Plus they are all survivors so ...
But, as I was saying earlier, I did fight my way from Beacons to Droks (on two different guys even!) with them on my lvl15-ish guys and heroes and didn't have much issues with the amount of heals:
And smiting was my preferred option to finish Nightfall on my Assassin so I imagine it shouldn't be that problematic for most of content.
I use combo of smiting and divine favour on my Ogey but on my Talh I se hybrid heal/protect.
Edit: I just did the exact same test as Erring. Tahlk did indeed pre-prot herself as the Lightning Javelin flew towards her and the damage was reduced. That means something else is in play. What exactly are you doing wrong, Erring?

And of course there's the further issue of them almost never landing the right prot, but I think we're all aware of that one.
Bottom line: they spam, and they do it like morons. It's why the ER build works so well for them; they can pretend like they have infinite energy and they're usually right. Now quit talking with a mouth full of carp. Darn bottomfeeders...

No one ever claimed hero monks were unstoppable. It doesn't change what I said, it's still correct. They see an attack coming at you, they'll do their best to "pre-prot" you. At best, they pre-prot you more efficiently than a human, at worst you get hit with a single attack, which is still far better than most human prot monks.
Quit being so goddam argumentative. I never said anything non-factual. If I want to yell at you as well, I'll say I've tried ER eles and I think they ****ing suck, they get their enchants stripped non-stop and require an enormous amount of micro. There, now we're even. Edit: Oh ya, they're horrific at maintaining ER.

And I'm not sure why the ER protter doesn't work for you...I never touch mine, his energy never goes down, and ER is one of the first enchants he casts...right before he covers it with AoR and a stupid amount of prots. Hmm...maybe that'd make for a fun video as well...thanks for the idea .
Sorry, my anger was mostly at Lytha, she's often pisses me off. I think she's German or Austrian or something and I recently read an article on how Germans are physically incapable of having polite conversations with anyone other than other Germans due to their abrupt culture. Seriously, it was on BBC news, not a humor article.
I guess where your misunderstanding me is in the word "target". I don't picture the AI using "c" to target, that's purely a human user-interface convenience. The AI has everything on the battlefield targeted at the same time, (so most of us think anyway.) I meant targeted as in "stopped watching you and started attacking you." I believe the reason the hammer doesn't land and the axe does land is that PS has a 1/4th second cast time. Unfortunately we can no longer test protting with a mesmer.
My prot monks take the most effecient prot spells that I don't care if they cast regardless of the situation. PS is always going to be good to have on you, even if you're in the farthest backline, and it lasts a very long time unlike SB. RoF is perfect for what prot monks do, an axe warrior wailing on you is the perfect time to just sit there and cast RoF. If I see a better first target for Guardian, I often spam RoF on a secondary target on my human monk. I don't take guardian on a hero except in 4 man parties because it isn't always a great solution. In 4 man parties, someone is usually getting autoattacked (which is LARGE damage in HM) so guardian is ok to have.
I find ER eles often don't maintain AoR, and they don't even try to maintain ER, it's just like a random battle cast. I'm not sure why they don't consistently keep AoR, it really shocked me when I noticed it.
Without the e-management they are far worse than a prot monk hero. Even just ten spammed prots will heal for 500 in divine favor alone, and the prot monk isn't filled with 10e spells. 10e spells make short work of ~87 energy.
But that's not really something I'm worried about, both prot monks and ER eles are slightly obsolete at the 7 hero stage of the game. Smite monks and ST rits are what's hip these days.
I guess you don't know anything about board rules do you.Aside from the fact that you're sort of a dick
I would take Lytha advice over yours any day.
