Greetings, Guardians! Hope you’re doing well. This weekend, Xur is at the EDZ, near the Winding Cove. Want to know if he brought the goods? Read on.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur provides:
The Prospector is a full-auto Grenade Launcher with a few tricks up its sleeve. The Excavation Exotic perk allows you to hold down the fire button to continuously launch grenades. The grenades stick to surfaces and cook while the trigger is down, then explode simultaneously when it’s released. It’s a pretty entertaining weapon for PvE. Pick it up and find out if there’s gold in them hills (by aggressively and explosively mining them with The Prospector).
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
For Warlock fans of legendary Guardians (and once upon a time, comically ranged shotguns), Felwinter’s Helm is in stock this week. The Helm has the Warlord’s End Exotic Perk, making elemental melee kills cause a weakening effect in an area around you. It’s a neat idea that sounds handy in giant mobs. Give it a shot.
Hunters this week get access to the Wormhusk Crown, an Exotic Helmet that aims to keep them alive. Burning Soul, the Crown’s Exotic Perk, allows you to regain a bit of health and shielding when you dodge roll. If you didn’t complete Warmind, go ahead and grab the Crown; tools that help you stay alive are pretty solid.
Mk. 44 Stand Asides
(Having a database issue with the Mk. 44s. Thought I fixed all of these issues – apologies)
“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 has an Exotic Engram available for 97 Shards, as well as the recurring weekly Xenology Quest to pick up an Exotic Cipher.
Xur brought some goods this time. The Prospector is a fun Grenade Launcher, Felwinter’s Helm is OK, Wormhusk is a solid choice, and the Mk. 44s are always nice. If you’re missing any of these for your collection, give them a chance.
See you next week!
