Power Quickness Herald is an offensive support build that provides a group with Might, Fury, Quickness, Protection, and Swiftness. The wide range of essential boons provided makes this build excellent for filling gaps in groups.

A very simple rotation and excellent defensive abilities make Power Quickness Herald a good introductory choice for new players. This build also offers strong Crowd Control via Surge of the Mists and the option to provide Stability by using Legendary Dwarf Stance instead of Legendary Assassin Stance.

Build Fundamentals

Power Quickness Herald provides boons by combining Draconic Echo with consistent usage of Legendary Dragon Stance skills and their active components. This build also extends boon duration with True Nature (the active of Facet of Nature in Legendary Dragon Stance). Make sure to apply boons (especially Quickness) before using True Nature or the skill won’t do anything.

Note: True Nature will apply Quickness but the boon extension happens before Draconic Echo activates so if you haven’t already applied Quickness to yourself and allies it will not be extended, which is significantly detrimental to uptime. 

Once boons are provided in Legendary Dragon Stance, swap to Legendary Assassin Stance, activate Impossible Odds, and auto-attack, fitting Chilling Isolation between auto-attack chains.

Some Facets have very powerful active effects beyond boon application. As such, you may want to delay using their actives to maximize their impact:

Facet of Nature

Facet of Nature provides a powerful effect to yourself and allies depending on your current Legend:

Just like other facets, Facet of Nature also has a consume skill called True Nature.

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.

Legendary Centaur Stance has some niche uses: Usually, it’s taken for Protective Solace but Facet of Nature also pulses a heal every three seconds. True Nature used in this stance removes two conditions from you and nearby allies, and heals for each condition removed.
