Following their extensive tour of the new Destiny social space last week, Bungie gave players their first look at the Trials of Osiris event. During the livestream, Bungie explained how the Trials of Osiris event will work, proving that this will be the most challenging Crucible event to date.
With that challenge comes a need for top tier gear, especially because, like Iron Banner, power matters during the Trials of Osiris. And what better place to find top tier gear than Xur, Destiny‘s favorite exotic vendor.
This week, players can find Xur in the Vanguard Quarters. Right after spawning into the Tower make a beeline for the straights directly ahead and follow the hallway all the way down. There, tucked off on the right side, should be Xur ready to offer his exotic wares.
Xur’s Exotic Selection
Although Destiny veterans are unlikely to see much value in Xur’s exotic armor and weapons, he does have a few pieces for those looking to complete their sets. The Heart of Praxic Fire was once one of the most highly coveted exotic pieces in the whole game, but now Xur has sold it a few times. Still, any Warlocks who didn’t manage to pick it up before are encouraged to do so. The same goes for the Ruin Wings and the Don’t Touch Me gauntlets – both are extremely useful.
For this exotic weapon offering, Xur has Hard Light, a high rate of fire auto rifle with a sleek, futuristic design. There are certainly better Destiny exotics out there, even in the auto rifle category, but the Hard Light certainly has its fans. So, those who can spare the extra Strange Coins may want to give it a chance.
For a full rundown of Xur’s items and prices see the list below:
- Ruin Wings (Titan DLC Gauntlets) – 13 Strange Coins
- Don’t Touch Me (Hunter DLC Gauntlets) – 13 Strange Coins
- Heart of Praxic Fire (Warlock Chest Piece) – 13 Strange Coins
- Hard Light (Auto Rifle) – 23 Strange Coins
- Exotic Shard – 7 Strange Coins
- Exotic Gauntlet Engram – 23 Motes of Light
There are only a few more weeks until weapon upgrade paths in Destiny, even those for exotics, change completely, so there isn’t much incentive to upgrade now. Either way, here’s what Xur has available.
- Knucklehead Radar
- Young Ahamkara’s Spine
- An Insurmountable Skullfort
- Crest of Alpha Lupi (Titan)
- Heart of Praxic Fire
- Voidfang Vestments
- Bad Juju
- Red Death
- MIDA Multi-Tool
- Plan C
- Pocket Infinity
Overall, not a weekend selection for Xur, especially in the armor department. No matter if you’re a Titan, a Hunter, or a Warlock, each of these exotic armor pieces is well worth the Strange Coins.
