AOE DPS with Healing Support.
Build Notes: Our “My First 60″ builds are targeted for about 60 total points. They represent the initial builds for a player starting the game, but wanting to play a focused role. Thus, inner wheel builds are incomplete builds and NOT intended for mid-game or later play.
I was trying to put together a My First 60 build using AR, and every-time I built one, I wasn’t too happy with the results. I ended up swapping over to a support healing with AOE dps instead. This build has serious AOE dps with a self proccing heal, while still giving the player the option to swap over to a targeted heal when needed.

This build requires 63 total AP to put together. The build uses two builder, Blade Torrent and Forking Paths. The use of two builders allows you to use Blade Torrent to give an afflicted state (and has hate) then swap over to Forking Paths to take advantage of the afflicted state to give a self heal. Further, by using an AOE builder with AR as your off-weapon, you can build full stacks of resources on each target in your AOE effect. Once you have build up resources you would use Fire at will (AR AOE resource consumer) to use up the AR resources on that target, then tab to the next target and use Fire in the Hole (AR resource consumer), then tab and use Fire in the Hole again. You would do this until no more targets have full AR resources, at that point, you can use Balanced Blade using up your Blade resources. By combining AR with an AOE builder, you can fire off your AR consumers multiple times.
Additionally, you are kicking out self passive healing with both Lick your Wounds and Forking Paths. Stunning Swirl gives a stun which triggers a penetrate buff that triggers Immortal Spirit the effect that when you penetrate you get a heal over time.
The build also has Anima Shot, and while it doesn’t have a healing finisher, it can allow single target healing when needed.
The default rotation is; as suggested above, starting with a Blade Torrent x1, followed up by 4x Forking Paths. Then you trigger Fire at will and Fire in the Hole until your AR resources are used. Once that is complete, you would trigger Stunning Swirl.
On difficult fights, you should trigger Sharp Blade fairly early so you can receive the penetrate heal effects.
For a main healing build, you would swap out Forking Paths for a similar build that instead of having you do AOE dsp triggers with your AR resources, you would trigger Shot of Anima. This would take more then 60 points to be able to use both abilities, therefore a “My first 60″ will be devoted to this build instead of it being an alternative for this specific build.
