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! :)

@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... :)

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.

comment Vanilla epic mount value
@Frank: Totally agreed. I wasn't meaning to say that this was a good question, merely that it wasn't about real world money necessarily (and similar therefore is not illegal content as Shaeldon suggests). Your argument for why it is not a good question even if it is just about in game money is valid, especially in light of the linked question (and I would personally be inclined to close this as a duplicate of that if I had the rep).

comment Vanilla epic mount value
@Koviko: I am pretty sure they were soulbound retrospectively since I got myself a tiger that I couldn't ride at the time (didn't have the N.Elf riding skill) but when the change occurred (to remove racial riding skills) I think the mount became soulbound. It is a long time ago though which is why I asked if it was bound since my memory may be faulty. wowwiki.com/Riding (under patch 1.12.1 changes) suggests all mounts are now bind on pickup which I suspect will have been applied to existing as well as newly purchased mounts.

comment Vanilla epic mount value
Is the mount not bound? Also Frank it doesn't say is it worth anything in real world money, he could just as well have meant on the in game auction house...

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)...
