[Top 7] Best Armor Sets in Destiny 2 and How to Get Them (2023)

With a wide variety of plate, tunic, and cape armor to choose from, which armor set should you choose for your Titan, Warlock, or Hunter? We've curated the armor collection to bring you our top 7 armor sets and how to attach them yourself.

In Destiny 2, armor pieces randomly come with different elements (Solar, Arc, Void) as well as stats like Strength, Stamina, Recovery, Discipline, Intellect, and Mobility. To top it off, there are also a handful of mod slots to add that extra edge to your armor. Because of this, even two pieces of the same type of armor can be different.

The list:

Since there are many factors and benefits that go into each piece of armor set, it all depends on how you want it to look and whether the armor you find will give you the properties you want. So let's list the armors we think look the best and their intrinsic/combo healing buffs that come with each set.

We will list 2 armor sets for each class and a final set for all classes at the end.

Our 2 main Warlock armor sets

1. Exodus-Down-Set

The Exodus Down set is on this list because it really harkens back to the classic look of Warlock in the first Destiny game. To make you look like a real space wizard without a lot of extra frills. Since it is restorative armor, it will help increase your character's healing rate. This also applies to the Healing Rift skill, making it more effective.
