Greetings, Guardians! Hope things are going well. This week, Xur is at Watcher’s Grave on Nessus. Read on to see what he’s brought.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
The Wardcliff Coil
The Wardcliff Coil is an Exotic Rocket Launcher. It separates itself from the pack partially by looking like some sort of weird domed beehive, but largely through Mad Scientist, the Exotic Perk that makes the Coil fire volleys of tiny rockets instead of one big one. The Coil is fun and effective in both PvP and PvE scenarios; those tiny rockets add up to some big damage. If you don’t have one yet, now’s a good time to buy.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Skull of Dire Ahamkara
The Skull of Dire Ahamkara is a Warlock Helmet with the Actual Grandeur Exotic Perk, which ups your damage resistance while Nova Bombing and grants immediate Super energy on kill, so you can do it again more quickly. It’s not a bad helmet, but Warlocks have a lot of Exotic armor to choose from, and the Skull isn’t the absolute best. That said, it’s pretty good, and situationally great, so give it a shot, oh bearer mine.
Orpheus Rig is a great set of Exotic Leg Armor for your Nightstalker. The Uncanny Arrows Exotic Perk gives you Super Energy for every enemy tethered by Shadowshot, meaning you are rewarded for using your Super well by getting another Super quickly. Given the right setup, the Rig is great for all sorts of PvE content. Grab it if you’re a Nightstalker player.
Citan’s Ramparts are an Exotic for the Titan who believes the best offense is a good defense. The Ramparts have the Assault Barrier Perk, allowing you and your Fireteam to shoot through your Towering Barricade. The Barricade loses some health and duration for this, but that may be a small price to pay for a one-way barrier.
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:
- Escape Velocity (SMG)
- Seventh Seraph Officer Revolver (Hand Cannon)
- Nature of theBeast (Hand Cannon)
- Distant Tumulus (Energy Sniper Rifle)
- Long Shadow (Sniper Rifle)
- Falling Guillotine (Sword)
- Bite of the Fox (Sniper Rifle)
- Anti-Extinction set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
