Do these actually do anything?? None that I have seen actually have any stats on them.

The class armour is mostly cosmetic, but you can buy a set that is specific to certain guilds (there's three guilds I believe) and what this then does is take any vanguard and crucible points earned and put them against that guild instead....which allows you to buy weapons and armour for that guild.


This nullifies the fear that crucible gear is better than vanguard gear.

*smartie mode on*
Factions
*smartie mode off*

Isn't factions only for Crucible though?
But yeah, bottomline is that statwise it's not all that different. But you might like a specific stat that isn't on a Vanguard set (don't know if that occurs or not, I'm only looking at Vanguard myself).

Factions relate to crucible, but from what I've heard it takes all points scored as either vanguard or crucible and puts the points towards that faction instead.

The gear though is identical...of course we've not seen Raid gear yet, which I imagine is the best stuff in the game.
