Variable Prot Hero

The setup for the backline Prot hero depends on what you'll be facing. If using the Minion Bomber variant of the Order of Apostasy Minion Master then take the Boon Prot. This setup provides extra armor ignoring AoE damage, distraction/protection from enemies targeting the minions, and extra spot healing/prot/condition cleanse. If using the Bone Fiend or pure DPS variant of the Order of Apostasy Necromancer then take the ST Prot Ritualist. It will provide party-wide protection when facing heavy Armor-Ignoring AoE damage.

Usage

  • The Ranger player is responsible for calling targets for the rest of the team since the player bar provides the conditions for Scavenger Strike.
  • Make sure you prioritize shutting down dangerous Casters and Monk enemies with Technobabble Technobabble . Proper use of this skill can be the difference between a successful combat and a wipe
  • The minions, or protection, in the team will provide ample time for your team to focus on spiking important targets one at a time.
  • Heroes that are not primary Rangers sometimes refuse to resurrect their pets. If that happens you need to micro them.
  • Order of Apostasy may sometimes prevent the team from receiving the benefit from Order of the Vampire, but in most cases where they overlap the enchantment removal is likely more important.


Counters

  • Massive blind
  • Frequent armor-ignoring AoE damage
  • Heavy anti-martial hexes
  • Pets won't scatter out of DoTAoE

Notes

  • The Soul Twisting Ritualist is allowed more frequent use of Shelter Shelter and Union Union thanks to Defensive Anthem freeing Displacement Displacement from its bar.
  • If you find the Paragon heroes use Defensive Anthem Defensive Anthem at the same time to often, precast one of the copies just before engaging in combat.
