New 26 level strikes

Was playing the level 26 strikes last night to max out my Warlocks vanguard marks and hit 5 legendary drops in about 2 hours. Two of them gave shards, one was a new 33 level Titan chest piece, a new 33 level Hunter chest piece and a new higher damage scout rifle. If this is the drop rate in the new 26 strikes I know where I'll be getting my marks at.

Nice.  I need mucho marks to get the last 33 armor piece for my Titan.  Looks like I will be doing the same.  Thanks for posting this.

You mean in the Vanguard Strike playlist or the Weekly?

I've noticed the higher level drop rates in most activities. Bungie said they upped the rate and quality.

Everything is a bit better/challenging, even during patrols and Public Events. Those Blades of Crota don't hold back and come lumbering into Public Events too.

Nice changes.

If you go into the Vanguard strikes it's above the 4 regular strikes to the left if I remember correctly. It's not the Weekly Heroic, Nightfall or daily.

I'll have to give this a try tonight. I need the gauntlets and boots for my Titan and Warlock. Hunter needs a full set.

I'm maxed on marks for this week.  I'll be looking to hit some of those strikes starting Tue night!  Great info.

Purple engrams seem to be flowing a little more right now.  I've got 4 in the last three days.  Is anyone else experiencing this?

No purple drops for me tonight, but about 3 of the blues I turned in turned into purples. 2 armor peices and a rocket launcher. I'll take it.

I have received two purple engrams since Tuesday. One was while doing the Weekly on 30, so I wasn't too surprised. The other though, was on patrol on the Cosmodrome right in the beginning. I thought it was heavy ammo until I picked it up. Woot!

Also, in case you missed it, there are a bunch of new ships dropping in both the ROC strike playlist (the Level 26 one), and in the Crucible.  I pulled Vintage Russian Soul, a gigantic space pontoon boat painted neon green, out of the strike playlist a couple of days ago.
