Attributes and Skills Edit

<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]

Monk-icon-small / Warrior-icon-small

  • Shield Bash [[Shield Bash@0]: Better against Sins and an easy defense option, but isn't that great against constant amounts of physical pressure.
  • Shield Stance [[Shield Stance@8]: A four second blocking skill with a short recharge and no drawbacks.
  • Disciplined Stance [[Disciplined Stance@8]: Provides blocking as well as armor, which also helps against unblockable attacks and spells.
  • Bonetti&#039;s Defense [[Bonetti's Defense@3]: Energy management as well as 5 seconds of blocking that doesn't require extra attribute spread.
  • Dolyak Signet [[Dolyak Signet@0]: For a great anti-kd without any cost and +10 armor, but the movement reduction can hurt.
  • Balanced Stance [[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

Monk-icon-small / Assassin-icon-small

  • Return [[Return@6]: to shadowstep to allies and avoid melee.
  • Dark Escape [[Dark Escape@6]: for a great anti-spike as well as IMS.
  • Smoke Powder Defense [[Smoke Powder Defense@6]: to stop massive melee damage for a while.

Monk-icon-small / Dervish-icon-small

  • Armor of Sanctity [[Armor of Sanctity@6]: For quick panic button that prots and provides AoE weakness.
  • Conviction [[Conviction (PvP)@6]: For use with Armor of Sanctity for a substantial armor boost.


Equipment Edit

The Equipment Template for this build is:
  • Survivor's Insignias or Disciple's Insignias, with Runes of Vitae/Vigor; run Wanderer's in Fort Aspenwood if playing on the Kurzick side.
  • A high set (a wand and focus with two 15/-1 mods).
  • A 40/20/20% Protection staff.
  • A 40/40 Heal Set.
  • Spears with +5 energy/-5 energy, +30hp/Defense and +10 vs "x" shields.
  • Max Q7/8 Tactics shield if you meet the requirements, otherwise a Strength shield.

Usage Edit

  • Preveil necessary targets (yourself, frontliners, etc)
  • Heal with Word of Healing and Patient Spirit
  • Use Guardian and Dismiss Condition as necessary
  • When under pressure, use your secondary skills to protect yourself eg:
  • Shield Bash vs assassin chains.
  • Shield Stance or Disciplined Stance vs melee to get Guardian up easily.
  • Balanced Stance vs attackers with KD (Assassins and Hammer Warriors mostly).
  • Dark Escape vs anything to reduce damage.
  • Return vs any melee to snare them and get away.

Counters Edit

  • Standard anti-caster counters
  • Anti-block skills, like Wild Blow and Rigor Mortis

Variants Edit





  • Kinetic Armor: huge armor boost that can be easily maintained, but which is weak to enchantment removal.
  • Glyph of Lesser Energy: if often paired with Kinetic Armor for energy management.


  • Shield of Force: powerful anti-spike pre-prot - not as useful as Shield Bash, but recharges faster.
  • Vow of Piety: a useful stance that can be easily maintained.
