💠 This weekend you can find Xûr hanging out at the Winding Cove on the EDZ and Trials is live on Bannerfall, with Adept Reed’s Regret Linear Fusion Rifle as the Flawless Weapon. Check out the article below for a more detailed look at Xûr’s Inventory, Trials, and more!
XÛR, AGENT OF THE NINE
A peddler of strange curios, Xûr’s motives are not his own. He bows to his distant masters, the nine. (Note: Xur offers random rolls on Exotic Armor meaning the stats/numbers are different with each purchase. Legendary weapon/armor stays the rolls that it shows but change every time Xur arrives.)

dmg04’s note: “As this TWAB is running pretty long, we’ll do the math for you. That’s Fourteen hours of downtime. We hope you can use this time to get some sleep, prep some tasty food, or do whatever your heart desires before diving into The Witch Queen. With the announcement of one million Guardians already having pre-ordered, we’re also expecting a bit of a queue as things open up. Please stay tuned for additional details.”-dmg04 (Bungie Senior CM)

Delays could occur but let’s hope for the best!
Yesterday’s Bungie article went over some details about weapon crafting. Here is some details directly from Bungie.net on what weapon crafting is and how it will work.
All players will be given an introductory quest to explain crafting. Guardians will uncover the Deepsight ability and be introduced to the Enclave in the first and second missions of The Witch Queen, which is free to all players. This is where you’ll make your first Glaive (a new weapon archetype). Materials will be provided for your first crafted weapon and you will be given a short tutorial on how to find those materials for future crafting. A subset of weapons and archetypes will be craftable from the start, but more will be added in the future.
In order to craft weapons, you’ll need to do some research. Patterns are your first requirement. Some will be acquired through quest completions, while others can be earned by completing various gameplay objectives. Once you’ve earned your desired Pattern, it can be crafted at any time with the required materials. Now, it’s all about the mixings.
After reaching the enclave and crafting your first Glaive, randomly rolled weapons throughout the game have a chance to drop with a new ability: Deepsight Resonance. This will be used as you begin to target specific traits to craft. As an example, if you find a Deepsight Resonance Legendary Auto Rifle with the Rampage perk, you can complete an objective and extract the essence of the perk to then craft a weapon with Rampage or another perk that increases damage.
Like current weapons, not every weapon Pattern will be compatible with every trait, but you’ll have a good list of traits to mix and match as you customize a given weapon to your desired specifications. Through the Enclave, you’ll also be able to kick things up a notch and enhance your traits to strengthen their flavor.
Leveling Your Weapon & Enhanced Traits
Once a weapon is crafted, Guardians may begin to increase its level by using it in activities and by defeating enemies. This is where the bulk of your crafting playtime will be. The more you use your weapon, the faster you’ll unlock its full potential.
Enhanced stats and traits can be unlocked when reaching higher levels, granting slight bonuses to your weapons capabilities. Our goal through this system is to give players a reason to invest in their weapons, far beyond what Masterworking could offer in the past. Each weapon can now act as a longtail pursuit as you look to make your freshly crafted weapon the best it can be.
You will have the ability to reshape your crafted weapons in the Enclave if you want to mix up the components of your weapons after you finish crafting them. You can switch up what barrel, mags, or traits you choose so you don’t feel like you got locked down one path forever.
At launch, one weapon memento will become available for players to earn through Gambit, unlocking a Gambit-themed appearance and tracker. Rank up your weapon to max level, head back to the Enclave, and apply your freshly earned memento for some sweet flair.
More of these will come online through Trials of Osiris and Grandmaster Nightfalls. Bungie has more plans for mementos down the line, and are excited to introduce a new endgame rarity cosmetic item for players to chase as they build out their new arsenal of weaponry.
Legendary weapons aren’t the only thing that you’ll be able to craft. The upcoming Osteo Striga Exotic SMG and three class-unique Exotic Glaives can also be crafted through the Enclave, once you find their respective Patterns, of course.
While Legendary weapons can be crafted from the ground up, Exotic crafting is more about fine-tuning something with a defined identity. You may have the opportunity to customize things like barrels or stocks, while preserving the Exotic look and feel. Looking for a longer-range profile for the weapon, or opting to shred through your enemies up close and personal? Through the Enclave, you can do just that.
|NOTE: Info about Weapon Tuning arriving in Season 16 will be added to this page. View the Twitter thread for a summary at Sandbox changes.|
As always I hope you all have a good weekend, take care!
