On karma DR:

What I have started doing is to skip the " defend the perimeter" event of the plinx chain. Its a long event with a set duration (roughly 5-7 mins) with little to no drops. I have managed to extend when my DR kicks in to 4 hours(at best) instead of the normal 30-35 minutes.

Make sure your groups knows what your doing or they could replace you

*note* By skip i mean completely log out of the game for 5 minutes, if you swap to an alt your boosters will still drain time.

Not true, though haven't tested this for 5 days but I doubt the maintenance patch on Monday/ Tuesday has changed anything. But when I was karma farming (and did so for 7 days straight), boosters were not effected if playing an alt. This is really important as using alts to avoid DR mean your alts were probably using boosters too. Never did my booster time go down when playing an alt.

I need to time that part of the plinx chain but to me part 3 was more like 4 minutes and you can speed it up, you simply knock the enemies out of the circle. Also on desolation, the zerg fest hits the mobs so hard they rarely even get into the circle making this event finish even quicker.

DR rates have also been altered in the last 7 days. Prior to this you'd need 3 characters to avoid DR if you were hardcore farming with boosters, now you only need 2. Farming without booster you can for 45-60 minutes now before having to change.

Ive been running Cursed shore plinx nonstop for about 4 days now.  Only time I see dr is when I add in a camp and tar or something like that.  If I stick to Plinx,Arena,Tar, Brood Mother, And Abomination I wont hit DR for hours.  If I do Hit dr then I skip say abom then hop back in and its fixed.  I have been pushing the limits though.  If I run all of them and I do hit dr depending on if Plinx is late I can run the chain again and my dr is gone.  

I sometimes go to camp when I am going total maximization.  Usual goal a day is 50k  though last night I grinded out about 70k

Correction, took me a while to test this. When you log out to character select your boosters MAY continue to drain. In what i have found it has something to do with not selecting a new character in the select screen and logging out of an in-progress dynamic event. I could not recreate 100%. So swapping to an alt is fine and good.

Bug report filled. Just be wary and either log to desktop or log into another character, DON"T log out and just let the character select screen sit.

Superb guide congrats. Now i know what kind of nerf we will see next. Consider 95% of your guide thrown into a trashbin in a couple patches. Expecially the character switch karma farm, or the trick to tag quickly to not trigger the DR.

The components bought from Miyani are soulbound.  So whether it be the 10x or 1x mystic clover recipe whatever you buy from Miyani will be soulbound, and of course the bloodstone shard.  So don't delete your alt!

this was a great guide, but with the item drop rate nerfed since November 15 patch, the guild might not be as useful as before...

Guess you all aren't used to gw1 and what happens when a guide is out: ends up nerfed, destroying playerbase fun. Next time you want to make a guide about anything, thinks twice, and change thread ;)
