The new Destiny exotics you'll be waiting on from Xur in The Taken King

New, 32 comments

Bungie is using Instagram to show off some of the new exotic gear that will be available for players in the upcoming Destiny expansion, The Taken King. Each of these pieces include new unique perks that didn't exist on any year-one Destiny gear. The Empyrean Bellicose, for example, appears to grant the Warlock's Angel of Light ability to Titans. A common theme also appears to be making Orbs of Light, previously only useful for regenerating player's super abilities, more useful for players whose supers are fully charged.

If this tease is any indication, we can expect to learn more about the game's exotics in tomorrow's livestream, which will also show off the new voice of Ghost, as well as a new location, the Dreadnaught. Bungie's livestream will kick off at 11 a.m. PT tomorrow, Aug. 26, on the studio's Twitch channel. Check out Bungie's full livestream schedule for more information, and see our Taken King StoryStream for everything you need to know about the expansion.

My will is not my own, Guardian. The Nine have commanded me to reveal Exotic treasures you may discover in your future. I will speak with you tomorrow. - Xûr, Agent of the Nine

I have information, but I do not know yet if you are the one it is meant for... Titans: fly like the shadows with the Empyrean Bellicose. Aiming your weapons while in the air will hold you in place for a short time. Orbs collected when your Super is full will recharge your melee ability. - Xûr, Agent of the Nine

You must adapt to persist, Guardian. The Chaperone Exotic shotgun fires a single slug shot and grants an Agility boost when equipped. Your precision kills will grant a brief increase to Handling, Range, Rate of Fire, and Stability. - Xûr, Agent of the Nine

Warlocks: reshape the world and turn iron to gold with the Alchemist's Raiment. Collecting Primary Ammo will give you a chance to gain glimmer. Orbs collected when your Super is full recharge your grenades and melee. - Xûr, Agent of the Nine

An end will come, Guardian. Bring it about sooner with Telesto, a vestige of the Queen's Harbringers. This Fusion Rifle will attach projectiles to your foes and detonate with a delayed Void blast. Multikills with this weapon will drop Orbs for your allies. - Xûr, Agent of the Nine

Hunters: these Sealed Ahamkara Grasps are filled with Nightmare Fuel. They will provide you with an additional melee charge and your melee damage will have a chance to reload your Primary Weapon. - Xûr, Agent of the Nine

I cannot endure this place any longer ... Before I depart, a final offer for you. Sleeper Simulant: a Fusion Rifle equipped in your Heavy Weapon slot. This weapon's laser tears through enemies and ricochets on hard surfaces. - Xûr, Agent of the Nine
