An experimental device has enraged various creatures around Fionnghuala Scratch in Timberline Falls. Defend the skritt sentries stations outside the scratch until the researchers can shut down the device.

— In-game description

Scratch Sentry Defense is a guild challenge where the guild has to protect three skritt sentries who are under attack from four waves of various foes, such as spiders, drakes, jotun, and ettin. The skritt have discovered a device that, when turned on, enrages nearby mobs who are coming to kill the skritt. All three sentries must be kept alive throughout the challenge or the guild will fail. Enemies arrive from three tunnels to the northeast, northwest, and south.

Strategies[edit]

Each of the different entryways has a different combination of enemies to fight. The northwest deals with jotun and some drakes, the northeast deals mainly with spiders, and the south deals with ettin and a few rock dogs. The waves of enemies range from normal to champion, getting progressively more difficulty as the challenge goes on.

  • Given that the sentries are so far apart, it is best to split up into multiple groups. Three groups are preferable, although the northern two are close enough that a good mob can move between them.
  • While you do not want to confront the waves right at the sentries, since if any die you fail, you do not want to be too far ahead of them since there are a few other enemies in the cave that can also kill them. Always keep at least one player near the sentries to alert everyone and save them in this situation.
  • Bring along a good amount of crowd control to help against any champs.
