==Usage==
+
== Usage ==
Cast Mending or Live Vicariously and wait for your Energy to recover to full, then cast the other one. Simply run into the pack of monsters you're farming off of, and when enough of them are surrounding you, use Dolyak Signet, and Cyclone Axe. When Bonetti's Defense is charged up, activate it. Your energy should spike to full. Then, activate Gladiator's Defense, Healing Breeze and Healing Signet, followed up by another Cyclone Axe. Now, pay close attention to your Gladiator's Defense icon, and activate Bonetti's Defense (which should be recharged by now). From now on, rotate between Gladiator's Defense and Bonetti's, while using Cyclone Axe to trigger Live Vicariously over a large scale to regain health. Cast Healing Breeze to further increase health regeneration. Use healing signet to recover large amounts of health, but it should only be used when Dolyak Signet is active. If not under Gladiator's Defense, only use skills when Bonetti's is ready to be sprung up again.

  +
*Enter Riven Earth from Rata Sum, and the hero will use "Fall Back!" [[image:"Fall Back!".jpg|25px|"Fall Back!"]].
  +
*Once you enter, get the hero to use Enduring Harmony on you (get bounty if needed)
  +
*Use Fall Back and Incoming to speed up the run to cave
  +
*As you get near to the cave entrance, make the hero use "Make Haste!" [[image:"Make Haste!".jpg|25px|"Make Haste!"]], and "Can't Touch This!" [[image:"Can't Touch This!".jpg|25px|"Can't Touch This!"]] on you, then flag him/her back near the res shrine.
  +
*Cast Mark of Pain on the first raptor.
  +
*Head to the left and try to aggro every raptor and the boss group. However, you will be able to kill the boss if you aggro just 23 raptors, so don't waste time aggroing the other raptors if theres a bad spawn or due to player mistake
  +
*If you have two different 33% IMS active at the same time, raptors will break aggro. You can use this to stop and cast Mark of Pain again when recharged.
  +
*Ball the group up, stop and hit Dolyak Signet [[image:Dolyak Signet.jpg|25px|Dolyak Signet]] -> Protector's Defense [[image:Protector's Defense.jpg|25px|Protector's Defense]] -> Hundred Blades [[image:Hundred Blades.jpg|25px|Hundred Blades]]-> Wary Stance [[image:Wary Stance.jpg|25px|Wary Stance]] -> Mark of Pain (on a raptor adjacent to the boss)
  +
*Use Shield stance, and then Whirlwind Attack.
  +
*Pick up your drops.
  +
* /resign and repeat. Or ask your leechers to portal.
   
A commonly used tactic is, while waiting for Gladiator's Defense to recharge, to repeatedly spam Cyclone Axe, and put Bonetti's Defense back up as soon as the attack is made. This allows for enormous healing from Live Vicariously and/or Vigorous Spirit, as well as still being able to block out the attacks with Bonetti's Defense.
+
==Counters==
  +
*Mark of Pain running out before you get whirlwind attack off.
  +
*Failing to use 2 Mark of Pain
  +
*rubber banding.
   
 
==Variants==
 
==Variants==
*Replace [[gw:Live Vicariously|Live Vicariously]] or [[gw:Mending|Mending]] with [[gw:Vigorous Spirit|Vigorous Spirit]] so you can have 1 pip of Energy Regeneration.
+
*Dolyak Signet can be dropped if you take {{skill icon|"Stand Your Ground!"}} on the hero. The freed slot on your bar is up to you to decide on. Some choices are:
*Replace [[gw:Healing Breeze|Healing Breeze]] with [[gw:Sprint|Sprint]] for running past monsters. ([[gw:Healing Signet|Healing Signet]] will be important because you might not have the 10 energy required for Healing Breeze).
+
**{{skill icon|"To the Limit!"}} can quickly charge Whirlwind Attack and provides more health.
*Replace [[gw:Healing Breeze|Healing Breeze]] with [[gw:Strength of Honor|Strength of Honor]] for more damage.
+
**{{skill icon|Soldier's Defense}} can quickly charge Whirlwind Attack before using Wary Stance, and provides additional blocking while waiting for the raptors to ball.
*Replace [[gw:Dolyak Signet|Dolyak Signet]] with [[gw:Vigorous Spirit|Vigorous Spirit]] for stronger healing bursts.
+
*Endure Pain for health if you have having trouble surviving.
*Replace [[gw:Gladiator's Defense|Gladiator's Defense]] with [[gw:Triple Chop|Triple Chop]] for a more active damage base.
+
*Replace [[gw:Live Vicariously|Live Vicariously]] with [[gw:Strength of Honor|Strength of Honor]] for faster farming. [[gw:Smiting Prayers|Smiting Prayers]] of 10 or 11 is recommended.
+
===No Hero Version===
*Replace [[gw:Gladiator's Defense|Gladiator's Defense]] with [[gw:Healing Hands|Healing Hands]] and [[gw:Healing Signet|Healing Signet]] with [[gw:Vigorous Spirit|Vigorous Spirit]] and [[gw:Healing Breeze|Healing Breeze]] with [[gw:Dismember|Dismember]] or [[gw:Flail|Flail]] to farm lvl 22 Hydras outside Augury. While wearing plate or dreadnought set and Strength: 10 + 1 +1(+2 while in dreadnought), Axe mastery: 10 + 1, Tactics : 7 + 1, Healing prayers : 9.

  +
*This variant does not require the hero.
  +
*Use Great Dwarf Armor before entering in the cave. Use Mark of Pain on the first raptor nestling you see.
  +
*When you are balling them you must select another raptor nestling as target, just with a simple click.
  +
*When you stop use Protector's Defense -> Hundred Blades -> Endure Pain -> Mark of Pain on the selected raptor, so you have 2 MoPs put. Then use Wary Stance -> Whirlwind Attack.
  +
*Use sprint on recharge.
  +
*Recommended to have as high hp and armor as possible. Recommended energy : 35-40.
  +
*Another variant could be drinking a light alcohol beverage and using drunken master instead of sprint.
  +
*If you don't have a high rank in delver you may swap Great Dwarf Armor with Dolyak Signet.
   
 
==Notes==
 
==Notes==
*If you [[gw:maintain|maintain]] too many [[gw:enchantment|enchantment]]s, your Energy Regeneration might be less than 0. If this is the case, cast only enough enchantments to have 0 Energy Regeneration before battle, and the remaining while in battle. Also, be sure to keep [[gw:Bonetti's Defense|Bonetti's Defense]] up whenever it is available.
+
*Remember that using [[gw:Vigorous Spirit|Vigorous Spirit]] will cancel out [[gw:Bonetti's Defense|Bonetti's Defense]], so be sure to have [[gw:Dolyak Signet|Dolyak Signet]] and [[gw:Healing Breeze|Healing Breeze]] active beforehand. Also, keep in mind (if farming Mountain Trolls) to not use two 1-second cast skills (ie Healing Breeze, then Cyclone Axe), as the Disrupting Chop attempts (which leak through Bonetti's) can miss the first skill, but end up Disrupting the second skill, as well as increasing the recycle time by 20 seconds.
+
*Tip- After entering Riven Earth for the first time, return to Rata Sum before leaving again. This way, when you complete each run, you can simply resign to be returned to the outpost right by the entrance to the next run.
