The Hermit's Guide to Coinage (Part Two!) (From LUN)

Post by Soundragon on Wed Jul 13, 2011 12:12 pm

(This post is from my post at LUN.)

Since the practicality of the Token-to-Coin system has been greatly reduced for most players, it may be that you have been having a difficult time earning coins. Or perhaps you are good at bringing in the coins, but you question the practicality of the method you are currently using.
Today, thanks to the LEGO Universe Community Team, we have another general idea of the most practical ways of earning coins, as well as how many you can earn by each method. They do warn however that these results were gathered from Rank 3 minifigures with no Valliant Weapons, so your individual results may be greater or less than the averages listed here.

Click here if you would like to see Part One of the Hermit's Guide to Coinage!

Check out the info below, straight from the official LEGO Universe News Network! (Please note that averages per minute were calculated and added by LegoFan101, and are based upon the averages per hour.)


20110713-102721.jpg

1. Racing

• Racing is a gamble. If you win, you can take home a decent amount of reward packages filled with coins, cars, and Faction Tokens. There are plenty of reasons to practice your racing skills, though: not only are its achievement rewards fun and unique, but we also offer plenty of official racing contests, so those who hone their skills could be in line for tons of LEGO sets, high-quality sellable gems, and unique in-game reward items.
• Average coins per hour – 3,000 to 7,000 (depending on placing)
• Average coins per minute – 50 to 117 (depending on placing)

2. Grinding

• Grinding (defeating a mass of enemies repeatedly to stockpile the valuable loot they drop) is the second best way to earn a fortune of coins, items, and Faction Tokens. 

• We were surprised to learn that you can actually earn more coins grinding in Avant Gardens than in Forbidden Valley or Gnarled Forest by using a simple tactic: smashing and rebuilding two Stromling Mechs into turrets, then watching as wave after wave of Stomlings get smashed in their wake. It’s a regular coin harvest. 
• Average coins per hour – 12,500
• Average coins per minute – 208

• Grinding more difficult enemies, like Apes or Dragons, offers both a higher payoff and a higher risk. The increased chance for rares like parrots, briefcases, or the King’s Crown (all of which can be sold for many a coin) makes it worthwhile – as long as you work with a team.
• Average coins per hour (solo, Forbidden Valley Maelstrom Horsemen) – 9,000
• Average coins per minute (solo, Forbidden Valley Maelstrom Horsemen) – 150

• Average coins per hour (group, Forbidden Valley Maelstrom Horsemen) – 15,500
• Average coins per minute (group, Forbidden Valley Maelstrom Horsemen) – 250

• Players with low-level gear should grind safe mobs as much as possible until they have their Level 3 Faction Gear set, at which point it will be much safer to attempt grinding tougher mobs.

3. Achievement Hunting

• If you’re not sure on where or how to earn your cash, let your Passport guide you! Find areas where you haven’t unlocked grinding achievements and grind there. Same goes for minigames, missions – everything. The achievement awards you’ll receive will earn you a nice amount of extra coins. It definitely adds up.
• Average coins per hour (hunting Achievements in Gnarled Forest) – 4,500
• Average coins per minute (hunting Achievements in Gnarled Forest) – 75

4. Begging

• ...is never an option.

(End Quoted Material)

*LUN Tip: If you happen to see someone trying Tip #4, don't just yell at them, call them losers, and walk away. Try to take them and walk them through these tips. Before you report them try showing them all the cool ways they can earn coins. If they don't accept the help, just walk away. But at least you'll walk away having tried to help someone, instead of possibly hurting their feelings! (Yes, even THEY have feelings.)

See you in the Universe!

Liked the last tip, I've seen too much of that. Though conning people in trades is worse! That's happened to me a lot...

Funny, that never actually happened to me...

Another good tip is to not go looking for beggars. If you aren't looking for them, you hardly ever notice them. Works for me, anyway. Razz

Ah, but did you see the average coins per minute? No you did not, my good sir! Razz

Has anyone actually made a profit on wishing wells lately?
