Well yes, I never enter RA as a monk without guardian on my bar, but I still consider that a variation of the standard Mo/W build.
It is possible that a prot/heal hybrid is better, but I also kind of consider my Mo/W a heal/prot hybrid heh. If you're a damage/heal hybrid tho, I don't think it works as well.
Still monking with that infamous Mo/W bar in RA is way harder than hitting 1-2-3 in the HB/UA bars, which was mainly my point. I believe the HB/UA bars are the easiest ones to use, and that doesn't mean they're the best. So I'm always annoyed when they ask me to drop my prot build over an HB build.
