    Introduction

    Heal Alacrity Mechanist is a defensive support that provides permanent Alacrity, Regeneration, Protection, Fury, Vigor, and 25 stacks of Might to a subgroup. This build provides sustained Barrier generation and good healing output.

    Build Fundamentals

    Use Energizing Slam off-cooldown to generate Barrier, Alacrity, Vigor and Regeneration for your group. Use Elixir Gun's Acid Bomb and Super Elixir, and Elite Mortar Kit's Elixir Shell off-cooldown to provide Might and healing.

    The Mech applies boons around itself: Control its positioning to be near the group at all times.

    Build Specifics

    This build has a lot of useful trait interactions, such as:

    Use Energizing Slam and Infusion Bomb off-cooldown for permanent Vigor and Regeneration.

    Cancel the backward leap animation of Acid Bomb by pressing Weapon Swap.

    If your Mech is disobedient, use Explosive Knuckle or Shift Signet to quickly reposition it to the target or group.

    Use Blast Finishers inside Water Fields for extra Area Healing. Blast Finishers inside Light Fields can be used to cleanse conditions.

    Here is a non-exhaustive list of useful Blast Finishers:
