Guild Wars: Boon Prot monk video

Here's a fabulous video of a Boon Prot monk chock-full of useful tips. The build is pretty similar to the one I was talking about before. Many thanks to Sarus over at Team-iQ.

Note that this is Team Arena, so he's running Holy Veil instead of Contemplation of Purity. Pre-casting the Veil at the start then dropping it if there's no mesmers or necros on the other team is a good tip - I for one hadn't thought of that.

Another great tip in their forum thread from Arathorn - when kiting warriors on ice, stay in one spot but strafe from side to side for a minute. They'll keep hitting but will be still enough to trigger the ice effect. In case you didn't know, ice in GW slows you if you stop on it, which doesn't make any sense to me. Anyway, since you keep moving, you don't get slowed and then you can take off while they're lumbering slowwwwly after you.

I think "a minute" needs to be changed to "a second or two".
