Best Warlock Armor in Destiny 2

By: Ryan Cox | September 7th, 2017

Destiny is now available to play worldwide! You’re likely busy fighting back Ghaul and the Red Legion, but for those of you treasure collectors, you’re likely wondering what gear you should begin to set your eyes on. Let’s start with everyone’s favorite space wizards—the Warlock! Here are our picks for the best Warlock armor in Destiny 2.


In Bungie’s new sequel, the best armor that you should be looking for is of Exotic rarity. Let’s take a look at some of the best Warlock exotics in Destiny 2!

Nezarec’s Sin

Nezarec’s Sin can be utilized in a myriad of ways, but is best paired with the Warlock Voidwalker subclass. The Exotic trait, Abyssal Extractors, grants increased ability recharge rates when you get a kill with Void damage. This can be a void weapon, grenade, or even your melee or super abilities. For example, with Attunement of Chaos active, a Void melee kill will recharge nearly two thirds of your grenade’s charge.

Exotic Trait: Void-damage kills increase ability recharge rate.

How to Obtain: Exotic Engrams


Eye of Another World

Similarly to Nezarec’s Sin, Eye of Another World is also an Exotic Helmet focused around gaining ability energy. Not only will its trait highlight “priority targets”, but it will also globally reduce all of your ability cooldowns other than your Super. This is an excellent helmet regardless of which subclass you choose to play with.

Exotic Trait: Highlights priority targets and improves the regeneration speed of your Grenade, Melee, and Rift abilities.

How to Obtain: Select as a reward from Commander Sloane during the Red War campaign, or loot from Exotic Engrams.


Wings of Sacred Dawn

The Exotic Chest Wings of Sacred Dawn become available to the player very early in the Red War campaign. You’ll have the choice between Sunbracers, Wings of Sacred Dawn, and Eye of Another World. If you’re planning on playing a lot of the new Dawnblade subclass, then Tome of Dawn will give you plenty of helpful aerial mobility.

Exotic Trait: When Dawnblade is equipped, aiming weapons while in midair suspends you there for a short time. Precision hits extend this effect’s duration

How to Obtain: Select as a reward from Commander Sloane during the Red War campaign, or receive from Exotic Engrams.
