I just posted this over in another thread
, but I think that I also want to put this out there in General Chat so that more people can see it.
I got really good at farming them really quick - sometimes, it even felt like I was botting. Not even kidding. My Whirlwind Spear cooldown happened to be almost the exact same as the respawn, at 50% CDR. I would stand with my back to 1 spawning spot, use Whirlwind on a mount as soon as it came off of CD (which I timed to be as the mob spawned), then started firing my crossbow at another nearby spot. The other spot would spawn soon after, and my crossbow would auto-lock and 1-shot it if I aimed it right.
Basically, I did this for 30+ minutes to get all my 400 really quickly. I actually was worried a little bit because I thought that a GM might assume I was using a bot, because that's how mechanical it eventually became.
Moral of the story - farming these things is easy af, and repetitive. Some people might be botting, but I would assume the majority are actually just that good, because it doesn't take much skill.
Yeah, I would be hesitant to assume everyone is botting. I personally can attest to the fact that while it might seem like it, it could just be a human pressing those buttons. If you can find any free space, just try it out. It gets really repetitive after a while, so you start thinking of ways to make things go faster. And then other people try to KS you, so you have to find a way to kill things faster, and yadda yadda yadda.
Again just wanted to put it out there!
