It's Friday in Destiny-land and that means it's time for another edition of "Where in the Tower is Xur?" More importantly it's time for Guardians to find out what new exotic items are on the menu for this weekend, and whether or not those weapons/armor will be able to help them in their ongoing quest.
For those who might not know, Xur is an Agent of the Nine and a secret vendor that only appears on Fridays and Saturdays in Destiny. He's the mysterious hooded figure that sells exotic weapons, armor and engrams in exchange for either Strange Coins or Motes of Light.
Xur's appearance is a big deal in the world of Destiny, if only because he is an easy way to accrue exotic items. Granted, Destiny players have to earn the Strange Coins to buy Xur's wares, but that's not a very tall order at this point.
Now, onto the fun stuff. This week Xur can be found in the Vanguard Quarters, which is the big room where the three class Vanguards are located. Once you enter the room, Xur can be found along the right wall. It's actually the same position he was in about four weeks ago, so it should be too hard to miss him.
As far as Xur's selection is concerned it seems the theme for this weekend is Chest Armor, as Xur has three different Chest pieces for all three classes. He also has the Suros Regime exotic rifle - a repeat from a few weeks ago, but a very worthy primary weapon if you don't already have it. Curiously enough, Bungie seems to agree that the Suros is a high value weapon, as they have bumped the gun's price from the usual 17 coins to 23.
Here is the full list of Xur’s Exotic armor and weapons, as well as their prices:
- The Armamentarium (Titan Chest Armor) – 13 Strange Coins
- Crest of Alpha Lupi (Hunter Chest Armor) – 13 Strange Coins
- Voidfang Vestments (Warlock Chest Armor) – 13 Strange Coins
- Suros Regime (Auto Rifle) – 23 Strange Coins
- Exotic Gauntlet Engram – 23 Motes of Light
Where past weeks had one or maybe two repeats, it appears Bungie has exhausted their full Xur inventory at this point. It's nice of them to bring back the Suros because it's a solid weapon, but doing so diminishes the gun's value for those who already bought it. See you next week!
What do you think of Xur's exotic item selection for this weekend? What items do you have your eye on?
