    I would like to use my time productively, and gather some info for us SPers and see if there really is a need for us to receive buffed loots from creatures. My objective is to hunt high end creatures that are able to be defeated by a lone tamer without discord, which means no peerless, no champs, etc. I'd like some input on what the community would like for me to farm, and I will gather data in the form of:

    Money made per hour
    Best 5 items dropped(This will be done subjectively, but seeing as how I have a good understand of what is uber in PvP and Pvm I will do my best)

    These are likely going to be my conditions:

    -Dreadhorse/Beetle
    -1500+ luck
    -Tamer/Necro/Mage Character


    On that note, does anything else think SP should receive that same extra bonus applied to excp items to enhancing/imbuing items?

    Rather than the best 5 'subjective' items, maybe just note the best 5 intensity items.

    Unless you want them to start weighting properties for specific templates.

    Noted. I will also take note of highest intensities.

    I personally think it's worthwhile taking a tamer with a GD. Up the damage with necro curses. Given that I think that's what many people might hunt with.

    I thought beetles and dreadmares were each 3 slots?

    But, yes, this sounds really interesting. But perhaps don't announce where we should farm -- pks? I'm not really sure about that tbh!

    The Dreads, like the Nightmares, are only two slots :)

    Sorry but no.

    The dread warhorses take up 3 slots. At least mine does... :p

    Used to farm the named spiders up in the twisted weald with a Cu, you can do it with disco for maximum speed, they used to drop the same number of items as a swoop but die in 2-3 hits and instantly respawn. Anything over a certain fame level will drop items of a maximum intensity so it comes down to how to get the most items to drop in as short a time as possible and after a lot of experience the spiders were the best in the game at that time, so much so it was impossible to check all the loot manually and keep up.

    Towards the end i was experimenting with using a mage bow and bushido instead of discord (so they didn't die so quick) to work perfection on them before killing, all in all over 3k+ luck and the results were pretty amazing also the marty drop rate was pretty awesome. Seen lots of peerless quality items with 4-5 properties all over 90% intensity on top of that you could figure in maybe 350-500k just from the gold per hour.

    Siege should have a higher drop rate. That would really be helpful.
