We havent had a chance to test this and get that 3rd chest yet but on our next official run we will and I think it will work. This is not a glich , exploit or bannable offence, its just comon sense when looking at how this place is laid out.

We do the bear, then eagle (normal gauntlet, no tricks).

From the eagle you jump off the cliff down to the lake that held back by a dam. You can ride your mount across the top of the dam and stay mounted.

Right at the end of the top of the dam you will have a pack of lynx's 1 big one and several cubs. Clean out that pack then watch for the pat.

This pat has 2 trolls and 2 cubs in it. Mark it with somthing so you can keep an eye on it. Once it pats away from you, hug left and hop thru the window of the hut thats right there. Then hop out the hut thru the other window on the other side.

You have to clear out one pack with 2 trolls and several cubs. Then from there you hug left along the outside of the lynx's chamber and your at the pat with 1 troll and 2 gators along the waters edge.

This saves you roughly 4 packs of trash.

Im not sure how this would work for a 4 chest bear run, were still having issues getting a consistant 1 shot on the dragonhawk, so for now were going with a 3 chest attempt each week.

Hope this has helped

I think this is the standard path that everyone follows or maybe I dont understand which packs you are talking about.

The path we use is over the dam
kill the Lynx (elite + 6 or so reg)
Avoid pat - jump through the window.
mark the 2 Croc and Troll pat (dont kill them)
Jump in the water and swim around them to the end of the path.
Kill the hidden lynx group
Kill the 2 Troll Pat
kill the next hidden lynx group
Kill the next 2 troll pat

Are you saying that any of the above are avoidable?

Yeah, that's the normal approach for skipping packs, if going Nalorakk --> Akil'zon --> Halazzi.

The only entrance to Jan'alai's section is from the ramp past Nalorakk. So you'd lose a few minutes to travel, if you tried to head there just after Halazzi.

The 4-chest approach is Akil'zon --> Nalorakk --> Jan'alai --> Halazzi, mainly for this reason. Minimal time wasted in transit, and you're still able to skip most of the same packs.

Ya tonight we found out you can skip all the front packs to the lynx except that elite +6 or so right as u enter the area from the dam.

From there we hugged along the lynx's chamber and killed the 1 troll with 2 gators.

I did not know about swiming to avoid that pack tho.

Does spending all that time swiming around really save you that much time for 1 x3 pack? Especially if you dont have water walking cause we dont use a shammy?
