Greetings, Guardians, and Happy Halloween! Xur is at the Tower this week. Read on to check out his goods.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Vigilance Wing is an Exotic Pulse Rifle with a neat look and a couple of nice tricks. The first is Harsh Truths, an Exotic Perk that gives the rifle a 5-round burst. The second is Last Stand, which improves performance and recovery time when you’re the last remaining member of your Fireteam.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Known to victims of the Mandela Effect as Karnstain Amulets, these Warlock Gauntlets are here to help you stay alive and well. They do this with the Vampire’s Caress Exotic perk, which turns melee kills into heals — both a large one up front, and another over time. They’re very good gloves, so pick them up and start making uncomfortable slurping noises into your mic as you heal up by turning other Guardians to space dust.
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.
A throwback to Forsaken, the Antaeus Wards are a fun and useful set of Titan legs. Their Reflective Wards Exotic Perk improves your slide and gives it the ability to reflect projectiles. It’s not easy, but once you get the timing down, you can reflect any number of projectiles, up to and including Supers like Nova Bomb. That’s useful and hilarious, making the Wards an Exotic I can absolutely get behind.
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:
- True Prophecy (Hand Cannon)
- Seventh Seraph Officer Revolver (Hand Cannon)
- Seventh Seraph VY-7 (Energy SMG)
- Wishbringer (Energy Shotgun)
- Long Shadow (Sniper Rifle)
- Steel Sybil Z-14 (Sword)
- The Third Axiom (Energy Pulse Rifle)
- Kairos Function set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
