Abandon hope all ye who enter here...

Channeling is for when you're being chased and have to spam yourself alive. If you can cope with just normal regen then it shouldn't be an issue.

It's handy in RA/TA when you're virtually always the first target and everyone's chasing you like a benny hill show.

Well.. that was fun :D We nearly held our own against a rank 350-odd guild, which was nice. Unsurprisingly, ReV owned us twice, but I feel we could get closer to their standard in not all that long a time.

Please note below the improvements we made in the course of the night, so I can update the build. I've already replaced all Remove Hexes with Holy Veil.

Also, what worked well for people? Klok, did you find "Victory is Mine!" useful?

One thing I'm thinking about is whether to change Elle to a second boon prot monk, but carrying a similar set of skills to what she has currently.. hmm.

What would I use to gain energy? If I had to use OoB I would lose restore condition :/ Plus I'd have to go capture it ;)

I don't mind trying out a boon build though.

Until we get better at GvG, I suggest swapping Malaise from the Virulent Necro for Death Nova. Serves nicely to persuade warriors to back off from someone they're focusing on.

I do believe the Energy Denial build was working well once I got the hang of it. However, it uses up so much energy and then the mesmers target you and don't let you regen :(. I'm sure using glyph of lesser energy on any occasion would keep the mesmer going. I didn't have Panic anyway, so I didn't do the build complete justice.

He replaced Panic with Energy Surge, and Glyph of Lesser Energy with Res Signet.
