With all the insane burst from everyone right now (both power and condi bursts) I survive much better with this build than traditional celestial ones, and actually being able to use your heal skill is fun for once! Really nice build.

[You can't edit your own posts?] Not sure about the fire master trait though. They all are pretty lackluster, and I'm not sure if 250 condition damage is better than 30 seconds firegrab and 10 seconds burning speeds, plus spammable dragon's breath. Might on fire aura is the weakest trait here IMHO.

You could just take the signet GM in Earth if you want to use restoration signet.
