Healing

Healing in Legendary Centaur Stance:

  1. Ventari's Will
  2. Natural Harmony

Healing in Legendary Dragon Stance:

  1. Facet of LightInfuse Light while damaged by hands

Every time when swapping to Legendary Dragon Stance activate all Facets and use all utility actives:

  1. Gaze of Darkness
  2. Burst of Strength
  3. Elemental Blast

Handkite Herald is one of the simpler builds to kite “hands” mechanic during a final boss fight in Wing 4: Deimos allowing you to fully outheal and partially block and mitigate Hands damage. This build does not see play anywhere outside Deimos’ encounter.

Build fundamentals

Mind Crush: Always remember to have Crystal Hibernation to protect yourself from Mind Crush. Alternatively, you can use Warding Rift or Facet of LightInfuse Light.

Stacking hands

With Warding Rift  you can block every other stack of hands. Because Hands are spawning in groups of 5 with a longer break between them, you should use Warding Rift after 2nd hands spawn and block 3 subsequent ticks.

If your Warding Rift is on cooldown you can keep stacking hands by triggering Facet of LightInfuse Light and getting healed by the damage, or if that too is on cooldown, simply Dodge trying to time it so you’ll actually evade hands attack.

Healing and barrier

In Legendary Dragon Stance activate all Facets and instantly use 3 utility actives: Gaze of Darkness, Burst of Strength, Elemental Blast, but keep Infuse Light and Chaotic Release pulsing as long as possible, this will give you most Barrier with Resilient Spirit.

In Legendary Centaur Stance you can heal yourself with Ventari's Will and Natural Harmony, and if your squad needs active healing, you can take Unyielding Devotion and move your tablet through the group for additional damage reduction on yourself.

Alternatives

Food

You can use any damage reduction food you want, any additional Healing or Concentration stats you might get with that will be helpful.
