Destiny 2 highest armor stats DEFAULT

What’s the highest stat roll attainable for armor 2.0?

The highest base stat I have is 69, on wings of sacred dawn followed by base stat of 68 on helm of Saint-14. Thus, when masterworked (+12) they are 81 and 80. With a +10 mod, they are 91 and 90. NOTE: I have had great success with un-focussed umbral engrams. This season I have gotten about 12-14 pieces of exotic armor, including the helm of saint-14 with the base stat of 68. Most of my exotic pieces that drop from the umbral engrams seem to fall with a base state of 64-66. I have gotten three with base stat of 67.

Destiny 2: Everything You Need To Know About Armor Stats

By Jeffery Zoldy

ShareTweetEmail

Learn all about Destiny 2's Armor 2.0 system, including how armor stats work and how to mod gear to create the perfect set.

Introduced to Destiny 2 in late 2019, Armor 2.0 completely revamped the game's gear system, bringing a number of new stats to keep track of and ways to change them. For Guardians who are new to Destiny 2 or have been playing for years but still don't quite understand this system, this guide is here to be a guiding Light.

The goal of Armor 2.0 was to give players more agency in customizing their armor pieces to complement their playstyle and help them play their own way. This control comes in the form of armor mods, which affect a piece of armor's stats. It is important to note that this only applies to armor from Year 3 (the Shadowkeep expansion) and onwards; older gear pieces will have to be earned again to take full advantage of armor stats and modification.

RELATED: Destiny 2 Details Great Changes to Armor Mods for Beyond Light

There are six major armor stats for gear in Destiny 2: mobility, resilience, recovery, discipline, intellect, and strength. According to the game, mobility "increases your movement speed and maximum jump height," resilience "increases the amount of damage you can take before dying," recovery "increases the speed at which you regain lost health," discipline "increases the cooldown time of your grenades, allowing you to use them more often," intellect "decreases the cooldown of your Super ability, allowing you to use it more often," and strength "decreases the cooldown time of your melee ability, allowing you to use it more often."

With Armor 2.0, every piece of gear (with certain exceptions) will drop with random values for each of these stats. Each piece of armor has a value of 1 to 100, with every 10 points giving that particular stat a boost in effectiveness; for example, a resilience stat of 60 will allow players to take more damage than a stat of 30. Equipping different armor sets will change stats in different ways, which is designed to encourage player experimentation.

If Guardians find a piece or set of armor that they are partial to, however, they can upgrade those pieces of gear to enhance their stats. Each piece of armor has an elemental affinity tied to it that determines what mods it is compatible with (more on mods in a minute).

Armor pieces can also be upgraded up to level 10, with each level increasing its base stats. Leveling up armor costs Glimmer, as well as materials like Legendary Shards. When an item reaches level 10, it achieves "Masterworked" status and gives it a +2 stat boost.

As stated above, armor stats are also affected by mods, which can give gear perks as well as boosting certain stat values. Every mod has a value, with some being higher than others. The higher an armor piece's level, the more mods a player can equip. For example, if a player has a level 3 helmet, they can only equip one level 3 mod; if they upgrade that same helmet to level 7, they can equip a level 3 mod, as well as two additional level 2 mods.

Since Armor 2.0's introduction, Bungie has also added different variations to mods, including seasonal mods that provide specific perks for that season's special activity. These function similarly to regular mods, just with more unique perks and a limited time to utilize them.

Armor 2.0 also affects Exotic-level gear, though these special pieces of gear feature a few key differences from regular armor. Exotic armor still have random stat rolls, but they come equipped with one perk besides their Exotic perk—meaning players do not need to add a mod to gain a perk, though they can add more perks once they level up the Exotic gear. This gives Exotic gear even more of an edge over even Legendary-level gear and encourages players to use their mods wisely to give this high-tier armor the perfect stats.

Armor stats can seem imposing at first glance, but with a little experimentation even the most inexperienced Guardians can create finely-tuned gear.

Destiny 2 and its expansions are now available on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and Stadia.

Destiny 2: How to Get High Stat Armor in Season of the Lost

Learn how to get high stat armor in Destiny 2 Season of the Lost. Hight stat armor is needed for any PvP or PvE activity like Nightfalls or Trials.

Learn how to get high stat armor in Destiny 2Season of the Lost. Hight stat armor is needed for any PvP or PvE activity, and it's been made easier to acquire than ever in Destiny 2. Higher stats mean abilities can recharge faster, damage resistance will be higher, and players can recover from damage faster. The best armor stats are going to vary from character to character, and even playstyle, but now is the perfect time to start creating a variety of armor builds before the Witch Queen expansion launches - and this method disappears.

Some of the newest additions to Destiny 2 in Season of the Lost are the six different Stat Armorer mods that can be equipped on Ghosts. These are mods that take up energy in the Ghosts' third slot, and they can be earned through any random Legendary Engram. When any of the mods are equipped, any piece of armor found is guaranteed to have a minimum of 10 points for that particular stat, and they are more likely to drop even higher than that.

Related: Every Vendor in Destiny 2 (& What They Sell)

Passively playing through Destiny 2 with any of the desired stat mods equipped will earn players their desired high stats pieces, but they can actually further target farm rolls for the ideal builds. Additionally, although only one armor stat mod can be equipped at a time, two different stats can be targeted with the help of the Prismatic Recaster. Destiny 2'Prismatic Recaster has many different options for Tier III armor focusing within the Season of the Chosen, Splicer, and Lost subscreens - but the Season of the Splicer armor is more likely to have a higher stat roll than the other two.

How to Get High Stat Armor in Destiny 2

Both Umbral Engrams and Decrypted Data are needed in order to focus Tier III Umbral Engrams in the Season of the Splicer subvendor. Decrypted Data can be earned by completing either Override or Expunge missions in Destiny 2. Use 150 Decrypted Data and a single Umbral Engram to focus a piece of Tier III armor.

Unfortunately, specific armor pieces cannot be farmed directly, so the type of armor with the stats will always be random. Additionally, only three Tier III armor pieces can be focused a week in Destiny 2, so anyone who misses out on any given week won't be able to backtrack for high stat armor. Make use of the high stat armor to prepare for end-game activities like Grandmaster Nightfalls and Trials of Osiris.

Destiny 2 - QUADRUPLE 100 STATS \u0026 ARMOR EXPLAINED - WHICH ARMOR TO KEEP, Numbers for Quadruple 100s

Armor stats and tier charts - Destiny 2

The armor in Destiny 2 has grown in complexity since the game first launched in 2017. Back then, players barely had any late-game stats to chase outside of armor perks. Now, there are six main stats on every piece of armor, which go into affecting your Guardian’s speed, defences, as well as their cooldowns.

Before we get into the meat of the stats, credit goes to the work of Serena_Altschul over on the Destiny subreddit. This user has managed to collate the information from various sources, including user doormango and other YouTube channels, while also putting in their own research and suggestions. Make sure you check out Serena_Altschul’s post for their perspective of chasing gear.


Destiny 2 armor stats

destiny 2 armor stats explained

Armor in Destiny 2 is broken down into six key stats, with classes benefitting from one specific area for its Class Ability. These stats are as follows:

  • Mobility – Increases your movement speed and maximum jump height
  • Resilience – Increases the amount of damage you can take before dying
  • Recovery – Increases the speed at which you regain lost health
  • Discipline – Decreases the cooldown time of your grenades
  • Intellect – Decreases the cooldown of your Super ability
  • Strength – Decreases the cooldown time of your melee ability

As for the stat that benefits each of Destiny 2’s classes, they are:

  • Hunters – Mobility
  • Titans – Resilience
  • Warlocks – Recovery

What this means is that if a Hunter improves its Mobility stat, the cooldown of its Class Ability will be improved. Titans will need to improve Resilience and Warlocks must improve Recovery for their Class Ability cooldowns to be shorter.


Destiny 2 armor tiers

Destiny 2 armor tiers tables

Now we’re getting to the bulk of the mechanic. For the uninitiated, each piece of armor in Destiny 2 comes with points in the above stats (Mobility, Resilience, Recovery etc). The distribution of these points is random.

destiny 2 guardian armor stats

The points from your Helmet, Gauntlets, Chest, and Boots are added together and displayed to the right of your Guardian on the character screen. These points have a direct impact on the efficiency of the stats. For every 10 points in a given stat, that stat is increased one tier, from Tier 1 through to Tier 10. At 100 Points, a stat will be at Tier 10, so any points over 100 are excess and a waste.

The following are the stat tiers in Destiny 2 for each of the three classes. Note that each class also benefits from a stat in one specific area. This stat will improve the cooldown time of its class ability (Dodge, Barricade, or Rift).

What is a good armor roll?

This is where a lot of subjectivity and preference comes into play. In saying this, there are some gold standards when it comes to sorting the wheat from the chaff. Building a set of armor with a Tier 10 slot and another that is above Tier 5 is going to take a lot of work.

Destiny 2 armor stat split

In terms of curating the perfect set of armor for your build, well, that’s going to come down to sheer luck and determination. Serena_Altschul has given an entire rundown that includes theorycrafting what a perfect build might look like and what it could be in reality. I implore you to read the full post, as it goes into a whole lot of detail about chasing a Tier 26 build (one stat at Tier 10 another at Tier 6), but the golden piece of advice is to keep any armor that has two stats, one stat at 20+ and the other at 15+.

As for where to begin, first of all, you will likely want to focus your efforts on armor that has a point total of 60 or more. This often allows enough room for one stat to have 20 points in it and another to have 15. This also ensures that there are at least some points in the other stats so you’re not neutered in one area.

As an example, on this Holdfast Vest from Season of Arrivals below, you can see it has 67 total points, with 19 Intellect and 16 Mobility being its two highest stats. It’s not perfect, but it’s coming close. On the other hand, this Reverie Dawn Hauberk is has a total of 60 with a 20/20 point split in Mobility and Resilience (thanks to it being Armor 1.0). It also has no points in Recovery, which could be an issue depending on what you’re aiming for.

You will also need to take into account a piece of armor’s maximum Power. This will limit how long it will be viable for use in PVE end-game content. For those that are only concerned about cooldown timers for Crucible, this won’t be a problem, unless you’re playing something that relies on Power.


Understanding the stat and tier system of the armor in Destiny 2 is going to greatly help you reach a whole new end-game. Once this system does click, you will find yourself looking at the point breakdown of armor first, before you even consider its Power.

Destiny 2: A Complete Guide To Armor 2.0

Quick Links

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep made many drastic changes to the game's sandbox and loot system. The most notable change was the overhaul of armor, otherwise known as Armor 2.0. This system replaced the random-rolled perks on armor in exchange for swappable mods and random armor stats.

Related: Destiny 2: How To Reach 1330 Power Level Quickly

Intellect, Discipline, and Strength have returned to allow for more build diversity, yet there are so many moving systems that it can be rather obtuse for newer players to dive into. Fortunately, Armor 2.0 is much less intimidating than it appears. Mastering this system is key to completing Destiny 2's hardest content. Here is a complete guide to Destiny 2's Armor 2.0 system.

Updated August 25th, 2021 by Charles Burgar:Armor 2.0 has seen even more additions throughout Year 4. Season of the Lost added Stasis as an element that armor pieces can roll, complete with new Stasis mods. If you want to create the ultimate build for your Guardian, your options have just become much greater and arguably even more confusing. We've updated this guide to include the Stasis armor element, and we've clarified a few sections of the guide to make this system easier to digest.

How Armor Stats Work

There are six major armor stats that players need to manage: Mobility, Resilience, Recovery, Discipline, Intellect, and Strength. These stats determine everything from a character's strafe speed to the recharge rate of their skills.

Here's a detailed look at what each armor stat does:

StatEffectNotes
MobilityIncreases your walk and strafe speed while also increasing the height of your first jump.
  • Hunters: Also reduces Dodge cooldown
  • Does not affect sprint speed
ResilienceIncreases the amount of health your shield has. Reduces Stasis breakout damage.
  • Titans: Also reduces Barricade cooldown
RecoverySpeeds up health recovery while reducing your shield recharge delay.
  • Warlocks: Also reduces Rift cooldown.
DisciplineReduces your grenade cooldown.
IntellectReduces your Super cooldown.
StrengthReduces your melee ability cooldown.

Darkness-based subclasses also have longer cooldowns than Light-based subclasses, meaning that the numbers for Discipline, Intellect, and Strength are different based on your subclass. Keep this in mind when maximizing your stats.

Armor Stat Breakdown

If you're into numbers and min-maxing, you'll want to know how each stat behaves as you increase its value. Before we delve into specific numbers, it's important you understand how stat tiers work.

Stat Tiers

Image Gallery (6 Images)

Stat tiers refer to the value of your stat when divided by ten, rounded down. All stats in Destiny 2 can range from having a value of 0 to 100. Increasing a stat by ten points will increase its tier, granting stronger benefits.

For example, let's say that your Strength stat is 42. This is considered to be a tier four stat. If you increased the stat to 50, it becomes a tier five stat, reducing your melee cooldown by a few seconds. If you increase it yet again to 59, it would still be a tier five stat, as dividing it by ten would leave you with 5.9. Rounded down, you get five.

In essence, your tier is the first number on your stat. Try your best to not have leftover points in a given tier to maximize the effect of all of your stats.

Return to Quick Links

Stat Number Breakdown

All stats behave slightly differently when invested into. Mobility scales linearly with investment, Resilience gives slightly more benefit when invested into, Recovery becomes exponentially stronger as you invest, and the remaining three stats—Discipline, Intellect, and Strength—receive diminishing returns with high investment.

Below are the values that you can expect from each tier of a given stat. The first table is for Light subclasses. The second table is for Darkness subclasses. Only Discipline, Intellect, and Strength change between the Light and Dark subclasses.

What Are Armor Mods?

In addition to armor stats, most armor pieces can equip armor mods that can grant a wide range of buffs. Every armor piece can equip a General mod, Slot-Specific mod, and a Combat Style mod. Raid items can also store raid-exclusive mods in a fifth mod slot.

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

To equip an armor mod, head to your inventory and inspect an armor piece of your choosing. Hover your cursor over a mod slot to see which mods you can equip. Note that every mod has an energy cost that is denoted at the top of the screen beside your armor's elemental affinity. You can upgrade this energy total by using Legendary Shards and Masterwork materials. An armor piece cannot exceed ten energy.

General mods provide bonuses to your armor stats such as increased Mobility or Intellect. These mods come in two forms: +5 bonuses and +10 bonuses. The former cost around 1-2 armor energy while the latter cost 3-5 energy.

Slot-specific mods grant effects such as increased ammo on grabbing ammo bricks, faster ADS times on weapons, or taking reduced damage from certain foes.

Combat Style mods provide powerful, build-enabling effects through the use of three mechanics: Charged with Light, Warmind Cells, and Elemental Wells.

Finally, raid mods offer benefits that are only active during certain raids.

Here is what you can expect to find in the Slot-Specific mod slot:

  • Helmet: Weapon targeting and scavenger mods. Mods that grant Super energy for using abilities go here as well.
  • Gloves: Dexterity and reload speed mods. Fastball and ability energy perks go here as well.
  • Body Armor: Damage resistance, ammo reserves, and unflinching mods.
  • Boots: Ammo scavengers, weapon holsters, Orbs of Power mods, and the Traction mod.
  • Class Item: Finisher, class ability, and most Seasonal Artifact mods.

Return to Quick Links

Unlocking Mods

Players will not start Destiny 2 with every mod unlocked. The best way to unlock new mods is to obtain Legendary Engrams from vendors. Zavala is the best vendor for this, as increasing your Vanguard rank is fairly easy. Shaxx's Crucible Engrams are a good source as well. If you have a stockpile of Legendary Shards, Master Rahool's Legendary Engrams can also unlock armor mods.

Combat Style mods are tied to seasonal activities and are obtained by participating in that season's progression system and/or activity. Players that miss these seasonal mods can obtain them from Ada-1 in the Tower. She sells one random Combat Style mod each day for ten Mod Components.

Return to Quick Links

Elemental Affinities

Elemental affinities further influence the types of mods that can be used on an item. Each element is tied to a certain subset of mods curated by Bungie.

  • Solar: Grenade and health-related mods.
  • Arc: Melee mods.
  • Void: Class ability mods.
  • Stasis: Situational ability regeneration mods.

As for Combat Style mods, these elements behave a little differently:

  • Solar mods can stack with each other unless otherwise noted.
  • Arc mods have a secondary bonus that is activated if you have a second Arc mod installed on either that armor piece or in another item's Combat Style slot.
  • Void mods typically grant powerful effects for little energy at the cost of your stats.
  • Stasis mods grant powerful boons for a slightly higher energy cost.

Related: Destiny 2: Every Possible Way To Obtain Exotic Ciphers

Should you obtain an armor piece with an elemental affinity you are not happy with, you can change the item's affinity at any time by hovering over the item's elemental affinity icon and reforging it to a different element. This costs one Upgrade Module. Reforging an element while retaining your armor's rank will require Masterwork materials equal to what you previously invested. In other words, if you Masterworked an armor piece, you'll need an Ascendant Shard to reforge its element.

Return to Quick Links

Upgrading And Masterworking Armor

Upgrading armor is core to getting the most out of it. Every time you upgrade an armor piece, it will gain an additional energy point that can be used to slot additional mods into that piece. An armor piece cannot exceed ten energy, and unlocking the final three energy points on your armor will cost Enhancement Prisms and Ascendant Shards.

When a piece of armor is upgraded to its maximum of ten, it will become Masterworked. Masterworked items grant an additional +2 to every armor stat in addition to having ten energy to work with.

To find the materials needed to Masterwork your armor, you will need to obtain Enhancement Cores, Enhancement Prisms, and Ascendant Shards. Most of these materials can be obtained by completing Nightfall: The Ordeal missions located under the Vanguard section of the Director. The higher the difficulty, the rarer the Masterwork materials you'll receive. Banshee-44 and Ada-1 also sell Masterwork materials for an exorbitant price. It is not recommended to buy Masterwork materials from them unless you absolutely have to.

Shadowkeep also introduced players to Artifacts, a progression system that unlocks powerful mods that can compete with Exotics in terms of power. Only 12 Artifact mods can be unlocked at a time, and unlocking these mods comes from earning experience points. Keep in mind that once the season ends, those Artifact mods become defunct and won't function. They're worth using, however, granting strong benefits such as a weakening effect on Void grenades or increased melee ability damage. These can be obtained through a short quest introduced every season. Earn experience points by playing the game to unlock Artifact mods.

Combat Style Mods

All Legendary armor pieces also have a Combat Style mod slot that can slot in unique and powerful effects. These mods must be obtained from seasonal activities and progression systems tied to that season.

As of Season of the Lost, all Combat Style mods revolve around three mechanics: Charged with Light, Warmind Cells, and Elemental Wells. We cover each of these mechanics in our Combat Style mod guide.

How To Farm High-Stat Armor

Every armor piece is randomly rolled upon acquisition, but there are a few ways to bias armor to drop with high stats.

  • Decrypt Prime Engrams.
  • Obtain armor from raids or dungeons.
  • Focus Umbral Engrams with certain armor stat biases (can only do this three times per week).
  • Equip Armorer mods on your Ghost Shell.
  • Complete Iron Banner matches.
  • Complete Trials of Osiris matches.

For farming, your best options are the Prophecy dungeon and Iron Banner. Prophecy is the only dungeon in Destiny 2 that still drops rewards after you clear it for the first time that week, allowing you to clear the raid multiple times for high-stat armor. Iron Banner drops loads of armor with high stats, although this is a limited-time event that only happens three times per season.

While you're farming an activity, be sure to equip an Armorer mod on your Ghost. These mods will force all armor you obtain to drop with at least ten in a chosen stat, with a high chance of making that item's stat bias your chosen stat.

How To Get High Stat Armor FAST (Double 100 Stats) F2P Friendly! - Destiny 2 Season Of The Lost

I haven't seen this talked about at all on this sub so I thought I should share the information with the masses. This thread from months ago on Raidsecrets provided extremely useful information in learning how armor stats work and after cross-checking with many players, I'm confident enough that this stuff is mostly correct as this is all API-sourced information with a little bit of inference from myself.


The Very Basics

There are 6 stats on armor in Destiny, divided into two sub-groups.

Mobility/Resilience/Recovery are the first sub-group. They were the initial stats introduced in Vanilla D2.

Discipline/Intellect/Strength is the second sub-group, they were the original stats on D1 armor, added into D2 with Shadowkeep.

Stat totals are generally assumed to roll anywhere from the low 40's to low 70's and certain sources seem to have a higher base total for drops (Dungeons, Raids, IB and Prime Engrams are the most notable).

So far, this information is the stuff that most players are familiar with.


Plugs

Plugs are a set of three values assigned to a sub-group that determines part of the stat-makeup. These three values represent either Mob/Res/Rec or Dis/Int/Str.

edit?usp=sharing - How Armor Stats Roll: An Advanced Insight into stat rolls


This Spreadsheet has a list of all the possible plugs in the game. As you can see, each plug has a hash followed by the 3 values which represent the stats. These 3 values add up to anywhere from 11-17 (the rightmost column) and a stat cannot be 0, has to be at least 1.

All Legendary and Exotic armor rolls randomly pick four of these plugs (two from each sub-group) and that makes up the stats for a minimum of 44 and maximum of 68. The same plug can't be chosen twice and some Exotics can roll a teeny bit higher, more on that later.

There is a plug which has a total of 20, I've tried for a really long time to find proof of it existing in the wild but I've never found anything so I refuse to believe it's real. If anyone has a Legendary piece with base 69 stats or more, please post a picture


Exotics

Exotic rolls don't stray too far from plugs. In fact, all exotics use the exact same plug system as talked about above. There is but one caveat;

Pre-Shadowkeep exotics have intrinsic stats.

edit#gid=212527922 - How Armor Stats Roll: An Advanced Insight into stat rolls

This Spreadsheet lists the exotic pieces with their intrinsic stats.

The intrinsic stats are very minimal, ranging from +2 to +3 of the total, meaning that some specific pre-SK exotics can roll up to 71 base.

Why do the Pre-SK exotics have intrinsic stats?

Загрузка...

It's because they are carried over from the armor system before Shadowkeep released. If you take a look at the intrinsic stats, you will notice that they're all made up of mobility/resilience/recovery, the stats that existed during Vanilla D2. The stats are literally ripped from the pre-SK versions and slapped onto the 2.0 version.

One example is transversive steps. Before Shadowkeep, it rolled with 1 mobility and 1 recovery, this carried over which now means that no matter what, every transversive steps you get will have a minimum of 3 mobility and 3 recovery (2 minimum from the plugs + 1 from intrinsic)


The Hard Limits

According to all the information above, this is what we know about the limitations of our stat rolls:

  • Legendary Armor has a 44 minimum, 68 maximum base stat roll range. Post-Shadowkeep Exotics share this limit.

  • The lowest single stat you can get is 2 and the highest is 30 (two plugs made up of 1/1/15 distribution).

  • Pre-Shadowkeep exotics have a 46 minimum, 71 maximum base stat roll range, depending on the exotic.

  • A full set of 68 roll legendaries and a 71 roll exotic grants 275 stat points total, factoring in Masterwork, five stat mods and Powerful Friends/Radiant Light, you can hit a stat total of 425 (not including stasis fragment stat boosts). Keep in mind that this won't all translate nicely to stat tiers.


Sources for High Stat Gear

The following sources are places where I can 100% confirm that 68 roll armor can drop. Each source is linked with proof of a 68 roll piece from it.

Prime Engram drops can drop with spikey stats but I've never seen a 68, if you have one of these with a 68 roll then let me know and I'll add it to the post.
