Destroying legendaries

Post by Atrum on Wed Oct 01, 2014 4:29 pm

I haven't had much chance to test, however I believe that Chest pieces give more ascendant materials than gloves or boots.

My experience with this (buy from crucible/vanguard and wasting for shards) has given me 2 shards for gloves or boots, while giving me 3 shards for chest pieces. These all cost the same - 65 marks.
I haven't bothered testing helmets yet to see if they give more as it may be a waste of marks.

Post up here what you guys are getting for different pieces so we can see if it's random, or perhaps tied to the total defense of the item.

Been totally random for me.  2-3 no matter the piece.  The only thing that seems to be consistent is 3 shards from exotic gear.

I've been on a lucky spree with chest pieces then, 4 in a row with 3 shards  Very Happy

That makes sense that it is random though. Still curious about helmets. You would think they should give more given the higher mark cost.

I think I got 4 from a fully upgraded legs I ditched when I got my first Raid piece.

EDIT: Not that that is cost effective, but note worthy when ditching old gear for Raid stuff.

Agreed, it is random 2-3 for chests as well.  I've received 4 from upgraded pieces, like Interseptor said.
