Usage

  • Remove deep wound and other troublesome conditions from targets which would benefit from Restore Condition's healing.
    • Dervishes apply plenty of conditions each spike, allowing you to catch pressure spikes in teams such as necromancer balanced with this skill.
  • Catch spikes with Spirit Bond (PvP), especially against elementalist heavy teams.
  • Use Aegis (PvP) appropriately.
    • Keep in mind that touch skills such as Shock can still be used on this target and PBAoE like Frozen Burst can still hit it.
    • Already applied effects will still work, i.e. the end effect of Lightning Surge.
    • Ideal skill to catch spikes against teams with dual Shatter Enchantment.
    • Force successful use of resurrection skills.
    • Force successful use of Avatar of Balthazar or Apply Poison if you can afford to play offensively and those skills get camped.
  • Protect allies from martial attacks with Guardian.
    • Help your midline against ranger interruptions.
    • If the opponent has a dervish and a warrior, prefer to use it against the warrior.
  • Reduce the damage from many small damage packets with Shielding Hands. Works especially well against dervishes.
  • Pre-veil targets.
    • Use it on the infuse monk if the opponent has a mesmer and is currently fighting with 5 damage against two monks.
    • Use it on the infuse monk if you've been powerblocked, as the mesmer will likely start using Shame and Diversion on him to force a kill.
    • Help your flag runner against snare hexes.
    • Remove hexes in general against hexways.
  • Prevent knock downs on party members with Aura of Stability, especially from hammer warriors.
    • Protect yourself with Balanced Stance.

Counters

  • Forceful Blow warriors.
  • Air of Disenchantment, Mark of Insecurity and Tranquility.
  • Signet of Humility.
  • Enchanter's Conundrum.
