Afaik, the only time you 'have to' wear her gear is if you're running one of her bounties that specifically calls for it. Like today, her 10 Hive kills bounty requires wearing Eric class gear...

I've yet to 'get into' scenes. I grasp the concept, but we really don't use the spaces in ways that have lent themselves to dedicated scenes on buttons. The dilemma is trying to gauge the right...

I never have to log into the bungie app on my tablet, I believe there's a 'remember me' checkbox? If you've got a password with tedious characters you can change to a PC format keyboard on Android. ...

Given the overall cost, the addition of a dimmer and a motion sensor is pretty trivial. I find it helpful to have the ability to set a scheduled event to turn it and other lights off on a regular...

I've had some luck swapping in under-powered armor before selecting the strike. Swap out the armor for green stuff. It'll pair you up with lesser players. Then swap the heavier stuff back on...

THIS. There's more to how the signal is carried that "just wire". This is pretty high frequency/high data rate stuff. Adding splices on any kind of high speed circuit is problematic. Connectors...

I know the perks on the weapons don't change. But I do think I've seen the quartermaster offer different ones over time (since the DLC). Always with the same perks. But I don't go there often...

Bear in mind, you can only have 200 marks total at any one time (per character). That and you can only earn up to 100 per week. So it's best to spend those marks on something before the Tuesday...
