Start: Locked Gates

There are two ways to do this. For the faster way you require White Mantle Portal Device. The normal way takes much longer but needs nothing.

Fast way
Guardian skip
Guardian skip 2
Warrior skip
Revenant skip
Thief skip
Normal way (slower)
PreparationThe best way - as usual - is to stack Stealth on the platform before jumping down and not killing a single mob. Clarify this before running ahead and assign people for the roles below. Standing on the first pressure plate grants access to the second pressure plate, the second pressure plate grants access to the console room and the two pressure plates in the console room grant access to the console locker. A player needs about 20 seconds to activate the final console without interruption.
The First Pressure PlateThe best option is to let the most 'useless' class walk up with a little head start (usually the Warrior). The rest of the party should keep Stealth up and run through the open gate below immediately.
The Second Pressure PlateThis is usually done by an Elementalist who teleports up from below while the others keep up Stealth. Other option is Thief who can even come back easily for the console room using Shadow Return or Portal Entre respectively. Activating the second pressure plate permanently opens the first door.
The Console RoomTwo people without special abilities should step on the two pressure plates to open the console locker. They are also responsible for keeping aggro from the opener, especially the spawning Veteran Dredge next to the locker. Now for the actual console, Ash Legion Spy Kit and other Stealth sources are very strong. It should be activated by someone who's able to block the Knockback from the locker closing, so the other two people can step off the pressure plates and protect the opener from the spawning mobs. The opener should indicate the step off in chat to time it with block skills. The whole party can do /gg after the console is done, but it is not necessary.

Take Lightning Flash or Arcane Shield when activating the console.

Shield of Courage, "Advance!" and Hallowed Ground block the console Knockback.

Use the smoke field from Black Powder or Smoke Screen to stack Stealth. Hide in Shadows and Shadow Refuge combined with Meld with Shadows provide enough Stealth to completely activate the console.

Use Smoke Cloud from your Smokescale pet to stack Stealth.

Rifles or Bombs path Random

After resurrecting, skip the mobs with Stealth and the guns or nine bombs to destroy the gate.

On the rifles path you lose all your endurance and therefore you are unable to dodge. Walk to the gate with an equipped rifle and avoid the orange AoEs on the ramp. If you get hit by an AoE the rifle is no longer usable and you have to pick up a new one. Use the rifle skill 1 to damage the gate. Note that using a portal with a new rifle causes it to become unusable. Only use a portal to get back from the gate.

On the bombs path, be sure to take the Concealing Dust at the begin and at the end to permanently keep Stealth up on yourself. Same applies if you gain aggro of any mob, just walk into a Stealth zone.

**You can use portals and blinks/teleports with bombs**

Cast Shadow Refuge for immediate Stealth.

Champion Rabsovich

When you destroy the door, you will reach an annoying boss. There's really no trick with him apart from breaking his defiance bar as often as possible. If needed, do /gg afterwards to reset your wasted cooldowns.

Skip here by one of the classes below:

Guarian skip to last boss, same for Ranger and Warrior
Thief skip to last boss

Dredge Powersuit or Rampaging Ice Elemental Random

If you did not skip, stack Stealth and skip towards the Endboss together.

After loosing potential aggro of the mobs from the corridor, pull the boss to the next lava bucket, trigger it to inflict Superheated for 10x damage and nuke. Stay on the boss as long as possible before moving to the next bucket but pay attention to his Mending heal skill, which can be interrupted by simply attacking him as long as the Superheated debuff is up.

The most deadly skills here are the Bombs from the Dredge Powersuit (they spawn slightly away from him) and Shatterstone (dropping ice shards on every player) and Freeze Row from the Ice Elemental (small delayed Ice-AoEs in a V-Shape which explode after 2.75s - unblockable).

Teleport to the lava buckets from below with Infiltrator's Arrow.
