Rending Deluge is best hunted in Sih Gates

There are several Craklaw in Sih Gates, with a safe camp and quick respawn.

Craklaw Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
Craklaw 100+ Sih Gates

To get to camp use a waypoint to warp to the main camp in Foret de Hennetiel, walk north to the zone and enter Sih Gates. Proceed North to your camp in one of the side tunnels off of H-9. There are Twitherym in the area that will aggo by sight. Take care to avoid them.

Pull your mobs into your safe camp and proceed to feed them TP, and wait for the move. Thanks to the fact that all the attacks that make have an AOE aspect you cannot keep shadows up, so mind your HP, and take proper precautions. Sundering Snip can cause a lot of hurt, so stun it.

Wait for the move and then kill. No need to keep one alive if they are stingy with the move, there is a ready supply of them in the camp.

The spell can be soloed, but a duo or small team works best.
