Royal Ramble vs ODSFollow

So looking through the BCNMs and KSNMs to make money for my new gobbie bag quest, I was looking hard at ODS. Then, I found royal ramble. The first drop mentioned on royal ramble, is 100% Orichalcum ingot. That got me to thinking, 1/3 to 1/4 chance of making money on ODS, or 100% chance of making money on royal ramble. (if I sold the ingot)

I see an ls mate of my shouting for ODS at 4, I send him a tell telling him about royal ramble. He invites me, and we easily beat royal ramble. 6 Orichalcum ingots later, only 2 of which went on AH, the party was wondering why everyone is all ODS ONRY instead of doing this to make some money.

That is my question. If this has a guaranteed 250-300k attached to it, why would you even think about a possible 500k vs a guaranteed 250-300k. Sure the reward is smaller, but its guaranteed. Meaning no more seeing the person right before you get a serket ring, and you get a philosopher stone. Everyone gets good stuff.

Walking back to the BC sucks, but that can be covered by a 7th member swaped in the party while the previous orb holder runs through saruta to giddus then to the BCNM area again.

ODS Sucks. Copycat and RR are great.

O.Ingots used to be junk drops. You were lucky to get 20K for one.

Salvage has changed that on the AH, but ODS is tried and true. It can be straight-tanked, manaburned, and TP-burned.

If you have a group that can Royal Ramble with you, stick with it.

God **** I need to stop posting when I am dead tired. I meant to post this in general XD. But yeah just about any pickup can run royal ramble. Just need someone to kite the whm and king while you kill the blm. kill whm then king. We usually go with the PLD since he is the easiest. His def is too powerful for my tastes but he works nonetheless.

Queens stop to cast, and never get into melee range. Any job can kite them. Just get enmity on it, run away from the others, and let it stand away from you while you heal yourself.

They seem to agro the closest person too. I've often gotten hate on the WHM Queen(I'm usually tasked with kiting it) just by standing near it when it spawns. I'm not the one who picks our target(pld does) so it isn't a case of linking. But any non-magical offensive action works too.

Or have a member set /blm subjob for escape, which takes you right to the entrance of Giddeus. I did this as WHM/blm for a set of our runs, the time savings more than made up for the extra difficulty of not having /sch.
