Now that Xur is selling Engrams, it’s important you go and visit the Agent of the Nine so you can expand your Exotic collection and nab something you’re missing. Remember, be sure to purchase any item’s you’re missing before buying the Fated Engram, as the engram is guaranteed to reward you with an item you do not own. If you own everything, the Engram will give you a random roll of somthing you do own, which is still useful in upgrading your gear.
If you’re in a time zone where Xur’s arrival is at a stupidly early hour in the morning, fret not: Xur usually hangs around for a few days, arriving on Friday and leaving on Tuesday at weekly reset. With that said, it's certainly worth paying him a visit, as his shop is great place for players to track down rare goods like Exotic weapons and armor. You can even pick up some Legendary weapons and armor now, so Xur is arguably more useful than ever. Just be sure to bring plenty of Legendary Shards.
Ever the punctual merchant, Xur arrives in Destiny 2 every Friday at 10 a.m. PDT, offering special wares to players with the right amount of currency.
