💠 This Weekend in Destiny 2 – Xûr and Trials (11.05 – 11.09)

💠 This weekend you can find Xûr hanging out at Giant’s Scar on Io and Trials is live on Endless Vale, view activity info below and recent news.

NOTES: Downtime for Update begins on Monday, November 09 @ 7 PM PST, which means Xûr, Trials and all other in game activities will become unavailable until  Tuesday, November 10 @ 9 AM PST. Due to a new season and update coming next week, I will need to get some things updated. However, I do plan on getting the Weekly Reset post out as usual next week but may hold off on posting the Weekly Reset infographic until the week after Beyond Light arrives.



A peddler of strange curios, Xûr’s motives are not his own. He bows to his distant masters, the nine. Starting in Season 12 (Season of the Hunt), Xûr will also offer a quest to earn one Exotic Cipher on a weekly cadence. Source: bungie.net

Players should review our help articles on items being deprecated at the start of Year 4 and items being removed at the end of Season of Arrivals for more information on items, quests, and currencies that will be removed from player inventories at the start of Year 4. Some items listed can be used or turned in for rewards, such as Glimmer, weapons, and armor, so be sure to do that before November 10.

Additionally, certain Titles will become Legacy Seals and unavailable to earn at the start of Year 4. Players should be sure to equip the following Titles before November 9 at 7 PM PST (0300 UTC), after which they will be unavailable to earn.

Beginning November 10, two new kiosks will be available in the Tower. First up, the Quest Archive will be found next to the Postmaster. Bungie’s hope is that this removes some of the confusion when trying to track down the odd quest that you previously discarded. Additionally, this will be the place for any veteran players to pick up the New Light Quest on November 10, if they have a strong desire to experience new player tutorials and the (re-)introduction to the Cosmodrome.

Next up, the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive will be found by the Vault. Here, players may acquire various Exotics and Legendary Pinnacle/Pursuit weapons that were once available through now-retired quests. As many of these Exotics were tied to lengthy quests or difficult objectives, Bungie wanted to make sure their prices reflected those previous efforts. Players will need an amount of Glimmer, destination materials, masterworking materials, and an Exotic Cipher or Ascendant Shard in order to purchase the Exotic or Legendary which they desire. Bungie is also introducing a currency, Spoils of Conquest, which can only be acquired when completing raids. This currency will be required for Exotics previously tied to Vaulted raids.
