Boon Druid

Great Support Build

Overview
Guide

At the moment Boon Druid is a great build for fractals, primarily providing the group with heals. Aside from keeping up the health bars ( uptime), it also facilitates a bunch of utilities and strong offensive party support in form of , , , and Vulnerability.

The Druid's main source of healing comes from , which is replenished by acquiring Astral Force from healing allies and damaging foes (). Using CA replaces your weapon skills with strong AoE healing skills.

Besides healing, the skills (and any glyph outside of CA like due to ) trigger which generates 25x Might for up to 10 people with a boon duration setup.

With the help of its pets, the druid also has access to heavy defiance bar damage with (Electric Wyvern) and (Rock Gazelle). Moreover, the Smokescale pet can be used to stack party Stealth with its smoke field.

Keep in mind that the setup below is optimized for healing in fractals and is not recommended for raid content due to the high Toughness amount from Minstrel and Cleric items. If you don't care about optimizing and want to use one set for everything, simply run a full Harrier setup instead.
