Coach's Weird Darkness Build

So, I have an AoPM CC/Healer and an AoRP Healer, now I am looking for a different, interesting, and useful way to do an AoED build that I can bring on raids when needed. I mean, I could make just regular AoED healer, but I want something different enough from the other two that it doesn't feel like a copy. So, I'm intrigued by this new Darkness DPS form and I've always wanted a Darkness build. This is kind of a Healer/CC/DPS build, passable at any of those, excellent at none. Can CC Kiga dogs and Ape hearts. I wanted to fit in a stun for Eido reds, but just could not manage it. Can heal the DPS stack pretty well. Bunch of passive heal DoTs to go with the active heals. Mainly there for AoED and provide backup on whatever.

    For a AoED support build that also wants to CC, its alright, though lacking in reses on the support side. I wouldn't say personal dps is main part of the build, since it lacks a strong single-target attack. But you also don't really need one of those attacks for a group-oriented Support build either- esp when your presence buffs ally dps anyways.

    Yeah, I might dump Summon Shadow for Ebon Ruin or some other good ST attack, but really I figure for group content I'll spend most of my time spamming Lifedrain and the other heal stuff.

    For CCing, I'd unslot the passive, probably.

    I could just dump the idea of doing any CCing at all, trash Ego Sleep and take Ebon Ruin. I might do that. I do kind of like the Consumption on Grasping Shadows, though.

    Okay, updated. I moved stuff to the end that I might want to change.

    Tried this in the QWZ and pretty much rofflestomps. I'm not even really sure why. Just used the addition of a Psionic Accelerator (of course) and the spider sidekick device (actually part of her background/theme). The Shadow summons are significantly better than I expected.
