Route

Temple Guardian route

  • Start from Zin Ku Corridor and enter Tahnnakai Temple on Hard Mode then head north. An average runs takes ~12 minutes.
    • Optional: take a speed boost hero with you. Maintain Call of Haste Call of Haste else your Rollerbeetle will fall behind as it has a low base speed and can't keep up. Flag the hero south when you are about to exit the temple area.
  • Camp your staff and stay in range. Set the pet to heel, select targets manually. Let the pet grab aggro.
  • Spot 1 on the map is optional, if you are mainly here for the boss you can skip this. There are 2 Temple Guardians there and a Locked Chest could also spawn nearby. Chests and mobs in this zone have a chance to drop Celestial weapons!
  • Try not to aggro more than 2 Temple Guardians at once. While 3-4 is still manageable as long as the pet holds aggro, it's risky.
    • Pull with a bow if necessary and walk back before sending in your pet, as you don't want the pet to accidentally aggro more than you want.

Quansong Spiritspeak

  • Spot 2 is the boss. Killing the ritualist boss is the only hard part. Make sure to clear every nearby Teample Guardian first.
    • Sometimes pulling Temple Guardians also pulls the boss. Quansong will start summoning spirits when that happens - if you run away from him while he is summoning, he won't chase. Focus on clearing the Temple Guardians.
  • Initiate the fight with a bow and let him summon his 3 spirits. Walk slightly out of range, and once he starts following keep running.
    • You want to block line of sight of his elite spirit, Wanderlust Wanderlust . It doesn't matter if he is in range of spirits, the pet will kill the boss as long as Wanderlust isn't knocking the pet down.
    • Staying in range of the spirits should prevent the boss from resummoning them. If he somehow still manages to resummon Wanderlust, start running and LoS it again.
  • Before pulling the boss apply Call of Haste Call of Haste and Great Dwarf Weapon Great Dwarf Weapon to your pet. You want the pet to KD the boss as soon as possible, and he moves fast. Quansong could kill you in 2-3 casts or melee hits.
    • Try to use the bridges and the corners to your advantage. Your goal is to make the pet bodyblock the boss before he reaches you, and the pet can only do it near corners or walls. Bodyblocking helps the pet score some hits and stop the boss, starting the KD chain with GDW.
  • Once your pet took aggro, you should be good to go. Stay out of range, don't try to attack the boss. Spam pet skills at a safe distance, move in only to reapply GDW and YAAW.
    • Great Dwarf Weapon Great Dwarf Weapon is absolutely crucial here. Without the knockdown spam from this skill, the boss can do enough damage to kill the pet! With GDW active, your pet is safe. It can also prevent the boss from healing, ending the run faster.
