Usage

Rotation example

See Engineer - DPS Condition for general tips and skill priority.

Photon Forge

In this rotation you want to use 50% of your heat per
cast. You should start encounters with 75% heat and enter photon forge almost immediately in your rotation, cast
and
before auto-attacking until you overheat and trigger
. After that, re-enter once your primary DPS skills are on cooldown and repeat
and
before auto-attacking until you reach 50% heat. Once you get to above 50% heat immediately
. Simply repeat this pattern of Holo-forge usage throughout the fight.
  • should be cast off-cooldown, but only when you're above 50% heat.
  • Don't be afraid to enter
    to use
    if needed.

One of the strongest condition damage classes at the moment. Provides heavy vulnerability, good CC, and a large number of unique conditions for Deadeyes in addition to strong personal DPS.
