Match types Edit

Annihilation Edit

  • Straightforward tactics for Annihilation. Monks spellbreaker #1 as he goes in and takes the initial wave of spells, the sins proceed to spike targets down (since Signet of Toxic Shock is armor-ignoring, feel free to target wars and paragons as often as monks and eles).

Relic Runs Edit

  • #4 and #5 run relics. Be sure to cast Storm Djinn's Haste before picking up a relic to get the 20% enchant bonus.
  • Monks chain Spell Breaker and Guardian on the runner to make him impervious to any attempts to slow his progress.
  • #1 and #3 work together to hamper a single team's runner, while #2 keeps the second team immobile. #3 tries to stay near the middle, in case the monks need a bip.

Capture Points Edit

  • 1, 2, 5, and 7 make one team, while 3, 4, 6, and 8 make the other.
  • Split to maintain control of the middle altar and your original base.
  • If control of the middle altar is impossible, send a team off to the base of whoever controls the altar.
  • Don't get frustrated at a team wipe, remain focused and take the time while dead to issue more detailed orders.

King of the Hill Edit

  • Put your Ghostly Hero on the altar. If another Ghostly already has the altar, throw Shadow Shroud on him and spike him down.
  • Maintain Spell Breaker and Healing Seed on him as much as possible.
  • Pester the more dangerous opponent by spiking monks/mesmers.
