Destiny 2: Beyond Light - Every Fragment, Ranked From Worst To Best

Subclass customization has finally returned to the Destiny franchise with the Beyond Light expansion. Instead of using a node-based skill grid as the original game did, Bungie introduced two new items named Aspects and Fragments that provide passive and active effects.

Fragments are where Stasis goes from a solid Subclass to a top-tier pick. These passive bonuses range from granting stronger Stasis detonations to increased weapon stats after freezing a target. Since you can only obtain two a week from the Exo Stranger, picking the best Fragments for your build is a massive timesaver. For those looking for the best Fragments, here are all of Destiny 2's Stasis Fragments ranked from worst to best.

Updated September 25th, 2021 by Charles Burgar: Season of the Lost has shifted the Destiny 2 meta once again. New Artifact mods, Exotics, and Stasis armor mods have opened up some interesting Stasis builds for PvE and PvP. Some of these additions have shifted the value of certain Stasis Fragments, requiring us to update this list. We've updated this tier list to reflect balance changes, recent additions, and general meta builds that surround each Stasis subclass.

14 Whisper Of Refraction

Whisper of Refraction: Defeating slowed or frozen targets grants you class ability energy.

Any slowed or frozen targets you defeat while this Fragment is equipped will recharge around 10% of your class ability. This Fragment has no internal cooldown and gives even more energy if the target is a major, proving up to 50% energy if you kill a slowed boss. Some Stasis builds that revolve around class abilities can benefit from this Fragment, yet its effects pale in comparison to your other options.

This Fragment can prove to be a solid choice for Crucible players. Dodges, Barricades, and Rifts with the Frostpulse Aspect are incredibly strong when utilized properly. Unfortunately, Icefall Mantle and Mask of Bakris disable this Fragment while your class ability cannot regenerate, significantly reducing the effectiveness of Whisper of Refraction for certain builds where you'd want to spam your class ability.

Whisper of Refraction also saw an indirect nerf in Season of the Lost. Utility Kickstart, a Stasis class item mod, effectively does the same thing. Using your class ability will refund up to 30% class ability energy. Unlike Refraction, that mod works with Mask of Bakris and Icefall Mantle, reducing this Fragment's value even more. If you want 100% uptime on The Dragon Shadow or throw out more Frostpulse Rifts, x2 Utility Kickstart is all you really need. Only use Whisper of Refraction if your build demands constant class ability usage.

13 Whisper of Fractures

Whisper of Fractures: Your melee energy recharges faster while you are near two or more combatants. -10 Discipline.

Whisper of Fractures sounds fantastic on paper, but it fails to provide any meaningful melee energy returns in practice. This Fragment recharges your melee ability by 2.5% per second while two enemies are near you. If more enemies surround you, this effect becomes stronger. It seems to cap out at 10% melee energy per second while five enemies are near you. Whisper of Fractures works in PvP.

How frequently are five enemies in melee distance from you? Not often enough to get much use out of this effect. Activities that swarm you with enemies require a high kill efficiency or fast movement, hence why Warmind Cells and one-shot weapons like Hand Cannons are so popular. Getting a small melee regeneration boost in those moments isn't worth it when compared to other Fragments. If you really want to make a melee build, run the Heavy Handed Combat Style mod and use the Harvest Aspects.

12 Whisper Of Durance

Whisper of Durance: Slows from your abilities last longer. For those abilities that linger, their duration will also increase. +10 Strength.

Whisper of Durance is a shell of what it once was. This Fragment increases the duration of the slow debuff by 0.5 seconds. Since Revenant is the only subclass that reliably slows enemies, this further reduces the effectiveness of the Fragment.

The main use of Whisper of Durance is to extend the duration of Duskfield Grenades and Silence & Squall's ice tornado. Since Duskfields are lackluster in PvP and Silence & Squall is a Super, this Fragment is only useful for buffing a Revenant Hunter's ability duration. Behemoths and Shadebinders will get little use out of this Fragment.

11 Whisper Of Rending

Whisper of Rending: Kinetic weapons do increased damage to Stasis crystals and frozen targets.

This Fragment is somewhat deceptive, as it only works with Primary weapons. Special Kinetic weapons don't see a damage boost at all. It's the main reason why this otherwise excellent Fragment is rated so poorly on this list.

Whisper of Rending provides around a 43% damage increase to enemies affected by Stasis. For comparison, High-Energy Fire only provides a 20% damage buff. Whisper of Rending also stacks with damage buffs like High-Energy Fire, leading to some absurd damage spikes against majors and bosses that are frozen. Unfortunately, that's only for Primary weapons—a weapon class that you aren't using to fight those enemies normally.

Related: Destiny 2: The Best Hunter Builds For PvP And PvE

If you play PvP, this Fragment also helps mitigate the massive 50% damage reduction Primaries have against frozen targets. This Fragment will cause frozen targets to take 25% less damage from Priamries instead, a major improvement but nothing game-changing.

Shadebinder Warlocks will get the most use out of this Fragment, as it gives that subclass a reliable means of shattering Stasis crystals. And since Shadebinders are tuned around freezing enemies constantly, gaining a 43% damage buff against frozen targets is nothing to scoff at. But for every other subclass or those that don't main hard-hitting Primaries, this Fragment isn't worth using.

10 Whisper of Impetus

Whisper of Impetus: Damaging targets with a Stasis melee reloads your stowed weapons and grants you a temporary boost to weapon ready speed.

Hunter mains addicted to bottom tree Nightstalker's Heart of the Pack buff will love this Fragment. Whisper of Impetus will cause your melee abilities to reload your stowed weapons while granting a five-second handling boost. This boost is comparable to what Heart of the Pack provides, mimicking the effects of Quickdraw and Snapshot Sights while active.

Revenants will get the most use out of this Fragment, mostly due to Gambler's Dodge, but Shadebinders building around Stasis shards can make good use of Whisper of Impetus. Crafty players can use this Fragment to bypass reloading entirely, swapping to Special and Heavy weapons to deal constant damage. Utilize a Rocket Launcher and any Special weapon for some absurd PvE burst DPS.

PvP players can also utilize this effect to make low handling weapons feel much more responsive. Aggressive Frame Shotguns become much more responsive while this buff is active, and most Sniper Rifles become as fast as Beloved. It might be a niche buff that's tough to utilize, but it's incredibly strong if you can build around it.

9 Whisper Of Hunger

Whisper of Hunger: Increases the melee energy gained from picking up Stasis shards. -10 Mobility. -10 Recovery.

Whisper of Hunger doubles the amount of melee energy gained from Stasis shards, increasing the melee energy gains from 10% to around 20%. This comes with a massive caveat of -10 to the Mobility and Recovery stats. Whisper of Hunger does not enhance the healing effects provided by Whisper of Rime.

Hunters are putting themselves at a serious disadvantage using this Fragment, but Titans and Warlocks can get some use out of this. Shadebinders especially get a ton of mileage out of this Fragment, allowing them to use Penumbral Blast much more frequently when paired with the Glacial Harvest Aspect.

Overall, it's an incredibly powerful Fragment in PvP if your build can afford it, although most PvE Stasis builds and Revenant Hunters will have a hard time using this over other options.

8 Whisper Of Hedrons

Whisper of Hedrons: Dramatically increases weapon stability, weapon aim assist, Mobility, Resilience, and Recovery after freezing a target with Stasis. -10 Strength.

Hedrons no longer grants a 25% damage buff after freezing a target. While it's undeniably worse than it was pre-rework, Whisper of Hedrons is still one of the best Fragments in the game for Crucible players.

This Fragment provides quite a few buffs. While active, Hedrons will grant a 12-second buff named "Stat Boost" that grants the following:

  • +30 Mobility, Resilience, and Recovery
  • Increased weapon stability
  • Increased weapon aim assist
  • Better in-air accuracy

The final effect isn't listed anywhere on the Fragment's description, yet it's easily the most powerful effect that Hedrons grants. Whisper of Hedrons grants Icarus Grip to all of your weapons and stacks with the Icarus Grip mod. If you have this effect active and Icarus Grip on your weapon, your in-air accuracy is nearly the same as your grounded accuracy, making the likes of Shotguns and Sniper Rifles much more lethal while in the air.

Related: Destiny 2: The Best Titan Builds For PvP And PvE

As for the stability and aim assist, it's hard to quantify how strong the effects are, but they are noticeable. Weapons like Hand Cannons and Auto Rifles become much more responsive on subsequent shots while this buff is active.

Overall, Whisper of Hedrons has been reworked into a PvP-focused Fragment. PvE players will have a hard time justifying this Fragment over other choices. If you're a Crucible player that loves Exotics like Chaperone or Duality, give this Fragment a try.

7 Whisper of Torment

Whisper of Torment: You gain grenade energy each time you take damage from targets.

Whenever you receive damage from any enemy, you will gain around 5% of your grenade energy back. This has an internal cooldown of around one second. If you take damage from multiple sources, the effect will only proc once. Whisper of Torment works in PvP.

A 5% increase might sound bad, but you'd be surprised just how often you're taking damage in Destiny 2. If you're in the middle of a gunfight, this Fragment can give you grenade back much faster than normal. Assuming you take continuous fire and have no grenade regen, you would gain your grenade back every 20 seconds. That's nearly twice as fast as a 100 Discipline build, and you can stack this with mods such as Firepower and Grenade Kickstart.

So why don't more builds use this Fragment more often? Quite simply, most builds just don't have enough space. Whisper of Shards is more potent for Shatterdive Hunters, Behemoth Titans typically build around Stasis shards, and Shadebinder Warlocks use Exotics like Verity's Brow to get their grenades back quickly. It's a great Fragment for PvE and PvP, but it isn't quite good enough to be valued above some other entries on this list.

6 Whisper Of Bonds

Whisper of Bonds: Defeating frozen targets grants you Super energy. -10 Intellect and -10 Discipline.

Orpheus Rig has become a Stasis Fragment somewhat in the form of Whisper of Bonds. With this Fragment equipped, defeating frozen enemies will grant you Super energy at the cost of -10 Intellect and Discipline.

Every enemy grants 2.5% Super energy on kill. While that sounds low, freezing a small group of enemies can generate a large chunk of Super energy. Shadebinders can use this Fragment to great effect when paired with Coldsnap Grenades, capable of obtaining their Super in under a minute. Behemoths might want to skip this Fragment unless they use Coldsnap Grenades or freeze tons of enemies with Glacier Grenades. Revenants can use Bonds to help refund Super energy upon casting Silence & Squall.

What makes this Fragment truly powerful is its synergy with Ager's Scepter. Every kill while using Will Given Form will refund Super energy—a resource the gun needs to stay in its supercharged state. Every subclass that uses Ager's Scepter will want this Fragment. Shadebinders and Revenants will want to use this Fragment for Super-reliant builds. With all of that said, Whisper of Bonds has some rather major stat negatives that make it tough to recommend for PvP builds.

5 Whisper Of Conduction

Whisper of Conduction: Nearby Stasis shards track to your position. +10 Intellect. +10 Resilience.

Stasis shards will track towards your location, similar to how Soul Devourer works on Thorn. The tracking speed is quite slow, although the effective range of this Fragment is quite large, capable of pulling objects around corners towards you. Since shards are instanced, only you will benefit from the shard tracking.

On the surface, this seems like a lackluster Fragment, yet its synergy with other shard Aspects and Fragments makes it an excellent pick for certain builds. When paired with Whisper of Rime, you can have an effective means of healing after every engagement in PvE or PvP. The stat increases are also fantastic, with Conduction being the only Fragment that buffs your Intellect stat. Crucible players should definitely consider using this Fragment if they're playing any type of shard build.

4 Whisper Of Fissures

Whisper of Fissures: Increases the damage and size of the burst of Stasis when you destroy a Stasis crystal or defeat a frozen target.

Any build that focuses on shattering Stasis crystals will want to pick up Whisper of Fissures. This Fragment will increase the damage and size of Stasis detonations while equipped.

Related: Destiny 2: The Best Warlock Builds For PvP And PvE

It's hard to quantify how much of a difference this makes, but it is definitely noticeable. The area coverage and damage increase seem to be twice as much, turning Glacier Grenades into icy Nova Bombs if shattered quickly. Every class can benefit from this to some degree. Shadebinders freeze so many targets that this provides a solid chunk of add clear—particularly with Rifts when paired with Vesper of Radius.

Behemoths and Revenants can also detonate Stasis with ease, making Whisper of Fissures one of the strongest Fragments if paired with Glacier Grenades. Ager's Scepter also benefits from Whisper of Fissures, covering a much larger area when it detonates a target. For PvE and PvP Stasis builds, Whisper of Fissures is almost always a good pick.

3 Whisper Of Shards

Whisper of Shards: Shattering a Stasis crystal temporarily boosts your grenade recharge rate. Shattering additional Stasis crystals increases the duration of this benefit. +10 Resilience.

With Whisper of Shards equipped, any Stasis crystals you destroy—friend or foe—will grant a temporary boost to your grenade recharge rate. It also grants +10 Resilience. Every crystal destroyed grants five seconds to this buff. Destroying multiple crystals will increase the buff's duration to a maximum of ten seconds.

The regeneration bonus is on par with the Grenadier modifier seen in strikes and Nightfalls. A ten-second buff from Whisper of Shards grants around 70% grenade energy in PvE and 50% grenade energy in PvP. Couple this with a high Discipline stat to have a grenade up every 10-12 seconds. Glacier Grenades and weapons with the Headstone perk synergize best with this Fragment. If you're a Shatterdiving Revenant or a defensive Behemoth, this is a must-own.

2 Whisper Of Rime

Whisper of Rime: Collecting a Stasis shard grants a small amount of overshield, which falls off after 10 seconds. Collecting additional shards adds to the overshield and refreshes the timer.

Stasis shards are the melee crystals that spawn if you use a Harvest Aspect on your class. These shards will grant a small amount of overshield when grabbed, equating to around 10% of your health bar. The amount received is based on your class. Titans get the least at 10%, Warlocks get a little more (around 12%), and Hunters get around 15% per shard. At full capacity, the overshield grants 100 points of health. For PvP, these values are increased. The overshield is not granted if you're currently using a Super.

What the description doesn't tell you is that this Fragment can heal you. If you aren't at full health, the shards will replenish your health for the same percentage of overshields you would have received. It should be rather clear that this is an S-tier Fragment for PvP. For PvE, this Fragment provides a great survivability boost and method of healing mid-fight.

1 Whisper of Chains

Whisper of Chains: While you are near frozen targets or a friendly Stasis crystal, you take reduced damage from targets.

Whisper of Chains stands as a direct counter to damage buffs, reducing all damage you take by 25% while near a frozen target or friendly Stasis crystal. Friendly Stasis crystals include you or any allied crystal generated from Glacier Grenade, Salvation's Grip, the Glacial Quake Super, or any frozen enemies.

Chains' description does not state "combatant" in its description, meaning it works inside the Crucible. A 25% DR buff is significant, preventing 120 RPM Hand Cannons from two-tapping players with a large damage buff. This is a phenomenal choice for Crucible players, regardless of class. As for PvE, a 25% DR boost is fantastic for pinnacle content, allowing you to survive long-range attacks and AoE blasts. If you decide to use Stasis and have a means of generating crystals, Whisper of Chains should always be in your build. It's that good.

On Tuesday, Bungie launched a massive patch targeting Destiny 2’s Stasis — the game’s newest power set — to the relief of Destiny’s hardcore PvP community. Hotfix 3.1.1.1 fixes a few bugs, but primarily it targets the oppressive power of Stasis, especially in the game’s multiplayer arena.

For a complete list of patch notes, scroll down.

One of the biggest changes for all three classes is to the Duskfield grenade. The grenade’s pull radius is about a two-thirds of what it was, from 9.5 meters to 6 meters. The grenade field also doesn’t slow players as quickly. Stasis Crystals also deal reduced Shatter damage, meaning they won’t be as dangerous to nearby players.

Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks all saw some individual changes as well. Hunter’s Shatterdive now has a four-second cooldown, and Wither Blade deals less damage to players in PvE. Titans no longer freeze nearby players when activating Glacial Quake, and they take more damage while Supering. Warlocks actually got a buff to their Super’s tracking in PvP, but the detonation for frozen targets now scales down.

Many of these changes only apply to PvP, and most of these abilities should be just as potent in PvE as they were a week ago.


Here are the official patch notes for Hotfix 3.1.1.1.

  • Using the combo of a Shiver Strike into a Heavy slam attack will now cost the full Super energy of both the Shiver Strike and the slam (this previously only cost energy for the slam).

Shiver Strike

  • Increased downwards velocity applied to Shiver Striking players when they are slowed to more quickly pull them out of the air.
  • Fixed an issue where Shiver Strike (or Thundercrash) could get the player stuck against soft ceilings in Crucible maps.

Warlocks

Winter’s Wrath

  • Improved tracking of Winter’s Wrath projectiles, now tracking strength decays from its max value over 10s instead of 2.2s.
  • Increased the size of the Warlock Super projectile’s proximity detonation radius 1.5m – 1.65m.

Destiny 2 Season of the Lost is here and we’re heading back to The Dreaming City. Acting as a prologue to The Witch Queen expansion, this season revolves around freeing Savathun from her worm god to save Osiris from her clutches. Along with a new seasonal activity, players can also obtain new armor, weapons, exotics, and in-game consumables. If you’re looking to hop into some endgame content or just want to freeze everything around you, this is the build for you. Keep in mind, this is for endgame content such as raids or high-tier Nightfalls and is not for PVP. While you can run this in the Crucible, I really don’t advise it since a lot of this build focuses on map/enemy control.

Additionally, it’s important to note that this isn’t the only good Warlock build in Destiny 2. There are plenty you can pick from that are totally viable in Destiny’s endgame. But this is perhaps the most consistent Stasis build for this class, even when compared to the Ager’s Scepter and Mantle of Battle Harmony.

The Game Plan

The crux of this build revolves around using the Bleak Watcher Stasis Aspect to control the battlefield. While this turret lacks damage, its ability to zone out entire areas is unrivaled. Typically, players will only have one out at a time, but with my build, we can consistently get two, sometimes three turrets out. This lets us stop Champions dead in their tracks and give our fireteam some much-needed breathing room. We will need to manage multiple ability regeneration buffs, which has a bit of a learning curve. However, once you get the timing down in your head you will be constantly refreshing your turrets.

Subclass & Mods

Destiny 2 Best Warlock Build

Stasis Aspects & Fragments

  • Bleak Watcher (Aspect) – The core of my build. Bleak Watcher allows us to convert our Stasis grenades into turrets that freeze and slow enemies that are struck by them.
  • Glacial Harvest (Aspect) – Since we are using the Elemental Shards buff, we will need to run Glacial Harvest to ensure we make Stasis shards. This combo isn’t necessary for the build but it does give us much-needed consistency.
  • Whisper of Shards (Fragment) – One of our core Fragments, this give us grenade ability regeneration whenever we shatter a Stasis Crystal. Since we will be doing this a lot, Whisper of Shards will constantly trigger so long as you can land precision kills.
  • Whisper of Torment (Fragment) – We gain grenade damage whenever we take damage. Given this will happen a lot, it’s just a nice passive bonus that requires little effort on our end.
  • Whisper of Durance (Fragment) – With this Fragment equipped our Bleak Watcher’s duration will increase. That’s it. That’s the entire reason I’m using this.
  • Whisper of Chains (Fragment) – So this last Fragment is open to a bit of customization. Personally, I like using Whisper of Chains, not only because it gives us +10 to our Recovery, but the reduced damage from frozen targets can save our life in a pinch.

Destiny 2 Best Warlock Build

Mods

  • Elemental Armaments – Since we will largely be using elemental wells to trigger our abilities, we need a consistent way to make them. Elemental Armaments turns our Stasis weapons into well-making machines that will fuel our build.
  • Grenade Kickstart – A new mod you can purchase from the Wayfinder’s Compass. Grenade Kickstart simply gives us some grenade energy back whenever we throw out a grenade/Bleak Watcher.
  • Elemental Shards – The sole reason we are running the Glacial Harvest Aspect, Elemental Shards converts all our Stasis shards into elemental wells. This gives us a lot of consistency since we will be spawning a ton of these with Bleak Watcher.
  • Elemental Charge // Firepower –  Another mod combo that revolves around getting grenade energy back. Elemental Charge will get us Charged With Light stacks whenever we grab an elemental well while Firepower gives us grenade energy whenever we cast our grenade. Combining this with Grenade Kickstart gives us a nice boost of energy right away.
  • Particle Deconstruction – Look, it’s the best damage buff mod in the game right now and should be run in any high-level PVE content.

Weapons

Destiny 2 Best Warlock Build

Kinetic – Vulpecula or Peacebond

For your Kinetic slot, I strongly recommend running either Vulpecula or Peacebond. Not only are these Stasis weapons, but they will synergize with Verity’s Brow. Both are exceptionally useful in PVE, but to push this build over the edge you will want one with the new Headstone perk. This creates a Stasis crystal whenever you kill a target with precision damage. We can then shatter that crystal to trigger Whisper of Shards, giving us increased ability regeneration.

Of the two, I personally am hunting for a Peacebond since it can roll with both Demolitionist and Headstone. Plus, we can also use this sidearm to stun Unstoppable Champions which is always nice. That being said, Vulpecula with Headstone can more than get the job done. Just make sure your Primary weapon is Stasis, otherwise, Verity’s Brow will be pretty much useless.

Energy – Anything You Want

You can run any Special weapon you want in this slot, so feel free to pick your favorite. If you are unsure, you can never go wrong with Null Composer or Cartesian Coordinate, since they are absolute monsters this season. However, Salavger’s Salvo, Uzume RR4, and Truthteller are terrific alternatives.

Heavy – One Thousand Voices or Reed’s Regret

Surprising literally no one, the ideal Heavy weapon is One Thousand Voices. With the Particle Deconstruction mod, it’s the best endgame exotic weapon in the game at the moment. If you don’t have this weapon, another great option is the Trials of Osiris linear fusion rifle, Reed’s Regret. This weapon can roll with perks like Triple Tap, Clown Cartridge, Firing Line, and Vorpal Weapon. This firearm is also Stasis, meaning it will work with Verity’s Brow which is a nice little bonus. On the off chance you don’t have either of these weapons, some other options are Sleeper Simulant, Threaded Needle, and Ascendancy.

Armor

Destiny 2 Best Warlock Build

Exotic – Verity’s Brow

The last piece of the puzzle. Verity’s Brow allows us to have a constant stream of grenade regeneration since our primary weapon is Stasis. It’s very easy to get Death Throes x5 and even in raids where enemies hit a little bit harder. While you may not be able to reach the maximum amount of stacks in Grandmaster Nightfalls, the sheer benefits it offers make it worth using. We will also be helping our team since we’ll be constantly throwing out our grenades, which boosts our allies’ ability regeneration as well. I strongly recommend grinding for a good roll that has high Intellect and Recovery.

Once you put everything together, you will be able to freeze everything in your path with little effort. Just make sure to pick up the Stasis shards and break the Stasis crystals!

All Fragments and best ones to use - Destiny 2

Fragments are a new type of ability modifier in Destiny 2. Introduced with the Beyond Light expansion in 2020, Fragments drastically improve player builds and allow them to fine-tune their playstyle. With so many to choose from, and only being able to unlock them one at a time, picking the right one to unlock and the best ones to use can be tough. Let’s see what’s on offer and what you should be equipping.


All Fragments – Destiny 2

There are quite a few Fragments for players to unlock in Destiny 2. As the game continues to expand and evolve, players should likely expect more to be added to the sandbox. Below are all the Fragments currently available in the game.

Best Fragments to use

Depending on what class you’re playing, the best Fragments for you may change slightly. However, there are some undeniably fantastic choices, especially for your first unlocks.

  • Whisper of Hedrons
  • Whisper of Bonds

Whisper of Hedrons is the obvious pick and one of the best Fragments in Destiny 2. This Fragment boosts your weapon damage whenever you freeze an enemy with Stasis. By using Stasis abilities, you’re practically always freezing enemies which means you ought to always have this damage buff active. In a boss fight, the extra damage can certainly help get some teams over the line.

Whisper of Bonds synergizes quite well with Whisper of Hedrons as destroying a frozen target grants Super energy. Freeze targets to get the damage buff and destroy them to get Super energy. You’ll then be throwing out your Super, which freezes enemies once more. It’s a beautiful cycle.

Another option some players may want to explore is Whisper of Refraction. This Fragment does what Bonds does but for your Class ability.

Though it might sound good, Whisper of Shards is actually more difficult to proc. The reason for this is that few abilities actually create Stasis crystals. For example, the Glacier Grenade and Salvation’s Grip are some of the only ways of creating Stasis crystals. If you are able to create a lot of crystals, consider coupling Shards with Whisper of Fissures to ensure you get the most bang for your buck.

Then there’s Whisper of Endurance, which increases the slow effect and keeps lingering abilities around for longer. This is good, but not great. It may be useful for the Duskfield Grenade whenever the Thermal Overload and Surge Eater mods are available.

Season of the Chosen added four new Fragments for players to unlock. Out of all available options, the only one that doesn’t seem as immediately beneficial as the others is Whisper of Impetus. The reason why Impetus might not be a top choice is that it requires a fully charged Stasis melee to proc, at which point your stowed weapons are reloaded. This is useful, but not as much as the others.

Whisper of Torment ensures that taking damage from enemies has a positive effect in that it charges your grenade. Meanwhile, Chains reduces how much damage you take when near frozen enemies. This is no doubt useful when there are a lot of enemies on the field. The final one, Fractures, has your melee recharging faster when near two or more enemies – this might pair well with Impetus for those punchy Titans.


As Fragments are added, the variety of builds available to Stasis-users is only going to grow. As for the other subclasses, we could see them reworked to offer Fragments of their own in the future. For now, though, start exploring the Fragments in Destiny 2 and create the best build for you. Sparrow over to the Shacknews Destiny 2 guide for more insights into builds and weapon recommendations.

The kid offers to catch a wild earth girl and bring her here. The network also believes that this is necessary. Galactic and wild earthlings can transform into different biological species if genes are not mixed. And we have adorable kids. We will only choose together, we will live with her.

The stag + Whisper of chains is unkillable in PvP (Destiny 2)

We froze so close to each other, our eyes did not even think to close for a kiss, because for the first time. We see each other so close, so truly, that it is impossible to tear ourselves away. And that's why my eyes closed only after that time, when our lips closed in a kiss, and all visual pleasure thickened into one small tear of salvation, which swaddled everything.
