Any good strategy for getting 100 arcane scroll on the grotesque mage boss?


As on Asmonath: do not use ults.


Izold, Rosaline, Baden, Lucius, Shemira. No ults until 10 seconds left in fight.


Deactivate the Auto mode when fighting the Grotesque Mage, and only activate your heroes’ ultimate skills 5 times at most. Having Rosaline and/or the twins in your team helps, and other than that fill your team with heroes that can deal a good amount of damage even without unleashing their ultimates.
