Since the beginning of the preview, questions have been raised like "are dervishes overpowered?" or "What bugs will be found using the new classes to abuse pvp?" but I think no one imagined the sheer stupidity of the contemplation of purity (CoP) spike that is taking heroes' ascent by storm. In my opinion and the opinion of many others, something must be immediately done to nerf this build, just like sand shards. Heroes' ascent just isn't fun when an unblockable irresistable area effect damage spike that cannot be averted with hexes or conditions is used constantly. People said iway was taking the fun out of the game - but I think iway would be a huge step in the right direction from this.

cop spike - the end of gw as we know it?

No I totally agree... I just personally experienced the sheer stupidity of this build.
IMO - Time for a new update.

I'd have to say that this is a good time to be patient and wait for the new skills for all the classes to be released before jumping to conclusions.
I mean chances are there is going to be a better combo / setup to run once the game is fully released.

Well, isnt it nice? Out of ALL monk skills, the one that facilitates the spike is none other than contemplation of purity!
One would think the horrid expressionless blue baby face had given that away long time ago!

CoP should just cost more and heal less. The removing is fine. 10 energy and half its current heal would be nice.

Contemplation of Purity spikes damage? Wha?This barren soil
scorched and stained
by the blood of soldiers
left fallen in the rain
All the light in the world today
Won't light up the night
into which I walk away

At least that's my understanding of it without looking at anything.
As to what skills to use, uhmm;
Heart Of Holy Flame
Is about all I can come up with off the top of my head.
