Making sure your Guardian looks cool is perhaps the most important thing in Destiny 2. Sure, having armor with good stats is important, but what’s the point of that if you don’t look cool as well? Luckily, Destiny 2 allows us to customize the appearance of our armor, so we don’t have to sacrifice stats for fashion. Today, we’ve collected the top 10 best looking Warlock armor sets in Destiny 2, including some shaders for our top 5.
Let’s get started!
Best Looking Warlock Armor Sets, Ranked
We’ll be ranking the best Warlock armor sets in Destiny 2, from Stylish to Spellbinding.
Where to Get: Ketchcrash
Kicking off our list of the best looking Warlock armor sets in Destiny 2, we have the Ketchkiller suit! The Ketchkiller suit released with Season 18, and while it might look kind of ugly, it also has a great aesthetic and attention to detail.
Since its season was somewhat pirate themed, so is the suit. However, it’s not just standard pirate gear — it’s Destiny pirate gear. Which means it’s kind of weird looking, and leaves you dressed like one of the Spider’s henchmen. Which is cool, considering they’re kind of “pirates” as well. This suit is really well designed and has lots of unique details that add to its overall vibe.
Reverie Dawn Suit
Where to Get: Dreaming City activities (including Blind Well, Shattered Throne, Public Events, etc.)
This is one of the more “graceful” Warlock sets. It manages to look classy as well as flashy, and no one point of the set stands out above the rest. This is definitely one of the more low-key options, since there’s nothing particularly eye-grabbing about it. But that’s one of its strong points.
Not every armor set needs to grab everyone’s attention. This one is a great example of how to look cool while also not looking ridiculous or over-the-top.
Where to Get: Xur (he has one set per week, so you’ll have to wait until he has it)
The Holdfast Suit is an interesting one, for sure. At first, it seemed a bit ridiculous, but it’s grown over time to be one of the better suits for Warlock. It has a robotic look, and pairs surprisingly well with other ornaments/pieces.
The only downside here is that the chest piece is by far the best, and the other pieces are kind of just there. If you don’t mind a set that’s all about one thing, though, this is one of the slickest in the game.
Pyrrhic Ascent Suit
Where to Get: Trials of Osiris (this set is not currently in the Trials pool, so it’s uncertain where/if you can get it or if it will return in the future)
The Pyrrhic Ascent Suit is absolutely beautiful. It doesn’t have any specific theme like some suits do, but that’s not a problem. The bronze, gold, and deep blue compliment one another so well that it’s hard not to be drawn to this set.
It does also have nice attention to detail, similar to the Ketch suit earlier. This can be seen best in the detailed patterns on the back, as well as the knife and notebook on the side and back of the suit.
Where to Get: Dares of Eternity (the Dares pool rotates each week, but this set should be in the pool once every few weeks)
This suit is great because of how unique it is. The bug-like Helmet is certainly weird, but it works well with the rest of the armor. If you’re looking for a suit you can mix and match with, the other pieces of this suit tend to work surprisingly well with other pieces.
The chest piece has fur on the upper part, as well as some bug-like stuff on the back that does make it look weird, but not in a bad way. The arms also have the fur, but they’re less flashy than the rest. All in all, this suit is one of the best seasonal sets Bungie has made, and we hope they make more like it in the future.
Where to Get: Vault of Glass (Raid)
Halfway through our list of the best looking Warlock armor sets in Destiny 2, we have the Hezen Suit from Vault of Glass. This is one of the flashiest, most eye-grabbing sets in the game.
The bronze and green contrast well, and shaders usually retain that feature. Most shaders make this armor look even more contrasting than it already is. Here’s an example of that with the Bitterpearl, Jacarina, and Malibeaux Bronze shaders.
Personally, I think the wilder shaders look better on this suit, since they make it stand out so much. But, if you prefer something more subtle, there are certainly options for that as well. The standout nature of this suit is similar to that of the Moonfang-X7 Suit on Titan, which is definitely a compliment.
Where to Get: Prophecy (Dungeon)
The Channeling Suit is simply the cleanest armor set for Warlocks. While the Moonfang-X7 Suit is typically the more popular of the Prophecy armor sets, the Channeling Suit is far better for Warlocks. It has a futuristic aesthetic that couples well with its simplicity. The helmet is wide and looks strange, but in a way that adds to the overall set. This is one of the definitive Warlock sets, and since Prophecy is pretty easy, it’s not too hard to get.
We paired it with the shaders Dawning Celebration, Circadian Chill, and Up For Grabs. Shaders tend to look really great on the Channeling Suit. Honestly, if you ever want to see the full range of a shader, it’s a great one to test them out on. And with some of the more colorful shaders, like Up For Grabs on the right, it kind of makes the Guardian look like a Power Ranger, which is always cool.
Worm God Suit
Where to Get: King’s Fall (Raid)
The Worm God Suit is a truly “grand” armor set. It follows the hive aesthetic from the King’s Fall raid, and perfectly encapsulates what that raid looks like. The chest piece is beautiful and takes shaders really well, especially considering all its unique parts. Here it is in its default look, then with the Dawning Tranquility and Iron Vendetta shaders.
As you can see, this set takes both the more colorful and darker shaders well. There aren’t a ton of sets that you can say that about, so it’s definitely worth grinding the raid for.
Corrupting Echo Suit
Where to Get: Grasp of Avarice (Dungeon)
For this set, it’s all about the aesthetic. Lots of people refer to this set as the “Thorn armor,” which makes sense given its similarities to that weapon. As the name would suggest, there is a “corrupted” vibe to this set.
If you’ve ever wanted your Warlock to look like an evil MMORPG villain, this is the set to go for. On a down note, though, this set doesn’t always take shaders too well. Here’s Nailbiter, Rustberry, and Oiled Algae on the chest piece.
Nailbiter, along with most of the more bright and colorful shaders, doesn’t look too great here. But, since it’s meant to be a “dark” set, that’s fair enough. Rustberry and Oiled Algae look pretty good, though. Darker shaders are definitely the way to go with the Corrupting Echo set, or ones with black and white, since the contrast works well here.
TM-Moss Custom Suit
Where to Get: Spire of the Watcher (Dungeon)
Topping off our list of the best looking Warlock armor in Destiny 2 is, unsurprisingly, the TM-Moss Custom Suit! This set is great on all three classes, but the Warlock version stands out the most.
Bungie did a fantastic job capturing an Old West aesthetic within the Destiny universe. The cowboy hat is, of course, the star of the show. But every piece of this suit is amazing. From the stylish duster cloak to the leather gloves, this is the best armor set for Warlock fashion in Destiny 2. Here’s a look at the full set in the default shader, then with the Grand Luster and Pole Position shaders.
Also, there is some text on the back part of the coat which can be annoying. Sometimes it doesn’t show up on shaders at all because of non-contrasting dark colors. Most of the time, though, it shows up very clearly. It’s not too bad, but it has to be mentioned.
