Default Re: Can someone explain Age of Conan's instancing to me?

captn, my guess is starting gold farmers are having a field day with this. Find an area easy to clear, loot the goods, swap to a new instance and repeat. Guild Wars actually had some code put in along time ago that made it so the bosses that droped the green set weapons (They are generally very good weapons that you can reliably get, unlike random stat rare drops) would lower their drop rates significantly if someone killed him a set amount of times/hour. People were picking boss mobs that wernt to far from zone in areas, and using an all human group, they would go kill it. They usualy had a good drop rate so it was an easy farm method.

edit: badboys reasoning make more sense.
