As we inch closer to the release of House of Wolves, Destiny players are trying to finish up their check list for old gear. Whether it be drops from Crota’s End or Vault of Glass, many are scrambling to procure the most useful guns in Destiny, since all gear will soon be at max level.
However, while players are forced to rely on the cruel mistress known as RNG (random number generator) for their raid drops, the exotic vendor Xur is a little kinder. Well, kinder in the sense that he simply hands over his exotic weapons and armor in exchange for Strange Coins. What he has for sale, however, is completely reliant on the randomness of Destiny. So what does Xur have and where is he hiding?
This week Destiny players can find Xur in Tower North. Just head to the left after spawning in, follow the corridor to the open space over looking Earth, and Xur should be tucked off to the right. He’s pretty much directly opposite of the Speaker’s quarters.
Xur’s Exotic Selection
In most cases, we would spend some time talking about Xur’s exotic armor, but we’ll just say that those who haven’t picked up the Obsidian Mind or the Ruin Wings are recommended to do so. Both are extremely useful exotic armor pieces, not just in cooperative experiences, but also in Crucible.
Truly, though, this week’s big ticket item is the Thunderlord. Out of the dozens of exotics in Destiny, Thunderlord is one of the few that Xur has yet to sell, and it’s the only one left in his table not to be sold. Needless to say, Destiny players have been dying to see Thunderlord show up in Xur’s inventory and it finally did. We won’t mince words any longer; buy this weapon now!
For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:
- Ruin Wings (Titan DLC Gauntlets) – 13 Strange Coins
- ATS/8 Arachnid (Hunter Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Obsidian Mind (Warlock DLC Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Thunderlord (Machine Gun) – 17 Strange Coins
- Exotic Shard – 7 Strange Coins
- Exotic Helmet Engram – 23 Motes of Light
- Mask of the Third Man
- Lucky Raspberry
- An Insurmountable Skullfort
- Crest of Alpha Lupi (Titan)
- Skull of Dire Ahamkara
- Apotheosis Veil
- Bad Juju
- Plan C
- Ice Breaker
With Thunderlord finally appearing in Xur’s inventory, many Destiny players are likely that much closer to completing their full exotic set – provided they didn’t already have the gun. For most, now all that’s left is Gjallarhorn, an exotic rocket launcher most assume will never be a part of Xur’s selection again. But we thought the same thing about Thunderlord…
What do you hope Xur has for sale next week? And why is it Gjallarhorn?
