Xur is Here! – Feb 5th, 2016

This week XUR is located in the North Tower near where the speaker is located. You head towards the entrance of the Speaker’s room but keep going PAST the entrance all the way to the end and XUR will be on your left side. You should be able to see him right away on your way to the speaker anyways.

This week XUR’s inventory contains:

Immolation Fists (13 SC) – Gauntlets for the Titan that unlocks explosive Pyre for the Sunbreaker subclass of Titans. Pretty decent exotic if you’re using the Sunbreaker class otherwise rather useless.

Radiant Dance Machines (13 SC) – Boots for the Hunter and its major perk is that you move more quickly while aiming your weapon. Cool I guess….At least the look funky so there’s that.

The Stag (13 SC) – Helmet for the warlock and its major perk is that once per life your super charges really fast if all your teammates are dead and a chance to spawn with an overshield. I can see this helmet being really useful in certain situations but there are probably better exotics out there depending on what subclass you are playing.

So it looks like this week’s winners are the titans and possibly the warlocks.

Xur is also selling:

SUROS Regime (23 SC) – One of my personal favorite exotic auto rifles but Year 2 entices players to save their exotic NOT for the primary weapon slot but rather the special weapon slot OR ESPECIALLY the heavy weapon slot with the introduction of exotic swords. If you have coins to spare, it is definitely worth trying out as you may come to love the gun regardless of the fact that it takes up an exotic slot.

Legacy Engram (Special Weapons) – This week’s legacy engram is a special weapons engram and probably not worth spending your strange coins on unless you have tons to spare and are looking to complete your year 1 collection. Getting an icebreaker if you didn’t have it in Year 1 would still be pretty nice.
If you already have most of these exotics or nothing really appeals to you, spending your Strange Coins on Three of coins is still probably your best bet.

Below is a video showing you exactly where to go when you first spawn in the Tower if my instructions at the top were a bit unclear. The video also shows the various items XUR is selling so you can have a look at those as well.

Overall not a great week for XUR, still waiting for him to sell something like the RED DEATH or one of the warlock chest exotics I am missing, but I am probably better off just buying a bunch of three of coins at this point.

Let me know if XUR bought you something you really wanted this week or if you are waiting from him to bring a specific exotic in the comments section below.
