Related traits[edit]


  • This version of Deactivate Photon Forge appears when the Holosmith heat level exceeds 85% of maximum.
When the default Deactivate Photon Forge cooldown is decreased through alacrity, the decreased cooldown will not be transferred over to Deactivate Photon Forge (hot). This can cause an extra 1 second before this skill can be used.
