  • Blessed armor is preferred for the extra 10 armor.
  • Sundering Flatbow 15^Enchanted of Enchanting.
  • Fiery Flatbow 15^Enchanted of Enchanting.
  • A defensive shield set for the run.


  • First run to the forest using Drunken Master whilst drunk for a maintainable 25-33% speed boost.
  • Then cast your enchantments, and aggro the first group of Spirit Shepherd.
  • Now spam Barrage until they are dead, making sure to watch your enchantments.
  • To kill a Spirit Wood, you'll need to use your interrupt to stop it from using Troll Unguent.
  • Armored Cave Spiders will use Healing Spring as soon as they pop up. Interrupt that with a regular attack, and then follow that with your interrupt to prevent them from using Apply Poison. It isn't imperative that you interrupt this preparation, though, since you'll still have enough health regeneration to counteract it.
  • To kill a group of Rock Borer Worms, you need to get just within earshot (but you should still be outside of their attack range), and spam Barrage until they die.


  • Getting killed on the way to the Forest.
  • Not knowing the area very well.
  • Failing to use the correct skills.
