Evaluation[edit]

Pros
  • Provides effective anti-pressure / support healing.
  • Can remove conditions from the entire party with Cautery Signet (from level 20).
  • Possess a hard Resurrection skill.
  • Uses Signet of Synergy to heal himself as well instead of just other allies.
Cons
  • Possess only one (expensive) adrenaline skill to manage energy, and is vulnerable to skills like Vocal Minority or Well of Silence, both present in Nightfall campaign.
  • Low damage output.
  • Uses Signet of Synergy as self-heal before using Leader's Comfort which often offers a larger heal.

Dialogue[edit]

Towns and outposts:

"My parents named me after Sogolon the Protector. It should be no surprise I was destined for greatness."

Throne of Secrets:

"At last you take your place among legends. Like me!"

The Norn Fighting Tournament:

No! This cannot be!

Trivia[edit]
