    Might only be 50 mobs, but still took an hour to complete - so they arent exactly trash mobs.

    There is a video with Svena and Boardian running a Golden Key on Boardian's twitch.tv 'Past Brodcasts' - It doesn't look easy, Chris|Arkadia did say there was a way to prolong the spawns, but that comes with the additional risk @ chest opening time.

    Gz !

    Videos are being encoded atm. I'm a bit of a fraps noob, so I didn't realize just how much space it took up when recording raw video. There will be a split in the middle, and then at the end the other hard drive I set it to record to threw a hissyfit and I did not get the looting recorded.

    Also, just to clarify, Chilix ran his key with some of his socmates. My PM showed up in his video because I didn't realize he was in the process of running a key :eek:

    how is that you run the instance alone, when everything pointed that you needed a team? and quite funny that developers gives clues after i did it very profesional ( sarcarmotrer at max ), also after the fuck in the millionair event cyrus saying to you to send him PM to claim it instead on page

    I'm sensing a bit of anger there chilix. Not that I really blame you, you've gotten the short end of the stick quite a bit in the last few months. Nothing I can really do but wish you some better luck, I know from experience its no fun when MA sticks you in the no good loot corner. :(

    As far as running the instance solo, your stream told me far more than I got out of any of the cryptic messages the devs have posted. The two key things I learned from watching that was that killing the final jug will trigger the instance end and that in Perseus I would have no problems killing the mobs. I could have been dead wrong and missed on on the chance to pump the instance loot way up with a big team, but it was a gamble that I took and it payed off.

    I waited to run my key until after I saw ark start to drop some of the new items. Things have changed. Long gone are the days when the first few hours of a new VU drop all the new toys. It seems to take several days for the game to decide to start dropping new loot.

    On the millionaire event, I haven't gone back and reviewed the rules closely just yet, but I believe what you are referring to was to stop someone who did not have a key from "place holding" or trying to claim a prize they couldn't get. Considering I got the discovery hof and at the time there was no way to use the key, save for TTing it, those rules were unneeded. If the ark devs do decide that my award was unjust, I still have the 1M arkoins and storage and would be more than willing to trade it back for my key.

    Anyways, enough of that here is the first of the promised videos:

    [video=youtube_share;KEjLObNr29A]http://youtu.be/KEjLObNr29A[/video]

    Ignore the bit at the end with the low FPS, what was just me filling up my main hard drive. I played around with fraps too much and did not realize the space requirements. :rolleyes:

    And the final part:

    [video=youtube_share;gS4GnTABehg]http://youtu.be/gS4GnTABehg[/video]

    I had to turn off fraps at the end of the event and missed all the diso hofs :(

    The hard drive that I told fraps to record to after my main filled up started to disagree with it and I had to kill the recording.

    No further mobs spawned after I killed the boss. I believe this is the extent of the instance. My general theory was to kill mobs by their level, starting with the lowest first.

    If/when I do my next run I promise to do a better job recording it all :eek:
