The Vanguard is a faction that consists of three high-ranking Guardians who are considered the best of their respective classes. Each Vanguard sells armor for a specific class. They reside in the Hall of Guardians in the Tower.
Vanguard Reputation is an attribute awarded to Guardians for completing Vanguard-issued bounties, Patrol missions, and Strikes from the Strike playlist. Upon reaching rank 2, Guardians will be able to purchase armor from Commander Zavala, Cayde-6, and Ikora Rey. Upon reaching rank 3, Guardians will be able to purchase weapons from Roni 55-30. Starting at rank 3, Guardians will receive one to two Legendary items (not engrams) in the mail every time they rank up.
