  • Apply Blessed Aura Blessed Aura and Balthazar's Spirit Balthazar's Spirit right as you zone in.
    • Optional: casting Blessed Aura with a Divine Favor +1 (stacking) headpiece and/or a Divine Favor Staff of Mastery can increase the effectiveness of this enchant. Getting the Staff proc may take multiple casts, if you have the patience. Be sure to switch back to the correct equipment once the enchant is up.
  • Before pulling cast Protective Spirit Protective Spirit and Shield of Absorption Shield of Absorption. (You should do this no more than two seconds before you do the next step, and the order is very important). Maintain these enchants until the end of combat.
    • If you brought Shielding Hands Shielding Hands maintain this as well whenever Shield of Absorption is about to run out.
  • Aggro your enemies. You must keep up Shield of Absorption continuously. Depending on how high your Divine Favor attribute was when you cast Blessed Aura, you can have as little as .5 seconds to recast it - or you may have as many as 1.85 seconds.
  • Use your damage skills for damage.

Farming Areas



  • Like all invincimonk builds, this build will be easier with practice.
  • While this build will work if you are reduced to 1 hp (only when you won't encounter any creatures with a degeneration ability which will severely limit farming opportunities) it will require very quick reflexes to maintain constant coverage from Shield of Absorption.
  • Consider removing the Healing Prayers piece of armor if you die.
  • Try not to cast Protective Spirit and Shield of Absorption at about the same time; try to parse them so there is a one second lag between the two so as to phase out the healing from Divine Favor. If you are bringing Zealot's Fire, wait at least three seconds between casting the two so as to not cause enemies to scatter.
  • This build will not make ranged monsters run from you, but melee monsters in groups of 3 or more will run from you (unless they cannot be knocked down, such as Hydras).
