Preparing for Rise of Iron

  • Get your currencies and materials as high as you can
  • Get as much reputation with each of the factions and vendors as you can
  • Owl Sector going on that primarily affects the Crucible. upon killing an enemy with your Super after they’ve killed you with theirs, they’ll pass on any Transmissions tied to them. It’ll give you an experience and reputation boost. There are five different boosts, but they all have the same effect and do not stack. The buffs are Brilliance 3.2, Glory 2.1, Splendor 2.6, Magnificence 2.0, and Fortitude 3.1.
  • Raid, if feasible.
  • Tier 12 – Every Guardian’s armor gives boosts to three stats: Intellect, Discipline, and Strength. When someone explains that their Guardian has a 5/5/2 split, they’re saying they have maxed out Intellect and Discipline, while also unlocking two tiers on Strength. This build is possible in a variety of permutations, such as 2/5/5 or 4/4/4. Sources that can help these include Destiny Item Manager, Ishtar Commander for Apple and Android, and Tower Ghost.
  • Every piece of gear has a percentage of max roll. A bad roll would be a piece of gear that says ‘85-90%’ of max roll. This means that the gear’s potential to get you to tier 12 is very unlikely.
  • What you want is a piece of gear like Dead Orbit’s Heliopause Boots which has a max roll of  96-99% or higher. These stats can be checked using the Destiny Item Manager by clicking on an armor piece and then clicking the drop down arrow on the right for those percentages.
  • Why should you care? Faster cooldown times for grenades and melee is an advantage. Faster cooldown times for your super is an advantage. PvP or PvE.
  • u/Mercules904 has created spreadsheets listing the best baseline armor pieces for each guardian class!
