So I've decided to main Warlock for a few weeks as I attempt to hone my skill on and improve with that class.
I discovered Transversive Steps last night. In case you don't know what those are, T-Steps are a very fun Warlock exotic boot that makes you sprint faster and reloads your equipped weapon as you do it. Some of you may have gone to the same place I did.
Immediately, out came the Parcel of Stardust and the Recluse. Why that specific combination, you ask? I'm glad you asked!
Parcel of Stardust is a lightweight frame shotgun. It clocks in at 80 RPM, and you move faster with it equipped. My roll has Corkscrew Rifling, Accurized Rounds, Snapshot Sights, Pulse Monitor, and a Range masterwork.
The Recluse is a lightweight frame submachine gun. It clocks in at 900 RPM, and you move faster with it equipped. It also features a unique perk called Master of Arms, which procs on any weapon kill and increases Recluse damage by a hefty amount for ~5 seconds.
I combined all that with top tree Daybreak, Attunement of Sky. This gives me the Icarus Dash ability, which works very similarly to a Hunter dodge, the catch being that I have to be airborne for it to work. Unlike a Hunter dodge however, Icarus Dash can be used every 6 seconds or so. Combined with T-Steps, Burst Glide, and lightweight frame weapons, it all makes for a very mobile build and playstyle.
I had a really good time zipping around the map shotgunning and melting my opponents. I've found it shines the most on semi-enclosed maps such as The Dead Cliffs, Javelin-4, and Solitude.
Overall, I think it could be a very strong build if I was better with the Warlock class. I look forward to using it more.
Perhaps, I'll throw Stompees on my Hunter and run the same loadout...
