Farming Locations

Boss farms are noted with their profession icon

  • AssassinTahkayun Tsi (HM)
    • First you'll need to kill the two Mantid Drones on your way to the boss, their damage can be dangerous
    • Bring Vigorous Spirit and Critical Eye
    • A longbow for pulling is highly recommended
  • RangerJin the Skull Bow. Pull with a longbow and draw her to the pillar - this brings her out of spawn range of her bodyguards while the pillar will defend you from projectiles until you apply all the enchants. (HM)
  • MonkZiinjuu Life Crawler. Bring IMS and let your HP regenerate to at least 50% before pulling the boss. (HM)
