Best Titan Stasis PvE Build

Hoarfrost-Z Titan Exotic featured Destiny 2

Ice Fortress

Excels In: Endgame (Dungeons, Raids, Legend content)

Goal of the Build: In a similar fashion to a Heart of Inmost Light build, this build utilizes the Hoarfrost-Z exotic to cover an area in stasis crystals and maintain high ability uptime.

Mandatory gear: Hoarfrost-Z. Salvation’s Grip or Verglas Curve are recommended for their nearly on-demand crystal generation.

  • Aspects: Tectonic Harvest and Howl of the Storm.
  • Fragments: Whisper of Shards and Whisper of Conduction. The rest is up to you.
  • Abilities: Rally barricade and Glacier grenades.
  • Stats: Resilience 🡒 Discipline.
  • Mods: Mods that reduce the cooldown for abilities are best suited for this build. Grenade Kickstart and Utility Kickstart/Bomber are some examples. This build can also incorporate an Orbs of Power build by using Heavy Handed or Firepower mod to create Orbs of Power.
    • Helmet: Harmonic Siphon, Heavy Ammo Finder.
    • Arms: Grenade Kickstart, Firepower .
    • Chest: Resistance Mods based on your enemies.
    • Legs: x2 Elemental Charge.
    • Class Item: Utility Kickstart, Bomber.

Gameplay Loop

This build can fill entire areas with stasis crystals and use them to deal high shatter damage to close-by enemies.

The Hoarfrost-Z exotic perk, “Glacial Fortification,” takes the normal Titan barricade and replaces it with a wall of stasis crystal. This special wall can be shattered like a normal stasis crystal. This means it can be used to create another source of stasis crystals.

The gameplay loop is simple: Use both the Hoarfrost-Z and the glacier grenade to create a mass of stasis crystals. Standing next to these crystals will provide more damage resistance. Shattering a crystal will provide you with enhanced ability regeneration and a small portion of an overshield. The shards created can then also be used with the Elemental Charge mod to act as an easy source of Armor Charges. A quick and easy way to shatter lots of crystals is to use a wave frame grenade launcher.

Best Titan PvP builds

PvP Essentials

PvP is a different ball game when it comes to gearing up and taking your Titan to the max level. Unlike PvE, most gameplay mods such as Elemental Wells and Warmind Cells are disabled in PvP. Those slots are then freed up for more PvP-orientated mods such as Targeting or Unflinching mods.

One thing that does carry over between the game modes is the importance of certain stats. Recovery replaces Resilience as the most important stat. You should always aim to get 100 Recovery or as close as possible. Recovery dictates the speed at which you can engage in fights and can be the difference between a loss and a win.

Due to the current sandbox that focuses on abilities, your next port of call should be to increase your Discipline, Strength, and Resilience as high as possible. Whilst Resilience doesn’t give a damage reduction like in PvE, the increased health can allow you to survive certain weapons and combos. It also grants you a faster barricade, which is always helpful.

Titan Subclasses: Ranked

Titan is actually in a pretty good spot when it comes to the strength of its subclasses in PvP.

The strengths of the Stasis Titan are similar in PvE and PvP: Area denial and control. While it may be weaker than the other subclasses in terms of killing potential, the utility of Stasis can sometimes be a good choice. The aspects and fragments that are usually chosen in PvE also work well inside the crucible. Whisper of Chains is a great choice, as the extra resistance it provides can affect the optimal TTK of certain weapons used by your opponents.

Glacier grenades and Howl of the Storm are great choices to help gain map control too. The crystals not only serve as a source of ability regeneration and resistance but can also be used to block sight lines or cut down longer lanes. These can also be used to help close the gap or provide some respite from your opponents.

There are loads of viable exotics for Titans to use inside the Crucible.

Dunemarchers are a good example of an exotic that has stood the test of time. The added mobility they provide as well as the extra lightning chain upon punching an opponent makes them extremely strong for all subclasses. Titans have struggled to keep up with the other classes, and Dunemarchers help to close that gap.

The infamous One-Eyed Mask is still a solid choice inside PVP. While is nowhere near as strong as it once was, it still is a competitive option for all subclasses. Its exotic perk “Vengeance” grants you an over-shield for defeating an opposing guardian. This gives you an advantage when it comes to the next fight due to the health increase.

Synthoceps are another strong exotic that work with any titan subclass. The extra melee range can catch opposing guardians off guard and pair well with a close-range weapon such as a shotgun or SMG.
