    • Pious Fury Pious Fury
    • Heart of Fury Heart of Fury
    • Drunken Master Drunken Master - If this is used then a speed con is not necessary, however alcohol is without R5 Delver
  • Optional Optional 2:
    • Vow of Piety Vow of Piety for faster battles, but harder aggros. (Suggested)
    • Shroud of Distress Shroud of Distress for safer aggros, but harder to keep up while attacking. Lower scythe mastery to 9 and wind prayers to 12.

Equipment

  • Superior Vigor rune, 2 vitae runes. Windwalker insignias on all armor.
  • Zealous Scythe of Enchanting, Defensive set for aggroing the mindblades.

Usage

  • Bring 7 heroes and clear the chamber to unlock the door to the plains.
  • Use a con that gives a speed boost, such as Birthday Cupcake or Blue Rock Candy, to help you run to the behemoths.
  • If you can make it through without getting hit by traps, then continue running to the plains. If not, bring your heroes to help you clear them out.
  • Once at plains, cast Vow of Piety, Grenth's Aura, and finally Vow of Silence.
  • **From this point on, make sure to keep Signet of Mystic Speed active constantly.**
  • Aggro the Wailing Lord and Banished Dream Rider.
  • Start attacking them by chaining Aura SlicerReap Impurities → Repeat.
  • Once Pious Fury ends, use the skills quickly in this order: Pious FuryGrenth's AuraVow of Silence
    • If you don't do it fast enough, you will get hexed before you can activate vos.
  • Once the Mindblade Spectres spawn from the Banished Dream Rider, aggro them all using your defensive set. You should be taking some damage, but not enough to kill you.
  • Make sure to bodyblock them to a wall that's on your right side before attacking them or else they will start to scatter.
  • Kill them using the same attack chain.
  • Repeat.
  • Note: During the waves of 6 and 9 Mindblade Spectres, you will take significant damage. Try to aggro and begin attacking them to heal yourself with Grenth's Aura.
    • Don't attack them if they aren't grouped together yet. If you're close to dying but can't attack, run next to them and use Grenth's Aura to heal yourself quickly.

Counters

  • Taking too much damage from the attacks.
  • Aggroing more than 1 group at a time.
  • Not renewing Vow of Piety before it runs out.
  • Forgetting to cast Signet of Mystic Speed.

Notes

  • This build is more difficult to run than the A/D Plains Farmer, but kills faster since there is no attack skill disabling from Deadly Paradox.
  • Using an Armor of Salvation reduces damage you take by a lot, and allows you to aggro 2 groups of mindblades at the same time, speeding up the farm.
  • Signet of Mystic Speed is bugged so that when you cast it a second time while it is already active it will not reset the number of enchantments that it has left. Wait until it completely runs out before recasting it.
