House Cannith Challenges

Today I will go over some steps to get you started in the right direction to all that the wonderfull House Cannith has to offer. These challenges are unlimited in use for VIP but dont let that stop you from reaping the rewards. Once a day with each character you have can stop by Kariya Vannis and recieve one challenge token good for one entry into any of the challenges.
 She resides straight ahead once inside House Cannith go up a flight of steps and she stands off center to the right of the huge statue. Once you pick up you challenge token I would suggest starting off with Kobold Island: Kobold Chaos. At level 4 this is fairly simple and an easy challenge to solo. Due to the way the dungeon scaling works I find it more rewarding to solo these runs then with a group. When in a group you not only have more baddies but they become stronger in level as well. This includes taking a hire into the challenge according to my resulting experiments with these challeneges. I will start off by explaining my simple and effective tactic for completeing this challenge. In the challenge there are 4 small extractors and 3 large extractors. These extractors need to be turned on with mechanical parts aquired from killing kobolds within the map. Dont worry they have small camps set up all over the place just hunt one of the camps down and kill them. You should by now have some mechanical parts to use in turning on the first extractor. Start off small and dont even worry about the large extractors untill you get the hang of running the smalls a couple times. Once you turn on the first extractor head to the next one on your way killing any kobolds you find. I would not reccommend messing with there little altars just yet as it will not allow any of them to respawn in that area. You wil need more kobolds in your circling runs for more mechanical parts. These mechanical parts come in handy not only for turning on the extractors but for purchassing cannons from the extractors themselves. I place one cannon at each small extractor. Play with the placement to see what works best as an onslaut of baddies will come to attack the extractors and turn them off. Continue running in a big circle to each extractor killing kobolds on the way making sure to protect and have all your extractors running.

Be warned there will be random red named mini bosses popping off at this point. Once you have aquired enough shards you can then use them to upgrade your extractors to collect more shards faster. Make sure you upgrade each of the small extractors and continue protecting your investment. Now that you have the small extractors upgraded and cannon placements near each, this would be a good time to hunt down one of the large extractors. These are usually protected by a red named boss only one when you solo but more when in team. Kill the boss and any other baddies before turning on the large extractor. at this point i would check the timer on the challenge if there is less than a minute left I wouldnt turn on the large extractor and keep protecting the smalls untill time runs out. Depending on how many shards you have collected you will be rewarded Crude Talismans at 24% of your total score so the more shards you collect the more Talismans you get. These can then be traded at the reward vendors for gear and goods. I expecially like the boosting potions that help increase Exp, Slayer Count, and Guild Renown which only cost 150 in rewards. Of course there is alot of really nice gear here to but that will take some time and many runs to get and inprove through upgrades. At least now you have a starting point and the know how to acquire the daily tokens. You can collect these Challenge Tokens each day weather you run the challenges or not and save them when you have enough you can spend a whole day runiing challenges. Good luck and happy questing.
