Usage

Drakkar Lake route
  • Use alcohol avoid getting KDed by Irrestible Blow or run really fast to the entrance.
  • Avoid Ice Darts at all costs.
  • Use Death's Charge if you get bodyblocked, need healing, or to speed up the run.
  • Maintain Dark Escape with Dwarven Stability.
  • Maintain Shroud of Distress as needed.

Level 1

Level 1 route
  • Open the gate by stepping on the switch, avoid the Ice Darts.
  • Head through the door to the North and run to the next switch.
  • Try to avoid the Whirling Wisps while running and casting spells. They use Lyssa's Assault which will interrupt you.
  • Run through the Northeast opening and turn left at the split and head to the switch (at point 2 on the map).
  • Step on the switch.
  • Turn around and head back towards where you came from and continue straight through towards point 3 on the map.
  • Step on the switch then head back towards the second switch.
  • Continue past point 2 on the map to the gate to level 2.

Level 2

The safe spot for avoiding Diamondshard Mist.
  • Make your way to the boss room.
  • Before going into the room, walk sideways or backwards to maintain the aggro of the Ice Imps and Dryders. Pull them into the room.
  • Round up aggro and kill all the Avalanches before continuing. They use Frozen Burst which can hit you through Shadow Form.
  • Walking backwards or sideways, take your aggro and head to the right side of the boss. There is a bug where Diamondshard Mist won't take effect in that area.
  • Ebon Battle Standard of Honor -> Sliver Armor to kill the Remnant of Antiquities.
    • If you can get the cycle, you can use Glyph of Swiftness -> Shadow Form -> Sliver Armor -> Ebon Battle Standard of Honor. This will reduce the recharge time of Sliver Armor by 25% as well.
  • Stay on the very outside range of Sliver Armor. The boss tends not to use Frozen Burst there. Be sure to not leave the safe spot.
  • Collect chest and kill the remaining elementals if running people.

Counters

  • Rubberbanding
  • Being interrupted while casting Shadow Form or Shroud of Distress by Djinn. You don't need Shadow Form up unless there are Ice Elementals. Sliver Armor can help prevent interrupts.
