Holosmith basics

  • Holosmith grants access to the Photon Forge (sometimes referred to as holo mode) and introduces a new resource: heat. Heat is generated passively while the forge is active, or by activating forge skills. Higher CD skills generally generate more heat.
  • Reaching maximum heat (100) should be avoided as Overheat Overheating damages you and locks you out of the forge until heat goes back to 0. The best tool for heat management is dodge rolling, which vents 15 heat per roll via Thermal Release Valve.png Thermal Release Valve and does some moderate AoE damage.
  • Engage Photon Forge.png Engage Photon Forge is used to activate the forge, after which your weapon skills will be replaced by 5 new ones. You can't exit the forge for at least 5 seconds, so be careful about reentering with high heat levels.
    • Both Engage Photon Forge and Disengage Photon Forge count as toolbelt skills and will work with related traits. Both skills can proc weapon swap sigils too.


Med Kit/Elixir Gun

Photon Forge

  • Holo Leap.png Holo Leap will be used to constantly provide AoE Superspeed Superspeed due to 24px Crystal Configuration: Zephyr. Position yourself properly to maximize the number of allies that will cross it but don't build too much heat (manage with dodges accordingly). Keep in mind that this is a Leap Finisher, so always try to combo it with either a Light Field for Light Aura Light Aura or a Water Field for healing.
  • Holographic Shockwave.png Holographic Shockwave is an excellent AoE CC and also a Blast Finisher. You can also fake cast it by stowing your weapon right after activation in order to bait enemy dodges.
  • Hard Light Arena.png Hard Light Arena is a light field that provides Protection Protection, Regeneration Regeneration and Fury Fury to allies inside it. Try to cast it above the heat threshold so you have access to a larger combo field and longer boons duration.
  • 24px Prismatic Singularity is a strong CC and should be used above the heat threshold to affect a wider area.



  • Extreme condition pressure
  • High spike damage
