Profitability of spots

Posted (edited)

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Grinding Test 1 hours.

This is information is to give you an idea of the spots. It is not exhaustive. There are too many RNG consider. Classes are not equal at the speed of grind. A ranger could well see those numbers doubled or tripled .

All information are FreetoUse

With Valkyrie lvl 56 136 AP 216 DP +buff/Elixir and 2 Pet (The much bad grinder classe ever)

I stop the clock when i am full weight.

RNG stuff are not calculate cause i hate rng...

Good post! I'm excited to see the info for other ones! 

 

I've been thinking about trying helms some more once I get the node up because I want the ancient belt + neck but it's just so little silver / hr.

I'm surprised by how low these are after seeing all the forum posts claiming that grinding was the only real way to make money.

 

I have a couple of mining runs that will pull in considerably more than most of these, even without considering the value of any potential hard/sharp drops.

 

Look forward to seeing the rest.

I do really need to get out an kill stuff more often.

Sausans beach is a bad example though. Gotta find a channel where a main camp is open and solo.  Makes a ton.

Problem is that those zones are contested and near impossible to do solo without getting ganked every 5 min

Yeah, but so many people know about it now and you'll almost certainly get pk'd for that spot.

People say Chimeras are bugged right now because once they upped the turn in price for items, Chimeras started dropping 10+ turn in items per kill, making it possible to get very high numbers fast.

Not that I really want the competition.

My favourite mining run is mining platinum, gold, silver and gems between florin and Elder's bridge post. 

It consists of 13 platinum spawns, 12 gold spawns, 10 silver spawns, 4 sapphire ,16 topaz, 7 emerald, 6 ruby and  10 diamond.

Take me around 17 minutes to run, switching channels at each end.

 

 I also have a short mythril run across the NE part of Valencia that takes around 15 minutes per channel and yields around 50 mythril ore per run.

 

Both of these do require processing time to make the real money but I usually just bank the stuff and process it during AFK times.

Gathering Artisan 5, Processing Artisan 9

Speed 5 and Gathering speed 5

Just to check that my that perception of my mining run wasn't completely skewed since I normally take things fairly leisurely while gathering I decided to try a 1 hour timed run.

The lag was terrible slowing down my harvesting and stopping me sprinting without rubber banding.

Someone had also harvest a part of the area before me but that's always a risk.

I processed the results up which does take quite a bit of time but I normally would save it until I had other things to do around the house.

 

After the processing I checked the value selling everything at the lowest listed price.

The total for the 1 hour of gathering came too...

 

 

 

 6,975,074 before tax.

It did use 492426 worth of metal solvent (11)

but since I make it myself anyway I'm saving on paying the tax.

his results are consistent with his AP, which is pretty low. if he could push it to 155+ im sure he would be burning through a lot more mobs. I may try this, this weekend with mane/pirates/sausans/basilisk/crescent shrine (178/272 valk)

And this is without anything being connected?  I have mansha at rank 6 and got 8 relics in an hour once, its just boring spending more time looting than actually killing mobs but I guess you can farm ogres at the same time.

Getting any of the nodes up will increase this by a lot.  I always felt like manes dropped a ton of blackstones, when the event was going on it felt like I was getting a blackstone every other pack.

These are low numbers for grinding. 5-6 mill is probably a good average for average geared players in the better spots.  Also, OP is not including the value of all dropped items in his silver/hour list - that is purely the value of the trash he got during that time.

Is my first round testing. i will do more test on each spots.

I do this only the week-end cause i grind chimera like a retard during the week.

I try to avoid the much RNG drop, It's for that i dont calculate all stuff price and remove rare drop. this the reason i not show Skeletton and Shadow knight test cause you can get nothing after 40h of grind.

This post is to give a ideal that how much you can get with the worst scenario. With a ranger by example you can easy increase by 50% all stuff lol.

You must be pretty slow at Elric >.> I'm netting 4,000,000 silver turn ins on average with 2-3 forbidden books, 5-6 Black stone (wep/armor) with assorted trash items, average 6-8 mil in 45min after selling.
