Is Helious even worth it?

Helios is a Siren skill. I'm not too far in the game, but I'm assuming that most of your enemies will be robots, so since Helios does fire damage, wouldn't it be pointless? I have it at lvl 2 right now. I'm thinking about putting my points elsewhere. What do you think about it?

Helios is very effective.

I'm a level 22 Siren, I find it really useful so far.

It does a hell of a lot damage once you get it leveled up.

And if you can snag a good class mod for it (I have the Hell Witch, which gives it +4 ranks!!) it can be brutal. That, combined with Convergence is a nasty combo.

Just waiting until I can get Ruin!

If your not far into the game stop worrying about it. Worry about what's effective later o. Bt to answer yes it's worthy it. Between Helios and ruin every status effect goes into motion when you lock an enemy.

Most enemies are not robots. Even if they were, fire isn't ineffective against them. It's just MORE effective against health then armor or shield.

About 25-35% of the enemies you face are robots or have "flaming" immunity of some kind

The rest are made of flesh ... and fire is highly effective vs. flesh ...


If you do the math, Helios is AMAZINGLY useful.

Helios is fantastic.

Slap someone with Phaselock+helios then shoot them with a slag weapon+cloud kill

Fun, fun, fun.....

Hell Fox is the best mod for Phase locking damage. Bonus to Helios and Bonus to fire damage and ignite chance. It synergizes with itself!
