  • Furious Sword of Shelter
  • -2 while in stance or +10 vs. Blunt shield of Fortitude
  • Knight's Insignia is recommended for more damage absorption.



  • Devourers spawning will ruin the run as it is very difficult to fight them.
  • Try not to aggro the Gargoyles as they make fighting near impossible and are hard to run away from.



  • You may sometimes get a spawn where a number of Grawl are attacking the Elementals. It is possible to run past these groups and kill Elementals elsewhere, but it is suggested to re-enter Sardelac Sanitarium and return again to get a "normal" spawn.
  • This build can be used with some difficulty to farm Hard Mode Minotaurs.
  • This build can be used to farm Blessed Griffons at Camp Rankor. (Beware of the mesmers, it's best to pull them out and kill them 1 by 1 as they can kill you quite fast)
  • This build can be used to farm Hard Mode Jade Brotherhood Knights outside of The Marketplace.
  • This build can be used for farming several melee bosses by fighting the mobs up to and around the boss with henchmen then flagging them offscreen so that drops are assigned to you (see list of farmable bosses).
  • It is also possible to farm Grawl with this build, there is often a large mob of them near Ambassador Zain and his group. If you pull the Grawl to where you are inside his range and they are outside of it (line up the edge of your aggro bubble just past him) he will heal you and you can kill the Grawl with ease. However if you pull the Grawl too close to him he will heal them as well.
  • The speed boost is used for getting around faster.
  • Try to only use Healing Signet when you have Gladiator's Defense up to avoid taking too much damage from the -40 armor.
  • Dolyak Signet isn't really needed when fighting the elementals, but comes in handy against the Crown of Thorns which use Signet of Judgement. It's also nice to have in case of an emergency.
