Tips For Farming Resources

Post by Admiral Aaron on Wed Oct 14, 2015 6:58 pm

Farming for cargo is the most important aspect to gaining power. With artifacts being a close second. However if you put those two together you end up with the ultimate farm, something only high end players can achieve. However to truly farm like a boss you might consider buying the supporter package, it costs $15 and lasts for 3 months. The tractor beam it comes with saves a lot of time when collecting cargo and arts, and can speed things up by a lot. I wouldn't recommend buying tractor beam by itself as it is far more expensive compared to the supporter package.

So let's get right down to it.

Low level newbies will need to grind hard to get to the top of the food chain, and here's a few of the ways they can do that.

Refresh farms are the best for low to mid level players, the first and most important being the elite zone of Kapello. You'll need to do missions first to get a bit of resources so you can upgrade your ship and weapons, then you're going to want to head to Kapello and kill the enemies at planet Mari and once cleared land on the planet then refresh the browser. Refresh farming like this can only be done if you are alone in the system or if everyone refreshes at the same time. If that's not available then you'll want to head to Durian and farm the slower way.

Another spot I like is Arrenius because there are so many enemies there and they drop artifacts you can recycle to make a decent profit with. Once you've gotten a decent amount of resources and you're able to farm Zergilin then you'll want to head down and visit the planet Polueno. If you've managed to get strong enough to kill Spy-1's at Glictan those will drop dozens of artifacts making a real decent profit worth refresh farming. Another spot similar to Glictan is in the planet Mikus located in the elite zone of Kritilian, they're slightly a bit easier to kill and drop a lot of arts as well.

The next farm spots from there would be Dr. Drak located in Hozar, and Motherbrain located in Neurona. If you can't quite handle those in a timely fashion there's Vibrilian, head far to the right way off the map beyond the recycle station. A planet called Withered Roots, it has easy to kill enemies and they respawn about every 30s to 1 minute. All of these from Drak to the Roots are farms that can net you 100k steel and more per hour depending on how fast you can kill the enemies. Another good source there if you can't handle Drak yet would be the moths, they drop bug legs and alien alloys and these are the most valuable cargo in the game as they give a decent portion of all 4 resources at once and there's no shortage of sevrus moths.

Now we move on to the big boy farms, not the greatest but definitely high end. First up is Cynapsian, flying through the left tunnel and making the dread moths chase you to the end and then turning around to kill them all in a nice neat pile of loot then head on back through for more. You can refresh farm this to speed it up a bit. A better place than this would be Mitrilion left side elite zone, dangerous but very profitable. I can make no less than 100k per hour there and up to around 400k when done properly.

Now we move into the juicy bits, the ultimate farms. While you can farm these the slow method and still make 200-300k an hour it can be done my way and make 500k-700k per hour. The slow methods involve farming the planet Alkzo in Fulzar, it drops lots of artifacts and bunches of big metal scrap. Then there's regius, most who can kill it do this within minutes. He drops around 30k steel and some nice level 100 artifacts, and can be killed every 5 minutes. Mixing these two farms, by farming Alkzo while waiting for regius to spawn, can be a tasty profit indeed. Next up is sidus farming, found in multiple locations on the left side of Fulzar. They tend to drop a gold crate as well as a couple dozen artifacts. Very nice farming. However I have tricks up my sleeve that double the rate of profit for this area (works for other areas as well, but not exactly easy to do as a low level).

The method to my madness is a little trick not too many people seem to be taking advantage of, and that is artifact upgrades. I don't mean increasing your strength to farm faster, I mean protecting your artifacts in order to make recycling arts a lot faster. When you put an upgrade on an art it becomes untouchable by the select max feature of recycling. So by making sure every art you want to hold onto has at least 1 upgrade on it you can now recycle all newly acquired arts in no time at all. I can recycle 600 artifacts in about 3 minutes tops, filling my cargo capacity twice during the process and making 100k just that fast. My favorite farm by far would be the sidus farming. I can kill them each in under 30s and gain 600 arts in under 20 minutes. That's 2 full cargo loads plus all the gold crates they dropped every 20 minutes. Rate of Fire artifacts are the key to this, once you've got max rof and shadowflames farming becomes incredibly easy. Takes a while to get there, but thats what Mitrilion and Alkzo are for. Very Happy

Can I add Drak in clan inst to the list, I seem to get approx 3 golds in 5 kills and refreshing is pretty fast as it respawns quickly.
The arts trick looks good but also looks scary, i can see a glitch eating my stuff

Good addition Martin.

The arts thing is helpful, as long as the glitch isn't happening. Recycling for me went so much faster after I put 1 upgrade on every art that I wanted to keep. I have every art that I want to keep, below level 67, secured and I can zip through recycling. I automatically recycle everything below level 40 and below level 60, I only have to look for "Superior" and "Exceptional" to see if I want to keep them (for the most part).

Life this way is so much easier.

Full credit for this guide goes to XiaolinDraconis, as this is just a copypaste of his guide on the forums.
