this pwns all. this is the best doa build i have used. eva. period.mizzouman 20:31, 16 August 2007 (CEST)

i say put this into testing. its amazing.mizzouman 20:35, 16 August 2007 (CEST)

I was in one of the first groups that tested this in Gloom, went MUCH faster than with eles. Goldenstar 20:35, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

Just checkin in

Hey, everyone. Just figured I'd leave a comment. I'm the poster of the build, and have been checking in. It seems the build's only been vetted by me and 1 other person, mizzou. I just moved the build to Testing; so please, everyone, try out this team build and rate it. I promise you won't regret it. Joo 08:27, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

Ancestor's Rage nukes got nerfed ;d It's enchantment now. — Abedeus User Abedeus Sig 10:07, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

Just time the casting, how hard can it be? - (snō hwīt tăn) [sic] [găl'ə-rē] 12:12, 17 August 2007 (CEST)
Due to the quickness of the spikes, rage only needs to be used once (or occasionally twice) per group. That leaves the rits with the same amount of exhaustion as eles would have, easily recovered between fights. Joo 20:14, 17 August 2007 (CEST)


With 2 monks bringing seed of life i think the whole HB monk is kind of overrated. I have done DoA before (on hard mode) while bringing only 2 monks. The only skill you kind of need from the HB bar is Dwayna's Kiss and that one only has to be used in stygian veil. Can better add another damage dealer with some spec in healing and let that one bring Dwayna's Kiss. - 15:52, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

I have thought of this several times, but the problem is the HB is still needed. Seed of Life isn't always enough to keep the eles and SS (or in this case, the rits) alive if they're getting pounded by enemy casters and/or leaks. The HB is there for that backup, and you need 2 monks running seed anyway. If you only had a bonder and SB, the bonder would have to seed. And quite frankly, a bonder that's maintaining 11 bonds won't have the energy for that. Joo 20:13, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

Creator/Editor's Notes

Just fixed 2 attribute point mistakes on the SB monk build and realized that 5 attribute points were left unused on the Visage Channeler so I put them in Restoration Magic. Also, edited the equipment for the Rits adding in that a minor Restoration rune is optimal. Joo 20:34, 17 August 2007 (CEST)


I'm not saying I'm against this build at all, I'm all for it... But as a rit that has tried nuking in DoA I think you might need to add Essence Strike onto some of the rits, since you really can't rely on a BiP for your energy (Frequent dying... BiP forgetting to BiP... Etc).Stryk the Lightning 23:31, 17 August 2007 (CEST)

As a BiP, if your BiP is forgetting to BiP, then he sucks, plain and simple. -Kaelor 04:52, 18 August 2007 (CEST)
once EoTN comes out bips will be put into godmode with masochism — Skakid9090 04:55, 18 August 2007 (CEST)

Rit's New Use For DoA

Finally, my rit can go to DoA! I can't wait to try this out with my guild! -Aeris

Same here, but I'm just kind of interested about the fact that the only heals are seed, kiss, ethreal light, and mend body and soul. I've never really been there, so I'm assuming that seed is just enough to heal the team enough? Math Person 16:44, 5 March 2008 (EST)
Kiss heals for about 700 or 800 on the tank healing was never a problem, godamn ursan, i hate it so much, you can be the biggest noob ever and still farm anything, a-net save us from this ursanway!!! bring back the old farming builds that took talent!ExtremeSigPic Extreme(contribs) 16:59, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

Seed of Life?

Still doable with nerf to Seed of Life? Dragnmn talk 18:30, 4 September 2007 (CEST)

Bump Dragnmn talk 12:08, 9 September 2007 (CEST)
I'm curious about this too. Does this team build still work after the Seed of Life nerf, either by continuing to use Seed of Life or switching it for another skill? --SeditiousBroom 20:53, 11 September 2007 (CEST)
It worked before seed of life came out so it works after the nerf. --Swift Thief 01:27, 14 September 2007 (CEST)

Both Monks LB

Why do both Monks need Life bond?? They are both bonding the same person so yeah. User:Experienced

It's energy management. The monks will have Balthazar's Spirit on them, healing them whenever the tank takes damage. (by the way, you can sign your comments with four tildes: ~~~~.) Dragnmn talk 10:11, 15 September 2007 (CEST)

needs update wrt pet corpse nerf

See Build talk:Team - DoA HM Searing Flames#Archived for details. You probably can swap an Attuned Was Songkai with Flesh Golem and verify it's still viable. Sick energy management in this build anyway. Also, the BiP can go with low hp (>10) in Foundry, keep blood renewal up and be way more mobile. Goram 10:00, 19 January 2008 (EST)


Change the tank to a peramform terra, drop the bonder, update the monks and add another rit and this'll be the fastest way to farm DoA/Fow/UW--GoldenGoldenstarStar 21:31, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

Could this or some variant(s) of it... <pvxbig>

[build prof=mesme/rit fast=12+1+1 channel=12][arcane echo][echo][cry of pain][ether nightmare][spirit rift][ancestor's rage][optional][optional][/build] </pvxbig> in place of one or more of the rit spikers? CoP is an awful lot of AoE armor-ignoring damage. --Aubee91 15:38, 11 August 2008 (EDT)

CoP takes too long to recharge compared to Rift and Rage. Not worth the change. Also, the spikability of Rift+Rage is what makes this work so well. Joo 13:37, 17 September 2008 (EDT)

This looks pretty fun to play

I would so run this build in DoA if people were actually skilled enough. But I'm sure that Ursan has made people lazy and just plain bad at running anything that requires using more than three buttons. Shinomori 17:59, 17 October 2008 (EDT)

Needs update after ARage nerf months ago. Dragnmn talk cont 05:44, 18 October 2008 (EDT)

Destructive Was Glaive

Vs Attuned Was Songkai. Contributes to the damage more because of the spammability of the skills, although energy might be an issue. Bringing Essence Strike or a para would remedy that though. -- Jebuscontests 19:21, 22 November 2008 (EST)

Can this still be used?

I've got a rit, who has a hard time finding a party for DoA. I know it says it's outdated, but can it still be used? or? - MeTx june 16th 2009
