Destiny Alien Damage Guide?by KillerKodiak69

With the reset right around the corner, I thought I?d post a guide on all things Alien in Destiny, namely pertaining to dealing and receiving damage. I?ve been working on this for the past two weeks, because I was dismayed at the lack of reliably sourced information on the topic, and even worse, the abundant dissemination of misinformation.

Enemy Ranks

What rank is appended to the name of the enemy based on the difficulty of the activity you are doing. This is not vital information, but it?s just another piece of the puzzle that Bungie didn?t choose to explain, so I tried to solve it myself. This table is currently incomplete and any data that can be provided is welcome.
