Support class and tagging enemies

Torque.7043Torque.7043 Member

Been playing for a couple months and have a fully unlocked druid, scorge, and firebrand. I like to play support, and have tried all. I like scorge, but wanted to mix it up and try others. I didn't like that I couldn't figure out how to do my job as fb or druid and still tag enemies. It seems like support classes should get some kind of contribution credit and points for heals since they can't tag stuff. Or is there a good way to tag stuff while healing your brains out too? Druid seemed like I could do that kinda, but not firebrand which seems like a better healer supporter.

Is there a good way to tag enemies while still doing great healing?

    There really isn't a great way without sacrificing your support. The best you can do is know when your group won't need support and switch to dropping AoE damage but that's hard to do with a pug group. My guild's DPS would always donate a portion of their bags to the support to make up for that but that doesn't really help the issue.

    No longer playing the game due to PvP being abandon.

    If you're playing FB properly, you should get adequate bags from retal and reflect. I usually get like 60-70% of the bag amount our DPS get. If you're trying to play support Druid for squad play in 2019, I don't know what to tell you.


  • Do you mean that druid should have that problem?

    They mean that druid is worthless in wvw as support because it has bad heal uptime, no boon spam, bad condi cleanses and no valuable utility like meta supports.

    You really shouldn't have any problems tagging ppl as a support FB. Just go Justice Tome and tag everything.

    I don't have a problem tagging enemies what so ever playing firebrand. Retal and tome 1 does all the tagging I need to be doing for me.

    Firebrand - Wall of Reflection, Reflect domes in courage tome, spirit sword, use staff.
    Scorge - Wells, staff, shades that arent the big one.
    Druid - Staff auto a enemy deep in the zerg so your staff tags multiple players in a line, Strafe left and right while doing this and keep your staff 2 on cooldown.

    my bags are always full on guard. just give everyone boons. if those who get boons kill the enemy, profit.

    the amount of retal that happens, its imposible not to make bags. <3
