Xur Is Here With The Taken King Gear

Posted by 8th Gen Gaming on September - 18 - 2015


Since all of our old gear is essentially trash, never has it been more important for Xur to come to the tower with new stuff. He is disappointing us just outside the speaker chamber in the old tower. Just hang a left from spawn and go all the way to the far room and he is in front of the double doors.


Exotic Armor –

An Insurmountable Skullfort (Titan Helmet (Taken King) – 13 Strange Coins)

Young Ahamkara’s Spine  (Hunter Guantlets (Taken King) – 13 Strange Coins)

  • Defense – 280
  • Light – N/A (No Longer Applicable)
  • Strength – 50/63

  • Grants Landfall.

Exotic Weapon –

Legacy Engram – Heavy Weapon Engram – 31 Strange Coins

As if players weren’t pissed enough at Bungie, Xur isn’t even offering a weapon this week. This may look tempting, but make no mistake all the old worthless Exotics are mixed in to the random algorithm. So DO NOT WASTE 31 STRANGE COINS ON THIS. I tried it out and got my 5th Dragon’s Breath with 160 Attack.

This week Xur is also offering a Helmet Engram for 19 Strange Coins. In addition he has a consumable called Three of Coins which increases the chance that the next Ultra you defeat will drop an Exotic Engram. For 7 Strange Coins, this is a better play than the Heavy Weapon Engram. Instead of offering 5 Heavy Ammo Synthesis’, he is now offering 3 Synths for One Strange Coin.

In short Bungie and Activision nerfed everything everybody has down over the past year and made us pay an additional $40 bucks to do it.
