  • Armor

Radiant Armor is recommended for this build. Use a Geomancers Aura with a Superior Rune of Earth Magic for running, and then a Pyromancers Aura with a Superior rune of Fire Magic for killing.

  • Weapons

Something with an enchanting mod is essential, a totem axe itself is a good start! A fire wand and offhand both with 20% chace of halving recharge times may be useful.


Starting the run at Ventari's Refuge, head out to . Equip your Earth magic headgear. Cast Glyph of Elemental Power before casting Stoneflesh Aura, Flame Djinn's Haste ad Sliver Armor. Run towards the portal to . Recast your enchantments as they expire, (as long as they are recharged!

Take the South Eastern path through . Once again, cast skills 1-4 in that order, keep running and recast echantments as necessary. Stoneflesh Aura negates just about all the damage in this area. Head into The Falls.

  • The Falls

The beginning part of this area is probably the hardest. Sliver Armor is very useful here, not for dealing damage, but for the 50% chance to lock attacks. This helps you avoid some of the poison and crippling attacks from the Maguuma spiders, although it is unlikely you will get through the area without engaging some of the conditions. When you lose aggro, cast troll unguent, regen, and then cotinue. Once you get out of the spiders, and sight your first trolls, things become easier.

From here on in, you will find the following groups of monsters. Below each group you will find the best method for dealing with them.

  • Jungle Skale

GoEP - Obs Flesh - Sliver Armor - Immolate - FDH

  • Jungle Trolls


  • Life Pods

Separate into no more tha groups of two. GoEP - FDH - Immolate.

  • Root behemoths

GoEP - nuke - SFA - immolate

  • Wind Riders
