  • Vital Blessing
  • Strength of Honor (For killing left-overs.)
  • Heal Party
  • Mindbender (For quicker placement of bonds.)


  • Max energy armor
  • High energy staff


  • Lay all of your bonds on the tank and then cast balthazar's spirit on yourself.
  • When the tank pings come into spirit range of the mob and lay down EoE.
  • Pick up loots.


In Hard mode finding proper placement for the spirit is key due to melee scatter.


PvE Skills were left out of the bonder because a hero can run the bar just fine.
