Helios is a tier 2 skill in Maya's Cataclysm skill tree. When Maya Phaselocks an enemy, a burst of fire will damage and ignite everything nearby.


  • Helios Damage Rank: +1 per level.
Level 1 2 3 4 5
Damage Rank +1 +2 +3 +4+5
Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Damage Rank +6 +7 +8 +9 +10+11

Can only be leveled past 5 with Binder, Fox, Witch, and Legendary Binder class mods.


  • The damage inflicted by Helios scales linearly with rank in the skill, and exponentially with character level. More specifically, the base damage of Helios follows this formula:
    • 1.6 × R × 1.13L, where R is rank in Helios and L is the character's level.
  • The Burn damage bonus from a Fox class mod does not increase the initial detonation damage, but does increase the subsequent ignition damage over time.
  • A fire Elemental Relic increases both the initial damage and damage over time.
  • Helios detonates regardless of whether the targeted enemy is immune to Phaselock.
