Attributes and Skills

<pvxbig> [build prof=E/any earth=12+1+1 energy=12+1][Ebon Hawk][Stoning][Ash Blast][optional][Aura of Restoration][Earth Attunement][Optional][Resurrection Signet][/build] Elite Skill:

  • Elemental Attunement [[Elemental Attunement@13] - Dual Attunement or as a replacement to Earth Attunement.
  • Ether Prism [[Ether Prism@13] - Energy gain and anti-spike.
  • Unsteady Ground [[Unsteady Ground@14] - Knock down melee some more.
  • &quot;You&#039;re All Alone!&quot; [["You're All Alone!"] - Synergises perfectly with Stoning; covers Weakness with Cripple, harder to avoid the projectiles.
  • "Empathic Removal" [["Empathic Removal"] - Hex and condition removal from your teammates, significantly lightens pressure on monks in RA.
  • Many other elites will work, as this build doesn't need it's elite to perform its primary role.

Non-elite Variants:

  • Kinetic Armor [[Kinetic Armor@14] - What squishy?
  • Glowstone [[Glowstone@14] - Extra energy to use a more useful elite skill.
  • Aftershock [[Aftershock@14] - Synergy with KDs.
  • Shield Bash [[Shield Bash@0] - Stop melee in its tracks.
  • Return [[Return@3] - Leave melee in the dust.
  • Rip Enchantment [[Rip Enchantment@3] - Remove prots, freshly cast attunements, or other important enchantments.
  • Cry of Frustration [[Cry of Frustration@3] - Interrupt anything.
  • Augury of Death [[Augury of Death@3] - Get more kills with two birds and one stone.
  • Balanced Stance [[Balanced Stance@8] - Anti-KD.
  • Wild Throw [[Wild Throw@3] - Get rid of Balanced Stance.
  • Enfeeble [[Enfeeble@3] - faster and cheaper weakness, but less damage



  • Full Blessed insignias.
  • Rune of Superior Vigor.
  • 40/40 Earth Magic set.
  • 40/20/20 Earth staff.
  • Standard defensive sets, preferably with a Heavy spear/sword/axe.


  • Cast Earth Attunement and Aura of Restoration just before combat.
  • Spam Ebon Hawk, followed by Stoning for knock-downs.
  • On physicals, use Ash Blast while they're down for blindness.
  • Because of the fast recharge, you can keep blindness and weakness on multiple targets, such as warriors, assassins and rangers, while still having time to harass monks.


  • General anti-caster.
  • Massive enchantment stripping.
  • Anti-KD.
  • Dodging. Get close enough.
