<pvxbig> These can me optional variances

  • [[Crystal Wave@15] or [[Teinai's Crystals@15] can be interchanged as they are copies of each other.
  • [[Storm Djinn's Haste@5] can be a substitute for [[Mindbender] if you do not have the Asuran Rank, but it is not as efficient.
  • [[Mindbender] can be forfeit and both [[Crystal Wave] and [[Teinai's Crystals] used. Remember that you will loose your speed in running to Jaga Moraine and into the Vaettir mobs.
  • [[Mindbender] can also be exchanged for [[Intensity], but the effectiveness of [[Mindbender] is greater.



  • If not using Geomancer Insignias, use any max shield. This will reduce damage to zero. Preferably with a +10 vs. Earth Damage scrip.
  • For experienced farmers, it may be very helpful to bring along a 40/40 domination set to specifically cast the damage-dealing spells with. This can dramatically increase the damage dealt.



  • Slightly less common than the assassin build due to being slightly less forgiving of mistakes, but still very commonly seen during holiday events.


  • There seem to be a stacking problem with Mantra of Earth and Stoneflesh Aura, which can cause SA to not work. Try using MoE just before SA has been used. This should overcome the problem and leave you free to farm.
  • Energy is unlikely to be a problem, because you gain 2 energy per hit.
  • Using elemental damage is a poor choice because Vaettir have high armor against earth damage.
  • Spectral Vaettirs' attacks deal earth damage, causing Mantra of Earth to trigger.
  • If you switch one damage skill for Stone Striker, you can use this build to farm the first 2 groups of Snowmen in The Secret Lair Of The Snowmen.
  • At least 35-45 energy is required for maximum efficiency to cast all the enchantments before aggroing, if you don't mind waiting for energy regeneration.
