Since I have finally made level 20 it’s time to focus on this uber gear.
It looks like the only way to earn Vanguard marks is through the 3-man Strikes, correct? So the only means of earning “solo” marks is through the Crucible? And you can spend those Crucible marks on individual faction gear if you choose to equip the class item?
I’m just trying to understand why I would want faction gear.
As a Titan, it looks like the Vanguard armor available to this class is focused on Strength; every available piece has STR on it with a healthy balance of either INT or DIS on each piece. Seems like you can have a very balanced character if you pick this gear, or just choose STR/INT or STR/DIS. I can’t see the other classes’ Vanguard gear so I assume that Hunter gear focuses on DIS and Warlock gear has INT.
For the Crucible armor, all the pieces have DIS on them. Again, these seem to have a balance of STR or INT.
New Monarchy gear is all INT & STR. There is zero DIS on any piece available.
Dead Orbit is DIS & STR.
Future War Cult is INT & DIS.
Generally, I prefer balance. I like throwing punches, I like my super, and I like tossing grenades. Of the three I guess I like grenades the least, so maybe I’ll take that into consideration when choosing gear and look a little harder at New Monarchy.
I’m curious if anyone else looked at the stats available on the gear before choosing? Do you focus on just 2 stats or have a balance of all 3?
