Xur, the mysterious traveling merchant from the ‘Destiny 2’, has been a source of curiosity and fascination among Destiny players worldwide. Each week, Xur emerges somewhere within the vast Destiny landscape to vend various rare and exotic items, offering them to the Guardians in exchange for Legendary Shards. For the uninitiated, pinpointing Xur’s location can be an undulating task every week as he changes his location frequently.
The moment has come once again: Xur has returned to Destiny 2, and this week (Friday, 29th December to Sunday, 31st December) he can be found in The Watchers Grave on Nessus.
The Watchers Grave on Nessus
To find Xur this week, Guardians need to head to The Watchers Grave location on Nessus. If you’re new to Destiny 2, Nessus is the third location that gets unlocked after playing the campaign. It’s a beautiful, lush planet studied with Vex architecture.
The Watcher’s Grave is towards the North of the planetary map. When spawned at the Watcher’s Grave spawn point, turn a little to your left, and you will see a giant tree atop a hill.
Step-by-Step Guide to Locating Xur
- Open the Director: Select Nessus from the range of options on the left side of your screen.
- Travel to The Watcher’s Grave: After selecting Nessus, click on the icon titled ‘The Watcher’s Grave’— it’s located in the top part of Nessus. This will initiate your journey through the game’s landscape.
- Look for the Giant Tree: Once you spawn at the landing zone in Watcher’s Grave, turn left towards the tall tree. Xur is located up on a branch of that tree. There are a few different ways to climb the tree, but the easiest one is from the back.
- Search for Xur: Upon reaching the tree, you’ll need to climb the trunk in order to find Xur. Keep an eye out for a red, blurry figure waiting in the branches— that will be Xur!
Now that you’ve found Xur, it’s time to check out the inventory of exotic items he’s brought this time. The unique collection typically includes one Exotic weapon, one piece of Armor for each class of Guardian and a handful of other consumable items. Xur’s offerings change every week, so remember to check out his store on the weekly.
With Epoch Splinters in hand, you can use them to purchase these precious items and enhance your performance in Destiny 2. Remember, Xur is only in town from Friday to Sunday every week, and he’ll disappear again at the weekly reset on Tuesday, so be sure to visit him while he’s around.
