    We back at it. We going to try to make this one not last <4 hours lol. Below you see an SS of my fastest GPQ time; this was a 3 man run.

    [​IMG]

    There's a couple prizes being given out. The time above shouldn't be too hard to beat since this was 2 mages duoing the boss LUL.

    Requirements:
    • No cap on # of people you take with you, but it will effect your prize pool so be mindful. I personally believe that any additional member after 4 won't add any value if you perform GPQ actions optimally.
    • SS must be taken after Ergoth is killed. You do not need to kill all 4 statues.
    • SS must use the !time feature so I know you're not submitting an old screenshot. Please include a party window that shows levels and members of your party so I can confirm you're doing the PQ on this server and not some random one.
    • Deadline: The challenge will end with the start of the Anniversary event (so no exact date; when server goes down for the patch the timer for the challenge is over).
    Prize pools:

    Fastest submitted time (if no times beat 10 min): 50m split between participants

    Fastest time submission by deadline (must be better or match the time above aka 1 hr 20 left or better, or there is no prize pool; if multiple people submit with this amount of time left I will ask you for an SS of how much GP you gained from clearing Ergoth so please SS): 100m split between participants.

    I've only done one run haha, these challenges are very cool. I'd definetly give it a spin if it was for 1 person, though I don't have the characters to really speedrun it. It slows down alot if you don't have a strong mage/sin/shootpirate.

    the lack of participants or submissions might have to do with the difficulty of beating 10 minutes, even for seasoned gpq-ers.

    Fair enough. I've edited the post so that there's a 50m prize pool to the fastest submission even if no one beats the 10 min timer.

    I think the difficulty lies in using the top timer instead of the GPQ points awarded. Trying to beat your time by a full minute is tough (your time could be 9:59 or 9:00, but you'd need a 8:59 to beat it)

    I will say that when this post was made, almost every guild discord I was in posted and talked about it. Problem is that people don't really want to run GPQ, let alone try to fine tune it to beat your score

    Our run is far from optimal since it was a guild activity, not a select squad of speedrunners. But, seeing as there aren't many submissions and 10mins is no longer a requirement, here's one entry.

    [​IMG]

    Possibly of interest:
    -I had a 2nd character (who's not in the party or in the room) get the crown and open the boss door.
    -We got 774 guild points for clearing the stage. I don't know if this number is based on killing Ergoth or turning in the Rubian.
    -If you are still reading this, I hope you have a wonderful day. =]

    The GP you get for clearing the final stage is based on how much time is left on the clock, so the more GP you get the faster you cleared it! Thanks for the submission; always nice to see people get out and run some GPQs. :)

    I've also changed the 100m prize pool to be unlocked if anyone can match the 10 min timer after getting feedback from you guys on its difficulty. Hope to see more entries coming in!

    The new bonus GP rule is interesting. If the GP reward is based on actually clearing the stage (turning in the Rubian) then it is different from the SS taken right as Ergoth dies. It might make a difference in a close race.

    For myself, I'm wondering if the GP rule applies to submissions that do not match your own time. Our time is certainly beatable by over a minute, but if it comes to it, I have no screenshot of the guild points. We also spent at least 2 minutes finishing off the remaining statues, taking a group photo (our last run for the day) and switching to alts (for nx) before actually clearing the stage. :confused:

    No worries; if someone else submits the same time since I added this rule after the fact I'll take your submission as the winner since you submitted first!

    SS needs to include !time function and need to be able to see party members.
