So this monk runs to a shrine and camps? How does it survive against 3-4 humans? Something like this just makes more sense to me as a shrine nuker:
Ray of Judgment Glyph of Swiftness Reversal of Damage Smite Condition Smite Hex Storm Djinn's Haste Optional Optional
It is just something to recharge RoJ faster and a boost in run speed to get from shrine to shrine. Benjammn311Icon Benjammn311 23:03, 12 December 2008 (EST)
Eerie, but I'm just about to run that, except with Divine Boon (it's CM, if you run out of energy, then just kill yourself). --GoD Hammer and Sickle Guild of Deals 23:04, 12 December 2008 (EST)
Yea, thats an option.... I just like the extra heals tbh. ~~     Frvwfr2     talk    contribs    admin   23:11, 12 December 2008 (EST)
I just don't understand the focus of the build fully. Does this monk accompany a capping group? Does it stay with the capped shrine to battle other cappers/players by keeping up the NPCs? The latter is problematic, as you can't really solo an actual balanced party of 3-4 humans with some NPCs without serious monkage that this doesn't have or help from your teammates. And to counter PSpike, I suggest something slightly stupid, but actually goes along with the build I suggested above.

Imo, leave that slot blank, depending on what you're doing. Windborne is good in JQ, but in AB storm djinn's or something else would be used to greater effectiveness. With a changed attrib spread even fall back might work for AB. LifeAura of Faith 23:34, 12 December 2008 (EST)

I'd also say drop Vigorous Spirit for Castigation Signet. The extra energy and damage is much more useful than Vig is. LifeAura of Faith 15:44, 13 December 2008 (EST)

Patient-->Dwayna's=Spike Heal. It's pretty much all you need to maintain a shrine, and Castigation helps kill solo cappers and manage energy. LifeAura of Faith 15:53, 13 December 2008 (EST)
Castigation is a nice extra bit of damage too, or Glyph of Swiftness for capping a little faster (if you're running one of the air speed boosts, then you're at the two-spell breakpoint for the Glyph). I like both of them better then Vigorous, at the least. --GEO-logo Ĵĩôřũĵĩ Đēŗāķō.>.cнаt^ 19:22, 13 December 2008 (EST)

I must be missing something, but RoJ@16 deals 240 Holy damage and 8 seconds worth of Burning (112 damage), so 352 damage in total. Where do you get the extra 128 damage from? RoD and your Smites? =/ ــмıкεнaшк 20:03, 13 December 2008 (EST)

It still somehow kills them, though. And most anything left can be killed by spamming RoD on yourself and using Cast Sig. --GoD Hammer and Sickle Guild of Deals 20:04, 13 December 2008 (EST)

Add Arcane Echo as a variant, especially for FA. Lets you blow through gates and mines like... well, it cuts right through em. High energy cost, but it's worth it when you're low on time, etc. --Gah Doomspike 3 20:29, 13 December 2008 (EST)

Shrine Solos

How does this do it? RoJ does 48 damage at 16 smiting. That times 5 pulses = 240 damage. Burning does 14 damage/sec. The foes burn for 8 seconds. 240 + 8 * 14 = 352.

"Make Haste!" > Windborne Speed

Not sure why "Make Haste!" wasn't mentioned already, it's unstripable, lasts longer then Windborne, costs half as much, and has no cast time. Only downside is the "ends on attack" clause, which means nothing if you're buffing turtles/juggies.

After a couple solid days of using this build, I really can't see why anyone would want to use anything else in JQ, ever. Single-shot shrine capping, can stop other players from capping back, sits there and uses Reversal to kill dumb Warriors and Assassins, and heals everything else. The only downside is it can't kill other Monks, but then again, not much else seems to manage that anyway.

And on a only semi-related note, Judge's Intervention is a retarded random replacement for Vigorous Spirit. Killed a Warrior with it because he managed to get my health low enough for a spike, the end result was me sitting there at 50~ health and him eating 190 armor-ignoring damage. --GEO-logo Ĵĩôřũĵĩ Đēŗāķō.>.cнаt^ 10:14, 18 December 2008 (EST)

Lasts for nine seconds out of a ten-second recharge with a 4-point investment, while Windborne only lasys for seven seconds out of a five-second recharge. Windborne can be kept up constantly, technically, but if you factor in the energy cost, you'll probably run out of energy if you try it. (or you'll get ganked while you're empty on energy.) --GEO-logo Ĵĩôřũĵĩ Đēŗāķō.>.cнаt^ 14:15, 18 December 2008 (EST)

JQ

IMO this should be the standard for the JQ (and perhaps as well for AB, though I'm not too sure about that): <pvxbig> [build prof=mo/ass smit=12+1+3 heal=10+1 div=6+1 shad=6][Patient Spirit][Reversal of Damage][Ray of Judgment][Smite Condition][Cure Hex][Castigation Signet][Dash][Dark Escape][/build] </pvxbig> PS combined with Cure Hex provides you with great counter-pressure and carrier support, CS is proper e-management, especially when you're near archers, and you have a great IMS and anti-spike from Dash and Dark Escape. I don't think that a six point investment in Command is worth giving up the IMS. --Luuck 06:15, 4 January 2009 (EST)

Oh fuck yes. Brandnew. 07:23, 4 January 2009 (EST)
Dash -> faster movement -> more caps -> more jade slabs. IMHO it's better than the carrier support u get from 'MH!'... --Luuck 10:36, 4 January 2009 (EST)
JQ is about supporting the carriers. If anything, run Fall Back as a self speed boost. ~~     Frvwfr2     talk    contribs    admin   10:37, 4 January 2009 (EST)
I was prefer /A version tbh. If you're make hasting, you arent rly nuking =\ Rawrawr Dinosaur 21:35, 4 January 2009 (EST)
I kinda run whatever I feel like. Thats why I just made it optional.... ~~     Frvwfr2     talk    contribs    admin   21:46, 4 January 2009 (EST)
Just one more point for the Make Haste variant, Make Haste on an ally during the initial charge for the central shrine in JQ really can make a big difference (since whichever team doesn't get the cap normally is annihilated as they try to leave aggro range). --GEO-logo Ĵĩôřũĵĩ Đēŗāķō.>.cнаt^ 23:54, 4 January 2009 (EST)
As shown on the build page, Mo/P requires a 6 pt. investment in command, making 'FB!' a 6 sec speedboost for 10e and with a 25 sec recharge. Not really worth the 6 points IMO. It is quite more viable on the two vetted builds for ZB and WoH, but in this particular one, I'd choose Mo/A. Oh and btw, those other two builds are full support. What you're doing by giving this one 'MH!', is making it a player with and inconvenient hybrid function. --Luuck 02:42, 5 January 2009 (EST)

No one on earth should be using low spec healing prayers on a smiter, see this for the real bar. Also who the fuck would use this in AB, the reason it ownz JQ is cause 1 RoJ can wipe a whole shrine. FrostrageFrosty po! 11:42, 6 January 2009 (EST)

Smite Hex is pretty useless in JQ. As I stated above, PS and Cure Hex is great carrier support. Thats why you need healing prayers. --83.87.2.98 18:05, 7 January 2009 (EST)
@Frosty: Run multiples of this in AB, and you've got more then enough damage to clear a shrine, plus you've got multiple Monks, so you've got a shitload of survival. That's why you'd run it in AB. Basically works the same as having a Nuker and a Monk in one team, except you can split with these two and still retain some effectiveness (since they can both support other players and provide plenty of damage). Not as broken as it is in JQ, but still quite effective. --GEO-logo Ĵĩôřũĵĩ Đēŗāķō.>.cнаt^ 20:52, 7 January 2009 (EST)

You need fall back to run to the shrine before the other team--20pxRelyk_||_I hammers u! 04:34, 13 January 2009 (EST)

Your Divine favor is fine to keep at least one shrine NPC alive with Reversal of Damage and Smite Condi/Hex. With a Command subspec you have Make Haste to throw onto a carrier whenever you see one (such as after you've just solo capped a shrine) and you have Fall Back to give yourself and any others an IMS to get around the shrines quicker. You can also use it to bolster your healing on the carriers. You simply don't need healing to keep a carrier alive. If (for whatever reason) you need a healing bonus, Boon should be plenty and you won't need to sacrifice attribute points. If you're capping or baby sitting a carrier, Castig will be fine to keep your energy loss from Boon in check. - Panic sig5 05:07, 13 January 2009 (EST)

I forgot to point out I didnt say "Use boon instead of healing to heal turtles!" I said "If you're running 16 smite and RoJ and for some reason you find the need to powerheal carriers, use boon and keep your IMS shouts instead of speccing into healing and then either splitting your attribs 4 ways or dropping your IMS shouts." For AB or Aspenwood, you don't need MH! and FB! so you can happily spec into heals. - Panic sig5 05:13, 13 January 2009 (EST)
You wouldnt bring heals in ab--20pxRelyk_||_I hammers u! 05:16, 13 January 2009 (EST)
There's no reason you couldn't if you were playing in a semi-organized team. If you're going to run around solo-capping and relying on DF and smite for your self-survival, then there's better IMS choices than /P. - Panic sig5 05:20, 13 January 2009 (EST)
You use Arcane Echo to cap shrines quickly, but you only have IoH for an ims, therefore you either cap with your party or you run around capping without an ims, unless you want an elite combo of IoH+Smite Condition--20pxRelyk_||_I hammers u! 05:26, 13 January 2009 (EST)
That's why this is worse than an ele for solo capping in AB. Still, if you're in a team they should bring IMS shouts and you can happily run healing. Not sure what you'd need to take on your monk that wouldn't fit onto something else anyway... it's AB ffs. - Panic sig5 05:35, 13 January 2009 (EST)

Whats the point in running it

Its just a cookie cutter...i see no point in it . JQ/CM is way unbalanced and broken. Kurzick are allways winning like 9/10 times.. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 123.108.69.207 (contribs) 10:16, 27 April 2009.

A) Sign your comments with ~~~~. B) Go QQ somewhere else. Spaggage talk 16:21, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
IMO if Kurzicks are winning 9 times out of 10 you probably have too many leechers, are bad, or aren't watching team compositions, which generally are similar between matches due to reentry timing. If I am consistently getting teams of 4+ nukers, I run prot instead and protect shrines. On the minus side, Balthazar faction slows to a crawl if you aren't nuking. I went 9 for 12 in my last bunch of matches working on the zcoin PvP mission, started 0 for 2, and ended 5 for 5. The trick was noticing that most groups were 6-7 shrine nukers and switching to prot (I did experiment with a hexway mesmer in match 3, as well). --Falseprophet 19:14, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Actually every time i've played on luxon side i've looked at the bars that are being run and the players, here are a common occurrences: Warriors using flare + Defy Pain, Rangers using RoJ, Necros using daggers, mesmers using bow attacks, monks using meteor shower, and people pregame saying "doh, i forgot to take out res sig and my PvE skills." Funniest thing i've seen is a mesmer using volley and illusinary weapon. 2nd funniest is all the warriors using Signet of Stamina as they're dying of degen and then immediatly attacking. < (i have seen that hammen on 8 different accounts now.)--IkimonoNeeds more ParagonMonk-Paragon-icon 19:43, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Base Build

As with Palm Strike "pro" builds, RoJ builds need to just be whittled down to a base build(as is the case with VoR builds). Y/N and why. Flesh Atrophy

Probably not. Palm Strike is monstly a PvP build while RoJ can be split PvP-PvE where usually the splits are different per the area that they are tailored to. for example: HA - more of a team supportive role with RoJ used as a spike or whatnot; CM - more of a self survival; PvE Nuke the shit out of it and buff any melee with SoH.--Ikimono"My beard is thick."Monk-Paragon-icon 15:16, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
