Greetings, Guardians! Hope you’re enjoying this year’s Festival of the Lost. This week, Xur is hanging out at Watcher’s Grave on Nessus. Read on to browse his wares.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
The Graviton Lance is an interesting Exotic Pulse Rifle. Thanks to its high-recoil two-round burst, playing with it can feel a bit closer to a Scout Rifle than a Pulse. Getting over that small learning curve has upside, though; the Lance’s Black Hole intrinsic perk takes away the second shot’s damage falloff and raises its damage.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Lunafaction Boots are Warlock legs that as a little bit more to your Rifts. Alchemical Etchings give you higher reload speeds in a Rift, as well as longer effective range when using an Empowering Rift.
Do you like Bows? Are you a Hunter? Are you, let’s say, less than stellar at getting perfect Bow charges? If the answer those questions is “Yep,” then Xur has the answer for you: an Oathkeeper. These Gauntlets keep your charge in the sweet spot, no matter how long you hold your draw, thanks to the Adamantine Brace Exotic perk. Grab them if you’re having some issues with your Bow technique.
Ursa Furiosa gives you the ability to fight the Darkness with your bear hands. The Exotic Gauntlets carry the Ursine Guard perk, giving you Super energy when you block damage with your Sentinel Shield and raising movement speed while you have the Shield raised. They’re pretty good, especially in some endgame PvE content. Pick them up if you’re a fan of the Sentinel Shield or the bear motif.
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)
- Last Perdition (Energy Pulse Rifle)
- Cold Denial (Pulse Rifle)
- Main Ingredient (Fusion Rifle)
- IKELOS_SR_v1.0.2 (Energy Sniper Rifle)
- Temptation’s Hook (Sword)
- Bottom Dollar (Energy Hand Cannon)
- Kairos Function set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
