Team Usage

  • The specific roles should be assigned before entering.
  • Every person should lay as many traps as possible.
  • Foe Specific tactics:
    • Against melee step back just behind your traps. The traps will kill them almost instantly.
    • Against casters (degeneration/OF Eles/mix) run to the back of the map just before they get to you and activate Troll Unguent. Often there will be stragglers, run up to them and trap them to death. Another suggestion is to run up a little bit and lay traps after the gates open when it's a caster group.

Counters

  • Opposing party is not completely effected by your traps. Possible to beat, but harder.
  • Lack of FS (Frozen Soil) that will keep the other party from resurrecting fallen members.
  • Mixed teams, possible but harder.

Variants

  • A Spirit Spammer Ritualist does well at defeating mixed and could look a bit like:

Notes

  • In this way you can get lots of Balthazar faction points very fast (each round will approximately grant you 360 faction and takes about 2 minutes).
  • From the Zaishen Elite you can only gain 6000 Balthazar Faction per day.
  • In Zaishen Challenge you can only earn 2,000 Balthazar faction per day. Faction earned here will also count against the Zaishen Elite cap.
  • It is not uncommon to die when up against groups of 8 OF eles, or a mixed group.
  • Duo nuker can handle mixed group much more effectively
