support elder tree


5BGood effect and duration but being cast only once during early battle might not have a great impact
15ADecent sustain effect with a moderate cooldown
25BConsidering the cooldown, cc immunity is not reliable and gained energy over a minute is less than a quarter of an ultimate
mage elder tree


5SGreat effect, no cooldown; easily the best level 5 ability across the board
15CThe effect appears weak, but maybe in long battles, it will make a difference
25C A once per batt e weak effect triggered when you’re almost dead
warrior elder tree


5BThe effect can be either good or useless, but due to the popularity of shields it will more often than not see use in battle
15BGood effect but the shield is too weak to justify the long(est) cooldown and short duration
25CThe effect and duration are rather weak for a once per battle ability (that will be cast early on)
tank elder tree


5CNot bad not reliable either; sometimes it might save the tank, but it’s weak to burst
15AEven if the tank gets burst down early on he won’t go down without AoE damage for 9% of enemy health plus debuff
25BHas multiple chances during a battle to keep a tank alive
ranger elder tree


5CMediocre to good ability held back by its once per battle cast
15SGreat effect on a short cooldown, although it won’t work versus bosses
25AA good ability that can be great situationally, versus enemies with summons;won’t work versus bosses
