Greetings, Guardians. Hope you’re enjoying the Season of the Lost; there’s a lot of good stuff going on. This weekend, Xur is hanging out at Watcher’s Grave on Nessus. Let’s see what he’s got.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
Not too long ago, Hard Light was the gun to beat in endgame PvP content. Volatile Light used to remove damage falloff completely, and shots would ricochet and pierce for much more damage, turning narrow passages into kill boxes. The gun is still good, especially in PvE, where the nerfs don’t exist, but it isn’t the dedicated Trials carry gun that it used to be. Still worth grabbing if you haven’t already, in my opinion.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Voidwalkers this week have access to the Contraverse Hold, a set of Exotic Gauntlets. Their Chaotic Exchanger perk charges your grenade while reducing damage when you use your melee ability. Charged Grenades do amplified damage and return a random amount of Grenade energy.
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.
The Peregrine Greaves, a set of Titan legs, let you be a big, heavily-armored bird of prey with their Exotic perk, Peregrine Strike. The Strike gives you bonus damage when using Shoulder Charge abilities in the air. Pick up a set, practice your bird noises, and crack some skulls with a flying knee.
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:
- Dire Promise [Hand Cannon]
- Gnawing Hunger [Energy Auto Rifle]
- Cold Denial [Pulse Rifle]
- Distant Tumulus [Energy Sniper Rifle]
- Wishbringer [Energy Shotgun]
- Seventh Seraph SAW [Heavy Machine Gun]
- Trinary System [Fusion Rifle]
- Wing Contender Set (Helmet, Gauntlets, Chest, Legs, Cloak) [Hunter Armor]
See you next week!
