Greetings, Guardians, and welcome to October. Things aren’t quite spooky yet at the Tower, but I’m sure they will be soon. Get ready.
This week, Xur is on Nessus, near Watcher’s Grave. Read on to see what’s in stock.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Not too long ago, Hard Light was the gun to beat in endgame PvP content. Volatile Light used to remove damage falloff completely, and shots would ricochet and pierce for much more damage, turning narrow passages into kill boxes. The gun is still good, especially in PvE, where the nerfs don’t exist, but it isn’t the dedicated Trials carry gun that it used to be. Still worth grabbing if you haven’t already, in my opinion.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Sunbreakers are Exotic Warlock Gauntlets that allow you to provide opponents with more Vitamin D. By this, I mean their Helium Spirals perk makes your Solar Grenades last longer, up to 8 seconds. But that’s not all; Impact Induction makes Melee hits replenish Grenade energy, so you can keep throwing tiny Suns at your enemies if you’re aggressive enough. These used to be given away as a quest reward in the early stretch of the game, so you might already have them. If you don’t, give them a look.
Shards of Galanor
Shards of Galanor is a sharp set of Hunter Gauntlets for your knife-inclined Gunslinger. Sharp Edges gives you Super Energy for each Blade Barrage hit and kill, but only after you’ve finished the Barrage. Throw knives, get kills, get more knives again sooner. It’s that easy.
Crest of Alpha Lupi
Not every Exotic needs to be flashy to be good; the Crest of Alpha Lupi stands as proof. Survival Well, the Crest’s intrinsic perk, makes Supers grant more Orbs of Light while also making your Barricades trigger health regen. These two effects are huge, and can definitely save a fireteam in PvE and PvP.
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:
- Dire Promise (Hand Cannon)
- Jian 7 Rifle (Energy Pulse Rifle)
- Last Perdition (Energy Pulse Rifle)
- Seventh Seraph CQC-12 (Energy Shotgun)
- Hollow Words (Fusion Rifle)
- Berenger’s Memory (Grenade Launcher)
- The Keening (Energy Sidearm)
- Ancient Apocalypse set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
