H = Healing; U = Utility; E = Elite; T = Tool Belt Skill

  • Coolant Blast [H]: Heal yourself and chill nearby foes. If you are above the heat threshold when this skill is activated, gain Frost Aura and continue healing for a duration.

    • Cauterize [H-T]: Use a laser to burn off conditions and set yourself on fire for each condition removed. Removes additional conditions of above the heat threshold.
  • Spectrum Shield [U]: Break stun effects and create a holographic shell that reduces incoming damage. This skill recharges faster while above the heat threshold.

    • Flash Spark [U-T]: Release a blinding burst of light from your holographic emitter. While above the heat threshold, gain light aura.
  • Hard Light Arena [U]: Create a holographic arena that grants you boon while inside of it. When activated above the heat threshold, the radius and duration are increased.
    • Prismatic Singularity [U-T]: Collapse a ring of holograms to pull foes into a single point. The ring explodes when it fully collapses. Radius and pull distance increased while above the heat threshold.
  • Laser Disk [U]: Create rotating Laser blades to damage nearby foes. This skill has increased duration when activated above the heat threshold.
    • Blade Burst [U-T]: Fire holographic blades at foes within range. Damage increased while over the heat threshold.
  • Photon Wall [U]: A defensive barrier appears in front of you that blocks you and your allies from incoming attacks. Reactivate Exceed to fire the barrier at foes as an attack. This skill grants projectile reflection if you are above the heat threshold.

    • Launch Wall [U-T]: Launch your photon wall forward, causing the wall to explode when it strikes a foe, inflicting conditions on nearby enemies. When fired above the heat threshold, launch additional walls.
  • Prime Light Beam [E]: Charge up and fire an explosive beam of light in front of you. When activated above the heat threshold, this attack leaves behind a burning holographic field.
    • Engage Photon Forge [E-T]: Activate your Photon Forge, gaining access to new skills. Generate heat while Photon Forge is active. Take damage if you overheat. Disables use of kits for a short duration.

      • Deactivate Photon Forge [E-T]: Cancel Photon Forge and begin cooling after a delay. Cooling effectiveness increases over time.



  • Photon Projector: Photon Forge replaces your elite tool-belt skill. Gain access to Exceed skills.
  • Heat Therapy: Gain health per unit of heat lost.
  • Laser’s Edge: While photon forge is active and you are above the heat threshold, your outgoing damage is increased.


  • Light Density Amplifier: Photon Forge reduces incoming damage but has increased passive heat generation.
  • Prismatic Converter: Deactivate Photon Forge converts conditions into boons based on your heat level.
  • Solar Focusing Lens: Your first few attacks after entering Photon Forge inflict burning. This bonus is also granted if you overheat.


  • Crystal Configuration: Storm: Photon Forge skill 1 now fires explosive projectiles, but generates extra heat.
  • Crystal Configuration: Eclipse: Corona Burst grants stability on each attack and creates a barrier for each target struck.
  • Crystal Configuration: Zephyr: Holo Leap removes movement-impairing conditions and grant superspeed instead of swiftness. 


  • Enhanced Capacity Storage Unit: Increases maximum heat capacity. While above 100% heat, periodically gain might. Some skills and traits gain additional heat tiers.
  • Photonic Blasting Module: Overheating now blasts damage to nearby foes and no longer deals its initial damage to you. Heat cannot be lost except after you’ve overheated. Gain Heat Therapy and Laser’s Edge after overheating.
