This build has strong sustain healing, excellent barrier output, very strong crowd control effects, 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, make sure to always finish mace auto-attack chains for moreAlacrity, and to stack a lot of passive barrier on your team whenever you aren’t using other skills.

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 Barrier Burst, otherwise, it will interrupt the cast.

The range of your healing is very limited. Ensure you stay close to the group when in Med Kit.

Self-sustain:

  • Soothing Detonation will trigger a small heal whenever you use any of the Mech abilities.
  • Health Insurance means that you get an extra 10% incoming healing from yourself and your allies.
  • Barrier is a key to sustaining yourself on this build as shutting down incoming damage is even better than healing after taking damage!
  • Use Static Shield to mitigate incoming damage
  • Use your mobility to get out of danger! Energizing Slam and Shift Signet are perfect¬†for that.

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

Gear Stats

If you need to tank you can swap your gear to givers attributes for massive toughness without sacrificing boon duration. If you want to go for even more survivability throw on a few minstrel pieces but make sure to keep your boon duration close to 100% by replacing your Superior Sigil of Paralyzation with a Superior Sigil of Concentration or concentration infusions if needed.
