Ventari Herald is a healing-oriented build that is based on strong burst healing along with powerful condition cleanse. In addition, useful boons are distributed with Glint and
is maintained for group-wide boon duration. Assassin's Presence is a usefull ~3%-5% damage increase for power based subgroups.
If another revenant or herald is present, which offers Assassin's Presence, alternatively a variant with Invocation instead of Devastation can be played. Unlike the devestation variant, however, it's not based on strong burstheads but on constant healing by the tablet. Keep in mind that this version is harder to play since better energy management is necessary to maintain Can't find such trait " Shrouding Mists"! Please refer to our trait index.
