Blacktide Den
3rd Town Mission

Few basics about Blacktide Den...
(article continues below)

When I speak of bonus I am talking about masters bonus which is harder of the two to get. Bonus's are Masters (hardest), Expert (moderate).

Suggested Hero's and Henchmen to Bring: this will be what I have found most effective, and will take it as you have all the hero's.

General Tips

Set all hero's to the shield (defense) that way they do not attack unless they are attacked or you attack. I like to set my healing hero's to passive so they don't attack just heal.

Blacktide Den

Hero's Needed for you party- Tahlkora

Objective's Defeat General Kahyet. Do added tasks.

BONUS Defeat all of the Rinkhal Monitors.

Suggested Level level 15

Suggested Hero's and Henchmen to Bring

Tahlkora- because she is needed.

A necromancer (Set up for Minion Master)-Hero

A monk -Hero

-Henchmen-monk, warrior, dervish, paragon

Walk Through

First thing you are going to do is find and defeat Iornfist's Envoy.

Once you have done this you will be disguised and able to talk to Captain Besuz and he will lead you to General Kahyet. Do not think this will be easy you will be fighting your way there, and if you want the bonus you will separate from him to do those, don't worry he stops while you run off to do bonus.

Most mobs are low level so they should be easy enough to defeat. Captain Besuz will stop before each group of mobs he want you to defeat before moving on.

General Kahyet is accompanied by two Grasps of Chaos. Defeat them and Captain Besuz to end the mission.

Getting The Bonus

The bonus is to defeat all 5 of the Rinkhal Monitors in the swamp. You will find the first monitor shortly after defeating Ironfist's Envoy, before meeting Captain Besuz. There are two more to the east of the first monitor, and two more to the west.

Playing in Hard Mode

The skale stampede can be a problem if you take them all on at once. Head west from Besuz as if you where headed to the last two rinkhal monitors, and then turn south at the first opportunity. You'll reach the stampede from the north, but they won't stampede until you approach from the east.

The Griffons are now quite strong healers, they have a rez spell and decent heals, so be sure to defeat them early.

Blacktide Den Tips

Target healing mobs first they will make your life harder if they are allowed to heal.

The Hero Builds

Tweek the builds to what skills you have but try to keep the concept of the build intact.

Signet of Devotion, Signet or Rejuvenation, Orison of Healing, Words of Comfort, Watchful Healing, Cure Hex, Light of Deliverance, Resurrection Chant

Concept This is just your basic heal monk, healing is the priority here. Make sure this monk is on passive.


a monk build that also allows for minnions

Animate Bone Minions, Animate Shambling Horror, Signet of Devotion, Signet or Rejuvenation, Orison of Healing, Heal Party, Glimmer of Light, Resurrection Chant

Concept One of my favorite builds, I call it The Minion Healer. This healer not only heals but can help by making minions.
