The Final Shape

WARNING: The Final Shape brings a lot of changes to builds, Exotics, classes and subclasses. Therefore, many elements of this guide are subject to change. When the expansion goes live our team will test them extensively and update accordingly. Remember to use the "pin the post" feature to be notified of new updates then refresh your page and check the changelog at the bottom of the guide to learn more!

Pyrogale Gauntlets Solar Titan has quickly become one of the top choices for meta builds in endgame content. The subclass advantages of the healing with Restoration and weapon buffs with Radiant on top of improved super damage is huge for any activity. This can be used in any piece of content and is becoming a great option for boss damage in raids.

What are the Pyrogale Gauntlets though? These exotic arms turn your Burning Maul super into a one shot attack vs a roaming one. Adding 3 fire cyclones that continue to damage the target as well, this is a great way to Scorch targets and activate Ignition effects. Another addition is your Consecration aspect adds one fire cyclone as well. With this setup you can keep this going consistently in any content level.

Pros
  • Great enemy clear
  • High ability uptime
  • Multiple Weapon Options
  • Non-Stop Scorch and Ignitions
  • Consistent restoration and radiant buffs
Cons
  • Orbs of Power needed
  • Super won’t always be available
  • Must Scorch to get melee back fast

Gameplay Loop

Beginning with a Consecration slam can be all the work this build needs in some instances due to high ignitions and that fire cyclone. How do you get that back quickly though? Sunshotis great for this since it scorches enemies around defeated targets. This combined with Ember of Searing ensures your power melee returns quickly. Even just running around using your Throwing Hammer is an option since it instantly recharges and cures at the same time. Hands-On ensures you get your Super back fast with any of these options since most is coming from melee damage. Any boss is in trouble when faced with your super since it creates high ignitions and fire cyclones that continue to damage them. Add onto all of this, you can take advantage of sunspots as well that help spread scorch and apply restoration to you. This is a great way to keep up healing for yourself while also ensuring enemies are constantly falling.

This gameplay loop is the same even with the other weapon options since anything that helps apply Scorch continues to feed your consecration blast.

Ability Breakdown

Super

  • Burning Maul
    • Typically when summoning Burning Maul you would be able to switch between a spinning light attack and a heavy slam that creates sunspots at a distance. With the changes that Pyrogale Gauntlets add, this becomes a one shot slam that instantly ignites the target. In addition to this explosive slam, three fire cyclones spawn to scorch the target and nearby enemies.

Abilities

  • Rally Barricade, Create a small barrier that you can peek over while aiming down sights. Increases weapon reload speed, stability and range when you stand behind it.
  • Strafe Lift, Jump of your choice
  • Throwing Hammer, This is massive for this setup ensuring you'll get that super back fast while consistently activating Cure.
  • Healing Grenade, A grenade that cures allies on impact and creates an Orb of benevolent  Light, granting restoration to allies when picked up.

Aspects

  • Sol Invictus,  This is one of my favorite aspects for Titan for many reasons. First it constantly will heal you when running through the sunspots with Restoration. Also those sunspots will boost your energy when walking through them while Scorch targets around you.
  • Consecration, This has been a cool aspect since the Solar 3.0 launch since it creates a new avenue to use your melee besides just throwing hammer. The fact it also instantly will stun Champions: Unstoppable plus is boosted now from Pyrogale Gauntlets is very fun!

Fragments

  • Ember of Torches, This is great because you get the Radiant from either Consecration or just your powered melee.
  • Ember of Searing, Perfect to get that Consecration back fast from just scorching targets. Also those Firesprite are perfect for getting that healing grenade back fast.
  • Ember of Empyrean,  You should have Radiant and Restoration consistently active because of this.
  • Ember of Char, Your ignitions are already extremely high with this setup so getting free scorch to feed our melee is ideal.

Summary

If you want healing, high super damage, plenty of ignitions, and just fun mechanics Pyrogale Gauntlets Solar Titan is the build for you. This is the only setup that truly stands up to Stand Titan at this moment since it gives most of the same benefits in a different way. This build provides so many options of other weapons to use while keeping the same loop.
