    Not to bash you upside the head, but for a "sampire" character, you have most everything you need already. Usually people are just trying to find the right fit in terms of their weaponry. Weaponry can really...make or break you.

    It might help if you give a rundown of what you're starting with here.

    Well currently im missing 3 of my 4 120s and i got a semi crappy suit and use a soul seeker so was just trying to figure out what to kill to get the gold for the power scrolls then the arte peices of my armor. for wepon thats not a issue i gave a smith thats almost at 120 im working on that will make my wepons
     
  4. So you say now. Wait until you actually try and make those weapons.

    To answer your question, I'd say Miasma if you can handle it. If not, then Trogs in the Painted Caves, or Fan Dancers in the Dojo.

    In addition if you can't handle the above, ogre lords give a fair amount of gold for the ease of killing and will help you gain skill as well.

    Ok ill go back to killing Miasma then thank you :) 12 million or Over 5000 Miasma to Go :coco:
     
  7. If making gold is your sole goal, then you'd be best off farming Dark Guardians in Doom for both gold and Daemon Bones. Collect as many as you can, do the Bone Daemon quest, then sell the gold skulls for 100k+ each. You can easily make a mil or more per day.

    Per day = 24 hours of playtime?

    For me, I like to farm named bosses in the back of the twisted weald. Irk, spite, guile, the two named spiders. They all drop a good amount of gold and I have a history of getting nice jewels off of em too. Irk goes down the slowest of them all but even he isn't that difficult. If you can isolate the two spiders thats the way to go. I 3 shot them with my arachnid slayer diamond mace and they spawn pretty quickly so the only real challenge is isolating them and looting them quickly enough.
     
  9. Not at all. I'd say around 3-4 hours to get the bones if you use something like a Dark Wolf summons so you have 4 that spawn at a time.

    How much do you think a set of dreadhorn keys would sell for during prime time?

    Only 100k? I would have thought more.

    Selling Keys? Not for one penny unless the person is a fool. Anyone who looks at them will see there is a timer on them...anyways.

    Quite frankly with the right weapon and/or slayer weapon you can EASILY rack up 1 mill or so in about 3 hours time. A lot of these places are near places you can recall into, which really made the BOS a silly reason to nerf them in the first place. Nerfing the bags of sending really made the quest a mute point...which is bad reasoning altogether to begin with.

    He's talking about selling them for usability NOT for collecting. People that can't or don't feel like keying.

    The main keys have a timer as well. That is even more of a waste of money. The timer on those is VERY short. Most any smart person can solo the Dread Keys with the right templates. Which there are more than just the sampire that can get those. But wait...yes of course. Laziness! So...maybe not!

    laziness is the mother of invention... and sometimes opportunity.

    Lets look at it this way.

    Through selling the mane and ingredients, any group which does a Dread Horn (same applies to all peerless) 150k-200k gold. Anything else that comes out of the Dread Horn is pure profit. So if I were going to sell DH keys during prime time, I'd probably start the prices at 150k. More on Atl during prime time, less on Napa during any time.
     
  21. If you're dieing at all against Miasma there's something wrong. Either weapon, tactics, or gear.

    Have you considered joining a faction and farming silver?

    I think thats the fastest way to make gold, you can make millions per session if you know a good spot and have your technique down.

    I'm in SL and kill silver serpents in 2 hits for 30 silver a time.

    The best thing about farming silver is that you have no need to loot each corpse as it goes straight into your pack. You can quite easily just farm farm farm and send silver to your bank regularly.

    Then set up a vendor in your house and drop runes marked "Cheap Silver"

    Eh. I die to miasma frequently (1 in 20 probably) but thats mainly a function of me trying to loot/talk on the phone/eat and kill the miasma. Looting is the biggest pain. Im always trying to look out for set pieces (im a collecter) but it makes looting ANNOYING.

    I think you pointed out your own main issue. While dying a lot...even a few times each hunting session is going to drain some gold, multi-tasking against difficult mobs isn't usually a great plan. With the fast spawn rate...etc., I don't think I would be eating or talking on the phone while hunting there. Not...if I wanted to LIVE.

    YA Miasma die easy unless one spawns close to me or targets me instantly and i dont get a honor off in time then the fight is long and drawn out. Also yes i have bad equipment and skills thats why i need the gold my resists are like 70/48/70/68/60 in vampire form and im using a soul seeker. Oh also exactly how does the swampy add dammage reduction or DCI? Im not sure wich and if it is DCI does it count towards the cap?
     
  28. This is where the tactics I mentioned come in. You need to stop fighting Miasma in the walled in area where it spawns. Drag it outside that area and kill it, that way when the next spawns you don't have to worry about being targeted. It also gives you time to loot as they spawn faster than you can loot them. I think you'll see your survival rate go way up using this method.


    An armored swampy (exceptional armor only) gives a 20% damage reduction.

    It is just a game sure. But if you are optimizing your money per hour then, dying isn't going to help. Like Connor said...it's all in your tactics. Not knocking the OP but...some people have poor tactics. It would not matter how long they planned a sampire.

    Need a better weapon than a soul seeker. Additionally you want a scorpion slayer or arachnid slayer. The point is to kill the mob fast, not have a poker tournament with it.
