Due to the Combat Triangle, it is recommended to clear the Earth God Dungeon (dungeon).svg Earth God Dungeon with Magic (skill).svg Magic because the enemies here are mostly Combat.svg Melee, including the final boss Terran (monster).svg Terran.

Being stunned when an enemy hits you causes you to take 30% additional damage. The idea here is to get out of the stun effect of Terran (monster).svg Terran faster than he can attack if you're under the effect of his slow (+33% attack interval inflicted by Grasping Roots). Weapons with a 2.9 second attack interval will get away in time, however weapons with a 3.0 second interval will not without the use of interval reduction bonuses; specifically, 3.0 second interval weapon need to be reduced to 2.9 seconds or faster. Therefore, it is only safe to use Cloudburst Staff (item).svg Cloudburst Staff while using Surge I (aurora).svg Surge I or Surge II (aurora).svg Surge II at this point of progression.

The safest spell to use while maintaining a decent adjusted clear time is likely the 20k-accuracy Gust (spell).svg Gust, with a wand and a shield equipped.

Worth noting that using Cloudburst Staff (item).svg Cloudburst Staff, even with Surge I (aurora).svg Surge I or Surge II (aurora).svg Surge II, will likely far outpace any other spell/weapon combo. However, be aware that this will cost a lot of runes, and running out of them will put you in danger of dying. Check combat sim to see how many runes you will spend per hour, and make plenty of extras to survive for as long as necessary.

Owning Otto (pet).svg Otto or wearing Elder Crown (item).svg Elder Crown or Sand Treaders (item).svg Sand Treaders in the Passive Slot will reduce your interval sufficiently enough to avoid the need to spend Air Rune (item).svg Air Runes on Surge Auroras, making this particular method effectively foolproof. You can use the Fury II (aurora).svg Fury II Aurora instead for better adjusted clear times if you meet one or more of these requirements.

Any setup you use needs to be checked with the Combat Simulator to be sure of its efficacy for you.

It may be helpful to check if you can idle the dungeon with the Combat Simulator. Can I Idle may be misleading in the amount of DR you need. 'If' your attack interval is 2.9 or lower with a staff, or if you are using a wand, you can uncheck the Status Damage checkbox as you will not be taking stun damage from any of these enemies.

Use Silver Diamond Ring (item).svg Silver Diamond Ring, Infernal Cape (item).svg Infernal Cape, and Dragonfire Shield (item).svg Dragonfire Shield if you don't have enough DR.

Ring of Wealth (item).png Ring of Wealth or Aorpheat's Signet Ring (item).svg Aorpheat's Signet Ring can be used if you don't have the Warlock Ring (item).svg Warlock Ring, but the adjusted drop time is worse with them.

Fury of the Elemental Zodiacs (item).svg FEZ is good but not mandatory.

If you have unused Water Chest (item).svg Water Chests, you might want to open them for the Magic Wand (Elite) (item).svg Magic Wand (Elite).

Maximized Farming

The rest of this guide is NOT for your first clear, your average clear, or even your first 100 clears. This is purely to maximize scrolls for any missing items. This will assume 99 in all skills, access to nearly all weapons and items in the game, and access to all DR and HP pets. This assumes you are (unless otherwise noted) using an optimal Agility setup, are using your best dps prayers, your best summoning synergy, and are using Diamond Luck Potion IV (item).svg Diamond Luck Potions

Magic

This build uses Water Surge (spell).svg Water Surge or Water Wave (spell).svg Water Wave (slightly reduced rune cost), Anguish III (curse).svg Anguish III, and Fury II (aurora).svg Fury II.

To use this method, you need to have an attack interval of 2.9 or lower. This is achieved the easiest in the end game with Otto (pet).svg Otto, or alternatively with Surge I (aurora).svg Surge I or Surge II (aurora).svg Surge II.

This achieves around 26 to 27 scrolls per hour, depending slightly on your Astrology (skill).svg Astrology bonuses.
