Vindicator is the elite specialization for Revenant and is a highly effective support in any squad.  Support Vindicator should not be a direct replacement for all of the scrapper’s, but compliment them allowing two to four per squad.

Build Fundamentals

The build is best described as a Healer and condition cleanser that offers support to players that are on and off of tag. Vindicator is able to easily provide huge heals,  cleanses, barrier and some boons either over time or in a burst.  However where it really shines is in it’s ability to heal and it can also do this from 900 range on a very short cooldown.  Vindicator still has access to legends as normal however you will mainly be camping only one, Saint Viktor.  Managing energy, understanding the build and rotating skills correctly will help you successfully support players when needed.

Main Priorities

Staying alive should be prioritized above all else, and luckily support vindicator has alot of survivability.  So much that you may not even need to use your dodge for yourself. You can help to keep your HP above zero through tactful use of energy management, skill usage, positioning and timing.  In terms of positioning you will want to stay slightly behind the commander tag, this allows you to more reliably land your support skills on either the main group or players off tag or in the tail.  Being able to see behind you and in front at all times will give you a huge advantage in carrying your team.  Supporting players off of tag is not a priority unless they are in your party, but you can assist them if you have the energy. Burst healing and cleansing them with Tree Song could ensure they get back to the group safely.

Rotating Tree Song your Heal skill Selfless Spirit Elite URN OF SAINT VIKTOR (shortcode?) and dodges will be your priority.  Thanks to the following traits Healer's Gift Eluding Nullification Fortified Blessing Invigorating Dismissal Song of Arboreum Saint of zu Heltzer these will help you cleanse, heal, barrier and provide boons to your team.  Ranged skills to prioritize are Rite of the Great Dwarf Inspiring Reinforcement and AWAKENING (shortcode?) this should only be used in an emergency.

(TIP) Rotation of skills can be flexible but you basically want to always use off of cooldown dodge, Tree Song weapon swap and Energy Meld an example can be seen above (top right).


Weapon Skills

Some of your weapon skills have strong support utility and have relatively short cool downs. Timing is key when to use them and understanding how to use them effectively will help your groups sustain.

Mender's Rebuke Smash the ground in front of you to damage foes. After a delay, allies in the area are healed. Heals for more if an enemy was struck. Any time you are not hitting other skills, you should be using menders rebuke to keep allies HP topped up.

Warding Rift Create a rift from the Mists that blocks incoming attacks. When the rift closes it blinds 3 foes in front of you. You only want to use this in an emergency if you need to use it to survive.

Renewing Wave  Within a 300 radius release a burst of Mists energy that heals and removes conditions from allies. Create a healing orb for each ally that loses conditions. This skill is also a blast finisher! Use this skill if you should need a burst heal and more cleanse.

Surge of the Mists Charge forward 600 range, knocking back enemies.  Due to it having a 1 second evade this can great tool to survive, but should only be used in an emergency.

Legendary Saint Viktor

As explained previously this legend is your main priority out of the two and you will be camping it in order to prioritize the skill Tree Song .  When using any saint viktor skill thanks to the trait Amnesty of Shing Jea you will also apply regeneration.

Tree Song Priority number one, use this to grant regeneration and cleanse 5 conditions from allies from 900 range, healing them for each condition removed. Gain endurance for each affected ally, and gain additional endurance for each condition removed.  This has the potential to burst heal for up to 11k on a single player but it can effect 5!  This can be used to support the main stack or far players from your group that needs cleanse and burst heals. (TIP) It may also be used on down stated / downed players to buy time for essential resurrection banners.

Selfless Spirit Channel and pulse heals to allies within a 240 radius. Use this skill on its own or while pulsing your elite Urn to recover or keep your squad’s HP above 90%-full.

Urn of Saint Viktor (shortcode?) (Elite)  Become the Urn of Saint Viktor, is an upkeep skill and costs -5 energy to pulse heal nearby allies within 240 radius. You do take -50% damage while in this state and move 50% faster, but you cannot be healed so use it wisely.  Be careful should you need to put it away to either regain energy or receive personal heals as it has a cast time!

Awakening (shortcode?) A 600 radius break stun for you and should only be used as an emergency.  You may also use this to support and stun break nearby allies but it is not your priority.

Battle Dance Evade backward, granting resistance and regen to allies.  Only use in an emergency if needed.


Legendary Dwarf Stance 

Dwarf stance has one of the best group defensive utilities with Rite of the Great Dwarf . This grants allies strong damage mitigation on range spikes when combined with Inspiring Reinforcement Open the fight with this stance from range and then swap to Saint Viktor.  Example of a rotation can be found above (top right)

Inspiring Reinforcement Create a stone road that damages and weakens foes on cast. Once it’s created it will pulse 5 times, granting stability to allies within its 900 range.

Rite of the Great Dwarf  (Elite) Channel the power of the great dwarf to coat yourself and allies within 600 radius in stone armour, reducing incoming damage by 50%!  also Breaks Stun should you need to use it in an emergency.
