Shield Bash

It's not better. Shield Bash is great for countering sin chains, but Shield Stance makes you unkillable by any melee. The movement restriction is nothing in TA, you never have to push for an overextended warrior since there's nowhere to extend to. They both have their strong points. —SkaKidSkakidasaur.gif 16:16, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

Shield Bash disables Shattering Assault Sins (and melee's chains), but other than that, they're pretty much even. ــмıкεнaшк 18:09, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
TBH, sins aren't too plentiful in TA anymore since I've been playing (more as of recently). RaO Axers and standard Warriors are all the rage. Shield Bash is a wrench in their gears, but I perfer tons of block instead. --GoD Wario Sig.PNG*Wah Wah Wah!* 18:59, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
You can't gain adrenaline if you can't hit. Blocking hurts Warriors and Paragons more than anyone else, tbh. ــмıкεнaшк 19:04, 31 July 2008 (EDT)


Didn't Napalm put up a Mo/W dualstanced WoH that was pretty much the same as this that was unfavoured? So i herd apparently dualstance monking is baed. —[Col.]TalkN.F 09:31, 29 September 2008 (EDT)

Discuss. --FrostyMini england.jpg 07:42, 19 October 2008 (EDT)

Merging with the shield bash monk makes perfect sense; they are practically the same, except one has bash and the other has shield stance. The rest of the differences are easy variants. 17:12, 5 November 2008 (EST)

I generalized the bar for both things and took away the merge with the Shadow Arts variant. The bars are rather different at that point. --GoD Hammer and Sickle.jpg Guild of Deals 17:44, 5 November 2008 (EST) I agreeRelic 16:26, 19 November 2008 (EST) Retrieved from ""

I agree. I also added the AB tag to this build. Reason: the Shield Bash article had it, and this build article now contains that build as a variant.--War_Pig5 08:35, 7 January 2009 (EST) definitely merge. 01:30, 28 January 2009 (EST)


Mark of Insecurity has made this build a joke and hundred blades hits right through blocks. Both are meta -- not to mention whirling axe(since it sucks). (Timcago 17:14, 20 December 2008 (EST)).

l2pre-veil, l2kite. --Frosty 17:14, 20 December 2008 (EST)
True, but don't you think a 1 stance monk is better after the december 12 updates?
You bring either Dual Stance or Disciplined/Shield Bash. Both work fine (Shield Bash possibly a little more with Mark of Fucked and Palm Strike). This still works fine as long as you're smart enough. --GoD Hammer and Sickle.jpg Guild of Deals 08:16, 28 January 2009 (EST)
3 of 8 skills entirely dedicated to blockable damage in RA = fail in current meta with plenty of AoE hexes. One VoR mesmer or lingering necro means certain death to a then-helpless monk, because they circumvent pre-veiling. VS + CoP (or similar) ftw. -- 08:05, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
It's really more of the TA bar version because we don't care about RA. - Misery Cow.pngMisery Says Moo 08:07, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
No it still rolls RA, you'd be lucky to have a lingering necro and vor mesmer on you at same time, but that means they would be halfway decent, which means your team is going to lose anyways attacking through insidious and empathy--Relyk 08:10, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
It does still roll RA, but it's not the exact bar I would take there. That being said I wouldn't take this bar exactly in TA too, I would be dropping Dismiss for Vigorous because condition removal would be elsewhere in the team. I discussed this at some point but someone was like blah blah blah you won't always have a necro or a smite monk. - Misery Cow.pngMisery Says Moo 08:13, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

I prefer running Shield Bash with Disciplined or Disciplined with Shield Stance. Depends on if I feel the need to piss off melee with 7 seconds of 75% block chance. I never saw why people liked Bonetti's. It takes a while to charge up. Shino sig.png15:48, 23 March 2009

urite, shield stance in ta is bad!--Relyk 04:48, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Shield stance still allows you to kite, and it's mainly for knockdowns anyway. Protector's defense means you are pretty much stuck in one spot for 9 seconds, and that's dumb. So basically people just ignore for 10 seconds, then they have 20 seconds all to themselves to kill you.Lightningbolt sig.jpguɐɟɐʞıd o^_^o¸«` 05:50, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
that's why you take shield stance and protector's defense imo. allows you to catch up on healing, plenty of blocking, recharges are almost never a problem. In fact, when i run it in RA, where ppl always just go straight for monk, i run disciplined, shield, and protectors, and spec 9 in tactics. and i drop guardian, no need. its as short as stances with a terrible cast. enchnt strips are meta. my bar in RA is WoH, Patient, Mend Condition (for the recharge and i have 3+1 specced in prot), cure hex, holy veil, disciplined, shield, protectors. i can almost maintain block stances. patient and WoH is more than enough healing. the quick recharge on mend cond means conditions arent a problem, unless they're on you, but conditions alone cant kill you, and no melee makes it tough. Daze is the worst condition monks face, but its not as if a monk with daze can use the 5/4s cast of dismiss to remove it anyway, just stance and cast, or wait. dual 12s recharge hex removal, both target other and one with precast takes care of hexes. i like it One Who Brings Soot 00:58, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't like it. Prots are huge in RA/TA, and not running Guardian is just unsmart. Sure, you can use three skills to semi-maintain 75% block, or use can use one for a perma-50% block, and have two slots open for more prots or simply self-defense. Cause not everyone in RA is stupid enough to keep on a monk who's chaining stances, and they'll just switch targets so you're stuck trying to heal through everything with Patient and Word. GG's. --Jaigoda 02:30, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Vig Spirit

I think it sucks balls, for RA at least. Heal over time is bad because often it's just going to overheal, and most of the time you'll want the big heal from Patient/Word anyway. Yeah, it's freaking awesome on paper, but to me it just saps your energy for less bang for your buck than your other heals. Maybe I just suck, but something like Sig Rejuv, SoA, or SB looks much more attractive to me. Also, no one runs dual stance nemoar. --Jaigoda 04:11, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

I easily outheal LC with vig spirit and single hex removal(WoH). What makes you think it is bad?Lightningbolt sig.jpguɐɟɐʞıd o^_^o¸«` 04:14, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Because to me, it just doesn't have anough use to fit in an EXTREMELY cramped monk bar. Yeah, maybe it can handle LC or poison, but so can Sig Rejuv/Word/Patient for relatively similar energy, and they're actually useful outside of minor pressure. Again, I might just suck too hard to use it properly, but... --Jaigoda 04:28, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Guardian Word of Healing Patient Spirit Vigorous Spirit Dismiss Condition Holy Veil optional Shield Stance
Vigorous Spirit heals an average of 150-200 at the least for a warrior; what 5 energy spell allows you to maintain itself on multiple members and eliminate so much pressure? Also, I don't think my bar is very cramped.Lightningbolt sig.jpguɐɟɐʞıd o^_^o¸«` 04:33, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Vig Spirit heals for an average of 150-200, but only on melee professions which save for 'Sins are pretty rarely targetted. So yeah, you might heal for that, but half will probably be overheal, and often you'll still need a Word/Patient. And I can heal for 142 with a no-cost skill that recharges every 8 seconds. I still don't see the benefits right now.. --Jaigoda 04:39, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

you /hax and use withdraw with 5/.75/0 Zyke-Sig.png 04:44, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Vig Spirit isn't a "direct" heal. It deals with degen, so dismiss is pretty much only used deep wound/blind/daze. It basically removes all pressure from the game, be it poison, bleeding, burning, LC, hexes, bla bla bla. If you have to constantly patient+woh vs 6+ degen on your entire party, your energy is going run out very fast. Vigorous Spirit does that job for you at a cheap cost.Lightningbolt sig.jpguɐɟɐʞıd o^_^o¸«` 04:46, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
20 energy every 30 seconds to keep it on each player (or 10 every 30 for 2 players) is 1-2 pips of energy right there. In the same 30 seconds, I could get off three FREE sigs and say, three Words/Patients, for plenty of anti-pressure. I could use the same argument for how Healing Breeze is bad: It overheals without your control, and won't heal when you really need it. Also, Sig Rejuv is still useful outside of degen pressure, while Vig Spirit has a pretty one-dimensional usage. Plus, if your RA team is balling up when there's an LC necro on the other team, you might as well just resign whether or not you have VS. --Jaigoda 04:52, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Enchanting spear* 20 every 36. LifeWikiLOD7.gif 04:55, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
My bad, sorry. Even so, to me it's just another (still quite expensive) heal, where you could otherwise be bringing something more useful and/or powerful. --Jaigoda 05:02, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, maybe I'll just admit that it comes down to personal preference, because in my eyes VS is inferior, and in others' it's apparently one of the better skills in the game. Whatever. I'm going to add Signet of Rejuvenation to variants, though. --Jaigoda 05:25, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Vigorous Spirit is the best arena hex removal in the game. If you don't understand why, you are playing badly. You sure as hell don't have to maintain it on everyone at all times, but precasting it on every before the battle delays the pressure setting in. Misery Cow.pngMisery Says Moo 06:46, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

I've never felt that Vigorous Spirit was ever better than a free heal. If you know who to heal at what time - depending on the amount of damage coming in over a certain period of time - you can learn to use WoH + Patient Spirit to greater effect. Pre-Veiling and Pre-Protting should take care of any large amounts of hexes and damage. I'm not sure about any of you, but I'd rather Pre-veil in anticipation of Lingering Curse and remove it than rely on Vigorous Spirit. 17:49, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Misery does have a point, tbh, but it's more suited for TA, where you have other people who know how to help mitigate damage (which means damage is coming in slower and VS is able to keep up). I've tried using Vig Spirit, but the nature of RA just prevents it from being useful. Most people don't bring much, if any defense, and VS just doesn't heal quickly enough in the damage-rampant RA of now, and you end up needing at least one more heal or prot. For me, I'd still take Shield of Absoption or Sig Rejuv any day (though TA is a very different story). --Jaigoda 21:27, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Don't use it in RA, main bar is for TA where Dismiss is shit. Misery Cow.pngMisery Says Moo 21:53, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

The new derv buffs are pretty OP, especially Conviction and Vow of Piety, but how well are they gonna work on a monk with Whirling Axe out there?

Dear x, you're very bad. Good monks will drop guardian for shielding hands and take either vig + bonettis or dolyak + bonetti's. Dolyak + shielding hands means you can just sit and tank damage, and you have bonetti's to fuel any powerhealing that manages to leak through (hardly any should though, with +10 from dolyak, a q8 shield, and shielding hands).

Dear bad players. A monk isn't suppose to be in the front line to begin with. Furthermore when a monk is /W then it is assumed they have some anti melee. Bonetti's or Wayward is good enough. Limiting a monks movement is absolute garbage. On a War sure but a monk NEEDS to be moblie unless you have a good team that dosen't split (but that NEVER happens). So I am not a shitter and you are bad. BTW popular = bad----X 19:02, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
Look at the tags. AB/CM/RA. There is no such thing as a "frontline" in any of those arenas. And I'd rather lose movement for a few seconds and avoid a knocklock than run and then get knocklocked. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 19:17, 4 December 2009
dolyak is great actually X. sitting there with vigorous and dolyak, you can just spear and vig will heal you for a shitload, doesn't matter that you aren't blocking because you have a godfuck of armor. and its just against KD's, where you would normally just guardian and kite, you can now just dolyak and keep wanding and casting, then vs daggers/axes just use bonettis. Gringo 19:20, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
I am not debating the skill but how it is used on a a war comes up and starts to KD lock. So you use Dolyak. He laughs and runs to gang up on a team mate.

Also, stop being bad, you aren't a good PvPer to begin with, so don't dispense advice that makes you look worse, especially when more experienced monks have told you that you are wrong.Lightningbolt sig.jpguɐɟɐʞıd o^_^o¸«` 20:10, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
Sorry I am not the pro that you are pika but how often do you see players stay around the monk...hardly ever. Don't give me this "you are bad", for you have never seen me play and never will. My advice is fine...don't like it....don't use it. Oh and you don't know my experience either so use Dolyak and fail.----X 20:14, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
From what I hear, Pika is a pretty pro monk. Karate KJ for sig.png Jesus 20:18, 4 December 2009
Don't give me your bullshit, your argument only applies for AB/CM where you actually need the mobility. For arenas, your team should never have to go to the other side of the map unless the other team is attempting to grief, which by then you don't need to heal. Nobody effing splits in RA, you should be right smack in the center of all your teammates 101% of the time, and if you have teammates who overextends for no particular reason, please tell them to stop being bad and learn how to switch targets, or /ragequit and find a better team. @KJ I am not a fantastic monk, I just know and apply the concept of "common sense", something which xtreme1ne has never come across in his entire lifetime, considering how stupid he was with his "new and revolutionary invincible monk" and the fact he never learnt from it.Lightningbolt sig.jpguɐɟɐʞıd o^_^o¸«` 20:21, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

The point that X's argument completely stopped being valid:

"Dear bad players. A monk isn't suppose to be in the front line to begin with. Furthermore when a monk is /W then it is assumed they have some anti melee. Bonetti's or Wayward is good enough. Limiting a monks movement is absolute garbage. On a War sure but a monk NEEDS to be moblie unless you have a good team that dosen't split (but that NEVER happens)."

Why discussion persisted beyond this point is completely beyond me. Someone should have just called him an autistic nigger and locked the page. ··· Danny Pew Pew 21:27, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

X, you've had an admin, a bm, one of the better tombsers who still plays, a solid monk, and danny le pro tell you you're wrong/bad/autistic. Look up dunning-kruger kk?--TahiriVeila 21:34, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

I run a Mo/Me with Channeling and Physical Resistance in RA because I am just that good. :> ··· Danny Pew Pew 21:35, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

I use Doylak sig in arenas and its very good actually. I prefer it to balanced stance since its unremovable. If you hate the decreased movement that much then go with balanced stance Muffin.jpgPWNAGEMUFFIN crabs 21:46, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
