All the Exotics in Dauntless and how to get them

dauntless-artwork-embermane.jpg?itok=-Zx

Having unique items in MMO’s is important and the Dauntless exotics are pretty great.

Tired of looking like everyone else in Ramsgate? You too can look unique with these powerful new Exotics in the world of Dauntless! That’s my salesman pitch for Exotics and why you might want them. Exotic armor and weapons have a few main reasons to exist; Power level, special abilities, and a unique look are the main three, but they are never easy to get.

How do you get Exotics?

There is no simple way to get Exotics in Dauntless. Each one requires you to not only be good at the game — Exotics are endgame content so don’t go looking for them if you are low level — but you also need to pray to the Gods of Random Number Generators (RNG).

RNG is essentially a randomizer that determines what loot your Behemoth will drop. To start building an Exotic you have to get a certain Behemoth to drop a blueprint for that Exotic. Blueprints are Incredibly rare so you can expect to grind and grind before you get them. Once you have an exotic blueprint you can start to accumulate the ingredients needed to build your awesome new power weapon.

What are the exotics in the game?

There is currently a small list of Exotics but the list is getting bigger. Right now there are three Exotic weapons and three Exotic armor pieces, all helms. We have a list here of each Exotics stats and what you need to get them.

Exotic Armor is all about keeping you safe from specific types of damage while giving you a unique power to really help you stand out in a crowd. Be careful though, like all armor, the Exotics have a weakness too, so choose wisely when fighting different Behemoths.

Conclusion

In any game, Exotics are the thing to hunt for at the Endgame. It’s frustrating that there is no way to purposefully get an Exotic in Dauntless — some Destiny 2 style Exotic missions would be fun — and relying on RNG is maddening at times, but when you finally get one, it all feels worth it.

The Exotics in Dauntless are a lot of fun as they have an extra special ability that really sets them apart. It’s not just a more powerful sword, for example, it’s a powerful sword that also heals you when it deals damage. That kind of thing elevates these weapons, making them all the more effective and fun to use.
