I wondered about that but got confused for a couple reasons: other people in this thread posting 4k XP for an alt and 6.4k XP solo (is everyone posting rested XP by default?), and stopping AE to do a rikti mission and getting 5.2k XP per minion (do normal mobs give about twice as much XP as AE?).

So many questions. Man, it's hard to pick up all the depth in that game when you leave for a while.

Yes.  AE XP was cut in half back around May 2019, so XP is half of what it would be compared to regular missions.  Also, are you running at +4?

Do the enemies in AE Mission ID: 41794 have higher than 70ft of Perception?

 

And what Mag Knock Up is Cremate on these enemies?

 

Thanks!

 

Powers in AE are mostly the same as what players get.  Therefore, the perception is 300 feet, same as anyone using Focused Senses.  That's what makes Super Reflexes so good for farming, as the mobs can see you really far away.  Cremate has a 0.75 mag knockup.

 

@nihilii, at +4 with no rested XP, minions on my fire farms give 4,272 experience.  Lieutenants give 8,544 experience.  Bosses give 25,119 experience.  It sounds like you (and Jacktar) are farming below +4, and the differences you saw in XP on the same farm were a result of rested XP.

I'm running a page 5 viable afk spines/fire brute on an asteroid fire map. Is there some trick to consistently grab the whole map. Sometimes I think I have them then  go afk, only to come back 10 minutes later and I'm standing alone and 5 or 6 packs are walking around casually, acting like I didn't just wipe out half their friends.

New to farming.

Just got a Rad/Fire Brute complete and have been able to start this experience for a couple of days now.


I had found that keeping endurance up was a very close watch all the time waiting for Consume to recharge. 
So, I went with Cardiac for the Alpha slot for the 45% discount. 

This seemed to help a lot and I could go several mobs without worrying about Endurance.

Then someone suggested Musculature in the Alpha slot for the 45% damage boost.

I understand more damage means faster destruction which means less Endurance. However.. I still can't past the feeling of have the Endurance reduction is better?

I would love to hear the thoughts and opinions from the Farmer Experts here.

Thank you

Most fire farmers rely on the Ageless Core Destiny to keep their endurance in check.

I noticed there weren't really any AFK ATTA farm maps for S/L builds so I made one. I am using the elec/rad AFK build with some adjustments because the endurance drain is actually more than the build can support. Even though it says focused accuracy is unnecessary to run, it takes much longer to complete the map with focused accuracy off. Slotting for endurance in focused accuracy and losing 2% melee defense doesn't really affect the build, but I run 2 accounts in the map so maneuvers stacks. 

 

Anyways! I got side tracked. 53436 is the Atta map. Set yourself to allow AVs so the ally doesn't die, follow the ally (AFK Ninja who will be in Atta's room everytime in the same spot), set atom smasher to auto, and just reset every 40ish minutes. Only thing is you sometimes get stuck while following the ally, but honestly is much easier than resetting every 5/10 minutes.

With very aggressive active farming, constant insp combining and attacking, each map can be completed in 2:30 to 2:45.

I can see page4 getting those times. But I don't see you getting those times with page5. Your video was with page4. I would like to see you post a vid with the page5 settings.

Yes, it's now about 3:30-4:00. The burn change makes a huge difference in damage.

Haven't attached the Active Rad/SS tank because it's a friends build so need to ask permission first. Essentially just proc out everything including GroundZero/Radiation Therapy, and build for 130% base recharge. With hasten and FF active you're looking at 300% recharge.

I wont ask for you to post the build, I will simply ask, is it "The Aprocalypse" build?

Yup!

Procs in everything that takes it. Build for as much recharge as possible.

Just checking.

I saved the build when the player in question first posted it, though I can't remember their name now to save my life.

I already started working on it, guess I'll kick it up a notch, try to get some use out of it before there are any changes to procs.

For some reason the Insp macro doesn't work as intended for me. When I press E it brings up a menu and then I have to click in order to create/use insps each time. I'm pretty sure in the past all I had to do was spam E and that's it.

 

What am I missing here?

EDIT: Solved.

Whoops, I didn't mean to delete my post about rad/dark tanker as a farmer, but I think I figured out the reason why super strength is better, the 15foot radius is bigger than anything in Dark Melee. Sadly I think that means a new character is in order, though I do love my rad/dark and my still consider making it a farm build. 

 

What are folks suggestions in terms of how to fill in the rest of my aoe gaps? Is Cross Punch worth it? What about my epic pools, should I go with Mu Mastery for the added aoe, or is focused accuracy necessary (helpful maybe with proc slotting?).

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Also thanks for your farming maps America's Angels, I always rate them 5 stars and recommend them to people.

I read through a lot of the advice in this thread, thank you America's Angel and other contributors.

 

This is my S/L Rad/SS Tanker fire farm build, I am open to suggestions for improvement.

 

I ended up getting 90%+ S/L Resistance, 45%+ S/L Defense, 600% Regeneration, 150% Recharge, 182.5%+ Damage, +35%+ Accuracy, +43.28% To-Hit, and loaded up with all the procs I could fit.

 

I get pretty obsessive with these things, but I think this checks every box? I am not sure. 

 

Also, it seems that the build is about as cheap as you can get assuming you allowed yourself to splurge on roughly one ATO set, one Winter set, and one Purple set. I end up farming and accumulating enough purples that is fine with me, but I think it is at least a mid range budget build? Funny enough I didn't even intend for it to be that way.

I know many folks on here don't like to have travel powers on farmers. I get it, your money can be your travel power.  I suppose a travel power at level 10 is just a stylistic/roleplay choice for me (I am on Everlasting). If you would rather not have a travel, this one is +50% more generation and 16% more recovery than the build with a travel power but is pretty much the same thing.
