This build has been designed for the following use:

Dealing high holy damage with a scythe to undead while the bonders keep you alive. This build can effectively solo CoF with 3 hero bonders in HM.


  • 1 Ranger-icon-small/Dervish-icon-small VoS Scythe (Human)
  • 1 smite bonder (hero)
  • 1 spell breaker bonder (hero)
  • 1 eoe barrier bonder (hero)

VoS Scythe

<pvxbig> [build prof=Ranger/Dervish Expertise=10+1+3 Scythe_Mastery=11 Earth_prayers=10][Dwarven Stability][Whirling Defense][Lightning Reflexes][Mystic Sweep][Eremite's Attack][Vow of Strength][Aura of Holy Might][Mystic Regeneration][/build] </pvxbig>


  • Attunement/radiant armor
  • Zealous, sundering and vampiric scythe of enchanting with ^15 while enchanted inscription
  • Scythe of charslaying (you can craft one in EoTN)
  • Extra Armor with additional superior runes to lower the damage you take (optional).


  • Have the bonders cast their maintained enchantments on you. Before engaging in battle, have the heroes cast Spell Breaker, Shield of Judgment and Edge of Extinction (if possible). Keep Vow of Strength and Aura of Holy Might up. Use Mystic Regeneration as a healing skill and to negate degeneration.
  • Use Lightning Reflexes for an attack speed boost. Use Whirling Defense to add more damage and to help trigger Edge of Extinction. Blocking also helps to avoid life stealing from the Pain spirits.
  • When facing Restless Spirit warriors, use SoJ and kill them before you use stances because they will use Wild Blow. When dealing with Enchanted Daggers, do the same. Once these are dead, you can use stances.


  • Wild Blow (Restless Spirit (warrior))
  • Wild Strike (Enchanted daggers)
  • Blinding Flash (Shock Phantom)
  • Gaze from Beyond (Ash Phantom)
  • Shatter Enchantment (Charr Dominators)
