This week, you’ll find Xur on the EDZ once again. Drop in the Winding Cove then head to the northmost end of the area. Hop up the rocks and you’ll find the Agent of the Nine at a little camp overlooking the cove.
What’s he selling? This week, you can grab the following from him:
- Wardcliff Coil: 29 Legendary Shards
- The Sixth Coyote: 23 Legendary Shards
- Verity’s Brow: 23 Legendary Shards
- One-Eyed Mask: 23 Legendary Shards
- Isochronal Engram: 97 Legendary Shards
- Invitation quest: 9 Legendary Shards
It’s worth noting that Exotic armor now rolls with one of three different Elemental types, as well as a variable number of total stat points. I’ll tell you both of those in the listings below. I’ll also give you my thoughts of the viability of each piece of gear, but if you have the Legendary Shards to spend then it’s always a good idea to buy anything you don’t already have. Gotta fill out those Collections!
The Wardcliff Coil is a chaotic rocket launcher that fires a spread of corkscrewing munitions. It is, with no pun intended, a blast to use. Less dominant in PVP than it used to be, and there are better meta options for most PVE situations, but still a lot of fun to play around with.
The Sixth Coyote
A Hunter Exotic chest piece, The Sixth Coyote gives you two charges of your dodge ability. There are a number of Hunter abilities and Seasonal Mods that can combo with dodging, so if you find yourself using that ability a lot then The Sixth Coyote might be worth trying. But because Hunters are so spoiled for choice when it comes to Exotics, there are usually better options. This one is Void elemental and has a stat total of 47.
Verity’s Brow is a Warlock Exotic helm that causes energy weapon kills to regenerate grenade energy for you and allies. This season, there’s hardly any reason to use it — Nezarec’s Sin outperforms it in almost every situation. There are worse Warlock Exotics, but that’s not saying much. This one is Solar elemental and has a stat total of 48.
There’s a bug right now in Destiny 2 where Titans are unable to unequip One-Eyed Mask in Crucible. But seriously, folks, this Exotic is absurdly good in PVP situations: it “marks” enemies who damage you, allowing you to track them more easily. If that’s not enough, it also rewards you for killed marked enemies by giving you an overshield and a damage buff. One-Eyed Mask is basically essential for Titans in Crucible, and as such it’s getting a nerf next season — it will no longer provide an overshield. For now, though, it’s not only the best PVP Titan Exotic, it’s probably the best PVP Exotic in Destiny 2. This one is Void elemental and has a stat total of 48.
Xur’s Isochronal Engram now includes Year Two Exotics, so if you’re missing any of those you can grab this to fill out your collection.
