    Default skip HK trash?

    i was wondering if its possible to skip the awful hammerknell trash by having someone stay inside the instance overnight til the next raid? people did that in eq2 before persistant dungeons were introduced all week...

    to be more precise

    day #1 you go into HK and clear trash before a boss youre trying
    day #1 raid ends, someone stays in the instance over night
    day #2 raid starts again, the guy is still inside, so no trash respawn?

    or does trash have a timed respawn thats not related to keeping the instance open?

    Keeping someone in there to keep the instance from soft resetting does indeed stop trash from respawning. Killing the bosses works better, though

    well obviously. but when youre still trying stuff its really awful to have to clear the trash every single evening to no end.

    oh... and thanks.

    Which trash are you trying to skip? The only annoyingly long trash is Murd->Zilas and then kind of the trash to Grug/vlad.

    My buddies guild was learning Zilas for 2 weeks, and during the day and offnights, they had 3-8 people repeatedly farming the skeletons before zilas for trash drops. They actually got quite a few weapons and jewelry. So you might want to reconsider and farm the skeletons for easy loot on the off time.

    As the member of a new'ish and average joe guild that just arrived in HK and is about to down Murdantix I'm very interested to know more about the question above

    I believe it was nerfed, but not taken off the loot tables. One of our clerics farmed them for... 18 hours I think and got the staff drop? Somewhere around there. You're looking at a kind of farm that's similar to going for Baron Rivendare's mount, if you are looking for the 2h staff O.o

    They nerfed the first trash pack before Murdantix, any trash mob after murdantix will drop loot.

    exactly the pre-zilas ones. and id rather not waste 1h or more every single day figuring out zilas on the seemingly random trash there and yes im gladly passing on the off chance one of the trash items MIGHT drop
