‘Destiny’: Xur’s Exotic Goods For November 6, Impossible Machines Return For Warlocks

Destiny players have another weekend of Xûr, Agent of the Nine, to look forward to starting Friday, November 6. Warlocks get the boost this week with an Exotic piece from The Taken King, while the other classes get upgrades from the first year of the PlayStation and Xbox shooter. It’s hard to follow-up last week’s sale, so let’s see how Xûr does.

This weekend, Xûr can be found across from the Speaker in the Tower North. Simply head to the left when you first spawn in the Tower, and you’ll find him standing in front of a large, round door across from the speaker’s entrance. Here’s where you can find him on the Tower map.

There’s only one returning Exotic armor piece this week, and that is the Impossible Machines Gauntlets for Warlocks, which Xûr sold in his first visit following the launch of The Taken King. The Titan and Hunter helmets are upgrades from Year One, but this is the first time they’ve been on sale in Year Two.

Those unhappy with Xûr’s offerings can always pick up the Exotic Helmet Engram. Players at 300 Light and above will get a shot at a 310 Light offering. Just remember that the Cryptarch looks at your current inventory to determine what you get and may give you something for another class if the current class is loaded with Exotic helmets.

For those wondering what to get, here are a few helpful hints.

Helm of Inmost Light

Destiny Helm of Inmost Light Striker Helmet (PlayStation, Xbox) [Image via Destiny]This is the first time this particular Titan Striker helmet has been sold by Xûr since the release of Destiny: The Taken King. Unfortunately, this was a mid-tier helmet before and its value has likely dropped more since the Sunbreaker subclass was introduced. The innate “Recklessness” perk provides the “Death From Above” and “Headstrong” abilities by default, which gives a huge boost to the Fist of Havoc Super.

The optional perks with this roll are a choice between “Ashes to Assets” and “Second Thoughts.” The former gives bonus Super energy from grenade kills while the latter gives bonus Super energy from Special Weapon kills. Finally, the third column perk is “Invigoration,” which give bonus Melee energy when picking up Orbs of Light.

The 77 Intellect roll is excellent, but Destiny players can likely do better with the perks by using Glass Needles. “Inverse Shadow” is a superior perk over the other optional perks, if you still want to play Striker at this point.

Celestial Nighthawk

Destiny Celestial Nighthawk Hunter Helmet (PlayStation, Xbox) [Image via Destiny]This is another upgraded Year One helmet on sale for the first time since Xur’s return to the Tower in The Taken King. The Celestial Nighthawk is a Gunslinger Hunter specific helmet that is still a top-tier Exotic in PVE for Golden Gun users. The ability to generate six times the normal damage in a single shot with the “Big Game” perk works well to bring down Majors and stagger Ultras.

The optional bonuses for the helmet are a choice between gaining Super energy from grenade kills with “Ashes to Assets” and gaining Super energy from Heavy Weapon kills with “Heavy Lifting.” The final column perk is “Infusion,” which replenishes health when you pick up Orbs of Light.

The 46 Intellect/51 Strength stat roll is a slightly above average, though you want more Intellect with this helmet since you only get one shot.

The Impossible Machines

The innate perk is called “Lightning Rod” and gives the subclass the “Landfall” ability perk without taking up a spot on the skill tree.

The other available perks include “Impact Induction” for bonus grenade energy on melee hits, plus the choice of faster reload speed on Fusion Rifles or Pulse Rifles.

The 43 Intellect/44 Strength split stat-roll is decent, but placed in the right spots for the Stormcaller subclass to regenerate Super and Melee abilities faster.
