    I promised to post the data after I farmed 10 daemon claws. Here it is without any comment:

    Spawn: Northwest Ter Mur, single fire daemon with instant respawn
    Limitations: Daemons might spawn on the lava which makes them unreachable (happened on two occasions, daemon flied to the land by itself after a while on both). Lava elementals, fiery gargoyles, headless ones and stone sliths are also present around the area.
    Time Spent: 64 minutes
    Template:Mystic (gargoyle, legendary skills, only Rising Colossus, Invisibility and Cleansing Winds spells are used)
    Fire Daemons killed: 55
    Daemon claws: 10 (from daemons # 9,22,23,27,29,30,33,52,54,55)
    Estimated Drop rate:20%
    Total Gold: 38,256 gold pieces
    Rising Colossi Dispelled: 5

    It's not that bad actually, but I think spending the same amount of time farming rats gives a lot more rare ingredients (Crystal Shards, Seeds of Renewal, etc...), which sell for over 100k each, not even accounting the chance of artifact, which you don't have if you farm claws in Ter Mur. Thus I don't think it's worth it to farm claws to sell them unless you can sell them for AT LEAST 100k each.

    I do not think the original post was about how much gold you can make per hour.
    Some people just prefer to get their own ingredients and do not buy them.

    Actually Nimuaq initially wanted to buy the claws but found them too expensives

    I didn't find them too expensive, fellow players perfectly explained and justified the price, I just had 800k total on all characters so I couldn't afford it. Maybe I should start selling some of the things I've bought for ridiculously high prices.

    I've spent most of the game time testing things lately, in this case I wanted to create a demon slayer bow with 10 tile range to see if the daemons can use breath attack that far, it turns out they cant fire breath that long and they don't deal much damage to that distance but it still takes too long (about 16 minutes) for an archer to solo them without the help of a bard and in one case we didn't find any document on the daemon's corpse (50% drop rate?).

    There are a lot of posts in UHall saying the documents are too hard to obtain or the daemons are too hard to kill, but Blackrock Golems were taking 40 minutes to kill for the same archer character on the previous event, they were non bardable and without any slayer, yet I didn't see that many complaints on it on the boards. Europa is relatively a crowded shard so I guess we will export these items to other shards in case they gain any real value (I highly doubt that but you never know). G.v.P previously posted on another thread that "Mesanna said killing golems (Blackrock Golems) from a boat is okay because they have a range attack" for the previous event but I'm still not sure if killing the daemons using range attack is legal. Does anyone have any idea on that?

    Why should be killing things using a legal ranged attack with a legal weapon
    be illegal? No boats in ter mur. Me thinks you need to get some sleep.
