Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer ends in a few short weeks, and the gang over at Bungie are starting to share some of the changes that will arrive when the new season starts in its sci-fi shooter MMO. Today’s This Week at Bungie details a significant rebalance of many guardian subclass abilities that’s going to force some players to rethink some tried and true strategies both in PvE and the Crucible.
Perhaps most notable among the subclass adjustments is the nerf coming for middle-tree Dawnblade warlocks’ Well of Radiance. Bungie says it’s a “no-brainer” ability to use on many of the game’s bosses, and starting next season, wells will be more vulnerable to boss damage. Currently, a Well of Radiance takes 0.25x boss damage, and that’s getting ramped up to 1.5x, meaning that bosses will be able to destroy these wells much faster.
Don’t fret too much about that, Warlocks – while it won’t be as viable in PvE, your Well of Radiance is getting a boost in the Crucible, with its damage resistance buff vs. enemy players increasing from 20% to 40%.
