Destiny: What is Xur Selling - July 17-19

Find out what's worth buying from the Agent of Nine this weekend in Destiny.


If you’ve put any amount of time into Destiny since release, you’re probably already quite familiar with the weekly exotic salesmen, Xur. Arriving at 5AM ET on Fridays, Xur can be found lurking within the tower until Sunday at 5AM ET. Players can then find, speak with, and purchase various items from Xur in exchange for Strange Coins.

This week players can find the Agent of Nine in Tower North, next to The Speaker’s Observatory. Sadly, for reasons unknown at this point in time, Xur isn’t selling an Exotic Weapon as usual. Instead he is carrying three pieces of Exotic Armor and the other usual goodies.

Exotic Inventory:

  • Helm of Inmost Light – Exotic Titan Helmet
  • Celestial Nighthawk – Exotic Hunter Helmet
  • Sunbreaker Guantlets – Exotic Warlock Gauntlets
  • Exotic Shard
  • Exotic Helmet Engram

Other items for purchase include:

  • Pulse Rifle Telemetry
  • Auto Rifle Telemetry
  • Machine Gun Telemetry
  • Plasma Drive
  • Emerald Coil
  • Heavy Ammo Synthesis

Currency Exchange Options:

  • 2X Strange Coins - Mote of Light

      What a cluster fuck this week is considering no weapon and there is the screenshot of it possibly being the Big G from German, but that could easily be fake

            Yeah no shit, they are getting G, Ice Breaker, Thorn, Black Hammer...=(

            I wish Bungie took took the nerf up approach. I'm just getting into this game and already all the cool weapons that I've read about and have put on a checklist to seek out are falling from glory.

              If you are playing a hunter, grab celestial nighthawk and level it up. They may take my ice breaker but they'll never take my 1 shot golden gun

                Yeah that and Achlyophage Symbiote are defacto Gunslinger epic armors to choose from.

                Except they are...

                Golden Gun is considered a handcannon --- so with the handcannon nerfs, they are also nerfing Golden Gun.

              At this point I'm just hanging in to every exotic I get. Never know when Bad Juju might become the best weapon in the game for a few months.

                Bad JuJu is already a top tier PvE weapon. I'm am excited to see Gjallarhorn get a heavy nerf because it will open up so many options for PvE (including BJJ)

                  With no elemental damage, I don't find bad juju to be that good. I'm no expert but having arc/solar/void makes a huge difference imo.

                  Truth is pretty awesome, better tracking, three in the chamber, and you get 8 rockets instead of 7

          To me it seems like they are going to hit a brick wall down the road with the exotic weapons, especially if they continue the "year" damage upgrade to bring the base up to snuff.

          I'd like to see the modifiers become an item that can be equipped on the weapon. Allow grey to exotic have X slots to equip modifiers. Let exotic have access to two exotic modifiers. Let legendary have access to one. Toss in legendary, rare, common, grey modifiers.

          Say something like bad juju's super regen would be an exotic modifier or ice breakers ammo regen. ADS modifiers would mostly be grey.

          At the end of the day Bungie can adjust modifiers as necessary and not make an entire weapon potentially useless. It will also allow players to do very unique builds.

      They should sell Gjallarhorn every week now that it's nerfed.

      I'm still unsure how the Black Hammer nerf works.

        White Nail perk now pulls ammo from your inventory, not from thin air.

          No shit? I've only had the gun for a week or two (and never paid attention I guess), but that's what I assumed it was always supposed to do. Huh.

      I'm personally happy Auto-Rifles are getting a boost. I like Suros Regime and Hard Light - I'd like to be able to use them.

        I got Hard Light and Monte Carlo after the nerf, so I am very excited to see how those play. Also the changes to Necrochasm look pretty good too. Gonna be fun!

        Now if they could just make this happen sooner...

      If you are going to do this article every week, any chance you can give us weapon/armor perks and stats for what is being offered? The names of most armor are useless to me, but if I can see the stats, I will actually know if I want it or not.

        I'll see what I can do about getting information like that added in. ;) Shouldn't be too much of a hassle.
