Best Abilities for Solar Warlock in Destiny 2

In this Warlock build for Destiny 2, we recommend using a combination of Solar Grenade, Phoenix Dive, and Incendiary Snap. These abilities will help you not only deal damage but also heal and scorch during your gameplay sessions. They are your key tools for success in the game, ensuring you’re well-prepared for whatever challenges come your way

In this Destiny 2 build, we carefully select two key aspects to enhance our Warlock’s performance. Let’s delve into these aspects:

  1. Touch of Flame: This aspect makes our Solar grenades even more potent by prolonging their lingering duration and creating small lava blobs that add extra damage. A great choice for boosting your offensive capabilities.
  2. Icarus Dash: This aspect has a minimal effect on the build. In my view, the significant mobility provided by Icarus Dash greatly enhances your survivability, allowing for swifter execution of mechanics and quicker revivals of teammates.

The success of this Dragon Breath Build hinges significantly on the utilization of Fragments.

Maximizing Potential with Solar Fragments: Key Benefits

  1. Ember of Ashes: Boosts the number of Scorch Stacks applied to targets by 50% in most scenarios, enhancing your damage output.
  2. Ember of Eruption: Enhances the area of effect of your Solar ignitions, coupled with an additional +10 Strength stat.
  3. Ember of Char: Ensures that Ignitions, when combined with Ember of Ashes, apply an impactful 60 scroch to enemies caught in the explosion, increasing your destructive capabilities.
  4. Ember of Mercy: Provides a strategic advantage by offering Restoration x1 for 2 seconds through Firesprite pickups, aiding in quick recovery during combat.

Synergies with Exotic Armor – Dragons Breath Build Destiny 2 D2

Dragons Breath excels at scorching targets and triggering widespread ignitions for substantial area damage. When paired with the Dawn Chorus Exotic Helmet, its effectiveness in Destiny 2 skyrockets. The Right of Embers Perk further enhances its prowess, offering a substantial 200% increase in scorch damage per tick, which significantly boosts the likelihood of ignitions.

For Warlock players, my general recommendation is to prioritize maximum Discipline and Resilience. Ideally, aim for 100 Discipline, 100 Resilience, and 100 Recovery, although reaching this level can be challenging.

Having Resilience at Tier 10 provides a substantial 30% damage reduction, a significant advantage in PvE encounters.

Playstyle – Dragons Breath Build Destiny 2 D2

Gameplay Strategy

The core strategy revolves around maximizing the damage potential of Dragons Breath and your solar abilities, which involve scorching and igniting targets.

The gameplay involves charging the Dragon’s Breath rocket launcher up to 5 stacks through ignitions or a brief wait, enabling a powerful shot akin to a massive waveframe grenade launcher. This shot inflicts maximum delayed damage, similar to the Lasting Impression effect. Enemies within the blast radius suffer intense scorch damage, which, in turn, triggers further ignitions via our fragments and exotic helmet, resulting in a colossal area explosion. These ignitions not only replenish the launcher’s ammo but also ensure automatic reloading at 5 stacks.

Importantly, ignitions from Dragon’s Breath, grenades, and melee abilities all contribute to this cycle. Additionally, other solar weapons with the Incandescent perk can activate ignitions that count towards refilling the launcher.

The gameplay elevates with the Dragon’s Breath masterwork, as ignitions then recharge the launcher even faster. Moreover, defeating enemies now drops Firesprites, which, when collected, grant a restoration buff through Ember of Mercy, integrating a healing element into our build.
