GW2. Raid Build. Aegis Heal Tank Chronomancer. Mesmer PvE 2023.
Last Update: Jan 2023
The Aegis Heal Chronomancer is a mesmer build with high survivability through blocks and invulnerability, and has the unique option to grant quickness or alacrity depending on what their party needs while using the same set of gear but only swapping a few skills and a trait. It also provides plenty of aegis and stability to protect allies from taking damage, but is not as powerful at pure healing to sustain allies who have already taken damage. The wide range of utility and CC makes this a very versatile tank for most bosses mechanics.
Role: Tank Support
Always open with Focus 5 or Scepter 2 to gain clones, dodging also gives clones. Swap to Sword/Shield and use Sword 3 and perform the Continuum Split combo:
Continuum Split: 2/3 Clones > Shield 5 + Continuum Split > Well of Precognition > Gravity Well > Use All Shatters and Mantra Charges > Leave Continuum Rift and Repeat
Always shatter F1 then F2 at 3 clones when on top of your party to give them Quickness and use the F3 for CC. If playing the Alacrity variant, then place your wells on top of your allies. Wells will also heal allies.
Mantras will only heal your allies on the initial charge, so if you want more healing you must use all charges of the mantra immediately to get the cooldown faster. You can also save the effect of the mantra to ration out more stability/cleanse if need be.
Healing Sources: Creating Illusions (Dodging), Charging Mantras, Wells
Reflect projectiles using your Focus 4/5
Protect allies with Aegis by Charging Mantra of Concentration, Well of Precognition, Distortion

Noticed when I reloaded the page from aegis-quickness-chrono build that it is now redirecting to this heal build. Not sure if that was intentional due to the build being outdated, but I wanted to point it out. Luckily I took some screenshots before reloading the page 🙂
the previous version was outdated due to other support builds being power crept over time to give healing and boons, yet the chronomancer only gave boons and minimal dps. Now that chronomancer can give healing and boons it can compete with other support options, thus the change in build name
