Preserver 3.4

Introduction:
 The Primalist healing soul Preserver is really strong and will compete with Clerics Purifier.
 You have equal abilities with some minor differences and will have a new and in my opinion fun playstyle.

In this guide i will go abit more into depth, but not as deep as i want, and from what ive learned while playing preserver so far. I will include what i believe is important to know and abilities that you mostly use as a healer, there are a few other abilities not mentioned that you might use sometimes.

Build:
 31 Preserver / 4 Dervish / 4 Typhoon

Use Medic’s Crystal for tank healing.
 Use Caretaker’s Crystal in Dungeons or in raids where you use a Purifier aswell.

Masteries:

  2. Lv62 — Forest Matron (+5% increased healing & absortion)
  3. Lv63 — Ursine Tenacity (Allows Nurture and Naturalize to be channeled while moving)
  4. Lv64 — Ethereal Meditiation (Your Cultivate heals twice as rapidly)
  5. Lv65 — Natures Blessing or Ancestral Force (Natures Blessing works similair to Divine Favor and does stack with divine favor.)

Playstyle:
 The playstyle is like a mixture of purifier and chloromancer. You have strong channels, instant heals and shields, aswell for dots and blossoms to keep track of.
 You gain certain buffs by using certain abilities and aswell for increased healing when using damaging abilities.
 Therefor you wanna squeeze in a damage abilitiy aswell in your rotation and keep an eye on the situation on what you need and where your Focus is.

Rotation:

  • Deluge -> Cultivate -> Inundate
  • Low Stability -> Nurture -> Cultivate -> Inundate
  • Nurture -> Cultivate -> Inundate

For situations that you know the tank or tanks will take alot of damage use Essence Flow then do Inundate on them 3 times then Estuary and you will be in Full Fury for the HoT.
 If theres a long fight with alot of tank damage over a longer time use your Invigorate and apply Deluge then use Nurture.

  • For an example
  • Essence Flow -> Inundate x 3 -> Estuary
  • Deluge -> Cultivate -> Inundate
  • Low Stability -> Nurture -> Cultivate — Inundate
  • Nurture -> Cultivate — Inundate

And for situations where its required both tank healing and raid healing use your Primal Avatar then Serenity and Estuary then do Deluge on tank
 and try to keep as much overhealing as possible on the tank (or target) to spread 20% of the overhealing done.

  • For an example
  • Primal Avatar -> Serenity -> Estuary
  • Deluge -> Cultivate -> Inundate
  • Low Stability — Nurture -> Cultivate -> Inundate
  • Serenity -> Nurture -> Cultivate -> Inundate

Keynotes
 
 In raids you can use Nature’s Blessing on the tank/tanks and two more. At the moment it does stack with Divine Favor so you could apply it aswell to the tank/tanks if theres a Purifier there aswell.

In dungeons you can apply Nature’s Blessing to those that do damage and keep healing the tank.

If theres no damage on tanks or other stuff you can proc Hasty Blossoms and use your damaging abilities on the boss or adds depending on the situation.

Make sure to keep your stacks of Blossom up at all time to gain Hasty Blossoms (reduced cast time for 1.5sec) when using Cultivate and to spread your overhealing to injured raid or party members.

You can also proc Font of Savagery by spamming Serenity before pull.
