To the left of the Tower Watch is the North Tower where you’ll find the ominous Speaker.


The Speaker: he speaks on behalf of The Traveler, apparently. More importantly you can exchange Motes of Light for a unique Emblem. Once you hit level 20, he offers Exotic Warlock Bonds, Titan Marks and Hunter Cloaks.

New Monarchy: buy New Monarchy Emblems here with Crucible Marks, as well as Legendary Crucible Armour. You can also buy a New Monarchy clock, mark or bond if you’ve got a lot of Glimmer.

Guardian Outfitter: Eva lets you customise your Guardian. When you reach level 20 you’ll be able to buy shaders to customise even further and it won’t affect your stats.


The Tower Hanger is the place to visit for all your vehicle needs, and it also houses two of Destiny’s factions.


Shipwright: the Shipwright is here to sell you a new Sparrow or Jumpship. Sparrows are more practical, as you’ll need them to travel large distances on maps. These Sparrows have higher speed and more durable.

Once you get past level 5 you’ll be able to buy ship blueprints. These are cosmetic choices for when you’re cruising through space to different destinations.

Vanguard Quartermaster: Roni only accepts Vanguard Marks but he will exchange Spinmetal, Helium Filaments, Spirit Bloom and Relic Iron for them.

You can buy Legendary Armour and Weapons here with Vanguard Marks after you’ve reached level 20. He also has a few rare Sparrows on occasion.

Dead Orbit: Crucible Marks and Glimmer are needed here to spend on Dead Orbit Emblems, Crucible Weapons and Armour. you can buy a Dead Orbit bond, cloak or mark here to earn Dead Orbit rep for completing Bounties.

Future War Cult: you can buy a Future War Cult Emblem here but you’ll need a Future War Cult rank. You can buy high powered weapons here with your Crucible Marks.
