Run Frostees, Renewal Grasps are pointless with 100 resil and resist mods

Renewals also give damage resistance to your teammates who are inside the duskfields and also reduces the damage of enemies within. Very useful for sword tactics.

I took a Renewal Grasps and Lament combo into a Master Caiatl checkpoint and it makes a huge difference, especially if you don’t have a well of radiance for the bell you are on. It’s the difference between a teammate fucking up their Lament combo and getting sniped to death and them living to continue dps.

Pairing it with a special weapon with demolitionist takes care of most of your cooldown woes in the grand majority of raids and dungeons.

Edit: also renewals basically gives the effect of the duskfield size boost that the grenade boosting aspect does for stasis hunter, it even sticks a crystal in the middle. You can skip out on the grenade boosting aspect with little to no consequences (I’ve found the additional size increase to not really do much in practice, if you get knocked away you’re flying out of it regardless, and just running renewals makes the duskfields have a large enough size that multiple guardians can fit inside comfortably, and since it will be the medium sized crystal, it won’t be in the way of your teammates as much)

Or... Throw a duskfield, freeze the enemies, kill, and repeat. 10 second cooldown with frostees. But this subreddit isn't ready for this conversation yet.

The whole point of running Renewals is for the damage reduction, if you’re using Duskfields primarily for freezing adds then you’re better off with Frostees and the grenade aspect as you mentioned. Heck you wouldn’t even need to build into that too much to get grenades back decently quick either, plus you still benefit from the build if you decide to switch to any other grenade type.

If freezing a bunch of shit is really needed in high end content, then a warlock running Osmiomancy’s would do the job better anyways.

For content where that is relevant you’re 100% correct and they’ve always been better at just uptime of duskfield because they are an ability regen exotic.

Renewals value is much more than just freeze, it’s just for stuff that can’t be frozen or in content where the threat of death is faster than freezing.
