Attributes and Skills

Template code

  • Vigorous Spirit Vigorous Spirit: For further pressure relief.
  • Signet of Rejuvenation Signet of Rejuvenation: For a second direct heal that serves as passive energy management.

Optional 2

  • Dolyak Signet Dolyak Signet: For a counter to hammer warriors, earth eles, assassin chains, and an armor buff.
  • Shield Bash Shield Bash: For interrupting and disabling melee attackers, useful for disabling Assassin chains and adrenaline for Warriors.
  • Protector's Defense Protector's Defense: For adjacent, irremovable block. Note that you cannot activate during a cast or knockdown due to it being a skill and not a stance.
  • Balanced Stance Balanced Stance: For a counter to hammer warriors, earth eles, assassin chains, and other sources of knockdown.


The Equipment Template for this build is:
  • A 40/40 Healing Prayers Set.
  • A high energy set (a wand and focus with two 15/-1 mods).
  • A Furious Spear of Defence (+5AL) with "Brawn over Brains" (-5 energy) inscription for hiding energy
  • Disciple's Insignias, with a Rune of Superior Vigor and 2 Runes of Vitae.
  • A Spear + Shield set with +5 energy and +5 Armor on the spear, along with a 10% chance to gain double adrenaline. You should have a variety of max Q7/Q8 Tactics shields, with all of the various +10 vs. damage (fire, lightning, piercing, slashing, etc.) mods.


  • Constantly auto-attack in your spear set (tab+spacebar) when not casting to build adrenaline for Bonetti's Defense.
  • Cast Healing Burst on targets that will allow you to get full heal. Spam it to counter pressure.
  • Use Signet of Rejuvenation for a backup heal and energy management.
  • Use Patient Spirit when Healing Burst and Signet of Rejuvenation are simply not enough, or when you want to avoid using Healing Burst as much as possible to avoid interrupts.
  • Use Bonetti's Defense to avoid physical damage and possibly serve as energy management. You can even use this to prevent Ranger interrupts. If it is charged and you don't seem to be needing it much to stop melee opponents, throw up a Bonetti's before casting Burst to help avoid a Distracting Shot from a Ranger.
  • Use Spotless Mind to keep your teammates clean of hexes. You do not need to cast this in your enchantment extending set unless you have weakness on you (it already lasts 15 seconds at 15 Healing, which is enough to remove exactly 3 hexes over time), use your 40/40 set and defensive set appropriately.
  • Use Cure Hex for hex removal and a strong heal.
  • Use Draw Condition to keep the party free of conditions, bring Mending Touch to remove these conditions if necessary.


  • Standard anti-Monk counters


  • Holy Veil Holy Veil over Cure Hex Cure Hex: if you find the pre-prot ability of Veil to be better than the healing of Cure Hex.
  • Divine Spirit Divine Spirit / Deny Hexes Deny Hexes over Cure Hex Cure Hex / Spotless Mind Spotless Mind: to provide a combination of energy management along with a double hex removal skill.
  • Mending Touch Mending Touch to remove condition stacks.
