Heal Quickness Herald is a powerful support build that reliably provides 25 Might, Fury, Protection, Regeneration, Swiftness, and Quickness in a large radius. This build provides strong sustain and burst healing and can serve as an excellent tank.

Additionally, Herald extends boon duration for your allies, has very strong crowd control abilities, and can be adapted to apply Stability.

Boon Application

While in Legendary Dragon Stance, use all utility facets (Facet of Darkness, Facet of Strength and Facet of Elements) and their respective consume abilities off-cooldown to provide Fury, Might, Swiftness thanks to Draconic Echo. Maintain Facet of Light and Facet of Chaos for Regeneration and Protection.

Generate Might by blasting Searing Fissure (or any fire field) with Echoing Eruption on Mace/Shield, and by utilizing a powerful synergy between Spiritual Reckoning, Vicious Reprisal, and Shared Empowerment:

When starting an encounter or swapping into Legendary Dragon Stance, activate Facet of Nature to grant a special bonus to you and your allies depending on your current Legend. Using Facet of Nature while channeling Legendary Dragon Stance grants an extra 20% boon duration, over-capping your total boon duration to 220%!

Facet of Nature's consume skill, True Nature, provides support utility based on your current Legend:

You’ll typically use the Legendary Dragon Stance version of True Nature in the boon application rotation. If you anticipate needing a different effect, delay consuming Facet of Nature to use a more appropriate version of True Nature.

Healing

Heal Quickness Herald has incredibly strong sustain healing from the following effects:

Legendary Centaur Stance summons a tablet that can be moved with Ventari's Will. This tablet features two powerhouse healing abilities: Natural Harmony easily heals up to five targets for over 10,000 hit points after a short delay. Purifying Essence removes up to three conditions from five targets, and heals for each condition removed. Take advantage of the short cooldowns of these skills.

The first Legendary Centaur Stance ability you cast after casting Project Tranquility (summoning the tablet) will be empowered for an even stronger effect. In the case of Natural Harmony, empowerment will generate an additional 25% healing, making your first heal after swapping into Legendary Centaur Stance truly gigantic when combined with Invoking Harmony.

The tablet allows you to be in two places at once. Sustain nearby allies using your Staff, Shield, and passive healing while using the tablet to heal allies who are further away handling mechanics.

Tanking

Heal Quickness Herald is an excellent choice for tanking because of Facets’ large boon radius and the ability to heal distant targets with Legendary Centaur Stance.

Your key defensives are Warding Rift, Crystal Hibernation, and Infuse Light. These powerful tanking tools allow you to mitigate incoming damage without having to move, so you can keep bosses in position.

For most situations, you’ll be able to stay on Staff and sustain yourself with Auto-attack chains, Mender's Rebuke and Renewing Wave while utilizing Warding Rift to block key abilities. If you need an additional block, swap to Shield for Crystal Hibernation.

Infuse Light is useful for damage mitigation and self-sustain. Feel free to activate Infuse Light and deliberately get hit by as much damage as you can to get fully healed.

If you want more survivability, take Resilient Spirit for passive barrier. If you need to be completely immortal, take Unyielding Devotion for even more survivability at the cost of healing output. A full Givers setup is also an option to become a tanking god.

Utility

Protective Solace creates a projectile destruction field (not a reflect) around Ventari’s Tablet. Reposition the tablet as needed to either block the attacks at the source or shield your team by placing the bubble on them!

Energy Expulsion knocks down nearby foes and applies Resistance to nearby allies, allowing you to nullify debilitating conditions, including Fear.

Chaotic Release is a key boon ability and has a strong knockback that can manipulate the position of non-defiant enemies. It also applies Superspeed which can help allies reposition.

Inspiring Reinforcement applies Stability in a line, and can affect more than 5 players if they are spread out along the line.

Rite of the Great Dwarf reduces strike damage and stacks with Protection. This buff mitigates almost all incoming strike damage to your party.

Crowd Control

Alternatives

Swap Shield for Axe if you need more crowd control from Temporal Rift.

Swap out Legendary Centaur Stance for Legendary Dwarf Stance if you need Stability from Inspiring Reinforcement. Healing is still possible without Legendary Centaur Stance, but you will rely more on weapon skills, Regeneration, and Generous Abundance.
