Xûr is Destiny 2’s Exotic gear merchant. He appears every weekend to sell the game’s most coveted items in exchange for Legendary shards, but if you’re a casual player with limited shards to spend, it can be hard to know which of his wares is most worth your investment. That’s where we come in.

Xûr appears every Friday at 17:00 GMT (10:00 Pacific), and will stick around until the Tuesday reset. We’ll update this guide shortly after he arrives, so if you’re reading this, you need only read on to learn where he is, and which are the best items he’s selling this week.

Ever since the Forsaken expansion, Xûr’s icon no longer appears on your director, so he’s not quite as easy to track down as he used to be. That said, his appearances in the EDZ, Titan, Nessus, Io, and The Tower have so far been in the same places he frequented in vanilla Destiny 2. When he appears in the Tangled Shore or Dreaming City (as he surely will) we’ll be sure to let you know exactly where.

Xûr is back on Titan this week, at the Rig. He is selling:

Telesto, an Exotic energy fusion rifle, for 29 legendary shards
Aeon Swift, Exotic Hunter gauntlets, for 23 legendary shards
Verity’s Brow,  an Exotic Warlock helmet, for 23 legendary shards
Stronghold, Exotic Titan gauntlets, for 23 legendary shards
A Fated Engram, which guarantees a non-duplicate Exotic, for 97 legendary shards.

Telesto gives you Unplanned Reprieve, which has fusion projectiles attach to opponents and detonate on a delay. Bungie’s experience with the Needler is well-served here, and you can add great performance at range and fast handling speeds to Telesto’s accolades – not to mention how multikills will instantly reload kinetic and energy weapons. This gun is okay in PvE, but it’s an absolute monster in PvP. This pick-up is nearly essential, if only so you’ll be able to keep up with everyone else in Crucible this week.

Aeon Swift gives nearby allies Aeon-equipped allies a boost to ability energy every time you dodge. Warlocks get grenades, Titans get melee, and Hunters get dodge. It’s all solid stuff, but it suffers from the same problem all the Aeon gear does – if your Fireteam isn’t similarly kitted out, it’s basically useless.

Verity’s Brow offers The Fourth Magic, which boosts grenade charges for both you and your allies. Great if you’re a team player, letting you and your pals grenade spam everything that stands in your way – but you probably already knew that. Verity’s Brow is your reward for completing the Warmind campaign, which makes it fairly redundant as a Xur purchase if you’re current on even the most basic content.

Stronghold gives sword-wielding Titans much more in the way of defensive options. With the Clenched Fist perk, guarding with a sword increases your move speed and doesn’t drain ammo, and any shot you block immediately after a guard will restore your health. This makes sword builds much more viable, but obviously you have to be willing to run a melee build for it to be worthwhile.
