When deciding upon armor we will take into consideration invisibility effectiveness. The reason for this is that when you are invisible it means you can sneak behind enemies to revive other guardians — or get a kill before enemies notice you. Make sure that you have high Resilience; then a balance of Mobility, Strength, and Recovery across your armor by use of Armor Mods.

  • Graviton Forfeit — This particular exotic helmet will improve your invisibility. It will be of major benefit to you for the strategies mentioned above. Furthermore, this is still extremely useful in The Crucible.
  • Unyielding Favor Set — For all your other armor slots use the new Season of Defiance armor set which will create Awoken Favors (Dropped consumables to increase stats) in much fewer final blows. The excellent thing is that these all will stack for you. Meaning that you can increase build stats even more during gameplay.

As for your Nightstalker Super, we would recommend the Spectral Blades. They will prove perfect for when needing to clear a swarm of enemies speedily. This will be what you will be doing the most during many missions. If you are planning on taking on a Raid then you may find that Shadowshot: Deadfall is more useful for your super ability as it will allow you to perform high damage on bosses quicker.
