A healing Scrapper build for raids, designed for supplementing a raid squad that already has one Druid. As a secondary raid healer, this build brings extremely high healing and strong defensive utility, including a ranged resurrect with and a unique defensive aura from .

This build is capable of providing high uptimes of Protection Protection and Might Might. It can also generate 100% Quickness Quickness uptime to its subgroup, though doing so requires using your gyros off cooldown, reducing your ability to use those abilities reactively.

Icedmanta gave this build 5 stars July 2021

With recent changes to Scrapper's ability to provide boons to a group, this build is a viable (and in some cases preferable) alternative to a Firebrand, only lacking in certain areas such as might/fury output and other raw boon outputs provided by Firebrand.

An extremely solid healer for training groups or groups looking for a safer clear, with ridiculous sustained healing and condition cleanse. It offers heavy defensive utility like Firebrand as well as fast rezzes like Scourge. Perhaps the best reason to bring it is Bulwark Gyro, which offers damage reduction in high-pressure fights.
