It's the final weekend of Xur before The Dark Below DLC hits Destiny, which means that for a lot of items it could be now or never. It's also the first time Xur will have the new exotic shards for sale, which are the new upgrade materials for exotic armor and weapons moving forward.
So, where is Xur this week? He's right inside of the tower hangar in his usual spot. However, once Destiny players get up close they will be plenty disappointed with his selection.
While most have become used to Xur selling armor for multiple weeks in a row, this is the first time he has had the same exotic weapon for the second weekend in a row. Yes, the Plan C is back, so those who missed out on it have another opportunity to pick up a pretty solid fusion rifle.
The rest of us, though, are left to look forward to next weekend. The good news is since he doesn't have a new exotic weapon, Destiny players can feel free to spend their Strange Coins on exotic shards.
For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:
- Helm of Inmost Light (Titan Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Young Ahamkara’s Spine (Hunter Gauntlets) – 13 Strange Coins
- Light Beyond Nemesis (Warlock Helmet) – 13 Strange Coins
- Plan C (Fusion Rifle) – 17 Strange Coins
- Exotic Shard – 7 Strange Coins
As we mentioned, this is the last week before some big changes hit Xur. First and foremost, Xur will next week have new potential exotics in his inventory from the DLC expansion. We've already seen a screenshot of Dragon's Breath in his inventory, but the hope is that he will plenty of new items to offer moving forward.
Next week will also mark the introduction of the new upgraded exotic weapons and armor, which will help players bring their favorite gear up to par with the new DLC items. However, procuring these upgraded exotics won't be a simple Strange Coin transaction, but will instead require an exotic shard, the old exotic weapon, and 7,000 glimmer. It's an exciting time for Xur fans.
What do you think of Xur's selection? What would you like to see him have available after the DLC launches?
