Best Solar 3.0 Build for Titans in Destiny 2

Time to burn it all down.

Destiny 2 has turned up the heat with the Solar 3.0 rework. While each class has gained significant robustness, Titans, in particular, have embraced the rework with marvelous results.

What is the best Solar build for Titans?

Solar Abilities

  • Hammer of Sol: Summon a flaming hammer and wreak destruction down upon your foes. Upon impact, your hammers shatter into explosive molten shards.
  • Rally Barricade: Create a small barrier that you can peek over while aiming down sights and that increases weapon reload speed, stability, and range when you stand behind it.
  • Throwing Hammer: Throw a hammer from a distance. Picking up a thrown hammer fully recharges your melee ability. If the hammer struck a target, picking it up grants cure.
  • Thermite Grenade: A grenade that sends forth a burning line of fire, dealing damage and scorching targets in its path.

Solar Aspects

  • Sol Invictus: Solar ability final blows, Hammer of Sol Impacts, and defeating scorched targets creates Sunspots. Your abilities regenerate faster, and your Super drains more slowly while standing in a Sunspot. Sunspots apply scorch and deal damage to targets inside. Entering a Sunspot applies restoration.
  • Roaring Flames: Final Blows with Solar abilities or ignitions increase the damage of your solar abilities.

Solar Fragments

  • Ember of Combustion: Final blows with your Solar Super cause targets to ignite.
  • Ember of Ashes: You apply more scorch stacks to targets.
  • Ember of Eruption: Your Solar ignitions have increased area of effect.
  • Ember of Char: Your Solar ignitions spread scorch to affected targets.

Weapons, Armor, and Mods

  • Ace of Spades: Precision kills with this weapon increase reload speed and cause the target to explode, dealing Solar damage to nearby enemies.
  • Sunshot: Targets killed with sunshot explode in Solar Energy.
  • Prismatic Inferno: Fires a Solar trace beam that creates a field of heat energy that grows as the weapon is fired. Sustained damage applies scorch to the target.
  • Loreley Splendor Helm: When you are critically wounded with full class ability energy or when you cast a Barricade, create a Sunspot at your location that has improved restoration effects.
  • Hallowfire Heart: Improves the recharge rate of your Solar abilities. Greatly improves recharge rate while your super is charged.
  • Mods
    • Overload Trace Rifles: Uninterrupted fire from your equipped Trace Rifles causes the beam to stun combatants, delaying ability energy regeneration and lowering combatant damage output. Strong against Overload Champions.
    • Revitalizing Blast: Stunning a Champion causes it to ignite and clears your shield stun.
    • Withering Heat: Causing damage with a Solar ability weakens Champions for a short duration.
    • Classy Restoration: Activating your Solar class abilities grants you restoration.Solar Fulmination: Your ignitions do increased damage in an increased radius.
