Well discuss build here, leave any comments maybe variants or whatever. Build works, ive tried it so yeah. Try it out. Gogogo Ele sword overfarm!!! :P Rizbiz 04:37, 30 October 2007 (CET)

Nice, not a great deal different from the UW farmer so maybe a merge perhaps? UnrealHavocSigUnreal Havoc 04:38, 30 October 2007 (CET)

Actually, my first inspiration was A/E Gloom farmer since i do that too. Im not too into solo UW farmin with A/E. And im fine with a merge if thats what yall decide :) Rizbiz 04:40, 30 October 2007 (CET)

Well I guess that's up to the community though seems we have a fair few of these now and all fairly similar with similar concepts in mind, something along those lines probably would be a good idea. UnrealHavocSigUnreal Havoc 04:41, 30 October 2007 (CET)

I do this with 42 energy haha.Beast194Sig Beast194 20:10, 30 October 2007 (CET)
Well the lowest ive tried was 50 something but i just put in 60 to be safe. cause sometimes i cast the wrong spell or i cast MS without glyph of sac so i gotta redo. Im sure it works with 42. :) Glad it works for someone other than me :)) Rizbiz 20:24, 30 October 2007 (CET)

Plz expalin how can u have 60 energy with assassin? The highest i had was 25(base energy)+8 from radiant runes+12 from earth scroll+5from Totem Axe=50. U can switch to 15 energy +1 regen scroll, but thats still only 53.ChaosStein Aside from that i like the build very much, and im going to test it now :)

Well, I get 52 energy (37 energy with daggers equipped) with just a normal Insightful Staff of Fortitude running three runes on my radiant armour (Deadly, Shadow, Vigor) when I'm just running it as a standard Caster Spiker, if you add a +5 energy inscription to yor staff that gives you 57. Minus one of the runes from what I use to get equal to what the user suggests rune wise etc that would give you 59 energy. Don't forget you can add Radiant Insignias to all parts of your armour. Various Wand & Offhand combos can greatly increase your total energy if done right. I've had 61 energy on my Assassin before when I made it into an Air Magic Spiker, but I can't remember exactly how I did it. Might have been a bug, I dunno, lol. Assassin-icon-smallUnrealHavocSigUnreal Havoc 12:50, 1 November 2007 (CET)
I had asuran rank 4 i think so thats +8e, and then my focus was +12 (r9 fire) and 15/-1 so...i could end up with around 73 energy :) Rizbiz 20:03, 1 November 2007 (CET)
I can get up to 80 energy on my sin, muhahaha! :P --Arthas 01:33, 19 November 2007 (CET)
I currently have 93 energy on my sin... :) --JIpock 09:40, December 7, 2007 (CET)

It doesnt matter, since it runs PERFECTLY with 50 energy xD.I tested it today, with 50 energy and it runs flawleslly.Great build, thank you soo much!ChaosStein

What do you do about Disrupting Stab? If i don't have SF up before i get into a group, seems like there is no way that I can get SF off without it being disrupted so I am unable to pull in big groups at one time..... Also is there any way to handle brood mother? Ravskau 00:00, 5 November 2007 (CET)

Well, if u watch my video, i use the flame djinn's speed buff of 33% to outrun their 25% so they(non boss groups) are a little behind and right before i aggro broodmother's group, i cast deadly paradox and then as SOON as i aggro and it says (Defeat <insert boss name>) i cast shadow form as neither of the groups should be that close to me and the .66 cast time if shadow form is enough time. You can use the a/e sliver boss farmer to kill broodmother sperately if you wish Rizbiz 21:06, 5 November 2007 (CET)

I have watched your video...Just seems if I can see a red dot on my radar...anywhere on my radar, they beat my shadow form....wonderin what I am missing? Ravskau 01:30, 8 November 2007 (CET)

I dont understand what you are trying to say? you always get ur SF interrupted? Rizbiz 04:15, 8 November 2007 (CET)

When ur about to aggro the Boss, hit Paradox, aggro her then IMIDEATLY use Shadow Form.Ull be ok ;) ChaosStein

Wouldnt Lava Font be better then Fire Storm ? Kiray

I've started to have problems with holding aggro so I've gone with the idea of 2 runs and the changing the build.

I would love to see the build. but i wouldnt think the damage output would be better.[EDIT] Please dont even say that its based on Sliver Armor. That is slower than anything Rizbiz 22:09, 6 November 2007 (CET)
wot is wrong with sliver? its meant to kill the boss:
Shadow Form Sliver Armor Teinai&#039;s Crystals Stone Daggers Optional Optional Optional Optional
picked it up off guru a while ago. idk how its supposes to work, or anything. i just though you guys might wanna see it.Darksig 15:39, 7 November 2007 (CET)
Absolutely nothing wrong with sliver armor, yet for the cave, it is absolutely "phail" and will not kill more than 10 or 15 (havent tried so dont judge) but it absolutely wont kill all. I love farming bosses with sliver a/e but it just doesnt work here. 21:25, 7 November 2007 (CET)
your right, but here was the concept: you sliver the boss, after first casting teinai's. that way, boss goes down, sliver is up for long enough to own the rest(mor boost), and you'll be able to tenainai's again.Darksig 17:58, 8 November 2007 (CET)
Maybe so, but this might need to be an ele with more energy. not sure though. I like my build, and it works :) Rizbiz 18:49, 8 November 2007 (CET)

If this is any use to anyone, I believe I've perfected the earth A/E build.

Glyph of Elemental Power Shadow Form Ward Against Foes Sliver Armor Intensity Ebon Battle Standard of Honor Dash Shadow of Haste

I killed 29 raptors including the boss somewhere between 2:00 and 2:59 on my first try, 31 the second try. The spells need to be cast in that order. I usually do the run in two different pulls, first getting the S/E patrol, then going in and aggroing everything except three to five others. I use Galigord's Stone Scroll and a +5e 20% enchanting weapon. 21:35, 2 December 2007 (CET)

well, well... if this build is applied properly, you can kill all monsters except for the boss in under a minute. just aggro them all, then waste them. Hoschi 18:52, 6 December 2007 (CET)

Deadly Paradox nerf

Now fifteen energy. Still viable? -- 03:31, 30 November 2007 (CET)

You can stil do the farm with attunement and if you got more than ~77-78 energy it should be possible with intensity (i'm just about getting r9 asura and then can test it)
Yeah, i would say if u got an ele, get him/her there instead and farm it like that. Should be easier. i was kinda pissed that they nerfed it also Rizbiz 22:06, 30 November 2007 (CET)
So, only the E/A version works? -- 22:08, 30 November 2007 (CET)
matter of timing. DA lasts 7 seconds, if you time it perfectly you can hit sf at 6s, but let's assume you wait 5s. that gets you 4/3*5 =~7 energy, so in total this build requires 8 more energy than prenerf. is that sufficient? - Y0_ich_halt 22:16, 30 November 2007 (CET)
Yeah, i think its doable with about 80nrg. but use the fire attunement variant instead then. since that will work for a long time until they nerf SF. so just level your title to about 7 or 8 and u should be able to use inferno with no trouble. Rizbiz 05:33, 1 December 2007 (CET)
Now tested it with r9 asura. I got 78 energy as an assassin and if I use DP 4 seconds before SF I'm able to do the whole chain (i'm using intensity in the place of optional skill (got r10 sunspear))
I am able to do it with Attunement with only 67 energy total (Thats including Asura Title r6 + Mind Clouder)EoD Itzl 08:17, 2 December 2007 (CET)

Im doing it with 61 energy.Works perfectly ChaosStein

try a dual run

well since solo in hm is affected by drop scale,take a dual partner,especially a boss farmer since the mob farmer cant kill rekoff-killing rekoff gives her drops and the damage reduction the nestlings recieve from her will be gone. have the boss farmer run in and kill rekoff then die after killing what they can,then the mob farmer comes in for a clearing and afterward die so u can both pick up drops,i actually recieve more and better drops this way than solo

Sounds like a good plan. The drops solo really kind of suck. 07:43, 30 January 2008 (EST)

Have they killed it

Is it just me noticing a distinct change in droprate of golds from raptors after the 6/12 update? --Arthas 13:21, 7 December 2007 (CET)

shouldn't farm those for gold and stuff. go for them for events instead :) - Y0_ich_halt 14:00, 7 December 2007 (CET)
Ya i think the drop rates did change-im seeing an average of 100-300 runs for one ele sword drop, occasional lucky or unlucky people....but i think anet implemented a drop reduction to preserve ele sword value, ty anet XD finally they will be worth something again
I have seen the reduction in Drops as well. Right now I'm only trying to get Ales, but there HAVE been a nerf drop-wise. I did got an elemental sword after it though.

build sucks. hard.

runX: inturrupted. x=1-150. why diddnt someone realize the stupidity of a caster build to farm these without inturuption defense?

Seems you are the only one who can't manage to cast Shadow Form wihout being interrupted. Simply activate Deadly Paradox first then hit Shadow Form while still running. Is it that hard to understand really? To u maybe. Btw, sign your comments please. --Arthas 14:31, 8 December 2007 (CET)
btw no account here. and, i do activate DP while runing. however, with the number of raptors in the cave theres allways one of them near enough to get to me and spamm disrupting dagger once i stop. -
Then you're doing it wrong. — Skakid9090 19:24, 8 December 2007 (CET)
It's as simple as that: You are doing it the wrong way. If this build doesn't work, explain to me how the hell i have been able to do more than 1,000 succesfull runs with this build? --Arthas 01:03, 10 December 2007 (CET)
I had a similar problem. I found my issue was running incorrectly. There are three main groups of raptors. One stays near the Broodmother, and the other two move around quite a bit. I wait for the group furtherest away from the brood mother to come close to the enterance, and then activate my Flame Djinn's Haste. By then , that group is following me and the second group is running towards the third group. This works nearly 95% of the time for me. Try this out and let us know if it helps.. The build doesn't suck, it takes a little practice. Jipock 16:22, 10 December 2007 (CET)

Equipment Location

As a way to help everyone to get the maximum amount of energy, here are two places to help you out.

1) Onkk in Bogroot Growths can provide a Fire Wand (Req 9) with +15 Energy / -1 Energy Regen for 5 Beetle Eggs. Onkk is located on the first level of the dungeon, but the eggs are dropped mid-way through level two by the beetles.

2) Jung Zeng who is located in the Shenzun Tunnels right outside of Maatu Keep has a +12 Energy / + 15 Energy / -1 Energy Regen Flame Artiface to trade for 5 Jade Bracelets. Jade Bracelets are a dime-a-dozen and is easy to trade for.

These two items, by themselves, can give you +42 Energy, in addition to your runes and Insignias. Combined with your Asuran Title, this can reach close to 100 Energy. Currenly, at level 6, I have 94 Energy on my build. Jipock 16:17, 10 December 2007 (CET)

Why use more energy than what is needed? Don't really see the point. An on the other hand, a Totem Axe is much more efficient than a fire wand because of the enchantment mod. --Arthas 23:40, 10 December 2007 (CET)
Because of bragging rights!!!! Seriously, I find it more comfortable to have tons of energy. I got burned a few times forgetting to use the Fire Attunement. With 94 energy, I no longer worry about energy management.. To each their own.. Congrats on the build, though. We really appreciate it!! Jipock 15:56, 11 December 2007 (CET)
94 energy is overkill, unless you're using my variant, which consumes 109 :) ICYFIFTYFIVE 20:26, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Air of Superiority

Been testing this skill a few times now and it works GREAT! I really recommend using it. 30 Raptors will guarantee a recharge of all skills and will heal to 100% health. Its much better than Inferno. --Arthas 23:25, 12 December 2007 (CET)

I tried this out, but didn't find much benefit.. I guess it is because I'm just killing raptor nestlings. What is it that AOS is trying to bring you? Recharge of health / spells? It would be great if it added more Asura points to you. However, I find inferno kills them much more quickly, and thus, lets me do the run faster. Your Mileage May Vary... (YMMV) Jipock 15:35, 14 December 2007 (CET)
Its simple. Say you get 4 gold drops in one run and you see Shadow Form start blinking and get killed before you picked them all up. If you use AoS and recharge all skills, you can reactivate Shadow Form and pick up the loot without problem and thus saves ALOT of time since you don't have to get ressed and go back and pick it all up. Speaking of Inferno, it SUCKS. Inferno kill drops (not going to bother explain why, its just fact). Also, if you see a Locked Chest and have a lockpick in inventory, you can simple recast Shadow Form and go and get the Chest. --Arthas 01:53, 15 December 2007 (CET)
Thanks for the info... I'd love to hear more about Inferno and why it kills drops.. If you can't explain it, can you point me in the right direction to find out? I don't doubt you, I just want to learn more.. Thanks again for the build... I love it, and I have you to thank for all my gold drops and my 2 Elemental Swords.. Jipock 13:31, 21 December 2007 (EST)

Glyph of Concentration

you really don't need deadly paradox, if you die you can be patient enough wait for Shadow form to recarge get back there and get it, its not really that much time, so i would take Glyph of Concentration that will stop them interupting your shadow form. Actually thats what i do, much easier.

Does not work for me

Maybe it's just me, whenever any raptor gets to about 10% health they break agro. Plus, on the rare chances that i can kill the lot, i get 1-2 drops, and that's thanks to the glitch in loot scaling. worst farming place for me, but there are others. Thanks for sharing it with us though. cheers

Dont know what to tell u man, worked for the other 10,000 people that farm it...Rizbiz 01:57, 24 December 2007 (EST)

Patient my friend^^Drops usually sucks, but i got atleast one gold every 2nd, 3rd run,i don't count few ele swords i got,and about aggro issue i don't know what do tell you,you must be doing something wrong, waiting to long to cast..don't know, but build does work.

SAME HERE! for some reason they run away when they get to 10%


I have in the last 10 runs gotten 1 ,purple, 1 red, 1green and 2 blacks.. can anyone confirm the drop rates of dyes here?

Confirmed. Dye drops everywhere. HM dye drop rates seem higher than NM. Any solo HM run seems to yield good dye drops. -- 16:11, 25 March 2008 (EDT)
Because Dye is exempt from loot scaling, and you're killing 33 enemies every minute. ICYFIFTYFIVE 20:22, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

  • Then use flame djinn's haste and agro the mobs.
  • Wait till the next mist form.
  • Then cast the spells.

mist form doesn't protect from spells, so it's not really great... - Y0_ich_halt 14:50, 8 January 2008 (EST)
There are no spell-casters in that cave, all there is are assassins.--ChrisRodrigues 14:12, 19 January 2008 (EST)
This was my very beta of this build when i thought of it to have Mist form. However. Disrupting slab somehow goes through mist form. My idea is that although mistform protects you from damage, it doesnt protect from any effects that the attack might do, such if you were to be hit with eviscerate, u would still suffer from deep wound. (I know my sig thing doesnt work. too lazy to fix it) Rizbiz 16:59, 24 January 2008 (EST)

I think i might have Un-nerfed it! Switch Flame Djinns haste for shadow of haste,and youll keep at high health because of the half damage!

Shadow Of Haste - ...Half damage? also is 15% Speed Buff.. I think you mean Dark Escape. 06:59, 13 March 2008 (EDT)
Also, I've found siphon speed is alright, if you dont have high asura rank. Drop one SA, put it in DA, and have a +1 rune. Works good for me. 07:10, 13 March 2008 (EDT)

Rubber Banding

In all honesty, I think that "Counter" is redundant. I'd say irrelevant, but it can happen. However, the number ONE thing you should know whenever you're running through enemies, or just running in general, is DO NOT STRAFE! I've tested this countless times, and I've seen many Droks runner fail because they strafe.. Although you see your character moving in a diagonal line, when you strafe you're actually moving in a straight line. For example, Walking forward and strafing to the right means you're walking let's say 2 paces forward, one right, 2 forward, and so on. The reason people get stuck and "rubber band" is because in between that "2 forward, one right...", they were caught, and although they still think they're moving, they get stuck. Thus, I think that note is extraneous and should be removed. --ChrisRodrigues 13:40, 22 March 2008 (EDT)

Agreed, but I don't wanna remove it just yet, wait for some more feedback. ICYFIFTYFIVE 20:19, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Big rewrite

I rewrote the whole thing, since it still had reference to skills no longer on the bar like Deadly Paradox, and often repeated or contradicted itself (probably due to multiple people editing). I removed the (now unneeded) Deadly Arts attribute, added back Fire Attunement (So you don't need a nuclear generator worth of energy), added Phoenix (may be controversial, however if you cast the chain without any weird delay the raptors will get knocked down by a meteor when you're casting it and won't escape. The damage will be high enough to kill them JUST as they want to start escaping the AoE, and all the drops will be close). Any questions? Objections? Poki 20:40, 24 March 2008 (EDT)

Videos and their descriptions

OK, I don't want to revert that again soo... I think everyone knows that YouTube doesn't have the best quality in the world. Apparently, they're trying to fix that because a lot of newly uploaded videos also have a high quality version, but that's beside the point. Writing the website name is a bit pointless because the link also has it. Are people clicking links without looking at them? Pity. Great for beginners? Not really, because: a) Normal Mode (I'm going to say it: This build doesn't work in normal mode.) b) He's using the post-nerf FDH c) He's loosing aggro like mad d) Intentional death? e) Using Shadow Form like that (raptors will interrupt you and you'll be dead. Great for a beginner!) f) Using deadly paradox and thinking it will make Shadow Form recharge faster after he used it. (lol) I think that's most of the flaws in that video.

Type of damage

Do the nestlings deal piercing or slashing damage? 09:29, 5 April 2008 (EDT)

What works for me

Glyph of Sacrifice Shadow Form Glyph of Elemental Power Meteor Shower Intensity Lava Font Frozen Burst Flame Burst

-GoS makes sure SF gets throu the interrupts and FAST

-GoLE for damage

-Meteor Shower becouse it has high-damage per wave and will couple with..

-Intensity, it will finish casting RIGHT before the first wave of Meteor Shower, doing the increased % damage.

-Lava Font for the same reason as Meteor Shower, also, becouse it's adjacent and they will still be adjecent

-Frozen Burst, if you managed to get the spells off fast, by the time you cast this, they should start running, or should have barely started running

-Flame Burst, becouse by now, they are NOT near you, they are "nearby" thus in the area for this spell to kick in

By now if evreythign went right, all the raptors you aggroed should be loot-sprinklers. If you still have energy, you can try another Lava Font now to be sure you get whatever is left that escaped the frozen burst or came back late.

With a bit of luck and nice aggroing, you chould actually survive the Shadow Form drop :)--Cosmo 16:32, 4 May 2008 (EDT)
