Optional slot
  • "I Am Unstoppable!" "I Am Unstoppable!" when learning the farm. The warriors can only KD you while you are running.
  • "Finish Him!" "Finish Him!" speeds up the kill a lot. Only for when you are confident that you won't get knocked on important moments (just before SF runs out), try some runs with "I Am Unstoppable!" "I Am Unstoppable!" first.

  • Try to pull the caster mobs into a ball (see video)
    • While cast IAU when there are warrior on you, to avoid getting KD while moving
    • Cast Grenth's Aura Grenth's Aura if your hp gets low
  • When the casters are nicely balled, run up to the boss and ball the melees aswel. Might need some repositioning.
