Xur, where have you been this week? This week, Bungie dropped Xur into Nessus, where he may be found near the Watchers Grave. This entails walking in a straight line until you reach the large tree with the red leaves, then turning around and up the path that winds around it to the first branch.
This week, Xur is offering 29 Legendary Shards for Hard Light, 23 Legendary Shards for Young Ahamkara’s Spine, 23 Legendary Shards for Crest of Alpha Lupi, and 23 Legendary Shards for Eye of Another World.
Once a week, our mysterious friend arrives in a succession of pre-determined locations, and we’ll teach you how to find him in Earth’s European Dead Zone, or EDZ, in this guide.
Look for ‘Winding Cove’ in the bottom left of the region when you access the EDZ on your Director menu. When you arrive, make your way ahead to one of the two Region Chest icons on the map. You’ll come upon a tunnel that goes higher to the ruins of a Fallen Ship, where you’ll discover Xur seated on a ledge.
With the correct jump abilities, you can also brute force your way up the cliff’s side. Legendary Shards, as employed by Xur items, are the remains of powerful things that can be used to upgrade equip or traded for other goods.
It’s also worth noting that Xur will drop things with equal levels of power to your character. Another new feature of Xur in the latest edition of Destiny 2 is that he now offers free Cipher Quests. The Quest will reward you with an exotic Cipher if you complete 21 Strikes or win the same number of Crucible or Gambit matches as in previous weeks.
Destiny 2 players have been excitedly anticipating Xur’s return since he brings with him intriguing opportunities to purchase weapons and other exotic things. At 6 p.m. BST, he comes in an apparently random place and gives rare gear in return for legendary shards, which can be obtained by deconstructing legendary gear or performing activities. Despite being random, Xur locales are highly specific
