Does it actually do anything having the cryptarch levelled. Mine is almost level 8 now and still the only engrams I can aquire are green ones

I'm going with no......my cryptarch level is 18 and the stuff to buy is exactly the same.

I heard somebody say it would improve chances on better items, but nothing definitive on that. Anyway, it'll level as you go, so whatever I guess.
Same as leveling Vanguard/Crucible above 3, no reason as it is now it seems, but who knows in the future?

The only bonus of levelling any of the ranks past 3 at the moment (although I haven't got any of the fractions high enough yet to prove the same) are that you are given free engrams/materials for each level (hit 3 with vanguard and got engrams, the same at 4, and have been getting engrams at most levels after 3 with the cryptarch - still leveling crucible so cannot prove that yet) - these can often be rare/legendary and with the upcoming patch (engrams will always be of equal/higher rarity as the engrams themselves) this means better chances of getting additional legendary (or the odd exotic) weapons/armour.

I heard the same about the higher level cryptarch level reducing the likelyhood of poor loot rolls - but i'm guessing this never was the case if they're altering the decryption rules in the update.
