It was an exciting week for Destiny 2 players because not only did the beginning of the 5th season be marked by a new update, but we learned a lot about the content that comes to Black Armory in the coming months. The weekend came, meaning a new visit to the mysterious merchant Xur. He has a number of exotic items for sale; Here is what it has and where to find it.
Finding Xur is not different in the new season than it has been in the last 15 months. This week Xur is on Nessus. Go to the tomb of landing, take your Sparrow and head straight and left. You will see the tree tremendously; head to the base and swing the branch outward to find Xur.
Bungie discovered the new Exotics come into play so that Xur's stuff is more exciting than usual? If you ask this question, you probably already know the answer – fast. This is another one of the Year One Exotics, with one weapon and piece of armor each for Titans, Warlocks and Hunters.
Weapons is a Riskrunner, a fun rifle that causes chain lightning to damage the enemies. Hunters get the spoon of the young Ahamkar's spine (giving you improved travel missions when they cause damage to the ability). Warlocks Get Karnstein Armlets Gets (Buggy Kills Healthy Returns). Titans get Armamentary Armor Armor (providing additional cost of grenades). Yes, that means both Warlocks and Titans actually sell the same stuff as last week, though two-year version of the armor has at least a chance to sport different strengths.
- Riskrunner (exotic helicopter) – 29 Legendary Shards
- Young Ahamkara's Spine (Exotic Hunter Gauntlets) – 23 Legendary Shards
- Karnstein Armlets (Exotic Warlock gauntlets) – 23 legendary debris
- Armamentarium (Exotic Titanium Breast Armor) – 23 Legendary Shards
Xur also sells Destiny Engram, which is expensive, but guarantees that it is decoded in the Year One Exotic you have not already owned.
You have until the weeks reset on Tuesday, December 4, to visit Xur. That day is great for playing because it marks the release of The Black Armory, the first of the three extensions released as part of the annual pass. Introduces the new Exotics, the new Raid and other new content listed above but does not include a new campaign. However, the power level meter up to 650 (from the current 600 max) is increased.
