Template code



  • Start outside Nahpui Quarter and right away cast Dwarven Stability Dwarven Stability and then Natural Stride Natural Stride and head towards the mantids. Use a second Natural Stride Natural Stride as soon as it is off cooldown.
  • Stop before aggroing the first mantid group and use Shroud of Distress Shroud of Distress , followed by Deadly Paradox Deadly Paradox , and then Shadow Form Shadow Form .
  • Then recast Natural Stride Natural Stride and start grabbing the groups.
    • Do not stop and get chests on the way, you can get them afterwards.
  • After you aggro the last group you want to place your Shadow of Haste Shadow of Haste as close to this spot as possible.


  • Keep running and turn right into the little cove and run to the far corner to pull the mantid monks around the wall.
    • Be sure not to hug the right side of the cove, as monks that are too close to you will not pull in.


  • Once in the corner, recast Dwarven Stability Dwarven Stability and Shadow Form Shadow Form .
    • Do NOT use any stances during this, even to recast your SF as it will then cancel your SoH.
  • Once you have recasted your spells and have made sure the mantid monks are balled, go ahead and use Natural Stride Natural Stride to jump back to your SoH spot. Due to the necromancers having short bow range, walk back a few steps to pull them into the monks. Wait until all of the mantid necromancers are settled, then run in and use Whirling Defense Whirling Defense , either when your Natural Stride ends or once you are in the middle of them all.


  • As soon as you are in place, go ahead and cast your Edge of Extinction Edge of Extinction where you are standing as soon as possible.
    • Make sure not to cancel your Whirling stance or move around. If you balled poorly, you might need to move a bit to make sure all mantids reach below 90% health.
  • Wait until everything is dead, then pick up your drops and go get any chests that might have spawned.


  • If you are too slow getting to the mantids (possible disconnect, maybe AFK, or if you died once already), the mantid groups could start getting bad aggro, making them unable to be balled, slowing the run down, or failing.
  • It is recommended to bring Lockpicks as there is a chance chests will spawn in the area. These chests have the ability to drop Celestial Weapons plus possible Am Fah Chests in the distance.
  • Be sure to check chests south of where you kill mantids, as 1 to 2 can spawn in Am Fah territory.
