Destiny Daily 10/17/14: Xur Is Back and Daily Bounties

Destiny Daily

It’s Friday Guardians, and that of course means that everyone’s favorite vendor is back in the Tower. Yes, Xur has returned to peddle more of his exotic wares.

Checkout our feature from yesterday to see what Game Modes and Events We Want to See Come to Destiny and be sure to let us know what you’d like to see come to the game as well.

Before we see what Xur has for sale this week, let’s first look at the daily bounties for 10/17:


  • One For All – Achieve Gold Tier Rating in Public Events (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • Unstoppable – Earn 9000 Experience without dying (+50 Rep, +2500 XP)
  • Overcharge – Kill 2 enemies at once with a Fusion Rifle, 20 times (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • TARGET: PRIMUS SHA’AULL – Defeat Primus Shau’ull in “The Garden’s Spire” mission on Mars with the Heroic modifier active (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • TARGET: BRACUS THA’AURN – Defeat Bracus Tha’aurn in “The Buried City” mission on Mars with the Heroic modifier active (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • Patrol Mars – Complete 6 Patrol missions on Mars (+50 Rep, +2500 XP)


  • First Blood – Earn 3 First Blood medals (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)

  • Never See You Coming – Defeat 10 Guardians from behind (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • Ash and Dust – Defeat 15 Guardians with a Rocket Launcher (+50 Rep, +2500 XP)
  • Death or Glory – Complete 5 Clash matches (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)
  • Electrocutioner – Earn 10 Fusion Rifle Sprees in the Crucible (+100 Rep, +5000 XP)

This week Xur is located in the Hanger. Head towards the shipwright, but when you first get into the hanger, turn right and Xur is right up against the balcony. Can’t miss him. Here’s what he is selling this week.

  • The Armamentarium – Titan Chest Armor (13 Strange Coins)
  • Achlyophage Symbiote – Hunter Helmet (13 Strange Coins)
  • Light Beyond Nemesis – Warlock Helmet (13 Strange Coins)
  • Truth – Void Rocket Launcher (17 Strange Coins)
  • Exotic Body Arm Engram (23 Motes of Light)

I went ahead about Truth, just because I needed a good Rocket Launcher. I’ll be going back later to buy the Armamentarium for my alt Titan character. He is only level 17 at the moment, but he already has a legendary helmet in storage. So the helmet and this exotic chest alone should be enough to take him from level 20 to level 22 (or 23).

The Daily Heroic Story mission for today is The World’s Grave on the Moon. It has the Lightswitch modifier active, so don’t let the Thrall’s get close to you. The Crucible playlist for today is Rumble.

Despite the server issues yesterday, coupled with PSN’s issues, I had a fairly good day in Destiny. I got an Ascendant Shard out of a random chest in The Divide on Earth during Patrol. I have seen legendary engrams from chests before, but it’s the first time I’ve ever see an Ascendant Material come from one.  I also entered the Vault of Glass solo just to pick up the first loot chest, and that gave me two Ascendant Energies. I finally bought me a legendary handcannon (The Devil You Know), so now all of my weapons are either legendary or exotic. Can’t wait to get this gun upgraded.

That’s all for this week. Remember, no Destiny Daily on Saturday and Sunday, so I’ll see you all Monday morning. Let us know if you bought anything from Xur this week, or if the random loot system has worked out in your favor recently.

  1. I bought TDYK hand cannon 3 days ago, maxed it yesterday. It fits perfectly with Ice breaker.


  2. Oh! and keep up the good work, I read your posts everyday and It keeps the suspense level to a minimum not having to wait until the evening to see what the day shall bring.


    • Thanks for the comments, and for reading these everyday. Glad the posts are useful.

      I haven’t even gotten the first damage upgrade for TDYK yet, but I’m already really liking it. The old rare one I had been using was great (it had 12 rounds and extremely high impact), but this is already proving to be one of my favorite guns thus far. What I really want though is the Fatebringer hand cannon.
