Void Warlock Playstyle

After casting your rift the Child of the Old Gods will appear and be ready to serve you and your allies. Child of the old gods will go to where you shoot at an enemy and create an area where everything becomes debuffed and tether damage to each other. If you stand in a Healing Rift you will get your abilities back with a buff called Void Soul Vampirism so long as you are killing enemies. If standing in an Empowering Rift you will gain health back.  Make sure to use healing rift due to the fact that you have Devour in the build which heals you.


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.

Nova Bomb: Vortex

Healing Rift

Burst Glide

Suppressor Grenade

Pocket Singularity

Nova Bomb: Vortex – Hurl an explosive bolt of Void Light at a target, disintegrating those caught within its blast. Nova Bomb creates a singularity that pulls targets inward and continually damages those trapped inside. All super ability kills activate and extend devour. FLEX: NOVA BOMB: CATACLYSM -Nova Bomb travels slowly and seeks enemies. Detonations shatter into smaller seeker projectiles. Fire your weapon at the Nova Bomb to detonate it early. Be carefull when you use this for damage phase your allies cannot shoot through the nova bomb. FLEX 2: NOVA WARP – Step between dimensions to subvert the laws of psychics. Press sprint binding to teleport a short distance. Hold and release to unleash a deadly void eruption. Not good for boss damage but if the fight requires mob clear than use this.

Healing Rift – Conjure a well of power that continuously heals those inside it. This will help you and your allies survive as it heals.

Burst Glide – Jump while airborne to activate Glide and start an airborne drift with a strong initial boost of speed. FLEX: Strafe Glide. Jump while airborne to activate glide and start an airborne drift with strong directional control.

Suppressor Grenade – An explosive grenade that suppresses, preventing targets from using abilities for a short time. This grenade will also stun Overload Champions.

Pocket Singularity – Launch an unstable ball of Void energy that detonates when it nears a target, pushing them away from the blast and making them volatile.


Child of the Old Gods

Feed the Void

Child of the Old Gods – Cast your rift to create a Void Soul. When you damage a target with a weapon, your Void Soul flies to them and drains them, doing damage and weakening them. When a target is being drained, you are granted grenade and melee energy (if running healing rift) or health (if running empowering rift). Defeating a target who is being drained by your Void Soul grants class ability energy. Warlock main class ability is rift that will have a low cooldown so long as you are running high recovery stat.

Feed the Void – Defeat a target with a Void ability to activate Devour. While Devour is active, final blows restore health and extend Devour. This works with all your void abilities.


Echo of Persistence

Echo of Vigilance

Echo of Instability

Echo of Expulsion

Echo of Persistence : Void buffs applied to you (Invisibility, Overshield, and Devour) have increased duration.

Echo of Vigilance : Defeating a target while your shields are depleted grants you a temporary Void overshield.

Echo of Instability : Defeating targets with grenades grants Volatile Rounds to your Void weapons. The Artifact gives us volatile rounds when we get an orb of power so Flex this for Echo of Reprisal.

Echo of Expulsion : Void ability final blows cause targets to explode.
