The popular agent of Nine, Xur has yet again appeared today, on Friday, January 8, 2021. He regularly appears over the weekend at any locations within the game’s world. When the clock hits 12 pm EST, he shows up along with several exotic items like gauntlets, weapons, armours and many more. However, you will need to have Legendary Shards in order to complete the trade with the vendor.
Where is Xur?
As mentioned earlier, Xur regularly appears anywhere in the game’s four worlds. Xur previously used to have a random appearance but he has been showing up at some spots in recent times. The Winding Cove, Dead Orbit, and the Watcher’s Grave are the common spots for Xur. Xur hasn’t moved into new places apart from these in the past few months. Today, he appeared at the EDZ at Winding Cove.
What items has he brought today?
We cannot guess what the guy will bring until he appears. However, we can potentially confirm that he will bring at least one weapon and three wearables, including gauntlets, helmets, armours. Also, the vendor brings some consumables, which a player can get from him. He also brings one isochronal engram and player never forget to take this because this is something they generally don’t have. The items that you can get today by exchanging Legendary Shards with Xur are
Telesto – Exotic Fusion Rifle
Sealed Ahamkara Grasps – Exotic Hunter Gauntlets
Antaeus Wards – Exotic Titan Leg Armor
Getaway Artist – Exotic Warlock Gauntlets
Where was Xur last week and what did he bring?
Last week, he appeared at the Watchers Grave. He brought one weapon, one armour, and two helmets. The items were Merciless, The Bombardiers, One-Eyed Mask, and Astrocyte Verse. The wearables were worth 23 Legendary Shards whereas the weapons cost 29 Legendary Shards. These Legendary Shards are the remnants of powerful items and are purple in colour.
So, if you don’t have Legendary Shards make sure to collect them and pay Xur a visit. He will hang out at the location until next weekly reset on Tuesday.
