Icefall Mantle are Titan gauntlets that instantly turn you into a tank in Destiny 2. Today I’m going to run through how to get Icefall Mantle, plus put together a Titan build which is going to help you tear through enemies whether you are in PvE or PvP.
Icefall Mantle are Exotic Titan Gauntlets with the perk Glacial Guard – Replaces your Barricade ability with a personal over shield. When you activate your Barricade, you create a burst around yourself that slows combatants. While you have the over shield, you are slowed and Barricade does not recharge.
Bungie did also mention a small buff in Season of the Lost (next season)
Icefall Mantle – Removed the slower class ability recharge scalar.
How to get Icefall Mantle
Icefall Mantle is one of the newer Exotic pieces of armour introduced in the Beyond Light update (specifically Season 12). Previous to Beyond Light and these newer armour pieces being introduced, Exotic armour was acquired at random through Exotic engrams or campaign story content.
Now, there’s a way to target farm Exotic armour pieces through Legend and Master Lost Sectors. If you complete these activities solo, then there’s a chance at the Exotic armour to drop for you. Every day the Legend (1310) and Master (1340) Lost Sectors rotate, with two available each day across Europa, Cosmodrome, Moon, and Tangled Shore.
As well as the location for Legend and Master Lost Sectors rotating, the rewards rotate too with different armor pieces for the head, arms, chest, and legs. If you want to check the location and the rewards, then you can do so in-game by completing the Lost Sectors on the regular difficulty, and then check on the map. The Legend and Master Lost sectors are indicated as a blue shield icon. Another good way to check is a great tool called todayindestiny.com. This will quickly tell you what the location is, plus what the reward is.
To get Icefall Mantle, you want to look out for the Exotic Arms Reward. Then if you complete the Legend of Master Lost Sector Solo, you’ll have a chance for that reward. If you don’t get it the first time, keep trying and you’ll get it after a few tries.
Icefall Mantle Titan PVE build
Exotic Armour – Icefall Mantle
This guide is focused around the Exotic gauntlets for a Titan.
For this build, I’m going to be using Code of the Devastator, which is a middle-tree Sunbreaker. This is getting a huge buff next season focused on the throwing hammer melee ability. More on that in a minute.
Throwing Hammer – Throw a hammer from a distance. After throwing it, picking up the hammer fully recharges your melee ability.
Roaring Flames – Kills with your solar abilities increase those abilities’ damage. Stacks up to three times.
Tireless Warrior – After hitting an enemy with your Throwing Hammer, picking up the hammer triggers your health regeneration.
Burning Maul Summon a flaming maul and crush enemies with the force of an earthquake.
Replaces Hammer of Sol as subclass Super.
Roaring Flames is great, but we’re interested in the throwing hammer, given the buffs coming in season 15. Bungie improvements to Middle Tree Sunbreaker
We are extending the throwing hammer lifespan to allow Titans more time to finish an engagement and still pick up their hammer before it vanishes. We also felt it could deal more damage against orange- and yellow-bar enemies. Also, the new charged melee action allows you to throw your hammer point-blank at an enemy, which is pretty badass.
In summary with the weapons I’m using Solar weapons to go with the subclass choice, which is going to work well with the elemental well mods, this is going to help get my super back as much as possible.
Kinetic – Travelers Chosen
Traveler’s Chosen Exotic Kinetic Sidearm. This is a 300 RPM sidearm with 15 in the magazine and it has an excellent range. Let’s check out the perks on the weapon.
Gathering Light – Final blows with this weapon grant stacks of Gathering Light. Consume stacks, granting melee, grenade, and class ability energy based on the number of stacks.
Gift of the Traveler – Each stack of Gathering Light improves this weapon reloads, handling, and target acquisition.
We’re going to be using this to get our overshield back as often as possible as per Icefall Mantle. Travellers Chosen lets us stack Gathering Light on Kills, then we can use this to replenish all our abilities. This is one of the most powerful exotics in the game, and if you want to spam abilities, then this is a great weapon. You can get it from the Exotic Kiosk in the Tower.
Energy – Seventh Seraph CQC
Seventh Seraph CQC is a great shotgun, deadly in PVP and useful in PVE with its Warmind Cells and decent roll combinations. Today I am going to have a look at the weapon stats, some of the good rolls to look out for and the all-important how to get the weapon. The following is how to get Seventh Seraph CQC in Destiny 2.
Seventh Seraph CQC is a Legendary Energy Shotgun which is a Lightweight Frame meaning it has Superb handling. Move faster with this weapon equipped. For PVP Quickdraw and Snapshot Sights is a good roll, and PVE Slideshot and Vorpal Weapon would be one to look out for. The most popular roll out there with the community right now is Quickdraw and Snapshot Sights. Seventh Seraph CQC is also up there amongst the most popular weapons for competitive PVP right now sitting at number 4 only below Felwinter’s Lie, The Steady Hand and Adored.
To get this weapon it’s a random drop from various activities like strikes, crucible and gambit as well as world activities like Patrols, Public events and engrams. This does mean there’s no 100% way to farm this weapon, you just have to have a little bit of luck.
Power – Falling Guillotine
Falling Guillotine is a legendary sword that sits in the power weapon slot and deals void damage. It comes with Vortex Frame where you can launch a heavy spin attack and heavy attacks are stronger with full energy and attacks partially bypass elemental shields.
For PVE you’ll want to be looking for something like Relentless Strikes for landing three light attacks within a short time grants sword ammo and Whirlwind Blade. Relentless and Whirlwind is a pretty good combo for all swords, but this one especially when you’re dealing the big damage with the heavy spin attack.
Taking Charge – Picking up orbs gets you Charged with Light
Lucent Blade – Increased sword damage when Charged with Light
Protective Light – While charged with light you gain significant damage resistance against combatants when your shields are destroyed. Consumes all stacks of charged with light.
Global Reach – Warmind Cells you create affect and damage targets ast a greater distance
Burning Cells – Creates a burst of solar energy when you destroy a warmind cell
