Pre-Searing Farm Guide
Chapter 1: Introduction
Welcome to the Ultimate Pre-Searing Guide! Here, you will learn the best way
-Get experiance and level up
-Get money and items
-Learn how to use different builds
What you do is, farm River Skale and Skale Broodcallers. With the method I have
devised, this can easily be done. The rewards for this are great, and it is easy
and fun to do! All you need is this...
Chapter 2: Requirements
I am sure by now, you are wondering: "What must I do to achieve this greatness?"
Wonder no more.
-Be able to access
-Have a method of healing yourself
-Having all the collector's armor.
-Be under level 7.
-Having Gwen heal you. (By giving her a "Red Iris Flower", and letting her
-Having a skill that deals area damage.
Chapter 3: Character
By now, I am sure you are curious to what kind of character you need to be able
to do this. Well, here is the answer: It does not matter! Almost any character,
can do this run, with any common sense. Just make sure you are able to heal
yourself, and that you are at least level 4.
Chapter 4: Let's Begin!
Ok. Are you ready!? The time has now come, to achieve fame and fortune without
even breaking a sweat! Alright, I'll break it down for ya'.
[Step 1]Take the south exit out of Fort Ranik.
[Step 2]Get ready to follow this path.
Once you reach this area, climb down the hill and let the River Skales overtake
[Step 3]Now that you have aggrovated your victim's, take them back to your lair.
[Step 4]Back track your steps, back to the "Academy Monk".
[Step 5]You see that tree near the "Academy Monk"? Once you have taken a step
past the tree, the "Academy Monk" will heal you constantly, making you
[Step 6]Now, you want to turn around and fight! Take them out! Now that they are
all clustered together, and you are invincible, this would be a good time to use
any area attack skills you have!
[Step 7]Once you have wiped the battlefield clean, take your spoils! For the
record, my major finds have been...
-1 Black dye
-1 Yellow Dye
-1 Silver Dye
-Tons of blue items
Chapter 5: Is it over?
Is that the end of this periolous adreniline pumping journey!? I think not! Now
that you have dominated the battlefield, it is time to go collect some hefty
[Step 1]Go straight, towards a circle of large stone wall things...
[Step 2]Keep on heading forward, untill you reach a very large hill.
Now, you have an extra option. If you are mainly in this for the experiance,
then I suggest whipping out a bow, and attacking anyone around you see. Since
you are up so high on the hill, you will deal massive damage.
[Step 3]Now, turn back up the hill after that little venture, and hold down the
[ALT] key. Now you will see a large hill that you cannot walk on. Walk a circle
around it, starting from the left, while still holding the [ALT] key. You will
see at least one or maybe two Hidden stashes. These contain items that are
commonly blue. Sometimes you will have a hard time finding a chest, and maybe it
wont be there.
Boo hoo. But you should at least get one per run.
Enjoy! You have just finished your "Ultimate Pre-Sear" farm run! Now, just rinse
and repeat, and you shall be living the high life in no time!
Chapter 6: Experiance Counter
Since this is such a good, quick easy way to level up and get experiance FAST, I
decided to throw this in. It shows how much experiance you will get from a Level
2 Skale Broodcaller, according to your level.
[Level 4]64 Exp.
[Level 5]48 Exp.
[Level 6]32 Exp.
[Level 7]16 Exp.
Chapter 7: Builds
-Deathly Swarm Area attack
-Animate Bone Horror
What to do:
On your way back to the monk, you need to be patient and go slow. Doing this
makes sure that you dont lose half of your victims. What you do is run untill
your mob reaches the end of the aggrovation bubble. Once there you wait untill
they attack and//or catch up to you again. Your option here is to cast Troll
Unget often to keep yourself alive.
Now, once you have reached the monk, you stand next to her. You whip out a bow,
and you select a target. First, I would use Deathly Swarm. After the first
target is dead, I would use Animate Bone Horror. The positve of this skill is
that it makes all the enemies attack it, and not you. And, it will pretty much
be invincible since the Monk heals it. So, you pretty much rinse and repeat.
-Fire Storm Area attack
-Aura of Restoration
-Glyph of Lesser Energy
What to do:
For aggrovating, use the same tactics.
Once you have reached the monk, your first spell is Glyph of Lesser energy. Now,
select a target that is smack in the middle of your mob. Cast Fire Storm on him.
Now, you can go around picking out level 2 targets and hitting them with Power
Shot. You should kill all but 3 or 4 from Fire storm. Now you can choose to
either snipe them out or just wait for Fire Storm again.
Chapter 8: Extra Screens
When you are looking for chests, look inside this circle. This is mainly where
they are located.
