Strategy[edit | edit source]
Attacking anything within the circle or any of the Twig Blights standing around in the near woods directly or indirectly (e.g. Aura of Radiance) will start the encounter.
Slowing the Twig Blights down or stopping them gives the group more time for killing them. Players with any Item Level can accomplish this task.
Unless your group is really well coordinated and fast in killing all casting druids, it might help to have some players interrupt/disable them as soon as they spawn.
