Arcanist Doan

Arcanist Doan

You can farm the boss Arcanist Doan in Scarlet Monastery, he drops Hypnotic Blade (sells for 1 gold) and Illusionary Rod (sells for 2 gold). He also drops Robe of Doan and Mantle of Doan (40 silver).

You should be about level 40.

Arcanist Doan is level 37, located in the far right Scarlet Monastery instace, it is the boss you have to kill to get the scarlet key. Just Stealth directly to him, avoiding all the other mobs.

Strategy to kill him:
He’s immune to cheap shot, so ambush or garrot him. He spams Arcane Explosiona lot, which hits you for 200 damage, so it is good to have a lot of HP. When his hit points reaches 50%, he’ll put up a blue barrier and charges up Detonation, you need to get to the other side of the room fast before it hits you for about 800 damage. You can avoid this by engaging the fight when he walks to a corner of the room. When he starts casting Detonation, you have around 5 seconds to bolt to the other side and dodge it. An important part during this portion is to use first aid while he’s busy casting Detonation. When he is finished, you should just run around a little for your first aid
to finish up before confronting him again. Now just hack at him, use a potion if needed, until he
dies.

He will drop 2 items:
– a Hypnotic Blade/Illusionary Rod
– Mantle of Doan/Robe of Doan.

Which is nearly 2g per round. It takes about 5 minutes for this whole sequence.
