Consumables

Variants

  • Consider adding more Minstrel's if survivability is an issue.

Sigils

  • Staff
    • instead of Sigil of Life for GvGs/duels where stacking sigils are considered bad form.

Usage

General

  • Before a fight, start on Glint in order to proc Invoking Harmony.png Invoking Harmony when switching to Ventari.
  • Use Facet of Nature.png Facet of Nature as often as possible to prolong boons while on Glint and to grant a very strong passive healing while on Ventari (both affecting 10 allies due to Draconic Echo.png Draconic Echo).
  • Always try to go below 10% energy before swapping in order to proc Charged Mists.png Charged Mists.

Ventari

  • Move your tablet with Ventari's Will.png Ventari's Will as often as possible in order to keep up regeneration, as well as the healing from moving the tablet. This result a total of 2-4k healing per second easily.
  • Natural Harmony.png Natural Harmony is your main burst healing skill. This should be used when the burst is coming.
  • Purifying Essence.png Purifying Essence is a strong condition clear for yourself and your allies, use when it is needed.
  • Protective Solace.png Protective Solace is a barrier that block projectiles, and is also a movable light field. Consider coordinating with your group to blast this for condition clear or when ressing ally is needed.
  • Energy Expulsion.png Energy Expulsion is a knock back that sacrifices the tablet, can be used to prevent stomps, among other things. Also try to use it before swapping if you are above 10% energy.

Glint


Gameplay Tips

  • You can use skills such as Natural Harmony.png Natural Harmony while the tablet is moving to a new position in order to time the healing for when the tablet arrives.
  • Try to use energy carefully and not waste it.

Weaknesses

  • High skill cap for tablet usage
  • Reliant on energy management

As of now, revenant is clearly worse than both firebrand and scrapper. It is both harder to use, having a delay both on the movement of your tablet and also on your heal skill, but doesn't offer nearly the same level of utility that firebrand or scrapper does with its stability and condition clear being more easily available.

What can i say ? This build is one of the easiest to gear up, it's cheap, effective from small to big scale battle, it's safe, easy to play and a hundred percent projectiles block uptime. All in all this is a poor man support build but doesn't mean it's weak at all.

Undervalued WvW built that shines in zergs and gvg. The amount of passive healing through Facet of Nature (10 pax), boons and insane targeted heal bursts can often sway the battle outcome.

the best burst heal and sustain heal in the game. can heal from range and dont have to be with the melee train like FB or Scrapper. outheal the FB and has same hps like scrapper. with jallis has access to stability and dmg reduction which no compare to any other class. with herald can share boons and regen itself can be 1200 hps to 10 ppl.

down side you need good commander which call direction of movement or to master zerg fight movement to anticipate where the heal should go.

Excellent build. Requires careful control of energy to ensure Pain Absorption is available when needed. However, strong conditions management with Pain Absorption and Purifying Essense. If paired with a guardian, stability should not be a concern. Strong heal support, arguably one of the strongest raw healing builds currently, however more challenging to ensure heals are on the proper location needed. Alacrity tops off this build for a win. Resistance, boon duration, cleanse, heals, alacrity, range blocks, CC? All around powerful build with a lot to bring to the team.

Almost impossible to use given how quick the movement has become since pof. Dead very quickly if caught out. Heavily outclassed by firebrand.

I'm thinking wheter to give it a basic or good rating, but i have to go for basic.

It is a build that should work, but it has no advantages over firebrand support and given it's unreliability (it was hard to use even in HoT when we were on 1 spot(300 range circle for instance) for much longer) and a delay on primary heal option.

Not sure why this is so low, Ventari as a healer is very solid.

Flexible build that can combine the best things Revenant has to offer with healing surpassing Tempest and bring additional utility like Alacrity on top of that. Contrary to other healers, it doesn't have to be near ally to heal him, although will require getting used to operating Tablet, timing it's skills while predicting ally movement and not wasting Energy. Invocation can be swapped with Retribution or Corruption depending on gear choices and needs/preferences. Axe instead of Shield is also an option.

Good Build, Could use a little tweaking here and there, but Having HH(Healer Herald) in your squad makes a huge difference, and you definitely will feel it during zerg fights. If you have 2 or 3 running HH, the mobility issue is not a factor. Can sustain better then any other Healer in the Game.

This is one of the greatest Rev builds god ever gave man on the face of this earth. I have personally used this build and have gotten 10-11.5k heals every TWO seconds WITHOUT modifiers. This build will keep even Zog alive

Survivability? Check

MASSIVE heals? Check

Boon duration? Check

3400 Toughness? Check

Seriously a very good dedicated heal build that can still offer resistance to group, heal / clear condis, sustain, and yada yada youve stopped reading. Drop an ele, pair this rev with a druid and you will just meme on kids.
