Anybody got some suggestions how i should farm 250k Karma now ? Orr is dead , WvW is unreliable and farming Fractals is most likely very slow and depends on the goups .

Every single dungeon played with a lvl 80 char will give you 1880 karma+ the karma you can find in the Bags of Wondrous Goods which every boss has a very high chance to drop.
Also daily and monthly achievements give Jugs of liquid karma (4500 karma each with no booster).

Except there are few runs in the old dungeons going now, unless FoTM also gives karma? Never really noticed in my few runs there...

Otherwise it's the same as usual, OP... plenty still run the several chains throughout Cursed Shore, dailies/monthlies give good karma. Otherwise it's the unreliable methods of using WvW and dungeons as and when you can find groups.

However, even with just the daily and monthly jugs, it'd take 27 days to achieve 250k, so will hardly take that long if you're doing any of the other methods.

Question, feedback or issue? Pm me!

do daily/monthly achievements, do dungeons and obtain drops of liquid karma, use karma booster, pop them all at once.

Cursed Shore is still alive and kicking on Ehmry Bay.  Between DE's there and dailies, I'm pulling karma at a rate that seems to kind of trivialize the feeling of accomplishment at getting exotic gear.

Why even bothering farming karma? I got ~750k karma from just playing, I never farmed. Just doing events, that are going on. And I wasn't in Orr every, in fact I was there for 1-4 days a week for just a few hours (like 1-4^^) each. How to the hell do you need that much karma so fast? I got 3/4 of the karma needed for my legendary already but at the same time only made 200-250 gold when I actually need like 1000 or more gold (and there is even more I need gold for as I already spended 119g on a cultural armor, and want at least 2 more).

The only reasoning for me is: Buying gems for money and selling them for gold and than seeing the karma wall. I recommend you to just play the game and do different things to have fun and the karma for the legendary won't be the restricting ressource for legendaries. You don't have to farm karma.

there are always groups for AC, CM, TA, CoF, and HotW on my server, and the occasional CoE and SE pop up from time to time.  running dungeons as stated above is probably your best bet, you can do a full run of AC in a little over an hour with a decent all lvl 80 team.

for completing an explorable run, you get 1 vial of karma for 1880 karma, plus drops of karma for 400 karma from the bags as stated above.  In one run of AC explorable (with killing kholer), I got 2 drops (kholer and final boss) and the vial for 2680 total karma from 1 path, which a good team can do in like 20-30 minutes or less.  Assuming 2 drops of karma per path of a dungeon and fully running 2 dungeons a day, you get 16080 karma a day from this without using boosters at all.  Which, from my last calculations, is better than anything Orr had to offer in a similar amount of time.

Accumulate Jugs and Vials of Liquid Karma. Once you have amassed a high number, get these karma boosts:
1) karma guild banner buff
2) guild-wide karma buff
3) karma booster from the gem store
4) Outmanned buff from WvW
Then pop all your karma items.

I think WvW is the best option to farm karm.
