- Standard armor set. Blessed/Sentry insignias and the highest Vigor rune possible are recommended.
- A one-handed weapon with energy +5 and a mod of Enchanting.
- A shield with a +10 vs Earth inscription and a Fortitude mod is the most optimal here. Other shields can also be considered, you have some leeway here.
The Chamber / The Labyrinth
- Use your team of heroes to clear the path to the Ice Wastes. A regular meta team like Mesmerway will easily dispatch foes on the way.
- Stay behind when facing Aatxes, you don't want Death Penalty when facing Smites.
- Aggro multiple Smite groups at the same time if possible as the build is very safe.
- Before aggroing, cast Mantra of Earth, Signet of Illusions, Stone Striker, Stoneflesh Aura.
- With all the Smites on you, cast Sympathetic Visage then quickly cast multiple SoI-boosted Wastrel's Demises, switching targets after each cast.
- If facing a small group, recast those skills a second time.
- The Smite group will die in a few seconds. Repeat the same procedure for every Smite Crawler group in the Ice Wastes.
Skeletons of Dhuum
- Before engaging a Skeleton, check for problematic patrols which could disturb you. If everything is all clear, proceed.
- Spam Wastrel's Demise and Ether Feast. Both must be always boosted by Signet of Illusions.
- Use your OptionalCoreNo Profession. UnlinkedOptionalOptionalOptional. skill to dispatch the Skeleton.
- The Skeleton will quickly die.
- Feel free to study the little patrol map on the "Usage" section to familiarize yourself with the Ice Wastes.
- Never aggro Coldfire Nights. Learning their patrols is a key part of Smite Crawler farming.
