Shroud.2307 Posted March 18, 2021 Share Posted March 18, 2021 Build here.I always liked Elder's Respite, but never felt it was much worth taking over Core Value or Rising Momentum (and I mean it still isn't really, but for the sake of this build I wanted to do something with it). Remembering Dwayna runes and that they also grant +20% Regen effectiveness, I got to thinking about it. With Battle Scars granting a moderate amount of Life Siphon, and being favored in PvP for the added sustain, maybe some strengthened Regen would make it more desirable in WvW where damage is higher.So to explain a little about it,-it has +40% Regen effectiveness, Regen lingers for some time after swapping out of Glint if you camp Infuse Light (which you want to do with this to maintain Regen), and with stacks of Battle Scars + other Siphons like Enchanted Daggers and/or True Nature - Assassin, you get some pretty significant sustained healing. Regen ticks for nearly 300 on top of Siphons every hit, so with everything going you can be getting up to 400 or more healing per tick. I'm able to Unrelenting Assault and get back something like 5k health.The Healing infusions aren't entirely necessary, just preference, but they do add a moderate amount of effectiveness to the Regen.I find the loss in damage of taking Healing stat runes over an offensive option like Strength to be negligible in exchange for the sustain you get.
