      Hello Malcolm, that is a great idea thanks for sharing 🙂 Every Healer has its own AOE Channelling Healing superpower and experienced players should use it when they consider helpful

  1. Malcolm

    I don’t use supercharge at all or either of the shield’s unless it’s a serious raid I use shard of life and transmutation in place of them so I can put out a lot of damage as well as healing but do you think invocation of renewal is good to use right after picking someone up or that the animation is too long

    L like Handblasters or Twohanded but i see atm many healers with brawling…
    Amd i know thaht One Handed is “OP” but i dont like it :/

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Glitter, i suggest you pick one of your most favorites weapons and learn how to use it so you can play with it. Choosing a weapon is more about how you feel with it rather than choosing what everyone gets. We always recommend One Handed because it is a balanced and easy weapon to use but players should choose the weapon they like most

      Hello Scuzy, we update our guides when powers are modified with Game Updates. Sorcery Healer Guide is still the same since GU47 because there haven’t been any changes for sorcery powers or mechanics 🙂 Try this guide and let us know how it goes

    Hi my toon is 174 cr 189 sp healer. I’ve found that the shield boon of souls is great in the lower levels in the game but is practically useless as you get higher in the game. I can’t pickup with it at all and it seems to offer very little protection at this level of play. It is fantastic in the lower levels is it possible to fix this please so that it will work just as well in all levels?

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Outbackangel, thanks for your question. Boon of Souls is supposed to work as a defend shield when your allies are knocked down so alive players can revive them.

      On the other hand, DCUO Bloguide is not related with DCUO so we cant help fix the issue you mention, many players use these shield for situations mentioned before but if you consider it useless you should try Soul Well to have an additional healing area of effect

    Hi some players have told me on a forum post focused on sorcery healing that dcuobloguide.com is not to be completely relied on for load outs. Except for one or two very small tweaks I’ve pretty much followed your suggestions since I’ve been playing and for the most part I feel, while I may not be the best sorcery healer in the game, I’m no where close to the worst. In fact any load outs suggested by any of the players I’ve ended up liking less. So I’m finding it hard to see how it’s not helpful.

    Is the information about sorcery healers that’s on the site today updated to work best with the most recent updates coming out? Will we see any changes to sorcery healing after today’s new content is launched?

      Hello Microwaves, thanks for your comment. Our guides are meant to help players start with their powers, be great at it while they raise their combat rating and finally be great at max CR.

      The whole point of posting guides for power is for players to use them and with their experience tweak loadouts in a more experienced way. Sorcery hasnt have recent updates which is why this build and loadout are still viable for game.

      As you experienced, everybody has its own builds and loadouts (which is the magic of DCUO). We have to work hard to learn how to use everypower and provide recommended guides that sometimes are not the best but it certainly helps player to understand DCUO powers.

      We are currently working on a project to let players create and share their own guides with the community. I think this will be what DCUO Community needs to not only check our guides but also check what experienced players have to offer

  6. Devtrax

    i just hit level 30 on my Sorcerer with CR of 37 , Should i stay dps or can i start healing already? i read your previous replies and it mentions to use hand blaster or 1 handed? whats better? thanks.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Devtrax, it is recommended that you raise your combat rating in DPS mode so you dont depend on others to kill enemies for you. I personally use One handed for DPS and you should also, it is one of the best and easiest weapon to use

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Baldur, thanks for your question. Sorcery is considered a great power. However, you should know that being great at DPS depends on so many factors including equipment, MODS, skill points and player experience

    2. JimBerry

      I started as Sorcery in Feb 2011. In March 2013, I re-spec’d to Electric for close to a week, but returned to Sorcery. I’ve been a full-time Sorcery healer since then. I stink at dps, so I stick to healing. I am currently active on PS3/PS4, and honestly, I see very few Sorcery healers, and that makes me happy, because I feel exclusive. The game just released on Xbox One, which is my preferred console of choice. I’ll be recreating my Sorcery Villian the exact same way as my PSN counterpart.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Eion, thanks for your question. There is no news about future improvements for Sorcery. However, most player deals great damage with fury mechanics and sorcery is considered a great healer because if its healing area of effect. You should give it a try and it will be great for dps or healing

  7. Jklands1

    These t7s on the skill tree should I get all the crits or go for the bottom bonus restorations then work to the next tree I’m 147 cr and 147 sp any tips on that and about the dps side of sorcery as far as the weapon tree and best weapon for fast mastery I know about them just need advice on dps and healing of a sorcery the t7 bde is hard and I am t7 nodded as well thank you.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Jklands, it is recommended that you use your skill points to unlock movement skills, main weapon mastery and cross weapon masteries. After that you can choose between going for Weapon Mastery Skill points at the bottom of the weapon tree or unlocking statistics according to your role for all weapon trees.

      We recommend focusing on Weapon mastery skill points because it improves your restoration heavily. However, this is a player choice 🙂

  8. Mystikal Ivy

    I am a sorcery healer, I have 2 loadouts I use, depending on the circumstances:

    Alerts, duos, solos: Rejuvenate; Invocation of Renewal, Circle of Destiny, Guardian; Boon of Souls; Ritualistic Word

    Raids or other instances with a good tank: Rejuvenate, Invocation of Renewal, Circle of Destiny, Boon of Souls, Ritualistic Word, Shard of Life.

    My resto is 13660, I am CR 131, and am fully modded with T7, resto or resto + health or resto + precision.

    I can solo anything without a problem. However, when there is another healer present, I tend to run significantly lower in healing out than they do. Example: Bombshell: I ran with another healer and her healing out was 3.9 mill, but mine was 3 mill. If I run it alone, I can hit 3.9 mill easy. For those people who leaderboard watch, it looks like I don’t know what I’m doing. And perhaps I don’t.

    Any feedback? Suggestions? Tips? (other than quitting cuz that ain’t happening)

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Mystikal, maybe the healer has more skill points or its power mechanics allows him to heal more than your healer. However, this is not a issue to worry about. While you do a great job by having your allies alive if they bother you then they are crazy. Sorcery Healers are great but its mechanic is more AoE so players must be inside your AOE to receive heal which is great. Nature Healers mechanics are more about Healing Over Time so if you compete with them it will be a little hard to win but it doesnt mean you are a bad healer, it is just allies are receiving heals over time that your heals doesnt get to affect them because they are always full health.

      Keep healing as you do, it seems you have lot of experience and as i said before, The most important thing for a healer is to keep allies alive

    2. Spxheretic

      Never trust healing out stats as a measuring stick to your ability as a healer. If you have a fire tank, it’s a waste to heal him beyond 75-80% health most of the time but if that other healer is doing so, whatever, save your power, make the troll’s life easier. And as a firm believer in shielding and buffs, especially with nature, damage prevented doesn’t count towards healing out, but it can be terribly effective. And a shorter fight requires less heals, so weapon buffs are also something that can make a great healer even if the scoreboard shows you to be not the best. There’s much more than throwing hit points at your teammates to a healer, so don’t let the numbers discourage you.

    3. Jarda

      Not to be an ass, but it is obvious to occur, since you are “sharing” the task with someone else.
      Its like when you have high dps but people always reach the mobs faster than you, so they boost their damage output, while you don’t.

      Offering and Ritualistic Word only provide power over time to your Sorcery Pets. Trinket pets doesnt get benefit from them

  10. GreatShellworm

    Hi, I have a question, what should I do untill I reach lvl 30?Would that build be good for lvl up or I would be too slow farming and doing missions, the idea is that I want to reach level 30 as soon as possible.Can you give me some advices please?Also if the guide isn’t updated does that means it’s still good?

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello GreatShellworm, you should reach level 30 and raise your CR as a DPS because it is easier and faster than doing it in Healer Role. You should read Sorcery DPS Guide and check how advanced mechanics work so you can unlock the most important superpowers for AM which in Sorcery dps are Fury Pet, Offering, and all powers in the Summoning Tree first.

      Sorcery hasn’t suffered changes since GU47, that is why our sorcery’ guides haven’t changed 🙂 We only update our guides when new features are introduced to the power with Game Updates

  11. Apokalips Star

    Hi, is there a way to kill stuff fast for solo instances and duos as a healer with out switching to dps. Like nature has hjve mind in insect form that makes attacks from insect stronger. What about sorcery?

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Kidzar, thanks for your comment. For sorcery i think that using Guardian instead of Watcher will help you with the DPS so while guardian is hitting targets you heal it and deals weapon mastery combos to help it DPS

    2. susanvoid

      You can get more damage in healer role if you run with Shards of Life, it does a good stun, decent damage, and puts up a p.i as well as healing, and Guardian is invaluable for solo content as a healer because he taunts adds when your health drops below 35%.
      Not really relevant to add but Hive Mind doesn’t actually increase nature healers damage unless they’re using some might based powers too, Hive Mind is a might/restoration buff and most nature healers don’t run with a might power.

      Hello GhostKiller, thanks for your comment. You should try Hand Blaster as you primary weapon, it has great range combos and Pulse Beam is great to increase your hit counter and recover power fast. You can also try One Handed or Dual Wield to deal fast weapon mastery combos too

  15. CirculoLoco

    Is Offering worth a power point? Does it provide any greater power or protection above what Ritualistic Word provides? Is the Health Iconic the best way to spend one of the extra power point in the set, because 100 health at higher level content isn’t much. Thanks.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello CirculoLoco, for healers Ritualistic Word is much better than Offering because it also heals your allies plus it protects your Watcher pet and restore its power over time, Offering is recommended for DPS Pet Loadout only.

      It is wise that you boost your statistics when you already unlocked the best superpowers with power points but if you consider another statistics better than 100 Health you may unlock it instead.

  16. Amane

    I’m hearing that Invocation Of Renewal can actually draw health off of enemies. I’m not sure if they mean it steals health or if it lowers their maximum health but I would like to knoe if there is any truth to this.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Amane, there is no way any superpower lowers enemies maximun health or steals health. Invocation of Renewal restore your health and nearby allies over time and this will depend only on your restoration. This is a great superpower for raids but you need to be close to your allies to heal them.

  17. Dennis

    hello i have a question the magic shield from sorcery healer for what is it good for ? in my laodout i have 1 more heal skill and i dont get it because the shield is only there for 15sec when i get 3 hits in 106 instances is my shield gone so what is it good for. by my meaning is it waste of energie and skill slot but everyone has his own layout

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Dennis, it is recommended for healers that have shield to protect their teammates even for seconds. Having a shield is useful for reviving allies, prevent damage income, and give you time to heal them all.

      In T6 Instances where bosses and adds can one shoot your allies, having a shield can be a lifesaver because it gives you 2 or 3 seconds to heal them all. This is the main reason why shield superpowers are recommended for healers

    Question : I currently have a sorcery healer with hand blasters . I switched to bow but didn’t like it . Now I’m considering staff , would that be a good change or should I just stick with hand blasters ?
    Also I’ve seen a few healers with dual wield / one handed and martial arts . Is that also recommended ? Please get back to me soon . 🙂

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Jemima, hand blasters is a great weapon because it increases the hit counter fast with Pulse Beam so you recover power fast. However, most people choose Dual Wield and One Handed because they have fast weapon mastery combos so healer’ superpowers can get benefit from power reduction.

      Staff has Mortar Mastery which is a fast weapon mastery combo and also increases the hit counters fast so it would be a great choice for you

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Priscilla, leveling as a healer is great for survival and is a nice way to do it. Bow weapon is good also. However, leveling in DPS mode with a faster weapon such as One Handed or Dual wield will make leveling easier.

      Reaching level 30 is just the end of the tutorial so there is no a perfect way to level because it only works for you to know how to manage your character

      Hello Reverse, you probably need to unlock your cross-weapon masteries to increase your weapon damage. However, with your superpowers healer dont suppose to deal heavy damage so using your weapon mastery combos will give you the heaviest damage you can get in healer role

  22. Ziraous

    I’ve been healing the t6 content and I would suggest using invocation of renewal. Also no super charge. Make sure you have a slot for your pet. I use the watcher unless there is no tank for t6 alerts. I use the guardian then. Which invocation heals your guardian a lot. Even in the t6 raid artifact when you split up. I go the opposite of the tank and long as I use ritualistic word and keep his power up, the guardian will tank.
    Here is my loadout.

    Invocation of Renewal
    Boon of souls (clipped by word or rejuvenate)
    Circle of protection (clipped by word or rejuvenate)
    Pet (watcher/guardian) (clipped by all except circle)
    Ritualistic Word ( clipped by rejuvenate, boon, and renewal)
    Rejuvenate (clipped by word, boon, and renewal )

    I put down what clips the animations on the casting. I have not found anything yet to clip renewal. So if anyone knows, let me know please. 🙂

    I hope this helps.

  23. Highheal Diva

    Just another loadout suggestion for raid healing in t6 content. This is what I use and I feel it’s more effective for a raid type setting.

    1. rejuvenate
    2. ritualistic word
    3. circle of protection
    4. boon of souls
    5. invocation of renewal
    6. transcendence.

    In t6 content invocation of renewal is, in my opinion, far superior to both the watcher and soul well. Watcher just seems to exhaust his power before it’s really needed and even using ritualistic word to keep it’s power topped off just seems hugely inefficient. Invocation of renewal is one of the most powerful heals we have for picking up an entire raids health. Paired with empowered channeling hand mod it can be very effective.

      Hello Ghostkiller_4180, each Healer power has its own mechanics to heal but if you are looking for Heals over time, Nature and Sorcery are the one you must choose. I suggest you use Sorcery healer it has HEALS OVER TIME, AOE HEALS, and the PET which also heal your group 🙂

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      You can use Shard of Life instead of Ritualistic Word but your group will need to be near your target to receive healings which is not recommendable and you wont be able to use Watcher in your loadout because it wont heal enough because doesnt have power over time which is provide by Ritualistic Word.

      Also Ritualistic Word instant heals you and 3 allies no matter if they are near or far from you

      Hello Keshawn, to raise your stats for healer you will need tons of skill points, equipment MODS, and good armor.
      * Marks of Triumph can be use for buying TIERS and raise your PVE Combat Rating
      * Marks of Legend allows you to buy additional Legend Characters
      * Sand Dollar, Lucky Clover, Mark of Contest, and Mark of Distinction are old currencies that can be only used for buying Tokens and do the feats. You can trade them in the Magic Wing of your Headquarters

      Hello ErickHv, depending on what content you will play your Restoration is great but i think that for T6 missions you will need to raise it a little more

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Ron, this setup is recommended for all situations including Raids and Operations. Almost every healer has its super-power that heal yourself and 3 other allies. You dont need to worry about it because it is very rare that all your group fall at the same time and you need to heal 8 allies by pressing 1 button. Furthermore, you have Circle of Protection that heals all allies inside the circle

  27. dcuo angelofspeed

    I play 4 year sorcery heal and i say trancendance is worthless. My cr is 106 sp 16 i’m on pseu server. If u wanne have the ultimate heal load out you should not use any supercharge because it gives lesser heals than ritualistic word and transcendance is interrubtible arbiter of destiny still can die.
    The load out i use is
    Shard of life clipped with boon of souls, rejuvenat, circle of protection, ritualistic word and the watcher.
    With this load out you can clip 4 powers in a row. Massive heals. I do more than 18 k crit heals with that.
    The weapon i use is shield because the combination done with duel pistols gives Massive crit. 4 times triangle. To do it. As consumable you should have karmic hex that is a copy of the power karmic backslash. Shard of life combined with karmic hex spreads bad karma with high damage. This Will make you OP in pve.

  28. B-Craz

    I have a quick question, I’m a sorcery healer, i wanted to know if the watcher’s ability to heal is based on your PVE CR, when you are playing PVP? Because my pet is lvl 71 (which is my PVE CR).

    And how can my watcher heal higher? my resto is 3586 and my watcher heals up to 300… I’ve seen people healing up to 700-800 with their watcher… I just don’t get it.

    THANX IN ADVANCE

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello B-Craz, i believe Watcher is based on your PVE Cr. Depending on your Combat rating, it will heal more but it needs to be powered up all the time with Ritualistic Word. Watcher higher heals come from its super-powers so if it doesnt have power it wont be able to heal

    2. B-Craz

      Thanx a lot, i really wanted to know that, but still, i really disagree with dcuo. I’m a PVP player… I never play PVE, it doesn’t make any sense that my watcher is based on PVE even when i’m in PVP…

      Thanx anyways <3

  29. muhammad

    Ok this is my current loadout

    Rej, Boon, Circle, Soul Siphion, Ritualistic Word, Transmutation

    I can use Soul Siphion on enemy, make them have bad karma then use Transmutation, it will heal depending on how many there is with bar karma. Also the cooldown on Transmute is like Rejuvenate’s. So doesn’t this make Rej redundant? Should I use a pet instead of Rej?

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      If you find Rejuvenate redundant because of transmutation then you should use Watcher Pet. This is an interesting way of sorcery healer. Im sure others will be anxious to try it 🙂

    Is Grand Summoning a good power for a sorcery healer? I like summoning pets and it’s quite useful as an emergency button but I’m not sure the Grand Watcher is any better at healing :/

    Another question: How does the crit chance increase work for Golden Soul Aura, specifically for overtime heals like Soul Well and Circle of Protection? Does the crit boost proc immediately when you cast the skill with Golden Aura active and last until the skill ends or does it need the aura to be active throughout the over time healing for the crit boost effect?

    Sorry for the long question but I hope you can answer :] Thanks!

      Hello Rhekinos, Grand Summoning is definitely not a healer power becuase your pets are summoned to attack your target not to heal your allies. When you cast a super-power that grants you Golden Aura, you will see an aura around you. The Golden Aura effect will be on while you have that aura on you.

      Hi marcelol, i will use transcendence because it is helpful to have a backup supercharge power to activate and protect your group instead of invocation of renewal that is a channeled power and only heal nearby allies

    2. GamerInNeed

      How come u never put on innovation renewal for instant heal? And in your opinion. Which is better. Boon of souls or watcher? Plz answer me. I’m trying to make a build

    3. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Boon of Souls is always a great super-power to protect your group in emergency situations or to revive fallen allies 🙂

  32. Osric

    I am still battling over three things to put into the loadout, rejuvenation, Invocation of Renewal, and Ritualistic word
    Since in a T4 raid I find that after dying invocation of renewal is too slow to be able to heal, I usually end up dying again but it does gives 7 player heals as the other two does not.
    While Rejuvenation does give a high critical when it comes to healing or spamming and usually a lot larger amount than Ior but downside is only healing three people.
    For Ritualistic Word is my favorite one since when with healer and watcher one skill helps heal, also gives pet shield and restores pet’s power. Still useless in a raid since watcher dies instantly.

    I can only choose two out of three, could you give me any reasonable suggestions?
    My other loadouts are Circle of Protection, Boon of Souls, Soul Wells and Watcher/Transcendence.
    (I personally like to use boon of souls since if place in the right location it saves plenty of power on healing, I would usually use it with Boon of Souls.) I’d like to hear other suggestions too if there is a way to improve this loadout.

    Thank you for your help.

      Hello osric, i recommend you to use rejuvenate snd ritualistic word. Most of the time and if the tank is doing a great job, you wont need to heal all your group members at the same time that is why rejuvenate is fully recommended. On the other hand, ritualistic word heals 4 players total and still is one of the most power heal super-powers in the sorcery tree.

  33. muhammad

    My current loadout, Rej, Boon, Circle, Shard, Watcher/Guardian, Ritualistic word.

    So Shard is out, which should take its spot? Soul Well, IoR, Transcendence?

      Hi Muhammad, i would recommend you to use Transcendece. It will prevent incoming damage and you and your group members’ Health and Power are significantly restored over time.

    2. muhammad

      hello, i dont find transcendance too useful, ive used it for 2 weeks. so to replace transendance, which is better, soul siphion, or soul well, thanks

    3. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Muhammad, i would use Soul Well instead of Soul Siphon. You just need to watch where you place your Soul Well 🙂

  34. Marcelo

    A few questions since i’m currently a level 14 sorcery healer and plan on taking her up to cr 70:

    Pesronally, which power do you prefer to use or have found more effective, watcher or soul well?
    Tryin this out with a bow, is that a good call? I’m loving it so far.
    Can any of these be clipped together easily? If so which ones?

      Hello Marcelo, thanks for your comment. Depending on the situation Watcher and Soul Well can be very useful. Soul Well heal nearby allies over time but if your allies are always moving then Watcher will be a better choice. Using bow can be great but as a healer you need a combo that increases hit counter fast. I recommend Hand Blaster combo called “Pulse Beam”, it increase your hit counter faster than any other Weapon combo ingame

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Both of them are great Healer powers. However, i prefer sorcery 🙂

  35. GingaAlchemist

    When you put 5 and 6 adjacent vertically does that mean i should choose one or the other for my build or is there some way to have 7 skills in my loadout?

      Hello GingaAlchemist, thanks for your comment. Superpowers adjacent vertically mean that you should choose one of them. You can only have 6 super-powers in your loadout, so we try to make suggestible loadouts for players 🙂

    Hello thanks for quick response. I have a new query.

    apparently watcher suckswhen u get to t5 raids so people suggest the guardian for sorcery healersbecause he acts like a mini tank.

    so my question is, which two of these three is better:

    the guardian, invocation of renewal , offering.

    offering is better than ritualistic word because it gives more power (i tried and tested myself). Does the pet really need power to do his thing or is offering a wasted perk in loadout? The reason i say to use ior is because its been updated where it gives a small heal in first two seconds, and then big heal at end. So is offering better than ior?? Or is offering really useful for team and pet. Invocation of renewal has been upgraded, so u should check it out and then hit me up. Thanks again.

      Hi Muhammad, in T5 raids as a healer you should be protected by your Tank, so Guardian (which doesn’t have any heal power) will only be taunting the boss, taking aggro from the real tank, and doing some damage. In case you still want to use guardian then you should have Offering too.

      But i would recommend you to focus on having heal powers in your loadout; i prefer having Ritualistic Word ( heal you and up to 3 allies) and Invocation of Renewal instead of Guardian and offering.

    2. muhammad

      i get the ior…

      but doesnt offering do the same thing as ritualistic word but give more power? i read that the description of offering is not what it really does

    3. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Offering and Ritualistic Word restore power over time. However, Offering restores Power over time to your pets (fury, guardian, and watcher) and non-player allies, and Ritualistic Word provides a shield for just the Watcher pet and restores Power over time.

      For DPS, when using your Fury pet it is recommended to have Offering to supply him with power over time and deal heave damage. On the other hand, Ritualistic Word focus only in your Watcher and additionally heal you and up to 3 allies, so you will receive healings for using the super-power and provide your Watcher power over time to heal your allies.

    4. muhammad

      so should u use the watcher or guardian for non-raid stuff and for raids change the pet to invocation of renewal? i noticed someone using a watcher healed more than me even when im higher level healer

    5. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      You can do use your Guardian for non-group stuff like mission, challenges or duos, but for alerts or raids you should use your Watcher or IOR

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello muhammad thanks for asking, i will recommend you transcendence because it will protect your group and restore Health and Power significantly

  37. Martin

    Why was invocation of renewal switched with ritualistic word invocation grants gold aura and group members under 35% heal faster what’s with the change I rw better than ior ?

    When it comes to the auras, what is your preferred rotation to get the most out of the gold aura? 1.Watcher
    2. Circle of Protection
    3. invocation
    4. rejuvenate
    5. rejuvenate
    6. rejuvenate
    7. CoP
    8. Invocation
    9. rejuvenate
    10. rejuvenate
    11. rejuvenate

    and repeat the steps, except watcher (unless dead)

    Does that sound about right to you? Obviously the watcher will stay out until it dies, so step one isn’t really a step if I already have it up when I come into the raid.

      Hello FroztAngel, thanks for sharing your rotation. We are currently updating our guides so this may help us 🙂

    2. FroztAngel

      So, that rotation sounds about right to you then? It has been awhile since I used my Sorcery Healer, so I just wanted to be sure I remember how it works. I’ve spent the last 6 months or so on the Villain side with my Earth Tank and kinda neglected my Hero healer, lol.

    3. FroztAngel

      Also, I forgot to add that I use “Boon of Souls” and “Transcendence” only when absolutely needed. Since Boon of souls gives the red aura, I try to only use it when there is trouble. Transcendence is used lightly due to it being a supercharge and for emergency use.

    4. dcuobloguide Post author

      Hi FroztAngel,
      I consider your rotation an excellent way to healer sorcery. However, with GU36 we are still researching what is the best build and loadout for every Power. When Sorcery gets updated you will see rotation and recommended mods 🙂

    5. FroztAngel

      Sounds good. I look forward to it!! My goal is to put the sorcery haters to rest. I’m tired of everyone saying nature is better, when I destroy nature healers in “healing out” every time.

    1. dcuobloguide Post author

      Hello Marting, thanks for your comment.
      I still recommend you to use Transcendence instead of Arbiter of Destiny because unlocking the last one will need 2 additional power points, and it will affect your healer stats

    2. Martin

      But say that I don’t spec those two points into shard of life because I’m using the watcher and I can spec into abiter would you recommend it instead of transcendence

    3. dcuobloguide Post author

      Hello Martin, thanks for passing by. I recommend you to use Transcendence instead of unlocking Arbiter of Destiny, because Transcendence will also restore your groups power and that will be helpful in raids.

    1. dcuobloguide Post author

      As Sorcery Healer you must focus in Gold Aura for critical heal chance, red aura is more for DPS Sorcery

    1. dcuobloguide Post author

      Hi Superpanda91,

      Soul well is a great power, but it needs to be put estrategically for being helpfull and has low cover area. If your allies are not near it, they dont receive healing.

      However, this build have Soul Well unlocked so you can replace Shard of Life for Soul Well if you like.
