Equipment

  • Full Blessed or Survivor Insignias
  • 40/40 Earth Magic set
  • Defensive set

Usage

  • Put Lukas into your party. You want him to get banished so that the Shiro'ken Warrior spawns. Sliver Armor and Celestial Storm will kill the warrior and recharge Celestial Storm.
  • Grab Celestial Storm from Kuunavang and put it in the empty slot.
  • Walk through the gate and trigger the cutscene. If running people, indicate where they should stand (usually at either of the two towers).
  • Stand just outside of aggro range and cast Armor of Earth → Ward Against Melee → Mental Block → Arcane Echo → Echo and then get aggro.
  • When he banishes Lukas and a Shiro'ken Warrior spawns, cast Celestial Storm → Echo → Celestial Storm → Celestial Storm → Ebon Battle Standard of Honor → Sliver Armor
  • After killing the Shiro'ken Warrior, cast all of your Celestial Storms and renew Ward Against Melee and Armor of Earth.
  • Shiro may not die if Mhenlo or another player aggros him or he just doesn't want to stay in Celestial Storm. In this case, resign and try again.

Counters

  • Mhenlo getting aggro.
  • One of the people you are running interfering.
  • In Hard Mode, the Bound Warriors will sometimes run out of the Celestial Storm area of effect too soon.
  • Henchman getting killed before banishment

Notes

  • AI will prioritize following players in motion over stationary players. Players being run can pull Mhenlo away to avoid aggroing Shiro or the Warrior construct this way.
