I just took some time to think about an shield skill again, since these Skills of the herald seem a little odd and kinda weak/out of place.
Together with many people wanting skills that work a lot more like the trident etc., i thought of an " Envoy of Exuberance", thats giving boons depending in its active legend (and not those tiny bit of protection).
So here is what ive thought of.
Envoy of Exuberance:
Release a burst of energy that heals allies and grants Boons based on the active Legend.
Would be happy to see Comments to this Idea, doesnt matter if critism, the Opposite or other ideas to polish this idea.
