I do like what has to be done to get the actual raid emblem, you need to complete [u]all [/u] encounters. IMO, sherpa emblems should be the same. LFG is going crazy with "Crota CP sherpa, have 0 clears". This isn't teaching. Isn't sherpa a teacher? Plus those people won't learn OR get their emblem. It's just placing them on the "add-clear" or "put well here" role. I get that the emblem does say "CARRY 10 guardians", so I guess my idea of requirements is skewed. Personally, I'd rather earn the emblem by teaching a full run. I already have my "10 carries" emblem, but the groups I ran with were all full runs, because they wanted to learn mechanics, get the secret chests and red border weapon at the end. TLDR: Bungie, I absolutely love the design of the "Hope Eater" emblem, but please make sherpa emblems count full clears for 10 new people.
The only genuine teacher I know is my friend who does daily runs of Garden to help people get div’s and clear the raid. She has over 500 full clears and I’m sure those sherpas she had genuinely have some understanding of that raid. The idea of a Sherpa emblem is pretty toxic unless it was a full clear. And even then, most “teachers” are awful and don’t let the people being taught do anything of significance. I want more content that requires the effort of all people to avoid wipe mechanics.
