Farming for Jade Bracelets
- Suggested Farm #1: Leaving from The Marketplace into Wajjun Bazaar presents several large groups of Jade Brotherhood. There is a Statue of Lyssa located just outside of Wajjun Bazaar that can provide helpful Blessings while farming. The map shows the location of some groups of Jade Brotherhood,green route leads to Lian, Dragon's Petal a powerful Jade Brotherhood elementalist boss and the blue route leads to Shen, the Magistrate.
Threats & Recommended Skills
- Tactics: Interrupting the elementalist spells is very helpful. Blind is very useful against the Jade Brotherhood Knights
- Threats: Jade Brotherhood Mages can present some trouble with their Earth Magic spells. When they use Ward Against Foes to slow groups, then follow it with Double Dragon they can do quite a bit of PBAoE damage. If this is followed by the Jade Brotherhood Ritualist using Ancestors' Rage it can form a powerful spike. The Ritualists also use Tranquil Was Tanasen to prevent interruption allowing them to heal the Elementalists and the Jade Brotherhood Knights. The Jade Brotherhood Mesmers use Signet of Disruption to bypass skills like Shadow Form , Obsidian Flesh, and Spell Breaker. In mixed groups they can pose threats to a smaller group.
- Recommended Skills: Interrupt prevention is strongly advised. Also Anti-KD is helpful against the Mages.
All the groups on the routes can be farmed by a 600HP Monk with either hero or human Smiter. However, you should bring an anti-interrupt skill such as Mantra of Resolve because the Jade Brotherhood Mesmers can interrupt even through Spell Breaker and may interrupt key skills of your build,resulting in death.If you dont have Spell Breaker you should also consider bringing an anti-knockdown skill such as Dwarven Stability or "I Am Unstoppable!" to prevent knockdowns by Jade Brotherhood Mages. If you have trouble killing the Jade Brotherhood Ritualists you can also bring another damage-dealer with you, like a Spiteful Spirit Necromancer,it will speed up the killing greatly.
