Overview

  • Race: Breton
    • Healers currently go for Breton for the excellent sustain Breton provides. Great alternate races can be found in our race guide here.
  • Mundus: Thief
    • Because we are Breton we do not need the Atronach Mundus, we can instead opt for the thief Mundus which will add crit to our heals and our damage.
  • Attributes:
    • Magicka: 64
    • Health: 0
    • Stamina: 0
  • Consumables
    • Food: Arteum Pickled Fish Bowl (Solitude salmon is a much cheaper and nearly as good option)
      • Clockwork Citrus if you need more sustain
    • Potion: Essence of Spell power

In this section, we will cover both the starter gear and veteran gear for the Dragonknight Healer build.

ROTATION

Unlike DPS, your rotation as a healer is very flexible and largely determined by how much healing you will need to have going out. But in general, focus on the following:

  • Try to keep Combat Prayer uptime near 100% to keep the Minor Berserk buff up
  • Keep an Energy Orb in the air at all times for the huge healing it provides and the synergy it provides your team
  • When you have time, use Illustrious Healing to proc your Master’s restoration staff
