I mostly play my necromancer and the healing I get from parasitic contagion is great. I have been thinking about playing a greatsword power chronomancer and was wondering how good the sustain can be and how it matches up to parasitic contagion when traited for it. Does the combination of shatter + restorative illusions heal a lot ?
I know most people would say that I don't need sustain for open world because of dodges, etc but I am the ultimate casual player and am very slow at reacting. For example, I die a lot of times during the Dragon's Stand / Tangled Depths meta events as a condi shortbow ranger because I have no good passive healing.
What other ranged options are there with good healing ? I would prefer something that can do decent dps as well which means that I would not like to try for example a bow thief or a rifle warrior assuming they deal very low dps.
