Greetings, Guardians. Hope you’re doing well. Xur is hanging out on Nessus, near the Watcher’s Grave area this weekend. Read on to see what he’s brought along.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Known to victims of the Mandela Effect as Karnstain Amulets, these Warlock Gauntlets are here to help you stay alive and well. They do this with the Vampire’s Caress Exotic perk, which turns melee kills into heals — both a large one up front, and another over time. They’re very good gloves, so pick them up and start making uncomfortable slurping noises into your mic as you heal up by turning other Guardians to space dust.
Liar’s Handshake is a Hunter Exotic that gives the upper hand (or knife) in a fistfight. When you use your Arc melee or get punched, Cross Counter triggers, allowing use of a strong counterpunch that heals you. Not the most practical Exotic, but fun and useful in some niche situations.
Mk. 44 Stand Asides
“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 carries an Exotic Engram, providing a random piece of Exotic armor for 97 Legendary Shards, the Five of Swords for Nightfalls, and The Question Exotic Quest for a sweet Legacy Engram.
Collector’s note: this is this first time Liar’s Handshake has popped up in Xur’s goods in a long, long time. Grab it if you need it.
See you next week!
