  • Go stand left of the spawn circle so you will aggro the Charr that will spawn there. Flag your heroes just behind the left Siege Devourer so that they stay in range for the bonds.
  • When the Armored Saurus comes, flag the monk with Mark of Protection in spell range.
  • When the health of the Armored Saurus gets low, let your monk use Arcane Echo follow by Mark of Protection on him.
  • Use it again after around 7 seconds when he gets damage again (7 seconds are because of the 1 second activation time and to leave a margin)

  • The perma now runs into the cave, wall hugging so that the shrine is NOT activated.
  • This is important as if the shrine is activated, it will screw up the final encounter.

[| Suggested Repeat Route map] How can I make of this just the same nice thing they did on the wiki page?

  • Leave from Longeye's Ledge.
  • Run to Jaga Moraine avoiding any aggro in Bjora Marches.
  • Stay close to the portal to Bjora Marches while claiming the Sacred Altar. You might need to aggro some Spectral Vaettir and kill the groups one by one.
  • Talk to the Bear Spirit.
  • Once back in Bjora Marches, ignore the Shrine of the Bear Spirit and, instead, head South towards the Mandragors (observe patrol pattern if you want to avoid battles).
  • Go East, towards the most Southern Barricade, and use Ursan Force to break through it.
  • Head into the 'final' enclosure (marked with a flag) and kill the groups there by proper pulling if you want to avoid getting wiped.

  • Protection Staff of Mastery

Usage

  • Henchman are not necessary, but can be useful.
  • Talk to Olaf in Olafstead if you are reaping it to instantly travel inside the dungeon, otherwise, follow the quest and you will get there.
  • Place all the bonds on yourself in this order: Protective bond, Essence Bond, Life Barrier, Life Bond, Mending, Watchful Spirit, Strength of Honor, Holy Veil, Balthazar's Spirit, and finally Purifying Veil.
    • To prevent the heroes from cancelling the enchantments, disable them on their bars by Shift + Clicking on them.
  • Keep Mystic Regeneration up on you all times. Keep Fleeting Stability only up if there are still Destroyers Tremor and Destroyers of Bones alive. Use Recall, if you got it, on your monk.
  • Cancel Recall when only the essential bonds (Protective Bond and Essence Bond) are still on you. Let the monks bond you again, you recall on then, activate your enchantments and go killing again. Repeat this when necessary.
  • Always kill the Destroyer of Thoughts first, as they have enchantment removal.
  • Just follow the normal route, as there is no shorter one.
  • Be sure to take take the Raven Blessing only on the second level instead of Alkar's Alchemical Acid to be sure the destroyers will spawn in that level and not the normal foes.
  • At the last level, at the room with the gate, you must first clear the room, that attack the gate and ignore the Destroyers spawning there. Monk Henchman come in handy here to tank or remove the hex: Soul Leech and to cover your enchantments with others. Also is it nice to have Warrior or Elementalist Henchman in your party to tank the interrupts.

  • Protection Staff of Mastery

Usage

  • Take the 2 Monks and the 2 Warrior Henchman.
  • Place all the bonds on yourself in this order: Protective bond, Essence Bond, Life Barrier, Life Bond, Mending, Watchful Spirit, Strength of Honor, Holy Veil, Balthazar's Spirit, and finally Purifying Veil.
    • To prevent the heroes from cancelling the enchantments, disable them on their bars by Shift + Clicking on them.
  • In contrary to what is said on the page of the normal Speedbooker, your monks don't need full energy before you go. Almost all damage that is done is melee or elemental. So they don't lose any energy net each hit.
  • Keep Mystic Regeneration and Fleeting Stability up on you at all times. Especially when you run in to a group of Destroyers. Use Recall on your monk.
  • Cancel Recall when only the essential bonds are still on you. Let the monks bond you again, you recall on then, activate your enchantments and go killing again. Repeat this when necessary.
  • Put the G.O.L.E.M. 2.0's on whatever you like.
  • Let your henchman kill the first group (Vaettirs) and the Dryders on the way. Kill the rest yourself.
  • Always kill the Destroyer of Thoughts first, as they have enchantment removal.
  • Continue this way killing enemies until the Norn at Level 2. If you reach that area, instead go left. Flag your monks on the bridge (in spirit range would be nice).
  • Kill the spawning groups there quickly. If they are dead (there will be around 3 groups), continue over the bridge to the other side. Flag your heroes and hench there. Place Recall on a monk and activate your enchantments. Now run (together with the Golems) to the group Destroyers waiting there and directly activate Mystic Regeneration again if it is stripped.
  • Use Alkar's Alchemical Acid as many as possible on the Destroyers of Hope and kill them first!!!! as they can steal health with there skill Soul Leech.
  • After the Destroyers of Hope, kill the Destroyers of Thoughts and at last the Destroyers of Deeds as they have interrupt. Now kill the rest.
  • Continue as normal until level 3.
  • Flag your heroes on the begin platform. Kill the groups at the right and left. Now flag your heroes at the back of a lower platform. Aggro the Disc of Chaos. Kill the Destroyers of Thoughts as soon as possible. Simply kill everything else before actually attacking the Disc of Chaos. It won't kill you and it will only give you energy.

  • Zealous/Vampiric Daggers

Note

  • This build requires 105 HP to work. If your health is higher, the combination of Protective Bond and Mystic Regeneration will not heal you enough. (See variant below for non-105 version.)

  • Protection Staff of Mastery if the non-105HP variant is used.

Non-105HP Variant

  • Substitute Life Bond for Purifying Veil on the first Monk Hero
  • Substitute Life Barrier for BiP on the second Monk Hero
  • Follow usage instructions below, but enchantments should be cast in this order: Protective Bond(s), Life Barrier and lastly, Life Bond. (Anything else can be done before, after or in between these three as long as they're in order) Normally, this would reduces the damage done to your monks too, but because the damage they would get after the reduction of Protective Bond, Life Barrier and Life Bond is too little for them to get damage anyway.
  • This variant doesn't require the player to have 105HP.

Usage

  • Place all the bonds on yourself.
    • To prevent the heroes from cancelling the enchantments, disable them on their bars by Shift + Clicking on them.
  • In contrary to what is said on the page of the normal Speedbooker, your monks don't need full energy before you go. Almost all damage that is done is melee or elemental. So they don't lose any energy net each hit.
  • Keep Mystic Regeneration and Fleeting Stability up on you at all times.
  • Use Asuran Scan and your dagger skills on The Great Destroyer.
  • Use "You Move Like a Dwarf!" to interrupt Lava Wave.

  • A very good quality and informative video with ATC and CotNB in it.
  • The above video uses a monk and 55HP build to kill the Great Destroyer.

  • This uses the 105HP assassin build shown above. It kills the great Destroyer extremely quickly, ~20 seconds in the video.
