Build:

  • When your frontliner is running/shadow stepping into foes, support him with Spell Breaker and Shield of Absorption.
    • Against heavy-hitting targets also use Protective Spirit.
    • With its duration of 12 seconds Shield of Absorption is going to make the melee nigh-invulnerable. At a recharge of 10 seconds, you can maintain shield of absorption, however, the new one will start a new damage reduction calculation. Combine with Seed of Life when renewing to avoid your melee's death if he's under attack from many targets.
  • Remove blindness, crippled, weakness, dazed and deep wound with Dismiss Condition.

  • Order of Apostasy Order of Apostasy (afflicted)

  • Blessed Aura Blessed Aura – extends Shield of Absorption from 7 to 11/12 (see below) seconds and Spell Breaker from 18 to 30 seconds duration.
    • Regular attribute values: For Blessed Aura to have its maximum effect on Shield of Absorption, you first cast the aura, then switch to your weapon of enchanting.
    • At 20 divine favour (under the effects of Heroic Refrain) Shield of Absorption will last 13/14 (see below) and Spell Breaker 36 seconds.
