(no owner is our clan name) bosses are dead under 10 seconds, 20 to 22 greater essences per maelstrom from one single location, (we are adding a second platform, so we can make 40 greater essences per maelstrom , (each platform requires only 1 player! to manage it)
this system was based on the same trap concept used by exiles to get the skeleton keys, it was the product of teamwork , observation, and a lot of tweaking, this process requires progression, DO NOT expect to gather 20 greater essence per run, at the verty start . this is also legit way to do it, no exploit or anything against the server is being done while farming them,
what you need :
1 level 60 toon, (i am farming this by myself , no other players or clan mate)
15 good level 3 or t4 summoned surge fighters.
an offending platform : 600 build pieces, (remember bosses will destroy it, storm will destroy part of it, if you make it too tight the spawns will stop, when several build pieces are broken! and of course send several foundation lines into the storm for summoning those bosses.
Gear : 4 sigils per thrall. good to have, but not mandatory (for added 50% more damage to maelstrom creatures, pork food (The one that adds 25% more damage output)
Armor: epic argos heavy (plus vitality) some of our personals uses flawless black knight, but not necessary.
weapons, different types you want to mix daggers , spears, poison weapons , hammers for sunder, acidic weapons, (dripping swords) most of them comes from skeleton keys boxes, others needs to be delved, so arming them is not hard. (you can start your force with decenst legendary weapons that comes from those skeleton keys chests, tgere are really awesome weapons from bosses around the isle, but i will leave that for people to discover.
thralls should be taken to at least level 10, if you dont have access to summoned thralls yet, you can use pets, (tons of them , it will be a blood bath for you, , will take about 25 seconds to kill one boss, but you can get yourself started with them (thats how we started), a few will be greaters (they will also die) . have a mix of pets, so they add stacks and dots to them, keep pumping them until youi got enough essence for 2 surges, heck even level II from the summoned surges could add up, until more higher tier warriors are added, , once you ahve 10 to 15 or more fighters from surges , and those alre leveled armed and with sigils, you will start killing them quick faster :
choosing the battlefield :
you want a flat terrain, we have our big builds area close to the leyshirne of the serpent, we conduct our surges there. but there are GREAT places just outside the storm that you can use for it,
a single player can handle all this. (so it is DOABLE By single players) doing the high level surges you will require friends helping )they can be challenging) we recommend 3 to4 players, the more the quicker it goes. unless you want to chesse then by using the water in one of the leyshrines, just kill from distance slowly).
warriors you want : jebbal sag fighter III and up, aesir fighter III and above, cultists warriors or t4s will be also good!
a reference :
battlefield starting the maelstrom farm run on platform. *be adivced , ust T1, they will one shot it, same as any T3 building piece., so dont waste resources.
So @Community please send word, DO NOT make getting t4 crafters easier, making them guarantee drops, takes the rarity out of them, farming the essence is so damn easy, that we almost feel sorry for bosses, specially true if you plan to connect exiles lands with siptah.!
