Destiny Daily 12/11/14: Daily Bounties, Xur Arrives Tomorrow So Have Your Shards and Coins Ready

Destiny Daily

Yesterday I ran the Nightfall, twice with the same character. First I did it solo, which took two hours including the times I stopped to take a break and grab lunch. My reward was an non-expansion exotic helmet for a Titan which I just dismantled for an exotic shard. Last night, I ran with my brother (level 29) and it only took an hour, but that point I had upgraded the damage of my new arc sniper and my arc rocket launcher. He got 11 Ascendant Energies (he needs shards to upgrade his gear). After that, we did the daily (we both got energy), and I took him to the new raid to show him the first chest. Since it’s a random spawn, we had to wipe a few times before it showed up. He got radiant energy AND the Playstation exclusive exotic shotgun The 4th Horsemen out of that chest. He’ll never even use it. Lame.

Here are the bounties for 12/11:

Oh, so it’s like that Bungie?  Us Hunter’s would really like to be able to do all four bounties considering we need the rep the rank up with Eris. Grab the Siege of the Warmind bounty before doing the Daily Heroic. I did hit rank one yesterday; and now I need 2000 rep to hit rank two.

Siege of the Warmind

Old Russia, Earth



Find Rasputin’s bunker. Defend it against the Hive attack.


HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.

ANGRY – Minions of the Darkness won’t flinch, even after massive damage.


Cryptarch Engram

+5 Vanguard Marks

XP +7500

+2 Ascendant Materials

Destination Materials +16

In order to do the Daily today, you need to have The Dark Below expansion, and it’s only available as a level 30 mission. I’ve only played this one twice, once on normal and once on hard, so I’m not overly familiar with it yet.


Tomorrow Xur comes back to the Tower to sell his exotic wares. However, as we all know, this week he’ll have a brand new category available as well. Random exotic weapons and armor will be available to upgrade. For 7,000 Glimmer and an Exotic Shard, you can turn in your old exotics and get them upgraded to unleveled new versions. Now why is that worth doing? Well for weapons the old ones are capped at 300 attack; upgrade it and it’ll be more powerful right of the proverbial box (I believe they start at 302 attack).

I have 59 Strange Coins and just about 14,000 Glimmer (I’ll farm it back up to max today), so I’m ready.  What are you hoping for this week?

  1. Hoping that Xur would bring me an Ice Breaker tomorrow, I am also sitting on 59 Strange Coins. I turned in a Legendary Engram yesterday, and as I was sarcastically commenting to my Fireteam buddy “Here comes another Strange Coin” –poof– Ice Breaker! with 302 attack right out of the box. My first thought was that I had to let Gary know that I got one!


    • Nice! Glad you one now, especially without having to use any coins to get it. Most of the time I have a legendary engram it turns into materials, so maybe one day I’ll get an exotic to pop out of one. You’re going to love the Ice Breaker. Makes things so much easier. I’m hoping Xur has it available for upgrade tomorrow; I need a more powerful version.
