  • Fear Me nerf.

This build had been designed for the following use:

This build was in the category No category specified before being archived.

This HA team build is designed to quickly roll opponents through heavy pressure and energy denial, while maintaining a solid defense with two and a half monks.

3 Fear Me Assassins Edit

<pvxbig> [build prof=assas/warri critic=8+1 dagger=11+1+1 tactic=9 deadly=8+1][golden fox strike][wild strike][nine tail strike][impale][fear me][soldier's stance][disrupting dagger][resurrection signet][/build] </pvxbig>

<pvxbig> [build prof=assas/warri critic=8+1 dagger=11+1+1 tactic=9 deadly=8+1][golden fox strike][wild strike][nine tail strike][impale][fear me][soldier's stance][watch yourself][resurrection signet][/build] </pvxbig>

<pvxbig> [build prof=assas/warri critic=8+1 dagger=11+1+1 tactic=9 deadly=8+1][golden fox strike][wild strike][nine tail strike][impale][fear me][soldier's stance][siphon speed][resurrection signet][/build] </pvxbig>


  • Zealous Daggers of Fortitude with a 15%>50 or 15% while enchanted insription (these are required with only 9 in critical strikes).
  • ______ Spear of Fortitude with a +5 energy inscription, and a Tactics Shield of Fortitude with +armor vs. the elements inscriptions.
  • Rune of Clarity if you feel that blind will become a problem, but with an RC and a draw, it shouldn't be much of a problem.


Crippling Anthem ParagonEdit

<pvxbig> [build prof=p/any spear=12+1+1 leadership=9+1 command=9+1][vicious attack][spear of Lightning][go for the eyes][crippling anthem][anthem of weariness][make haste][song of concentration][signet of return][/build] </pvxbig>


  • Spear of your choice with a fortitude mod and a 15%>50 inscription.
  • Command Shield of Fortitude with the proper inscriptions.


Orders WarderEdit

<pvxbig> [build prof=necro/e curses=11+1+1 earth=10 soul=9+1 blood=6][order of apostasy][mark of pain][barbs][blood ritual][ward against melee][ward against foes][glyph of lesser energy@0][resurrection signet][/build] </pvxbig>


  • Spear/Shield set of Fortitude and a +5 energy inscription.
  • 40%recharge/40%cast sets for curses and earth magic (switch to earth while casting wards, back to curses set for mark of pain and barbs.)
  • (Optional) and enchanting mod on anything (for an extra one second of OoA!)


  • Use Order of Apostasy whenever energy is available, make sure to use GoLE whenever you can to help with energy loss.
  • Place Barbs on the sins' targets, and Mark of Pain on balled up foes. Cover with Parasitic Bond if you have it. Make sure that Mark of Pain is covered with Barbs if you have no other cover hex. Barbs's recharge time is only 5 seconds, and it will be easy to re-apply. Mark of Pain however, has a longer recharge time, and should not be wasted.
  • Use your snare(s) accordingly (Grasping Earth and Ward Against Foes), to snare the other team's relic runner, or snare opposing melee forces that are pressuring your monks.
  • Place Ward Against Melee to relieve pressure from your monks.
  • Blood Ritual on your bonder for help keeping bonds up.

SoD/Smite Edit

<pvxbig> [build name="sod smite/bond" prof=monk/eleme protec=11+1+1 divine=11+1 smitin=8+1][shield of deflection][reversal of fortune][aura of stability][blessed signet][strength of honor][life bond][balthazars spirit][glyph of lesser energy@0][/build] </pvxbig>


  • Normal Monk weapon swaps.



RC/Prot Monk Edit

<pvxbig> [build name="rc prot" prof=monk/mes protec=12+1+1 divine=8+1 healin=8+1 inspiration=7][restore condition][gift of health][reversal of fortune][shield of absorption][spirit bond][aura of stability][holy veil][channeling][/build] </pvxbig>


  • Normal monk weapon swaps.


  • Usage is very straightforward:
    • Maintain Channeling at all times.
    • Restore Condition, Reversal of Fortune, and Gift of Health are your main heals.
    • Use Shield of Absorption on teammates taking a lot of damage. In most cases, it is best to use this on the bonder, to reduce all damage he/she takes to 0 for the duration of the spell.
    • Spirit Bond is your anti spike skill, use it on teammates with high amounts of dp, are being spiked, or on the ghostly/priest while capping, ressing, on the altar, etc.
    • Use Aegis on recharge, or Guardian on players taking alot of melee heat.
    • Holy Veil to remove hexes. Keep this on the relic runner at all times (except when removing to remove the hex).

Healer's Boon Monk Edit

<pvxbig> [build name="Healer's Boon" prof=monk/mes healin=12+1+1 divine=8+1 protec=8+1 inspiration=7][Healer's Boon][Infuse Health][Orison of Healing][dwayna's kiss][Healing Seed][cure hex][Heal Party][channeling][/build] </pvxbig>


  • Normal monk weapon swaps.
  • A 40/40 set for healing



Replace Dismiss Condition with Draw Condtions.

Special Usage Edit

  • The following are special instructions for maps that aren't Annhilation/Priest Annhilation

Capture Points Edit

  • On capture points maps the suggested split is:
    • Team One: "Watch Yourself!" Sin, Siphon Sin, Necro, and RC cap the farthest base.
    • Team Two: Disrupting Dagger Sin, Para, and LoD Monk cap the middle base (LoD Monk spams LoD to heal party members that need healing.)
    • Team Three: Sod Monk and the ghostly caps the closest base and holds it.

Relic Runs Edit

  • Usually you will have the sins run relics, but on maps where the opposing relic runner has to die either a monk or the necro will run the relics.
    • For snaring, the OoA Necro should use his Ward Against Foes and Grasping Earth to snare the opposing team's relic runner.
    • The sins then proceed to attack the relic runner, triggering Crippling Anthem's crippling effect.
    • Body block the opposing runner once snared.

King of the Hill Edit

  • Highest priority on these maps is killing the opposing ghostly hero, and most importantly, keeping yours alive.
    • Sins should have little problems killing the opposing ghostly hero, as long as OoA is up, and they're attacks aren't blocked (which won't happen unless enchants go down.) Make sure your necro doesn't kill himself from OoA, as he is a key player on these maps.
    • Keep a constant SoD + Aura of Stability on the ghostly, Ward Against Melee on the altar as much as possible, and sins pressure the other teams damage dealers.
    • If your para has Song of Concentration get it up before the ghostly caps. Song + Aura of Stability will make the ghostly impervious to an type of interruption besides blackout, or knockdowns if Aura of Stability is stripped.
    • Sin uses Disrupting Dagger to interrupt the opposing teams' ghostly's attempts at capping the altar.

Counters Edit

  • NR and Tranq are devastating to this build. They should be taken out immediately and at all costs.
  • Heavy pressure can be fatal if the enemy team isn't quickly taken out.
  • Frequent enchantment or hex removal can hinder the team, but not completely shut it down.
