This is the route for the farm.

  • Enter Jaya Bluffs from Seitung Harbor. (For more details and locations see: Guide to feather farming.)
  • Cast Generous Was Tsungrai before grabbing aggro.
  • After aggro is taken, and at around mid-to-low health, cast Vengeful Was Khanhei while waiting for the rest of the Sensali to ballup.
  • Once everything is balled, cast Spirit Rift, Ancestor's Rage, and Light of Deldrimor to kill all around you. If everything was in range, there should be no stragglers.


  • Waiting too long for ball and cannot maintain health.
  • Over aggroing.
  • Run out of energy.
