Now that Xur is selling Fated Engrams after the recent Update 188.8.131.52, 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’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 Sunday. 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. Just be sure to bring plenty of Legendary Shards.
