  • Use Barkskin Icon Barkskin on cooldown as it is very short and will be available almost every pack.
  • Use line-of-sight to your advantage. This can be incredibly handy if there are multiple caster mobs that you wish to stack up and cleave together.
  • Use Skull Bash Icon Skull Bash and Incapacitating Roar Icon Incapacitating Roar actively to interrupt dangerous monsters.
  • Use the perks you pick up on the way as they are incredibly valuable.
