Xur is back in Destiny 2, hanging out in the Tower Hangar behind the former Dead Orbit vendor. The Exotic vendor will be available until the weekly reset tomorrow and has quite the interesting selection. First off is Trinity Ghoul, an Energy combat bow that costs 29 Legendary Shards.
It fires an arrow that splits when released – scoring precision kills triggers “Lightning Rod” which causes the next shot to chain lightning between foes. What makes the weapon truly spectacular is its Catalyst since it allows Lightning Rod to activate from any Arc damage final blow. This essentially provides constant uptime for the trait and gives it excellent mob-clear capabilities.
The Exotic gear available this week includes Raiden Flux (Hunter chest), One-Eyed Mask (Titan helm) and Sanguine Alchemy (Warlock chest), each for 23 Legendary Shards. Raiden Flux is well worth picking up for Arcstriders since chaining together hits with Arc Staff increases its damage and duration. One-Eyed Mask used to be incredible overpowered but has been nerfed significantly, no longer highlighting enemies through walls, providing a damage boost and so on.
More Destiny 2 news will be revealed tomorrow with Bungie’s next showcase so stay tuned. The developer already confirmed new details for The Witch Queen and Season of the Lost (which sees Mara Sov return). Future content has also leaked for upcoming content – check that out here.
