comment What are the different currencies and how are they earned?
Another one, although it is sort of covered, for the first public event you get a gold tier rating on each day, you get 2 Vanguard marks from the postmaster with your ascendant reward. Also the weekly heroic is a guaranteed 9 strange coins if you complete it set to level 28. You can also get a random amount (I've seen 8, 10, 15) of strange coins from the weekly nightfall.

@SpaceBison Yes pretty much, and that's RNG for you.

comment Number of Exotic Bounties
@redsirius that's not true in my experience, sounds like you've just had bad luck

You also have a chance (I'd say 25% or less, based on experience) of getting ascendant materials for getting gold completion on public events beyond the first one a day.

comment Does your equipment/weapons degrade?
I've never noticed this on my titan.. does logging out and back in restore the degradation? I feel like it would be noticeable by now since I've been wearing mostly the same legendaries for about a week now.

comment Destiny drop outs
Hm I actually experience this yesterday, but only once. I'd try posting on bungie.net if you haven't already. Maybe someone there can get it to the right people to help you diagnose the issue.

comment Destiny drop outs
There were server issues on Saturday that probably caused this. Around 2pm EST? Lizard Squad claimed responsibility but the servers were back up within a half hour or so.

comment Does the level of the Cryptarch affect its chances of de-coding engrams into rarer items?
@Colin Ah ok, that's what I thought you meant at first, but then I saw 27 and recognized that as a common character level which prompted my second comment.

comment Can you get Class Specific Armor for other classes?
Purple/Exotic Gear Engrams usually say (Random Class) under what they can decode into, so not very surprising.

comment Is cross-platform (not cross-generation) play possible in Destiny?
I think the section you quoted applies to cross-generation, not cross-platform. The reason you can't play between markets is due to Microsoft's policies on the matter.

Oh and I'm Level 27, I don't think your level makes a difference. However I don't get green engrams anymore, just blue or higher. Greens drop as items.

comment When are Motes of Light awarded after level 20?
I believe it to be a fixed amount, although I am not sure if there is a way of determining how much experience is needed.
