    There are 2 issues related to Aakas that I think would make it better.

    1. Shared Loot is not as fun as when it was with the chests at the end. If this feature is to stay then please get rid of all low hp mobs in the instances. I used to run a few lvl 7-8 instances back when it was still chests and the loses were predictable, but now with the shared loot it can really messed up your return. I've said this before and will say it again, right now hunting in higher lvl instances is like hunting scoria then switch back and forth with puny. Your good multiplier could pop up when you HAVE TO kill the stupid little 10hp mob to get to the next room and thus could lead you to having a nice skewed 50% return.
    In order for the hunt to be consistence, the instances need to have a consistence hp for the mobs. To me, the instances need to be like sal key instances but the mob's hp need to be closer. Example, maybe key 7 have mobs with 1.5-2k hp mobs, key 8 2-2.5k hp mobs, etc.

    2. The key trade in npc have a timer for turning in keys. There is a few minutes refresh timer to turn in another key (3-5min?) and this need to be remove. When I have 10 keys to turn in, I will not wait around to do this 1 by 1. There is a work around method of relog but it get tedious and is time consuming since you need to wait for the 20sec log out and then key in your gold key again.

    1. unfortunate workaround because for a while there instance crashes were common and people were getting 0% return if they crashed before the chest room. Would love to see this go back to chests if possible.

    2. The key trade is another workaround - this time to stop people from feeling ripped off by the lack of key cost in the returns. I've had informal chats with devs (so please don't take this as any sort of committment from them) and they said that the key trade broker was tweaked down to the minimum delay possible but they would like to change this in a future release. So yes they are aware of the issue, I just don't know how long it will take to resolve.

    hope this helps

    1: The shared loot was also implemented as a way for the farmers for Gold Rush to be bale to get tokens from all mobs instead of just a chance for few from the chest.

    2. What Kikki said. Workaround to cover for the key costs that were not added into the loot for Aakas during the Gold Rush update.

    During Gold Rush Arkoins drop was reduced to minimum.
    Almost complete absence on many runs.
    Is not that only value of keys misseed but also on end of event participants had several milions of Arkoins missing ( not droped ) of amount of drop rate that was before change and was suposed to be collected in one month + of non stop event.

    After Gold Rush event i participated in Forum Auction with something like 3 milions + of Arkoins wich i collected before Gold Rush event and all changes they implemented.
    Forum Auction was closed without an objective reason, negating hard and long Arkoin grinding of players in past .
    Evidently players didnt colected enought for an serious auction during Gold Rush event.
    So good way to force ppl to sell what they have from before under MU or like i did TT it and buy "auction " item on free market and burn remain in playing.
    Someone got his land, i got my mele amp on calypso paying more then i would here on forum auction.
    Every school cost something...

    You have got to wait for support and check at least once a day if you got some peds back from MA in the ped flow center.

    People are forgetting you can now do a solo instance, talk to the female NPC next to the guy that you trade in the keys for mini keys. In there all mobs are looted separately.

    That happened to me twice once in door 5 and once in door 6, EU's reply was pretty much "pfft tough luck". I now invite someone to join my team just for the final boss fight as a measure of insurance.

    After lot of time without enter Aakas city, i try now start a Key 6 Mission as always, open one team with myself as member and cannot enter the door 6. I see there is some NPC at ladder and doors room, and one of them say me about change my Aakas 6 key. Is true only working with 2 members? Is not posible doing 1 member team as in the past? Thank you.

    Yes, you need a minimum of two member now to enter the doors. However, if you talk to the female NPC next to the guy you trade in your keys, you can enter solo aakas.

    In solo aakas you loot each mob individually, only in the team aakas you loot zero mobs but get treasure chests in the end.

    If you are grinding for golden key parts then solo is NOT the way to go. I've done well over 50 solo keys and only looted a few golden key gears in aakas 10 from a regular mob (aakas warden and dehera attacker).

    I've looted GK gears in solo Aakas 10 myself, from a warden in the last room.
    Needless to say, I wasn't exactly thrilled about it...

    whats worse is when you get that hof swirl and you think you finally got that elusive codex chamber only to see its just some crummy gears.
