I'm thinking about coming back to the game and i was wondering, now with the plat nerfs to previous raid zones, is it still viable to farm plat and pay for your subscriptions purely off of kronos? if so, how/where would i farm to do this, and how should i get back into the flow of things if i'm behind on gear? ty in advance
Get lucky with xmute's and drops and chain run SF heroic / raid for 90+ fabeled gear then sell the manas, the only zone that drops plat still i believe is OoA in moors.
Theres no way to do it using the current zones?
also whats the fastest way for me to get my alts from 92 to 95?
I always grind SS for 90 -> 95.
Run OOA greyed out like other player said. Farm solo dreadcutter. It's fast and good for 4 or 5 plat, plus legendary junk to sell, and you have a chance at an E-chest with fabled armor or an ethereal. I've farmed 3 ethereals out of solo DC. You can group and raid for decent plat splits. Maybe you can get in on the raids that farm drops to sell for plat. I still farm PR on my 3 SK's in reckless stance, minus the boss. Don't kill the boss anymore, because fight takes to long in defensive stance and can't be bothered to swap out stances and 2-hander for sword and board for 1 plat and an item. Can run rest of PR in less than 10 minutes and sell fabled drops to guildhall NPC merchant for about 20 plat. twice a week times 3 Sk's for 120 plat isn't too bad I guess. I found one zone that SOE forgot to nerf, but am keeping it to myself for fear of it being nerfed as well. I can only solo two named in it anyways. altogether 10 minutes for two kills, 30 plat, and 4 fabled items twice a week isn't too bad. I miss my 1,400+ plat farming weeks before the "GREAT PLAT NERF"! It was easy plat at only 3 hours of farming a week. I finally exhausted my plat savings this past week and will have to get used to being poor in the game again. Not a pleasant thought!
I helps to have multiple end game toons that have "farming toon" qualities as well. I'm not saying that you should make 3 SK's like me, but you should look at what traits a class has that lends itself to farming, if you think you'll be farming a lot. I wasn't going to make anymore toons, as I have 8 95 toons, but the free 85 heroic toon was too good to pass up. Guess what I made? A Bruiser to help me earn more plat to make up for the nerf. So now I'll have the 3 SK's, the Bruiser, and a Swashy that I lightly farm with. I keep my ranger parked outside OOA for daily runs. He can instantly reach out and touch all the mobs in the first room for a quick run. All my toons can clear greyed out OOA easily, but the Ranger does it the fastest, which equals less boredom for me. I keep the Swashy and 3 SK's parked outside DC most of the time, as they excel at close quarters AOE fights. I'm all about maximizing my plat per minute ratio. I like to do other things in the game besides just farm plat. My Coercer is a great toon to have as well, as peeps are always looking for regen for groups and raids. Plat splits and gear from those helps out a lot as well.
Krono prices on the Guk server have went through the roof lately. It's hard to find one for less than 800-900 plat these days. That's rediculously over-priced IMHO. I will not pay these prices. I work hard for my plat in the game, and would like to be able to have some to buy loots with now and then. Farming throughout the month just to make enough to buy a Krono is not the way I want to spend my time or plat in this game! I will be going back to buying Wal-Mart station cash cards to pay for my subscription from now on. I'd pay for a yearly subscription with a credit card, if I thought I could trust SOE with my credit card info, but they have proven untrustworthy in the past in regards to safeguarding peep's valuable credit card info from lazy ass POS hackers.
900p for a $15 sub is not over priced. Go look at any website selling plat for a comparison, because (wake up call for many) buying kronos is essentially selling plat, except SOE gets money out of it so it's okay. I find it so funny that people actually buy & sell Kronos as a means to make plat, the return is so awful for how much you're spending. But do you I guess.
