New Skill Tree Announced

Today I bring you an overview of Amara’s Enlightened Force Skill Tree. This 4th skill tree is part of the Designer’s Cut DLC package which also contains a new standalone game mode called Arms Race.

Phaseflare Action Skill

The Enlightened Force Skill Tree comes with the Phaseflare action skill. This lets you summon an elemental Orb which you then can slam around the combat zone. The Orb will do damage on impact but also deals Area-of-Effect damage. Throughout the skill tree, you can get different variations of this action skill. You upgrade the Phaseflare to heal allies, shoot projectiles, or automatically follow you around. Each variation has its own pros and cons.

Unlike Amara’s other action skills the duration of the Phaseflare is pretty long. It provides you with an ability to control a zone. The gameplay is a bit slower as you have to position yourself and the Orb but it is fun and gives you new ways to play the game.

Melee and Cryo Damage

This 4th Skill Tree also adds a new element to Amara’s arsenal. You are now able to equip the Cryo element and with the Enlightened Force Skill Tree, you can also take advantage of that element. Because there are multiple skills that are triggered when you freeze an enemy.

Amara’s Enlightened Force Skill Tree already has you slamming an elemental Orb around and doubles down on it as you have multiple passive skills that boost your melee damage.
