If you played Destiny, you may be familiar with Xur, the weekly Exotic item merchant. In Destiny 2, he’s back, and he now appears all over the map. This week, you can find Xur on Titan, taking shelter from the rain in a small building east of The Rig.
Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:
- Black Talon, sword: 29 Legendary Shards
- Wormhusk Crown, Hunter helmet: 23 Legendary Shards
- Stronghold, Titan gauntlets: 23 Legendary Shards
- Lunafaction Boots, Warlock boots: 23 Legendary Shards
- Isochronal Engram: 97 Legendary Shards
- Invitation quest: 9 Legendary Shards
Xur’s inventory caps out at 931 if you’re 950. He also offers specific rolls on each armor piece each week, giving out different perks for the same pieces.
Black Talon is a powerful Exotic sword from the Forsaken expansion. Its Exotic perk, Crow’s Wings, allow it to fire a Void projectile after two subsequent heavy attacks. Its trait, Tireless Blade, regenerates ammo on certain powerful blow kills.
The Black Talon isn’t the most useful sword in late-game activities, but it is a fun weapon. Adding a ranged attack to a sword takes away a lot of the weapon type’s usual danger. Instead of slamming your blade into enemies in their face, you can blast at them from a safe distance. If you don’t have Black Talon, you should add it to your collection. Just don’t expect to pull it out more than a couple times a year.
Wormhusk Crown is one of the campaign Exotics from Warmind, and you can earn the helmet from completing the campaign. Or you can buy it from Xur this week. The Exotic perk is Burning Souls, which heals you after dodging.
This is a powerful helmet in the Crucible, so if you’re a PvP player you should pick this up.
Xur’s roll this week is Void, and comes with 50 total stats.
These gauntlets have the exotic perk Clenched Fist, where guarding with with a sword increases movement speed and doesn’t drain sword ammo. Well timed guards that block damage also heal the Titan. Until swords are useful, these Titan gloves aren’t really worth using. Pick them up for your collection if you’re a Titan main, but don’t expect to use them anytime soon.
Xur’s roll this week is Arc, and comes with 52 total stats.
Lunafaction Boots are very powerful Warlock Exotic boots, and have been since the original Destiny 2. Their Exotic perk is Alchemical Etchings. This perk grants a reload speed increase while standing in a Lunafaction-empowered Rift. This Exotic got hit hard in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, but it’s still very powerful and worth using. You need these.
Xur’s roll this week is Solar, and comes with 48 total stats.
If you haven’t completed the Invitation quest yet, Xur is still offering it for nine Legendary Shards.
