Tank build that focus on DoT and Retaliation, we raise Res for Thrice Was She Wronged and White Worm damage. Res also boost Brand Enemy, Darcozzi Fire Shield and Battle Forged fire damage, and all the heals we have. Dumping Dex and Might because we don't need melee and most of our abilities have instant cast time (Brand Enemy, Thrice Was She Wronged, Lays on Hands).

 

Troubadour is perfect for 'Come Soft Winds of Death' and 'Ancient Memory' because the Brisk Recitation modal increase Phrase rate, and Lingering time doesn't matter for these two Phrases(because you get an initial tick or DoT when the phrase started).

 

So with this build the DoTs we have are: Brand Enemy, Come Soft Winds of Death. Retaliation we have: Minor Flame Shield, Battle Forged. Heals we have: Lays on Hands, Ancient Memory.

 

The strategy is once combat started, use Brand Enemy to mark as many enemy as possible, and leave one Zeal for Lay on Hands/Flame shield. Then we can just stand there waiting enemies to die while spamming the offensive invocations when we have enough phrases.

 

This is a very low maintenance if we can set the AI to abuse Brand Enemy, being very tanky and does a lot damages even under CC. Later we can added Shared Flame and Aefyllath Ues Mith Fyr for 40% fire lash for allies, and Exalted Endurance + Ancient Memory for double healings.
