Usage

Vermin Farm

  • Upon entering Xaquang Skyway, bond yourself with Balthazar's Spirit and Life Bond and use "Incoming!" for a speed boost and run to the Vermin and flag the hero to the side (see video).
  • Right before aggroing the vermin, have the hero use Enduring Harmony, "Make Haste!", and "Healing Breeze" on yourself.
  • Move forward and cast Mark of Pain on the first Vermin you can and make sure "I Am Unstoppable!" is up and run down the stairs, turn right and head towards the bridge.
    • Once at the bottom of the stairs, unflag the hero so it follows you.
  • Once on the bridge, run up to the left wall stop and cast Protector's DefenseWary Stance wait a bit till your energy is full, Ebon Battle Standard of HonorSoldier's DefenseMark of Pain on a different target → Hundred BladesWhirlwind Attack
    • Make sure you do not move at all during this time or else you will cancel the effect of Protector's Defense.
  • You need at least three groups of the Vermin to kill them all at once. By this time, the hero should have caught up to you. Have it cast Dismiss Condition twice on you to heal and remove your conditions and quickly prepare for the next spike.
  • Wait for the incoming group to start moving (see video) then run in like before. Right before aggroing the vermin, have the hero use Enduring Harmony, "Make Haste!", and "Healing Breeze" on yourself.
  • Move forward and cast Mark of Pain on the first Vermin you can and make sure "I Am Unstoppable!" is up. Run through and grab the group to the right, then turn around to grab the other groups.
  • Before aggroing the group with Shreader Sharptongue, cast Protector's DefenseWary Stance wait a bit till your energy is full, Ebon Battle Standard of HonorSoldier's DefenseMark of Pain on a different target.
  • Once Shreader Sharptongue is aggroed and everything is all balled up, use Hundred BladesWhirlwind Attack and everything should die.
    • Shreader Sharptongue will have likely cast Seeping Wound on you which you can not survive. If you die, it is okay. You will resurrect on the other side of the bridge from earlier.
  • From here you can reset, or head North where there are three more groups of Vermin. Ball and spike them like the first group. Just be sure to run around a bit to give MoP time to recharge. (see video)



Drake Kabob Farming

  • Requires the Drakes on the Plain quest and requires you to take Koss.
  • Enter The Floodplain of Mahnkelon from Rilohn Refuge.
  • Have Koss use Enduring Harmony and "Make Haste!" on you then flag Koss into the group to the South-West.
  • At the same time, start running forward and use Mark of Pain on the first Steelfang Drakes you encounter and keep running through them with "I Am Unstoppable!" up.
  • Grab the second group and pull them up against any wall.
  • Once they are together in a ball, stop and cast Protector's DefenseWary Stance wait a bit till your energy is full, Ebon Battle Standard of HonorSoldier's DefenseMark of Pain on a different target → Hundred BladesWhirlwind Attack.
    • The drake groups spawn with a different number of drakes each time you enter the map. If you get less than 10 total drakes, there will be one drake left over. In this case, just keep attacking it. (see video for more variances).
  • Any Chunks of Drake Flesh you get can be exchanged for a Drake Kabob in Kamadan by talking to Chef Lonbahn or Apida in Yohlon Haven.



Minotaur Farming

  • Enter the Elona Reach Mission with a Speed Boost Paragon.
  • Head forward and talk to the Ghostly Priest who will give you a Vision Crystal. Drop the Vision Crystal and head towards the North.
  • Run towards the bridge. Cast Mark of Pain on the first Minotaur you get in range of. Keep running through towards the bridge and gather up all of the Minotaur on the way. Run under the bridge and pull the two or three Minotaurs on the other side.
  • Pull them up against any wall and stop and cast Protector's DefenseSoldier's DefenseEbon Battle Standard of HonorBonetti's Defense wait a bit till your energy is full, Mark of Pain on a different target → "To the Limit!"Hundred BladesWhirlwind Attack..

  • Enter Talus Chute from Droknar's_Forge with a Speed Boost Paragon.
  • With a speed boost, run to the west towards the cave where you will find the Mountain Trolls.
    • Use the speed boost hero as fodder to make it there if needed by flagging it into the group on enemies that could spawn in your way.
  • Enter the cave and cast Mark of Pain on the first Mountain Troll you get in range of. Run to the back of the cave until you reach a "T" in the path, grab the group that spawns around there, and turn left. Go up against the left wall near the rock.
