Stem's Guide to Celestial Healing Quick Introduction Before I begin this guide I would like to give a bit credit to Spin Chop (Guy from odyssey who solo healed nexus) For making me look into using Consume Souls. Other than that everything else I came up with, and by coincidence was what he/she used. Strictly Healer The Loadout: Blessing, Renew, Admonish, Divine Light, Life Drain, Consume soul. I've used this loadout to solo heal Nexus without wipes a couple of times as well as with a Fire tank on all occasions so I didn't have it super easy. Also, this loadout is EASILY capable to solo heal Paradox. How to use/ Healing combos: Blessing: Shield.. Not much explanation needed but I use this if someone goes down or if I am stuck in a control effect as well as to heal the tank if he/she is taking excessive damage. Oh and if green is on someone. Renew: Not much to explain too, your instant heal, can be used to clip. Heals you and most injured teammate. Admonish: An amazing heal that makes celestial unique. I use this to start off then combo into blight for a HOT (8-man HOT) and a 5% critical healing chance. Also after your HOTs are out, I use this if 2+ people new a heal and sometimes clip with renew if many heals are needed. Also Admonish clip with Renew is a great tank heal if the tank needs alot of heals. Divine Light: Your Jesus heal. Almost a nuff said but... People mis-use this and just use it to start off but think of this as a instant Bloom/Invocation with HOT... When alot of people are low and need heals this is your go to. Use it wisely though it's cool down is bitter. Also you can use Admonish to Divine Light or Divine light to renew, depending on how much is needed to be healed Life Drain: Will almost never be needed unless you're out of power to be honest. Or if you are paranoid like myself sometimes when the boss Is low xD, or maybe if the tank stunned by Nexus or if he/she dies. Consume Souls: Your go to HOT. I usually start off with Admonish to blight and clip it with Consume souls for a HOT. Keep in mind this is a short HOT but heals kinda big. The idea: Use admonish to blight and clip with consume soul to get a HOT so as your team is taking damage you HOT kinda "cancels out the damage". Basically Your friend is constantly getting hit by 600, you're HOT will take care of it and if someone does need a heal you have 3 heals at your disposal; Renew for one guy, Admonish for 2+ guys, and Divine light if the services of Jesus are needed. Remander's Transitional Build v2.0 Loadout: Malediction/Benediction, Admonish/Blight, Anoit, Retribution/Wither, Blessing, Cursed Idol(or Life Drain). How to Use-This build includes Renew, which can be subbed in for Retribution/Wither, for more of a pure healing loadout. You can also alternatively spec Consecrated Ground as the Super Charge. The 2 remaining power points go into the 10% crit healing and damage Iconics. Damage heals are set up with McB. Any prec damage for 12 seconds after that is cast is converted to healing for yourself and up to 7 group members with a cap based on your resto (note: it is very difficult to reach this cap, unless your resto : prec ratio is very low). If power is available, you can use RcW. It also applies purification, which creates more healing. When power is low, you should focus on weapon attacks for prec damage. What's New? Malediction/Benediction: Malediction is a single target might DoT and a small HoT for yourself, but when you combo into Benediction, that's where the fun begins. You and 7 others get heals based off your precision damage (ex: Rifle grenade, Arrow storm, and even your celestial combos, such as cleansed Blight or Wither). Retribution/Wither: If you DPS you know what this combo is, but I'll explain anyways. Retribution stuns and gives might damage to your target, and cleansed Wither sets up a precision DoT that gives heals, when corrupted Benediciton is active. That's all? No way! It also sets up the Purification PI, causing your target's attacks to heal for a small amount. Cursed Idol: Very low cost SC, so can be used often. Not only is it a might DoT, it's a strong HoT for all allies in range. It has a massive range, and when an add dies in range of it, it starts hitting harder and faster (Yeah, that's what she said xD). Anoint- This move is basically a 45% Prec buff that goes to you and 3 other group members. It also gives a small Resto boost. As soon as it goes down it can be used again. Remander's Aggressive Battle Build: Loadout: Anoint, Admonish/Blight, Malediction/Benediction, Retribution/Wither, Divine Light/Plague, Cursed Idol (or LD) Info: Takes the 2 power points used for Renew and Blessing from the above build and puts them into Plague and DL. This combined with RcW makes for massive amounts of damage healing. Keep in mind that it's much more power-hungry, though How to Spec Recommended minimum Skill Points = 94 This gets you all of the damage and healing crits, in addition to your 7 basic movement mode and 5 basic main weapon (e.g., HB up to Pulse Beam, Bow up to Flurry Shot) SP specs. Optimal minimum SP = 108 This gets you the above plus the extra 180 tier 1 restoration. Optimal resto : precision ratio = 4 : 1 This is what I've found to be best for battle healing at tier level. I use a mix of healer and DPS gear, which I can switch as needed. For instance, I currently have 3840 : 975 in my T5 battle spec. This ensures good base heals, as well as good damage heals. If you overgear the content, you can add more DPS gear to shift the ratio more toward damage. I have run with as low as a 5 : 4 ratio, which is basically DPS gear with a healer chest piece. Recommended tactical mod = Core Strength To get the most out of damage healing, you have to get rid of the 25% damage penalty in healer stance. Core Strength does this. JEEBIE's Battle Build Loadout: Renew, Malediction/Benediction, Admonish/Blight, Retribution/Wither, Blessing, Divine Light Brief Explanation: This loadout does not require much explanation, because it's quite similar to Remander's. Basically, you are dropping out the SC and Consume Soul, which gives you back 2 PP, so you can pick up the other 2 DPS/Healer Iconics. These are replaced by Renew and Blessing. This loadout is great for damage, and is capable of solo healing in the hands of a experienced Celestial Healer. JEEBIE has used it to solo heal Paradox. Have fun healing while helping with the burn!
