggered, and a large swarm of Hive Thrall and Knight will come out from the other side of the door. Kill the Thrall, but do not kill the Knight. The Knight has a higher chance of dropping Engrams, but defeating it will trigger a new checkpoint. Instead, use grenades or class abilities to kill all the Thrall, then let the Knight kill you. You will respawn along with all the enemies. Repeat this process as many times as desired. The Thrall will drop Engrams and gear, and they will occasionally produce a legendary drop. Try collecting as many legendary Engrams as possible. Rare Engrams are useful for finding gear to break down and earn extra materials to help you unlock perks on Legendary gear. Earning lots of Engrams will also increase your Cryptarch level, giving you access to better Engrams daily. Since your inventory will quickly fill up, make sure to dismantle unwanted gear between killing the Thrall. This method will also earn a lot of glimmer, and is a good way to unlock Motes Of Light and Strange Coins to use with the special Exotic vendor Xur, Agent Of The Nine, in the Tower.
- Easy Vanguard MarksMarks can be earned at Level 18 and higher for completing Daily Heroics, Public Events, Strike Playlists, Vanguard Bounties, and Weekly Strikes. You get 4 Vanguard Marks for each Public Event completed. To easily earn 24 Vanguard Marks per hour, travel around the Cosmodrome in the “Earth: Old Russia – Patrol” mission. Go to the indicated locations at the listed times (each Public Event listed below has a 30 respawn counter) to participate in the corresponding Public Event. Note: It is easier to complete these Public Events with a full fireteam, but they can be completed solo.
- 1. The Divide – Devil Walker Public Event; Spawn Timer: :15 / :45 past the hour2. The Mothyards – Random Public Event; Spawn Timer: :30 / :00 past the hour3. Forgotten Shores – Fallen Captain Public Event; Spawn Timer: :10 / :40 past the hour
- Getting exotic gearYou have a random chance to get exotic weapons and gear (rarest and most powerful in the game) by playing matches in the Crucible, but it is not guaranteed you will actually receive any exotic gear. You are guaranteed to get exotic gear from a special vendor and bounties. There is a special vendor named Xûr, Agent Of The Nine, that appears in random areas around the Tower, but only at specific times. He only seems to appear during weekends so far. Unlike other vendors, Xûr sells exotic weapons and items, and his supplies update often. However, the cost of the weapons and items use a different currency. His normal rates for exotic weapons and items cost the following amounts:
- Exotic armor: 13 Strange CoinsExotic weapon: 23 Strange CoinsExotic Engram: 23 Motes Of Light
The following are some ways to earn Strange Coins:
- Earn 1 Strange Coin for completing the “Scourge Of Winter” Venus mission.Earn 3 Strange Coins for completing Weekly Heroic Strikes.Strange Coins randomly drop for completing Strikes.Strange Coins randomly drop in Gold Tier Public Events.Strange Coins randomly drop for completing Crucible matches.Strange Coins randomly drop from loot chests.Strange Coins randomly drop from Blue Engrams (Level 18+ only).
Motes Of Light can only be earned post-game at Level 20+. One is rewarded for completing the campaign, but the rest can be earned randomly by completing Crucible matches and Strikes, earning Gold Tier on Public Events, and opening loot chests.
There are also exotic bounties. They are unlocked by gaining new bounty leads as they appear in your mail. It is currently unknown if exotic bounties are triggered by completing bounties or finishing events. Successfully complete an exotic bounty to guarantee unlocking exotic gear. Note: Each exotic bounty has several objectives to complete, which can be quite time consuming and difficult.
- Refilling ammo for freeOnce your primary weapon’s ammo reaches 0, simply remain idle for approximately 45 seconds for your primary weapon’s ammo to refill, along with some special and/or heavy weapon ammo.
- Ranking up gear quicklyGear drops at the following rarity levels: basic, uncommon, rare, legendary, and exotic. Any gear above basic will often have perks you can purchase once a certain XP level has been reached. Like gaining levels, weapons and armor will eventually unlock new upgrade options. XP is shared between equipped gear and your level. Thus, gaining 500 XP toward your next level will also gain 500 XP toward ranking up an equipped weapon or piece of armor. However, weapons and armor usually require much less XP to rank up compared to leveling up. Before using the following method, make sure the gear you want to upgrade has abilities attached to it. While hovering over a weapon or armor piece, grayed out abilities will appear below the regular stats if there are abilities you can upgrade. Press Y to view the upgrades that are available on the gear. Before turning in bounties (Crucible bounties recommended), equip the gear you want to rank up, then turn in the completed bounties to get the XP from the bounties added to your level and equipped gear.
- Entering the Vault Of Glass raidThe Vault Of Glass is the first raid available in the game, and was added after Destiny was released to give high level players more to do. Raids are special co-op missions that require six players. The Vault Of Glass is available on Venus at Level 26. To start the Vault Of Glass raid, you must open the doors to the vault by having a player stand on each of the three Vex pressure pads in the opening chamber to summons a spire. To activate a pad and begin constructing the spire, one player needs to stand in the circle for several seconds. Once a pad is activated, Vex will begin spawning and assaulting the three plates. If an enemy gets inside the circle, you will begin to lose spire building progress. A good way to defend all three pads at once is to have three teams with two players each. Have one player stay inside the circle while the other player defends it. The Minotaurs are the biggest challenge. Save heavy weapons and overcharge abilities to quickly kill them. Once the spire is complete, a laser will fire into the vault doors to open them.
- Moving faster in TowerWhile in the Tower, start sprinting. After a few steps, start jumping to speed up your momentum. When you land, jump again. Keep jumping while landing to keep your momentum, allowing you to travel more quickly in the Tower compared to running.
