  3. Does the Cryptarch's Rank Even Matter?

Ive picked up several legendary engrams. Is it beneficial to wait when my Cryptarch is a higher rank for a better possibility of them turning into actual legendaries? Or am I just prolonging the inevitable? Is the engram going to be what its going to be based on my rank when I picked it up?

Ranking up the cryptarch gives you a parcel in the mail with 2-3 random engrams. I found between level 1-5 they were all blues I recently went from 5-6 and recieved 1 blue and 2 legendary engrams in the mail.

I don't think the rank of the cryptarch affects the chance of getting a higher rank item, but the legendary engrams from ranking him up definitely don't hurt.

Short answer. No.

The more you level it up, the more likely you will get legendaries you'll get for engrams.
It betters your chances for getting better loot.

I'm pretty sure your chances of getting better loot go up as I'm starting to see more and more legendaries and my dude is level 9 now.

You must have incredible luck. I'm level 24 and I haven't gotten a single legendary yet.

I think he meant his cryptarch's level was 9,not his Guardian.

I'm level 26 and my Cryptarch is rank 14 and I still get mostly crap from legendary engrams.

The item you get in the engram is locked once you pick it up. The game has already assigned a rarity and decided what it's going to be. If you hold on to it, it will level with you, but the rarity and what time of item it is has already been determined by the RNG.
