One of the most frequently asked questions in DestinyRPG is, "What are infusion materials for?"

The answer is to perform infusions on your gear (weapon/armor/class item).

So what exactly are infusions?

Infusions are upgrades to your gear.

There are 9 different possible infusions that can be performed on your gear: Attack (weapons), Defense (gear/class item), and the corresponding % stats that the gear already has.

FAQs

What is the max number of infusions?

The max number of infusions varies depending on the rarity of the gear. White = 10 | Green = 15 | Blue = 20 | Purple = 30 | Yellow = 50

How do I perform infusions on mobile/tablet?

What are community infusions?

Community infusions are infusions that a piece of gear will share with every player that owns the same piece of gear. These gears are generally those that are bought from vendors in the tower. i.e: infusing a piece of gear bought from Agent of the Nine (Xur) will give the infusion to all players that bought the same piece of gear

When should I start infusions?

In my opinion, I do not think infusion should be started until you reach the planet Phobos My rationale for doing this is to prevent the waste of valuable infusion materials. Regular engram gear should be able to suffice all the way up to Dreadnaught. Phobos is the first big jump in monster damage and the defense necessary to survive is higher than before. This is a great time to start armor infusions. Weapon infusions should be saved until you have a really good primary weapon that you would like to infuse.

Alternatively, if there is a great community item from Xur or one of the vendors in the tower, it would be great to infuse that item and help out everyone else that has the item.

Should I sell gear materials?

It's not advised to sell gear materials unless the glimmer received from it is absolutely necessary. While it may be easy to gather gear materials on the early planets, it becomes more difficult as you progress to the later planets. Relic Irons and Wormspores are the more valuable gear materials, so it is definitely advised to not sell these at all.
