Usage

Feathers

This is the route for the farm.
  • Always precast Sand Shards.
  • When foes start hitting you use Mystic Regeneration, Conviction, Vow of Strength. (Remember that you have windwalker's, so 4enchantments up means +20armor)
  • Once most of the melee mobs are on you, use Armor of Sanctity.
  • Wait a bit more, in order for the casters to ball. Spike when either everything is balled or you're about to die.
  • Nuke with Conviction => Eremite's Attack. (Conviction should be recharged by now, since balling takes ~10sec).
  • Right after you hit with the spike use Sand Shards and finish leftovers with autoattacks or Conviction => Eremite's Attack in order to remove Weakness.

Skalefin Soup

Route to farmspot
  • The enemies for this farm are far less threatening, so drop Mystic Regeneration Mystic Regeneration and Armor of Sanctity Armor of Sanctity and take Dwarven Stability Dwarven Stability, Pious Haste Pious Haste, Zealous Renewal Zealous Renewal and Death's Charge Death's Charge for maximum speed.
  • Leave Jokanur Diggings to Fahranur, The First City in normal mode.
  • Run to the farmspot using Dwarven Stability Dwarven Stability -> Zealous Renewal Zealous Renewal -> Pious Haste Pious Haste + Death's Charge Death's Charge.
  • Once arrived there, position yourself in the middle of the Skales.
  • Spike them with Sand Shards Sand Shards -> Vow of Strength Vow of Strength -> Conviction Conviction -> Eremite's Attack Eremite's Attack.
  • Kill any leftovers with auto-attacks.
  • Trade in Skale Fins for Bowls of Skalefin Soup at Chef Panjoh in The Astralarium, at a ratio of 2:1.


Counters

  • Over aggroing.
  • Bad use of Mystic Sanctity.
  • Failing to cover Vow of Strength on the spike.

Notes

  • You can tank and spike 3 groups at once.
  • If done properly there should be no need for cleanup. Everything should die with eremite's, or at most with one attack after it (for smaller groups).
  • No alcohol required.
  • D/Me is safer but longer (no IMS / IAS).
  • Pick Feathered Crests, they salvage into 3-4 feathers!
