I'm just curious what others are pulling with new delve weapons/gear. I'm doing EP mobs in valkurm as a taru thf using an aphotic kukri mainhand and I generally pull 200+ a run.

Uh, I've been doing valkurm for a while with Forefront Dagger and I get around 200 myself. Maybe you should do DC mobs with delve dagger?

Doing DCs in Valkurm with Aphotic R2 and Oynos, I generally pull 325-350, plus ~25 Touches.

Edit to add: Delve gear won't substantially increase your yield on EPs as you can't take advantage of the higher damage since you still need to proc.

I got 300 in Tavnazia on bst. EP during bee time DC rest of the time. There are so few mobs there to kill & I ran out of proc mobs quite often. I'm not sure, but I think I got ~15 forgottens.

I wouldn't go back there as I can't keep killing DC's through all three times & sitting around waiting for repops when you're the only one in zone is just stupid.

I started to do only DC mobs on yesterdays run, but I switch back to EP as it seemed like the drop rate on currency wasn't much of an improvement. Maybe I was just having a bad time of it. I will try only dc and see what I get. Thanks for the input guys and gals!

I don't believe DC mobs have a higher rate of currency the idea is that you get more forgotten items and similar currency because you are over-killing the EP anyways. Also to contribute I have only done one dynamis with MB dagger/delve dagger it was Sandoria and I got 200+ currency and like 45 touches. So I'd imagine 300+ in CoP zones.

DCs have a higher drop rate. It's pretty obvious when you do a zone like Tav.

That's been my experience as well. I didn't start noticing it until I was relatively well geared on THF, though.

On DNC/THF ive been pulling 300+ a run but have been doing DC only. Id try switching to them because they are easier to solo then they used to be.

Was it not reduced to dmg:75? I keep hearing conflicting reports.

The base damage is 75 despite the EN help text.

Which means it'll be eternally useless since the Aphotic has 16dmg/10str/15atk/10acc over it (alternately, 10agi or 10dex with their respective stat). Would have been worth looking into if the delay was a bit lower.
