I don’t know specially with this weeks resources, Ridgeback’s hand in for 50ea and anyone with T2 and luck rings can fish around 90+ per hour which 100% would be more points per hour then grinding mobs. It would also be nice to drop my spare 1.1k Ridgeback’s for the easiest 55000 points of my life.
“I generally agree as well that the format of this event potentially hoses returning players over the next several weeks, which is a shame.”
Hosed returning player here!
I logged in the other night, started looking at the Defend the Realm stuff (because I LOVE games that do community participation jazz – Elite Dangerous’ Community Goals keep me coming back week after week to contribute & kind of compete for rank, hehe).
Noticed the goal(s) seemed unobtainable with my very limited playtime ability right now (if I want to dive back into Orbus, I could devote maybe 2 hours a night at best), shrugged, and logged off shortly after.
Catch-up week would be great of course.
A tiered reward system from the start would’ve been better, IMHO. I sliding tier system like EliteD’s Community Goals would be neat, but IDK if that would work well with Orbus.
Perhaps on this week, but I would still think that a lot of people hate fishing and would just go with killing the mobs which could be just as fast next week.
Kill as many as you like:
World boss 3
Raid boss 5
Gather as much as you like:
Aged invisibility potion
