yeah, i had a warrior/monk who wasnt doing anything, and sugested making a farmer out of them. so i said ok.
I do the exact same thing, only after BA, i just cast divine boon untill they all die. This definately works very well.

Here is what I'm using:

    1 Shield of Judgment
    2 Shielding Hands
    3 Healing Touch
    4 Balthazar's Aura
    5 Symbol of Wrath
    6 Healing Touch


This is the save way, fast and easy. Depending on your health you can cast Healing Touch after B's Aura or even after SoW. If you once found the right timing you don't even need to heal at all.

Further I bring Signet of Devotion (using it instead of 6 for sparing nrg), Healing Breeze (if I 'really' messed up the timing #Crazy I'm using it befor or after 3), and Divine Spirit (sometimes using it before 1 for nrg sparing).
These 3 are just for fun and alternation; and because i don't have any speed boost skill. So if you got one available, bring it.


Attributes are like this:
Healing: 5+1+1
Smiting: 12+1
Protection: 9+1
Divine Favor: 8+1

Energy should be around 45.

I have a slightly different build for my E/Mo:

Water Magic: 11 + 4
Energy Storage: 5 + 3
Smiting Prayers: 12
Healing Prayers: 4

Skills and casting order:
Zealots Fire, Mist Form (lasts 20 seconds), Balthazar's Aura, Symbol of Wrath, Frozen Burst, Orison of Healing (if there are still any Tengu alive).

For running past Bog Scales i have Armor of Mist (20 seconds) and Healing Breeze.

Overall its much more relaxed using Mist Form than Mark of Protection. Usually, I'm done collecting the drops before it wears off.
Frozen Burst also triggers Zealots Fire, which is quite nice.


I have also tried a different Build with Fire Magic:

Fire Magic: 12 + 4
Water Magic: 11 + 3
Healing Prayers: 4
Energy Storage: the rest

Using Inferno, Flame Burst, Lava Font and Fire Storm for damage. In Theory the damage output is about 200-300 higher than the smiting build's, but fire does not full damage to the Tengu, so its still less effective and takes longer to kill them. I cast each spell and Lava Font and Flame Burst two times to kill them, which eats up all the energy even with fire attunement and i recieve damage because Mist Form ends before I'm done.
So It might work for a Elementarist without secondairy monk, but it's not as easy and relaxed.

What i generally do now with my W/Mo is get past the first group of scales, cast essence bond/zelots fire...then go and agro the group on the left, and have them follow me to the group on the right. can do both groups at once.

With the update they changed the Tengu. There are now two mesmers (Tengu Seers, I think they're called) in each group of four.

After trying my old farming build, I noticed that one Tengu mesmer tends to cast Strip Enchantment followed by Cry of Frustration, while the other casts those in the opposite order.

Any new suggestions for some farming? I don't care if it's slower, I just need the runes/money. I have ~9 plat in the vault and that's it.

Farm the Hall Very Happy

I haven't tried since update but Mountain Trolls in talus chute (the cave to the west of draknors) are definitely quality xp farming ppl. They are moderately tough but easy to do with pretty much any class as with almost all other farming.

You could try farming bosses in the new zones and selling green weapons.

3/8 chance of earning a sigil.
1/8 chance of earning a rare weapon.

Sigils sell for 30k-40k I think.

You need a really solid team and build to 'farm' the hall though.

When I meant farm SF I was referring to taking a group of 3-4 people in a pseudo gank squad and just running around hitting bosses.
