I'm trying to fix it up...(funny part is I made it a week before the nerf...just didnt make a page for it :P)

This is a team build used to quickly clear Ice Cliff Chasms for some Norn Reputation. Each run should take about 10 minutes as well as grant each player approx 1.5k Norn Reputation (With some gold and drops of course). Teams should be formed in the Europe, Russian Districts. Please note that all smites DO NOT have to be 16/16. To support more professions to be able to do this run, any profession with 4 energy pips can smite with 12/12 attributes and get the same result in the same amount of time.

Imp Team

Imp route


[build prof=any/Rt com=12 cha=12][Signet of Spirits][Vampirism][Bloodsong][Pain][Summon Spirits (Kurzick)][Armor of Unfeeling][Painful Bond][Optional][/build] </pvxbig>

  • "Finish Him!"
  • Generous Was Tsungrai
  • Painful Bond
  • Resurrection Signet
  • Sunspear Resurrection Signet

Almost anything that will help you kill off the Imps will work.

or <pvxbig> [build prof=Any/A Sha=12][Deadly Paradox][Shadow Form][Optional][Optional][Optional][Optional][Shroud of Distress][Sunspear Rebirth Signet][/build] </pvxbig> Optional:

  • Vipers Defenses
  • Radiation Field
  • anything you want basically


  • Max armor of your profession. (Having at least 520hp helps.)
  • What ever you prefer. (High energy staffs would be most useful)


  • Once you zone into Ice Cliff Chasms, head North-west and you should see the first group of Ice Imps.
  • Kill them then head towards the resurrection shrine to the north to collect your Blessing from Ogg the Gruff.
  • Once you have obtained your blessing, head northwest FOLLOWING THE FROZEN RIVER and kill each group of Ice Imps along your way.
  • There are usually 5(Five) groups of Ice imps; Containing about 3-6 in each group.


  • Taking too much damage from Ice Imps' Spells
  • Lag
  • Windows Key


A lot of builds will work for this run. Spirit spammers, even hybrid spirit spammers, are usually the most reliable and can be done on any profession. It is best to find or even create your own build that you are fully comfortable running to perform this route. Have fun and be creative.


Ice Imps hit EXTREMELY low with their regular attacks making a 600 smite team useless while facing them. Their spells however, hit for rather high amounts of damage, as well as can shut down most casters by getting them stuck in stacked Maelstroms.

Mountain Team

Mountain and PE route (Red dots indicate Aloe group Spawns)

Mountain Tank

<pvxbig> [build prof=Mo/Rt pro=12 div=3 res=12][Protective Spirit][Spirit Bond][Vengeful Was Khanhei][Shield of Absorption][Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support]["Finish Him!"]["I Am Unstoppable!"][Balthazar's Spirit][/build] </pvxbig>

  • You can replace EBAS or "FH!" with almost any skills wanted such as...
    • Vengeful weapon
    • Pain Inverter
    • Castigation signet, ect...
  • You will need some sort of anti-knockdown for at least 10-15 seconds

Generic Mountain Tank

  • upon aggroing you're first group of enemies, precast your Anti-knockdown
    • gather up both groups of Mountain Pinesouls from the East and West of the path.
    • focus more on surviving than dealing damage; they will all die including the Aloes

      • also be aware of the Aloe groups popping up
  • Head towards Boreal Stations again, but be cautious of the Aloe group pop-ups
    • once the aloe groups do appear, immediately use your anti-knockdown and spirit bond (the PE spirit will soon be up to support you)
      • do NOT worry about protective spirit, as long as you have LA on you, you will out heal the damage
    • use SoA when ever you feel it is safe to use (when your anti-knock down is up, or you feel they are out of energy)
  • there will be a maximum of 2 groups of Mountain Aloes spawn on your run.
  • Keep heading towards Boreal Station killing anything that gets in your way until you reach the Snow Wurms.
