Greetings, Guardians. Are you ready for the Witch Queen? If not, maybe Xur can help you out. This week, he’s at the EDZ. Read on to check his stock.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
From the Forsaken expansion, Trinity Ghoul is an Exotic Bow that blasts unlucky enemies with lightning. One of its two unique Perks, Split Electron, lets the bow fire a split arrow whose spread can be controlled by fully drawing and aiming down sights. The other, Lightning Rod, rewards precision kills by letting the next shot create a chain lightning storm. By their powers combined, the two perks make the Ghoul a pretty neat PvE weapon, kind of like the old Zhalo Supercell, but with a little more work required. If you like Bows and/or lightning, give it a try.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Are you a Voidwalker who loves to Blink everywhere, but hates the internal cool down and lack of Radar? The Astrocyte Verse is here for you. Its Exotic perk, Move to Survive, lets you recover from Blinks and draw your weapon faster after Blinking. You also gain Blink distance and keep your Radar up. It isn’t the flashiest, but if you really like Blinking everywhere, it’s worth looking at.
Graviton Forfeit is an Exotic Hunter Helmet that helps you sneak up on foes. Vanishing Shadow, its Exotic Perk, raises the duration of effects that make you invisible, and recharges your Melee ability quicker while you’re harder to see. If that sounds like your jam, pick it up.
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:
- Enigma’s Draw (Sidearm)
- Seventh Seraph Officer Revolver (Hand Cannon)
- Nature of the Beast (Energy Hand Cannon)
- Wishbringer (Energy Shotgun)
- Long Shadow (Sniper Rifle)
- Interference VI (Grenade Launcher)
- Stars in Shadow (Energy Pulse Rifle)
- Swordflight 4.1 set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
