comment What level will your new character on destiny be if you have already completed one or two of them?
Also you can of course pass on gear from other characters through the vault if you actually thought to keep hold of it.

comment How is damage calculated?
I am happy to believe that rate of Fire influences damage since a constant DPS for a given damage rating would make sense which would mean that a faster rate of fire would be less damage per shot. You seem to be additionally saying that anything with a high impact has a lower rate of fire though. I can't check at the moment but are you saying that two guns with the same damage rating and same rate of fire would have different damage per shot if the impact rating is different?

comment Giant in Swap Force not unlocking gate?
My first guess would be they were wrong about giants being needed to unlock them. I'd suggest asking the question "How do I unlock the gate at X" (with a good description of where the gate is) and then you can get confirmation on the steps needed. As it is without knowing the gate in question I suspect people will be hard pressed to be able to tell you what you're doing wrong.

comment What are the different currencies and how are they earned?
I assume things like spinmetal, etc. from the reference to obtaining rep with them. You can use them at a vendor which makes them sort of rep. I wouldn't have thought that ascendant X or parts would be counted as currencies since you can't use them at vendors for anything (though I can see how info on them could be useful but not quite as a response to this question).

@icebat: Interesting. I doubt I'd have even checked but now I will make sure I do! :)

comment What are the different currencies and how are they earned?
@icebat: I assumed that the engrams selected from the same set of items as were potentially on sale from Xur. Have you got a source for that or is it just aneecdotal? Also is the engram always armour or have their been weapon engrams on sale too?

One addition on motes of light is that they can also be spent at the speaker for class items and emblems. Not as practical a use as Xur but for completeness... :)

comment What are the different currencies and how are they earned?
An excellent answer. One slight modification to the last paragraph is that motes of light are used to buy the exotic engram from Xur. Strange coins are still better but motes of light are a slightly more random route to exotics.

comment How can I legally purchase games for an arcade cabinet I'm making?
I don't want to try to resurrect the argument but I do feel it worth pointing out that the link you've provided says that you can copy a game for archival purposes which I personally wouldn't consider sticking it in other hardware and letting people play it to be.

comment Power supply has no light
Or if it was only working for 7-8 days then presumably it is still in warranty in which case you should be able to get a free replacement.

And you don't get much more authoritative than that. ;-)

comment Weekly heroic strike progress
Doing a higher difficulty after a lower only awards you the difference. So hard gives you 9 coins, easy 3. If you do easy then hard you will get 3 for the easy and then 6 for the hard (making 9 total). You will not get 3 for the easy and then 9 for the hard.

comment Why is light level important in Destiny? How does this work?
I'm not sure I agree with the last paragraph. I die much slower on level 4 missions compared to level 24 ones, I'm sure (I'm light 26). Not sure how to test this though...

comment What time zone is used on the Xur timetable?
Its worth noting that this the arrival time is the same time as bounties reset and I think all daily things reset.

comment What time zone is used on the Xur timetable?
GMT and UTC are the same thing (assuming correct usage). It is important to note that this is not the same as UK time though since we have BST in the summer which is GMT+1.

comment Where can I find Majors and Ultras for each species?
Excellent answer. I always cackle when I see the hive one pop up because it is so quick to do. :)

comment World Of Warcraft updates
To confirm what Trent says WoW does work like that (at least used to when I played a couple years back) so just a straight file copy of the folder would do the trick. @Reven: Wouldn't owning the physical media for Mists of pandaria install most of the data or is there that much additional stuff since then?

comment When does the Agent of the Nine appear?
I think this question was working off limited data. I certainly didn't see Xur around anywhere this weekend. Was I just looking in the wrong place or is he not always around (my thought was that while the Queen's Wrath event is on he might be taking the chance to take a holiday)...
