Peliagudest gave this build 5 stars • February 2024
Maybe less healing and cleanses than other 2nd supports, even no immobile condition and maybe less CC than others. Probably more superspeed than other 2nd supports, lot of fields, Dark poison field utility, even Ice if you choose mortar; good barriers with the recent changes and a lot of Blasts. So I dont know if still "meta", but still useful specially for the movility from superspeed and helping people to stack.

This is still a fantastic build that deserves meta tier. While it doesn't cleanse as much as druid or tempest and it doesn't heal as much as vindicator it provides a middle ground of solid cleanses and healing. While it is a fantastic support in any comp its unique level of superspeed access means that stacking scrappers is an absolute must for melee comps.

Still a capable cleanser and capable healer. While the increased cooldowns on multiple cleanse skills hurt the gameflow and notable downtime occurs, the pure mass of cleanse can still keep up with Druid, Vindicator and average Tempests. For continued pushes the cleanse downtime can become a problem, but Scrapper could still be a best pick if the fight plan allows for that.

Strong build for zerg play, complements the Support Firebrand as the second half of the squad backbone. Most squads will want each 5 man subgroup to have one Med Kit Scrapper or Frontline Aurashare Tempest in it.
