Builds available for alac scourge?

It's certainly viable, but really only works on fights where you can maintain a tight stack.  For example, it's difficult to work in Silent Surf, but should work like a dream in Vale Guardian (haven't actually played it there yet).

 

It has three main variants: heal-alac-barrier, alacDPS, and hybrid support/dps.

Heal-alac-barrier uses Harriers gear, Blood Magic, Soul Reaping, and Scourge (duh) and has the most leeway for mechanics while also providing 100% protection, regeneration, might, and fury, plus strong condition cleanse and barriers.  You get 100% alac uptime with just placing a shade and using Sandstorm Shroud when the later's cooldown is available, which gives it more opportunity to focus on supporting allies.

AlacDPS can do it in pure Vipers after this week's patch, but it is very tight on timings.  Not recommended until you are very comfortable with the build.

Hybrid is where you go with Ritualist gear for more boon investment.  It might spec Blood Magic for the extra revive capability, but typically doesn't have much healing power.

Base on my testing. Hybrid is okay with 30-40% boon duration and 100% alac uptime.  That means allowing celestials plus plaguedoctors. 700 + healing power is enough for most encounters.
