Tips and Tactics

  • A good panic-button measure, but try to think ahead to when the 15 seconds is up. Best used on the last fight of an encounter you simply have to survive.
  • This ability can save the raid during a boss fight or an unprepared pull on trash mobs. Make sure to let the healers know you used it as a warning to keep your health up because the effect will end and the extra health will be gone in 15 seconds.
  • Can be used in conjunction with [Enraged Regeneration]. This will increase your total health and thus increase the amount of health regenerated. This technique only works if you are less than full health when you start (true of most health gain techniques).
