    Ok so this month has a max lights void watch campaign. I have an Almace that needs the bump to 99. What do I need to target to farm plates? I am assuming it is just pop and zerg?

    Oh Jesus and here I thought I was going to step away for awhile. I have over 700 VW stones or w/e they are. Decisions must be made.

    Wanna get some Phase Displacers from Ardrick in Jugner too as some of the fights you wanna farm can still be a pain solo and make sure you take from stock rather than the KI. Seems the biggest problem is finding a spawn not already camped by someone during this campaign though, then again i'm on Asura so this might not be as big an issue on other servers

    Wasn't there an addon to speed up the chest handling after the fight is over? Or was I dreaming?

    it's better tonight, wasn't any trouble to find a spawn point.

    ...except this is a no dropping fucking event. 22 kills, and i have every fucking weird random bit of junk that falls out of Aello's ass but not a single plate sack. that 8% is a haaaard 8% i guess?

  7. #927

    I was a bit luckier than that, think I had like 5 pouches from about 60 odd kills which is about what the drop rate says. Only got 40 with one of the pouches giving me 15 metal plates from that though so this grind is real.

    I've had a streak of more than 100 without pouches before. That was a fun day.

    What is the general consensus on suggested cells use for HMPs?

    the event wiki says just do the rubicund cells, referencing dev comments:

    https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Voidwatch_Guide

    did the fight 64 times, ended up with 29 plates out of i think 4 pouches. it's a fucking grind and i dunno how long i can keep it up. it's great that the fight takes, literally, a couple of seconds most of the time, and can be spammed endlessly (i have 4000+ stones), but fucking come on.

    Not sure I want to try. I need over 2000 HMPs but good luck finding a free spot on Asura...
    I think I haven't done VW in years.
    Heard now you can use stones directly without talking to the NPC every 6, right? But you still have to trade the cells every time I bet.

    that's right.

    but there's no reason not to team up with people; everyone has their own chest.

    Yeah, can change the option at the voidwatch NPCs so you don't have to keep going back. The cell trading/spoils retrieving/waiting for respawn takes up half the time when doing this.

    True if there's no open spots, but there's downsides. Even if it speeds up the fight marginally, then you're waiting on other people to get their spoils/trade cells, or if they're actually on top of it, then they might be popping before you can trade your cells. The event is great if you can only do a couple minutes at a time and will have a free spot, but I could make better money elsewhere.

    Sell me yours so I can finish mine! Pie cutter or another mythic is next, I think. I don't know.

    Abyssea or Voidwatch? Honestly not sure if Voidwatch even matters, just whack away.

    Deluges, Dark Designs, Latitude

    STP15, TPbonus 500, and TPbonus 500, obviously change those if you're running a ws that doesnt scale or using a magian offhand, Exortation if you're specifically skillchaining (likely solo)
