  • You can use Saxhleel Champion rather than Martial Knowledge if you need the additional safety of a Heavy Armor set.
  • This trial requires very little actual Tanking from an Off Tank which is why this would be a more useful setup as a buff support rather than a full Tank.

  • For beginner groups using Saxhleel Champion is great because you can use either Colossus as a Necro or Barrier as any other class and boost group survival by a huge amount but at the same time still provide the Warhorn Major Force buff to the group at the same time.
  • I’ve listed Worm as the second set because it’s easy to manage but you can use other sets if you are comfortable using them.

  • In 99% of groups you’ll separate the twins bosses – in that case you’ll want to have Powerful Assault on both groups and Encratis on both bosses. You also need Elemental Catalyst on both bosses  – because the damage they cause is so small its generally not a problem to use PA/EC here.
  • If you have a hard time surviving then switch PA to the Weapons/Jewellery and use Saxhleel Champion.
