The clip is now live so listen to DeeJ for your selves say Xur is not random. At about 0:58 seconds off screen in chat I ask if what xur sells is random his response at 1:04
I see people on reddit questioning what this clip is dated, while I am unsure of the exact date it was sometime in November.
Also if you are questioning wether or not DeeJ is in fact the one speaking, look at the symbol next to his name.

Since anytime I tell people what xur is selling is not random they don't believe me or ask me for source, I'm posting the proof.
When they were doing the bungie bounty thing on twitch people were asking what xur was selling the next day to which I asked him if xur was RNG and he told me what he sells is all planned out.
So for the person that called me out on my last post about this plz don't jump to conclusions and be an asshole when someone tries to clarify a false fact. Not everyone on here is a 12 year old making up facts as they go.
Edit 1: Some people are wondering why the link is broken, first off I posted this well over a month ago, since then bungie for whatever reason took it off.
Edit 2: I do have it recorded and I will be uploading shortly when I have a free moment at work.
Edit 3: A new link is now live!
Edit 4: I swear, some of you people are just plain dumb. "Oh, Deej responded and said himself that he was mistaken in the video. The game was just new and he was still learning everything." What other response were you expecting him to say? He was not going to deny the fact that it was his voice on the video saying "No, xur is not random!". He was on damage control, how are you so easily manipulated?
Edit 5: Also, to the people claiming that I am making a big deal out of nothing, who gives a -blam!- if hes random or not. Let me state again, I do NOT give a shit if he is random or not. My thread was made in response to the trend going on around the time of the original post. Alot of people were arguing if xur was random or not. I simply had the facts, and made them available. Sit there and spew your toxic words all you want, "muted for stupidity", "this guys a moron".. etc..etc.
Hey, there. Let me attempt to clear some things up here.
Xur is randomized. There are times when we can pull off miracles like making him stay in the Tower longer when Christmas is cancelled, but his inventory is governed by the same chaos that influences all the loot drops.
Comments in that video about "the plan" were more about the fact that we know what he's selling before he appears, even if we can't reach out and stock his shelves ourselves. We set him in motion, and his will is not his own.
Also in that video, you can hear me confessing that I'm not always in the loop when it comes to these things, so you should take pre-game lobby comments among friends with a grain of salt. That video was from months ago, and I was still learning the intricacies of all the new systems that we launched with the game.
These conspiracy theories are symptoms of a burning desire. Gjallarhorn is the most popular ask that comes my way. I know you want it, even more than the collective requests for more vault space. As you can see, these are things that are beyond my control. I don't have one either.
I'll do my best to talk to the people who create the code that drives Xur, and see if we can make him more valuable to you in the future.
