Let’s Rank Some Things In Destiny: The Taken King

Destiny: The Taken King is full of things to do, but how do you know which thing to do and when to do it.  Well for most things you don’t have a choice, such as the next Crucible map or the next Strike in the Strike Playlist.  However, you might be able to pick which mode you play and the difficulty of some of the enemies.  Kotaku just ranked everything* in Destiny, and since this is the internet, I disagree with some of their rankings.  After the break I will rank some things to do in Destiny.

First I will put up Kotaku’s list of the best things, followed by my list.  Today let’s focus on Crucible with the best maps and the best modes.
