Swarmers Prismatic Warlock build Destiny 2 The Final Shape

Destiny 2 The Final Shape has landed with a new Prismatic subclass that combines the abilities of Light and Darkness. This opens the way for powerful new builds to deal with the most challenging content. See here a Prismatic Warlock build with the Swarmers to improve the Strand debuffs and also take advantage of Amplified, at the same time you gain the Transcendence energy back in no time.

This Warlock build is focused on spreading the unravel debuff to the most targets. This is accomplished with the big help of Swarmers legs that make opponents affected by Unravel launch Threadlings when suffer damage, and Threadlings will cause Unravel. Thanks to the Facet of Devotion you get Light and Darkness energy for your Transcendence at the same time if you use a Strand weapon to kill Unravel targets. With the Facet of Honor, you get more Transcendence by destroying the Tangles.

For survivability the Devour it’s essential, simply activated by killing enemies with abilities. You also take advantage of the Galvanic Armor mod from the artifact that gives you 30% damage resistance when Amplified, for that, you simply get multikills with an arc weapon or with the Lightning Surge.

Recommended Gear: Swarmers

The Swarmers are the choice for this Prismatic Warlock build in Destiny 2. Equipping them will cause Strand Tangles to generate Threadlings, which will inflict Unravel on targets. Opponents affected by Unravel launch Threadlings when damaged, and generate a Tangle upon death.

To become amplified you should use an arc weapon of your preference to do multikills. On the other slot, you should equip a Strand or Stasis weapon.
