Claretta’s general leech setup. Tweak depending on the situation. Note: Leech healing can be very gear dependant.

Situational Abilities

Do or Die

You can switch Reap and Sew for Do or Die if you have a reliable tank and or are confident in your leeching skills. Beware that you will be rooted while this effect is active, so use it wisely.

Anima Vessel

This is a less powerful version of Reap and Sew. Especially useful in the last hell dungeon where the bosses frequently have reflecting shields, or in other situations where the whole team is taking a lot of damage. Substitute Energise or Full Momentum for this ability if you want to use it.

Cold Blooded

An alternative to Reap and Sew in some fights where you want to rapidly heal the whole group when Reap and Sew might not be as effective, for instance when the enemy is out of reach or for some reason cannot or should not be attacked.

Blood Shield

An Alternative to Energise, useful for gaining blood resources before a short fight or when a fight has moments where shooting a target isn’t possible for extended periods of time.

Three Round Burst & Lock and Load

Useful in place of Energise and Hip Fire in short fights that won’t last long enough to make Hip Fire useful.


I’ll keep this short because you really should be reading Claretta’s guide if you want to learn more about leech healing.

As most builds that make use of Elemental Force you require 5 builders, 1 filler and 2 consumers.

As you are using blood you can tap into your health to cast blood shot, by using 3 times Anima Shot and 2 times hip fire you will be able to follow this simple rotation.
