That's exactly what I said, out loud. EiveTalk 16:58, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Could either of you explain your reactions? -- Frozzen
Ray Of Judgement was the Shoop Da Whoop GW1 skill , and A-net made it even more overpowered for GW2? :p --User The Holy Dragons sig.pngThe Holy Dragons 17:14, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't know if I would have that reaction. Firstly, it's channeled, so you're kind of out of the fight. Secondly, we don't know the recharge yet. Thirdly, hello defensive bonus. I"m on the fence about this skill at the moment, I"m hoping anet will learn from GW1. Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 17:19, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
I loved to play AB with(not as, with) RoJ monks, I always ":D"'d extra much when I had one on my team. Now that I began to like the Guardian alot this will make me love them. I love RoJ so much my Ranger has it!(No, not really, but my Ranger does have it, for no reason. :P) --AdventurerPotatoe User AdventurerPotatoe sigimage.gif - 18:00, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Time for some JESUS BEAMING. YEEEEEEEAAAAAHHHHHHHHH. --Odal talk 18:02, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
I facepalmed so hard I hurt my face. ShadowRunner 18:02, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
I really think we should see the skill in action before we pass judgment. It works as a ball rather then a stationary ray and we have already been told in the gamespot interview that Guardians aren't a High DPS class. Plus with a defensive bonus the damage probably won't be all that much and it bounces from target to target so it may not hit every target depending on its course. Will still need to see it in actions. I think it sounds interesting. 18:51, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Venom,where are you getting that the skill is channeled? I explored both links in the reference section and found nothing to suggest that. Caedon 22:09, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

I highly doubt that this skill will be overpowered like the one in gw1. Seriously, come on. --smøni 21:08, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

It is not overpowered in GW1, not when the bad guys run out of it. Ramei Arashi 22:49, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
It was op though and I think that's what they're getting at. --smøni 00:52, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
I also doubt this will be overpowered, now, I see why they removed 2nd professions. ;) - Lucian User Lucian.png 4:39, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
In elaboration of my opening comment; it had nothing to do with GW2 per say and was indeed in response to the sheer overpowered status of RoJ in GW, before the AI was fixed accordingly. It still dominates JQ and other shrines in PvP. As for RoJ in GW2, this skill probably draws almost all the monks to this profession. The Ion Cannon lives on. - Infinite - talk 14:19, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Amen. - Lucian User Lucian.png 23:19, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
guardians replace prot/smite monks while water eles replace healer monks - and they can change so that they can attack XD Getefix 20:06, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
you guys are being extreme. if this skill was named anything else, no one would have said a thing. 18:07, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
Probably still would ;P --Angelkiss User IcyyyBlue Elementalist Blue.png 21:27, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

RoJ in PvP Jade Quarry might be as 'OP' as you like but in normal PvE it's weeeaaaaak. It's horrible when a bunch of HM monsters all cast it on your balled party at the same time, but when the monk in your party whips out a RoJ most people's reaction is "why aren't you healing?". I played a smiter for over two years and even Archane Eccoing RoJ at Smiting Prayers 16 it's a poor gambit in PvE. Who would ever use it in DoA for example? If Anet want to make the Guardian a playable class in GW2 the RoJ really does need all the beefing up it can get 08:06, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

lolPvE. I thought people were over this already. ^^ Mediggo 12:42, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
"Who would ever use it in DoA for example?" Me, this evening, worked great. Let the mocking commence. Robdalf 06:38, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
people still play GW? and still do DoA? WOW RhoninUser Rhonin Soren sig.pngSoren 12:24, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
Healing monks. In PvE. lol. - Infinite - talk 12:30, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Mysterious New Note?[edit]

I realize [] has been updating skill info with what appears to be current info. Does anyone know what "The number of bounces is 3" could mean? Doesn't the ray just go in a straight line, that you move back and forth? Yeah... I know. I could wait -3days to find out...  Frostty1 19:36, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Four shalt thou not bounce, neither bounce thou two, excepting that thou then proceedest on to three. Five is right out! Felix Omni Signature.png 19:38, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
@Frostty, several skills have an effect like this:
 Miscellaneous effect.png Number of hits: 3
That's probably what the anon meant to add, but didn't know the syntax for the effect template. I'd say just leave the article as-is until Friday. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 19:43, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the feedback. I'm aware of: Bouncing, Piercing & Hits; which is why I was confused. From the videos I have seen, I thought RoJ went in a straight line. So when anon said bounce I experienced brain-lock.
  • Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then thy Ray of Judgment shall judge no more.  Frostty1 01:10, 6 June 2012 (UTC)


This does not seem to count towards FOCUS kills for Weaponmaster achievement, even though it's a focus skill. -- 18:50, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

The skill can't be used to receive credit for kills, it doesn't inflict damage and no traits give it damage.--Relyk ~ talk < 22:57, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
actually, the skill does do damage.-- 15:14, 7 August 2014 (UTC)


"The player who used this skill is always the first target affected and the ray of light can also bounce back to them". Pretty sure the bolded part isn't true; it should be removed. -- 07:17, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
