Hello, fellow engi mains, are you loving your holo and would u like to be a little competitive or you just want to run an extremely strong holo build in general for all purposes, except maybe for raids. Then it is time to get that sword shield action going on ! You can see me performing with these builds in the video above.
Builds I used in the video:
My most used general build that does well against the majority of encounters, you can NEVER go wrong by playing this build (recommended):
Why Mortar kit ?
Mortar kit is extremely strong as well as extremely underestimated elite, Yes it will require more skill than elixir X or Laser, and it expands your potential even more. the fields from mortar kit are extremely significant in fights and you will also have access to multiple fields other than Waterfield, whilst your water fields are the most important, while you don't have them, you can trigger aoe chill, aoe weakness and many more things, by using one of your many combo finishers, and don't even get me started on the mortar 4 blinding field, this skill can single-handedly carry fights
**Why Iron blooded over elixir trait, especially since you run 2 elixirs? **
Both of those traits are very potent and will benefit you a lot. With this build, you will nearly always have well above 5 boons, which makes the iron blooded trait superior.
Condi Counter - With the current meta being very condi heavy this build is very potent, this is why I was able to beat the condi daredevil in the video so comfortably-
Power Counter - very recommended when fighting against a power burst heavy classes such as Spellbreakers or Heralds and even other holos-
Elixir holo - I used to play this before the elixir X nerf, it is still very strong and much easier to play than my main build
