A heal Herald build that provides permanent Quickness, Fury, Swiftness, Regeneration, Protection, and 25 Might to its subgroup. It also provides to the whole squad, increasing boon duration while channelling Glint.
It can also provide other utilities depending on the second Legend chosen, such as Stability or damage reduction.
- Your second Legend defaults to . Read the Legends section below to see other alternatives.
Retribution is used here for Might uptime. When you have Resolution, you give yourself Might every second while attacking, which triggers . Without this, you cannot keep Might capped on your own, but if you are not solely responsible for it, you could replace this Specialization with Invocation to get a bit more energy to play with.
- This setup is intended to cap boon duration with +70 concentration food. You could replace the Magi stats pieces with Harrier stats if you want extra boon duration.
