With another nerf on Healbreaker, this build is THE meta support build. It offers insane amounts of healing, condition cure, and general support value, while being incredibly hard to kill. It can almost single handedly shutdown a lot of the common DPS in the current meta by denying their burst for all teammates. Crazy good right now, if you want to win as support there is no better choice.
Edit: Will probably drop in viability after april 6th update
Having played support FB before sever nerfs, I was sceptical at first of this build. But oh boy, was I wrong. Probably the best support in the current meta, core shout guardian offers great healing, damage mitigation, boons, CC, emergency res (I missed you, Signet of Mercy!) ...AND impressive survivability. You can easily handle 2v1 or even 3v1 until help arrives. The build does almost no damage though, but that is actually balance.
Glad to see core support guard doing so well, it's probably one of my all time favorite builds. This has everything you could ask for in a support build: excellent sustain, boon sharing (including multiple sources of stability), damage mitigation, damage prevention (aegis), mass cleansing, AoE healing, anti-projectile, ranged rez and even some CC to peel for allies. Very diverse and powerful toolkit.
Shout support guard has absolutely insane personal sustain as well as great team healing, condition cleanse and boon application. Definitely a meta contender, only difference is it has a lower health pool than some supports so you need to time stuff well, but its not hard. Gonna give it 5 stars but i really recommend you include signet of mercy, renewed focus and possibly even retreat as options since they are equally as good and in some cases even better than the ones listed
