Every source and forum I've visited, when talking about Solarian revelations for a melee build, suggests Corona as a great revelation...but they always (in their own words) state that the damage caused by being directly adjacent to the Solarian (when they are attuned) affects enemies. It is their changing of the wording to "enemies" that has me confused as the text says that:
When you are attuned or fully attuned, any creature that starts its turn adjacent to you while your corona is in effect takes fire damage equal to half your solarian level.
That means any allies adjacent to you, at the start of their turns, will take that fire damage (equal to half level). Am I right? My group has a lot of situations with tight fighting (in corridors), and my character is large sized, so seems like a lot of situations where using it would be detrimental to my party as well.
