Dust Farming

Dust Farming Route (Black Curtain).jpg
  • Leave from Temple of the Ages and follow the route in the video using Flame Djinn's Haste for a speed boost.
  • Before aggroing, use Glyph of Restoration and ensure Elemental Attunement, Aura of Restoration and Elemental Lord are active.
  • To kill, use Phoenix when foes are in adjacent range, followed by Flame Burst, Flame Djinn's Haste and then Fireball for stragglers.
  • Rinse and Repeat for all groups and /resign when done.
  • Salvage any Shadowy Remains for more dust.

Feather Farming

  • Use Mindbender and Flame Djinn's Haste to have a permanent speed boost.
  • Use Elemental Attunement, Aura of Restoration and Elemental Lord before aggroing.
  • Walk towards a DarkFeather and ball the melee beside it.
  • Faceroll Phoenix, Flame Burst and Flame Djinn's Haste to kill any nearby Tengu, followed by Fireball for stragglers.
    • Note that DarkFeathers will die if in adjacent range when you use Phoenix alone.
    • The other Tengu will require either Flame Burst or Flame Djinn's Haste to finish them off.


  • Over Aggroing can kill you, so don't aggro more than 10 at a time to be on the safe side.
  • If the WiK Storyline prevents these spawns from appearing repeat the Graven Images quest outside of Lion's Arch to spawn nightmares (abandon it in town and retake it).
