Destiny: Xur’s Location and Exotics List for October 23-25

Just in time for the King's Fall Raid on hard mode.

Today, as we celebrate Xur’s arrival, we have other good news to get excited about as well. Today, October 23, 2015 is also the release date for the Destiny: The Taken King, King’s Fall Raid on hard mode. The recommended light level for this new challenge is 310 so if you’re not there yet or not even close, you might want to continue to run the King’s Fall Raid on normal mode for a while until you get your light up.

That being said, guardians are always welcome to test their luck and wager their lives against the odds. Since Xur doesn’t sell his exotics at 310 light, it won’t be wise to take your new items into the King’s Fall Raid on hard mode  right away. But if you have extra items and exotic shard lying around that you can use to infuse what you buy from Xur right away then they just might be worth taking into the raid after all.

Regardless of whether or not you’re even thinking about Xur and his items in relation to the King’s Fall Raid on hard mode, if you wound up here on this post, then you’re probably still wondering where Xur is and what he’s got in store for us. Don’t worry. We’re getting to it.

This week Xur is located at the Tower. Specifically, he is down the stairs in the Hangar area in the lounge near the jukebox and emotes collection area.

Xur has no featured exotic weapon this week.

However he does have a year two exotic chest engram and a year one heavy weapon legacy engram.

“These Engrams contain Year One Exotics (at Year One Attack and Defense levels) for players who want to finish up a Collection. They strongly bias towards Exotics not already in your Blueprint Collection, to help fill in the blank slots – excluding Mythoclast and Necrochasm, which are still only available from their Year One sources.”

In addition to the above, Xur is selling the void drive, emerald coil, heavy ammo synthesis, three of coins, and his newest item, glass needles. You can also exchange strange coins for motes of light if you wish.
