    From start to finish of a Bane/Ophidians run, how many Crystalline Blackrock can you loot on average?

    Just curious as to whether it is more efficient just mining them or looting them at the event.

    I used to be able to loot 5-10 on Europa, Now I'm lucky if I get 1 per run.

    20 or so, probably more. Never really counted but I have 12 stew and about 150 CBR atm. I will do an actual count during my next run through.

    Ok, just did a run through and got 50. But I was being nice and letting a few ophidians get dragged off by other people ;).

    popps this sort of question on Stratics just opens a can of worms. There are folks in UHall that love to wind you up. It wouldn't surprise me to see someone post 75-100 just to get you going and any of the other folks that feel they aren't getting their share. You know the answer to your supposed question before you even ask. It is FAR easier to get these at the event than to mine them. But if you feel so strongly that the looting isn't fair for you then try going to the Yomatsu mines and kill some dull copper elementals for them. Even that is faster than mining them.

    OR, you could come back here tomorrow and start another thread with some other twist about how you can't get what you're after as easy as you think you should.

    I average about 75-100 per run soloing, just for our favorite poster.

    I agree tho, you answer too little (judging by his personal opinion) the OP whines the drop should be increased or drops directly into backpack, you post too many he also whines because he couldnt get so many and he wasnt happy because PBR didnt drop directly into his backpack.

    Just a tip to anyone who reads this.

    If 90% of the shard is fighting Ophidians, and 10% of the shard is fighting the Bane Chosen.
    Which side will you get more blackrock from? :)

    I average 50 per run solo, but I also do the event in Fel so I solo quite frequently.

    I soloed the Ophidian spawn yesterday in Fellucia from start to finish and got a little bit less then 90, I personally think that in under pop shards fel is the way to go, just be sure to carry a bag of sending if you get raided by reds or if a thief shows up (they are stealable and pretty easy ones as well)

    I've gotten two and have 2500 bane enemy points. I get lots of gold. Guess I am not a good harvester of this material.

    I collect between 5-10 Crystalline Blackrock per round when many players are around ........ on Europa at normal times.
    Most people do not see them or do not collect them it seems.

    My personal best was 21 and half of that was from me soloing the first step then people started coming.

    Usually get around 7
     
  20. I prefer Samuel Adams. A keg of it would be nice.

    There are few branded beers that I would consider lower than PBR. Pearl and Lone Star come to mind.

    Dont compare a quality product like Samuel Adams to it please.

    My best was 20, when I was the only Ophidian-loyal (killing Bane) compared to 5 Bane-Loyal players. I would work each spawn up to Bane Dragons before the Bane folk won and I would have to start over.

    Results per-enemy-type:
    Bane Dragons: 10
    Hell Hounds: 5
    "Human": 5

    I assume that I missed a few from the human types.

    My worst results was 0.

    I've only done about 6 rounds through the war.
