Start the round with Resurrect so that you earn money faster. Use inexpensive weapons and never purchase more than $200 of ammunition. When you have $2,000, buy Gust. You will be able to tear the enemy up when trying to get the Artifact, and while they are trying to capture. Continue with weapon until you have enough to purchasee Strangle. From this point on, quick captures will be easy. To get an easy capture, first start the round ready with a weapon and magic powers set to comfortable slots. Run up the ramp from the Ventilation Platform/Transition Tower, then cast Strangle on the enemy. Exit to the lower bridge. Jump off to the lower bridge, cast Gust at ground to absorb damage from landing, grab the Artifact, and jump off lower bridge. Now make a run for the second enemy exit below the lower bridge, twenty feet away from the one you should have cast Strangle on. It should only be about seven seconds into the match. A couple people should be there, if any. Make your way toward the entrance to the Lower Garden/Satellite Relay and cast Strangle again on the Doorway to keep followers out. Grab the Artifact, climb up the ladder, and make a run for the scoring area. It should be about fifteen to twenty seconds into the match. As long as you are an elf you should be running fast enough to beat your enemies to the area.
