Default Ranger Margonite Farming

Hello everybody,

First a little note: I did not make this build myself, all I did was combining a build and a farming spot from 2 other people and I wrote a guide, I do not take credit for thinking up the builds.
Originial thread: http://www.guildwarsguru.com/forum/s...php?t=10138686
Post that gave me the idea(in the same thread): http://www.guildwarsguru.com/forum/s...3&postcount=22


ok, now we have had that, time to farm!!!

Verani's Solo Margonite farming!

Getting the Quest!

To be able to do this farm you will need the quest: Battle of Turei's procession* http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/Battle_...27s_Procession
You can get this quest from Mirza Veldrunner in Turei's procession, but you will first need to complete: Ancestral Anguish* and Crossing the Desolation.
But you will also need a quest from Zhed form the command post, namely Centaur Concerns: http://gw.gamewikis.org/wiki/Centaur_Concerns
(Thanks to K R I S S Y for pointing this out to me.)
Follow the steps on Guildwiki and you should be fine.

*note: Some of these quests are follow up quests, you will first need to complete others to be able to get these ones.

The Build

[skill]Splinter Weapon[/skill] <-- Really needed
[skill]Barrage[/skill] <-- Really needed
[skill]Edge of Extinction[/skill] <-- Really needed
[skill]Zojun's Haste[/skill]
[skill]Natural Stride[/skill]
[skill]Dodge[/skill]
2 Optional slots
I Use [skill]Winnowing[/skill] and [skill]Wielder's Strike[/skill]
I have not looked at any skills that will help me kill the last boss, but you could probably replace Winnowing and Wielder's Strike for saySavage Shot and Apply poisen.

You will need a Fast recharging run skill, so you can make quick hit and run strikes. I cycle through the skills in the following order: Natural stride->Zojun's Haste-> Natural stride->Dodge->Natural Stride->Zojun's->Etc...

Attribute Setup

7+1 Beast Mastery (Use a +4 headpiece when setting Edge of Extinction)
4+3 Expertise
7+1 Wilderness Survival (Use a +3 headpiece when setting Winnowing)
8+4 Marksmanship (play around with this, not really needed)
12 Channeling

Equipment

Weapons

Zealous flatbow of xxx
Zealous for the energy management(should not have too many problems with that)
Flatbow because of the high arc, gives you time to get away.

Vamperic shortbowof xxx
Use this to kill of annoying last mobs, vamp helps kill them a bit faster.

Armor
Any armor can be used
Recommended is Druids armor or armor with Radiant insignias.

The Farm!

Go to Venta's Cemetary, fFrom there Head north into Turei's procession.

Follow this Path


You should see Mirza Veldrunner on the way, west from him is a ressurection shrine, do not forget to activate it.

Walk to this point so the first wave of margonites will attack the Horsies.


Walk back a bit and to the side, wat for the margonites to slay most of the Centaurs and plant your spirits.


Then walk to the middle of the path, select a margonite from the group, one that is a bit in the middle. Do this by pressing C(default) and then Tab(default) till you get one thats nice in the middle.


The hard part! now with VIDEO!

Video of the run: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM7ZnZtYugY
Thanks to andrewf for sharing this with us.

Now this part is a bit tricky, you need to get the right feeling for it.

Put on splinter weapon and use barrage on the selected Margonite, immediatly run a bit back using 1 of your run skills. In the very first wave some executioner smight follow you for a bit, don't worry, they almost always do this, they'll go back.
Cast Splinter weapon again, and barrage the same margonite again, run back again with 1 of your speedboosts on. (If you are having troubles with this, whisper me ingame and I'll try to help.) T
he entire group should die in about 5-9 barrage attempts, they sometimes die a little bit slower due to the margonites Aegises.

NOTE: when firing the last barrage at a group, the one they will die after, do not run away TOO fast, else you wont gain EXP nor get loot!!!!!!!!

There will be a total of 4 waves, the first 3 waves will exsist out of 3 groups which each exist out of 8 margonites. just follow the patern given above and they will all die quite fast. This totals out to about 82 margonites, most of them will dorp stuff, and give 168 exp a piece (without scrolls)

After these three groups, there will be 1 last group with a boss in it, use the same tactics, however, the boss will not die. I'm still trying to figure out how to kill him. Any idea's on this one would be appreciated.

Inbetween the waves of margonites I try to pick up my loot, as the last gorup will have 1 survivor who will kill you pretty quickly, almsot every run will leave you with a full inventory, netting you anywhere between 3-5K.

Picture of the loot:

there is way more loot then this, I ran away too fats on a wave, and already picked up a bit, ill try to get all of it in another screenshot.

Everybody have fun farming, I hope I helped a little bit, and yet again, I do not take credit for this, as I used other people's idea's and builds.

Greets, DvM

Open to suggestions, improvements etc.

If a r/rt can do it, rt/r can do it faster due to more damage from splinter weapon.

Now I have to update my rt/r dead sword farming thread to include this.

Good job finding another spot that this build is useful in.

EDIT: If you would want to kill the boss, you could try taking nightmare weapon and dual shot, along with lightbringers gaze, I have not tried it yet, just trying to come up with ideas.

You will firts have to do ''crossing the desolaiton'' like I said in my post, it is a quest you get after doing all the vabbie missions.

Tehn you do 4 follow-up quests, and then you can take this one

He only gave me 1 quest, and will not offer any more, and I have completed the game already, so it cannot be because I did not do crossing the desolation.

Great job, just tried it. If you are having trouble with the last mob(s) or boss you can always flag heroes/henchies at the start of the map and bring them over to help so you dont have to leave loot on the ground.

I am having the same trouble as others. I beat the game and I only get the one quest offered. After I do the breed quest then it just stops. Maybe it requires other things or maybe it requires for you not to beat the game but I know i cant do it so whatever. Nice find though.
