    Default [4.5] Range pseudo support

    Don't listen to threadsafe, he's been harassing, insulting, trashtalking and ordering me to do things when he can't prove a single words he say, keep it clean and ignore him in game and on forums for your own sake.

    Hello everyone,
    I guess every prima player already know about the Pseudo support spec i made long time ago. About 1 year from now, i made a special range version of it for my raid group Freaks on Leash, but since we never really used it , i never released the guide. And today i found the time to make it so let's go!

    What's this spec ?
    So , the spec is a sort of support, that still deal a very decent amount of dps.Don't use this spec over an archon. The spec is made to be used alongside an archon , it have a really nice dps and provide to the raid a nice dps buff.


    Where can you use it ?
    Everywhere, for every type of encounter you want.

    What's the soul tree?

    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#...48kJg4/!3|__Pg

    Legendaries are :
    - Forced Apathy
    - Primal Savagery
    - Seismic Smash
    - Primal Avatar : Wind Serpent
    - Scald

    Masteries are :
    - Exhileration
    - Steadfast Rejuvenation
    - Vulpine Cunning
    - Elemental Affinity
    - Savage Blow


    How to play the spec :

    Buffs :
    Primal Savagery
    Zephyr
    Font of Savagery

    Macros :

    Spam macro :
    #show Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent
    cast Seismic Smash
    cast Tailwind
    cast Aerial Boon
    cast Tectonic Spike
    cast Air Cutter
    use reliquary of rage
    cast [notactive] Zephyr

    Scald macro :
    #show Scald
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent
    cast Scald
    cast Squall
    cast [notactive] Zephyr

    Apathy macro :
    #show Forced Apathy
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent
    cast Squall
    cast Forced Apathy

    Prepull :
    Precast Scald (not the macro) during your tank countdown.
    Scald (not macro again) for the 2nd stack
    Apply all dots

    Rotation/Priorities :
    #1 - Keep Savage blow up
    #2 - Keep 2 stacks of Scald on the target
    #3 - Keep Bind Life/Air Lash Up
    #4 - Refresh Forced Apathy between 5sec and 0sec of its remaining duration
    #5 - Keep Savage twister up
    #6 - Spam

    It's a fairly easy rotation, all you need to do is to keep dots up and spam when you don't have anything to refresh.
    It act like a dot spec so there isn't lot's of tips to increase your dps here, as long as you refresh your dots on the last 2 seconds, you'll be fine.

    Spell in depth :
    - Savage blow is your hardest hitting dot so it's the most important one.
    - Scald will boost the elemental damage taken of your target by 30% for all your spells.
    - Bind Life/Air Lash tick have a chance to reset the duration of Tailwind and Hastening Vigor, which are your hard hitting spells.
    - Forced Apathy as legendary will tick really high for a dot once its duration is under 30sec, do not refresh before else your dps will drop.
    - Savage Twister count as dot for the bonus damage on Savage Blow.

    Parse :

    Thanks for reading, i hope it will help some of you who have trouble playing the melee Peudo support, this one is definitly easier and can still perform really good. It also provide the crit debuff for your team so it's a nice bonus on top of it.

    Please don't use Squall inside the spam macro, else people in RR will hate you for pulling monsters outside of AoEs every 8sec.

    Have a nice day everyone!

    May add this frankenstein while we are here:

    Super easy Pseudo-heal that can turn the tide and turn an Isiel wipfest into a kill.

    Situation:
    You have tanks and a Warchanter but your tanks just keep dieing and everyone is getting tired of it.
    You are the Pseudo Support or some undergeared alt who is supposed to be carried but now you have to step up and be useful.

    What it does:
    - Very potent st absorption spam with your beloved pseudo buffs.
    - Some dmg
    - Passive mitigation boni for tanks
    - You have alot of very quick ticking heals which completely explode with a Warchanter in the group.

    Imagine a Puri + St Chloro with Pseudo buffs.

    You can mainly use that one macro below. It will push you towards Fury and has close to no cast times by default.
    Blossoms will cause overhealing to splash onto the team, which can be quite alot with a Chanter in the group!


    #The little something ofc

    #show Essence Flow

    cast @group01 Cleanse
    cast @group02 Cleanse
    cast @group03 Cleanse
    cast @group04 Cleanse
    cast @group05 Cleanse
    cast @group06 Cleanse
    cast @group07 Cleanse
    cast @group08 Cleanse
    cast @group09 Cleanse
    cast @group10 Cleanse
    cast Essence Flow
    cast Deluge
    cast Rend Spirit
    cast Spiritual Guidance
    cast Cultivate
    cast Inundate
    cast Estuary
    cast Nurture

    #15sec serenity @target

    #show Serenity
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @gtae Serenity

    #15sec serenity @self

    #show Serenity
    suppressmacrofailures
    target @self
    cast @gtae Serenity
    target @lasttarget


    -> Buff Nature's Blessing on your tank(s)
    -> Keep Up Predestination on your VIP targets
    -> Start with one Nuture Channel to get some Blossoms going
    -> Press that button like you mean it
    Serenity is just a ground target effect which you can put on the tank for an extra hot or on the group.

    Keep up Soul Shroud if you are bored. It will heal good on the maintank but laughably little on the rest.

    ->> No active cooldowns, no battlerezz. Just passive Boni that WILL make the difference.

    If you know how Preserver works you can ofc split the macro up but this *build/guide* is ment to be picked up in 2 minutes between pulls without any practise.


    ALTERNATIVE SETUP

    Adding a Rezz and an aoe healing cd for emegencies.

    cast @gtae Serenity

    -> Buff Nature's Blessing on your tank(s)
    -> Start with one Nuture Channel before pull to get some Blossoms going
    -> Press that button like you mean it
    Serenity is just a ground target effect which you can put on the tank for an extra hot or on the group.
    -> Use 1 second of Nuture to get 80Fury and refresh Essence Strike every <20 seconds.


    You may use them for dungeons etc but the main goal was passive st mitigation.

    This spec belongs to family of fully featured "pseudo" supports (HV and Crit debuff).
    18 mystic tree should probably look this way https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#!b/!49akw/R because Forced Apathy is usually dispelled by Archons. You should not use Forced Apathy and related specs if you have Archon.
    I tested Savage Blow in spam macro and outside and there is no real difference for me. Just 1 button less.
    It is important to cast Savage Twister at ~100% cunning so casting it after BL/AL or Hastening Vigor is rarely good.

    There is no reason to do this but you should track it because it is possible to lose 2 stacks.

    If you can't manage 1 more dot then don't play a spec with like 6 of them...
    Savage blow inside macro will net about 50-100k less dps for a spec already really easy. You don't want to refresh a dot 33% sooner everytime.
    Practice and you'll easily manage it outside a macro. Dummy is your friend !
