Incorporating a few different models from the Heavensward era, the new Lakeland Garb of Healing from Shadowbringers is available to healers level 71 or higher, dropping as it does from the first dungeon of the new expansion, Holminster Switch. Unlike most of the Lakeland sets (and re-colored sets in general), this set of Lakeland garb pulls from different sets to create something of a new look, even if the overall style remains the same.
The main five pieces of the set include the Lakeland Hat of Healing, Lakeland Robe of Healing, Lakeland Gloves of Healing, Lakeland Breeches of Healing, and Lakeland Thighboots of Healing. In terms of models, only the robe and gloves are new to healers (originating from Dusk Vigil’s Ishgardian Historian’s set for casters), so this set isn’t a full on role-swap, unfortunately. The hat originates from the Halonic Priest’s set from the Vault, and the breeches and thighboots are originally from the Ishgardian Chaplain’s set, the healing companion set to the Historian’s garb from Dusk Vigil. For weapons, Astrologians have a Lakeland Astrometer, White Mages a Lakeland Cane, and Scholars a Lakeland Codex (pictured above).
As is the case with all of the Lakeland sets, the Healing Garb is non-dyeable, limiting its glamour applications significantly. While its muted brown and black color scheme works well for a priest of the dark on the First, it’s unlikely to make any waves outside of that context. Despite that flaw, the set is well-modeled, having no significant clipping issues for hair or tails, though as with most robes there is some possibility of hand clipping depending on race and idle pose. Outside of that small issue, however, you should find no trouble with the Lakeland healing garb.
