Farming builds & guides

Just comment on the builds below. They're just general concepts.


Famine Farming

Byzzr Wingmender

Farmable item:

- Elite Monk Tome
- Byzzr's Benediction (crappy monk focus, i suggest merching when you get one)
- Random Goldies
- Mantis Pincers (?! :P )


<pvxbig> [build name="byzzr wingmender" prof=range/mesme wilder=12+1+3 inspir=10 domina=8][famine][mind wrack][spirit shackles][spirit of failure][empathy][diversion][storm chaser][whirling defense][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment +3 Wilderness Survival rune, +1 Wilderness Survival mask. Optional: expertise rune, +1/20 Domination staff or 20/20 inspiration set.

Start: gw:Lutgardis Conservatory Boss area: gw:Melandru's Hope

Use Storm Chaser to run to gw:Byzzr Wingmender. Do not aggro any foes (this is easy).

Combat

Pull Byzzr with any one of your hexes "through the rock". Maintain:

-FAMINE
-Spirit Shackles
-Spirit of Failure
-Empathy

Spam:

-Mind Wrack

Anti-heal:

-Diversion:

Variants:

- Ignorance. But you'll have to keep spamming that, since it's only for 14 secs. Diversion > that. It gives 35 secs + basic recharge.
- Primal Echoes. Drop inspiration a bit, kick some points in Beast Mastery and put up the spirit. to be honest, I never tried this because it sucks already when even thinking of it.

Notes:

Byzzr won't be able to use Empathic Removal. Why? He's a dumb AI dude who doesn't understand you can also cast it on a condition and hex free ally to have the effect on yourself as well. Your hexes will thus not be removed.
Craw Stonereap

Farmable items:

- Elite Necromancer Tome
- The Stonereaper (Curses Necro staff, stats arent that bad)
- Random goldies

<pvxbig> [build name="craw stonereap" prof=range/mesme wilder=12+1+3 inspir=10 domina=8][famine][mind wrack][spirit shackles][spirit of failure][empathy][storm chaser][troll unguent][i am unstoppable][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment +3 Wilderness Survival rune, +1 Wilderness Survival mask and an armor piece you can use to replace the runed armor piece. Optional: expertise rune, +1/20 Domination staff or 20/20 inspiration set.

Start: gw:Altrumm Ruins Boss area: gw:Arborstone

Use Storm Chaser, Troll Unguent and "I Am Unstoppable!" to run past the wardens to gw:Craw Stonereap. Do not aggro the wardens after you ran past them.

Combat

Pull Craw with any one of your hexes "through the rock". Maintain:

-FAMINE
-TROLL UNGUENT <---- very important when Craw still has energy!!!
-Spirit Shackles

-Mind Wrack

Variants: A different running skill, although I wouldn't know which one. Drunken Master?

Totem axes

<pvxbig> <pvxbig> [build prof=range/any wilder=10+2 expert=10+2 marksm=11+1][zojuns haste][natural stride][dodge][troll unguent][kindle arrows][burning arrow][i am the strongest][you move like a dwarf][/build] </pvxbig>

Youtube got spammed full by running vids for these skills. Actually you don't really need a vid; it's pretty straightforward.

1, 2 and 3 for running (and 4 if you really think you're going to die). 5, 6 and 7 for killing behemoths (and, if necessary, skales and pods). Use 8 to interrupt pods using heals, do damage to behemoths, and most importantly, not letting the Elementalist boss cast Ice Spikes on you, since this will cause delay and potential failure.

Mesmer

General

Interrupt Walhalla

<pvxbig> [build prof=mesme/any domina=12+1+1 fastca=10 inspir=8+2][wastrels worry][signet of disruption][signet of distraction][cry of frustration][tease][web of disruption][drain delusions][resurrection signet][/build] </pvxbig> Abuse interrupts, spam WW and keep up your energy with 5, 7 and 8.

Dervish

Fun

I Haz Healz

<pvxbig> [build prof=dervi/monk mystic=12+1+3 healin=10 earthp=8+2][avatar of dwayna][eternal aura][patient spirit][signet of pious light][conviction][vigorous spirit][essence bond][balthazar's spirit][][/build] </pvxbig> Ooooooh, take a look at THAT. Like, uhm... 63 + 63 + 90 + 90 + 15 + 15 + 16 = 352 health in 5 seconds, so like 70 hps. On you. With 50% chance to block and insane hex removal. Not bad for a dervish.

I Haz Protz

<pvxbig> [build prof=dervi/monk mystic=12+1+3 protec=10 windpr=8+2][avatar of dwayna][eternal aura][reversal of fortune][spirit bond][vow of piety][protective spirit][essence bond][balthazar's spirit][][/build] </pvxbig> What needs to be said? Reversal of fortune is friggin awesome. So is spirit bond. Or at least, they are when you get 5 energy when they end. Oh, and when you are healed for 60 and lose a hex when you use them. And with perma +24AL and +3 regen.

Ava of Dwayna is sick. So is Mysticism.

Arcane Zhealer

Nope, probably not the first to make that joke. <pvxbig> [build prof=dervi/mesme mystic=12+1+1 windpr=12+2 illusi=3][dwaynas touch][ebon escape][mystic healing][mystic twister][arcane zeal][faithful intervention][illusion of weakness][watchful intervention][/build] </pvxbig> Caster spear + HCT/HSR 10% focus. Pity there's no offhand weaponry linked to stuff like Wind Prayers or Earth Prayers. They should've made that. The healing speaks for itself. Imbue Health can also be used if you're not comfortable with Dwayna's Touch range. Also Illusion of Weakness can be interchanged for Assassin Skills such as Heart of Shadow (to shadow-step away from the ally targeted).
