Destiny 2 Stasis Titan Solo Build
Welcome to the Destiny 2 Stasis Titan Solo Build! While most builds in today’s meta for PvE are all ability based with a smaller emphasis on weapons, solo PvE stasis builds allows us to use our abilities to directly buff our weapon damage. Using certain mods and stasis shards, we can put out some crazy damage numbers with our stasis weapons, creating a build that can be used in almost all content.
Last Updated March 2, 2023, for Lightfall Expansion and Season 20, Season of Defiance. Destiny 2 has gone through a major change with their modding system. Making mods much easier and simpler to understand but taking some of the old metas and either eliminating them or making them relevantly the same. For instance, the “well” mods most players have been accustomed to have been completely eliminated and really the only system and combination are based of orbs of power. The mod loadout you see today will change over time as we become accustomed to new and shifting meta in Destiny 2 Lightfall. This loadout has been tested and works, so check back frequently as we will be updating these builds throughout the season and expansion.
Should you play Stasis Titan Solo?
Stasis Titan has a few essential strengths and a unique playstyle, making it incredibly fun to play. If following “Pros” is what you’re looking for, this is the build for you!
|Highest weapon damage output of any build.||Is dependent on using Stasis weapons|
|Can be used in almost all content||Very mod dependent, it will not function without the correct mods.|
|Stasis allows for a lot of map control||Some weapons that make this build shine are no longer available.|
What is the Best Titan Build?
Stasis Titan builds in Destiny 2 center on controlling the battlefield with crystals, freezing and slowing enemies. Think massive area damage with high damage and great survivability. Lightfall Expansion also introduced a new exciting exotic that can be used opening even more build possibilities. You wan’t to play a Stasis Titan if you’re looking for huge AoE ad control and damage.
Solo Stasis Titan Build Playstyle
The builds playstyle is simple overall. Create stasis crystals, break them, collect shards, destroy everything around you with Stasis weapons. This has the potential to give you the most DPS in the game if you have a god role Reed’s Regret, and even if you don’t still can give you monster damage.
Abilities, aspects and fragments need to be unlocked before use. Once you’ve finished the Beyond Light campaign, the Exo Stranger will offer you a new quest called Born in Darkness. The quest has 4 parts in it that you are going to have to complete to unlock and use 100% of your stasis subclass. Bring Monte Carlo if you have it as some parts require stasis melee final blows and Monte Carlo charges your melee quickly.
Stasis Buffs & Debuffs
Additionally, below we listed the important buffs and debuffs for the Stasis build to help you better understand this playstyle.
- Stasis Crystal (Buff) – A crystal of solidified Stasis matter. Upon creation, freezes nearby combatants and slows nearby players. Crystals can be destroyed, dealing damage in an area.
- Stasis Shard (Buff) – A small shard of Stasis matter that can be collected to restore melee energy.
- Slow (Debuff) – The target has slowed movement, slowed ability regeneration, and reduced weapon performance. Slowed combatants have difficulty firing accurately. After accumulating enough Slow stacks, the target is frozen.
- Freeze (Debuff) – The target is trapped in Stasis matter and is unable to move. After taking additional damage while frozen, the target shatters.
- Shatter (Debuff) – When a frozen target is shattered, they take damage and deal damage in an area around them.
Howl of the Storm
Whisper of Chains
Whisper of Conduction
Whisper of Rime
Whisper of Fissures
PvE is always a situational piece in Destiny. What content you are doing always has a significant effect on your loadout. I will list some great options that work in most situations but note that you will most likely have to change things out. This build encourages you to use stasis weapons over anything else to get that sweet damage buff though.
If you have a special weapon here, run a primary in your energy slot or vice versa. You can also run primary weapons in both slots, but double special weapons are typically not the best play except in very certain situations. Remember that these are suggestions and you will definitely have to switch weapons out.
|Recommended Kinetic Weapons||Suggested Perk 1||Suggested Perk 2|
Break the Bank
|Recommended Energy Weapons||Suggested Perk 1||Suggested Perk 2|
|Recommended Heavy Weapons||Suggested Perk 1||Suggested Perk 2|
Fire and Forget
|Exotic Armor||Exotic Perk|
Heart of Inmost Light
Sect of Force
Armor StatsHere is the priority of where we want our highest stats for this build. Pump up your resilience and then try to spread everything else out fairly evenly with spikes here and there. In order of importance:
- Resilience - Resilience is king is PvE. It has exponential returns and it pays to put as much as you can into it. The difference between 90 and 100 is 8 percent damage mitigation. That's huge!
- Recovery - Survival is the most important thing in PvE. The higher your recovery the faster you get back into the fight.
- Discipline - We are going to want more discipline and strength for this build as we aren’t depending on Heart of Inmost Light to buff our abilities.
- Strength - Strength is less important than discipline as our stasis shards, which we are constantly generating, give us melee energy back anyway. A nice positive feedback loop with Howl of the Storm.
- Intellect - We won’t be using our super too often but for those moments when there are lots of ads it still comes in handy.
- Mobility - As a Titan, we don’t need a lot of Mobility. It will help with jumping puzzles but that’s really it.
- Mobility - <50 (higher is fine if you’ve hit other markers)
- Resilience - 100
- Recovery - ~60
- Discipline - ~80
- Intellect - ~60
- Strength - ~60
Armor Modification Change: these mods will seem foreign to returning players with Lightfall changing the entire system. The system you build around now is only orbs of power. You also see an armor charge mechanic and some of the previous mechanics for generating orbs of power and previously used mods. This system is evolving, and we will continue to make changes as we gain a better understanding of the new mod system. Here’s a list of all the current armor mods.
Artifice Armor Change: provides an extra +3 to whatever stat you want this should help you reach these stat goals.
Artifact Change: The artifact no longer provides mods instead it reduces the costs of some of the mods and provides passives as you level up and unlock them. Season 20 Artifact.
