A Shadebinder Warlock
"Reality is chaotic and unruly; bind it and bring order."

Shadebinder is a Stasis-based Warlock subclass. It was released in the Beyond Light expansion of Destiny 2.



  • Winter's Wrath - Summon a powerful Stasis staff. While your super is active:
    • Fires Stasis projectiles that freeze targets upon impact.
      • Unleash a powerful shockwave that shatters nearby frozen targets.


  • Glacier Grenade – A grenade that creates walls out of Stasis shards to block damage and freeze targets; these walls can be shattered for damage.
  • Duskfield Grenade – A grenade that shatters on impact, leaving behind a field that slows targets and freezes those who do not leave the volume.
  • Coldsnap Grenade – A grenade that freezes on impact and sends another seeker to find and freeze targets.


  • Penumbral Blast - Fires Stasis energy from your staff and freeze opponents in their tracks.


  • Balanced Glide — Glide jump ability provides bonuses to both speed and control.
  • Burst Glide — Upgrades Glide for strong speed boosts.
  • Controlled Glide — Glide jump ability provides better directional control while in the air.

  • Bleak Watcher - Consume your grenade to deploy a stationary Stasis turret that autonomously attacks enemy combatants.


I first heard it in the Thrall-carved tunnels on Callisto as I saw Light torn from my friend: a chaotic chime like breaking glass, ringing in the corners of my mind. I ignored it then and burned the Hive vermin with vengeance and fire.

But it returned when Ghaul's wicked contraption gripped the Traveler and the Light fled from my bones: a cold chorus in my ears, a shattered song demanding to be heard. I clung to it then, shivering in the rubble of the Last City. It drowned out the marching of Centurions and focused my will to survive.

It was in the shadow of the Pyramid on Europa that I finally understood. What was noise became a chilling harmony born of dissonance, a structure I could finally grasp. I joined the song, and as my voice perfected the chord my hands gripped a staff of ice—chaos given shape. It sealed my hands in rime, and the song resonated through my flesh. I was its instrument, and it was mine; when we sang "be still" to the world, it would obey.
