    went in tonight on my 120 disco tamer and set to the swoops.

    wanted to see how bad they where.
    (my memory is bad so i forget things)

    disco.
    kill.
    vet x 2 maybe 3.
    swoop dead in 1 minute.

    i was very supirsed that there still isnt lines for the swoops.
    considering they are a peerless boss and they pay hella good.
    they are by far one of the easiest.
    well.... after the thrasher.
    and coil.

    but then youd have to watch out for the abssessy thingy
    *cold shiver*

    but seriouslly, swoops arnt that bad.
    am i missing a reason why they where abandoned?

    Well, on Napa doesn't seem like anyone uses disco, I know I'm like the only disco tamer in my guild, and unfortunately disco isn't high enough for Swoops yet or I'd be there at least atempting to kill em.

  3. Because players can make a LOT more money elsewhere.

    I can kill stuff that drops up to 1800g in a couple seconds. It takes me 10+ seconds to kill swoops and they sometimes fly up on the rocks, which forces me to wait for them to fly down.

    Simply put, swoops are tough enough that you can get better loot farming things that are more dangerous to farm. Swoops are very safe to farm, so they give worse loot than stuff that is less safe to farm.

    I use my discord tamer (on Napa) on Miasma's with a mare rune combo and they drop fast. Never tried swoops because they were always camped but now I should try them.

    My dexxer can take them down pretty fast as well.

    Not sure 10 secs but well within a minute.
     
  6. Bedlam named undead. I love them. Wonderful gold and it's just a step to get outside and recall to the bank with loot and recall back. All that running for the Swoop means I'm not likely to kill them often. Though I do take my pack in there and slaughter them every now and then. Still see the occasional fighter there as well as other tamers on Chessy.

    bah.

    a cu and disco and that black gattor Thrasher.
    5 second kill and pays high.

    but you still cant beat the loot off a swoop with a 2000 + luck suit on.
