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 November 11th.
It may be a holiday in the United States but that doesn't mean the world of Destiny takes a break. Right on schedule, the exotic weapon and armor vendor Xur has returned to offer players a selection of unique gear in exchange for Strange Coins. This is also the first weekend that Xur has been on his new schedule, arriving an hour early because of Daylight Savings Time.
Destiny players can find Xur in The Reef, tucked behind a door that is locked on most days. Head to the right after spawning in, follow the stairs down, turn to the right, and Xur will be through the door straight ahead. If the door fails to open then something has gone wrong, and chances are Bungie will be implementing a fix.
For exotic armor this weekend, Xur has the Twilight Garrison chest piece for Titans, the Fr0st-EE5 boots for Hunters, and the Apotheosis Veil helmet for Warlocks. This is the first time that Xur has sold the Hunter boots since the launch of Rise of Iron, so Hunters are likely very pleased with Xur right now.
It also doesn't hurt that the Fr0st-EE5 boots are actually useful, offering an increased cooldown on abilities while sprinting and a faster turn radius. If you're a Nightstalker then these exotic boots are likely to become your new best friend, as they make the already agile Hunter subclass even more deadly.
Xur's exotic weapon this weekend is the Monte Carlo auto rifle, a solid option for subclasses that love to melee enemies. It's true that auto rifles are not what they were in Year 1 of Destiny, but plenty of players can make the Monte Carlo work in their favor.
For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:
- Twilight Garrison (Titan Chest Piece) – 13 Strange Coins
