  • Chop
  • Thousand Axes - Hareth periodically spins around throwing axes. This skill has two components: a melee attack and ranged projectiles. Both are unblockable and deal considerable damage. The melee component can be easily avoided by stepping away or invulnerability. The axes can't be reflected or blocked by normal player skills, but they can be absorbed by the Shield Bubble created by the ancient golems unlocked by completing Destroy ley-line collectors to gather energy for the Rata Novus device. If there's no golem available to block the axes, constantly sidestepping left and right during the attack helps reducing the number of axes that hit.
