The Dawnblade is the Sunsinger’s replacement for the Warlock in Destiny 2. Find out all about it here.
Destiny 2 will bring new subclasses to the Titan, Hunter, and Warlock classes we know from the first game. These are the Sentinel, Arcstrider, and Dawnblade respectively.
The build of the game everyone got to play at Destiny 2’s reveal event did show off the Warlock’s new Dawnblade subclass. Dawnblade will be the new Solar subclass, replacing the Sunsinger.
In his video below, Arekkz shows off the full skill tree for the Dawnblade, as well as the new Super move. The skill names and descriptions have changed somewhat since reveal, and the text guide below the video is current as of the Destiny 2 beta in July 2017.
