    Would love to see something like this as well. It would also be nice to add a location for the high point of the tower as well :D

    The "Go and grind for 30 mins" thing I don't know about...I don't "think" you can time a GrindArea section.

    I was thinking this exact same thing earlier. My main server is so crowded, I could sit at Huolon all night and noone would notice me.

    Would also be awesome to have a profile that camped the Ghost Ship, then ran to kill Evermaw, then just returned to the ghost ship camp area again and repeats over and over.

    I bet these 2 profiles alone would net more coins/timeless gear/burdens than any other profile that's been posted for the isle.

    Gear and burdens, doubt it. 1% drop rate for burdens doesn't change much when you're only killing 2 mobs. And that would involve a lot more sitting than killing. Also the respawn timers are identical lengths. Don't know about your server but on mine they get engaged at the same time (annoyingly so) making it 1 kill per hour. Not exactly the best.

    Let me do some math for you, Brodie...

    The average non-elite mob drops 1-4 coins and has the lowest chance of dropping burdens/timeless pieces, let's say 0.001
    The average elite drops 20-40 coins and has the second lowest drop rate, let's say 0.01
    The average rare drops 100-200 coins and has a drop rate of around 0.1

    The ship and evermaw drop between 400-5000 coins EACH and have about a 1% drop rate on burdens and even higher on timeless gear. That means if you kill those 2 mobs alone, you're getting a bare minimum of 800 coins, realistically around 2,000 coins for both mobs, and at least a 10% greater chance per kill to get burdens/timeless gear. They spawn anywhere from 45 minutes - 1 hour.

    I've ran your profiles for the isle overnight a couple of times now. The best I've done is just over 6000 coins and 8 pieces of timeless gear and no burdens at all. That's in a 6 hour night.

    Having a profile that farms ship and maw alone could easily match those numbers with a much higher chance at getting burdens, too.

    Estimating in a 6 hour run, avg 1000 per kill, and ASSUMING both arent spawned at the same time, you'll get 12000 coins in 6 hours, approximately AT BEST 12% chance of Burden drop IF you believe that 1% = 1/100 and not 1% each pull (which it actually is), BUT you end up with about 2 minutes of fight time, and 55 minutes of sit time.

    Also this assumes that the person pulling Evermaw doesnt kite him into Fatigue zone (while in that area, resource regen is cut off, devastating to some classes) and the boat doesn't swim off (happens if you can't kill it fast enough, may lead bot into the fatigue zone chasing it).

    While the best case scenario is awesome, you will need to combine it, at minimum, with an anti AFK mod (plugin or such) that will move/jump every so often to avoid logout.
    Not saying don't do it, its an individuals choice.

    It's Personal loot, meaning that 1000 players can kill Huolon and 5 or more receive the mount.
