Skill usage

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 – swap one of your utility skills to this if there is heavy condition pressure
  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.

Axe variant offers permanent Fury uptime coupled with slightly higher personal DPS. It has access to Blazing Edge which can be used to pull groups of enemies towards the group or for overall CC.

Mace variant sacrifices permanent Fury uptime in order to gain easier access to Regeneration via Symbol of Faith which can free up a utility slot. You’ll have access to more sustained healing through Faithful Strike. Protector's Strike is a reactive skill that can be used defensively to block attacks and grant additional Aegis to the party. It must be noted that this variant still has access to significant uptime of Fury thanks to "Feel My Wrath!". However it is still important to make sure you have another source of Fury in your subgroup to ensure permanent uptime of this boon.

Build Fundamentals

Stand behind and face your allies when using your Mantra skill 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!". Keep in mind that your Mantra of Solace as it only applies Quickness once every 7 seconds due to Liberator's Vow.

Apply Regeneration with Mantra of Lore, but keep at least 1 charge for cleansing conditions on your allies, if you are running Mace, your Symbol of Faith  is another excellent Regeneration source.

To provide boons and healing to your party use Empower, Symbol of Vengeance (Axe), Symbol of Faith (Mace), 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. Mace variant allows you to more freely spam Aegis with Protector's Strike and "Advance!".

Because you can’t offer permanent Protection, try to time your Shield of Judgment to reduce direct damage pressure when needed, Axe variant offers some (but unreliable) Protection with Protector's Restoration, while with Mace you’ll have much easier time with Protection with Protector's Strike.

When facing a condition pressure, Tome of Resolve offers multiple cleanses, you can also use Holy Strike in the Light field from Line of Warding/Symbol of Vengeance/Symbol of Faith. To cancel out movement-impairing conditions without sacrificing Tome of Resolve, use Chapter 4: Stalwart Stand in Tome of Courage.

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

Skills

You can replace Bow of Truth (if you can give up healing), Mantra of Lore/Symbol of Faith with:

To be an absolute Stability beast, you can take Mantra of Liberation as your elite skill for some fights such as Kaineng Overlook CM. This however has the downside of relying only on Mantras for quickness generation so make sure you are positioning yourself correctly. You can also opt to use Stalwart Speed which will result in same Quickness uptime on paper – 20% less uptime from mantras vs. 4s of Quickness every 20s from Mantra of Liberation. The trait can still help you achieve better uptimes due to more frequent applications of Quickness in general. You can also proc Stalwart Speed more often with skills such as "Stand Your Ground!", "Advance!" and Shield of Courage.
