Destiny 2’s new Vow of the Disciple raid is out of contest mode and extremely farmable for all. It also happens to contain some of the best raid loot I’ve ever seen come out of Destiny, and that is not an exaggeration. As such, I would make sure to get in there and start hunting for god roll drops, or crafting patterns to make your own custom versions.
Here are my picks as to what you’re looking for:
Deliverance God Roll (Stasis Fusion Rifle)
Cornered/Surrounded or Successful Warm-Up – At long, long, long last, we have a legendary fusion rifle in the kinetic slot, which by itself is gamechanging. These perk combos here have a lot of synergy and it depends whether you want more charge speed or damage.
Perpetual Motion/Adrenaline Junkie, Harmony or Chill Clip – As ever, Perpetual is a great perk on anything. I like Harmony on Fusion Rifles for huge damage boosts. Chill Clip would be your pick if you’ve got a stasis build going that the perk could synergize with, as one of only two stasis weapon perks in the game right now (Headstone is the other). Adrenaline is just the perfect perk of the meta moment on more or less anything.
Steady Hands/Bait and Switch – I got this as my first roll which may not be the best one, but these two perks have a lot of synergy since you’re swapping across all weapons, and I’ve found it to be a lot of fun all the same. Don’t discount Steady Hands, it’s like a mini Dragon’s Shadow as a perk.
Submission God Roll (Kinetic SMG)
Subsistence/Frenzy or Swashbuckler – Since the Subsistence buff on SMGs, this is always a solid pick. Swash is also good in the current ability meta, and this cannot roll Adrenaline Junkie.
Overflow or Perpetual/Frenzy or Swashbuckler – If you’d rather have a different perk in the first slot, I’d recommend either of those. You could also theoretically consider Harmony for damage, depend on your playstyle.
Lubrae’s Ruin God Roll (Solar Glaive)
Graverobber/Swashbuckler – These normally have synergy by themselves, but on a glive? Yeah, pretty fantastic. My biggest problem with Lubrae’s is that it doesn’t have Impulse Amplifier though, which I almost consider mandatory.
Immovable Object/Unstoppable Force – These two have built-in synergy (I mean just look at the names) and I believe only Lubrae’s has Immovable as a special perk, which no other glaive does. But if you ask me, glaives are more for whacking than shooting, especially without the speed boost of Impulse Amplifier.
Graverobber/Vorpal – Graverobber can pair with anything, really, but you should take advantage of Lubrae’s being able to roll Vorpal, which the story glaive cannot.
Forbearance God Roll (Arc Breach Grenade Launcher)
Anything But Especially Ambitious Assassin/Chain Reaction – Look, I’m sorry but it’s going to be Chain Reaction or bust on this thing, which makes it literally Power Creep: The Gun. It’s a better version of Salvager’s Salvo, the only other Breach GL with Chain Reaction, but it’s a wave frame, which makes it much easier to trigger. Ambitious will give you two in the chamber, but really any perk will work, and I love my Surplus roll. One of the best special weapons in the game right now for sure.
Insidious God Roll (Arc Pulse Rifle)
Dragonfly/One For All – Well now there’s a fun little combo for damage activation.
Rapid Hit/Adrenaline Junkie or Rampage – Rapid Hit and Rampage feels like the return of Blast Furnace, but with the current ability meta, Adrenaline Junkie is a must-have on most guns, and may be the better pick.
Stats for All/One for All – Will never not recommend this combo on primers when it’s available.
Cataclysmic God Roll (Solar Linear Fusion Rifle)
Fourth Time/Clown Cartridge or Focused Fury – This is a solid DPS option that has both a classic and new perk option, depending on how you want to play it.
Fourth Time/Bait and Switch – Bait and Switch is a new perk that can roll on a lot of raid weapons here, but is probably only worth it for Cataclysmic, given that when activated, you can outdamage Sleeper Simulant, and it works well with Witherhoard spam builds for boss DPS.
Those are my picks, feel free to add your own.
