    I think hiryus drop around 1600 gp each, if I recall correctly. The Hunter's Guide says they drop between 1500-1900 gp.

    Yamandons apparently drop 2000-2500 gold each.

    You might try using the Hunter's Guide advanced search feature and look for stuff that has level 5 fame and level 5 karma, or level 5 fame and level 5 negative karma and then check all the results. http://uo.stratics.com/database/search.php?db_content=hunters

    Best thing to kill for gold is probably Miasma's. Scorpion slayer weapon or book and it's fairly simple from there. Not to mention you can loot the t-chests (lvl 6 maps inside) for a t-hunter or just trash it unopened for turn-in pts. Each chest averages about 1200-1400 points. Minor arties drop as well. And it's a pretty decent respawn rate.

    Yep - use the advanced search feature on the top left - but once on the advanced search page - scroll to the bottom and look for the "Sort by" drop-down menu and select Gold.

    The top two are: Stygian Dragon and Dreadhorn at 8,000 to 10,000 gold.

    The highest "non-boss" is: Guile, Spite and Irk at 2,800 to 3,200 gold.

    The highest "not special named" seems to be:

    Renegade Changeling from the Ilshenar Level 7 T-map at 2,800 to 3,000.
    Leviathan from throwing a fabled fishing net at 2,600 to 3,000.
    Yamandon (Tokuno several places) at 2,000 to 2,500.

    If you are looking for a fast gold-farming area, I like to grab a spider slayer and hit the spider-area in the Dreadhorn Dungeon with Lady Lissith and Lady Sabrix. It's a fast respawn with both spiders giving 2,000 to 2,600 gold per kill.

    Undead Gargoyles in the Tomb of Kings are an easy kill and have 1100-1200 gold.

    Tazar, Would you share your technique on how to stay alive in the Dread Horn Dungeon killing the two named spiders. I can kill any one of the named Spiders or Changelings, but the constant spawn of the three named Changelings is death to me.

    Thanks, Katrena

    I play a mage on Atlantic so generally I am pre-casting explosion then hitting with a flamestrike. With good SDI and a spider-slayer Sabrix and Lissith are almost 1-hit kills with a flamestrike.

    It is difficult on Atlantic some times due to others running through stirring up the mobs - but generally I can just run in and go all the way to the southern tip of the swamp area and Irk, Guile and Spite will follow me down. I then invis and run back up to the spider area.

    I also generally drop a few Lissith Silk and Sabrix eyes just west of the spider area so that if anyone is farming keys they can grab them without dragging other monsters into the area where I am fighting.

    By definition town invasions are a poor indicator of what goes on normally.

    Why is this? Because town invasions by definition are not normal. They are invasions. There's kinda something else going on besides getting gold.

    And aside from that, there's the fact that if your shard is populated the gold spawn on any given corpse is going to be split between several players and thus, while the overall gold level might be good, your individual corpse's gold level is not likely to.

    This is a very different situation from out hunting, by one's self or with a group, for the specific purpose of looting the gold.

    Whether or not people loot gold during the invasions is not a good indicator, at all, of whether or not people loot gold under normal conditions.

    I think it's safe to say that many people habitually loot the gold from many of their kills, playing under most conditions.

    As to the actual question raised by the post: It occurs to me that I've never looked at the actual gold level so much as the spawn rate and the gold level in conjunction. If a monster gave 5k gold but only spawned infrequently it wouldn't be a good gold farming monster. Which is why the specific question posed is proving so difficult to answer. The biggest gold spawn on an individual creature I think is likely to be something that few people kill solely for the gold.

    Also depends on your template. Miasmas yield the most gold the quickest for my sampire - to kill miasmas faster was the original reason I made a sampire, to farm maps for my thunter, but then noticed the sampire was also pulling in 250k in gold in an hour

    Comes down to those that have to drag loot or right click loot recovery system.

    The best bang for your buck is the gargoyle explorer quest. During the hunt your collecting gold, leathers, curator quest items and some imbuing mats. Then there is the bag of goodies at the end with 4k+ gold, imbuing mats and chance at a rare book to add to your set. During the hunt there are the rare gear drops.

    ive got a sweet honey spot that i use to milk when i need to make gold fast.
    but im reluctant to share it.

    not because im greedy, but rather i fear that the day after i share it ill find a warrior in a Darkwood suit with a generic ladies name sitting there on every shard in game.
    i wouldnt mind this of course..... as long as they are there.....

    (and.... begin)
