This offensive support build can provide a group with Might, Fury, Quickness, Protection, Swiftness. The wide range of core boons this build provides makes it excellent for filling gaps in groups.

Combined with very simple rotation and excellent defensive abilities, it’s a very good introductory build – offering very strong Crowd Control from Surge of the Mists and Stability when using Legendary Dwarf Stance instead Legendary Assassin Stance.

Build Fundamentals

The main idea behind Power Quickness Herald is to constantly spam Legendary Dragon Stance skills and their active components to provide boons from Draconic Echo while maintaining Facet of Nature for some additional strong raid wide support!

Once boons are provided in Legendary Dragon Stance you will be swapping to Legendary Assassin Stance, activating Impossible Odds and auto-attacking with fitting in Chilling Isolation between chains.

Remember to swap legends before you run out of energy because if you run out, yourFacet of Nature will automatically disable and you’ll have to reactivate it after a few seconds. 

Some of your facets have very powerful active effects and are not just for boon application, because of this you may want to delay using the active parts of them in order to use their utility.

  • Facet of Light Infuse Light: incredible heal skill that converts all incoming damage to healing, essentially allowing the revenant to ignore almost all incoming attacks (including one shot attacks) for a short period of time.
  • Facet of Darkness Gaze of Darkness: Short cooldown stunbreak ability.
  • Facet of Chaos Chaotic Release: Powerful control effect, launches foes for large defiance bar damage and applies superspeed to yourself and allies which is great for mobility.

Facet of Nature

Facet of Nature provides a powerful effect depending on which legend you are currently channeling (what stance you are in) to up to 10 nearby targets (including the revenant), here are the effects:

  • Legendary Assassin Stance: grants lifesteal on attacks with a half second cooldown, this adds a significant amount of damage per second and some minor sustain.
  • Legendary Dwarf Stance: 10% strike damage reduction. Very strong when combined with Protection and damage reduction food.
  • Legendary Dragon Stance: 20% boon duration, this is additive and can go above the 100% cap. Meaning that players with 100% boon duration will end up with 120% boon duration when affected. This is excellent for preventing boons applied by yourself and other players from dropping off. Makes your allies better at the game!

Just like other facets, Facet of Nature also has a consume skill called True Nature. Just like the passive facet effect, True Nature also has a different effect depending on what legend you cast it in!

Legendary Centaur Stance has some niche uses too, usually, it’s taken for Protective Solace but Facet of Nature will additionally pulse a heal every three seconds, which even without healing power is quite strong – 471 hit points. This scales very well with healing power too, 100 healing power adds another 40 heal. True Nature used in this stance removes two conditions from you and nearby allies, and heals for each condition removed.

A lot of the time you’ll be getting more value out of the passive from Facet of Nature rather than the True Nature active ability, but True Nature is powerful situationally, especially in Legendary Dwarf Stance and Legendary Assassin Stance. The cooldown on Facet of Nature isn’t that long so if you do need to use a True Nature ability then you won’t lose too much uptime on the passives!

Crowd Control

Alternatives

Legends

If you need Stability, swap out Legendary Assassin Stance to Legendary Dwarf Stance for Inspiring Reinforcement. Vengeful Hammers should be maintained in Legendary Dwarf Stance for extra damage and durability while you don’t need to use energy for Stability.
