Default SUPER SMITE / Sig-Monk Build!!

Here is my idea for a SUPER SMITE build. Also known as the Sig-Monk build.

This build is UNTESTED, and as far as I know, COMPLETELY NEW!

I got the idea when doing an infusion run several months ago and my whole group was almost wiped out by the azure shadows.

8 man team, 2 sets of monks, 4 of each type. To avoid confusion, these groups will be referred to as the "Keystone" and "Judgement" groups.
(I'm actually thinking only 2 Keystones and 6 Judgements would be better)

16 Smiting, the rest in Domination Inspiration and Illusion

The Keystone group.
Arcane Echo
Arcane Mimicry
Keystone Signet {E}
Mantra of Signets
Phantom Pain
Shatter Delusions
Bane Signet
Leech Signet

The Judgement Group
Arcane Echo
Arcane Mimicry
Signet of Judgement {E}
Mantra of Signets
Phantom Pain
Shatter Delusions
Bane Signet
Leech Signet

The idea os for these 2 groups to cast Arcane Echo, Arcane Mimicry, and the 2nd (AE) Mimicry so that they all have the following skillbar:
Signet of Judgement {E}
Signet of Judgement {E}
Keystone Signet {E}
Mantra of Signets
Phantom Pain
Shatter Delusions
Bane Signet
Leech Signet

Each person picks 1 target and fires off:
SoJ
SoJ
Mantra
Keystone
SoJ
SoJ
Keystone
SoJ
SoJ
Phantom
Shatter

Bane to finish off stragglers, if there are any. At 16 smite, SoJ does 79 damage, Bane Signet does 58.
Assuming that Domination is, say 9, that's 51 damage + Deep wound.

If all goes well, each target will be knocked down for the entire spike, suffer (6*79+58+51)=583 + Deep Wound

This is enough to take down a foe with (583/.8) = 729 Health. (this takes into consideration the Deep Wound)

Important to note that SoJ is an Area-Effect Skill, which means that if your enemie is clumped together, they will die much, much faster.

I've been weary of releasing this build because I thought the PvP players in my guild were interested in using it, but the interest seems to have been lost (we're mostly PvE anyway), so I wanted to share it with the Guild Wars Guru community.

Questions, Comments, and Criticisms welcome!

Was thinking more along the lines of Quickening Zephyr and Mantra of Inscriptions @ 40% to cut down recharge time on Signet of Judgement to 9 seconds. The recharge of an un-buffed Signet of Judgement's an awfully long wait, and Arcane Mimicry even moreso.

Edit: And yes, I'm aware of the signet rechargers.

Fun Fact- Arcane Mimicry copies ANY elite on the target's skill bar. If the target has already used Arcane Mimicry to copy a different skill, it might not be the one you want.

That is, the SoJ monks could copy Keystone Signet, and then the Keystone Signet monks could get a second copy of Keystone Signet by chance.

Found this out while playing with Incendiary Arrows + Practiced Stance.

Obviously you must know very much. Signet of Judgement spike groups are dead. It was a gimmick. And then it died.

I don't pvp because it's boring (to me)

I had an idea and posted it, but thanks for your constructive spam.

I have an all monk build that I am particularly proud of, I wont go into details here but it is and Anti-Iway SoJ spike. It's very effective, its just slightly more difficult to execute. But ya SoJ spike is dead/unpopular good luck ever finding enough monks to test it out with.

One thing I would like to point out is that your build has very little/no defence, even if it worked out how you plan. im guessing it would fail from the lack of healing and protection, I have yet to see a team (other than iway) that has absolutly no condition removeal.

If you guys get married I totally want in on some sweet threesome action, not because I like the build, just because of the odd proposition.

I like it because targeting would be pretty hard for about a minute or two for them. Its sort of like the all me/e nuke group just with monks.

If you can't get the first skill of, I would say you were doomed. If you DO get Signet of Judgement off before the other team acts, I think you have a good chance of winning. Anyone tested this yet? It'll be cool to see the results.
