Xur is every player's favorite mystical merchant that sells Exotic and Legendary wares to Guardians around the solar system. As quite the shy guy, Xur only shows up on the weekends from Friday's daily reset time to Tuesday's weekly reset time. This guide details what Xur is selling, notes any must-have god roll or a high-stat gear you should know about, and pinpoints the Xur location.
Where is Xur this week?
The Xur location changes every week, but you can find him at Watcher's Grave, Nessus currently. From the landing zone, go down the path and climb up the giant red tree. You’ll find the Agent of the Nine standing on the lowest tree branch.
What is Xur selling this week?
This week, Xur is selling a few high-stat Exotic armor pieces. While Hunters and Titans can purchase their 68 total stat armor pieces, Warlocks have one that is 67. It's worth mentioning that the Helm of Saint-14 has 23 Resilience.
The stats are in the mid-60's for the Substitutional Alloy Legendary armor set, which isn't anything to rave about, but the stats are better than recent weeks.

Also, you can pick up the Xenology quest from Xur every week. Play through 21 Vanguard activities, or win Crucible and Gambit matches to get an Exotic Cipher. Use the Exotic Cipher currency — you can hold five at a time — at the Monument to Lost Lights for an Exotic weapon. Completing missions in the Exotic Mission Rotator playlist gives bonus progress to the Xenology quest.
