GW2. Grenade Holosmith Roaming Build.
The Grenade Holosmith can overcome almost any situation just by doing insane damage while kiting. It has medium range burst damage from grenades and plenty of mobility from superspeed.
Maintaining your heat above 100 is important because it gives might which not only gives a damage boost, but it also heals from alchemy traits and will give more condition to boon conversion when leaving forge. The mobility is high due to the super speed on Holo Leap, which will also cleanse Immobilize, Cripple, and Chill, allowing an aggressive playstyle that goes in and out.
To keep your heat high without overheating, use Corona Burst and Holo Leap more freely. Use Photon Blitz only when you can guarantee the hit, just throwing it out and missing is a big waste of heat. Avoid Holographic Shockwave unless your heat is really low. Corona Burst can be used at the end of your forge rotation and so long as you leave forge before the skill pulses your heat to 100 you will not overheat.
Setup your Ground Targeting option as “Instant” as well as enabling “Skill Retargeting” and practice aiming with your Grenade Kit while moving for better accuracy. This improves your damage output while under pressure or kiting drastically.
