Xur is Here! – June 3rd, 2016

Where is XUR located this week?

This week XUR is located in the Tower. He is more specifically, located in the North Tower where the Speaker is located. Once you spawn at the tower you can either go straight and then left or just go left immediately and then straight into the North Tower. Once you are in the North Tower, XUR is located at the very end on your left. You go past the speaker’s entrance and you should be able to see XUR in the corner by the railing.

This week XUR’s inventory contains:

ACD/0 Feedback Fence (13 SC) – Exotic Gauntlets for Titans where the main perk is “Wrath Conductors – Taking damage from a melee attack deals damage in an area around you.” This is one of the cooler exotics for Titans and can certainly be useful in certain situations. Surrounded by tons of Thralls? Or to keep away those pesky warlocks form meleeing you in the face in PvP. If you have the coins to spare I suggest getting it and trying it out, another bonus is that they look pretty cool.

Graviton Forfeit (13 SC) – Exotic Helmet for Hunters where the main perk is “Elusive Shadow – Unlocks the Nightstalker subclass node Shadestep for free. Gain an evade on Circle, Circle.” This is one of, if not THE best exotics for Nightstalker Hunters in my opinion. What this does is give you Shadestep for free which is the final perk in the Nightstalker subclass tree, which then frees you from the dilemma of choosing between the Keen Scout perk AND Shadestep, now you can just be greedy and have both. Graviton Forfeit is definitely worth the Strange coins if you don’t yet have this exotic and play the Nightstalker subclass.

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 use 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:

Plan C (23 SC) – Exotic Fusion Rifle where the main perk is “Plan C – Charge and equip times are very short immediately after weapon swap.” This fusion rifle is an extremely good weapons especially when you look at the stats as well its perk, its also more accurate when firing from the hip. The only problem I have with this weapon is that it DOES take up am Exotic Weapons slot, so it might not be a top choice for PvP especially when you consider other exotics like the MIDA and so on. Even for PvE, while it could be fun to use and CAN come in handy in certain situations; there are certainly other exotics that are more useful overall. But again if you have the Strange coins to spare at this point, its still worth trying out. I think that Fusions rifles have also been buffed up a bit since the April update, making them more useful than before.

Legacy Engram (Chest) – This week’s legacy engram is an exotic chest engram and probably not worth spending your coins on unless you have tons to spare and are looking to complete your year 1 collection. Getting a chest piece 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. Remember too that you can get a chest piece for any class so if you have only one character the odds are definitely against you.

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 pretty good week for XUR, for me especially, as he ended up selling a lot of Exotics I don’t yet have. Hopefully next week he can have a repeat performance as well as bring along something like the Jade Rabbit.

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.
