As self-hopping is now being introduced I may actually do this, I couldn’t be bothered faffing with the previous method.
There’s a great site which lists all the current zone events – http://events.riftpluz.com/May 22, 2014 at 08:44 #3609
Will be taking advantage of this.
Also other advantages for the Artifact collectors if their fav spot has just been foraged.
Also as and when we get geared up could be handy for the World Bosses, but sure most will be doing that as well 🙂May 22, 2014 at 11:13 #3610AnonymousInactive
Oh true. Artifact collectors get unstable events so handy for that. 🙂May 23, 2014 at 07:51 #3611AnonymousInactive
Spent last night bouncing around the shards.
Bloodiron (PvP shard) is deserted (currently) , I ran two unstable events and saw four other players, three defiant and one guardian, so there was very little competition for the artifacts. I hung around afterwards until my artifact potion ran out and collected dozens, they were littering the ground, as well as loads of harvest materials. Even if you aren’t PvP geared I’d recommend Bloodiron for unstables and harvesting, the low population means that while you may get stomped one or two times it’s still far less hassle than competing with loads of other players.
Typhiria has about the same population as Gelhidra, and Zaviel has higher, so they’re great zones for standard events as the large number of players combined with shard hoppers means they get completed, but they’re not so good for unstables or harvesting.
One handy feature is that the nodes are identical for each shard, so if you jump up to a difficult to access artifact and collect it you can then shard hop to each of the other three and chances are you’ll find at least one more in the same place, the same being true for harvest nodes – I found a resource rich area and cleared it on Bloodiron and then did the same in each other shard, then back to Bloodiron to start again. This also works for mobs, so completing carnage quests or farming for cloth means you don’t have to hang around for respawns. I assume it works for clickable quest items too, will have to experiment, if so it’ll save some running round if you can trigger four from the same spot.May 23, 2014 at 07:55 #3612
