Utility
  • The stealth from can cause issues for the group as it interrupts autoattacks and can disrupt tanking and other thieves' rotation. It may be easier to swap it out for another well or other utility.

  • The can be replaced with a if you want to provide more CC.


Condi Variant

  • This might result in a small healing loss as you'll have slightly less concentration and healing power, but some of that is made up for with a higher health bar and possibly larger barrier spread
  • Damage output should be higher due to the condition damage and spread

Apparently I am "trolling". This isn't true and I'd hazard that I have more than enough experience on Specter to give an informed opinion. I don't think personal attacks are useful so I'd kindly request that we focus on the build. As of October 2022, the build has worsened for healing even though Might uptime has improved - this is because of the changes to Well of Bounty which means that Specter cannot maintain group-wide regeneration and protection uptime is severely reduced. Furthermore, our healing via Consume Shadows has been substantially decreased and we still struggle with condi clear. As a result, the suggested loop involving Shadow Squall is not particularly brilliant and a competent heal Specter should effectively be camping Sword/Pistol, using initiative on Infiltrator's Strike/Infiltrator's Return for healing, headshot for CC and then using Black Powder before entering Shroud. This should be blasted for a small amount of stealth to afford some protection (potentially annoying your DPS at the same time). The build remains at 2 stars imo - it is fine with experienced groups and if you aren't aiming for high end instanced PvE gameplay, primarily due to high healing output, good barrier, good CC and some select utility such as Smokescreen. The biggest issue facing heal alacrity Specter is that our profession choices don't exist in a vacuum and the other options are stronger.

Definitely can get the job done and keep your party standing while providing alac, fury, vigor, regen, and protection and respectable amounts of CC. Great burst healing through Consume Shadows and resurrections potential with Shadestep. However, it lacks consistent stability along and the five second delay in your biggest burst heal, quickly reacting to panic situation is a bit sketchy in high pressure situations. Along with the fact that Heal Alac Mechanist and now Heal Alac Druid can perform better in most, if not all situations, and that some of the biggest strengths of this build can also be achieved with a DPS Alac Specter build, I find it hard to recommend this build for optimized groups. That being said, it's perfectly passable as a healer, and its a very fun, fast paced playstyle that's easy to pick up. If optimization is not your goal and you'd like to try something completely different from your normal heal builds, this may just be the build for you.

Please don't listen to the guy that gave this build 2 stars.... He must be trolling. This build is perfect for healing and supplies Alac for the group.

Good support healer when paired with a Hb or Druid. Brings Ala to the table.

So far from testing , this works. Did good with Eod strikes, but have not tried raids yet.

Very fun elite spec to play, and i would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to try out healing/support. Most people that say this spec is not good are just toxic players that never pull away from the meta. People seems to forget that the point of the game is to have fun, and this spec has a ton of it. Make sure your squad/party stands in boons , and dont be shy to use them. I was able to complete all raids,strikes, and all t3 fractals with no problem.

You can Zap People back to life in down state. Very fun spec for Eod Strikes, and would say100% viable.

Had a lot of fun with this build paired with druid as the other healer. Easily made quick work of of the new Eod Strikes. I would recommend giving this build a try for healing/ alac.

Can work in a pinch but doesn't do anything that another class just does way better. Better off going condi boon support to still decent DPS and provide alacrity
