Holosmith Gearing Preparation?
I’d like to know too, I have a full Viper set and I wanna keep using it with Holosmith
So from this most recent stress test I have to say full zerker felt really good. But no DPS meter/test golem so I have no real comparison to draw.
For PvE Condi: Likely can stick to Pistol/Pistol Vipers, Photon Forge will basically just remove the need for a kit (or be used during cool downs).
For PvE Power: Sword/Pistol, Zerkers
Bleh, it’s hard to tell. Holo doesn’t look ideal for either pure condi or pure power, so maybe the new Grieving stats could be good?
There’s really not much condi on the holo-specific stuff, such as the sword mainhand and the heat mechanics will likely favor attacking with a sword to generate heat instead of using kits, which are the main source of condis.
However, a pure damage build will probably end up going Firearms, regardless of stats since Inventions, Alchemy, and Tools don’t contribute much to damage for any stat type.
From PvE perspective:
Viper’s is really good, almost ideal. The only thing that may be better is if Power and Expertise were swapped. +++Condi, +++Expertise, +Precision, +Power. So if that prefix is introduced in PoF I will say that might be the new condi meta.
For power Grieving looks good… but it would be better if Prec or Fero were major instead of Condi. Berserker may still be king. If Destroyer was a PvE prefix I would vote for that, but until then I’m leaning toward Berserker but wouldn’t be surprised if Grieving became meta.
