Tactics

Playing this team

Game Plan

Ideally suited for Isle of the Dead, but also adequate for other narrow maps which don't support savage splitting. DP the opposing backline in 8v8 situations until their entire team breaks down.
8v8

  • Spread hexes.
  • Cover Soul Bind, remove Spirit Bond (PvP) from Healing Burst monks.
  • Perform pressure spikes lead by your Lightning Surge elementalist.

Flag

  • Hold the flag.
  • Run on your flag runner if necessary.

Split

  • Defend with the lightning surge elementalist.

Lategame

  • Defend with Lingering Curse, Soul Bind and your runner. Send the prot where needed.
  • Send the mesmer to their solo monk so you can overwhelm him with Backfire.

Playing against this team

8v8 Situations

  • Take out Soul Bind.
  • Tell your monks where the spikes are incoming.
  • If the team doesn't replace its ritualist with a monk runner, camp him with interrupts (ideally a ranger) so he becomes a burden to his team and can't run flags.

Flag

  • You can flag push, but your monks have to push up as you'll get linebacked from the elementalist.

Split

  • If you split, be prepared to face the lightning surge elementalist.

Lategame

  • Avoid facing the mesmer with a solo monk.
  • Lineback the lightning surge elementalist.
