Greetings, Guardians! Hope you’re doing well. Xur is in the EDZ this week. Read on to see his stock.
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:
Phoenix Protocol is a Forsaken Exotic for Dawnblades. Its Battle-Hearth Exotic perk gives you Super energy for kills and assists made in your Well of Radiance. It’s fantastic for when you’re neck deep in enemies; keeping the Well up can keep you and your Fireteam alive and powerful through the onslaught. The Protocol is a strong Warlock option. Go get it.
Xur has brought two Aeon Exotics this week, which brings a unique opportunity to try them out if you don’t have them already. Cult of Aeon items have the Aeon Energy perk, which provide buffs to others wearing Aeon gear. Theoretically interesting, but the buffs are often worse than wearing a more specialized individual piece of gear.
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 Carbine (Auto Rifle)
- The Last Dance (Energy Sidearm)
- Wishbringer (Energy Shotgun)
- Truthteller (Grenade Launcher)
- Honor’s Edge (Sword)
- Tomorrow’s Answer (Rocket Launcher)
- Gensym Knight set [Head, Arms, Torso, Legs, Cloak] (Hunter)
See you next week!
