Ovark.2514 Posted December 24, 2020 Share Posted December 24, 2020 The problems with holosmith are largely the unaddressed problems with core engi, not holosmith. The elite spec just happens to be the best 3rd trait line to use with those core abilities. Photon Forge grants insane burst damage forcing the opponent to go on the defensive. When, however, the holo is close to overheating or otherwise leaves forge, that should be when there should be an opportunity for the opponent to go on the offensive. The problem is, core engineer has incredibly potent defensive skills that easily bridge the forge gape despite having somewhat long~ish cooldowns. While Grenades are not very defensive on the face of it, one of the reasons they are so strong is that the engi can throw them behind them to cover their retreat. It's late and I haven't had time to think of a satisfactory solution; post yours please. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
