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 October 23rd.
While most would agree that Xur’s selection has been cause for little excitement as of late, the Agent of the Nine has found a new purpose for Destiny players. With engrams and Three of Coins in tow, Xur has become a bit more of a gamble when it comes to Strange Coins, but he’s also become a lot more useful. That trend has continued this weekend.
First off, time to find Xur. This week Destiny players can find Xur in Tower South, in the area referred to as the nightclub. Head directly right after spawning into the Tower, follow the stairs past the hangar and down underneath the Future War Cult representative, and once you can’t go any further Xur should be tucked away in the back right corner.
For exotic armor, this week Xur has a set of helmets, one of which is a brand new Taken King exotic. While we can’t see much use for the Empyrean Bellicose Titan helmet, which lets players hover while aiming a weapon in the air, it’s still got an interesting design. More importantly, it’s another exotic on the road to completing the full set.
Unfortunately, Hunters and Warlocks are left with two familiar helmets, the Mask of the Third Man and the Skull of Dire Ahamkara. Mask of the Third Man is a solid option for Hunters, especially those fond of using Arc Blade in PvP, but the Skull is a little tougher sell. Still, if you’re a collector, might as well pick these up.
The most exciting item in Xur’s inventory this week, though, is the exotic chest engram. So far, Xur has sold both a helmet and a gauntlet engram, but this is the first time he has sold a chest piece. For many, these engrams will help them get closer to light level 310 and will likely make a lot of players raid-ready for King’s Fall hard mode. And the good news is there aren’t many chest pieces to choose from, so Destiny players have a higher chance of getting the one they want.
For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:
- Empyrean Bellicose (Titan Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Mask of the Third Man (Hunter Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Skull of Dire Ahamkara (Warlock Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Legacy Heavy Weapon Engram – 31 Strange Coins
- Exotic Chest Piece Engram – 23 Strange Coins
- Three of Coins – 7 Strange Coins
Overall, it’s a solid week for Xur, if only because he has the chest piece engram. Granted, there’s a fair bit of luck involved with decrypting engrams and hoping that come in at 310, but such is the nature of the Cryptarch. Hopefully, some players out there were lucky enough to get some worthwhile armor pieces. And if not, there’s always the Three of Coins.
What exotic armor piece do you hope Xur sells next week?
