We have the early scoop on where to find the vendor Xur and what exotic armor and weapons he has available to Destiny players for the weekend of April 8.
Destiny‘s big April Update is just four days away. This week, Bungie went over some of the balancing and sandbox changes coming with the update. Warlocks are getting reworked a bit, there are big changes coming to the revive mechanic, and MIDA Multi-Tool might be a little less popular.
With Destiny‘s new 1-for-1 Infusion system coming into effect this coming Tuesday, it might be a good idea to pick up any exotics from Xur players don’t have. For most fans who probably already have Xur’s stock, there’s something else in his inventory that could be worth your coins.
This week, Xur can be found in Tower North to the right of the Speaker. Once you spawn into the Tower, head left and take the tunnel to the north side of the Tower. Keep going straight past where the Speaker is and Xur will be near the railing.
For armor, Xur has the Crest of Alpha Lupi chest armor for Titans, the Don’t Touch Me gauntlets for Hunters, and The Impossible Machines gauntlets for Warlocks.
There is no exotic weapon this week. Taking its place is instead an exotic chest armor engram, which may prove more useful than any weapon this Agent of the Nine could have brought.
Bungie hasn’t clarified whether exotic engrams players hold onto after the April Update will decrypt into new exotics at the new Light level; however, chances are good that they will.
Also, many players may be searching for the Titan chest armor Twilight Garrison. If players get lucky, decrypting these exotic chest pieces could result in dropping this coveted piece of armor.
So, either rolling for Twilight Garrison or buying some exotic engrams to stock up for the April Update would be a good use of Strange Coins this week. Don’t bother picking up the exotic gauntlet engrams—they are Legacy engrams, which means they will drop Year 1 exotics at Year 1 levels, without the Infusion option. Ignore them.
For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:
- Crest of Alpha Lupi (Titan Chest Armor) – 13 Strange Coins
- Don’t Touch Me (Hunter Gauntlets) – 13 Strange Coins
- The Impossible Machines (Warlock Gauntlets) – 13 Strange Coins
- Exotic Chest Engram – 19 Strange Coins
