  • Sundering/Vampiric (pick preference), Ebon, and Zealous (not completely needed) Scythes of Fortitude (and 1 scythe of enchanting, not required).
  • Defensive set.
  • Survivor's Insignias with Vitae.


  • Maintain all of your buffs.
  • Spike (or pressure) with Wearying → Mystic → Eremite's.
  • Use Dash to attack kiting foes.


  • Anti-melee hexes.
  • Spirit Bond/Protective Spirit.
  • Kiting, to a degree
  • Enchantment removal.



  • Assassin's Remedy removes a condition before the attack hits. This means that conditions like weakness (from Wearying Strike) and blind (from anti-melee foes) are generally removed before the next hit.
  • Be sure to have anti-melee hexes taken off of you ASAP; they can cause a miss that will in turn cause Fox's Promise to end.
