    Default FvS Respec help

    Hey guys,

    I plan to Lr my 10 year old FvS today to hopefully make him relevant again. Instead of wasting hours trying to filter through the forum builds as I have tended to do a lot lately. I figured I'd ask for a custom build from one of you guys that have a better scope of character planning than myself. What I have is a lvl 17 FvS that I used to heal with back in the day and I am wanting to bring him more in line with the current meta, as well as ditch the useless feats I may be holding on to. I will give as much info as I can about tomes n' such but as far as what type of character I plan to play (healer, caster...etc) I have no real goal, more or less looking for the more interesting, ease of entry to epics, type of build. I solo a lot because I am trying to relearn everything but I plan to party and raid soon as I am good and ready.

    Toon Info:
    First Life Lawful Good Drow FvS (17)
    +2 Tome of Con and Charisma
    I have access to Harper enhancements only
    The character description says 28 point champion build so I am guessing that may not go up upon LR'ing
    I have a lesser HoW and a +20 if it were to make more sense to splash in a little something extra.

    Thanks,
    Von

    Definitely need a goal.

    Pure FvS raid healers are super simple to the point where everyone should have one. But they're purely heal focused and DC's outside of frog for froggable mobs aren't worth a poo. Not incredibly hard to hit 3k hp outside of reaper and approach 1000 positive spellpower. Run in Sentinel for HP and Renewal and twist Consecration so you have 2 consistent AOE heals with the Wall. Super easy to play and helps to guarantee raid completions but zero soloing ability. If 1000 spellpower behind Renewal and the heal wall can't keep a tank up then nothing can. Most raid healers hover closer to 700 spellpower and only have the wall. As an example this type of build can easily prop up the entire group while beating down the mounds in Baba in a low reaper setting through just wall/consecration and using beacons at the appropriate moments.

    DC casters are really good right now, like ridiculous good. But without max gear, +8 tomes, and a ton of past lives they aren't greatly survivable in reaper and dead healers in raids is a great cause for unhappy parties. I personally wouldn't bother to run a DC/DPS FvS if I didn't have the appropriate tome, destinies finished, the +2 festive augment, and gear waiting for it unless your plan is run LN. If your gear is bad, don't have destinies open for twists, and your dc's are only say 80-90 then you're gonna be less useful than the raid spec'd healer for questing because nothing is going to land and at least the healer is a great healer.

    Now of course there are people that will say "yeah but my FvS gets dc's near 120, the heal wall, and 3k hp in reaper" Just understand the amount of investment that takes. They have the tomes, all the loot, all the important lives, 60+ reaper points, all the destinies finished, the rare augments. All of it.

    But like I said, you either need a tangible goal or spend the next year investing in that character to the point in can contribute in all content.

    My goal for now will be to make it to 20 and be there just long enough to TR most likely, so maybe I will just go full on heals and LFM hop. Right now my character is an absolute mess and any form of heroic viable build to make 17-20 less of a hassel for now is probably what I should do. I am not opposed to leveling in epics with him but being a returning player and completely new to Epics I don't trust my healing capabilities. It sounds like a first life drow FvS isn't quite as capable in epics for anything but healing. (with my current gear and know how anyways)

    Ohhhhhh...

    If you're just going to TR I'd just use a lesser heart and spec into a evo build. With moderate gear your implosion and soundburst will be good enough. Points into both Beacon for heals and AoV for nukey stuffs. Capstone in either one is okay. Truthfully though if the build is first life you can just healbot through LFM's to hit 20 since the xp requirement is so low.

    Save that +20 though in case you end up doing something you really hate. In the future if you make it another FvS Aasimar is absolutely the go-to race. Even with zero racial ap you should still be able to spare 7 points to pick up all of the cores for regen uses of lay on hands and in most cases you can spare 16 points and pick up a bunch of heal amp, positive spellpower, and the Ascendant Bond in the top tier also.

    Ya this has been one of my issues returning to the game trying to find builds to replace all my toons current ones, Race choices aren't there for me, enhancement lines, probably the biggest is the free AP everyone has after years of prgression lol.
    Not complaining by any means everyone should get the juicy rewards for puting the time in, it just sucks trying to find relevant/viable first life build options when half the builds are tagged like this; 87th life, PAYED RACE, Harperfalcon +12 supreme tome of awesome
    I kid of course but anyways i'm gonna throw together a quick Build and post it for feedback, I'm sure i am overthinking it but oh well.

    And ty for the feedback!

    (Edit: Sneaking in another question) Would it make sense to farm Racial lives vs Heroic because of the AP first?
