ToPK Guide

By Howe304, IGN Knife of Darcness i'll be happy to show you in game.

The Build

This build is very good for ToPK, thanks to your +20 energy staff you will have 60 energy which considering the SF cycle only take 30 is alot of excess. This meens that even if the Grasps use "Fear Me!" you will probably still survuve.

Skills

  • The only things you must have are the SF cycle skills. This leaves almost the whole bar open but it must be filled with 2/3 things: a way of dealing damage, this will take up most the bar, a Shadow Step and an IMS if you want.
  • Damage:
    • Meteor Shower Meteor Shower - good damage but high energy cost.
      • Fire skills are not used very much now as becuase of the -33% the enemies scatter before they can be killed as they would have been before.
    • Aftershock Aftershock - great for extra damage to all adjacent foes can be used with Glyph of Lesser Energy to cover the higher energy cost.
    • Sliver Armor Sliver Armor - the most commonly used skill, however becomes inefficent for killing small number of foes and due to -33% needs buffs.
  • Shadow Step [SS]:
  • IMS:
    • Dark Escape Dark Escape - good for quikly getting to the Terrors, can be used to lose agro if you are going to die.
    • Dash Dash - same as above.

Equipment

Usage

Permaform Variants

Dagger Form
  • This is a variant that requires slightly different usage:
    • Instead of agroing all of the foes to increase Sliver you can simply jump up to the Dream Riders and finish them on thier own.
    • Then jump down to the last 3 Terrors and kill them.
  • Pros:
    • You don't have to agro as many Grasps so you are less likely to die or get body blocked which wastes time as you can kill them on thier own.
  • Cons:
    • May or may not be slower haven't tested it yet.
    • The last group of Terrors may be hard to kill as you can't control what DB damages and therefore with fuel the Grasps "Fear Me!" causing energy problems.
Scythe Form
  • Becuase you need an items such as a con or birthday cupcake to main SF on this build it is not recomended but i included it anyway.
  • This is a variant that requires slightly different usage:
    • Instead of agroing all of the foes to increase Sliver you can simply jump up to the Dream Riders and finish them on thier own.
    • Then jump down to the last 3 Terrors and kill them.
  • Pros and Cons are almost the same as the Dagger-Form above.
    • Con - you need a birthday cupcake or similar item to maintain shadow form.

The Run

Walkthrough

  • Make sure your on HM and enter through the vortex.
  • Activate you IMS (if you brought one)
  • Run to just beyond the outcrop under the bridge and cast the SF cycle being careful to stay out of the agro of the dreams.
  • Run under the bridge agroing the Dream Riders and Terrorwebs.
  • Continue past the group of Grasps and Scythes to agro the other group of Terrorwebs.
  • Be carefull not to run too far as you will lose the 2 groups of Dreams & Terrors you caught first.
  • Try to cast Sliver to damage the Terrors will the others catch up.
  • Recast the SF cycle and move up the steps to agro the Scythes and Grasps at the s

top.

  • Shadow Step down to to Terrors & Dreams that should have moves up to the bottom of the steps in a large group.
  • The Terrors webs should be easy to kill the Dreams however tend to run away, leave them to the end and if you don't have enough energy don't kill them.
  • You can wait for SF to recharge and cast all your spells in one chain to do more damage or you can cast Sliver first and then the SF cycle and miss out on the damage from Intensity and Ebon Battle Standard of Honor.
  • Keep cycling SF and Sliver swapping between casting Sliver first and after SF as recharge allows.
  • Towards the end, probably soon after you have killed the Terrors, you will experiance energy problems, just cast Sliver and SF (without Deadly Paradox if needs be) and finish of the Dreams. Try to cast Sliver with Swiftness as it meens you can use it twice while under SF.
  • Press 'M' and map back to ToPK, you can use the 'Return to Outpost' button but mapping there puts you neerer the vortex.
