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.
I got my Titan up to level 28 yesterday. I ran the Weekly Heroic with him to pick up nine more strange coins, and I ran the Nightfall with him. I was hoping Xur would bring a weapon I don’t have, but if he didn’t I was hoping he’d bring an Ice Breaker so I wouldn’t have to keep passing it between my Hunter and Titan. My reward for doing the Nightfall ended up being an Ice Breaker, so I was pretty happy about that. I also gave the Monte Carlo that I got from doing the Nightfall with my Hunter to my Titan, and I have to say that I really like that gun. It looks great, and it fires great. Need a little more stability for it and to upgrade the damage, but even bare bones it is a really sweet gun. So that’s two exotic weapons for me this week and weeks without seeing a strange coin from the Nightfall; I can’t rant about Nightfall loot anymore.
Xur’s exotics are up now, the daily bounties directly below it.
|Crest of Alpha Lupi
||Titan Chest – Whoever survives our passing does so only by our consent.||13 SC|
| Mask of the Third Man
||Hunter Helmet – “It wasn’t me. It was the Third Man.”||13 SC|
|Sunbreakers||Warlock Gauntlets – “When one can wield the fire of stars, what use s flesh and bone?”||13 SC|
||Rocket Launcher – “… is where you seek it.”||17 SC|
|Exotic Engram||Helmet Exotic Engram – Random exotic helmet for a random class.||23 MoL|
Xur can be found by the railing in the hangar. When you can first see where the ships land, go right towards the railing where you can see the city. He’s been there before, can’t really miss him. I went in with 45 Strange Coins, and ended up with nothing. I already have Truth, and while it’s a good rocket launcher, I don’t really care for two of them. Oh well, maybe something next week. If you pick up anything this week, let us know in the comments.

It’s one of those days where they don’t want you to combine bounties. I hate that One For All bounty. Public events are super easy and can be solo’d quickly, but trying to get to an area in hopes that one of these events spawns three times is a minor hassle. Because sometimes they don’t spawn. Use DestinyPublicEvents.com to try and make it easier on yourself.

Daily Heroic Mission: A Stranger’s Call
Location: Ishtar Sink, Venus
- Follow the Stranger’s coordinates to a legendary colony lost in the jungles of Venus.
- 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 first mission on Venus, but it can still get hectic. This is when you first run across the Vex. The mission is simple; just fight off a few waves of Vex enemies. Of course that includes a ton of Goblins, Hobgoblins, and several Minotaur’s. I like to get up on the highest balcony, as the Vex can’t get up there so it’s mostly safe. With the juggler modifier, that just means you’ll down to get ammo and try to get back up as quickly as possible (which isn’t exactly easy as a hunter when you’re being shot at). If you don’t want to get up top, just keep them in front of you and at a distance, and you shouldn’t have too much trouble. Just don’t get surrounded trying to pick up ammo.
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.
