Specializations

  • / - lower dps in exchange for sustain, might be worth on very few fights with extreme preassure like Boneskinner.
  • - since you have 0 healing power, a healer's Regeneration will override yours even with Elder's Respite, but you can take this trait if your subgroup's healer has low uptime of Regeneration Regeneration.
  • could be used if you are dealing with mechanics off-stack. By consuming you can provide an extra padding of boons which will hopefully last until you return.

  • You need about 45% boon duration to upkeep Quickness Quickness, this gear set provides 50% for some margin of error.


Equipment Variants

Boon Duration

If you consume towards the end of the Glint section, you can lower your boon duration to ~30%. Doing so is a DPS increase, but will lower the group lifesteal you provide when in Shiro as well as the duration of the groupwide boon duration from Glint.


Sigil Variants

is taken because it deals more damage than due to Herald's low damage and abundance of power modifiers, but it can be swapped out in some situations:

  • On encounters where the target can be Stunned Stunned or Exposed Exposed (such as strikes, fractals, or Keep Construct) then you should use a instead.
  • If you're struggling to maintain boons, you could bring a .
  • If your subgroup is struggling to keep up 25 stacks of Might Might, it might be beneficial to bring to gain an extra ~5 stacks of might generation through .


Rune Variants

  • Many of the popular Alacrity Alacrity providers also provide 25 stacks of Might Might, but in the event this is not the case, you could use to gain an extra ~5 stacks of might generation.

Usage

Legends

  • - absolutely key to the build, this is your source of boons. It also increases the duration of boons the whole squad provides by 20%. Note this effect does not actually increase Concentration, it increases Boon Duration (and is not shown in the Hero Panel), so a build with this effect and 100% Boon Duration would provide boons lasting 120% longer.
  • provides the highest personal DPS through and provides the squad with —Assassin which gives allies life siphon increasing the squad's DPS by about 2,3k~. It provides personal mobility through , and CC through .
  • is a personal DPS loss of about 1k~. It provides your squad with —Dwarf which reduces damage taken by 10%. You can provide Stability Stability through , CC through , and reduce personal incoming strike and condition damage by 20% with . If needed, it can also reduce incoming strike damage to your subgroup by 50% with .
  • is an extremely niche option. It is a massive DPS loss that should almost never be taken, only if your group desperately needs projectile block through . It also offers condition cleanse through , CC through , and a very weak heal through —Centaur.
  • should never be played in bosses, but it offers a pull with which may be useful when fighting trash mobs if your group does not have pulls.


Rotation

  • Start on Glint with and use:


Loop

  • When on , autoattack and use for DPS under the effect of Impossible Odds and swap back to as soon as possible.
  • When you enter , delay your Legend Swap to follow this rotation:
  1. Autoattack until Chilling Isolation is available
  2. Autoattack until Chilling Isolation is available
  3. Autoattack until your facets are available again
  • Basically, you cast your utility Facets and sword 4 and 5 twice, and your heal and elite Facet once.

Notes

  • Maintain for the increased boon duration.
  • Never run out of Energy or Facet of Nature will turn off and go on cooldown for 4 seconds.
  • Your Facets remain active for 6 seconds when Consumed thaks to .
  • Your Facets pulse boons on a 600 range radius, but only provides Quickness Quickness on a 360 range radius, so stay close to your allies.

OfficerAndyGentleman gave this build 4 stars • November 2022
Great boon coverage, respectable damage and groupwide support from the Nature passive. Really excels when you need access to huge amounts of stability or CC, and experienced groups can use it to run lower boon durations on their other supports.
5 stars
Warming Hearth gave this build 5 stars • July 2022
Even though its damage is not very high, power quickness herald is a great build thanks to all the boons it provides, and permanently! It also has great CC by using staff. The 10-people buffs (like extra boon duration when channelling Glint) are also excellent.
