Crown Splitter is a devastating power sword for Titans which has some of the best DPS in Season of the Splicer. Today I am going to look at Crown Splitter’s stats, the best rolls for PVE plus how to get the weapon. I’ll also be putting together a build for Crown splitter for endgame PvE content.
Crown Splitter is a Legendary Titan Power Sword that has an Aggressive Frame where you can launch a heavy slam attack. Heavy attacks are stronger with full energy. Looking at the stats we have Swing Speed 10, Impact 72, Range 60, Efficiency 10, Defense 50, Charge Rate 30, Ammo Capacity 48.
For PVE Jagged Edge, Heavy Guard, Relentless Strikes, and Vorpal Weapon would be very good. Jagged Edge increases the damage output whereas Heavy Guard bolsters your defenses. Relentless Strikes grants sword ammo with three light attacks and Vorpal Weapon increases damage against bosses.
How to get Crown Splitter
Crown Splitter is part of the world pool in Season of the Splicer. You do have to be one of your Titan class to get this to drop, given it’s a class-specific weapon. This can drop from Strikes, Crucible, Gambit, and at the end of Nightfalls. Plus leveling up at the Gunsmith. It drops pretty much anywhere, but it is down to RNG.
How to make Crown Splitter even better!
Lucent Blade is a Charged with Light mod, which increases the damage of your sword when you are Charged with Light. You can use something like Taking Charge to get Charged with Light. The description for Lucent Blade reads:
“While Charged with Light, dealing damage with a Sword gives you bonus Sword damage for 5 seconds, consuming one stack of Charged with Light.”
When Charged with Light you’ll get a 15% increase in damage for the sword, meaning those heavy attacks will easily take out Champions and bosses, especially if you have Vorpal Weapon on there too.
Next, let’s have a look at a decent Titan build using Crown Splitter.
Crown Splitter & Stronghold Titan Build
I’ll be using a void theme for the build, this is going to run through the subclass, weapons and also Elemental Well Mods. I’ll be using Crown Splitter paired with Stronghold, the exotic Titan gloves.
For this build I’ll be using Code of the Protector, which is top-tree void Titan.
Defensive Strike — Defeat an enemy with this melee ability to create an overshield around you and nearby allies. Final blows grant melee energy when this overshield is active.
Rallying Force — Melee kills restore health for you and nearby allies.
Turn the Tide — Your overshield from Defensive Strike lasts longer and increases melee damage and reload speed.
Ward of Dawn — When Super energy is full, create an indestructible dome to protect you and your allies. Passing through Ward of Dawn grants you and your allies a temporary increase to weapon damage.
The Ward of Dawn comes in useful here when you get in a tight spot, and need a bubble. Defensive Strike is also good for the overshield generation.
Stronghold – This is a great Exotic for Titan’s if you like using swords.
Clenched Fist – Maximizes Guard stats on equipped Swords. Shots blocked immediately after guarding will heal you.
This is great as it means you can essentially have unlimited guard when you wear these titan gloves. This provides protection to you, your teammates allowing you to run around slicing and chopping your enemies at will.
It’s pretty tough to pick between the 2. The benefits that Stronghold gives with the defensive options is great, but the ability regen is very with Heart of Inmost Light too. Best thing to do is try both out and see what works for you.
If you are running Hunter or Warlock then Orpheus Rig for the Hunter or Nezarec’s Sin would work well for replacement Exotic armour.
Kinetic – Witherhoard
This one comes with Primevals Torment – Projectiles fired by this weapon light the target or nearby area on impact. It also comes with Break the Bank – Blighted Targets take more damage over time and blight the nearby area on death.
This is going to be useful with Unstoppable Grenade Launcher mod found on the season pass. The damage over time is great for clearing out smaller enemies, plus you get a good amount of DPS for a direct hit with Witherhoard.
Energy – Gnawing Hunger
I’m using Gnawing Hunger for the Energy Weapon. This is a void weapon and I also have a roll with Rampage on it, which comes in handy for the extra damage.
Power – Crown Splitter
This is a very powerful sword that has returned to us in Season of the Splicer. This is a class specific sword, plus I have a roll with Vorpal Weapon, meaning big damage against bosses. Pair this with Lucent Blade, the Charged with Light mod, plus taking charge and Elemental Charge. Once Charged with Light is active you’ll get a 15% damage buff to your swords, which is going to come in handy taking out enemies and champions in the nightfall.
Elemental Charge (2 Energy) – Become Charged with Light by picking up an elemental well. If the elemental well’s element type matches your subclass element, you gain 2 stacks of Charged with Light.
Elemental Ordnance (3 Energy) – Defeating a combatant with a grenade spawns an elemental well that matches your subclass energy type.
Font of Wisdom (4 Energy) – Picking up an elemental well that matches your subclass energy type grants you a temporary significant increase in your Intellect, improving the recharge rate of your Super. This gives you a +50 intellect boost for 30 secs, so this one is going to boost your super regeneration significantly.
Lucent Blade – While Charged with Light, dealing damage with a Sword gives you bonus Sword damage for 5 seconds, consuming one stack of Charged with Light.
Sword Reserves – Increases the amount of sword ammo you can carry.
Breach and clear – When using a greande launcher, damaging a boss, damaging a champion or breaking a combatants shields reloads your stowed weapons and causes the combatant to take increased damage for a short duration. (Seasonal artifact)
