Farming spots and builds

This build can easily farm groups of mobs, provided that they don't have enchantment removal, or overwhelming spell damage. A Vow of Strength dervish can also farm most Nick sets. Examples of farmable locations and the recommended utility skill selection include:


  • For farms of large groups of enemies, it may be advantageous to use a Necromancer secondary for access to Mark of Pain. It amplifies damage tremendously, allowing for clean spiking of the entire group at once. This is best used when the farm presents time pressure, where auto-attacking to finish off enemies isn't feasible, or where the enemies will scatter.


  • Enchantment Removal
