This build enables rangers and casters to farm raptors in Hard Mode for Asura Points. It uses Mist Form to not take damage and Whirling Defense/mind block and Magnetic Aura to not get interrupted to be able to cast spells to damage and kill the raptor nestlings and Rekoff Broodmother outside of Rata Sum. This build is capable of clearing almost all the raptor nestlings, down to the last 3 or 4.
