Template code


  • Full Blessed/Windwalker Insignias
  • Defensive set for rounding up raptors
  • Any Scythe of Enchanting with a +5 energy inscription.


  • When you zone in, pick up the blessing on the way to the cave.
  • When you get to the entrance, have your hero cast Vocal Was Sogolon then use Enduring Harmony on you, followed by "Make Haste!", "Can't Touch This!", and "Stand Your Ground!". Flag your hero away so they won't interfere with anything.
  • Run into the cave and cast Signet of Mystic Speed. Cast Mark of Pain on the nearest Raptor Nestling.
  • Grab as many raptors in the cave as you can without depleting your shouts, and run towards Rekoff Broodmother's group.
  • After aggroing everything, cast Mirage Cloak. Wait until some raptors gather within adjacent range and then cast Vow of Strength followed by Armor of Sanctity; Signet of Mystic Speed prevents Armor of Sanctity and Vow of Strength from being interrupted. Spike the group with Dust Cloak->Pious Fury-> Tab to another raptor nestling and cast Mark of Pain->Eremite's Attack.
  • Watch everything explode and pick up your drops.
  • Rinse & repeat.


  • Aggroing a group outside the cave.
  • Taking too much damage before raptors can ball properly.
  • Second MoP rupted.
  • Spending too long time balling up the raptors, so that the first MoP runs out.
  • Forgetting to change target.


  • Vow of Strength triggers on attack rather than on hit, which means Critical Defenses from the Raptors has no impact on the build.
