    I think being a good paragon is more about positioning yourself rather than being talented at using your skills. Its a different type of thing to master which allows GW to cater to different groups which is always a good thing.

    2 monk teams are not going anywhere in pvp. If a mesmer uses blackout, you dont want all of your protection / healing skills disabled.

    As for PvE I am actually really disappointed in the Paragon's healing abilities.

    This is the first Bard Class in a RPG that has nowhere near the healing abilities of healers (usually they are near par). The superior armor and Weapons dont synergize with the bard skills (and bard primary) at all.

    Finally, Ritualists suck as healers. All of their skills (except for odd things like resiliant weapon) are worse duplicates of monk skills, and they dont get divine favor, and they dont get energy management from their primary, and their weapon skills dont "stack" which makes them a lot worse than enchantments.

    So far, you have nothing to base such an absurd comment on. Sure the PvP weekend may have some proof to support your claim, but until we receive the full skill list you don't know. Besides, already there are effective healing builds for paragon-only skills.

    1. You're wrong.

    2. Ritualists are not monks. They are not meant to be monks. Ritualists are meant to be played differently. They have spirits, and their heals get bonuses based on if spirits are around. Have you ever tried healing as a ritualist? My ritualist isn't even off shing jea island and is an effective healer.

    1. Most ritualist healing skills are better than Monk equivalents, they just don't benefit from Divine Favor.
    2. Ritualists have several powerful energy management skills.
    3. Their weapon skills can't be shattered so they are a safe and reliable defense.

    weapons are safer than enchantments true. But someone could use Dulled weapon on you and override your weapon enchantment with their weapon. Although you can simply cast it over again, Dulled weapon looks like the only weapon counter

    Wrong. Dulled Weapon is the name but it is in fact just a hex. Currently, the only two counters to Weapon spells are interrupts and a dumb Ritualist over casting yours.

    Sure you can compare the Paragon to "Bards" but they are entirely different than that which has been made in other games, just like all the professions in GW. They don't have the same support as the stereotypical "bard" but does the stereotypical version have the same offence? No. The Paragon is not a Bard, just like the Ritualist is not a Monk.

    I would also like to point out that the Dervish also has some healing capabilities. We could be seeing 1 Monk and 1 Dervish/Ritualist/Paragon + possibly a third.

    You know Dulled Weapon is a hex and not a weapon spell... right?
