Obviously not a bad idea, but I would concentrate on either prot rather than healing. Since you have Seed on the bar, you'd already be a hybrid healer and healing skills don't need to be recharged as much as prot would be. KJ badge sig 17:10, 9 July 2009

Needs moar divine boon. LifeWikiLOD7 00:21, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
i could only really fit divine boon in if i dropped kiss+patspirit and took boon + rof and that means more energy intensive and less spam of protspirit. And thats much more fragile if you bork AP or get Selfless removed, and end up been a Boon'd Rof spammer as your burning thru energy way faster. Kiss + patspirit is much more stable in that situation. but i will consider that, and appreciate the feedback >>Jayson<<< 00:55, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Thats pretty much the the heavier prot version i run when the other monk is heavier on heals(eg decides to run Hb). tho i still find it a little more fragile if you fail your ap. (selfless for divine and ps for deny hex)>>Jayson<<< 01:22, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
I actually kind of like divine because it means you can actually heal yourself. That bar(or a variation there of), is basically the only pure prot bar you should ever run in pve. Even then, it should stay in general pve. LifeWikiLOD7 02:30, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Aegis is perfectly FINE with selfless. If your stupid enough to cast selfless THEN aegis you deserve to have selfless drop, you obviously cast aegis then selfless(as stated on the usage section :/) Only really discussing Divine spirit for WHEN/IF you need to target you self for other prots or heals.(example 6 man area with only yourself monking)otherwise the double duration and half cost make selfless a better option, imo, after testing both. >>Jayson<<< 23:05, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

The att spread is fine on the boon/prot version, and you could even drop the deadly spec if you wanted. GoR won't recharge the 3 skills that need it effectively. I've run the version Racthoh posted in the past, and it is probably the best general pve prot build.-- 19:23, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Hence the posting here and WANTING merciless fucking over of the original idea! i appreciated the WHOLE page of feedback :P even from the people to worried to sigh their comments! And the overall consensus is? The boon prot version is on the whole better? and a much better prot bar than a heal hybrid? Yeah fair enough! ill take that like a man :D..Tho i did say i run the prot heavy version and that others has used boonprot+ap in the past!(especially well know players!) so i wanted to see what everyone thogught of the heal hybrid!!, and i did say but its slightly more fragile if you fuck up!! i wanted so see the general thoughts on this :D will i bitch you all shot the idea down? jesus no :P happy people are taking the time to look and give DECENT comments :D Bars will be updated at some point when i can be bothered :D >>Jayson<<< 00:41, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Boon Prot Version

Page respecced to boon prot version!...and happily on my part ill add :D More feed back please!.. and Sidenote: boon prots always relied on energy management for their elite, AP does this + gives recharges to some basic skills for MUCH increased efficiency and insta recharges!

  • additional* should the page be renamed? Pls keep up the feedback :D its ALL appreciated! >>Jayson<<< 00:58, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Looks good. However, i'd still favor a slightly higher spec into deadly. 8, maybe 9 is probably best. LifeWikiLOD7 01:51, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Agreed and fixed >>Jayson<<< 01:59, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

k? its called chain it with the other monk in your crew and pack an elite that is actually useful to your team.

i second that. get this build off pvx. its bad. "::k? its called chain it with the other monk in your crew and pack an elite that is actually useful to your team.

solution: use ER eles || use life sheath. mistime AP once and you're a useless spot on the party window Rikk Panda 02:55, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Add Blessed aura. ~~

a few questions

theres something i dont understand about this build. i know how you can cast AP and if everything goes according to plan, you can chain aegis .

but what i don't understand is when do i use divine boon ? do i cast it on my heroes and maintain it or do i only cast it whenever i want to use rof ? o.o

also, would it be better to get you move like a dwarf ? cause if you're planning to kill enemies fast so you get more energy from ap, wouldn't YMLAD! help your heroes (most likely discordway since you're running AP) ? --Lusciious 09:47, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

YMLaD is a funny idea, just maintain Boon to make things simple. ---Chaos- (moo) -- 10:22, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
1. You can only maintain Boon on yourself, not on any others. 2. There's little point in running this with discordway. Both the 3-hero and 6-hero versions have enough heals. 3. I agree with Chaos. YMLaD is poor use of the slot in this build.--Supernick530 10:26, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
alrighty . :) thanks for the help . well i'm sure a little more heal won't hurt. what should i run with this then ? 2 discord spammers ( no heals ) + a discord hybrid (2-3 heals + attacks) o.o--Lusciious 11:40, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
Just run it with Discord or something, it doesn't really matter that much. ---Chaos- (moo) -- 11:41, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

is this build very good ?

is this build that good ? like someone mentioned in his rating that you need 3 monks or a paragon to keep up with this guy . is that true ? --Lusciious 23:40, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

Um, no. This is more of a general PvE build. You shouldn't be running this in elite areas, but if you're running it in vanquishes or just normal PvE, then you can probably just add a healer and be fine. Karate KJ for sig Jesus 01:17, 10 January 2010
What Karate Jesus said, Deffo a mission/Vanq bar, NOT designed for speed clears of elite areas, more for "balanced" or "general" teams. And its the prot part of the backline, you really only should be takin at most a healer/woh hybrid with you. Any more is a total waste, especially if you have midline defense like imbagon or enfeebling blood or gdw powered knockdowns from your frontline. Needing 3 monks + para is laughable. >>Jayson<<< 01:31, January 10, 2010 (UTC)
alright. thanks for your opinions :D--Lusciious 03:30, January 10, 2010 (UTC)


So, believe it or not, heroes aren't bad with this build. I was messing with AI today and came across this note on GWW, "Heroes will only use Assassin's Promise on low health targets, even if it is vital to their attack chain." I thought that sounded perfect on a AP boon-prot so I tested it out. I tested it in two ways and monitored the heroes work.

  • Boon-prot hero with no other healer/protector in the party. Vanquishing Perdition Rock. Hero not micro'd and no calling of targets. No e-management besides AP.
    • Hero misses with AP about 4 times. Hero runs out of energy 2 times. Hero uses AP for e-management.
  • Same as above, except targets are called.
    • Hero lands AP every time except once. Hero runs out of energy once.

Don't know if it's worth adding the tag or not, especially seeing as it'd need another e-management skill to be perfect, but it looks like heroes cast the skill when a target is at or below 25% health. Karate KJ for sig Jesus 17:59, 5 April 2010

I think that's about as good as heroes will use skills :> Probably hero viable. --Chaos? -- 08:56, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
Did you run it with Divine Spirit? I wouldn't think that Heroes use it until they hit ~10 Energy or try to maintain it even if it recharges. AP isn't worth it if all it recharges is Aegis; you'll probably get more reliable E-management with the Mo/Me version. Also, ratings for the Hero build (if anyone does rate with it in mind) will be lower. ــѕт.мıкε 21:22, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
I tried out Divine Spirit with the build later, and it doesn't look like heroes use it well. I'll try again when I get back into town and see what happens. It would be worthwhile if heroes use it. The Mo/Me build (with edrain) is definitely better. Karate KJ for sig Jesus 21:34, 6 April 2010
id say thats about right ^ No seed, lack of pre prot awarenes and crap spirit usage rears its ugly head for a hero. >>Jayson<<< 22:11, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
Yea, I can tell you that this is not a hero effective build. Heros aren't good with prots to begin with, and the only thing a hero would benefit from is Aegis. Let the heros use their godly interrupt abilities for e-management.--Ikimono Sent his resume to ArenaNetMonk-Paragon-icon 22:15, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
