- Defensive option with boon duration.

- Under General Options / User Interface check "Always show squad health bars" and "Always show party health bars". These will make it much easier to keep track of who needs your support. "Thick squad health bars" and "Thick party health bars" are up to personal preference.
- Under "Squad Options" uncheck "View as a grid". This will allow you to keep track of your allies' boons, conditions and health, enabling a better decision-making and skill management.

- , and are key skills since all conditions you cleanse turn into boons through .
- Superspeed doesn't stack duration and new application will remove the old one even if it is longer duration. Therefore, try to not overlap gyros unless it is necessary. Also blasts finishers on lightning fields will also provide AoE Superspeed, besides the gyro's final pulse, enabling more access to superspeed.
All Gyro skills provide AoE Superspeed, keeping group mobility high and averting slowing conditions. Bear in mind that the superspeed proc isn't immediate. Timing the gyros' usage to proc the superspeed at the right moment is important.
- use it to double rez by activating it from a distance and then helping out manually. It also procs .
- Can also be used for the instantly AoE Superspeed field it gives.
- use to quickly remove conditions and apply AoE superspeed.
- provides a lightning field and 4 seconds of a strong damage reduction for allies, which redirects some of the damage (approximately 35%) to the caster while providing Barrier to him. In severe spikes, it can be dangerous to the Scrapper.
- is one of your strongest defensive cooldowns, providing 3 stacks of Stability and an anti-projectile dome. Use it to disrupt projectile pressure and to fill stability gaps on allies.
- is a very strong skill if coordinated with your group for stealth engages. Also convenient to safely stomp enemies and ressurect allies.
- is your bread and butter healing skill. When paired with Quickness from it brings an even greater healing pressure.
- and grant a substantial healing burst.
- For Bandage Blast, the closer you are to an isolated ally, more bandages can hit him, providing an even stronger healing.
- grants a 300-radius water field which cleanses conditions every pulse. Use it to soften incoming condition pressure from scourge's shades for example.
- abuse the 900-range, place it on spots that your group will be. Also throw it on light, water or lightning fields to benefit from the combo finisher. Synergizes with .

- Bandage Self usage triggers every healing skill related trait, usage doesn't.
- cleanses conditions on allies only (not on the caster) every pulse. Similar to Firebrand's mantras, it works as a 450-range conal ability, therefore try to position yourself a little behind to maximize the number of affected allies. Usable to go through shade bombs and sustain during heavy enemy engages.
- should be casted off cooldown on spots that your allies will be for more sustain and whenever minor condition clear is needed.
- is a stunbreak and should only be used for that purpose.
- use it whenever a blast finisher is needed. Synergizes with .

- use it to catch out targets that don't have stability.
- Try to use it on foes stuck inside or pulled by to chain CC then.
- Seeing that it has a relatively long cast time/animation, you can "Stow Weapon" to cancel it if you notice it won't connect.
- Since it's a lightning field, can also be used to leap/blast it to proc AoE Superspeed.
- is a personal block and defensive cooldown, and can also be used for body blocking. Save it for panic situations where none defensive cooldowns are avaliable.
- gap closer skill useful to engage or retreat while evading damage. Provides 2 leap finishers.
- You can cancel the aftercast of Rocket Charge by swapping to a kit and going back to the Hammer (drop the kit with the weapon swap key). Very helpful in situations where you want to leap on a lightning field only once (to proc the trait) without being stuck on the animation for like 3 seconds or landing on a dangerous spot.
