Surely a bonder brings [[Life Barrier]] as his elite? This is a good skill for the healer to bring in something like a 5 man FoW group, because everyone will have at least 2 enchantments on them. The bonder doesn't need it, and it would deny him the usual elite for a bonder. You will have less "enchantments to play with" if you don't bring Life Barrier. If Blessed Signet gets interrupted, the bonder is in trouble, and I don't think 4-6 energy every 6 seconds will save you. In my bonder build with Mantra of Inscriptions I need around +21 energy every 6 seconds. --[[User:Carth|Carth]] 18:59, 26 September 2006 (CDT)

:Agreed, most of my bonder builds quite often need 25-26 energy every 6 seconds inbetween battles, and +30 energy in battles. Maintaining 12-13 enchants is hard work with no time for boon sig without LBa in a medium to high end bonds build who also boon prots rof. However, boon would work as support enchant maintainer in various other protter/healer/smiter builds or if you didn't have prophecies to cap LBa... -Confused_Enemy

Revision as of 22:05, 15 January 2007

Could someone please explain to me how this is good?

you heal yourself for free if you have 3 or more enchantments. it's a self heal. _ Memy Das.

Well.. aegis, boon prot monks, orders blah theres loads of enchantments Skuld Monk 13:45, 11 May 2006 (CDT)
Bah Skuld beat me to it ... this is what I had to say: Boon Prot monks can use this after other spells to recover mana every few seconds instead of a lump sum every 15-20 seconds. It is aptly named. --209.34.209.155 13:46, 11 May 2006 (CDT)
Well it says "heal other ally" , so it isn't a self heal right ? and even at max it's only 6nrj every 6seconds (i guess 7 at 17 divine favor), AND it's not a spell so no divine favor heal ... i really don't think this is gonna find it's place in "my" Boon Prot skill bar unless it gets a power-up in either energy output, healing (BIG powerup)OR is converted to a NOT-Elite skill, i mean comeon there way better elites (and a few worse :D ). - arashi
Rof->boon->mend->boon keep up perm w/ added heal Skuld Monk 05:25, 13 May 2006 (CDT)
It's really more about the energy management than the healing. Kind of like Blessed Signet for non-bonders. I prefer this over Mantra of Recall since I get the energy right away. Besides, in PvE, there are enchants flying all over the place anyway. Kessel 01:29, 9 June 2006 (CDT)
Seem to spend more time trying to get energy rather than doing any healing. It's no use for me. Shame as the skill looked like it had some potential --SK Monk-icon-small.png 00:20, 28 June 2006 (CDT)

With aegis usually up I use this on the ele henches, I get 4 energy minimum and they usually have another enchantment on aswell ^^ only thing i dont like is the health.. for 33 they might as well not have bothered Skuld Monk 06:03, 27 May 2006 (CDT)

oops sorry bout that last update. I completely misread the skill. I thought you'd gain 6 energy for each enchantment on your target. If that was true it would be useful, though a bit overpowered. with the current description I must agree it's crap

The healing from this is more trouble than good - I killed mungri with scourge.. — Skuld Monk 02:04, 28 June 2006 (CDT)

Horrid skill. Who do they think they are kidding? Spending one second every sixth to gain a conditional 6 energy? Glyph of Energy provides (theoretically) the same energy regeneration! Never had a place on my bar since I capped it. Ubermancer 00:53, 3 August 2006 (CDT)

Very good skill! Try this build (Boon bonder). Life bond - Holy veil - Divine boon - Mend ailment - Balthazar's spirit - Reversal of fortune - Blessed signet - Boon signet. Put lifebond on teammates. Put Balthazar's spirit, Divine boon and Holy veil on yourself in that order. Holy veil is the cover enchantment. If it gets removed it will remove on hex from yourself. The important Balthazar's spirit will be covered by both veil and boon. Use blessed signet when needed. Cast boon signet on yourself to get 6 energy everytime. When played properly this build will really never run out of energy. Works very well in ra and ta when you only have to bond 4 people Make it a habit to cast boon signet in between heals and use it everytime it's ready. The power of boon signet is that you get energy all the time and you don't have to depend on blessed signet. Even if blessed signet is interrupted you get energy from boon signet + balthazar's spirit. Energy denial is ineffective vs boon signet on a bonder. Don't bother using boon signet if you don't have a build with enchantments.

This is an UberJohnny Skill.

Explanation. If we count GW like Magic the Gathering, it is one of those skills they make that has no efficiency and is just to entice people to TRY to make a build with it that works. "Card power is relative...As you grow as a player, you get better at determining a card’s potential...The point is that a card’s utility can change wildly based on the current metagame.
One day a card sucks, the next it’s a fundamental card in the best deck at the highest power-level Pro Tour ever held." -[1]
I have tried myself a few times, but there isn't that many enchantments you can cast that aren't maintained. At best you could use Protective Spirit/Vigorous Spirit/Spirit Bond for 3 enchantments, but the sheer energy cost would kill.--Life Infusion 20:58, 21 August 2006 (CDT)

What's wrong with maintained enchantments? At 11+ Divine Favor Boon Signet lets you maintain up to three enchantments on someone for free, and at 14+ Divine Favor or with Mantra of Inscriptions it lets you turn a profit. With Blessed Signet, Boon Signet and Mantra of Inscriptions it lets you maintain even more. -- Gordon Ecker 20:59, 30 August 2006 (CDT)
Theres a difference, a bonder builds deals with massive energy degen. Maintained enchants are a problem, if you want to gain energy from Boon Signet. If you try to maintain 3 enchants on yourself only and use Boon Signet, then you have the positive effects of the enchants, but no energy income. --Nemren 03:36, 31 August 2006 (CDT)
No energy income and no energy cost. And you can maintain them on anyone as long as all three are on the same person. It should also work pretty well as an energy management skill as long as your party has at least one Elementalist (or, in less than a month, Dervish) with an enchantment-heavy build. -- Gordon Ecker 05:16, 4 October 2006 (CDT)

I currently run this as emanagement on my (pve) monk. I don't find the cost of having 3 enchantments on you at a time is prohibitive, I find that it's more the time taken (1 sec out of every 6) to cast it on yourself is the real problem. I currently use Boon, Illusion of Weakness (cast & forget) and zealot's fire (only once every 60 sec) or channelling in some situations as my 3 enchants, so the cost of only zealot's isnt too bad. Although it takes more effort to have to click BS ever 6 sec, I think the high energy gain, coupled with the fact that you can use it at 0 energy, make this skill not horrible. --Van The preceding unsigned comment was added by 202.76.156.26 (talk • contribs) 00:28, 27 August 2006 (CDT).

In a Tainted + Aegis team, you can often get a nice energy gain from it. It also means you can boon prot with an Me/A, and devote no points in inspiration for energy. Silk Weaker 08:00, 20 September 2006 (CDT)

Bonder

The note: "One of the best skills to bring as a bonder. You should have plenty of enchantments to play with and if blessed signet gets interrupted you can always use this for energy. Solid skill in the right build."

Surely a bonder brings Life Barrier as his elite? This is a good skill for the healer to bring in something like a 5 man FoW group, because everyone will have at least 2 enchantments on them. The bonder doesn't need it, and it would deny him the usual elite for a bonder. You will have less "enchantments to play with" if you don't bring Life Barrier. If Blessed Signet gets interrupted, the bonder is in trouble, and I don't think 4-6 energy every 6 seconds will save you. In my bonder build with Mantra of Inscriptions I need around +21 energy every 6 seconds. --Carth 18:59, 26 September 2006 (CDT)

Agreed, most of my bonder builds quite often need 25-26 energy every 6 seconds inbetween battles, and +30 energy in battles. Maintaining 12-13 enchants is hard work with no time for boon sig without LBa in a medium to high end bonds build who also boon prots rof.

Elementalist

Bring an Elementalist (hydromancers/geomancers use lots of enchants!) or a Derivsh. This skill becomes the equivalent of 3 pips of energy regeneration. 3 pips = 1 energy / 1 second

x6 seconds = 6 energy

Boon Signet = 1 sec cast + 5 sec recharge

x3 enchants = 6 energy

If you do not have access to either a Dervish or enchanting Elementalist, do not bring this skill with you.
