Here’s where we can debate gear options for Alani.
Being an Eldrid character, anything with -shield traits is desirable.
I think any Alani ought to be running a +Attack Speed gear, you can get a common with a -shield trait and no shard cost and end up with close to +10% attack speed right at the start of the match. This also has the benefit of leaving your helix options open later in the tree - she has so many ways of speccing into additional Osmosis generation that I can’t see the +20% attack speed helix ever being necessary.
I’m also doubtful as to the usefulness of -cooldown gear, her tier 3 (which is on the same level as the +20% attack speed as it happens) gives her a half second cooldown reduction for every hit on Torrent. She has no problems bringing her skills back online.
I don’t think reload speed or recoil gear have any major effect on her, if any at all. She’s not a single target attacker so shield pen is also probably out. She’s not a tank or melee attacker and probably won’t be getting CC’d much so CC reduction or damage reduction also are probably not necessary.
So, other candidates are healing power, health regen, max health, and healing received. Her natural regen seems a bit sluggish compared to other Eldrid, so regen gear might be useful, that said if she’s playing well she can be dumping heals on herself every few seconds. I think Healing Power and Healing Received would be great on her, it’s a double whammy when she targets herself with Wellspring.
