If you disagree with this rating, please discuss it on the build's talk page.

This build has been designed for the following use:

  EoC This build requires Consumables to operate properly.  

This build is to complete FoW in the quickest time possible by using 2 Shadow Form Assassins to split. These builds use the same Frontline, Backline and tactics but allows for varied damage dealers. Each set of damage dealers has different advantages and disadvantages, though all are capable of times under 20 minutes. It requires a full conset to work.

UsageEdit

Terra #1 Edit

Terra1

Terra One Route

  1. Start
  2. Run here and kill the Shadow Priest, 3 Rangers and Beast. The ghosts will pop, take both quests. Skeletons can no longer kill the ghosts if they are aggroed.(After silver form fix, agro 2 groups of sceletons with 3 berserks. Kill berserks first, than kill the Shadow Priest, 3 Rangers and Beast).
  3. Run to 3, getting as much aggro as possible. Pull the Skeleton casters so they are just below the Priest of Menzies, but make sure the Priest of Menzies doesn't start running round. Death's Charge up to the Priest. The Warriors will start running round, but the casters will keep wanding, so Sliver Armor can kill Menzies before any Warriors steal Sliver's target. Once the Priest is dead, recast Shadow Form and pick up the book. Run around (do not use Death's Charge or the book will be left up the top) and take the book back to the ghosts. Do not forget to drop the book before recasting Shadow Form or it will run out early due to lack of +20% enchantment. Dragon Liches can interrupt through Shadow Form with Deafening Roar. If you have aggroed one, stop a few seconds before casting Shadow Form as to waste Deafening Roar.
  4. Once the book is back, run to the Shard Wolf in the middle of the battlefield and kill it.
  5. Run to burning forest (check the quest log to see if Terra 2 took the quest from Miko the Unchained before going in. If they have not taken it, take it yourself, shout at them a bit and go into forest). Mahgo Hydras will try to follow you, and use inferno which hit for 190 damage without the right equipment. Run to (5) and recast Shadow Form. Glyph of Lesser Energy and Death's Charge towards the Shard Wolf and kill it. If you are not moving, keep Feigned Neutrality up to reduce the hydra's damage and heal–you should only be standing still while Sliver Armor is up. One Sliver should kill the wolf and most hydras. Run on to (6)
  6. There are 4 Shadow Overlords you need to kill, they don't pull far so you need to stand around the middle of them all after aggroing. There are lots of Hydras, so keep moving until you've just recast SF, then charge something that is alone and use sliver. If done right, all Shadow overlords should die in one go, if not find the last few and kill them off. By then most hydras should be dead so it will be easy. Run on to (7)
  7. Tower of Strength - there should be lots of Shadow Patrols, Abyssals, Mesmers, and Rangers. Kill all the shadow patrols and rangers, leaving any mesmers alive. It is easy to split the rangers from mesmers as they have different weapon ranges. When they are all dead, ask where Terra two is. If they are still doing Khobey, then run to forge and get the mage (just run into minimap range and he will start running) (this shouldn't be the case). Terra two should have finished long ago, and should be waiting near forge to trigger mage. Either way, you have time to kill the shard wolf at(8) before he turns up (Pull the wolf towards the tower so the monks do not heal him). Once the mage opens the tower, kill the nightmare and wait for main team.
  8. Kill the wolf if he isn't already dead.

Terra #2Edit

FoWSC T2

Terra Two Route

  1. Start
  2. Grab quest from Cross grey 20 Miko the Unchained on your way past
  3. Take quest from Ranger-tango-icon-20.png Nimros the Hunter
  4. Kill this Elementalist-tango-icon-20.png Shard Wolf. Lots of monks heal him so you might want to try pulling him into cave.
  5. Kill the Elementalist-tango-icon-20.png Beach Wolf, try not to aggro the warrior guys
  6. Wait at beach for the main team to take the quest Restore the Temple of War. Work though the cave killing the Necromancer-tango-icon-20.png Seeds of Corruption.
  7. ●●● - This is path where the Seeds of Corruption are. If you had trouble with the first wolf then ask where T1 currently is. If he is almost finished at Tower of Strength, wait outside forge so you can trigger the Tower Mage straight away.
  8. ●●● - Follow the yellow line to Mesmer-tango-icon-20.png Lord Khobay. To kill, pull the drakes by the Giant Wurm with you, so you can get more aggro. Be careful not to let the drakes bodyblock the exit, then walk pass the Giant Wurm by Khobay. Death Charge to Khobay and sliver him to death. Now trigger mage if you have not already done so.

Main TeamEdit

  • Clear the way to the Tower of Courage and complete Rastigan The Eternal's quest.
  • Clear the way to the Temple of War and clear it so the Forgemaster appears. Terra 1 takes the quests so you can go directly to the Temple of War.
  • Take the first quest once the Perma is waiting on the south side of the forge. Pull them towards the middle. Once they are dead, pull the Shadow Beasts to the other side and kill. Do the same for the North side.
  • Before leaving the Temple of War, make sure all three quests are taken - Khobay the Betrayer, Restore the Temple of War and Tower of Strength from Eternal Lord Taeres.
  • Head to the Wailing Forest, clear all foes to the wailing lord. Do not kill the Wailing Lord.
  • Pull and kill the nearby wolf.
  • The Ritualist is the quest taker. Wait until everyone else is off the map and ready, then take the quest from the Wailing Lord. Wait until you are called by the main team.
  • If you were far enough away, the griffins will not have followed you. Clear the way back to the Tower of Courage. Once you are almost there, tell the Ritualist they can come with Griffins.
  • Pull and kill the last Wolf. Wait in the Tower until the griffins get there, then head to forge for your reward.
