Tips and Tactics[]

  • Don't be afraid to prioritize high damage equipment over gear with Healing. Wisdom is useful mainly for keeping a large mana pool, and Healing Shot increases its damage based on your ranged weapon's strength.
  • Despite using a ranged weapon, Scout / Knight prefers to be close to allies to help them with Transformation Torrent. Enhanced Armor helps you handle damage from enemies when you get close to the rest of your party for this very reason.
  • Despite having healing abilities, this isn't a primary healing class. Use your abilities to supplement the party healer.
  • Switching to a Knight / Scout gives the player a decent tanking option with a surprising amount of self-sustain.

Notes[]

Torrential Torrent helps give Scout / Knight a niche role when it comes to groups. This is a good combination to use if you want to help your party succeed, even if they make mistakes with their own skills, whether it comes to rotations or timing.
