    Now all we need is Mr. Tawny, "Shazam's" ally! :cool:

    Holy smash...

    So, this 2nd passive looks be potentially devastating towards enemies from a Clarion battle healer...

    Example: if my restoration is boosted from demon fang (from having a shield up) and is boosted from the 2nd passive, does Arion's might take all that extra restoration into it's calculation for the damage boost?

    Hmm.. I think it will be difficult to use since it can be negated with a priority or group heal. I can see the "issues" this passive will have if 2 healers are in a group and one has this passive equipped and the other healer is using priority/group heals as part of their normal rotation. A battle healer would hardly benefit from this passive with another healer in a group or another player casting group heals from another source. This passive literally says "One healer per group," in my opinion.

    great been waiting for this one, first ally I have been excited about. like all three ability's he has and looking forward to seeing which works best in which situation

    Wait, does the stack reset if ANYONE in the group uses a priority or group heal? I had assumed it would be limited to the player using that power, since there would be no way to control for other players’ rotations.

    So if we don’t have group or priority in our load out we will have that boost infinitely evil smirk :)

    Yes, my curiosity is for just one healer in a group. For example, battle healing with Clarion, demon fang, trans, with Celestial power, I never use priority heal or group heal anyway. I also don't use them on my electric battle healer. I'm basically looking at the potential to increase damage on those characters, where artifact passive are based upon restoration.

    Nice, I could use some lantern though, like Kilowog or Kyle Rayner

    We could use more lantern stuff in general. Next DLC we should fight White Lanterns. Follow our trend of villainy from the previous episode.

    This ought to be broken for healers in duels. Already broken with certain artifacts.

    So pretty much every group outside of Elite/Plus...
  15. myandria Item Storage

    According to the description, the stack resets after a priority or group heal is cast; it doesn't specify what source the cast comes from. Since it is vague, I am assuming on the side of caution that anyone/thing can cause the passive to reset.

    Maybe Mepps can give some clarification later on in the week.

    Understood. Your build reminds me of a typical cleric build in other types of MMO games; this is where I think the passive is pointing to. It will be interesting to see how players assemble their groups going forward, as they may want "battle" healers more than just "healers".

    nice:) , but for my finances and expensive.
  18. Pale Rage Dedicated Player

    I use my battle healing loadout for healing everything except elite. In elite, I'll still run the same artifacts, but in healer gear, and with priority heal for the tank.
