What the a "good" support build hsould have
1.) Support, help the group, buff the group, heal the group, make the group as good as you possibly can by simply being there
2.) DPS, this game requires you be able to hurt things,
3.) Take hits: It's inevitable, even if you dodge like a jackrabbit, being able to take a shot to the face is important.
What I came up with:
Utilities: Dolyak Signet, Banner of strength, Banner of Defense. Battle Standard
Healing: Healing signet
25 arms (Deep Cuts, Forceful greatsword)
20 Toughness (Last stand, sure-footed)
30 Tactics: (Inspiring battle standard, Inspiring banners, Empowered allies)
Breaking it down to each of the 3
90 toughness/vit/power/cond damage from banners
Fury, might, and swiftness constantly from the banners.
AOE revive from battle standard.
70 power from Empowered allies
AoE healing from each banner thanks to Inspiring BAttle standard
AoE might when I revive, which I do a lot, and very well thanks to the tacticsm inors
Furious greatsword, might every time I crit -- Building precision/cond/toughness in that order, i'll crit a lot. 30% boon duration from 30 tactics says i'll have a large number of stacks when coupled with battle standard
Precise strikes -- see above, crit a lot, deep cuts means htey last 50% longer. even without deep cuts in the current build I can manage 5-7 stacks on a good day, so.. plenty of passive "oomph" to be had, also Rifle bleeds.
290 toughness 390 vit from talents/banners
Last stand for a free balanced stance when weaving into melee.
Healing signet, Adrenalized healed, inspiring battle standard should give TONS of regen, seeing as arcing slash is kind of a "eh" adrenaline dump with battle standard up.
Dolyak signet doing.. whatever it does.
Inspiring battle standard, not sure if the heal is worht those last 5 points, I could go 25/20/25 and get 10% more damage since they'll always be bleeding, always.
Dolyak signet: stabilityi s nice, but.. damage reduction worth it over say.. Balance stance? giving me two pops of it (one from last stand which iirc is on a sepeate cooldown, one from normal use)
Anyhow, comments? YOU ARE DIONG IT WRONG's, etc?
