Archon – Chloromancer

Overview

The purpose of this build is to provide general Archon support while maximizing your outgoing raid heals. Your outgoing damage will be much lower but the point is to keep other raid members alive and viable.

  • Lowest DPS Archon there is but still capable of pulling decent numbers
  • All of Archon’s support
  • Highest healing with full Archon
  • Choice of AoE healing or single target emphasis
  • Heals only, no shields

How to Play

Above I have put a sample of your ten standard rotation buttons that you will use most often (there are others such as cleanses discussed later). The way I view these is as Archons standard rotation and the way they are setup does not accurately align with my bars but it is easier to visualize how it operates. The five on the left, Buffs Macro to Granite Salvo are the ones you will be using most often. These Have short cooldowns normally no longer than 30 seconds. The ones on the right are your big “burn” abilities, such as Lava Field and Flaring Power.

 


Other Abilities 

Steadfast Return +5 Mana Per Second
Cleansing Flame  AoE Cleanse
Illuminate +dmg by raid over 3s
Point to Point  When used brings up a reactive button anyone in a raid can use to port to your location

 

-Special Note

The spells  Enrage, Lava Field, Defend the Fallen, and Orchestra of the Planes apply a shared debuff to whoever receives it that prevents them from obtaining any of these spells effects. The cooldown is much less than this debuff which allows you to use it on different people.

Buffs

Vitality of Stone +Str, +Dex, +Int, +Wis
Lingering Dust +10% Cast Speed
Lifegiving Veil AoE Healing
*Synthesis Increased healing on one ally

*If specced into this

All of your Aura’s, Vitality of Stone, Shared Vigor. Arcane Aegis, Burnin Purpose are relatively short and refreshed or cast with Patron’s Rage or preferably may be precast.


Opener

Without Aura’s:

Patrons Rage > Ashen Defense > Crumbling Resist >  Piercing Beam > Illuminate

Aura’s Precast

Ashen Defense > Crumbling Resist > > Piercing Beam  > Illuminate

Buff’s Macro until Spark Shower goes off > Granite Salvo


Rotation

There is not necessarily a standard rotation. You want to keep each of these buffs refreshed. You have several heal spells which take priority over any debuff. Flaring Power and Lava Field are popped depending on the boss. Searing Vitality if nothing else to do.

It is easy to refresh Radiant Spores by casting Heal. Bloom which will cast on cooldown will launch 5 Vial Spores.


Cool Downs

The two big cool downs for Archon are Lava Field and Flaring Power.

Lava Field is a ground target ability and the included macro will automatically target yourself and cast it so you do not have to choose where to cast it. This ability increases raid DPS by 15%.
