Destiny Daily 10/31/14: Xur Brings Patience and Time to the Tower, Daily Bounties

Destiny Daily

Guardians, it’s Friday, and that means Xur has returned to the Tower. You can check out his wares and location immediately below this section.

It’s also Halloween, and for those who are into Halloween, I hope you have a fun one. I don’t really care for Halloween myself. Anyway, we’ll skip the rest of the intro and get right into it, as I’m running late with the post this morning as it is anyway.

Xur’s Exotics

The Armamentarium Titan Chest – For this, there Is One Remedy 13 SC
Lucky Raspberry
Hunter Chest – No one has ever died wearing me. It’s true. She leaves the unworthy before they fall. 13 SC
Voidfang Vestments Warlock Chest – “YOU WILL DREAM OF TEETH AND NOTHING ELSE” – scratched behind a buckle 13 SC
Patience and Time
Sniper Rifle – If you’ve got it, they’ll never see it coming. 23 SC
Exotic Engram Helmet Exotic Engram – Random exotic helmet for a random class. 23 MoL


Xur can be found down stairs, beside the Crucible Quartermaster. He’s been there before, can’t really miss him. I went in with 34 Strange Coins, and ended up buying Patience and Time and an exotic engram since I wasn’t doing anything with the Motes anyway. I was hoping for a Warlock helmet, but nope it gave me a Hunter helmet I already had. Yay for Shards! If you pick up anything this week, let us know in the comments.

Vanguard Bounties

Target: Sekrion Defeat Sekrion, Nexus Mind in the “The Nexus” Strike on Venus. +100 / +5,000
Walking Tall Complete any Strike without dying. +100 / +5,000
One For All Achieve Gold Tier Rating in 3 Public Events. +100 / +5,000
Body Dropper Kill 100 enemies without dying. +50 / +2,500
Target: Merok, Eir Prince Defeat Merok in the “Sword of Crota” mission on the Moon with the Heroic modifier active. +100 / +5,000
Patrol Venus Complete 6 Patrol missions on Venus. +50 / +2,500


That’s a fine mixture of bounties. Run the Nexus Strike on the lowest setting of the Weekly Heroic and make sure you have the bounties Sekrion, Walking Tall, and Body Dropper. Stay out in the spawn area and kill a bunch of enemies, and then proceed through the strike killing everything. You should end up completing those three bounties. If for some reason you don’t kill 100 enemies, mop it up while doing the Sword of Crota mission.

Crucible Bounties

The Wild Hunt Defeat 25 Hunters in the Crucible. +75 / +3,750
Broken Scholar Defeat 25 Warlocks in the Crucible. +75 / +3,750
Ash and Dust Defeat 15 Guardians with a Rocket Launcher. +50 / +2,500
Headhunter Defeat 50 Guardians with headshots. +100 / +5,000
Death or Glory Complete 5 Clash Matches. +100 / +5,000
Target Practice Earn 10 Gunslinger medals. +100 / +5,000


The Crucible playlist for today is Skirmish.

Daily Heroic Mission: The Black Garden

Location: Meridian Bay, Mars


  • Fight through the Gate and enter the Black Garden to destroy its heart.


  • HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • JUGGLER – No ammo drops for your equipped weapon.


  • Cryptarch Engram
  • Vanguard Marks +5
  • +4800 XP (lvl 20) l +6000 XP (lvl 24) l +7500 XP (lvl 28)
  • Ascendant Material (lvl 24) l 2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 28)

This is the last mission of the game’s story. It’s not that bad, but can be tricky just because of the three bosses at the end with all the trash that spawns alongside them. Because of the Juggler modifier, highly recommend bringing an Ice Breaker if you have it.

If you have a decent rocket launcher, bring it to. You’ll want to use it and the sniper rifle against the three bosses, while dodging their attacks and of course getting out of the way of the trash (or killing them if necessary). This is a mission I usually focus all of my attention on the current boss and ignore the other enemies unless I just have to kill them.

That’s going to do it for today Guardians. Remember, no Destiny Daily on Saturday and Sunday, so I’ll be back again on Monday for more Destiny Daily. Did you buy anything from Xur this week? Let us know in the comments below. Have a happy and safe Halloween!
