Xur is Here! - March 25th, 2016

This week XUR is located in the Tower Hangar. He is on the right side at the bottom of the stairs. When you spawn at the Tower, head right towards the Tower Hangar. Once you are at the first set of stairs, turn right at the bottom and you should see our wonderful/creepy exotics salesman right away.

This week XUR’s inventory contains:

Empyrean Bellicose (13 SC) Exotic Titan Helmet where the main perk is “Aiming weapons while airborne holds you in place. With full Super, Orbs recharge melee.” This is a decent exotic helmet for PvE if you like jumping in the air and shooting things but not so great for PvP as this could make you and easy target for snipers or even regular shots. A fun exotic to use in PvE and definitely worth the try, but if you are low on strange coins you could pass on this one.

Crest of Alpha Lupi (13 SC) Exotic Chest for Hunters where the main perk is “Keeper of the Pack – Revive fallen teammates and be revived faster. Supers generate an extra Orb.” Not the greatest PvE exotic for hunters but can still be really useful, there are just better possible exotics depending on the subclass you are playing, but definitely a SOLID PvP exotic especially for matches that have revive in it such as Salvage or Skirmish.

Alchemist’s Raiment (13 SC) Exotic Chest for Warlocks where the main perk is “Iron To Gold – Chance to gain Glimmer on Primary Ammo pickup. Orbs collected when your Super is full, recharge your grenades and melee.” This is a pretty decent Exotic overall especially for PvE and can obviously be used when you are low on glimmer. This chest piece can be paired extremely well with Warlock Sunsingers who use revive and the Tlaloc as their main primary weapon as you would have 2 of your grenades often especially if you are saving your Super for a revive.

Xur is also selling:

Invective (17 SC) This is an Exotic Shotgun with Solar burn. What makes this shotgun special is the perk “Invective - This weapon regenerates ammo over time” Couple that with full auto and final round and you have pretty awesome Shotgun for both PvE and especially PvP as you could use this shotgun without picking up Special Ammo. This gun is also really good for missions or Nightfalls with Solar burn such as the Black Spindle mission.

Legacy Engram – Primary Weapon Engram (31 SC) This week Xur is selling Primary Weapons Engram and could be really useful if you do not have many Year 2 Primary exotics unlocked OR if you are looking for a specific Year 1 weapon like the Thorn. They are extremely expensive at 31 Strange Coins so I would only suggest buying these if you have tons of strange coins to spare or are simply looking to complete your collection of Exotics. For getting Year 2 exotics you are probably better off spending the same amount of Strange Coins on Three of Coins as that is likely to net you more exotics for your Strange Coins.

This week all the exotics are decent but I think the Hunters Edge the win ever so slightly as that exotic is quite useful for PvP especially in Trials where every second counts.

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 but I am hoping he sells the Red Death next as it is an exotic I am still missing from my collection.

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.
