    Favorite Self-Heal?

    I was mostly curious what most guardians are taking as their self heal slot skill and why.

    I like to take the signet, mainly because of the passive, but also... it just seems to heal for more. With my current spec, Shelter heals for 5k and has 2 seconds of blocking, but I gladly exchange the 2 seconds for about 4k more healing + condition removal every 10 seconds.

    I use the one (I forget its name) that heals allies. It's slow to give you the heal, but hey, you can heal allies with it.

    Why else would you play guardian?

    Personally I use the signet, mostly for its passive, I don't find myself activating it that much. This and the damage reduction signet are like perma-glued to my skillbar, but then again, I love using signets in general.

    (Allies get my improved virtue of resolve passive effect, so the heal slot remains an ego choice )

    I get the impression that passive effects in general are pretty weak, compared to active skills.

    In direct comparison? I agree and think they should be. Active skills are more dependent on proper timing and therefore should hold an advantage.

    But as mentioned before, I don't use the heal that frequently, so the signet with its passive effect contributes more than an active skill would.

    Healing Breeze?

    For my own part, I help allies with the shout "Hold the Line!" and "Save Yourselves!" -- then if I pick up a condition from allies, usually use Smite Condition. But even if I don't use that, the signet of resolve cures conditions every ten seconds anyway. Which may or may not be very helpful, depending on when it last pulsed and how long the current condition lasts.

    I personally think Healing Breeze could use some loving. Right now it is totally not worth it to take, I think I'm more useful using my F2 and the shouts to help allies than I would be with healing breeze. So in other words, I agree with nkuvu on that note.

    Healing breeze, yes. Thanks.

    I also bring shouts. But if I am in danger, I often move back and hit healing breeze, which means ally frontlines get some free healing.

    It seems to me that with traiting and combos that guardians have lots of ways to share healing with allies. I don't feel too guilty about using the self-heal primarily for myself using the signet while I'm throwing around symbols, shouts, etc. that are taking care of allies.
