Stasis has fallen behind the Light subclasses in Destiny 2 and Bungie are aiming to fix this in the next season.

Season 19 of Destiny 2 is set to start on December 6, 2022, which is why Bungie is already announcing a pile of balancing changes for pretty much all classes you can think of.

Since its oppressive debut in Beyond Light, Stasis has been nerfed repeatedly and it eventually became less prominent in the latter half of the Witch Queen era, which is why the devs are going to buff it next season.

Thankfully, they seem to be wary of Stasis' power back in the heyday and will not be buffing it too much.

General Stasis buffs for all classes include:

  • Increased movement speed penalty while Slowed by 10 per cent
  • Improved tracking for Coldsnap Grenade
  • Duskfield Grenade applies Slow stacks 13 per cent faster

Class-based buffs planned for Season 19 are:

  • Revenant Hunters will get an additional Fragment slot when using Winter's Shroud Aspect
  • Behemoth Titans get an additional Fragment slot when using Cryoclasm Aspect
  • Shadebiner is getting Glacial Harvest buffs through reduced cooldown per six shards, which is now 10 seconds instead of 15
    • Whisper of Rending now works with all primary ammo weapons, not just the kinetic ones

Overall, the buffs should help Stasis out in both PvE and PvP but doesn't seem to be on track to being the oppressive PvP monster it was at launch where a single Slow offered a massive advantage. We don't even talk about the severity of the freeze effects.
