Greetings, Guardians! Hope the new year is still treating you right. Xur is at the EDZ this time. Read on to see what’s in stock.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Sweet Business is an Exotic Kinetic Auto Rifle, which is a boring way to describe an incredibly fun minigun. This monster of an Auto Rifle offers two Exotic Perks to help you lay down a terrifying amount of fire. The first, Payday, gives the gun a 150-round mag, better accuracy from the hip, and the ability to reload by picking up ammo packs. The second, Business Time, raises rate of fire and range the longer you hold the trigger down. Are there better weapons? Sure. But, like Telesto, Sweet Business is just fun to use. If mowing the Darkness (or unwary opponents in Crucible) down with a minigun sounds fun to you, go see Xur and throw Legendary Shards at him until he hands you Sweet Business.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Vesper of Radius
Vesper of Radius is a Warlock Chest piece that a) is pretty gaudy and b) adds an Arc shockwave to your newly cast Rifts, thanks to the Planetary Torrent Exotic Perk. Planetary Torrent also recharges Rifts faster when you’re surrounded by enemies, which is a neat little bonus.
Wikipedia tells me a Gwisin is some sort of Korean spirit. Neat! The Gwisin Vest is a solid piece of Hunter armor that rewards you for getting up close and personal with Spectral Blades. Its intrinsic Roving Assassin perk gives you Super energy every time someone falls to your Spectral Blades and you’re able to return to stealth. Give them the stabo and get rewarded.
You know what’s never bad? An extra grenade. Titans can opt into that simple, yet effective philosophy this week by picking up The Armamentarium. And Another Thing gives you another Grenade charge to blast your enemies with. Sometimes, that’s all you need. Pick it up if you don’t have it.
Xur also carries an Exotic Engram, providing a random piece of Exotic armor for 97 Legendary Shards, along with the Exotic Quest “The Question.”
The Witch Queen DLC added Legendary weapons and armor to Xur’s weekly drops, at 50 Legendary Shards and 1000 Glimmer per item. They are:
- Jian 7 Rifle (Energy Pulse Rifle)
- Seventh Seraph Officer Revolver (Hand Cannon)
- False Promises (Auto Rifle)
- Timelines’ Vertex (Fusion Rifle)
- Seventh Seraph CQC-12 (Energy Shotgun)
- Seventh Seraph SAW (Heavy Machine Gun)
- Swarm of the Raven (Grenade Launcher)
- Righteous set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
