Xûr hit the Tower on Friday, February 12 hot on the heels of a promised Destiny expansion and sequel. PlayStation and Xbox players can look forward to a set of niche Exotic gear that may not necessarily be overpowering, but does provide for some fun moments.
Destiny players looking for Xûr should turn right and head toward the hangar after spawning at the Tower. Once you’ve gone through the long hallway and entered the hangar, turn right and you will see the seller of Exotics. Here’s where you can find him on the Tower map, just to be sure.

For those wondering what to get, here are a few helpful hints.
While the Peregrine Greaves are an extremely niche set of boots, it is hard to argue with the perk rolls this week. The choice between carrying extra Shotgun or Machine Gun ammo is excellent and the “Arc Double-Down” perk fits perfectly with this Exotic piece.
Meanwhile, the 57 Intellect and 59 Strength stat roll is as close to perfect as you are going to get. No need to re-roll.
The perk choices that come by default with Xur’s offering are not great, however. Destiny Hunters should aim for “Inverse Shadow” as a third column perk with either “Infusion” or “Better Already” in the final column. Reroll this with as high an Intellect stat as can be obtained to shoot for faster Super regeneration.
The 75 Intellect roll is not the best for Obsidian Mind, as you’ll prefer a pure Intellect stat roll to maximize the Super ability potential of the helm. A Glass Needle change on this helmet to get that, plus the “Inverse Shadow” perk in the final column, is recommended.
