High-stat armors are those that have a combined value of 60 or higher. Any armor that drops with a total of 60+ values is a high stats armor. Although some of the exotics armor can reach up to 70 total value, they are extremely rare and really hard to obtain.

There is a total of six stats available in any armor, and these stats combined is the total value of any armor. The total stat can be anywhere from 48 to 70, and each stat will have random points. Any 60+ total value armor is considered high stat armor throughout the Destiny 2 community.

The Six Stats available in any armors are:

With the launch of the witch queen, we saw some of the best armor sources for high-stat armor removed from the game, including the expanded missions and also focusing umbral engrams for the season of the lost, season of the spicer, and season of the chosen over in the helm.

That being said, alongside the launch of the witch queen, we have seen new sources added to the game for the high stats armor. There are some methods that you can complete solo, while other needs the full fireteam team to complete them. Additionally, while some of these methods are instant, others might take hours to complete.

The sources/ methods are as follows:

  1. Dungeon Farming
  2. Weekly Milestones
  3. Raids
  4. Focusing on Engrams
  5. Legend Dares of Eternity
  6. Weekly Campaign Mission
  7. Master Wellspring
  8. Heroic Empire Hunts
  9. Trials of Osiris
  10. Master Lost Sectors

There are roughly ten methods to farm High stats gears. All of these are mostly end-game content, and some of them require DLCs to access them. However, some Ghost shell mods can greatly help you with high-stat armor farming while saving a lot of time in the process.

Best Ways to Obtain High Stat Armor

There are a ton of ways to get high stat armor, but focusing on umbral engram is by far the easiest. At the helm, you can focus umbral engrams at the war table. If you have the armor decoding clearance upgrade, you can focus on armor that’s always mid to high 60s.

On top of that, you can use a ghost mod to ensure you get a high roll in your preferred stat. All you need for this is an umbral engram and 4 risen umbral energy, which drops from Psiops battlegrounds, and if you have umbral energy requisition, they’ll also drop from strikes crucible gambit dungeons and raids. Basically, every content in the game, so you shouldn’t have a hard time stocking up on them.

Best High Stat Armor to Focus on for PvE & PvP

Armor stats really depends on your purpose only. If you love PvP, then you should be more focused on PvP stats like Mobility and Discipline, But If you want something for PvE, then you should focus on resilience and intellect. However, your armor’s stats also depend on your character and loadout.

If you are a hunter main, you should be more focused on mobility stats for better movement and class abilities. However, hunters can also choose Resilience, Recovery, and discipline as their first priority. As for the secondary stats, you can select any of the rest for a potent hunter build.

We recommend using Recovery as the main armor stats for warlock mains with Mobility and Resilience as their secondary stats. This is because warlocks are more versatile than the hunters; If they have a decent recovery with a bit of resilience, they can shine in any situation.

Lastly, we recommend using resilience as the main stat with some mobility and strength as the secondary stat for Titan mains. Titans are popular for their hammer-throwing ability, and if you have good strength on your armor, then the melee ability cooldown will be reduced, and you will be able to throw your melee more often.

These are the best High stat armor farming location currently available in the game. You can choose any High stat armor depending on your preference. You are good to go if you enjoy the armor perks, and it works well with your playstyle. We hope this guide was helpful and you have learned something new. Good luck out there, Guardians.
