Suraci.1642 Posted August 26, 2019 Share Posted August 26, 2019 All skills of holosmith in photon forge are absolute blast to use, they have decent aoe, holo is pretty much like a reaper melee frontline fighter but why the elite sword weapon skills are so counterintuitive to use? The worst of all is Refraction Cutter (Strike at foes in front of you and launch a blade of light at your target. Launch extra blades based on your heat level. Each blade inflicts conditions), I dont know is this skill supposed to be a range pressure skill or a melee damaging skill? cause it failed at both MISERABLY, the bleeding condi on this skill is not that impressive even on 5 projectiles max heat level on condi build, the projectiles spread out like a fan shape that often times would miss the target when they are 400 range away, if lucky you could hit a target with 2 projectiles, so if I want to hit all 5 projectiles at once I have to shove my face inside of an enemy hitbox but guess what the aoe on this skill is so abysmally small in fact so small that I thought it was a targeting single target skill and the enemy can just very slightly step to the side this skill would completely miss at pointblank.Next one is Radiant Arc (Leap to your target and create an arc of light that strikes nearby foes. Gain quickness based on your heat level): slow and clunky to use, I think gravedigger would actually be faster than this for a skill that grants quickness and you actually leap like an obese turtle with weights attached to your legsFinal one the auto attack chain Sun Edge-Sun Ripper-Gleam Saber : ¾ cast time on Gleam Saber is just unnecessary for a skill that doesnt have much of an impact unlike evade on ranger gs or chill foes on reaper gs.Sword holo rework suggestions:Refraction Cutter: strike all foes around you(180 range) and shoot beams of light that bounce between targets ( like mirage Split Surge ) , extra beams based on heat level.Radiant Arc: speed up the animation, remove the quickness this skill grants, when over 100% heat, Radiant Arc is replaced by Blinding Dash: teleport to the target and strike them inflicts blindness and immobile.Sun Edge-Sun Ripper-Gleam Saber: ½ cast time on each chain, Gleam Saber grants quickness, extra quickness when above heat threshold, gain 50 extra range for auto attack chain when above heat threshold.
