  • A Minion Master (maybe even two) is strongly recommended in this dungeon as there is an overabundance of corpses and all enemies leave bodies. Not only that, but the corpse-denial will reduce the threat of the Nettle Necromancers.
  • Moderate Hex Management and condition management are recommended as the dungeon has necromancers, mesmers, paragons (burning) as well as traps that inflict poison.
  • The Blooming Nettle are monks who spam Glimmer of Light and have a large energy pool, energy denial is in no way effective against them or many of the other mobs in the dungeon. The blooming nettle also spawn necromancer plant mobs (each monk can produce multiple necromancers).
  • On the 2nd level within the cave section with lots of floating blue lights, there is a large group of several Stormcloud Incubus patrolling the cave. Try to avoid aggroing them as they can easily wipe a party out.
  • The traps that poison and cripple are scattered through out the dungeon and are single-trigger only. There are many of them on the path to the boss chamber, and at least one within the chamber itself.
  • AoE is also recommended for this dungeon
  • Entering rooms where friendly NPCs are standing triggers an event that has an army of mobs bear down upon the friendly NPCs. It is best to trigger the event and then stand back while the two factions fight it out. Interference will result in the entire army aggroing on you.
  • Generally it is advised to play for the Red Side (Giriff) for the easier boss-fight at the end and certain aggro events through the first level of the dungeon. Play for the Yellow Side (Tekks) if you wish a slightly more challenging experience.
  • Remember to flag your heroes henchmen away from boss's spirit rift .
