Vault of Glass is Destiny‘s first raid, a cooperative exercise for up to six players — that’s more than any other co-op mode in the game so far, FYI — set on Venus. It wasn’t available when the game launched on September 9, 2014, but the Vault’s doors swing open today and all are welcome.
No, really. Everyone. If you look at the mission in-game, you’ll see a level 26 requirement attached to it. That’s merely a recommendation. Bungie confirmed on Twitter that pre-26 players can take a crack at Vault of Glass if they like, at their own risk. See here….
Bungie Specialists have confirmed that, while you may be able to access the Raid before you reach Level 26, such acts would be very foolish.

It looks like you’ve got to reach a certain plateau within the game — my level 6 Warlock can’t jump into Vault of Glass even though Venus is unlocked, for example — but if you’re at level 20, and you happen to be a glutton for punishment, Vault of Glass is ready and waiting to destroy your good, happy times and ruin your faith in the world.
