Build:W/Me Hundred Blades UW Farmer
The PvXwiki community finds this to be an excellent build.
This build has been designed for the following use:
The Hundred Blades Warrior uses the powerful AoE combo Hundred Blades and Whirlwind Attack to farm Smite Crawlers in the Underworld. Sympathetic Visage prevents Grasping Darknesses from interrupting you and Smite Crawlers from using Reversal of Fortune and Shield of Judgment. Physical Resistance allows you to tank damage effectively. The run can be as fast as 5-6 minutes with experience.

- Full Knight's Insignias.
- Rune of Superior Absorption.
- Sword of Enchanting with "I have the power!" insc. (energy +5). Used to extend your enchantment and give +5 energy so you only need to wait for 5 energy to regen, instead of 10, after using Physical Resistance at the Smites.
- Zealous Sword of Defense/Shelter with Dance with Death insc. (15% stance).
- Furious Scythe for building adrenaline.
- Strength Shield of Fortitude (-2 damage while in Stance). Victo's Bulwark, Strongroot's Shelter and Destructive Shield can all be used.
- Longbow/Flatbow of Fortitude for pulling Smites.
- Take the Clear the Chamber quest from the Lost Soul.
- Use Sprint and pull 1-2 groups of Grasping Darkness at a time to the center shrine. Any other enemies should break aggro.
- Auto-attack to build up adrenaline with your scythe or simply auto-attack with your sword.
- Once charged, use Bonetti's Defense followed by Visage, Physical Resistance, Hundred Blades and "For Great Justice!". If you're interrupted when casting the Visage, just use Physical Resistance, re-build up adrenaline and start again.
- Use Whirlwind Attack followed by Lion's Comfort. Using one will recharge the other thanks to "For Great Justice!", so you can alternate between spamming the two.
- Once you have completed the quest, run along the right side to the open gate, being sure to break aggro with the three or four nearby Aatxes.
- During the 2 seconds when Sprint is recasting, you can use Bonetti to protect yourself if any Aatxes get too close.
- Ball 2-3 groups of Smite Crawlers at a time.
- Use the same techniques used above on the Grasping Darkness.
- If a Smite Crawler casts Shield of Judgment, break aggro with Sprint, wait for "For Great Justice!" to recharge, and go again.
- Try to pull as many Smites as possible, as you can kill 6 or you can kill 50 in the same amount of time. Watch out for Coldfires and Skeletons of Dhuum as they can kill you.
- If a Dying Nightmare pops up, kill it so it doesn't strip Sympathetic Visage.
- You can easily break aggro with any Skeletons of Dhuum using Sprint. Try to avoid Bone Spike by strafing.
