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 Nessus, standing on Calus’ barge.
Xur’s inventory this week consists of the following:
- Telesto, fusion rifle: 29 Legendary Shards
- Shards of Galanor, Hunter gauntlets: 23 Legendary Shards
- Dunemarchers, Titan boots: 23 Legendary Shards
- Transversive Steps, 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.
Telesto is a returning exotic from Destiny, added back in during Curse of Osiris. This fan-favorite fusion rifle has two perks that make it special. First is Unplanned Reprieve. When you fire Telesto, the fusion rifle particles attach to the enemy and explode at a latter time. Second, Harbinger’s Pulse causes multikills to reload your kinetic and energy weapons.
Telesto is easily one of the most fun weapons to use in Destiny 2. It’s very powerful in strikes and public events for clearing large groups of enemies or dealing with a single threat. But more importantly, Telesto simply feels exotic every time you fire it. Don’t pass up the opportunity to add Telesto to your armory.
Shards of Galanor
Shards of Galanor is a shadow of what it once was after some serious nerfs. Shards’ Exotic perk is Sharp Edges, which refunds Super energy depending on how many blades you hit with Blade Barrage. The Super refund is capped, so you’ll never get the entire thing back. If you love Blade Barrage, it’s a great way to Super a bit more every Strike or Crucible match you play. If you’re a Hunter, don’t miss out on these gauntlets.
Xur’s roll this week is Solar, and comes with 48 total stats.
Dunemarchers are excellent Titan boots that everyone should pick up. Their exotic perk, Linear Actuators, increases your sprint speed and causes your next melee after sprinting to chain damage to nearby foes. The secondary part of this perk is almost unnoticeable. The reason you want Dunemarchers is to increase your speed. This exotic is awesome for PvP and can even come in handy on some raid fights like The Gauntlet. If you don’t have these boots for your Titan, be sure to grab them.
Xur’s roll this week is Arc, and comes with 50 total stats.
Transversive Steps are the Warlock speedy boots, and they’re a very good catch-all exotic. Their exotic perk, Strange Protractor, increases your sprint speed and automatically reloads your energy weapons. The reloading is secondary to just how powerful movement speed is in Destiny 2. Make sure to pick them up if you don’t have them yet.
Xur’s roll this week is Arc, and comes with 48 total stats.
If you haven’t completed the Invitation quest yet, Xur is still offering it for nine Legendary Shards.
