Destiny 2"s spring celebration, the Revelry, is in full swing, and with the weekend comes an addition to the party: Xur, the Agent of the Nine. As usual, Xur"s got a new crop of Exotics for sale, plus his newly amped-up Fated Engrams. Add that to the new Arbalest Exotic linear fusion rifle you can earn in the Revelry, and there are a whole lot of Exotics to snag this weekend.
Head to the EDZ on Earth to find Xur--he"s in the Winding Cove area. When you land, head north toward the wall of the area, and climb up to the crashed Fallen dropship to find Xur hanging out on the cliffside. Xur is selling the Wardcliff Coil Exotic rocket launcher this week, which fires a mess of arc rockets with every pull of the trigger. It recently got nerfed by Update 2.2.1, so Wardcliff Coil won"t melt bosses quite as effectively as it did for a while there, but it"s still a super strong Power weapon, especially in the Crucible.
Xur"s armor haul this week starts with Raiden Flux for Hunters, a chest armor that powers up your Arc Staff Super attack. When you can rapidly make attacks with the staff, Raiden Flux increases the Super"s duration and increases the damage it does, making it great for crowd control in places like the Verdant Forest. For Titans, there"s Hallowfire Heart, which speeds up the recharge of your Solar abilities, especially when your Super is fully charged up. Warlocks are the lucky ones this week: they get Lunafaction Boots, the only Forsaken Exotic in Xur"s bag. The boots cause your rifts to automatically reload allies" weapons, and Empowering Rifts make weapons more effective over longer ranges. Just don"t equip them when you"re using Whisper of the Worm, since Lunafaction"s reload perk negates Whisper"s ammo-generating perk.
Here are all the Exotics Xur offers this week and what they"ll cost you:
- Wardcliff Coil (Exotic rocket launcher) -- 29 Legendary Shards
- Hallowfire Heart (Exotic Titan chest armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Raiden Flux (Exotic Hunter chest armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Lunafaction Boots (Exotic Warlock leg armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
You can also purchase a Fated Engram from Xur, if his inventory doesn"t interest you. Fated Engrams can now dish out Exotics from the Forsaken expansion, as well as the Year One group. Grabbing one of the engrams gives you a random Exotic that you don"t already have, provided you can afford it. Fated Engrams will run you 97 Legendary Shards, and you can only get one per account each week. Xur also offers the Five of Swords challenge card for free, which allows you to add difficulty modifiers that increase your score in Nightfall runs.
Finally, Xur brings another Invitation of the Nine weekly bounty. It gives you a Powerful gear drop when you complete it, as well as a bit of story about the Nine and the Drifter, and a new Lore entry. As usual, you"ll have to clear out a mess of enemies of various types, and complete a Strike. You can kill the enemies anywhere in the solar system, though.
