  • Option 1: Arcane Echo will allow for killing of coldfires, terrorwebs, and mindblades more easily. Requires head piece with Divine Favor 1+3 so spell breaker can be chained indefinitely.
  • Option 2: Additional damage skill to speed up the killing if not planning on proceeding to planes/pools: Radiation Field, Pain Inverter, or Sympathetic Visage to drain enemy energy. This is not an extensive list, the options are too many to list here.
  • Option 3: for running on normal mode take a warrior secondary and Frenzy to induce higher damage from enemies that would not otherwise trigger spirit bond.


  • Lowest Level AL(such as starter armor) on all armor pieces.
  • Head piece with +1 divine favor and rune of minor divine favor.
  • Head piece with +1 divine favor and rune of superior divine favor.
  • Chest, hands, legs, and feet : rune of major protection prayers, rune of superior vigor, 2 runes of vitae.
  • All 5 armor pieces equipped with Survivor Insignias.
  • One hand weapon with 20% longer enchantment mod and +5 energy inscription.
  • Any protection or divine favor offhand with +45hp (while enchanted) mod.
  • High energy staff with 20% enchantment mod.
  • Using this exact gear you will have 806hp (with weapon/focus set) thus reaching 53 damage from holy wraith. If using other gear try to maintain at least 800hp to ensure maximum damage output and have 14 protection prayers to reach 7 seconds on Shield of Absorption.

General Usage

Underworld Map

Underworld Map

Chamber and Labyrinth

  • Take the quest "clear the chamber" from the lost soul.
  • After killing all the enemies in chamber the doors will open. Proceed to clear the enemies up to the terrorwebs in the Labyrinth.
  • When facing terrorwebs, maintain Spell Breaker as much as possible. While Spell Breaker is on you, only use SoA as their attacks will not trigger Spirit Bond or Protective Spirit. When Spell Breaker is about to run out be sure to cast and maintain Spirit Bond and Protective Spirit in addition to SoA until you are able to recast Spell Breaker.
  • After killing the 3 terrorwebs the Reaper of the Labyrinth will pop. Take only the quest "Restoring Grenth's Monuments." This will spawn 3 terrorwebs at all the monuments throughout the UW.
  • Video of clearing the chamber: Chamber - Labyrinth

The forgotten Vale

  • Head through the basement towards The forgotten vale. There are loads of pop ups on the way to the monument in vale so take it slow if unfamiliar with the area.
  • While facing Mindblades if Spell Breaker has run out cast Mantra of Resolve and maintain Spirit Bond.
  • Video of the path to Reaper in Forgotten vale: Labyrinth - Vale

Ice Wastes

Twin Serpent Mountains

  • Only head through mountains if you are going to chaos planes and pools. There is no reason to farm in the mountains as the enemies there do not drop ecto's aside from one or two patrolling skeletons.
  • When facing Charged Blackness wait until they exhaust themselves. Wait for them to kill themselves. They do use knock down so be careful to time your spells in between them using shock. Maintain Spell Breaker as much as possible.
  • When facing Obsidian Behemoths only use Protective Spirit and Spirit Bond.(Remember to cycle shooting them with staff to interrupt Healing Spring for a faster kill)
  • Using any personal consumable that increases your attack speed will allow you to interrupt Healing Spring more effectively.

Chaos Planes

Usage specific to Arcane Echo variant


  • Once Spell Breaker has ended when facing Coldfires they may use Maelstorm. Maintain Mantra of Resolve to prevent interruption and move out of the Maelstrom to prevent further energy loss.
  • If you see a huge mob, try to pull some of them. The 600 Monk can only endure 10 attacks over 60dmg in 2 seconds. If they extend over 10 attacks, then use Shield of Absorption and it will be fine. When using Shield of Absorption, cast Spirit Bond before use and then directly after.
  • Be aware that Bladed Attaxes and Grasping Darknesses can interrupt. Grasping Darknesses also use Fear Me! which drains energy.
  • If you see a Nightmare(pops from ground)(Out of Battle) and it strips your enchantments, immediately activate Protective Spirit and Spirit Bond. Then get out your Divine Favor or Protective Prayers wand/staff and keep firing until it dies.
  • Try to engage Skeletons of Dhuum with other enemies as their skills do not trigger spirit bond, but there normal attacks mostly do in HM.
  • If planning on heading to chaos planes and pools using the arcane echo variant will greatly increase survivability and quickness of completing these areas.
