I enjoy rolling around Cursed Shore doing events and killing stuff in my magic find gear, generally seems to be decent solo farming. However, any time an event has more than ~20 people in it, I feel like I should just give up and walk away, because I will not get kill credit for more than 1 or 2 regular mobs out of 20. I'm using a 20/20/0/30/0 greatsword build for MF farming, and it works really well up until the ridiculous critical mass of players builds up (grenth temple, cough).
Of course I could just stop doing these events altogether until/unless kill credit mechanics change. Or reroll a ranged class with enough burst AoE and use them for farming. But I do see warriors at these events *not* complaining about terrible kill credit rate, and wonder if there's a build that gets a good rate of drops. It's also possible I'm just using my greatsword like a derp.
I'm currently using rare quality MF gear w/ full MF sigils and my weapon is a MF-sigil'ed exotic... 78 I think. Longbow is regarded as our AE go-to, but it seems like a nonstarter to me as it doesn't seem like it'd be fast enough. I keep thinking about trying an axe/axe build, since it seems to have more useable burst AE (spin to win). Thoughts?
Anyway, any help or advice would be appreciated. I'm not ready to give up the insane drop rates that I was getting before the number of 80s in the zone went up by 5x.
