Here’s quick guide about Healer Role Actions! Shadowbringers has brought yet another update to the Role Actions system (previously the cross-class skills system). This time around, we no longer have to choose – and have access to all Role Actions!
|8||Repose||Puts target to Sleep.||30||2.5||2.5|
|10||Esuna||Removes a single debuff from your target.||-||1||2.5|
|18||Swiftcast||Next spell is cast without cast time.||10||Instant||60|
|24||Lucid Dreaming||Regain MP over time.||21||Instant||60|
|44||Surecast||Spells can be cast without interruption. Ignore most position altering effects.||6||Instant||120|
|48||Rescue||Pull a party member to your side.||-||Instant||150|
Here we talk a little bit about each of the role actions, and their applications.
I dont think this has ever been used in raiding, but this is a godlike soloing and questing skill. Putting enemies to sleep so you can interact with objects is the best.
Bind it close – this comes up in almost all dungeons and many raids. And it’s very important to use when it does come up! Clearing a debuff is often the difference between life and death.
Will mostly be used to instant cast your resurrection, or AoE heal. I guarantee that’s the use 99% of the time. The other 1% is the rare heavy single target heal you need to make sure someone survives.
Use it often. Restoring your mana is great, for reasons I need not expound on. “Mo’ Mana, No Problems”. Timing on using it isn’t so important these days but try to avoid “mega overflow”.
Very niche skill in some raid encounters. It’s super rare that a strategy would require the use of Surecast, but please be aware of this skill in your repertoire in case it does!
An amazing skill that saves lives. Admittedly it’s quite difficult to use sometimes because of its “animation lock”. Admittedly I forget to use this when I could have saved someone – bind it “close enough”. I had it bound to 8 before, and I didn’t get much saving done until I bound it closer.
Well, that’s about it for Healer Role Actions! FOR NOW! I’ll be adding to this soon.
