Warlock: Sunsinger subclass guide

Fill yourself with Solar Light, dramatically increasing the effectiveness of all your abilities.

The Sunsinger is a hell of a team player, and has one of the most unique abilities in the game, being the only class with the ability to return to life after being downed – taking out a knot of foes at the same time. Use your super liberally to buff your teammates, protect yourself against attack with powerful abilities, and cause persistent damage over time.

The Sunsinger’s upgrade trees are as follows:

  • Solar Grenade – A grenade that creates a flare of Solar Light which continually damages enemies trapped inside.
  • Firebolt Grenade – A grenade that unleashes bolts of Solar Light at nearby enemies.
  • Fusion Bolt – A grenade that causes bonus damage when attached to its target.
    Radiance (super)
    Fill yourself with Solar Light, dramatically increasing the effectiveness of all your abilities.
  • Song of Flame – While active, Radiance reduces all cooldowns for nearby allies.
  • Radiant Skin – While active, Radiance reduces incoming damage.
  • Fireborn – Radiance can now be activated from beyond the grave. Doing so returns you to life.
    Scorch (melee)
    A powerful melee attack that ignites enemies, causing damage over time.
  • Flame Shield – Killing enemies with Scorch reduces incoming damage for a short time.
  • Solar Wind – Hitting an enemy with Scorch knocks them back.
  • Brimstone – Killing enemies with Scorch causes them to explode.
  • Radiant Will – Increases the duration of Radiance.
  • Viking Funeral – Enemies you ignite burn longer and take more damage.
  • Sunburst – Killing an enemy with Scorch has a chance to generate Orbs of Light.
  • Touch of Flame – All grenades ignite enemies, causing damage over time.
  • Angel of Light – Aiming your weapon while in the air will hold you in place for a short time.
  • Gift of the Sun – Gain an additional grenade.
