Each week this mysterious dark tentacle faced guy known as Xur stops by the Tower, or sometimes he will post up in The Reef as well.
This week you can find Xur in the Tower down near the jukebox or cantina area. If you don’t know where that is then you might be doing Destiny wrong.
Xur brought with him three helmets, one for each class. For Titans be brought the Empyrean Bellicose, for Hunters he brought the Mask of the Third Man, and fro Warlocks he brought the Skull of Dire Ahamkara. Outside of those he also gives us an exotic engram and this weeks its an exotic chest piece. But be warned, this engram is for a random class and the only thing guaranteed is that you will get an exotic chest piece.
But let’s take a closer look at these helmets. The Empyrean Bellicose (and the other 2 as well) are obtainable in 4 ways, The King’s Fall Raid, Nightfall, random drop in TTK, or from Xur. It’s main perk is AntiGrav Thrusters which while aiming your weapon in air will hold you in place fro a short time and orbs collected while your super is full will recharge your melee.
This marginal at best, honestly. The “suspended animation” thing can be really useful in pvp to hover over doorways and whatnot but the orbs recharging your melee is a problem. If you want to orb farm off of your fireteam you can’t really do that with this helmet. I mean you can as long as you don’t melee anything.
As for the Hunters Mask of the Third Man, this is a Bladedancers helmet. If you are not a Bladedancer don’t even bother with this. It’s main perk is Unstable Current which grants less super consumption when using Arc Blade. Bladedancers are best in pvp, pve it’s kinda tricky because you can’t really do much expect clear out small groups of ads. The only time I really ever use Bladedancer in pve is for invisibility solely for rez purposes.
For the Warlocks the Skull of Dire Ahamkara is a voidwalker’s helmet. It grants you reduced damage while using Nova Bomb and improved Siphon abilities. I personally don’t use a Warlock that often so I can’t speak how beneficial this really is. But I do know that Nova Bombs are still very relevant in both pvp and pve. So this helmet, unless you have a better exotic somewhere else could be useful if you plan to drop bombs everywhere.
