Joyous Xursday, readers! Our enigmatic Agent of the Nine has returned for the weekend, gifts in tow. Head to the Winding Cove in the EDZ to collect.
This week, for 29 Legendary Shards, Xur carries:
The Colony is an Exotic Grenade Launcher with a pretty neat gimmick. Insectoid Robot Grenades, its Exotic perk, turns missed grenades into angry insectoid robots that hunt down and damage the nearest target. You can miss by quite a bit and still get your damage in; bees find a way. Serve the Colony reloads while the weapon is stowed, making it just that bit more useful in PvE. Pick it up if you didn’t get one when Curse of Osiris was going on; it’s a really fun gun.
And for 23 Legendary Shards, Xur offers:
Crown of Tempests
Are you a Stormcaller who just doesn’t feel like they’re lawnmowing enough enemies? Xur has you covered with this week’s Exotic Warlock Helmet, an Arc Crown of Tempests. The Crown’s Conduction Tines perk lets Arc ability kills recharge Arc abilities, all while increasing the duration of your Arc Super. Stormcallers are in a solid spot right now, so pick up this fancy hat and never stop Arcing.
Speaking of typing Arc a lot, Xur brings our Hunter friends an Arc Raiden Flux chest piece. The Flux’s Synapse Junction intrinsic perk makes Arcstrider Super hits do more damage and extend Super duration. I’m told it’s got some handy, if niche, uses, so go grab one.
Mask of the Quiet One
Titans this week are treated to an excellent Exotic helmet in a Void Mask of the Quiet One. Dreaded Visage, its Exotic perk, gives you energy for everything except your Super when you take damage, and Void ability kills trigger health regen. Unless you somehow consistently avoid getting hit, this helmet is a great pickup.
Xur also carries an Exotic Engram, providing a random Exotic piece for 97 Legendary Shards, the Five of Swords for Nightfalls, and The Invitation of the Nine for 9 Legendary Shards, if you haven’t completed that quest yet.
Kudos to Xur for bringing a bunch of goods I can actually recommend this week! I missed The Colony last time, so I’m definitely going to grab it this weekend. I feel the need to give people the gift of bees.
What do you think about this weekend’s selection from Xur? Let me know, and I’ll see you next week!
