Notes For the Whole Team

  • Keep up with the rest of team in 1 aggro bubble at the tail of the A/P tank, but do not run in front the tank, or you will aggro/pop wolves too quick and cause body block for the rest of the team.
  • A Birthday Cupcake is an obligation. When it happens that 1 of the gates close in front of you, while wolves just pop up. You need the extra movement speed so the wolves almost instantly stop follow you and turn back to their spawn-point. Just keep moving away from them until the gate open again, and proceed with the run.
  • Use "I Am Unstoppable!" VS Knocked-Down and the Crippling effect. Use it on recharge, specially at the start of the run.
  • Use Ebon Escape and Return to the A/P Tank as much as possible to keep up. But you have to be smart about it, so both skills are not on recharge at moments you really need it. Some parts you must use it, to jump pass a group Hopping Vampire or wolves that pop up. or make it in time, pass a gate that is about to close.
  • Use Echo or Arcane Echo to copy your Ebon Escape specially at the fire dart bridge. Everyone must use Ebon Escape or the combo with Return, so your not get stuck at that part. You won't see that you are stuck and will be too late to notice. So use your step skills no matter what (total 4x at the bridge)
  • Keep in mind that Ebon Escape heals other people.
  • By the wardens room 8, the tank will ball up the Burning Brush and Brooding Thorns at the Guardian Serpent. When they are balled up the warriors kill them.
  • After the Guardian Serpent is killed, the door will open to room 9. The tank will go SOLO in to that room, to pull the wardens away. That way the team can get a safe passage. The rest of the team has to pay attention to not steal aggro from the tank. If you do so, it is most likely the end of the run.
  • In the meanwhile the tank is pulling the Wardens away, the team stay up that stair and enjoy the seed healing, which keeps the team alive very easy. If the team gets attacked by another group of the Burning Brush, Brooding Thorns, just kill them. Don't be an idiot and run in some sort rush/panic mode in to Wardens room 9, and steal aggro from the tank. Pay attention to your compass and don't steal aggro from the tank here!!

AP (Tank)

Equipment

Usage

  • The purpose of the A/P Tank: To lead the team through Urgoz. Use vipers to jump up and down bridges and tank away the Wardens and the Wolves. With this tactics, the rest of the team can run pass, and only kill the foes that have to be killed to be abble to proseed the run.
  • At the fire dart bridge in room four, you have to be sure that the characters with echo in their build had time enough to cast it, so they get a copy of Ebon Escape in order to jump pass the popping wolves.
  • On the bridge, it can be better to not use Dash. So you stay in range for the people in the back who are a bit slower with clicking on Ebon Escape. You can make a tiny stop after you passed a group wolves that popped up (before you pop the next group wolves), to give people in the back slightly more time to click on Ebon Escape. Tough this will cause a failure when people start run in front of you, and pop up the next group wolves and most likely make you getting stuck between two groups of wolves.
  • Don't rush ahead when you see people in the back can't keep up. There are plenty spots you can make a short stop, to give people in the back time to keep up, or to get resurrected. The run will only be slower or even total fail when you keep rushing ahead.
  • Specially with the use of Dash it is possible to rush pass three gates, witch are open fifteen seconds, and closed ten seconds. You have to start running as soon the gate open up, or you won't make it pass the third gate. Make a pray that people keep up with you.

Equipment

Usage

  • Don't run with a staff, but use your shield melee weapon set. If you run with a Staff the Wolves will hex you with Shroud of Silence and you won't be able to keep up with Ebon Escape.
  • Don't ever run in front of the tank
  • Put Life Bond on the Tank as soon as possible. So that the Seeder can Seed you, to provide a party wide healing as soon the tank or you/Bonder receive damage.
  • Use Death's Charge to jump fast to the Guardian Serpents, to put up Ebon Battle Standard of Honor. Than the 100b Warriors can Ebon Escape to you and spike in a Ebon Battle Standard of Honor ward
  • When you arrive at room 8 (the Wardens Area), you need to maintain your Shadow Form to prevent that your Life Bond or Seed of Life not get removed. Room 8, 9 and 10 are the main reason why you have Shadow Form in your build.
  • Stay in compass range with the tank, without stealing his aggro. So the tank not get Recall out wile he is tanking and or lose his Bond which provide strong Seed healing for the team.
  • At Urgoz, cast your Ebon Battle Standard of Honor ward at his feet. Help the warriors hitting Urgoz with your daggers . You can drop your enchants since Shadow Form has no effect at Urgoz. Urgoz removes it with Forest's Binding and so it can make you a priority target.

Variants

  • Recall Recall instead of Shroud of Distress Shroud of Distress .
  • Recall Recall when you have a full team. This is to prevent popping 200 foes at room 7 after the whole team cross that bridge. 1 person with Recall Recall has to stay back to prevent this from happening.

  • Use Heal Party if the team needs healing and your Seed is still on Rercharge.
  • Use Essence Bond on the tank, so you don't get any energy isues wile spam Heal Party or Seed of Life

  • Use a Zealous Sword for energy gain at Urgoz. so you can keep up "I Am Unstoppable!".
  • At Urgoz, you have to ball up with the other warriors on Urgoz his feet. This is so the Explosive Growth pop up, al at the same point and can be killed with Mark of Pain and splinter weapon.

Usage

  • Use Barbs And Dark Fury on the Guardian Serpents.
  • In room 10 (the Greater Blood Drinker/trapped room) use Ebon Battle Standard of Honor on the next pop-up Greater Blood Drinkers as soon the first group is killed. Try to line this up with the A/Mo bonder so there is always a Ebon Battle Standard of Honor ward for the warriors to spike in.
  • Use Mark of Pain on groups and Barbs on the "off damage" single targets. Use Dark Fury and Order of Pain whenever you can. However, be aware that This enchants can trick Strip Enchantment from the Greater Blood Drinker and hurt your team members.
  • Copy your Mark of Pain to kill the last guardian Serpent at the entrance to Urgoz. This way you help with killing the Burning Brush, Brooding Thorns and Uprooted Malice. This is helpful so the warriors not get killed at Urgoz cause of them.
  • On Urgoz the most important skill you use is Mark of Pain. If you don't use it, the Warriors will die because of the Explosive Growth. Which will explode within six seconds, after they spawned. So the combination Hundred Blades, Mark of Pain and Splinter Weapon must have killed them, before they explode. This way the Explosive Growth won't do any damage.
  • After Mark of Pain use Barbs, Dark Fury and Order of Pain. Urgoz should die within fifteen seconds.
