Tips

  • Knowing when to take shrines is very important, each route will go more in to detail. Every shrine other than the first can be taken after the run is completed, however you might waste some points on getting rank ups and bonuses. An explanation of how the shrines and bounties work can be found HERE.
    • If you choose to wait until after to get all the shrines, still look out for Vaettir spawns.
  • All Vaettir spawns should try and be avoided. See map below for more details.
  • The Path to Revelations quest should be active for more reputation per run, however if nobody in the team has it active, wait until everyone is together at the end to fight Nifling.
  • If Jormungand spawns somewhere in the map, wait for the whole team to be together to fight it. However, it is super rare and probably will never be an issue.
  • Over where all of the routes end, where Nifling or The Path to Revelations is, the whole area spawns Smoke Phantoms one at a time so be prepared if you choose to go in.
  • The Ele Imp Boss will not spawn unless all other Imps in the map have been slain. (See Lake Solo for more details).
  • The Dervish Minotaur Boss maybe patrol all the way into the Modniir area. He will die on his own if you do not engage him there. (See Berserk Duo, Modniir Team, and Lake Solo for more details).
  • All party members need to have completed "Vision of the Raven Spirit" quest or there will be a lot fewer foes.

Vaettir Spawn Map

Vaettir Pop Fells.jpg

  • Yellow stars show groups that will always spawn if you walk into agro range.
  • Orange stars show that anywhere in a large area around them, 1 Vaettir has a random and really low chance to spawn. Usually 1 every 5 runs might spawn. It is only one so you can kill it and focus it first.

    • Before spiking a ball, cast Channeling Channeling for energy during the spike.
    • To spike, cast Arcane Echo Arcane Echo and Wastrel's Demise Wastrel's Demise on as many targets as quickly as possible as you can by using the tab key.

  • Route and map:
    • Ice Lake Solo 1.jpg
      Run down and grab the pink shrine and make your way to the south lake. Make sure to look at the vaettir spawn map so you do not pop any vaettir when grabbing imps. If you do pop any vaettir along your way leave them for the berserk duo. The will be a patrolling group of minotaurs on the south side of the lake. Make sure to not grab them or you will die. To ball ice imps and elementals together, you must first ball the ice imps, then pull the elementals into them. Elementals have half the attack range ice imps do. Once the imps are balled just run through them and watch closely as the elementals pull into them. Make your way around the lake counter clock wise to avoid the vaettir spawns on the west side. Once you get all the way around grab the green shrine if safe, kill the frozen elementals there, and make sure any imps fighting modniir die before heading to the north lake. Ignore any modniir you might encounter. Once you get to the north lake start balling the imps and elementals and make your way north. Make sure to kill the small group of imps at the top of the lake by the yellow shrine. If you miss any imps the boss will not spawn. Go ahead and grab the yellow shrine and make your way to the purple shrine. By the time you grab the purple shrine there should only be one group of imps left in the corner by the cave. Grab them and pull them out because where you intially grab them is where the boss spawn is and you do not want to aggro him yet. Once you kill the small group the boss group will spawn (if he does not then you missed an imp somewhere around one of the lakes), ignore him and go into the cave. Grab everything in the cave in one pull and spike it. You can then grab the orange shrine and head back to the boss group and kill it. Then you are done. You can go help other teams or grab any of the blue shrines left or ones you did not grab before. Asterius may patrol all the way over to the green shrine, if you see him, do not engage him, he will die on his own and will kill you if you agro him.

Berserk Duo

Tank

Template code

Equipment

  • Weapons
    • Martial weapon with +5e and 20% enchant, and a shield with +45 health while enchanted and +10 armor vs earth damage.
  • Armor
    • Armor should have +3 +1 shadow head piece with a +50 health on chest and the rest runes of energy +2 and all pieces with blessed insignias.
  • Pcons
    • Do not use cupcake or agro will break really easily.
    • It is helpful to use candy apple for the extra health but nothing is needed.

Guide

  • Skill Usage
    • After you ball, walk backwards towards the VoS, ping the closest enemy infront of you, cast standard, ping a target, and cast GDW on the derv as they EE to you. Never ping an Aurochs because they have heals. Depending on which mesmer spawns at the end in the Jotun cave, use standard and dagger it down before the VoS spikes. The Bladeturners need to be daggered only. After clearing all of the Minotaur area head over to the lake near the first shrine and follow the path the Lakes Solo took and kill the one group of patrolling Minotaur and all of the Ice elementals and griffons on the hill.

Equipment

  • Q9 Scythe with 15% damage while enchanted, vampiric or zealous, and 20% enchant.
  • Armor should have +3 +1 earth prayers head piece with a +50 health on chest and +1 scythe on some piece, and the rest runes of energy +2. All pieces should have windwalker insignias.

Usage

  • Follow the tank, when he pings, pre cast your enchants and then cast your hex on the pinged target at max cast range, then EE in to him and eremites the targeted enemy. After you kill everything in the area head towards the other part of the lake where the first shrine is and head east to the griffon hill. Watch for vaettir spawns, as some might be popped by enemies automatically before even getting there. Kill the one group of Minotour and then kill the Griffons and Ice elementals on the hill.

Routes

Berserk Pt One.jpg Berserk Pt Two.jpg

  • Different color dots mean different things
    • Yellow dots show Vaettir Spawns, which you should avoid at all costs unless your team chooses to pop for shrines.
    • Pink dot is first shrine to grab.
    • Green dot is second shrine to grab.
    • Blue/Purple dot is third or fourth shrine, up to you. Quickest to grab purple first when killing imps over there if you choose to grab it at all during the run.
      • Purple dot will spawn vaettir so if you choose to get it, be prepared.
    • Orange is last shrine and will most likely spawn vaettir getting to it. Always optional.
  • Shrines can be taken in any order after the first only if the team is okay with adding more time, if you can run and take them yourself after the run that way nobody has to wait on you.

Equipment

  • daggers with zealous, +5 energy with attribute +1 20% chance.
  • Armor should have +3 +1 dagger head piece, +3 crit, +50hp, the rest energy +2 and all pieces with blessed insignias.

Usage

  • Run and kill all the Modniir groups, keep IAU up on cool down, use asura scan on the warriors and elementals. Make sure if the monks get weird aggro to focus on protecting them. If vaettirs pop focus them first. After all of the Modniirs are killed make your way to the griffons in the back corner. Do not over aggro griffons.
