Burst healing

  1. Tome of Resolve
  2. Epilogue: Eternal Oasis first to increase your healing
  3. Chapter 4:Shining River for big aoe heal
  4. Chapter 2:Igniting Burst if affected by conditions
  5. Chapter 1:Desert Bloom is spammable
  6. Additionally:
    1. Holy Strike
    2. Empower
    3. Bow of Truth
    4. Shield of Absorption

Using your Dodge heals allies around you as well.

Condition cleansing

  1. Mantra of Lore
  2. Holy Strike in the Light field from Line of Warding/Symbol of Vengeance
  3. Chapter 2:Igniting Burst in Tome of Resolve is strong, party-wide cleanse with additional healing
  4. Epilogue: Eternal Oasis will convert conditions to boons

Heal Firebrand is a build that can provide permanent Quickness, Fury, Swiftness, and <25 stacks of Might to the party which makes it a very popular pick amongst healers. It has access to lots of Stability, condition cleanses, and Aegis.

Virtues variant runs the Virtues traitline and offers reduced cooldown on all tomes such as Tome of Courage for additional support capabilities. The traitline also improves the passive effect of Tome of Resolve and distributes it to the party for additional heals.

Signet Share variant runs the Radiance which sacrifices a bit of healing and reduced cooldown on tomes in order to boost group damage via Signet of Wrath and/or Bane Signet. If used, Bane Signet is also a nice boost to the crowd control abilities of the build.

Build Fundamentals

Stand behind and face your allies when using your Mantra of Solace, Mantra of Potence, Mantra of Lore, and Shield of Judgment as those skills affect targets in the cone where you are facing. All your Mantra skills are instant cast so you can use them during the casting of other skills like Empower or Shield of Absorption.

For Quickness use Mantra of Solace, Mantra of Potence and "Feel My Wrath!" . Do not spam your Mantra of Solace as it only applies Quickness once every 7 seconds.

Mantra of Lore for Regeneration but keep at least 1 charge for cleansing conditions on your allies.

To provide boons and healing to your party use Empower, Symbol of Vengeance, and Symbol of Swiftness.

And finally, buff your party’s DPS whenever you can with Epilogue: Ashes of the Just in Tome of Justice.

Damage mitigation

Share Aegis with Shield of Judgment or provide Stability, Aegis, and damage reduction with Tome of Courage, but be aware of using Epilogue: Unbroken Lines if the tank is in another subgroup and has low Toughness as you increase the Toughness of your party.

You can reflect projectiles with Chapter 3: Valiant Bulwark in Tome of Courage or block them with Shield of Absorption.

CC (Crowd Control)

Alternatives

Utility Skills

You can replace Bow of Truth with:

Alternatively, you can replace Mantra of Lore with any of the skills mentioned above if you don’t need condition cleanse or to provide Regeneration for your party yourself.

If running Optimized variant, replace Bane Signet with Signet of Wrath if you don’t need CC and your party has more condition dps classes than power dps classes.

Traits

You can replace Pure of Heart for Honorable Staff in Honor traitline if your party is lacking Might.

Weapons

In rare cases, or if learning Firebrand, you might want to change Axe to Mace for additional healing from auto-attacks (Faithful Strike), Regeneration from Symbol of Faith and Protection and Aegis from Protector's Strike. But keep in mind you will loose some of the Fury uptime and often valuable pull.
