Overview

Heal Renegade provides almost permanent Alacrity and 25 stacks of Might to your subgroup. This build should always be used as a secondary healer with a Druid carrying out the traditional main healer role to produce Fury and offensive squad buffs.

Don't tell anyone but this build does have . Wait...another build with offensive buffs? This can't be real. It must be an oversight by Arenanet so probably don't fixate on it too much.

This build also has good team support through , and . It produces Protection whenever you use a ability and some Regeneration and Retaliation when you evade an attack. These boons are thanks to the traits and respectively.

Heal Renegade is a very easy build to pick up and can help support your subgroup. Unfortunately this build only supplies Might and Alacrity to your subgroup and has no Fury output. You can apply Alacrity to your entire squad but this will impact the amount of Might that you supply.
