Destiny 2: All Warlock Prismatic Subclass Abilities

Learn all Warlock Prismatic Subclass Abilities, Fragments, Grenade, Super, and Aspects in the Destiny 2 Final Shape.

Destiny 2 - Warlock Prismatic Subclass Skills and Abilities

Prismatic is a new Subclass coming to Destiny 2 with the Final Shape expansion on 4th July 2024. It’s unique and something we have never seen before in D2, but it nicely ties the Light and Dark forces in the game. Prismatic will allow players to “combine certain class abilities for different damage types.”

“The Prismatic Warlock brings an army to bear, summoning a horde of Bleak Watchers, Hellions, and Threadlings in the blink of an eye. Their starting build lets them lock down entire rooms with Bleak Watcher and Penumbral Blast, and their ability damage (including damage caused by shattering the frozen targets) kickstarts Feed the Void, granting grenade energy to start the cycle anew.” – Prismatic Warlock Subclass and Abilities Description in Destiny 2.

Prismatic Subclass Overview

Dual Abilities:

  • The Prismatic subclass allows you to wield abilities from both Light and Darkness. Your Super, melee, grenade, and Aspect slots can be filled with a mix of abilities from all five damage types: Arc, Solar, Void, Stasis, and Strand.

Movement and Class Abilities:

  • You can access all available movement modes and class abilities, including subclass-specific ones such as Phoenix Dive, Acrobat’s Dodge, and Thruster. This flexibility supports various build-crafting possibilities.

Buildcrafting and New Interactions:

  • The Prismatic subclass aims to enable unique build combinations, making underused abilities more relevant by creating new interchanges. Some aspects were adjusted before the release of the Final Shape to enhance these unique combinations, keeping the gameplay fresh and engaging.

Prismatic Transcendence

How Prismatic Subclass Transcendence Works in Destiny 2

Light and Dark Meters:

  • Beneath your Super bar, you’ll see two meters: one for Light and one for Dark. As you deal damage with Light abilities, the Light meter fills up. Similarly, the Dark meter fills up when you use Dark abilities.

Achieving Transcendence:

  • When both the Light and Dark meters are completely filled, you reach a heightened state of power called “Transcendence.” This state grants you enhanced abilities and boosts your performance, providing significant advantages in combat.

Starting Builds and Prismatic Subclass Progression

Initial Access:

  • From the very first mission of The Final Shape, you will have access to a complete Prismatic build. This build includes a set of Light and Darkness abilities, Aspects, and a full set of Fragments.

Expanding Capabilities:

  • As you progress through The Final Shape, you’ll unlock additional abilities and customization options, allowing you to further refine and enhance your Prismatic build.
