- 碗装薄荷配菜水果沙拉 Feast option with additional concentration
- 模板:Giver can be an easier stat to obtain over Minstrel's but loses effective health.
- Superior Sigil of Superior Sigil of Concentration better boon uptime.
- Superior Sigil of Superior Sigil of Energy defensive option.
- Superior Rune of Superior Rune of Mercy good option for GvG or small fights.
- Superior Rune of Superior Rune of the Zephyrite decent option if looking for superspeed uptime.

- Under General Options / User Interface check "Always show squad health bars" and "Always show party health bars". These will make it much easier to keep track of who needs your support. "Thick squad health bars" and "Thick party health bars" are up to personal preference.
- Under "Squad Options" uncheck "View as a grid". This will allow you to keep track of your allies' boons, conditions and health, enabling a better decision-making and skill management.
- Having 2 Hammers is purely for the stacking sigil. As soon as you get the 25 stacks and gets out of combat, swap back to the Hammer without the stacking sigil.
- You can freely swap between your skill sets (Hammer/ 医疗包/ 试剂枪). Avoid downtime!
- 医疗包 is where you will spend most of your time using 医疗喷剂 for a continuous AoE healing.
- Outside of Med Kit, a great portion of your healing comes from 分散治疗 , which coupled with your traits and several outgoing healing modifiers (from sigils and consumables), provides enormous and constant ticking heals to allies.
- 药雾熏蒸, 净化区域 and 净化机械 are key skills since all conditions you cleanse turn into boons through 刻意净化 .
- Superspeed doesn't stack duration and new application will remove the old one even if it is longer duration. Therefore, try to not overlap gyros unless it is necessary. Also blasts finishers on lightning fields will also provide AoE Superspeed, besides the gyro's final pulse, enabling more access to superspeed.
All Gyro skills provide AoE Superspeed, keeping group mobility high and averting slowing conditions. Bear in mind that the superspeed proc isn't immediate. Timing the gyros' usage to proc the superspeed at the right moment is important.
- 功能机型 use it to double rez by activating it from a distance and then helping out manually. It also procs .
- Can also be used for the instantly AoE Superspeed field it gives.
- 净化机械 use to quickly remove conditions and apply AoE superspeed.
- 侦测脉冲 grants AoE Revealed in a large area, bringing a strong group stealth counterplay. Also useful to remove Aegis from enemies when there is nothing to reveal.
- 壁垒机械 provides a lightning field and 4 seconds of a strong damage reduction for allies, which redirects some of the damage (approximately 35%) to the caster while providing Barrier to him. In severe spikes, it can be dangerous to the Scrapper.
- 防御力场 is one of your strongest defensive cooldowns, providing 3 stacks of Stability and an anti-projectile dome. Use it to disrupt projectile pressure and to fill stability gaps on allies.
- 潜行机械 is a very strong skill if coordinated with your group for stealth engages. Also convenient to safely stomp enemies and ressurect allies.
- 医疗喷剂 is your bread and butter healing skill. When paired with Quickness from 施加斥力 it brings an even greater healing pressure.
- 绷带冲击 and 体力爆发 grant a substantial healing burst.
- For Bandage Blast, the closer you are to an isolated ally, more bandages can hit him, providing an even stronger healing.
- 净化区域 grants a 300-radius water field which cleanses conditions every pulse. Use it to soften incoming condition pressure from scourge's shades for example.
- 灌注炸弹 abuse the 900-range, place it on spots that your group will be. Also throw it on light, water or lightning fields to benefit from the combo finisher. Synergizes with 治愈引爆 .
- 自我包扎 besides healing the caster, it cleanses, grants Protection and heals nearby allies as well. Can be used to provide a burst heal for allies, but should be saved for personal use.
- Bandage Self usage triggers every healing skill related trait, 医疗包 usage doesn't.
- 药雾熏蒸 cleanses conditions on allies only (not on the caster) every pulse. Similar to Firebrand's mantras, it works as a 450-range conal ability, therefore try to position yourself a little behind to maximize the number of affected allies. Usable to go through shade bombs and sustain during heavy enemy engages.
- 超级试剂 should be casted off cooldown on spots that your allies will be for more sustain and whenever minor condition clear is needed.
- 治疗喷雾 is a stunbreak and should only be used for that purpose.
- 强酸炸弹 use it whenever a blast finisher is needed. Synergizes with 治愈引爆 .
You should avoid staying in hammer as dealing damage isn't your role, but each of the hammer skills is situationally useful
- 雷霆一击 use it to catch out targets that don't have stability.
- 电击护盾 is a personal block and defensive cooldown, and can also be used for body blocking. Save it for panic situations where none defensive cooldowns are avaliable.
- 火箭冲锋 gap closer skill useful to engage or retreat while evading damage. Provides 2 leap finishers.
- You can cancel the aftercast of Rocket Charge by swapping to a kit and going back to the Hammer (drop the kit with the weapon swap key). Very helpful in situations where you want to leap on a lightning field only once (to proc the trait) without being stuck on the animation for like 3 seconds or landing on a dangerous spot.
- 电子回旋 reflects projectiles and should be used to body block projectiles for allies. It's also a whirl finisher, meaning it can be used on top of light fields for minor condition cleanse for example.
- High spike damage
