Minion Master

Much to the Editor's chagrin, there exists a variant of this build that can solo almost every boss in the game, provided that boss does not have high self healing. This is the ever-relevant Minion Master Cleric Scourge. To play this variant, simply fill your bar with minions and swap Soul Reaping for Death Magic.



Equipment

Ascended gear is not required, exotic with the same stats will work.

General PVE

  • Note: There are many variants of Heal Scourge in endgame PVE. When it comes to open world, the Marshal variant is almost always the best option, as at least some Strike damage output is needed to receive tag credit in most meta event farms. The build above uses gear identical to the raid heal hybrid build to make gearing easy; it may be recommended to run a few extra Shaman stat icon.png Shaman pieces, however, as Heal Scourge is a bit more life force hungry in Open World.

Marshal

This set uses full Marshal gear to make gearing easier. This will severely hamper Life Force generation; to allieviate this, run . This results in a DPS loss, but higher Strike output and barrier values.

Easily one of the best open world supports due to the insane CC and barrier. This build is ideal for commanders because of its innate tankiness as well.
