Equipment

  • Radiant armor with +1 Shadow Arts head piece and a Rune of Superior Shadow Arts (+3) on the head piece for 16 Shadow Arts.
  • A high-energy staff with +20% enchantments.

Counters

Notes

  • Practice, practice, and more practice.
  • The boss deals too much damage with its attack skills, which makes it pretty difficult to kill and survive. You are still able to kill a fair amount of nestlings, especially for festival items.

Variants

  • None known yet.

  • Being interrupted.
  • Aggroing Angorodons or adult raptors.
  • Twisting Jaws if you don't have enough health.
  • Not maintaining Mental Block from the start or failing in any other way.

Notes

  • Practice, practice, and more practice.

Variants

A paragon hero can be taken to speed up the run and counter against Broodmother's Twisting Fangs. While using the hero is optional, it does speed up the run and makes it a bit easier, though learning how to use it takes a while. <pvxbig> [build prof=Paragon/Ritualist name="P/Rt Vocal Commandgon" Command=12+1+3 Lead=6 Resto=11][Vocal Was Sogolon]["Fall Back!"]["Incoming!"][Enduring Harmony]["Make Haste!"]["Can't Touch This!"][Optional][Optional][/build] </pvxbig>

  • Equipment doesn't matter as he/she is carrying Ashes of Sogolon anyway.
  • Disable all skills on the hero. Make the hero cast Vocal Was Sogolon, then "Fall Back!". When Fall Back runs out, use "Incoming!". At the entrance to the cave, make the hero cast Enduring Harmony, "Make Haste!" and "Can't Touch This!" on you, then flag him back at the resurrection shrine.
