seems to me that peeps just want ec to come raining down from the sky
God... Wth is with people and wanting more ec? Its already easy enough considering its supposed to be a rare item, not a common drop. And besides, the fire legion give 50 ec daily. It's easier than ever to farm it and NOW people want to make easier ways? it's as pointless as casting a vote after the election is over. And if ec was made MORE available, the gms would just make items more expensive so it'd defeat the purpose. Here are a list of 20 ec sources i can think of off the top of my head:1) BH (10)2) Void quests (50-100 to 250-500 if ur a lucky SoB)3) Forest of songs (however much you willing to farm 1 ec every few mobs usually)4) Shine of Ancestor (same as above)5) TT (12 a day)6) Pv (4-6 from boss)7) FC (2 ec, recraft and god stones)8.) Snake isle (10) (theres a . there because 8+) will make a face x3)9) world bosses (drop base boss stuff i believe)10) Nightscream (1 per mob drop, bank every stack of ten and you'll be fine. I've probably made a lifetime total of 2-3k there in about 20 hours total farming NS alone)11) Fire legion (50 per day)12) GV (50 ec+millions of gold and 36 MTPs and exp)13) Theatre (1-50 however well you do in it)14) Daily Events (can range from 30-70 depending which event and how well you do)15) The base trials (mats at the end can be converted to ec, can make 1-whatever ammount you farm, different mats give different ec ammounts)16) Rancor (see forest and shrine)17) Sumor camp/sadistic glee (Soldiers drop a dozen or so, bigger mobs drop ec, OEC, juice, and other goodies)18) Base bosses (basically same drops as big mobs in sumor and glee)19) Gm hosted events (can make like 50-250 or more depending what event and how well you do)20) Gm Charity events (Things like free bosses, derps, spawns, and all those things. Can make HUGE ec on them, once farmed 1176 ec from derps and split it with my party of 3)All those places are just off the top of my head, im sure there is more. And besides and many can be repeated through alts and put on one character. In short, if you actually devoted yourself to it, you could PROBABLY make a good 1-2k ec a day, 3-4k if ur pro or something. Why people are begging for more ec is something i cant understand. Look with all due respect, if an ADD 20 year old with short term memory who spends 90% of his time on the game either chatting, pvping, helping others or just spacing out (I.e ME) can make 200-400 ec a day without TRYING, you guys should be able to farm at least 800 if you actually buckled down and farmed :/I've played servers where you have to farm for MONTHS to get end game gears. Frankly, i've heard more people saying "it's too hard" on this server then THERE and the end game gear mats had a 10% drop rate from bosses who could drop r9 players. Mats which you needed 6-10 of per gear PLUS a mat with a 1% droprate from a custom boss who could 2 shot an R9 5.0 archer. And the place was open pvp to boot so you could get KS'ed too >.>We have it easy guys. Fair pvp, caring gms, fun events, and almost everything given to us. Yet when people are asked to farm a few thousand ec for the best items, everyone cries about it. I honestly dont get it, it makes no sence to me. If everything was given to us, what would be the point of the game? You might as well play Oblivion and do the item dupe glitch to make millions of gold at lvl 2 and play from there. (And yes it was patched but theres still another unpatched way) :/Just have fun. There's no rush just take it easy. If getting r8 is too much work for you, role dragon, no biggie lots of people do. Like surpreme robe, R8 isn't going anywhere so if you get to the point you feel you NEED it, just start grabbing it. There is no need to be R8. its nice yes, but not nessisary. For me farming thousands of ec for some gear that may not even be any good isnt something i like. So instead i got r8 and BASIC r8 ites incase i changed my mind. All i really need in my opinion is the R8 weapon. The rest is just if you got the time, pacience, and money for it. Despite that, i can still do fine in pvp. A few thousand ec is alot yes. Its a daunting task. But (i dont remember who said this but i think it was some really wise buddah dude or something) The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. At least here its only a thousand miles intead of a few million like on other servers. Besides, R8 is nice, but it not always better than dragon. Usually dragon is better, sometimes its equal, and on some occasions R8 is better. Its mainly if you want more personalized and specific stats that dragon doesnt provide. It's a personal opinion more than anything really. But pls stop complaining or asking for more ec. Sometimes the ec flow here is thin, sometimes its average. But occasionally it overflows, particularly during X2 or when GMs do epic events like derps and stuff. But i'll tell you one thing. More ec isnt going to come if you beg for it. They usually hold things like X2 and special event like that when people arent bitching. Besides they have a MAJOR project they working on atm, so give them some time. After its complete they'll have lots of free time, and can probably host ec events for us. Just be pacient and have fun peeps.
