Ettin Farming

Post by 7areega » Wed Jan 04, 2006 1:20 am

Watsup people, its Mage Humper

here are a few builds that were quite useful when farming ettins.


W/? = Cyclone axe, Dismember, Executioner's strike, disrupting chop, desperation blow, dolyak sig, gladiator defence, healing signet.

* for this to work properly, use desperation blow while dolyak sig is on so you wont get knocked down. use gladiator's defence + dolyak signet when your using healing signet so you can avoid extra damage. AND make sure you disrupt the ettin's healing signet as fast as you can this will disable his healing for 20 seconds. otherwise your fight will take forever. (a 1/3 chance you get the ettin to bleed with desperation blow is a good propability so use desp. whenever you can.)


W/Mo = Cyclone axe, Dismember, Executioner's strike, disrupting chop, warrior's endurance, healing breeze, mending, live vicariously.

make sure you have 10+ under healing for best results. with warrior's endurance your energy will regenerate quite nicely just make sure you dont use your last 5 energy since u need that much to cast W-E. you can fight real well with adrenalin skills, so fight till W-E is recharged. and dont forget to disrupt. this build compared to the previous one helps keep your mind on the fighting since it does some autohealing for you. however it tends to take up more brainpower to maintain. for those who dont know what ettin farming is, ill take some screenshots and make you a nice easy map to tell you how.

Map for ettin farming

Post by 7areega » Wed Jan 04, 2006 5:37 am

heres the map, its the most informative, least confusing that i could come up with in 15 mins. its easy, when u finish the red trail i made... follow the blue trail. make sure you fight only ettins, you will have to fight other monsters from time to time though.




i attached the map so have fun, and PAY TRIBUTE... j/k.

Hi Mage, i have a good build to kill ettins fast.

With my W/R (axe) i hit 'tigers fury' first letting my adrenaline skills build - waiting til the ettin tries to heal i hit my first skill -disrupting chop- and interupts healing then i hit eviscerate - executioner's strike - dismember - finishing off with swift chop - heal sig if needed then repeat for next ettin - fastest way i have so far - key - wait til they try to heal then hit skill bar.

what does tiger's fury do? and one comment, dismember barely does damage, evis. does the same only more damage. i suggest you add penetrating blow instead of dismember. try that, or if you could sacrifice a skill try putting dolyak sig or balanced stance so u can use desperation blow without getting knocked down. since your not running aroun ddolyak sig will do plus it gives armor.

Yup - all good suggestions. Personally I use Glimmering Mark and Disrupting Chop on the buggers. It's easy street when they're all blind!

true, thought about blinding them but couldnt find an efficient skill at that, glimmer mark is for what class. is it elite?
