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 recover 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

Aspect Choices

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. Heat Rises: The second aspect is Heat Rises, and it’s essential for keeping your gameplay loop in motion. By holding down the grenade button, you can consume your grenade and receive the Heat Rises buff. This buff speeds up the regeneration of your melee ability when you’re airborne and getting kills. Additionally, activating your Phoenix Dive now grants you the powerful Restoration buff instead of just Cure, greatly enhancing your survivability and recovery.

These aspect choices are key to optimizing your Warlock’s abilities for success in Destiny 2

Fragments play a pivotal role in this build’s effectiveness.

  1. Echo of Undermining: Given the wide area coverage of our enhanced grenade, this fragment is a must. It ensures that all enemies struck by the grenade suffer amplified damage.
  2. Echo of Remnants: This fragment is used to extend the duration of our empowered grenade, making it last even longer.
  3. Echo of Persistence: To enhance our survivability, particularly in challenging scenarios where enemies are tougher to defeat, we utilize Echo of Persistence. This extends the duration of Devour from 10 to 15 seconds, providing extra security on the battlefield.

Synergies with Exotic Armor – Warlock Solar Build Destiny 2 D2

Sunbracers are an exceptional exotic gear choice for this Solar Warlock build in Destiny 2, greatly amplifying the effectiveness of Solar Grenades.

With Sunbracers equipped, Solar Grenades gain the Fastball perk intrinsically, enhancing the grenade’s throw speed and extending their reach.

Moreover, the duration of Solar Grenades is increased from the usual 4 seconds to 8 seconds. This extension ensures that the battlefield remains ablaze for longer periods, hindering enemy movements and continuously dealing damage. When combined with the Warlock’s ‘Touch of Flame’ aspect, the duration is boosted even further to 10 seconds, maximizing area denial and crowd control capabilities.

The power of Sunbracers shines brightest following a powered melee kill, which triggers the ‘Sunbracers Ready’ state for a brief 5-second window. Casting a Solar Grenade while ‘Sunbracers Ready’ is active grants the Sunbracers buff, which escalates the Solar Grenade regeneration rate by 20,000% for 5 seconds. This incredible regeneration rate translates to approximately 132% of a Solar Grenade’s charge replenishing every second, effectively allowing for back-to-back grenade deployment.

By extending grenade duration, enhancing throw accuracy, and providing an unrivaled grenade regeneration rate, Sunbracers are pivotal to maximizing the destructive potential of this Solar Warlock build.

Mods and Stats – Warlock Solar Build Destiny 2 D2


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.

The Core Strategy of this Destiny 2 Warlock Build

The central strategy of this Destiny 2 Warlock Build is to maximize the use of Solar abilities and perks. To achieve this, follow these steps:

  1. Consume your initial grenade to activate Heat Rises.
  2. Eliminate small or medium foes with the Snap melee ability to trigger Sunbracer’s exotic perk.
  3. Utilize Solar grenades for 5 seconds to deal substantial area damage over time.
  4. Stay airborne to expedite the Snap ability cooldown through the Heat Rises aspect.
  5. Employ your class ability while Heat Rises is active to acquire the Restoration buff and heal yourself.
  6. Continue accumulating Solar kills to extend the duration of Restoration and Heat Rises, effectively granting near-endless access to these bonuses.

This strategy empowers you with a potent and sustainable Solar-based gameplay experience in Destiny 2.
