Warlock Class Ability

The Warlock class in Destiny 2 has two class-specific abilities that you have to choose between. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Healing Rift

Conjure a well of power that continuously heals those inside it.

Healing Rift Warlock Destiny 2 D2

The warlock ability healing rift is incredibly useful. As soon as you fight somewhere stationary for a bit, you have healing all the time. I recommend all warlocks to always stay on healing rift except for a few special exceptions.

Empowering Rift

Conjure a well of power that increases weapon damage for those inside it.
