I did an idoc last night.
House went idoc 1:17am
It fell at 6:54pm
Full time 11hrs 37 min

Keep in mind it went through server down.
Hope this helps


Your maths for the full time is a little off there - with those times it was 17:37 with a reset. Reset has been real quick lately, like 20 minutes. So if that is accurate, it could be closer to 17hrs and 17 minutes for an idoc period unaffected by reset.


Don't you also need to factor in the total of all server saves throughout the day also? Like 5-8minutes? I have been and it seemed to get me closer, though I don't know if this is true.

Hahahahaha, Eo you're going to be the next Telamon! How dare you post clear and concise details of exactly how you do what is %100 legal within the bounds of the system. Except in his case he was era-accurately clicking the signs as a ghost (which you NEA can't do anymore).

Good game Eo, good fucking game.

Careful, I think I hear the rattling of pitchforks and torches!!!

Not worth it. I left BeatingU's IDOCs to go spend time with my ex. It dropped LITERALLY 10 minutes later.

For this to work effectively you need to team up with at least 3 other people and work together on finding, timing and securing the good spots. You can be the richest person on the server in a matter of months. Just ask the one that shall not be named.

But you didn't say whether it was worth it. A roll in zee hay instead of an IDOC?

You did get a roll in zee hay, no?

No, the world saves have been factored in already, but it was done about 9-12 months ago and saves may be taking more/less time now.

More, defiantly more. In fact, the conspiracy theorist in me thinks that's why it no longer tells us exactly how long the save takes.

World save takes 25-30 sec
Not sure of their frequency though I'd imagine 3x/Hr
