Guild Wars: Playing Energy Denial

Solid article on playing an energy denial character (usually a Mesmer but sometimes a Ranger) over at GWGuru by Warskull. I'd already got a few hours in of the currently in-fashion Energy Surge mesmer. He lists a sample build which I'd tweak slightly:
10+1 Fast Casting
10+4 Dom
11+1 Inspiration

Energy Burn
Energy Surge
Signet of Weariness
Leech Signet / Blackout
Mind Wrack
Drain Enchantment
Mantra of Inscriptions
Rez Sig
The listed build uses Signet of Humility. I've played with it but either Leech or Blackout seem better.

Last night I ended up facing one of these guys (the Blackout version) as a boonprot. Twice, since Team Arena wasn't very busy. Man, I'm out of practice - I guess that's what happens when you play offense for a few weeks. Anyway, if you're more interested in defending against energy denial than playing it, you definitely need to read Ensign's excellent article on the subject.

That forum link be broke, least for now. I gotta read up on that stuff, too ... one of the easiest ways to get nailed as a monk.

Team-iQ seems to be dead today (it was ok last night). There's a mirror of the article over at GWGuru.
