    Default Fastest XP per minute quest - Dun robar or Wiz King

    Is anyone farming EDs on wiz king instead of Rusted Blades? If so, do you do it on your own or in groups? In my experience two people hit red alert pretty fast. However, for a soloer wiz king can be as good or better xp than RB. 1 minute completion pic on EN:

    Farming Rusted blades can get old fast. Wiz king is good if you can get 3 people who can each take a wing. But keep in mind you don't have to farm your epic destinies all in one life. Tr a couple times and you could finish farming it that way too.

    Three towers in 1 minute solo (w/hireling) you must have been flying as it takes me at least 1 minute to clear the first room, let alone traverse the towers...

    However, based on the Ship buffs and other buffs on the buff bar I'm more willing to bet this took between 5 and 20 minutes to do (and I'm leaning more towards 20 minutes) and the Quest Timer is still bugged.

    I think 1 minute in quest report means anything between 60 to 119 seconds since you can certainly complete quests in 0 minutes. Rayium was on the first tower and I did grab the philactery straight away. Still, that's 17K per minute (at the very least) since tower guardian gives ~5K xp as well. I'd say the first tower is the one that takes longer - much more so if you got any means of ddooring. Ship buffs aren't much of an indicator since that run might have been the 3rd run on a row, or I might have gone to desert after doing a drow city ring run or w/e - I can't remember, nor does it matter. I do think you can grab a ss inside the treasure room with 55 minutes left on ship buffs - and that's accounting for running through the desert to quest entrance too. On that one though I was just doing another Rayium run and saw 1 minute on quest report and took the ss. I wasn't out to record the ss or anything.

    For a realistic number, you would count from the time that you step in, until the time that you step ~back~ in for your second run. Measuring it from zoneing in to zoneing back in, when dual boxing I get a consistent 15.7x XP/min for House of Rusted Blades, without expensive potions running.

    In Wiz King, the timer stops counting when you hit the phylactory. So you also have the additional time spent going down to the basement, where you took your screen shot, and then finishing out and reentering. Your runs will be of inconsistent length, with this case of picking the right tower the first time being the best possible outcome that you only get 1:3 times. When you factor all of these things in it is pretty clear that Wiz King is not a more effective XP farm than Rusted Blades is. However, Wiz King and Impossible Demands both make for pretty good second tier options if you are just plain sick and tired of Rusted Blades.

    Timer stops when hitting the philactery ofc, as I said in previous post, but bear in mind that ss shows 28K xp and it doesn't account for killing the tower guardian for an extra 4K-5K xp. That's 32-33K xp for less than two minutes. Ddoor = no time spent running back to entrance (Mykail the Pious, lvl 11 fighter henchie, has lesser dragonmark of passage aka ddoor - though I didn't know that when I took that ss), and 1st tower is the slowest (you only have to clear the entrance chamber once). Each tower adds 10K xp from guardian + boss + gatekeepers optional. I think a dedicated group can squeeze 30K xp per minute (possibly more) in epic Rayium.

    I, however, maxed out many destinies with that toon running House of Rusted Blades too, because your team doesn't screw up in RB like it can do in Rayium (like I said in first post), because you can sit back and relax, because Eveningstar has a lot more to do these days than Menechtarum, because you don't even have to chug pots or bring a hireling to clear your curses every so often (even though that hireling can't clear his -or her- own), because HoRB ED farming LFMs are by a far shot the most popular LFMs right now. Many reasons.
