<pvxbig> [build prof=Monk/x HealingPrayers=12+1+1 ProtectionPrayers=7+1 DivineFavor=8+1][Patient Spirit][Word of Healing][Dismiss Condition][Guardian][Cure Hex][Holy Veil][Optional][optional][/build]
- [[Shield Bash@0]: Better against Sins and an easy defense option, but isn't that great against constant amounts of physical pressure.
- [[Shield Stance@8]: A four second blocking skill with a short recharge and no drawbacks.
- [[Disciplined Stance@8]: Provides blocking as well as armor, which also helps against unblockable attacks and spells.
- [[Bonetti's Defense@3]: Energy management as well as 5 seconds of blocking that doesn't require extra attribute spread.
- [[Dolyak Signet@0]: For a great anti-kd without any cost and +10 armor, but the movement reduction can hurt.
- [[Balanced Stance@8]: Very useful anti knockdown and anti critical. Recommended to combine with Bonnettti's in order to provide the energy management to simply tank damage
- [[Return@6]: to shadowstep to allies and avoid melee.
- [[Dark Escape@6]: for a great anti-spike as well as IMS.
- [[Smoke Powder Defense@6]: to stop massive melee damage for a while.
- [[Armor of Sanctity@6]: For quick panic button that prots and provides AoE weakness.
- [[Conviction (PvP)@6]: For use with Armor of Sanctity for a substantial armor boost.
- Survivor's Insignias or Disciple's Insignias, with Runes of Vitae/Vigor; run Wanderer's in Fort Aspenwood if playing on the Kurzick side.

- Signet of Rejuventaion Useful for an emergency heal if having problems with energy management.
- Sprint in AB
