  • This build is more fragile than the Dervish it is replacing.

  • Domination Wand of Memory with "Aptitude not Attitude", Domination Focus of Aptitude with "Forget me Not".

  • Mark of Pain Mark of Pain Micro this one.
  • Rejuvenation Rejuvenation Instead of Life.


  • Survivor Insignias
  • Vitae Runes
  • Either a 40/40 Restoration Magic set or defensive set. The hero will be holding PwK most of the time.

Orders Hero

The Player

  • This team build works regardless of your profession.
  • If you are a melee player, make sure you deal physical damage to take the most advantage of what this team build has to offer.
  • If you are a melee player, you can optionally take out a melee hero to free up space. Here's interesting builds to take for that space:
    • Illusion Mesmer, especially if you do not want your melee heroes to take anti-melee defense.
    • SoS Rit, for spirits and an extra source of Splinter Weapon. Can also resto if needed.
  • There are skills you can optionally use further strengthen this build:
    • Great Dwarf Weapon Great Dwarf Weapon Cast it on dervishes first for AoE KD. Careful for not over-riding Splinter Weapon.
    • Ebon Battle Standard of Honor Ebon Battle Standard of Honor Cast it at melee range.
    • Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support For more melee. Godly with AP caller builds.
    • Technobabble Technobabble or Fevered Dreams Fevered Dreams For massive interruption thanks to your melee heroes.
    • Splinter Weapon Splinter Weapon For another copy.
    • Double Dragon Double Dragon, Stone Sheath Stone Sheath, Gust Gust or Mirror of Ice Mirror of Ice, for more melee support with an elementalist.
    • Strength of Honor Strength of Honor, Smite Hex Smite Hex and Smite Condition Smite Condition if you do not bring the Orders Smiter with yourself.


  • For melee: Set the heroes to Fight Fight mode.
  • For others: Set the heroes to Guard Guard mode.
  • Effectively calling targets prevents melee heroes from wasting too much time walking around.
  • Striking foes after they ball up leads to an almost-guaranteed quick clean up.
