Default Farming deaths?

I didn't know exactly what forum to put this in...

I need to finish sweet tooth for my last title, I already have all the pumpkin cookies, I just need to do all the dying.

Does anyone know of a spot where I can die repeatedly next to a res shrine so I can spam these things?

thanks.

You could always leroy jenkins yourself naked in the HM vaettir farm. if you take absolutely nothing with you and just let them pummel you one after another you'll wrack up enough DP to use the cookies. HM there's about 60 of them which means there's lots of death to go around.

Best way I know to farm deaths is Death Leveling your pet, have a look here :

you with bip
2x mesmer with Flesh of my flesh (max fastcasting nothing else)
=> fastest way I know you only need to use 1bip to die again after rez, where as with UA you'll need to keyspam more

To (hopefully) clarify this a bit.

Take some heroes with you - they should have Unyielding Aura (or Flesh of My Flesh), but no heals or other skills which could mess things up. (Best thing is just an empty skill bar with only the rez.) Exactly what heroes and what rez to use depends upon what heroes you have and/or which ones have the rez available, etc.

Equip yourself with a Vampiric weapon (it shortens the number of Bips required from 4 to 3 - so if you don't have one, don't worry)

Equip yourself with BiP (Blood is Power). You may need to change your secondary and/or capture BiP. Blood Ritual might work too, but it would take longer.

Go outside a town/outpost, away from enemy mobs. (Just outside Kamadan works fine.)

BiP a hero until you die. They will rez you. (UA is quick). Use cookies. Rinse and repeat until cookies are gone.

NOTE: It makes no difference what armor you wear or what your total health is. BiP works on percentages, so it takes 3 or 4 BiPs no matter what.

This is much faster than dying at a rez shrine, etc.

-snip not optimal information-

Note: This is also an excelent time to consume tonics that can't be used multiple times like candy corn. When you die you lose the form, when you res you can re-use.
Note2: You can use heros do res you to consume tonics faster, since you just need the death and not the DP.

If you sac yourself to death, bip'ing for example, you still get dp regardless of time between deaths.

Apparently I was wrong, deleted previous comment for more optimal way of doing it. Wow that would of been nice to know a long time ago when I had over 1k cookies to consume...

Ok for optimal timing on this you only need 1 mesmer hero with (preferably) 16 fast casting and enough healing to get restore touch up to 51% health (for ease sake, just go with 12). If you use multiple heros with UA they all use it at the same time when you die, causing some delays.

You'll want your mesmer to have UA, restore touch and renew life.

Equipment doesn't really matter, if you can get your HP to 2 at 50% it will make it go a little faster, but the time it will take finding a +11/21 or +12/22 hp weapon would probably not be worth it.

If you do decide to go for 2 hp at 50% dp, it will cut down the cast time in half between deaths. You'll need 4 superior runes and a -50 hp cesta (the one used for 55 farming). If you have a 12/22 health weapon put survivor insignia in your body armor and pants as well if using a 12hp weapon. If you have an 11/21 health weapon use a major health rune and a survivor insignia in your pants as well if using an 11 hp weapon.

This makes it so BiP sacs half your life (at 2 hp), and with restore life ressing you at half life it takes off another casting making it that much faster.

Flag 3 UA's in a triangle around your agro buble and they dont use it at the same time.

I'd do a combination of death and farming. Death spamming is kinda boring, and with the current farm drops from raptors or vaettirs you will get so many drops. Might even be worth to trade the booze for sweets if you don't need the drunk title.

A dualvamp on top of the BiPing might help you, instead of 4 BiP's, you'll only need 3, this sounds silly, but in the end, you'll save quite some time.
