Template code





  • Start from Jade Flats (Kurzick), and enter into Melandru's Hope.
    • The first time you do this, you should head back into the outpost to make sure for the next run you spawn at the top of the outpost to minimise rezone time.
  • Shoot at Chkkr with your bow once from the top of the stairs, then run further down until you can hide behind the rock to your right further down the stairs. Chkkr will now run towards you.
  • Apply your hexes Empathy, Migraine and Frustration.
  • Interrupt the next spell with Power Spike.
  • Renew Empathy.
  • Keep interrupting the following spells until Chkkr is dead.
  • Once Chkkr is dead, shadow step to your loot with Necrotic Traversal.
    • This may trigger foes to spawn, be prepared to pick up loot quickly.


  • Taking too long, so the patrol will attack you.

Optional Shout Hero

Variant: Me/N Chkkr Brightclaw Farmer HM Optional Shout Hero
You gain 2 Energy for each ally affected by one of your Shouts or Chants (maximum 1 Energy).
Template code
  • Micro the hero to use Vocal was Sogolon, Enduring Harmony on you, followed by "Make Haste!".
  • Flag near start so it does not interfere and steal drops.
  • It is recommended that you bring a full party of heroes (flagged near the start so that they do not interfere with drops) to ensure that you can collect your loot.
