Only one suggestion to Azart Hatchery Portal (a.k.a Caiman farm)
Hello, I would like to suggest an option for the Azart Hatchery dungeon farm. As many already know, this is the best way for you to get lvl 70 and SAP (Skill Advancement Points)
Before the v86 patch, there was a way to hunt on raid the caimans, so it was a very good way to get lvl 70 and get 180 SAP. When the v86 patch was released, they removed the possibility of raid hunting and only the party option was possible.
I have a char with 180 SAP, farmed in the previous patch, and what I can tell you is that even with the "buff" that was said in the patch note v86, the farm is much slower than before, which makes a lot of people as give up on doing.
Skill Advancement Points is a system that is not shared for your entire account, so if you want to unlock on another char, you'll have to do it all over again, which takes a lot of time, gold and scrolls, on average you spend 1.7m gold. (For some classes there is no need to unlock all options, so this value may be lower).
To unlock everything, you will spend 1.946m gold.
On the scrolls, the skills of Lv.66, Lv.68 and Lv70 are 60 levels each, so we need to make 180 SAP, for each Lv you will need x1 SAP to unlock.
To put Lv.66, Lv.68 and Lv70 skills to the maximum you will need:
Lv 66: x2141 Skill Advancement Scroll I
Lv 68: x3483 Skill Advancement Scroll II
Lv 70: x4701 Skill Advancement Scroll III
for Lv 67 and Lv 69:
Lv 67: x720 Skill Optimization Scroll I
Lv 69: x900 Skill Optimization Scroll II
This is the amount of scrolls to unlock all options.
With that in mind, do we really need to make the SAP farm so difficult? Remembering that it is not easy to get all that scrolls, but we had a good event at the Guardian Mission that helped a lot. I hope that we get this event again.
So my suggestion to make the SAP farm more enjoyable is to add the map scroll to the Vanguard Initiative store, so we could buy the map scroll for xxx credits and not depend on that RNG.
I think that way we could get a better benefit from the Vanguard Initiative store. About the amount of credits? I would like to suggest something around x200, I will show you why. I farmed practically 170 SAP in this dungeon, here comes the question, how many times did I do Azart Hatchery? I guess x100 times, maybe a little more or less, detail that at the time I did we were having an event that gave 50% + SAP per dungeon, so the amount of times you have to go there without this event will be much more.
Just one example, x100 Azart Hatchery map scroll, will cost you 20000 Vanguard Initiative Credits.
Note 1: Some people may be wondering, this 20000 value will be much lower if everyone in your party uses this scroll once. In the description of the map scroll you are not allowed to enter group, so you have to farm alone.
Note 2: About the value of each map scroll, as I said is only a suggestion and this value can be higher or even lower.
Note 3: As far I know, Azart Hatchery (Solo) gives less xp than "normal" version, so probably you will need to do more times.
Well, Thanks for your time.
