Greetings, Guardians. Hope you’re doing well. Xur is at the EDZ this week. Read on to check out his wares.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Telesto is a Fusion Rifle that plays a little bit differently than its peers. The Unplanned Reprieve perk makes Telesto fire what are essentially delayed Void sticky bombs, rather than the standard Fusion Rifle death lasers. It sounds weird, but once you’re used to it, Telesto becomes one of the most interesting and satisfying Exotics in the game to use. It’s at its best in PvE, where you can take advantage of Harbinger’s Pulse to reload your weapons on multikills, but I’ve also had a blast with it in PvP, despite it being a bit suboptimal there. Telesto is fun. Don’t hesitate to grab it.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Winter’s Guile is a set of Exotic Arms designed to make your Warlock beat enemies into space dust more efficiently. Kill something with a melee, and Warlord’s Sigil activates, giving you more Melee damage to keep the flurry of blows coming.
The Bombardiers are a strange Hunter leg piece. Their Exotic perk, Parting Gift, plants a bomb when you dodge roll, with a different explosion effect based on your subclass.
Mk. 44 Stand Asides
“Pardon me, coming through,” says the flavor text on these Exotic Titan legs. You’d be wise to heed that warning; the Stand Asides are a force to be reckoned with. At full health and when sprinting, the Exotic Perk Seriously, Watch Out triggers, giving an overshield while sprinting and plenty of Melee energy on a successful Melee ability hit. If you want to be the scourge of PvP, these are the boots for you.
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)

- Distant Tumulus (Energy Sniper Rifle)
- Wishbringer (Energy Shotgun)
- Temptation’s Hook (Sword)
- Bottom Dollar (Energy Hand Cannon)
- Vigil of Heroes set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
