majority of coins through boss clears
As stated: By being a douchebag and stealing placement from the groups that came in just for clears. Any group I saw come in to do bosses only ever did two runs tops, and it's only because of my specialty and attendance with multiple
groups that I saw those pouches at all. Having people stand around for 35 minutes out of an hour after ten minutes knocking people out of afk mode and fifteen minutes clearing the bosses is not conducive to keeping them interested in the action.
We need to make a distinction here: Running with just your own group has an infinitesimal chance of getting you a pouch of the coins you need and is a huge waste of time for too many people at once. Soloing and sneaking in on other groups' boss runs and just placing will get you pouches, though not often exactly what you need, at a decent enough rate because you can get in on far more runs a day. This only works because said groups don't understand the prior point.
"You got a lot of coins from boss clears" does not
mean boss clears are the best way to get coins. If anything I exploited and cheated those groups who weren't expecting a DRK/DNC to kick so much *** and take and heal so much damage. I was a boss run's worst nightmare. I made the usual PLD/DNC leech look like a nuisance (But I was ten times more useful because I could actually kill something
I did see groups coming in for higher tiers (#05 and beyond, saw some standing at the very last one but I don't think it was open), and I paid them respect by not crashing their runs as much as for sake of not knowing what was in them. I would conjecture that a group getting clears and actually advancing up the tiers would find WoE much more worthwhile, since there are
neat drops besides coins, but spamming a single conflux does not work well. Edited, Jun 28th 2011 5:22pm by Raelix
