Atmaweapon.7345 Posted January 10, 2018 Share Posted January 10, 2018 Currently, the best choice is PBM which is kind of awkward. PBM turns heat management completely on its head and instead of being something you skillfully manage (and are severely punished for screwing up), it turns it into rather static rotation where you fit 2x Photon Blitz/Corona Burst before exploding and making your effective health slightly better than low health professions.The main drawback to the other two traits is that the Laser's Edge trait flat out does not work outside of Photon Forge whereas PBM overheat does make it work. If that limitation was removed, these two would become much more viable.The end result to the three being equivalent would be:Thermal Vent: Crazy hard Heat management that requires you to use dodge rolls to not only maximize heat, but offensively into enemies. Uses the Tools traitline.Enhanced Capacity Storage Unit: More forgiving on Heat thresholds with a complex heat strategy required to maintain double heat bonuses for Sword and maximum punishment for failure.Photonic Blasting Module: Simplified Heat management with the drawback of taking (self-healed) damage that effectively makes you a low health profession.Most of this would be accomplished, of course, by simply removing the Photon Forge requirement from Laser's Edge, effectively increasing the non-PF damage of the other two traits by 15%.Laser's Edge would read:While photon forge is active and you are above the Heat Threshold, your outgoing damage is increased Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
