The order of the run as follows: [ check personal descriptions for important details ]

Part 1: [ the entire team ]

Before taking the quest in chamber the entire team does a circle starting from the spawn altar and pops any dyings. The Terras serve here as temporary tanks. After there are no dyings or any other monsters in the immediate vicinity of the grasping spawns, the Rits put their spirits down on the one closest to the left gate.

Quest activation: Clear the Chamber

The entire team clears the graspings starting from the left, then proceeds towards the bridge to clear the way for the Terras.

Part 2: [ Mountains, Chamber, Pools ]

The Terras separate from the main team to do their first areas.

Pools goes pools.
Mountains goes mountains.
Chamber goes wastes.

Put Protective Bond on yourself and on the entire party. Stay back during the first labyrinth pulls so you don't get rended. You can tank some of the aatxes later on, but don't go all out on the pulls, since if you don't feed them spells that have a longer casting time, they will interrupt your Ether Renewal - the more there are on you, the higher the chance, so make sure that doesn't happen. Don't tank graspings.

*Wherever you teleport, make sure to bond up the reaper.

At Dhuum kill any minions that sit on you asap, they are an additional strain on your energy. Don't ever cast more than 1 long spell consecutively during Dhuum's Judgement.

*Take a high energy set with 20% enchants.
*Don't forget your personal cons!

Healer Monk

<pvxbig> [build prof=Mo/A name="Healer Monk" healing=12+1+2 divine=12+1][Patient Spirit@16][Seed of Life][Dwayna's Kiss@16][Infuse Health@16][Heaven's Delight@14][Spotless Mind@16][Unyielding Aura@14][Selfless Spirit][/build] </pvxbig>

You are mostly needed during Escort of Souls, beyond that you can sit back and look pretty. Keep your finger on the Infuse in case any bonds drop.

<pvxbig> *Use the Necro's [[Ebon Battle Standard Of Wisdom] with [[Heaven's Delight@14] to heal multiple targets during Dhuum.

*Use [[Seed of Life] on the Bonder for miraculous party-wide healing.</pvxbig>

*note to self: unify the pools terra with the mountains terra, so they can cover the other area if such need arises.
