    Heal Quickness Herald is a powerful defensive support build that reliably provides 25 , , , , , and 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, has access on shield and can be adapted to apply .

    Boon Application

    While in Legendary Dragon Stance, maintain Facets to apply boons:

    Facet of Darkness applies
    Facet of Strength gives
    Facet of Elements grants
    Facet of Light applies
    Facet of Chaos pulses

    While in Legendary Dragon StanceFacet of Nature has the unique effect of giving your group an additional 20% boon duration. This extra boon duration can extend the normal cap of 100% boon duration to 120%!

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

    Legendary Centaur Stance True Nature: Removes two conditions from allies and heals for each condition removed. Can be used for emergency cleansing, but usually Purifying Essence and Renewing Wave should suffice.
    Legendary Dragon Stance True Nature: Extends boons on you and allies by 2 seconds. Use this before using your final set of Facets before leaving Legendary Dragon Stance to extend boons and generate even more .

    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 & Build Specifics

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

    The 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.

    Energy Expulsion will shatter the tablet after a short delay, healing nearby allies and knockdown nearby enemies for Crowd Control. Use Project Tranquility to resummon the tablet in order to use other Ventari skills again.

    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.

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

    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 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.

    Crowd Control

    • Chaotic Release
    • Surge of the Mists – This skill is capable of hitting the same target multiple times quickly disposing of breakbars.
    • Energy Expulsion – This ability has a very short cooldown. If you pool energy or simply don’t spend energy, you can use this in quick succession for massive crowd control.

    Alternatives

    If you don’t own the Secrets of the Obscure expansion, fear not! This build doesn’t need a Scepter from the Weapon Mastery, simply swap it out for a Mace.
