    Introduction

    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 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

    While in Legendary Dragon Stance, activate Facet of Chaos and Facet of Darkness to pulse Quickness. While in Legendary Assassin Stance keep Impossible Odds active for damage and Quickness.

    Herald applies Quickness via Elevated Compassion whenever you channel an ability that drains 6 or more energy per second (upkeep). Whenever your energy is being drained, you pulse Quickness around you.

    Build Specifics

    Power Quickness Herald provides many boons with Legendary Dragon Stance and can extend all boons on allies with True Nature.

    Chaotic Release should be cast around halfway into Legendary Dragon Stance so that it will be off-cooldown for the next loop.

    Maintain facets while in Legendary Dragon Stance to generate a substantial amount of Might for you and your subgroup via Shared Empowerment.

    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.

    Sigils

    Legends

    If you need Stability, swap out Legendary Assassin Stance for:

    Legendary Centaur Stance has some niche uses:

    When using these Legends it may be ideal to stay on Legendary Dragon Stance longer than the rotation suggests, and to only swap to Legendary Dwarf Stance or Legendary Centaur Stance once their utility is needed.
