Introduction to Renegade
Energy

Most skills, except your auto attack, have a flat energy cost or an energy drain.

You can have a maximum 50 energy outside of combat and a maximum of 100 when in combat.

You have upkeep arrows above your energy bar that indicate the rate at which energy is recharged, each arrow indicating 1% per second.

Energy drain skills will reduce the amount of energy recharge by a specific number of "arrows". You can stack energy draining utilities until eventually have negative energy recharge, or full energy drain.

Once your energy reaches zero, these draining utilities will be turned off automatically.

When swapping to another legend, you will instantly have 50 energy. This can be further increased by 25 energy if you have the trait , you can find this trait in the Invocation trait line.

Energy Management

Maintaining your upkeep skills, producing Alacrity, and using your damage skills pushes you to the very limits of how much energy you can spend at any given time making very little room for utility.

For any given legend swap, lasting 10 seconds, you will have an energy budget of 100, or 125 if you have . Here are some energy costs of some of the more commonly used skills in your rotation that you will always want to be using:

  • = ~80 energy.
  • = 20 energy.

You're able to upkeep for maximum of 15 seconds if you don't spend your energy in other ways, then you'll need to swap to . Spending ~ 15 seconds in and 10 seconds in makes your fit quite nicely so that you can use it only in .

Not wasting precious energy in lets you upkeep even more. In most cases you will not be able to do it because of other necessary energy spendings.

Try to know energy costs of your skills and plan in ahead of what you need to use! Poor energy management can make you unable to cast crucial skills when you really need them.

Legends

Legends are a specific mechanic that is unique to the Revenant class.

When playing Heal Renegade, you will come into contact with two different Legends:

You can swap your Legends every 10 seconds, which lines up pretty well with your Weapon Swap.

Swapping Legends will trigger Weapon Swap sigils and traits. For example:

Citadel Order

The unique profession mechanics associated with Renegade are the Citadel Order skills.

, your F2 skill, grants your subgroup two stacks of Might per stack of Kalla's Fervor that you have. You grant more Might if you have the trait , a trait in the Renegade Trait Line.

, your F3 skill, spits out 10 missiles that inflict Burning.

grants your subgroup pulsing Alacrity. This pulses four times, with an interval of one second. Without Boon Duration, each pulse is 1.5 seconds. Your pulses six times when you have the trait , a trait in the Renegade Trait Line.

Kalla's Fervor

Kalla's Fervor increases your Ferocity by 30 stat points and your Condition Damage by 2% per stack. You can gain a maximum of five stacks of Kalla's Fervor.

will give you Kalla's Fervor whenever you critically hit or flank an enemy.

will give you Kalla's Fervor whenever you gain Fury. This trait has a three second internal cooldown.

will give you Kalla's Fervor whenever you Dodge an attack. This trait has a three second internal Cooldown.

will cause your Kalla's Fervor to reduce incoming condition damage by 7% per stack. This is in addition to the Ferocity and outgoing increased Condition Damage.

Might, Alacrity and other boons

You can grant Might with and Alacrity with . Depending on your Renegade grandmaster trait choice you can provide:

  • Permanent Alacrity for your entire squad and ~ 15 stacks of Might for your subgroup when you take .
  • Very high Alacrity for your subgroup and 25 stacks of Might for your subgroup when you take .
Most of the time you will be running , as you'll most likely have a Heal Druid to provide all the Might.

Heal Renegade can upkeep a good amount of Protection just by using abilities due to the trait.

You can grant somewhat mediocre upkeep of Regeneration and Retaliation by Dodging due to . Regeneration isn't that crucial for this build since you offer a lot of passive healing. Retaliation is an essential boon for Power Dragonhunters, if you have any in your squad always place them in your subgroup!

Where does your healing come from?

Heal Renegade can provide constant passive healing as well as large bursts. The only real limitation is the energy cost. Knowing when to save up energy is crucial to be effective healer.

The Salvation trait line offers a total of 55% outgoing healing in the form of:

  • , and
  • and
  • and

is a passive way to heal the squad. They heal in small radius around when they're picked up for ~ 850 health. You spawn when you:

  • One when you Dodge thanks to .
  • One when you use skills thanks to .
  • Two when you finish staff auto attack chain - .
  • Three when you use skills thanks to .
  • Zero to five when using .

is 2000 - 3000 heal on short Cooldown, with small energy cost which makes it perfect to spam, if needed.

can heal for ~4500, it cleanses two conditions and is a Blast Finisher.

As always, Regeneration is valid source of healing, for Heal Renegade it can tick ~650 every second!

On you have also access to:

  • makes your Ventari's Tablet heal for over 800 every three seconds.
  • is your spammable skill, healing for over 2000 whenever you move Tablet through an ally.
  • can heal for 9000 while being on two second Cooldown. There is small delay before the healing occurs, so you can re-position your Tablet after casting the skill.
  • can heal up to 3500 if three conditions have been removed however, it comes with a large energy cost.
  • spawns five healing fragments, each healing for ~3500. As this skill drains all your energy and destroys Tablet, it should be used only if you're about to swap out from .

On you have also access to:

  • which covers huge area and heals for ~2500 each second, for 10 seconds. Moreover, it offers 50% condition damage reduction. Use it wisely, as it has a very long Cooldown.
  • heals for ~ 650 per hit. Again, faster hitting classes will heal themselves much more. This can be your go-to healing skill, and DPS skill, in . This, obviously, assumes that people are able to hit something and keep up their rotation

To sum up - Regeneration, moving around your Ventari Tablet and should be enough to outheal any passive damage. Use , and Staff skills for big heals, when and if needed.

Soulcleave's Summit

is your elite skill. It grants roughly 450 damage per hit and doesn't have any internal Cooldown, obviously fast hitting classes strongly benefit from this.

Here is a summary of the average hits per second for the most common classes:

Depending on your class composition, upkeep and it's timing with squad's burst, you might expect up to around 1000 DPS increase for each class.
