55hp monks are pretty awesome,


Right up to the moment someone slaps Conjure Nightmare on you and kills you dead in under three seconds, anyway.

You can make a 55 character in any class with a Monk primary or secondary, although Warriors and Rangers have better ways of staying alive indefinitely.  However, you're horribly vulnerable to degen and enchantment-stripping.  Mesmers must be avoided at all costs, and a lot of Necros too.  Knockdown Eles and interrupt Rangers can mess you up as well.  Realistically, there's no use for a 55 character other than farming limited sections of the game.

The problem is you can't have two elite spells at once. And if i am soloing with my SS necro, i need SS. I haven't got factions yet, so i have no idea about it. Did play the preview event though.

No, they can't.  It's not possible to keep Spell Breaker up permanently, even with a 20% Enchanting mod, 16 Divine Favour and using Arcane Echo.  There's also half a dozen skills that can strip it, most notably Well of the Profane.

Grr, when 55 monking you need a necro to ss your enimies that are trying to rape you and killing an mesmers that come, but while the necro is trying to kill it you keep spell breaker up. That's mainly the plan this works if you're going ecto farming with only 2 people.

55hping is good when you're too lazy to do anything constructive or when you need some $$$. The only problem is, the good 55ing requires favor so that u can get in to Underworld. Underworld of course requires Spell Breaker etc, but there are areas you can farm much more easily without carrying SB at all.
I find one of the best places to do this is inside the Troll Cave outside of Droknar's Forge. The build i use for this includes no SB or Bonetti's Defence like my Underworld build has but rather Shield Of Judgement and Zealots Fire, which are both damage dealing attacks. This means of course that you dont need to go double and can farm trolls all buy yourself, increasing the quality and number of drops.
It's also a really easy run to get there and really easy to stay alive while the whole lot of 20ish trolls are attacking you at once and having them die within about 30 secs. You can PM me if you'd like me to show u sometime (IGN = 'Spble Someone' / 'Smelly Monk Fish').

if you're going to use your 55 to just farm trolls it's a waste of money making one, i use my warrior to kill those beats, without fail, it's actually alot easier with a warrior, beacuse the trolls can't really interupt important skills.

also, i have never had ss but i heard it's freaking awsome is it mesmer or necro skill, i have no idea =/

Also there was a QC guild but i think it died + i wouldn't be able to join my guild is to freaking awsome and in a 10 guild luxon allience with over 250K faction.

if you're interested anyone just say ;) (yes i will stop whoring my guild now)

Also couple this with the factions skill "reckless haste" which makes most of their attacks miss but makes them faster but even if they do miss i think ss still hurts them ;)

I only read the first and last page of this since it's mostly rambling, but I'm always looking for people to Guild Wars it up with, and I'm in the process of looking for a new guild, too.

What do any of you guys think of starting a QC guild :P?

Anyways, I've got a lvl 20 R/Mo and a lvl 15 E/Mo, so add Tann The Hunter to your friends list and message me if you wana party/need some help, I'm almost out of stuff to do in the game!

I could go for being recruited - and helping people too.

I'm really just too lazy to farm and all my runes have plummeted in worth so I'm still trying to scrounge up the lask 30k for my 15k armor set and then I have nothing else I'm interested in buying/accomplishing, except maybe finally choosing a faction.

I took my first foray into Guild Wars the other day having purchased Factions, and after a couple day's play, I am a level eight Ranger/spiritualist.

Look for Khaulu Tarn. I'm still around Shang Jea Monastery at the moment (I'm having a spot of trouble with that bloody Red Frog mission - the two NPCs keep getting killed)

I STILL have a level 8 ranger/ritualist (spirit magic a go-go)

I got him to level 8 like two weeks ago, and have barely touched the game since. I should probably come back to it at some point. I have a feeling I have a while to go before my character becomes really any good, and I think I need some help getting started really.

The Kansas City Hotsteppers - Looking for a few good Guilds
« Reply #234 on: 17 Jul 2006, 23:40 »

KCHS alliance leader is looking for new guilds to join up. The focus of the alliance is PVP mostly, but nobody is going to force players to PVP if they aren't into that. The other guild in the alliance is Imperial Death Squad. They are very GVG, TA, and AvA oriented. So there is almost always somebody to find in the alliance to PVP with. Alliance leader is also possibly considering joining a bigger alliance. That's kind of up in the air. I imagine the alliance would have to be pretty kick ass in order for that to happen. Some background about KCHS, it is a guild that was formed for fans of Penny Arcade webcomic strip. Any fans of Penny Arcade are welcome to join the guild if they are interested.

You can contact the alliance leader who goes by Xfire or RandomEngy.


Or visit the website at

Edit: Xfire is not the alliance leader's handle.  I thought it was, it's a IM program.   You can reach the alliance leader ingame with the name RandomEngy or use Xfire program as well.


RamenXnoodles I've been in KCHS for over a month now.  And the current line up of players are drama free.  Just thought I let you khnow.

3 lvl 20 characters ascended and beaten the game.
W/Mo Pyscho Men Tal (sword mastery)
E/Me Anita Angers (air magic)
Mo/N Asean Monk (healing)
A few lowbies
19 R/Me Psycho Mental (marksman)
14 A/N Ghin Lelanh (um, i forgot)
15 Rt/Me Atina Angers (i forgot)
I played guild wars for a bit more than 1 year.  Any help needed and I will answer your call.  Oh and mention QC or I will ignore :D  My sister plays the Rt and E.  I am currently guild less and I don't play much.  I can PvP and PvE.  Been to UW and FoW multiple times so I know what I'm doing.  Also my W/Mo has the 60k granite citadel armor.

Also I realise I messed up the spelling on my W/Mo and A/N.
