Profitable Raiding

Post by Quina Quen » Sun Nov 26, 2017 7:18 pm

Back playing undertaking everyone's favourite pastime, raiding.

If you're scraping the murky depths of the ranks, what's a fair trade for your 15 AT's? I've been pillaging folk with 20m+ UU out, set to war with returns between 500-750k per hit. I stop when it drops sub-500k.

I'm using a single attack weapon so have negligible armoury costs.

Is this a decent model?

Depends on your time I usually go for 30mill plus and stop at 800k but it takes longer to find targets.

500k doesn't seem low if raiding with a single weapon, surely?

It’s not low your right but raiding down to 800k with a single weapon is better :smt117 just depends what time you have to raid

Plenty of time when I'm in the mood buddy.

I've sat and raised a couple hundred million a few times before now in one sitting. It's easy enough, just needs a good eye for it. :)

What is UU selling for in naq these days?

Trying to work out the conversion from 15AT to raid yield to naq worth.
