Rasputin Farming - 4 Rounds - Final Bastion (2024)

Rasputin is the only source of some of the best gear in Polaris (check out our Rasputin gear guide if you’d like to to see for yourself!).

We wanted to share a 4-round approach that we’ve found effective. ÂWe buff a hitter to take out Rasputin on round 4 while another wizard takes out the minions in the second round. ÂIt’s worked consistently and doesn’t require a lot of concentration.

We also list an alternative strategies (healing first round) below, since variety is the spice of life!

Team

  • Rasputin Farming - 4 Rounds - Final Bastion (1)The hitter can be any school, assuming they have sufficient damage and pierce (see below).
  • At least one wizard, which we’ll call the Minion Killa, must have 6%+ pierce (ideally 21%+ pierce) and a 4-pip AoE. ÂIt’s helpful if this wizard is a different school than the hitter.
  • At least one wizard must have elemental or spirit blades trained (depending on the school of the hitter). ÂThis can be the same wizard as the Minion Killa. ÂIdeally two wizards have them trained.
  • That’s it!

Hitter Damage Boost and Pierce

Rasputin Farming - 4 Rounds - Final Bastion (2)We’ve listed the damage boost needed by the hitter below, assuming you use the buffs recommended later in the article.

If your hitter has 21%+ pierce, we assume you use a ColossalÂenchant. ÂOtherwise,Âwe assume you will use an Unstoppable Treasure Card enchant for the 15% pierce.

If yourÂhitter is under 20% pierce and you want to use Colossal, you’ll need to add roughly twice the difference to the damage listed (e.g., if their pierce is 17%, you’ll need to add 6% (20% – 17% = 3% * 2 = 6%).

Lastly, if you use weaker blades than the ones listed, you’ll need to add roughly twice the difference to the damage listed too (e.g., if you use a 30% blade instead of the 40% listed in the guide, you’ll need to add 20%).

Rasputin Farming - 4 Rounds - Final Bastion (3)Rasputin Farming - 4 Rounds - Final Bastion (4)Buffs

You’ll typically need to buff the hitter 10-11 times. ÂWe’ll use the term “tri-blades” to refer to elemental or spirit blades and “tri-traps” to refer to elemental or spirit traps.

There are many combinations of buffs you can use. ÂWe’ve listed our recommendations and other options below.

  • Hitter Buffs
  • Recommended Buffs
  • Other Buffs

Hitter Buffs

For the hitter, we recommend:

  • Trained School Blade (30-40%)
  • Trained Sharp School Blade (40-50%)
  • Item School Blade (35-45%; given by various amulets)

RecommendedÂBuffs

For teammates, we’d recommend the following spells, since they should be easy to obtain and provide the most boost. ÂThese 7 buffs plus 3 for the hitter will get you 10.

  • Item Sharp Tri-Blade (45%; Jewel of the Apiary Amulet)
  • Trained Sharp Tri-Blade (45%)
  • Tri-Blade Treasure Card (40%)
  • Trained Tri-Balde (35%)
  • Item Tri-Blade (35%; Elemental – Amulet of the Mouse Scout; Spirit – Charm of the Fierce Mantis)
  • Balanceblade (30%; Jewel of the Apiary Amulet)
  • Item Tri-Trap or Tri-Trap Treasure Card (30%;ÂElemental – Locket of the Quiet One Amulet; Spirit – Charm of the Fierce Mantis

Note that if your hitter is the same school as your Minion Killa, don’t use traps for buffs!

Other Buff Options

We’ve listed some other buff options below. ÂYou can use one of these as a replacement or an additional buff. ÂIn our calculations above, we assume any buffs after 10 are 30%

  • Pet Sharp Tri-Blade (45%)
  • Sharp Dark Pact (40%)
  • Potent Tri-Trap (35%)
  • Sharp or Item Sharp White Blades from Balance (30-35%)
  • Pet Dragonblade (30%)
  • Tri-Trap (25%)

Note that if your hitter is the same school as your Minion Killa, don’t use traps for buffs!

Decks

Before the battle, we suggest that your team figure out which buffs each wizard will cast to ensure no overlap.

  • Hitter Deck
  • Teammate Decks

Hitter Deck

The hitter’s main deck should have:

  • Hit that requires shadow pip (e.g., Glowbug for Storm)
  • Hit that doesn’t require a shadow pip (e.g., Sirens for Storm)
  • Colossal
  • 2 School Blades
  • 1 Sharpen Blade
  • 1 Item School Blade

The hitter’s side deck should have:

  • TC Unstoppable

Teammate Decks

The main decks for the other wizards:

  • 3-4 agreed-upon buffs (Minon Killa can have 2-3)
  • Feint (and Potent Trap if you have it)
  • For Minion Killas: 2 4-pip AoEs
  • For Healers: trained or item “victory heal” card (since there areÂno health wisps at the sigil)

The sideÂdecks for the other wizards:

  • TC Feint (if not in main deck)
  • For Minion Killa: 2 TC Unstoppable
  • For Dispeller: TC Melt
  • TC PierceÂ(not used much)
  • TC Cleanse Charm (not used much)

Strategy Details

When you enter Horizon Hold, have the hitter port to their house and then use Dungeon Recall. ÂThis will make them last in the battle.

One wizard should be assigned to cast Melt (Ice Dispel) onÂRasputin, to avoid his 7-pip group Frostbite withÂstun. ÂIf you are first in the battle, we suggest casting it second roundÂ(or later if he uses his pips first round). ÂIf you are second in the battle, we suggest casting MeltÂfirst round.

For round 1, everyone should blade the hitter (except if the Dispeller casts Melt).

Rasputin Farming - 4 Rounds - Final Bastion (5)For round 2:

  • The Minion Killa should cast a 4-pip AoE to take out the minions (hence their incredibly creative name!). ÂWe suggest enchanting it with Unstoppable to minimize fizzles
  • Trap Rasputin if you have any traps “assigned” you
  • Otherwise, blade the hitter

For round 3, everyone should blade the hitter.

For round 4:

  • Your healer should heal (usually Rebirth or Unicorn)
  • Your hitter should hit
  • One wizard should feint
  • The other wizard should buff the hitter or, if the hitter is not using an AoE, cast a 4-pip AoE before the feint (this is why we suggest having 2 Wizards with 4-pip AoEs and feints).

If anything goes wrong, your Minion Killa can cast a 4-pip AoE on round 4 and you can take out the Rat in a turn or two.

ÂStrategy Alternatives

Rasputin Farming - 4 Rounds - Final Bastion (6)

Storm HitterÂ3-Rounds

You canÂsometimes finish theÂbattle in 3 rounds if the following conditions are true:

  • You have a Storm hitter with 97%+ damage and 31%+ pierce
  • You use a potent feint
  • Your team has first turn (otherwise you will get wildÂbolts on round 3)

In this case, the Minion Killa would buff on turn 2 and the hitter would hit on turn 3. ÂYou can either cast melt or heal but not both.

We’ve typically preferred the 4-round approach since it’s a bit safer.

Healing Minions

If 10 buffs is enough for your hitter, some people like this strategy as well:

  • Round 1: The first 3 wizards heal (e.g., Sprite). ÂThe hitter blades.
  • Round 2:Âall wizards buff
  • Round 3: all wizards buff
  • Round 4: buff, heal, feint, hit
