Stasis Warlock PvP Playstyle

Your Rift is key, use it when someone is going to rush you so you can freeze them with your rift. DO NOT SHOOT the ones that you freeze melee them because it is an instant kill. If you feel cornered, throw a glacier grenade near you to create a cover and get extra damage resistance. If you combine this with stag rift you will Have x3 Damage Reduction and will be able to survive a shotgun at point-blank range. You can also challenge enemies at range while sitting in your rift. You will win most 1v1 scenarios and even be able to take on 2 or 3 people so long as you freeze them. Use your super to counter the enemies roaming super you need to freeze them and shatter them two times to secure the kill.


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.
