    By my understanding you have to knock out a Shame elemental guardian within an hour. For those who farm them for Whetstones, how long do you have to wait after you kill a guardian in order to summon another one? The full hour?

    Seems like it is only a few minutes. Been a while since I done it though.

    Now you know how to stop wasting them. It does have the drawback of no recall in or out. My experience is that you want to load up on lots of crystals and do each boss multiple times. This also goes much much easier if you duel client in a partied stealther with the crystals to park at the alter ( its a long run between the alter and wind ele on level 3 and will give you a place to res if the spawn gets you ).

    Please, I farm shame all the time and have seen one person in the last 1.5 years. Fel shame is even more of a ghost town due to the having to pass the bridge as compared to tram recalling in wherever you want.

    Even though the game is fairly dead on the shard I play most often I'd rather farm fel just because people are still of the belief that some evil red is going to come and kill them but it doesn't happen ever anymore. Spawns yes but shame, cov or wrong? Who's going to bother?

    Lets say it did happen all you need to do is toss a bola if you are on a tamer and honor yourself or honor yourself if you are a smart dexxer and play the chicken into thick spawn and let the game kill the guy with your assistance, only a moron would die down there.

    Hm okay, thanks Merus. I'll try to have more patience next time! I was worried it would take an hour, but maybe it's just five minutes (roughly however long it takes for the corpse to decay). I was thinking an hour and gave up for the time being ;p.

    My sampire has like 900 crystal points or whatever, i just go in with a pair of +mage jewels and some tele scrolls (in fel obviously)

    summon and kill the first one, summon the second, tele across, kill it, tele back, go to 3rd level, summon that, honor, drag out boss, kill it. Rinse-Repeat.

    The last time there was any PvP in shame that didn't involve a Harry was the day they changed shame. Outside of that no one ever goes there for PvP.
