Usage

Priorities

High
Moderate
  • Condition clear
  • CC
  • Healing
  • Primary boon support
Low
  • Cover boon support


Surviving

  • This build has high passive defense
  • This build has moderate mobility skill access
  • This build has high active defense
    • While your active defenses are strong, they are ideally saved for your group and not used selfishly
    • "Stand Your Ground!" can be prioritized over Mantra of Liberation, but only if your entire party is in range and not stunned (or not in range of Mantra of Liberation)
Active defense priority Toggle
  • Dodge
  • Renewed Focus
  • Empower - if you have time to finish cast
  • Holy Strike
  • Shield of Absorption - only if the knockback isn’t disruptive
  • Aegis Aegis
    • Protector's Strike
    • Shield of Judgment


Detailed Explanations

Stability

  • Apply Stability Stability before allies get caught by enemy CC
  • When using "Stand Your Ground!" cover the application by applying other boons immediately after the cast
  • Avoid overlapping multiple Stability Stability sources on your party, both your own and other players
  • Enemy CC is most likely to land when they spike your group, your group is moving through theirs, or your group is moving away from theirs.
Stability Stability priority Toggle
  • "Stand Your Ground!"
  • Shield of Courage
  • Hallowed Ground


Shield of Courage

  • Use Shield of Courage to block for your party and give Stability Stability via Indomitable Courage
    • Shield of Courage blocks damage coming from enemy players you are facing
      • This means the center of an AoE can be behind you, but if you're facing the player that cast it the damage will be blocked
    • Shield of Courage blocks for allies inside the cone of the shield animation in front of you
  • Reset Shield of Courage with Aegis Aegis via Tenacious Defense and Renewed Focus


CC

  • Wings of Resolve can also be used for cleanse, hit both groups with it if possible, but generally prioritizing using it offensively is best
  • Use your CC when:
    • Your group calls a spike:
      • Winds - Winds of Disenchantment
      • Wells - Well of Corruption+Well of Suffering
      • Shades - Desert Shroud
      • Traps - Procession of Blades+Test of Faith
    • On top of enemy downs (while alive players are on top of them)
    • Enemy groups moving defensively while your group is pushing


Healing

  • Be careful when healing others, Empower is a powerful heal but can easily leave you out of position if misused
Healing priority Toggle
  • Empower (if you have time to finish cast)
  • Holy Strike
  • Shield of Absorption (only if the knockback isn’t disruptive)
  • Dodge (Selfless Daring)
  • Aegis Aegis
    • Protector's Strike
    • Shield of Judgment
  • Regeneration Regeneration
    • Symbol of Faith


Settings

  • 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.
  • Also under General Options / User Interface turn on Thick party health bars
    • Thick squad health bars can be used too as a matter of personal preference, but is not recommended for large numbers
  • 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.
