Xur has arrived once again to barter with Guardians in Destiny. The vendor shows up weekly to offer “rare” and exotic items for players to get an extra edge on enemies around different planets and, of course, Guardians in PvP matches. Bungie’s Destiny is out now for PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One.
One could say that Xur is derpy this week, although another person could say that he is fairly decent in what he has to offer via his exotic inventory. If you want to find him head to the Hangar and go to the dead-end that over-looks the ships leaving and entering the Tower.
The somewhat derpy Xur this week is carrying the Crest of Alpha Lupi chest piece for Titans, the Ram helmet for Warlocks and the Shinobu’s Vow gauntlets for Hunters. The three armor pieces are up for debate and could benefit some Guardians who are new or who have been playing for a little while, but there are also other options out there that are way better. It’s suggested that you take a look at all three armor stats for a better understanding.
As for the weapon, Xur has the Invective shotgun. The weapon is something that is alright — seeing that there are better shotguns out there — but if you don’t own it already, or if you are a collector, this weapon is something that is optional to buy. Note: Just remember that there are other shotguns out there that are better.
With that said you can watch a visual guide that Mesa Sean has up showing Xur’s inventory.
If you are looking for a quick summary on exotic item pricing a bulleted list sits below:
- (Titan Chest Piece) Crest of Alpha Lupi – 13 Strange Coins
- (Hunter Gauntlets) Shinobu’s Vow – 13 Strange Coins
- (Warlock Helmet) The RAM – 13 Strange Coins
- (Shotgun) Invective – 17 Strange Coins
- (Legacy Engram) Special Weapon – 31 Strange Coins
- (Bundle) Invective & Storm’s Reproach – 25 Strange Coins
- (Bundle) Truth & Heart of Gold – 25 Strange Coins
TL;DR: Skip the bundles and the Legacy Engram. If you want to you can pick up the Heavy Ammo Synths and Three of Coins. Before buying the armor sets and the weapon, carefully look over the Crest of Alpha Lupi, Shinobu’s Vow, The RAM and Invective (shotgun) to see if they match your play style as a newcomer or intermediate player — seeing that the named exotic items are not for endgame players.
