  • Equipment: 20/20 healing staff w/ +5 energy and +20 enchant, all energy armor mods.


  • Make sure to put Frozen Soil back up if it gets taken down.
  • On balanced, cast holy veil and healing breeze on yourself and stay in the back. Try to hide so the ranger can't snipe you from outside the entry chamber.
  • On IWAY wars, mesmers, and trappers, move back to the front and cast Spike Trap and Barbed trap again after frozen soil is up.
  • On Obsidian spiker Eles, keep your char in the back and let your heroes attack. The eles will attack your Spirit Of Brambles first.
  • Try to put Spike Trap and Barbed Trap a few inches apart to prevent Zaishen from "sneaking" in on one side of the door without cripple or KD.

How to use

  1. Disable fire attunement, meteor shower, and glyph(shift + click on the skill) on your heroes, so that you can cast it but they can't. Put heroes on "Guard" strategy.
  2. As soon as the countdown timer starts, flag your heroes at the back of the entry chamber.
  3. Immeditately cast brambles just inside the doorway to the left side.
  4. Cast spike trap to the left of the middle of the door, and barbed trap to the left.
  5. Back up about 2 inches and cast tripwire.
  6. Move back and cast Frozen Soil. Try to hide it, or put it out of the line of fire.
  7. When Frozen Soil is done, cast fire attunement on all heroes. The timer should be at about 10.
  8. When Zaishen are visible on the radar, cast glyph of lesser energy on all heroes.
  9. Target nearest Zaishen as they are entering aggro range.
  10. Cast meteor shower on one of your heroes. Then again. And again with your 3rd hero.
  11. Let the heroes auto attack.
  12. Call targets to keep your heroes from idling out.
