Useful Strategies and Tips

Zeal. This unique trait allows Whitemane to maintain the health of several team members at the same time by healing the damage dealt to her. Don’t forget to activate this buff with Desperate Plea, Clemency and Scarlet Aegis abilities. It is advisable to do this ahead of time to maximize healing. It is better to activate this trait under the action of Scarlet Aegis, in order to minimize the loss of armour or in cases when you are sure that enemies cannot damage you.

Desperate Plea has no cooldown, but its mana cost increases with each stack of Desperation. Despite its low healing, it is ideal for activating Zeal on a target. The main thing is not to forget to remove Desperation stacks using the appropriate skills.

Inquisition and Clemency. Both skills must be channelled, that roots you in place. Be careful, because enemies can quickly take advantage of this. For maximum damage, it is advisable to use Inquisition after casting Searing Lash. Clemency and Inquisition remove a stack of Desperation, so use them as often as possible to lower your mana cost.

Searing Lash has a short cooldown and no mana costs to spam this skill in combat. The main thing is to train them to hit correctly.

Scarlet Aegis is a very useful skill in Whitemane’s arsenal. Besides a good healing and armour buff, it also activates Zeal buff on targets within its radius. This allows several members of your team to restore health very quickly.

Divine Reckoning is suitable for those who are dealing with the healing of their team with Zeal. Good damage will help you win a teamfight and restore health and mana.
