5 star. One of the best support build in the current meta. Mandatory one FB each party.
Mace is better for large scale combat over Axe.
Double sigil of transference is a waste. use 1 life if you need more healing power or 1 benevolence if you want to maximise MI.
Also use Stalwart Speed if you have support tempest in squad.
Best build in the game, must have in a party providing all boons necessary for survivability. Resistance field in F3 tome is the best skill in the game.
1x life sigil , 1x transference would give you more healing than 2x transference though.
Best support by far at the moment. The whole kit provides tons of boons (like aegis, stability and resistance), cleanse and healing. Must have build in any composition.
Alpha and Omega of group WvW play and the most OP build in WvW imo. It's just great with defensive boon support, healing and group stunbreaks. Totaly OP.
Even after the latest nerfs this build remains incredibly powerful. It provides nearly everything your team needs from a support.
Hands down the most effective heal and support build in the game right now. The bar compression of support utility eliminates other classes from having to spec for resistance, cleanse, stability, etc. Coupled with very decent healing, this is now the goto heal/support slot build. With Firebrand, hybrid Guardians have moved away and split roles have been created due to the unique role of the Tomes. This build finds very low use of weapons for DPS, but brings awesome aegis spam, and the shield gives a very nice defensive bubble. After recent buffs, I have swapped in Merciful Intervention instead of CoP, which scales real nicely and provides downstate control
Extremely effective build. This is the bread and butter sustain for any organized group. Sigil of water should be taken out and replaced with monk. It is objectively superior to the rune of water. Merciful intervention and pure of voice should be listed as alternates.
Despite a lack of damage, I found this build the single most effective way to support a group, comparable with tempests and druids but with the powerful addition of Stability, CC and additional boons. Even in a pug zerg, the healing output alone more than compensates for the minimal damage loss, and is an incredibly good build to run for any Firebrand player.
