Season of the Chosen in Destiny 2: Beyond Light brings with it a new Seasonal Artifact that has some powerful mods for Guardians to utilize during the season. The current Seasonal Artifact Mods will expire at the end of Season of the Chosen. However, some mods may return in future seasons of Destiny 2. Seasonal Mods have allowed Bungie to direct Guardians to use certain weapons for their builds to change the meta of the game in unique ways.
Most Guardians will be familiar with the Anti-Barrier, Overload, and Unstoppable Mods found in the Seasonal Artifact. Some mods, however, are brand new and have already been displaying their immense power in various builds. The Seasonal Mods, such as Glacial Inheritance, Volatile Conduction, Sundering Glare, and Focusing Lens, are proving to be extraordinarily strong when used in endgame-level content.
Glacial Inheritance in Destiny 2 is a Class Item Mod costing 6 Energy to use. Glacial Inheritance will refund Super Energy for defeating targets with a Stasis Super. Since Glacial Inheritance is focused on targets and non-combatants, this means it will work in PvP as well as PvE.
Glacial Inheritance is easy to use as long as the Guardian’s Stasis Super gets the final blow. If a target is defeated with something other than the Stasis Super, Glacial Inheritance will not refund Super Energy. For example: If a Hunter throws out their Stasis Super, and other Fireteam members kill the targets before the Stasis Super, the Hunter will not be refunded Super Energy, even if the target was affected by the Super.
Glacial Inheritance refunds Super Energy after the Super is over, it will not extend the Super timer as the Super is active. The Hunter Revenant Super has the ability to uniquely pair Glacial Inheritance with the Charged with Light mod, Energy Converter, and the Whisper of Bonds Stasis Fragment.
Since the Revenant Super is not a roaming Super, Guardians can throw their Super and immediately throw their grenade to convert any stacks of Charged with Light into Super Energy from Energy Converter. Whisper of Bonds will continue to grant Super Energy as the Revenant Super freezes and defeats targets. When the Revenant Super is over, it will then grant a burst of Super Energy from the Glacial Inheritance mod.
Volatile Conduction is a Class Item Mod that grants bonus Arc Super damage if cast when critically wounded, and lasts until the end of the Super Activation. Volatile Conduction costs 6 Energy to use. While this mod is similar to previous Seasonal Mods, it is gaining more attention this season due to the new Titan Exotic Chest Armor, Cuirass of the Falling Star.
Volatile Conduction gives a 30 percent buff to Arc Super Damage. While this damage buff is nice for any Arc Super, it also stacks with the damage buff from Cuirass of the Falling Star. Combining Volatile Conduction with the Cuirass of the Falling Star makes for a much more potent Thundercrash Super from Titans, who love to live out their Superman dreams in Destiny 2.
