Hallowfire Heart

This is an all-around great solar build that doesn’t really focus into anything specific, while having great ability uptime potential. At it’s base, it provides almost double the recharge rate for your grenade and melee abilities while your super is uncharged. However, with a fully charged super, you gain almost 4 times the recharge rate for these abilities. This makes spamming your abilities that much better for this build. The ideal playstyle would be to save your super until a boss or an emergency use to stay alive, because we want to retain our regeneration rate throughout normal engagements. This makes Hallowfire a decent all-around exotic to be used in just about any game mode, but also does not focus on anything heavily that may be a game changer. Good, decent build to have.

Roaring Flame is a great way to stack damage increases on your abilities, and why using as many of your abilities is important with this build. Final blows with solar abilities increases their damage, stacking x3. With the improve regeneration rate of our abilities already, it should be really easy to keep this increase active throughout any engagement. Sol Invictus, Is another aspect that works heavily with our abilities. Solar ability final blows, and defeating scorched targets will now create Sunspots. Standing in a Sunspots allow your abilities to recharge much faster, and if you are in your super, it will drain slower while standing in it. Sunspots also damage enemies that are standing in them, and when you are in them, they apply restoration. With the heavy focus on abilities, there should be no shortage of Sunspots to keep your abilities active, and make staying alive that much easier.

Ember of Searing
will create Firesprites when killing any scorched enemy. It does have a short cooldown between activations. Firesprites provide grenade energy when collected. Ember of Torches make you radiant when you hit enemies with your powered melee attack. Radiant increases your damage and the damage of anyone near you. Ember of Mercy will grant restoration when picking up Firesprites. This makes gathering these sprites help with both ability and survivability. Ember of Solace will increase the duration that Radiant lasts (Ember of Torches) and Restoration (Ember of Mercy/Sunspots). This helps retain these buffs as long as possible between engagements, helping ensure there is no downtime.

Weapon Recommendation
Exotic Weapon(s)
Conditional Finality

An extremely strong shotgun for just about any build, but specifically for its effectiveness at causing solar ignitions. This is the ideal weapon to use against champions, or any tougher target, in any difficulty level of the game. The first shot will freeze the target in place, and the second will cause an ignition (if enough pellets hit the enemy). This makes the shotgun an ideal weapon when using a solar subclass.

Legendary Weapon(s)
Calus Mini-Tool

The Calus Mini-Tool SMG can roll with Incandescant which is very strong with any scorching build. Highly recommended in this build.

Cartesian Coordinate

This is a great rapid-fire fusion rifle that can output great damage. With the Vorpal weapon perk, it is great for bosses.


Cataclysmic is amazing for boss damage. It is particularly powerful for any distant DPS requirement.

Perk Recommendation

Incandescant or Demolitionist


Any weapon with Incandescant is ideal for this build. Because Incandescant will Scorch targets for each final blow. The more scorch stacks on enemies the better since it helps with solar ignitions as well. You could also use Demolitionist, it will synergize quite well with this build, and it will help you keep your grenade energy charged.

Solar Siphon/Harmonic Siphon
Either one of these siphons works for the build. Recommend using the less expensive one that is currently available.
