This build is a very strong support build for raids specifically. While it does of course still perform in any content, it excels at raid support. While it’s added benefit may not seem like a huge benefit, it increases everyone’s overall damage per second. Lunafaction Boots increases everyone’s reload speed, maxing out the reload speed stat. The faster you reload, the faster you can continue doing damage.
Touch of Flame is a big increase in our grenade damage. Solar Grenades now lob out lava around the perimeter of the grenade, and increases the duration of the grenade. Both of these added bonuses increase the overall damage of the grenade exponentially. Heat Rises allows you to shoot your weapons while gliding. Consuming the grenade will allow you to float for much longer, and you gain increase directional control. This is really helpful for any jump puzzles in raids that you may encounter.
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 Char will spread scorch to all enemies within the vicinity of an ignition. This helps control the field and continuously spread scorch to everyone. 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 apply restoration to you and other when you revive allies. More importantly, you also gain restoration when you collect Firesprites.

Furthering into the support role that focuses on raid support, Gjallarhorn is the best option here. Not only is it a strong rocket launcher, but it amplifies your allies rocket launchers to deal more damage. This is a great bonus for any encounter that relies on rocket launchers to clear.
The Calus Mini-Tool SMG can roll with Incandescant which is very strong with any scorching build. Highly recommended in this build.
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.
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 get away with Demolitionist, it won’t synergize quite as well with this build, but 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.
