Healing Herald For Raids/Fractals


Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

I main boon druid for raids and I wanted to try something different. I've always like herald spite most peoples negative opinion haha. I was looking at SnowCrow's Healing Herald build. From what I see it appears to be decent. I was wondering other peoples opinions on using a healing herald as a second healer in raids.

Thanks! :)

Short answer is not where it counts.

Long answer, renegade has the ability to provide 100% uptime on might and alacrity. Alacrity in particular is extremely useful for a group and can only be provided alternatively by chrono. Both can provide near 100% uptime on protection. Herald provides fury and reg, but these are highly common boons. No one is going to run herald for these.

Herald with elite facet and renegade with a trait that grants allies protection when you summon a warband member. With full harrier and monk runes it is ~7.5s for each warband member. As a healer you always use heal and elite warband member so that is ~15s of protection and since you swap legends of cd you can reapeat it every 18 seconds.

Oh, that really does put this into perspective for me, I see your point. Okay, I will go to Healing Ren then. :) Thank you, everyone, for your opinion!

Thank you, everyone, for your opinions. I'm kind of torn, I was speaking with one of my static members. They said to go, Herald, because no one takes healing Ren for alacrity because they will normally have a DPS/Ren for that. So they suggest Healing Herald. I'm split lol on which one to go for across the board like PVE/Fractals/Raids/Etc.
