Arc Warlock Solo Playstyle

Your main priority when you get in combat is to become Amplified, use your grenade or melee to get an ionic trace and become Amplified. During this time focus on taking care of the red bar enemies; they are the easiest to kill and you can do it better than all the other classes due to your chain melee ability. Cast your rift to call upon an arc soul that allows you and your allies to have a personal mini turret. If you happen to get swarmed by adds use your super it has a great casting aoe attack to give you some breathing room. So long as you maintain your crown of tempest buff all of your abilities will be recharging quicker.


Some abilities, aspects and fragments need to be unlocked before use. In order to do that, Destiny 2 players need to visit Ikora in the Tower and do the related quest or purchase them from her. Lastly, if you bought new aspects and fragments don’t forget to “meditate”. Simply click the “meditate” option on the table next to Ikora.


Healing Rift

Burst Glide

Pulse Grenade

Chain Lightning

Stormtrance – Chain Arc Lightning from your hands to electrify targets with devastating streams of Arc Light that intensify over time. Casting Stormtrance creates a jolting shockwave underneath you. [Sprint] : Teleport forward, consuming a small amount of Super energy. Please be careful in high level content as enemies hit harder and will kill you if you are not careful. Flex CHAOS REACH Unleash a long-range channeled beam of concentrated Arc super again to deactivate your Super early, saving Super energy.

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

Burst Glide – Our main movement ability. This is the faster option if you want more control with your flight flex to strafe glide.

Pulse Grenade – A grenade that periodically damages targets within its explosion radius. Flex: STORM GRENADE: A grenade that calls down a focused lightning storm.

Chain Lightning – An extended range melee that jolts your target and chains lightning to nearby targets. While amplified, it creates an additional set of chains. Flex: BALL LIGHTNING: Fire an Arc projectile forward that releases a perpendicular lightning strike after a short time. While Amplified, Ball Lightning releases additional lightning strikes before detonating.


Electrostatic Mind

Arc Soul

Electrostatic Mind – Defeating targets with Arc abilities or defeating jolted or blinded targets creates an Ionic Trace. Collecting an Ionic Trace makes you amplified.
