    Default PvP FrostKeeper

    I've played with various FK builds strictly for PVP, both 61 and 51 point builds with secondary souls to improve SP/Healing/Survivability (Harb/Arb/SC/Chloro). I only have 1 piece of Slayer's gear (so no crystal bonus) and both the slayer's MH/OH (no wand, yet).

    I'm noticing some FK's healing output nearly double mine, and after running a parser saw they were using Legendary ER. I switched over but now since LER is essentially on a 6-second CD (unless using Cold Snap) what do I use for filler? Legendary Bloom and Rime are only healing for 8k-ish or less and Bloom has an 8-second CD.

    Let's say someone with one of my barriers is taking damage: If all my big CD's are down, I could drop Telluric Burst, Bloom, and LER, but now Bloom and LER are on "CD" ... so spam Rime? Considering it only heals for 8k and someone could get blasted by 22k + hits (ignore the 70k hits in this example!)... it just doesn't seem like the right solution.

    the pvp crystal doesnt actually work at all.

    make sure you are using hail blast and speccing into reduced casting with hail blast. hail blast also heals your barriered targets a little. you should also be putting up withering vines on 3 targets as often as you can. i didnt see you mention resurgense or flourish which are fillers you can use as well as natural convertion.

    although this is changing soon and that terrible wait time you think you have is getting doubled next month to 12 secs so no more legendary ER for pvp

    This, except for this patch WV and Resurgence isnt worth spending the point & GCD's on if you are able to hail blast.

    If you have nothing else to do, yea withering vine etc.

    Could you clarify what you mean by that? The PvP healing crystal doesn't heal for 4500 extra (assuming 4-piece bonus + no healing nerf?) overall?

    The PvP crystal works. The problem is that it get bolstered in PvP, meaning that it gets replaced by a paper weight in warfronts, therefore not boosting your heals.

    Really? All those pots and grinding to try to get Slayer's gear and the crystal is ... pointless?



    I mean, I have to ask, but they're aware of this?

    Is the DPS crystal similarly affected?

    Today's patch notes:
    ITEMS
    * Warmongering Healing Synergy Crystals are no longer down bolstered in warfronts.
    Dimples Warrior Tank * If she flashes her dimples at you, it may cause pleasurable blindness.
    Laurie Cleric Tank * Life without Love, is like chocolate cake without real sugar.
    Dweia Rogue Tank * Come. Come with me. I will care for you.

    OP you need Inner Might to kick in for really boosted heals.
