It’s not designed around 1 or 2 people farming a whole clans worth, rather about personal responsibility to be prepared to raid. Having to prepare for endgame content is pretty much a core part of the mmo genre and far from unusual.
Now using your numbers from this thread I don’t think 2-3 hours of farming (pretty sure most wont do every kill! Sleep is good to) for an individual over the course of a few days in order to be able to complete many boss kills doesn’t sound so bad right?
Of course some people may farm more and choose to profit from them or gift them to clan mates, others might do less and just buy them for convenience or rely on friends. It’s very much about individual choice about how you approach this.
i feel asthough you are heavily underestimating the playerbase over the course of a weekend mini event. That is exactly when players will set alarms every 6 hours so that they can attend more raids without the worry of school or work gettibg in the way.
Your 2-3 hours of farming is also flawed. Assuming there is only one or two players farming then it will only take a few hours. HOWEVER, the fact that this is a mini event and starts in 2 days means you will have far more players farming at the same time. 15 at once wouldnt be unseen. Another factor is multi loggers. Some servers rely on people logging 2 or 3 or even more toons for the raids to go ahead. This could mean a player must farm upwards of 10+ hours just to collect all the pots for their toons (and thats assuming theres not a dozen others also farming to contend with).
In several cases the numbers in this thread are way unders. On a server with more than 1 clan capable of killing BT that means 80+ toons per raid needing pots. Theres just not enough hours in a working week to farm that number of pots.
I strongly agree with whats been mentioned several times in either removing the pot req over the next few days or at the very least buff the barb drop rates
