Greetings, Guardians! Also, happy belated anniversary! We’ve passed the 7-year mark of the series. That’s a big milestone; here’s to 7 more. This week, Xur is at [location]. Read on to see the goods.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
An old favorite from D1, the Monte Carlo has arrived to help you lay the smackdown on your enemies. Literally. If you like punching stuff half as much as I do, you’re in luck; this Exotic Auto Rifle comes with the Monte Carlo Method Exotic perk, lowering melee ability cooldown with successful shots. Even better? The Method gives Monte Carlo kills a chance to fully reset your melee ability. After spraying or punching your way to a kill, the Markov Chain perk gives the Monte Carlo a damage buff, plus some ammo on melee kills.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Claws of Ahamkara
The Claws of Ahamkara are a simple, yet effective set of Warlock Gauntlets, oh bearer mine. Their Exotic Perk, The Whispers, grants an extra melee charge. There’s a fair amount of potential synergy with Warlock melee effects here; check it out if those synergies seem like the kind of thing you’d like to explore.
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.
Helm of Saint-14
Helm of Saint-14 is one of the cooler looking Titan hats, but nobody will ever know thanks to the Starless Night perk, which punishes people who step into your Ward of Dawn to look at it by blinding them. It’s a simple process; burn their retinas, punch their faces, win the fight.
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:
- Seventh Seraph Carbine [Auto Rifle]
- Seventh Seraph Officer Revolver [Hand Cannon]
- The Last Dance [Energy Sidearm]
- Timeline’s Vertex [Fusion Rifle]
- Long Shadow [Sniper Rifle]
- Honor’s Edge [Sword]
- Frozen Orbit [Energy Sniper Rifle]
- Woven Firesmith Set [Helmet, Gauntlets, Chest, Legs, Cloak] [Hunter]
See you next week!
