Destiny Daily 12/15/17: Xur’s Stock, Trials of the Nine, Challenges, Kinetic Damage Mod

Destiny Daily

It’s Friday Guardian’s, and that means everyone’s favorite representative of the Nine has arrived. He’s a got a couple new ways to help you get exotics this time around too. Speaking of the Nine, Trials of the Nine is also underway for those of you who are into that sort of thing.

Let’s get to right to it, here’s what’s new with the daily reset for Friday, December 15th:

Daily Milestone

There doesn’t appear to be one, unless it’s related to The Trials of the Nine milestone.


Xur's Stock

Xur has returned, and this time he’s got a couple of new items to see in addition to his exotic gear. It’s like old times, Xur is in The Tower, located in the hangar past Dead Orbit and up some stairs.

Three of Coins are back, and this time they’re legendary. Instead of being a consumable before killing a boss or during a crucible match, the new Three of Coins boosts your chance for an exotic engram for four hours and works for any activity.

Xur also has a new exotic Fated Engram. This engram will decrypt into an exotic you don’t already own, making it easier than ever to complete your exotic collection. This Fated Engram is available once per week and costs 97 Legendary Shards.

Xur’s Inventory:

  • D.A.R.C.I. – Sniper Rifle // 29 Legendary Shards
  • Celestial Nighthawk – Hunter Helmet // 23 Legendary Shards
  • Hallowfire Heart – Titan Chest // 23 Legendary Shards
  • Eye of Another World – Warlock Helmet // 23 Legendary Shards
  • Fated Engram // 97 Legendary Shards
  • Three of Coins // 31 Legendary Shards

The Fated Engram is once per week and is account based, not character based.


Trials of the Nine

This week, Trials of the Nine is SURVIVAL on Distant Shores.

CHALLENGE 1 CHALLENGE 2 CHALLENGE 3
Tribute: As a fireteam, defeat 150 opponents.
Fulfillment: Win 10 rounds. Judgment: Win 5 matches.

Heroic Adventure Modifiers

Heroic Adventures can be acquired by Brother Vance in the Lighthouse on Mercury, and should reset daily. 

  • Prism: Attacks matching the periodically rotating focused element do more damage. Other elemental damage is reduced. Incoming damage is unaffected.
  • Justice From Above: Increased jump velocity and airborne acceleration. Your Super recharges faster and deals more damage. Melee recharges slower and deals less damage.

Looks like a really fun combination of modifiers.

Destiny 2 Vendor Weapons

Weapons can be purchased from most vendors once you have received 10 reward engrams from that vendor. This is character based, not account based. Weapon selection resets daily. Weapons cost 20 Legendary Shards AND 10 of the vendor specific Tokens.

VENDOR WEAPON NAME WEAPON TYPE INTRINSIC / TRAIT
Commander Zavala (Tower) Wicked Sister Grenade Launcher Adaptive Frame / Auto-Loading Holster
Lord Shaxx (Tower) Swift Solstice Energy Sidearm Suros Rapid-Fire / Zen Moment
Devrim Kay (EDZ) Hawthorne’s Field-Forged Shotgun Shotgun Lightweight Frame / Full Auto Trigger System
Sloane (Titan) Nox Echo III Fusion Rifle Adaptive Frame / Hip-Fire Grip
Failsafe (Nessus) The Mornin’ Comes Sniper Rifle Adaptive Frame / Outlaw
Asher Mir (Io) The Rattler Energy Sidearm Lightweight Frame / Kill Clip

These started out changing daily, but the past three days they’ve remained the same. So, I assumed they stealth fixed it and the weapon selection will likely rotate on a weekly basis instead of a daily one (which is lame). As such, I’ll be removing this section and putting it in the Destiny Weekly feature on Tuesday’s.


Destiny 2 Legendary mods

The Gunsmith is selling the following Legendary Mods today for 5 Mod Components and 10 Legendary Shards:

  • Kinetic Damage Mod
  • Arc Paragon Mod [Arms Armor Mod]
  • Self-Repairing Mod [Warlock Bond Mod]

You can also spend 2 Mod Components and 1000 Glimmer to roll the dice on a random Legendary Armor or Weapon mod.

Now’s a good time to stock up on some Kinetic Damage mods.
