Do your part to bring variety back onto the scene of Guild Wars!
The current scene of smiting involves an Elementalist/Monk using fast recharge skills and Zealot's Fire, which takes advantage of using enchantments and Ether Renewal to keep up both energy and health with every cast, while dealing significant damage. Seems unfair? Many people feel that Ether Renewal should be changed, or rather, rebalanced.
