The Ultimate Guide To Killing Silk Burrowers

Post by melvincarvalho on Mon Jul 09, 2012 12:31 am

I've written a little blog post on killing silkies. Let me know if I've missed anything.

http://parallelkingdom-tips.blogspot.de ... -silk.html

Also provokes a wider question:

Given that we now have the hunting monolith, are silk burrowers unbalancing the game, by giving huge returns?

I don't get how you make 2M+ gold per day hunting Silk spinners.
You said you make each spawn 200 so times 30 (if all epic) that is 6000 gold.
Then lets say you have 12 spawns that you clear each day that will make 72k, and if you clear them each 6 hours that is 288k gold.

I could of sworn I saw him at the top of the Top Gold list recently.....(sarcasm)

I call BS on the 2 mill /day from silk work hunting.

You only get 30 gold for a silk burrower? Do you mean pages? I get nearer to 300 on PK web, is it different on mobile?

From one spawn 2 nights ago, a vicious/epic pair, I killed 164 silkies, net roughly 45k.. Took about 20-30 minutes.. I can see 2M in a day if that's all you did..

Ok I though you meant 30 gold per Silk spinner in your blogspot, but after checking it again it says per second.
Well assuming you get all of the spawns epic and that you have an infinite supply of silkies you would need 18.5 hours to make 2 million by your numbers.

Ah that but is where the magic of respawn comes in. It takes roughly 6 hours to kill 12 silk spinners. By the time you are done the first one will have respawned.

So you can keep cycling 12 consistent spawns as IF they were infinite :)

While technically possible, I doubt 12 spawns would enable this return, Silkies are just too damn finicky to other things being in their spawn area... and no need to clear the whole circle either if they are not there, only about a 1/4 circle clearing is required... right by where they spawn (maps are useful for determining this spot)

I also don't think you can earn 100k per hour on them WITHOUT a weapon equipped, UNLESS you are using a Fire shield (then it's more). Even with periodic Cleave hits to some, knocking each Silky down 1 dmg pt at a time will take you a heck of a lot more than 20-30 mins to get through 200 of them. Unless it is an Epic/Epic spawn, the faster you clear the higher your avg gold per Silky will be... the trick is finding the right mix of gold vs time, and having lots of spawn sites really helps.

Even though I hunt Silkies... a lot... the game would get very stale quickly if that was all I hunted, so while I know that Hunter's Eye hinders optimal spawn numbers I find it very helpful with everything else.

Great job on the Hats btw! :)

You say 100k/hr? That's about water hunting rates. ...and 2m per day? Ok, if you want to play for 20 hours a day.

There are other ways to make much more than that without playing 20 hours per day. ;)

one of the best features about silky smashing is the social side of it. i can start a pair of silkies off and then kick back and relax, i can chat with my fellow pk'ers (somenting i cant do while water hunting), i can even watch a bit of TV..and more rarely... talk to the wife. anything else that involves making good gold requires my full attention and devotion.. silky smashing is a godsend. :D
