Xur 'Destiny' Location This Week, May 8 To 10: Exotic Gear Includes Thunderlord & Obsidian Mind
The weekend has arrived, meaning mysterious Destiny merchant Xûr is back, as well. The vendor is the only one in the game to sell exotic weapons, and every week is different than the last.
This week Xûr is in Tower North today, in front of the big gate near The Speaker. He's in a new location from one week to the next, and his stock differs every time. Xûr appears on Friday (4 a.m. Eastern) and departs overnight between Saturday and Sunday.
Xûr always sells three exotic armor pieces--one for each class--and an exotic weapon. Since The Dark Below's release, Xûr also offers an Exotic Shard, which is needed to upgrade Exotic weapons to their final tier, and he's selling an Exotic Helmet Engram. Here's the gear on sale this weekend:
Titan Armor: Ruin Wings Gauntlets
Hunter Armor: ATS/8 ARACHNID Helmet
Warlock Armor: Obsidian Mind Helmet
Exotic Weapon: Thunderlord Machine Gun
In post-The Dark Below Destiny, Xûr has a selection of items to upgrade in addition to his normal wares--the new list you see in his inventory is not simply gear for sale. You need the original weapon or armor piece to trade in for an upgrade, an Exotic Shard, and some Glimmer--this is meant to keep original exotics gained before the expansion relevant and up to par with the new gear.
Here's what you can upgrade this weekend: Mask of the Third Man, Lucky Raspberry, An Insurmountable Skullfort, Crest of Alpha Lupi, Skull of Dire Ahamkara, Apotheosis Veil, Bad Juju, Thorn, Plan C, Ice Breaker, Gjallarhorn, and Truth.
