Some suggestions for the Support class.

I feel like the Banner (Support only) should give a group wide buff and or a Buff to heals while equipped.
This would encourage Supports to use sword and banner in groups.
The banner seems like a great idea but under utilised in it's current state.

Agreed. I don't have a single reason to equip a Sword and Banner.

I'd also like to add that a Sentinel at the minimum should be able to equip a small shield.

Not sure I'd support, (no pun intended) the shield be part. I think it's enough what they can use atm and that would detract from the banner. But I do agree there needs to be changes.

I would like to see maybe a stamina buff for people in group, Only a small one, maybe a tick every other round. This would add to warlord for example you get stamina buff anyway. Or if this would unbalance the game. Then have it so it helps with group or single healing buffs +5 every 10 levels.

I think shield should have armor weight and people can choose to use them or not and not be defender only.

Second, I think there is a very good reason to wear a banner is because it helps defense. As a support, I get targeted by mobs in a group very often. Even so much as maybe even off tanking mobs that come in aggro for a good % of the time.


I think also is just buff the use of the banner, I feel like that 5% less damage is not that useful when you consider you do a lot more damage with a 2h weapon instead.

Shields are defenders only. Each "style" of weapon needs to be recognizable as to which role is equipping it. If we gave supporters shields then they would get mixed up with defenders visually.

Either way: banners are just a "stat stick". There will be many more stat sticks (books? mugs? shoes? even better banners!) as the game progresses. We can't give you amazing equipment right out of the gate - it needs room to get better.

I understand the intent of the banner, and love the concept, however I can say that for levels 1-25 so far, using the staff has always been a far better choice for both soloing and grouping. Maybe at higher levels banners will have a bonus making them worthwhile.

The level 20 banner is amazing even has haste on it which effects everything you do. I have used it on Madmedic on the previous build.

Wow, I've yet to see this! I've seen the dropped level 20 banner in Dryfoot, but it doesn't have haste. I'll have to check the crafted version.

I haven't got back to lvl 20 yet (close) I will have to test the dropped lvl 20 banners and crafted ones. As we all know things can and do change fast here (Kudos to the devs).

Our stamina buff has been nerfed to be useless atm unfortunately. Maybe they'll give some love back to the Warlords at some point.

The banners for lvl 20 are junk. Less stats then the Redshore banner you get in Meadowlands at a lower lvl. Gear stats and upgrades from lower to higher levels seems oddly broken at the moment

They must of changed its stats since the wipe. Before it had no haste and less resilience and combat movement than the Redshore banner in Meadowlands

Gonna keep plugging away this weekend after the stress test on Saturday. Gotta be some tasty banners hiding out there :)

As somebody who loves a Warlord in the group for this buff, I assure you it's not useless. Makes healing much easier and down time between pulls is less.

Bear in mind if it's working properly you o ly gain 8 sta over 30 secs. Your innate regen gives more than that by far
