This build has good healing, very strong CC, and access to a very wide range of offensive and defensive boons for your allies. Make sure to read the remarks for alternatives for runes and utility skills.

Build fundamentals

Playing Support Mechanist is relatively easy to pick up, you will want to use most of your skills off-cooldown for maximum boon uptime, and keep healing with Med Kit.

During fights, try to always finish Mace auto-attack chain for barrier and Alacrity application and keep generating your boons.

Keep in mind your Mech skills can be interrupted by querying different skills. For example, it’s very easy to interrupt a long, channeled cast of Barrier Burst with any of the other Mech skills or Rocket Fist Prototype if you are not aware it will trigger Rocket Punch due to Mech Fighter interaction.

Mech:

Utilities and mace:

Remember it is not just you giving Boons! It’s also the Mech! Make use of Shift Signet to reposition your Mech if necessary for optimal boon application. Use it before queuing Barrier Burst, otherwise, it will interrupt the cast.

You only need to use Med Kit abilities when your group needs healing.
A big weakness here is the very limited range for your heals. Make sure you stay close to the group when in Med Kit.

Self-sustain:

You have compared to Healscrapper significantly less self-sustain, but that doesn’t mean there is none.

Note: Shift Signet is not just a mobility skill, but also a stun break and condition cleanse on you and your Mech!

On every encounter without a toughness tank you can run Minstrel to increase your survivability, should you struggle with that.
