Xur November 20, 2015

Hi,

It’s supposed to be another Xur-tastic Friday, right? Remember how I said yesterday that Xur might have a good stash today? Not so much and no Exotic Weapon to buy.

Immolation Fists | Titan Sunbreakers [13 Strange Coins]
Accelerant: Unlocks the Sunbreaker subclass node Explosive Pyre for free. Enemies brought down by your hammer explode, chaining fiery Solar damage to other enemies.

This sounds interesting. It’s new to the Destiny universe. I wonder if it can be used with one of these two alternative options:

Flameseeker: Your Hammer of Sol will alter its flight path to seek out your enemies.
Fleetfire: Enemies felled by your fire grant you bonus agility and reload speed. Stacks up to 3 times.

I use Flameseeker. Combined with Accelerant, that could be fun.

Destiny™ HUNTER | GEAR EXOTIC: Don't Touch Me

Don’t Touch Me | Hunter Class [13 Strange Coins]
Defensive Reflex: Taking damage from a melee attack makes you briefly invisible.

I am tired of seeing these Gauntlets. I didn’t use them in Year One; I don’t use the Year Two version I have. I suppose I should try them out, but I already have Legendary Gauntlets at 294 Defense.

Destiny™ WARLOCK | GEAR EXOTIC: Claws of Ahamkara

Claws of Ahamkara | Warlock Class [13 Strange Coins]
The Whispers: Gain an additional charge for all Warlock-charged melees.

These Gauntlets also show up quite often. Above is the image of the Year One version; the Year Two version hasn’t changed. Again, it may be something different to try out for Warlocks, but the main node isn’t great.

I think the consensus is, players buy it and quickly find out it’s not the greatest choice to take up your sole Exotic Gear spot. I will purchase it to help complete my collection. I’d like to own all the Exotics in the game, even if I don’t use most of them.

Exotic Chest Armor Engram | [19 Strange Coins]
There are not a lot of Exotic Chest armor pieces in the game at this point.. It’s easier (and less expensive) to purchase Chest pieces directly from Xur opposed to rolling the dice with the Cryptarch. Only my Warlock wears Exotic Chest pieces from time to time. It depends on the situation.

Exotic Legacy Special Weapon Engram | [31 Strange Coins]
I am tempted to roll the dice here for a chance to get the Year One Icebreaker. In Bungie’s Weekly Update, I found out more Year One weapons are being brought into Year Two in a December update. If Icebreaker is a part of this, I’d love to use that weapon in the field.

Still, there are so many Year One Special Weapons, it’ll be too easy for the Cryptarch to give me something I don’t want.

Happy Friday. 🙂
Eric
