Greetings, Guardians, and Happy Holidays to those of you that celebrate. Xur isn’t taking the holidays off; he’s at the EDZ and ready to spread some cheer (for a price). 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. If you didn’t pick it up a long time ago, I’d suggest giving it a try.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
This week, Xur has a pretty high INT roll on a pair of Lunafaction Boots. Their Alchemical Etchings give increased reload in a Rift, and Empowering Rifts also add a lowered damage falloff from range.
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.
Lion Rampant is a niche set of Titan legs. Their Jump Jets perk grants aerial mobility and airborne hipfire accuracy. That’s super situational, especially given the class they belong to, but definitely neat if it pays off. Try them out. Run rampant. Become a sky lion.
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)
- The Last Dance (Energy Sidearm)
- Cold Denial (Pulse Rifle)
- Toil and Trouble (Shotgun)
- First In, Last Out (Energy Shotgun)
- Falling Guillotine (Sword)
- Royal Entry (Rocket Launcher)
- Wild Hunt set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
