@TangAce said in Main Healer Io Guide (Talent, Loadout, and Playstyle):
mmmhhhh, your loadouts ain't good, you totally need that cooldown reset on your dash at lvl 2, also the card granting moonlight from luna is better than the one restoring when you don't use cause it's 2% per lvl instead of one, with life link you probably don't need 4points in self heal, moonlight garden is pretty bad, it will just make you waste your stun on a random person and then you'll die cause you got flanked
this is from my ranked experience playing Io in high diamond games
and my main advice is to position Luna like she's grohk's totem, keep her close, but make sure enemies can't shoot her, this allows her to heal you, giving you moonlight, and prevent her from stunning random people, then she will prevent you from dying to a flank
of course you gotta reposition luna depending on where you go, that's why the card lowering redeploy cd is good
I have a kind of similar loadout, but I'm leaning toward Moonlight Garden more than Protectors recently only because Luna is very valuable on the point especially early in the game. Giving the tank the freedom to be aggressive or to take cover without having to sacrifice caping points. The redeploying reduction is important for this to be able to move Luna near you every now and then.
I personally prefer to add Sanctum of Faith because it is contestant, I wouldn't invest points into the self healing card.
Sanctum of Faith 5
Moonlight Garden / Protectors 4
Spirit Arrows 2
Crescent 2 ( a must have for escaping imo )
Broken Deity 2
