Korshek's group includes several Roaring Ethers and at least one other Djinn. There are also up to three satellite groups, each consisting of more Djinn and Roaring Ethers. In hard mode, Ruby Djinn can hit very hard with Liquid Flame (over 200 damage) and Korshek follows with Searing Flames which can deal over 250 damage against 60 armor rating characters. This means, even with no death penalty, the entire party can be wiped in two to three hits, as these are AoE attacks. Consider getting the Shielding Branches blessing from the Melandru's Watcher outside of Tihark Orchard to reduce the damage caused by Korshek and Ruby Djinn.
 Skill recommendations
- Countering Searing Flames
There are several techniques to effectively counter Searing Flames:
- Bring skills that interrupt or inflict Dazed.
- Use Frigid Armor to prevent being set on fire.
- Signet of Humility will prevent Searing Flames from being cast; Diversion will disable it for an extended period.
- The boss will quickly kill itself while hexed with either Pain Inverter or Spoil Victor.
- Other skills
- Ward Against Elements or Ward Against Harm will reduce the elemental damage.
- Winter converts all elemental damage to cold damage, which deals more damage to Ruby Djinns.
- Extinguish and Breath of the Great Dwarf remove Burning from all party members.
- Frozen Soil will prevent the Roaring Ethers from using Resurrection Signet.
- The ethers are the only fleshy foes in Korshek's group, so it does not help much to bring skills that cause Bleeding, Disease, or Poison; similarly, skills that exploit corpses are ineffective for this battle.
