This build has been designed for the following use:

Team build initially meant for paragon players, who can provide his party with unremovable, party wide defense, but works just as wel with any backline player build. This frees up the hero slot that would otherwise be used for a second healer, which can now be used for an additional damage dealer. The Soul Twisting Ritualist provides protection through spirits, and the player provides shouts for further protection. The BiP keeps the team alive through healing. Additional defense is provided by the Blinding Surge elementalist. The 3 Energy Surge mesmers provide high armor-ignoring damage, and caster control through interupts. The remaining slots are used by the best options available: the Bone Fiend minion master and the Blinding Surge elementalist, as the team is meant for players without mercenaries.
Players that wish to play a damaging role, should use a team like Team - 7 Hero BiP Melee Support or Build:Team - 7 Hero Triple Energy Surge instead.
