Solar Warlock PvP Playstyle

The way Solar Warlock works is that you need to take advantage of your air abilities. Solar Warlock Outclasses every class when it comes to air accuracy or airborne effectiveness. This takes practice to get really good with it but trust me it rewards you very well. Consume your solar grenade To activate Heat rises and take to the skies. While Heat rises is active, try to surprise your enemies from angles that they would not expect. Learn the lanes of the maps and the angles that other classes cannot get to so that you can use that to your advantage. If you are under fire Use Icarus Dash to get out of enemy fire.


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.
