  • should be used every 7 seconds to activate and .
Be very careful not to use the last charge of your mantras unless the fight is nearly over or personal/party healing is desperately needed. A safe way to use can be to only use it when all charges are available so that 1 charge can always be used for sustain.

Screaming gave this build 5 stars August 2019

After the recent buffs, much like the pure DPS variant, this build is astoundingly strong considering just how essential quickness is for both DPS and quality of life in raids, often able to compete with pure DPS builds themselves. Easily one of the strongest support builds right now, and very simple to play while at it, too.

I don't know if it's a mistake or what...but running 'Stalwarts Speed' is unnecessary, just bring 'Liberators Vow' only. The quickness isn't doubled if you heal+aegis, therefore its one of the other, and since this is a vipers set up it would be significantly more beneficial to take 'Legendary Lore' for the increased burning duration. Also, 'Glacial Blow' is a trait for hammers only...this is not a hammer build, use 'Absolute Resolution' instead so you can insta aoe cleanse 3 condis when you open tome 2. Might wanna get a discount double check on that quickness uptime too...
