Nice mob grinder. Yes they make getting mob drops a lot easier. 100% ammo save? Thats OP.

Cool thanks!

Some Qs for ya:

1. Why did you do this near the bottom of a world? If you're spawning from eggs, why not just do it near your home base?

2. Are there other useful save-ammo items that you didn't list? I know there are some but it's a hidden stat, so a PITA to discover, and the wiki is kinda outdated on items. I would imagine the potion is necessary to get to 100% , but I'd like to try playing with some ammo builds, as I never realy use ranged weapons (because they blow chunks, mostly)

3. Isn't there a max number of mobs that can be spawned at once? I forget what the number is. Do you know? Seems like to make it as efficient as possible you'd want to just have this number of eggs.

I have mob grinders on all the planets before Lilith, but this is the most secure one. I built the grinder on Magmar because I thought it had the rarest drop chance or something. Also, because I didn't want any explosions going on around my house.

I don't know what all of the save ammo items are, sorry.

I don't know if there is a max, I just spam eggs until the potion runs out, and to be honest, since I have 100% save ammo, it never uses up any eggs. I have acid there to kill some of the mobs as they spawn, but also the bomb throwing mobs kill a lot of the other mobs. Once the save ammo potion runs out, I change my equipment to be high luck and take a luck potion, then I kill all the mobs and collect their drops.



Thanks for the reply. So you haven't noticed the mob limit? I feel like you hit it VERY early into the 3 minutes, so the luck potion may not outweigh the extra kill cycles? I dunno.

I've been trying it for the last day or two and mostly just doing as many kill cycles of about 25 mobs within the 3 mins as possible, and not worrying much about the luck stat (which is way less significant than the difficulty setting).

You may have mentioned this somewher,e but I'm also using a potion of explosion resistance so I can stand right next to the killing pool and not worry about the mad bombers. And swords with life leech just in case one mob escapes, and a potion of slash damage to save on swords.

You could just use thick stone, jail doors, and water to prevent explosions.

After playing around with this concept for a couple weeks, I believe two things:

1. Your mob grinder is way, way, WAY WAY more complicated than it needs to be, given the technique you're using.

2. This technique is a total exploit and is getting patched out in the next patch, guaranteed. It trivializes mob loot in the game. :(

Apologizes for gravedigging but how is mob grinding using a grinder an exploit? People have been making mob grinders in this game for a long time and it hasn't/hadn't (haven't played in awhile) been fixed.

I think deadclown means the save ammo potion + golden egg combo is an exploit, not mob grinding. Mob grinding has been around for ages in JJX.
