Can spam
off-cooldown during extended trades to seriously limit the amount of damage he would normally take due to the constant shielding.

Vulnerable

's healing will not be enough to keep him healthy.
His all-in is fairly telegraphed. If he misses
, he can't close the distance. So dodge that and it's easy to kite him.
Completely immobile during combat.
