Very solid and much fun to play. Not for beginners cuz of holo mechanic (and combo field/finisher too). Curently im testing more tanky version with marauder/demolisher amu and rune of resistance vs condi comp and it still has high dmg. This build is good as teamfighter, duelist and roamer (cuz of perma swiftness, sword 3, and superspeed toolbelt skill). Mortar elite skill will let u control field from distance or even in full contact. Shield skills are perfect to reflect projectiles or blocking (both are instant)... And to push off all foes around.

There is much more mechanics (like blinding) making this build rly strong and effective if u know well how to play holo.

I rly recommand this build rn.
