Information on items, perks, weapons, etc. I wanted to put all in one place. So I wrote this for myself.
:::Warlocks are known scribes for keeping such information. That which you will need:::

There’s some I left out in the scopes, barrels, and mags, although they’re not too notable here.
Also, Masterworks are pretty self evident. Just try not to reduce charge time unless you need to.

Concerning Armor; Mods & Stats

In the game there are six character stats. These are granted by armor stats.

    Speed – Armor – HP Regen – Grenade – Super – Melee

They have different names in game, idc you’ll get it. Hunt for the stats you but keep in mind that anything for stat totals 59 and below just dismantle it. 60 and above is decent while slowing pulling together a collection of pieces 65 and above with good stat distributions. Its not as complicated as it looks, you’ll usually get these type of pieces from prime engrams and more notably endgame content. Again though the stats you need come first before totals.

Different Classes get different benefits from either of the first 3. They also help against stasis.
Moving on to mods. Im not going to talk about the whole system only whats important.
Charged w/ Light & Warmind Cells. These are extremely beneficial. I reccommend two arc ones that give you increased stats. Ada-1 should sell so go and check her inventory everyday on reset, that or websites like light gg list what vendors have, DIM works too. As far as warmind cells go, the two warmind cell mods that make them proc from solar splash damage and give them increased solar damage are some good ones. A lot of void warmind mods are really good as well. Especially in Season of the Splicer. Which is right now. You can get a Void version of solar splash damage mod so you have more chances to spawn them between loadouts. The rest is pretty straight forward. As you get more mods you’ll see more options open up.

My stuff :::;: various builds and such::::

Some of my favorite looks are getting old Destiny looks. Where things look like they seen weathering, Dark Age type stuff. One of the planetary ghost shells w/ cinderchar is a good look. A nice classic look. Im excited to see older designs coming back while getting new ones.

Graviton Lance builds are one my favorite fun builds and it works pretty well too for grinding out mobs. Splicer has a Void Warmind mod like the solar Wrath one we’ve always had. So it just keeps getting stronger. Tacking on Skull or Nezarec’s completes most of the bulk. It only keeps getting sweeter w/ mods that either enhance your abilites charge rate or your int. Blinking around with Astrocyte Verse it fun too. It takes practice to master but once you get it theres nothing else like blink. Dawn skipping is a good plan B if your still practicing.

A max INT Titan with Hammers and either Phoenix Cradle or the anti-freeze exotic with full warmind cell mods is a fun time. The new well mods have really helped w/ that.

A gunner warlock build is where someone grabs chaos reach, Getaway Artist, and No Time to Explain. Along with fitting mods. Proc the timegate and arc soul and have a fun time shredding everything.

General Healers are possible too with Warlock sporting Starfire Protocol with fusion grenades and fireteam medic warmind cells. Titan support has always been there with bubble but they also have the Crest of Alpha Lupi and access to the same fireteam medic mods. Hunters afaik I haven’t looked into. They are my least played class but I’ll agree Golden Gun is a lot of fun.

Hunters can run support with Omni as it gives damage reduction. Melee build, plain and simple.
Although most hunters are probably look for max dps with Stareater Scales. Its still good even thought it was nerfed. I’d use the word tuned.

GO max INT middle tree arcstrider with Raiju’s Harness. You can reflect everything but Chaos Reach. You’ll literally be turning the last good thing stasis hunters have against them. So sad.
I forgot to mention you can cancel your super with the exotic so you save energy and always be ready to only use it to reflect enemy supers, have fun.

I will be adding more information on weapon builds here in this section later.
