Help! I can't use those skills because they're from the same category! (Turn On Elective Mode)

If you’re not allowed to put two skills on your bar because they’re from the same category – FEAR NOT! This isn’t a bug or a permanent in-game restriction. You simply have to CHECK ON ELECTIVE MODE, via Esc > Options > Gameplay > Elective Mode!

Binding Force Move to Mousewheel up & down is a value change that every player should make IMO. It prevents misclicks and skill misfires, and forces you to move to where otherwise an enemy might be.

Options & Notes:

  • The “any” slots are irrelevant and can even be yellows. There’s no “must” in that slot.
  • Can be completed with Invoker 6 and ALL YELLOWS (no supporting legendaries)
  • Thorns secondary stat is of course preferred, but the enemies are so weak you don’t need to have a full set of items with Thorns in the secondary.

Thorns of the Invoker Set Dungeon Location & Map

Where’s the Thorns of the Invoker Set Dungeon? It’s located at Act I New Tristram, the very start of the campaign!

  • Teleport to New Tristram
  • Follow the path leading you to the very start of the map!
  • To be more clear, remember the cliff you spawned in? Good ‘ol memories!

The Thorns of the Invoker Set Dungeon Map / Layout?

How to Beat & Master Thorns of the Invoker Set Dungeon

Map & Pathing

Familiarize yourself with the map first. A sample path is shown above.

  • Nothing notable here, just a large B!
  • I suggest pathing all the way up, then curving downwards to complete the B.
  • You’ll pass the center of the B twice, allowing for a stress-free clear.
  • Other than that, the map layout shown above should be enough!

Tips & Explanations

Objective: Get hit by goat spears 

Yeah, so my only advice here is to, literally, stand around and do nothing. I forgot if 1 guy can spear you multiple times, but it was never really a problem.

Just make sure every spear thrower tags you before killing them. STAND STILL AND GET HIT ON PURPOSE. Sounds like silly advice, haha.

Objective: Kill Elites with Consecration+Iron Skin

As advertised, the elite MUST BE INSIDE Consecration’s effect, then on Iron Skin. Really simple, and it does teach a valuable lesson of saving Iron Skin for elites!

The only problem with this objective? You might be slightly too strong, haha. If they die WAY TOO QUICKLY just unequip some things, but you’ll need some extreme power before it happens. We’re talking about dying within the blink of an eye type of power.

Mastery is so easy in this dungeon no further advice is needed. Lord Commander is taken in the passive just so you can move around quicker. Norvald’s is an option if in the small chance you’re actually struggling.
