Xur is Here! – Mar 11th, 2016

This week XUR is located in the Tower Hangar. He is in the basement area at the very back. When you spawn at the Tower, go right to the Tower Hangar and head down the  first set of stairs. Once you are past the first set of stairs, turn left and head down 2 more stairs into the basement and XUR will be located and the very back, on your left, in the corner.

This week XUR’s inventory contains:

An Insurmountable Skullfort (13 SC) – Exotic Helmet for the Titan where the main perk is that ‘Improved Transfusion – Kills with Storm Fist immediately trigger health regeneration. Respawn with full melee energy. Gain a second melee charge.' Not the greatest Titan exotic in the world in my opinion, unless of course you’re a fan of punching everything, then this is the exotic for you.

Achlyophage Symbiote (13 SC) – Exotic Helmet for the Hunter where the main perk is ‘Last Man Standing - Golden Gun gains one additional shot per use. I can see this helmet being really useful for PvP and some PvE encounters. Again, not the greatest hunter exotic in the world but pretty decent especially for Gunslingers.

Heart of the Praxic Fire (13 SC) – Exotic Chest for the warlock and its major perk is ‘Praise The sun – Further decreases all ability cooldowns while Radiance is active. Greatly increased Agility.' This might actually be the BEST exotic for Sunsinger Warlocks.. If you pair this exotic with max Discipline, you can throw more than a few extra grenades during Radiance with this exotic equipped, making this chest a strong candidate for both PvE AND PvP.

So it looks like this week’s winners are the warlocks (again) with decent exotics for both the Titan AND the Hunter but one of the BEST exotics for Warlocks. No exotic weapon this week unfortunately but can’t complain since XUR JUST sold the Hawkmoon last week.

Xur is also selling:

Exotic Engrams Helmet (19 SC) – Again buy one if you really want to, or have tons of coins to spare but spending the same amount on three of coins is more likely to net you more exotics.

Legacy Engram (Helmets) – This week’s legacy engram is an exotic helmet engram and probably not worth spending you coins on unless you have tons to spare and are looking to complete your year 1 collection. Getting a helmet you are missing in BOTH year 1 AND year 2 would be optimal but at 31 SC, you are probably better off saving your strange coins for something else.

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 this week so you can have a look at those as well.

Overall a decent week for XUR even though he ended up selling a lot of Helmets this week. I am STILL waiting for him to sell something like the RED DEATH or ZHALO, both of which I am missing still.

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.
