Use Old Raids to Quickly Level Factions



Source: Reddit

Run Vault of Glass or Crota's End with a fireteam, get all the chests (even hard mode no-teleport Templar). It's now super easy for anyone with previous raid experience and a high light level.

1. Save up a few completed bounties.
2. Do both raids. (each completed in under two hours)
3. Use bounties to upgrade all your weapon/armor drops, then dismantle for shards AND motes. (even use a few motes to upgrade multiple weapons at once. it's worth it)
4. Convert all your energies to shards at the speaker.
5. Convert all your shards to motes at the speaker.
6. Trade in all your motes at faction.

Using this method, you should be able to grind your factions way faster than strikes or crucible. And you can also do this with each character.

VAULT OF GLASS:
- Boots 3 shards
- Arms 2 shards
- Head 2 shards
- Praedyths Revenge 5 energy
- 7 energy
- 22 shards
Total VoG = 41 shards/energy

CROTA'S END: 
- Abyss Defiant 4 energy
- Word of Crota 4 energy
- Chest piece 2 shards
- 31 energy
- 16 shards
Total CE = 57 shards/energy

TOTAL BOTH RAIDS ONE CHARACTER 98 SHARDS/ENERGY!

That's almost 50 motes - which is 1000 rep, in under 90 minutes!

Highlights:
- Hope for weapons over armor - weapons yield more energy than gear with shards.
- You definitely want to dump in your bounties into these items, and a few motes too (it's worth it for weapons, not gear)
