The Banner of War aspect is the cornerstone of this build. It activates when you defeat a target with a melee finisher, sword, or glaive. When triggered, it raises a Banner of War that heals you and nearby allies with energy pulses. It also boosts melee damage by 40%, increases sword and glaive damage by 10% and 25%, respectively. Defeating additional targets refreshes the timer and can charge the banner up to four times for more frequent healing pulses.
