Im adding this guide just to tell you how to access the hard difficulty. How to play it shouldnt be much different than the regular except the enemies are higher level and the Heroic modifier is on which adds more enemies.

EDIT 1: ItsJust1n has also informed us that there are no team revives for this difficulty of the raid.
However, anyone down can be revived automatically once the team hits a checkpoint, or if they have self revive as a sunsinger warlock.

Step 1: Defeat normal raid. Hard unlocks after you beat this.

Step 2: Advance to level 30. The enemies in here begin at level 29, and go up to 30, so anything less than the 30 max level will make this more difficult than need be, though it is possible as 29. This is because for every level under an enemy you are you get roughly a negative 1/4 damage multiplier, which is also why if you are more than 3 levels under the mission it will show "Impossible" and not start.

Step 3: The only way to reach level 30 currently is by obtaining the full set of normal raid armor. That is because though this armor is purple in rarity, it acts as exotic and can get up to Light +30. A full set of this, or one exotic added, maxed out will net you level 30.

EDIT 2: Further details on leveling to 29/30 come in from HolyHa1fDead. Level 30 is 120 Light. Level 29 requires 109 Light. Fully upgraded Legandary gear is 27 Light, so you will need either one piece of Exotic gear or Raid gear to get to Level 29. You will also need at least 62 Ascendant Shards.

EDIT 3: With the level cap increased to 40 now, this is relatively easy to pop on Vault of Glass or Crota. Unconfirmed for Prison of Elders lvl 35.

EDIT 4 10/13/15: VoG and Crota appear to be working for this again after the most recent patch

I will add to this if anything else comes up. If you down vote, please say why. Any thing you think would be a good addition, let me know
