Salvation Salvation

  • Generous Abundance Generous Abundance — Heal allies around yourself when using a Legend skill. Heal allies around Ventari's Tablet when using a Legendary Centaur skill. Dragon Facet skills and Ventari's Will cannot activate this trait.

Renegade Renegade


  • For more information about Life Siphoning, refer to Life Steal.
  • The summon can be killed, like all Legendary Renegade skills.
  • The damage done when allies attack scales with the renegade's power, but not with any outgoing damage modifiers, including weapon strength, vulnerability, and target armor.
  • The healing done when allies attack scales with the renegade's healing power, but not with outgoing healing power.
  • Kalla occasionally shouts "Lieutenant, take the field!" on use.
  • Lasts for 22 seconds, if energy hasn't been depleted.
Dismiss Lieutenant Soulcleave puts this skill on 1 second cooldown instead of the 3 seconds listed if it pulsed at least once.
The tooltip has an incorrect heal scaling for PvE and WvW thus the value will be too low if the player has healing power.
