Daily Destiny 1/9/15: Xur Has The Last Word, Secure The Warmind, Daily Bounties

Destiny Daily

It’s Friday, and that means Xur has arrived in the tower once again to sell his exotic wares. Unfortunately, he didn’t bring the weapon myself and a ton of others want… although he did bring a great gun to have with the Iron Banner coming up next week. If you missed it, the Iron Banner returns Tuesday and will run through the following Monday. Also happening Tuesday is a patch that puts an end to all the known and common cheese throughout the Crota’s End raid. You can read about that here.

First up, Xur’s black market:

Xur’s Exotics

Exotic Item
An Insurmountable Skullfort
Titan Helmet – BRAINVAULT Sigma-ACTIUM-IX Cranial Dreadnought (Invincible Type).
13 SC
Lucky Raspberry
Hunter Chest – NBoe one has ever died wearming me. It’s true. Shea leaves the unworthy before they fall.
13 SC
Starfire Protocol
Warlock Gauntlets – 13.4 billion years ago, the first stars kindled out of darkness, seeding the future of all life.
13 SC
The Last Word
Hand Cannon – “Yours… not mine.” – Renegate Hunter Shin Malphur to Dredgen Yar
23 SC
Exotic Shard
A remnant that almost seems to have a life of its own. Can be used to unlock the full power of Exotic gear.
7 SC

Xur can be found down towards the hangar, on the right up against the railing. No exotics for me, but Xur is also selling Heavy Weapon ammo at 5 packs for 1 strange coin. I spent 60 coins buying heavy ammo, so I’m good to go on that front. The Last Word is a good gun, especially for PVP. If you don’t have it, and like Hand Cannon’s (which you should), then I definitely recommend it.

These are the items that Xur has available to upgrade for the original item, 7000+ Glimmer, and an Exotic Shard:

  • Crest of Alpha Lupi – Hunter Chest
  • Young Ahamkara’s Spine – Hunter Gauntlets
  • Helm of Saint-14- Titan Helmet
  • An Insurmountable Skullfort – Titan Helmet
  • Apotheosis Veil – Warlock Helmet
  • Heart of the Praxic Fire – Warlock Chest
  • Hard Light – Assault Rifle
  • SUROS Regime – Assault Rifle
  • MIDA Multi-Tool – Scout Rifle
  • Thorn – Hand Cannon
  • Plan C – Fusion Rifle
  • Gjallarhorn – Rocket Launcher
  • Monte Carlo (PlayStation Exclusive) – Assault Rifle

You need to have the exotic that you wish to upgrade equipped. Getting real tired of seeing Gjallarhorn there to be upgraded when I can’t get the weapon. I upgraded my SUROS.

I’ll be changing up this sections layout next week.

Break the House of Devils’ grasp on the Cosmodrome and secure a vital link to the Golden Age.


  • HEROIC – Enemies appear in greater numbers and are more aggressive.
  • LIGHTSWITCH – Minions of the Darkness deal much more melee damage.


Cryptarch Engram

+5 Vanguard Marks

XP + 4800 / 6000 / 7500

+1 Ascendant Material (lvl 26) 2 Ascendant Materials (lvl 30)

Destination Materials + 10 / 12 / 16

This mission hasn’t come up since November 21st. So it’s probably be a long time since a lot of you, like me, have played it.

This is a really quick and easy mission, BUT stay on guard as it is loaded with stealth vandals (including one who jumps down from the ceiling) and that could be an instant death if they melee you. The vandals are really the only thing you have to worry about, but you don’t want anything meleeing you. Keep distance between yourself and enemies at all times.

For the final part with the servitors, it’s best to have a good sniper rifle or a good rocket launcher with you to take them down fairly quickly.

That’s going to wrap up this week Guardians. Did you buy or upgrade anything from Xur? If so, let us know in the comments.

As always, no Destiny Daily on the weekends. I’ll be back Monday morning as we get ready for the world to reset on Tuesday.
