The Condi Holosmith is a bursty and high-damage condi build that performs very well in condition comps, and especially well in the Sunqua Peak fractal.
It offers:
There's another variant of this build that uses the trait
(TRV) where the build in this page uses
(PBM). TRV can reach its peak damage more often when compared to PBM, but it can be unreliable in real fights because of boon uptimes. With PBM, even if your group lacks perfect Alacrity and Vigor, you'll eventually reach 0 Heat and be able to start Photon Forge again. However, with TRV you will likely have to delay Photon Forge thus resulting in a larger DPS loss.

Situational Skills
An alternative heal skill if condition cleanse is needed. You can cast it in a Fire Field to blast Might, but make sure you do it after the field is down because this turret creates a Water Field.
This skill also reflects projectiles in front of you.

Rotation/Skill Usage
Rotation Explanation
The rotation is like a priority list, with your most important skills being:
Abilities listed above are all very high-damage skills. Taking cast times and cooldowns in consideration, the priority list is thus:
,
,
,
,
,
and
. Those skills are all very important when in a state of
, while
and
are the major abilities to be used in
.
Always preheat to 77–80 Heat before engaging combat.
Extra Notes
  • Use
    off cooldown.
  • ,
    and
    can be used to mitigate damage in add-heavy fights.
  • Try to manage your Heat in split phases. Ideally, you always want to be back at 80 Heat when starting to burst into a new phase.
Example Rotation
  1. Preheat to 80
  2. 3 times
  3. 2 times
  4. (2 times)
  5. Any phase should be over by this point; the rest of the rotation is in the linked video on the side. On bosses with one continuous phase, you'll most likely have improvised by that point, and the use of CC abilities will have made you do a different rotation anyway; this is just an example rotation. Follow the priority list on the side.
Precasting
  • Make sure that you will start the fight on your desired Heat (usually 80).
  • You can either swap utility skills manually or via a template. Make sure to have the same traits in both templates selected if you choose the template route.
  • If this is taken care of, you can do the following extra pre-casts:
    1. Equip
      ,
      and
      .
    2. Place
      .
    3. Use
      or
      to provide a fire field.
    4. Use
      ,
      and
      to blast.
    5. Use
      .
    6. Swap to your regular utilities.
    7. Take the singularity.
  • provides yet another blast finisher if it works with your Heat management.
