Would you use this armor? It's Power / Precision / Healing Power and it is new to the 21st of this month. I could see myself trying it out maybe on a warrior on something. Your thoughts?

I am sure that someone can think of a Ele build around that armor.

zerk or gtfo....

ok seriously. I would love to try it but atm Healing power scales really bad right now so it's not even worth it. if they revamp the system and make healing power worth while and give Heals a chance to crit as well. then sure I'd go for it.

It's like the giver armor, you use it to level up armorsmith to 500. That's pretty much it.

If it wasn't so stupidly difficult to build I would use it on my Engineer.

It sure beats Cleric's, but it doesn't make healing power as a stat any more effective or attractive.

I don't think that alone can be good on anything. Maybe some eles can mix it with other gear.

I'm still sticking with berserker. I couldn't see any of my toons needing added healing power.

Nah... Pretty satisfied with my (nonexistent) performance with Clerics. Who needs Precision?! Not ol' Desild, that's who.

Plus, no Ascended Trinkets or Rings. LAME!

That really depends on what I'm doing.

By default I always take Pure Voice and a heavy shout build, to manage the conditions on my party, and have all my Symbols healing passively. If I'm doing CoE or anything that has my team stacking, I take 0/0/30/30/10 and pick Altruistic healer. Usually with Healing Breeze.

If it's Arah or a more straight forward dungeon, I go slightly more offensive with a 0/10/30/30/0, with Signet of Resolve and Signet of Judgment. Passive condition removing and all that. For Fractals I take 0/0/20/30/20 for extra boon duration and Stability when I activate Resolve. Which also serves as a heal party in a pinch.

I'm trying Apoth/Settler's on my Ranger, but I don't see trying HP on any of my other toons, present or future.  In fact I just put a recipe of the TP for crafting a box of light Zealot's armor.  Encouraged even further when I realized the only thing tradeable about Zealot's is the recipes themselves.  So while it's great to be able to create a full armor set with a single recipe, I can't imagine myself ever doing it.  I'd rather have the 2.5g (if it sells).

I have an idea to "fix" healing power, which I might post on a different thread.  It's kind of a joke that ANet emphasizes NOT having dedicating healing being part of the game, then puts healing power into it as a stat.

They can nerf berserker all they want, still won't make healing power viable in PvE. GW2 PvE is and will always be a dps race.

Maybe some rangers roamers could use this stats. With regen build, and quite huge amount of different sources of regen types it could work.

Actually this will be the set I take with my necromancer now. I run a minion/lifesteal build with sigils of blood. Basically high minion damage, constant lifesteal (including from minions) and a little exta lifesteal on crits. With the upcoming changes to necro traits and skills I suddenly find myself in need of healing power, even though my vitality will now take a hit and I'll be a little less tanky. Still; no self-respecting "vampire" will go into battle without powerful lifestealing abilities.
