Destiny 2 The Ultimate Support Warlock Guide
This guide will show you how to build the Ultimate Support Warlock for dungeons and raids. For this build we will be using the Dawnblade subclass and will focus on getting your Well of Radiance super and Healing Grenades back asap. Your teammates will love having you on the fireteam.
Throw to instantly heal yourself and your team as well as putting on the Restoration buff which heals over time. You are going to be using this a lot.
Another heal to help your team around you, use this while your heal grenade is on CD
Best jump to move around quicker
A useful mid-long range melee skill that does decent damage and lights enemies on fire for damage over time
Your ultimate ability. Puts down a large area heal and damage buff for your team, you will basically be invincible while inside. Use this so your fireteam can stand in while it’s a boss damage phase.
This will give your healing grenades the Restoration x2 buff for more healing done
This will give you an extremely useful dash move while in the air so you can move around faster and get to cover quicker
This fragment will make it so every time you use your charged melee ability and hit an enemy, it will give you and your fireteam a damage buff
Increased duration for your heals and damage buff
Healing and buffing your team lowers your cooldowns so you can heal and buff more often
This fragment makes it so every time u kill an enemy with a Solar weapon or ability, it adds time to your Restoration x2 and Radiant buffs
This is what you are going to want your stats to look like. Aim for 100 Resilience first to get the full damage reduction, and then go for 100 Discipline after so you can reduce the CD of your healing grenade even more.
Phoenix Protocol is the exotic we are going to be wearing for this build. Getting kills and assists while standing inside your Well of Radiance gives super energy back. A lot back. This exotic will allow you to use your ultimate over and over again during a boss fight.
For mods you want to use ones that reduce grenade and super cool downs so you can spam your heals and ultimate even more
You are gonna want to mostly use Solar weapons with this build so you can proc your Ember of Empyrean fragment as much as possible which extends your Restoration x2 and Radiant buffs with Solar kills.
Calus Mini-Tool, BXR-55 Battler, Explosive Personality, Retraced Path are all great choices.
Witherhoard is an amazing kinetic special Exotic that goes very well with a primary like Calus Mini-Tool.
Divinity is very good support special Exotic that allows your team to do more damage as you use this weapon on an enemy to create a huge crit point.
Gjallarhorn is a Solar heavy Exotic that buffs your team’s rocket damage, very useful if your fireteam are all using Hothead or Bump in the Night so you can buff their damage with the Gjally.
To summarize this build in a few sentences, you are going to want to start by using your Celestial Fire on an enemy to grant Radiant to you and your fireteam for the damage buff. Drop a Healing Grenade by you and your team while you continue to kill enemies with your Solar weapons to continuously add more and more time to both Restoration x2 and Radiant buffs thanks to the Ember of Empyrean fragment. This will make it so you and your fireteam are continuously getting healed as well at constantly having a damage buff as long as you keep killing enemies with Solar weapons or abilities.
Use your Healing Rift while your healing grenade is on cooldown to shorten the cooldown of your grenade with the help of Bomber mods if you have it equipped on your class armor. When your super is ready and its time for the Boss damage phase, drop it in a good position so your whole team is standing in it and you guys have a clear line of sight to the boss. After your super is finished, you should almost be if not already be ready to drop it again thanks to Phoenix Protocol. Rinse and repeat until boss is dead. Your fireteam will love you for the constant heals, damage buffs, and quick supers.
Hope this guide helps out some fellow Guardians.
