Xur is Here! – June 10th, 2016

This week XUR is located in the Tower

Where is XUR location in the Tower?

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:

The Glasshouse (13 SC) – Exotic helmet for the Titan where the main perk is ‘Bathed in Light- Blessings of Light and Weapons of Light last longer.’ This is really good helmet for Titan defenders especially for PvE when doing harder content such as raids or Challenge of elders and especially solo’ing things as this makes your Titan defender buffs last longer which incidentally IS one of the Titan defender perks so you can no use something else and have essentially have two perks.

Don’t Touch Me (13 SC) – Exotic Gauntlets for the Hunter where the main perk is ‘Defensive Reflex – Taking damage from a melee attack makes you briefly invisible.’ This is one of the better Exotics for Hunters and can work with any of their subclasses. They are especially usefull in certain situations as well. Loads of thralls melee-ing you in the face? Or even to keep those pesky warlocks away in PvP. If you are missing these Exotic Gauntlets then definitely think about picking them up this week.

The Ram (13 SC) – Exotic Helmet for the Warlock where the main perk is ‘Strength of the Ram – Increased armor. All Voidwalker melees trigger Life Steal on hit.’ This exotic is tailored to the Voidwalker subclass of warlocks and can be quite useful. The increased armor will give you that much of an extra edge in PvP and the Life Steal on all melees increase your survivability.

Xur is also selling:

Red Death (23 SC) – Exotic Pulse Rifle where the main perk is ‘Red Death – Each kill heals you and speeds up reloads.’ This is maybe one of the most useful guns for PvE, especially in tight situations or if you are trying to flawless something. The perk speaks for itself and basically increases your survival rate drastically. Unlike the life support perk where there is only a chance it will trigger when you are on low health, this will trigger after each kill. Definitely one of the Exotics worth buying from Xur this week.

Legacy Engram – Special Weapons Engram (31 SC) – Before the April update I would have told you to save your strange coins unless you were looking to complete your Year 1 collection and you had the coins to spare. However, since the April update a lot of Year 1 specials have also been brought to Year 2 and so it might be worth buying 1 or 2 of these Engrams especially if you have been stocking up on Strange Coins as you could potentially now unlock both a Year 1 AND Year 2 weapon.

This week all the exotics are decent and it is hard to pick a winner but I am going to have to go with the Hunter. Again this week was pretty close to call.

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.
