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: Xûr offers random rolls on Exotic Armor meaning the stats/numbers are different with each purchase.)

Departs: Tuesday, April 12 @ 10 AM PDT

Notes from Patch Notes:

  • Fixed an issue that was causing Xûr to offer Exotic armor with low stat rolls and identical stat allocation. 
    • This fix has caused an issue we are now investigating where the advertised stats on Xûr’s inventory screen may be slightly different than the item you receive.  
    • It’s been a very eventful time for Xûr, but he’s ready to get back to work. He thanks you for your patience.

TRIALS INFO

Rewards in Season 16

All six weapons in the upcoming Trials pool will have the following origin traits:

  • Alacrity: Gain increased reload, stability, aim assist, and range when you are the last living member of your fireteam or running solo.
  • One Quiet Moment: Grants increased reload speed when out of combat.

Here are two weapons that were added this season:

  • Scout Rifle (260 RPM Rapid-Fire Frame): Aisha’s Embrace
    • Keep an eye out for the oft-requested Triple Tap + Fourth Time’s the Charm combo, as well as some spicy options like Tunnel Vision + Multikill Clip.
  • Auto Rifle (Returning, 600 RPM Adaptive Frame): The Summoner
    • This returning classic has had some less popular perks trimmed from its per pools, replaced by new favorites like Heating Up and Focused Fury.

About Trials Rewards:

  • You can get extra rolls by winning more matches on your flawless card until you lose, and can get 1 extra Adept Reed’s Regret by turning in a 7 win card at Saint, in addition to legendary shards and glimmer.
  • You will also get a Pinnacle Trials Engram when you win 20 rounds and another when you win 7 matches.
  • Once you have reset your rank twice, you will receive Trials engrams. You may then refocus these engrams with Osiris to get the weapon/rolls you want.

Notes about Rewards (from a Bungie.net):

  • Ranking up gives you a Trials engram. 
  • Powerful Trials engrams show up every three rank ups before your first reset of the Season.
  • Just like the other ritual reputations, there are other rewards to earn every three ranks – and Trials ranks has one of the unique Trials weapons at Rank 10 and Rank 16 for each of the first three resets of Season 15. 
  • Trials Reputation is gained after completing matches, and is based on the amount of wins on a player’s Trials Passage. Each rank up in Trials Reputation will reward a Trials Engram. These Engrams will contain any piece of Trials gear that a player has previously earned.
  • Every 3 rank-ups will reward a powerful Trials engram. When Trials rank is maxed out, it can be reset for an Ascendant Shard or an Exotic Engram.
  • Pinnacle Gear will be given once per week, per class.
  • Once the Chest has been opened and players leave The Lighthouse, a new Flawless Passage will need to be completed to return.

Help us achieve our $77,777 goal by heading to the RMHC Donation Page and casting your votes for Team Bungie.
