Welcome to PylonFC!
ôYou can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave!"

Voted the best friends chat by the professional association of pyloneers and rexiteers.
Archaeology is now the gateway to GW3


Main fc:
Pylonfc

Overflow:
Pylonfc2

Discord:
https://discord.gg/pWJ5WzQ

FC owner:
Weiyn

What:
Archaeology training and world events
- social skilling and support
Where:
W88 for sharing bank boxes, pulse cores and social training


The fc chat is for informing others of the pylon and Rex %. We encourage everyone to check the % when they are able to do so. We post updates in the Pylonfc discord as well to help mobile users and to record the time Pylon or Rex went active. This record is also useful for predicting when they will become active again.

There are long periods between active Rex or Pylons, and so we use the time in between for social chat, sharing hints and tips on archaeology and any other game play. We call out any other d&d events, minigame events, oddments store offers or other information that is helpful for others in the fc.

In pylonfc, we pride ourselves on it being a friendly, fun and relaxing place for all. Please keep it that way. Anyone found to be disruptive to others will be warned by ranks, and could be kicked from the fc. All normal RS rules apply.

We do not mind people asking % when they enter the chat. We have all logged in and been annoyed that we found out too late that the Pylon or Rex was actually active. You may be given a recent call or estimate. If accuracy is really important to you, please check and report.

Guidelines for reporting % for Kharid-Et Pylon and Rex:

Please use hyphens
"-----"
to make it stand out from other chat and stand out from active (see below). Reasonable variations are valid.
Distinguish Pylon and Rex % by using "Pylon/Rex/Oss", "P/R/O" in your report
Please us the full % to two decimals to indicate this as a direct reading. That helps distinguish it from estimates from those not at the Pylon.
Optionally, add the game time. Some people do not have the chat time stamp switched on.
Examples:
"---P:24.34%---",
"24.34% <----pylon",
"24.34%R @ 17:51---"


Reporting Pylon or Rex active

Please use equal signs
"===="
to make it stand out from other chat and stand out from % updates (see above). Reasonable variations are valid.
Optionally, add the game time. Some people do not have the chat time stamp switched on.
Optionally, calculate the end-time and add that. Some people do not have the chat time stamp switched on.
Example:
==== Pylon active 07:16 to 0746 game time====


During active time

When anyone asks % or you see someone joining, please state R/P active and it is always helpful to say since when, until when, or how long left
It is always helpful to say 20, 15, or 10 minutes left to help those who have just joined the fc, or for those to shy to talk in the fc ;)

Ranking

Ranks help moderate the fc, but everyone can report Pylon, Rex etc.
Ranking in Pylonfc is based on contribution, support to others in the fc, and consistent positive behavior.

Disputes?

Unhappy with something? in an fc chat things easily escalate, and your funny comment may be offensive to others, or your very serious point may be mistaken as a joke by others. It is very easy to have misunderstandings given not everyone's first language is English, and it is not easy to provide clear and concise statements in concise fc chat. Give people the benefit of the doubt in the first instance. Ranks are there to moderate the chat and for a second opinion. If unsure or unhappy about something, contact a rank through pm.

Useful to know


Pylon and Osseus (ôRexö) are global events and all worlds share the same percentage charge. As the worlds synchronise only every 30s (so it seems), it can take a while between worlds to all reach 100%, and for the event to become "active". The server announcement is the point where all bonuses kick in and the event buff bar icons are shown. In Kharid-et you will also suddenly experience the lighting becoming more purple. Note that "game time" shown on the RS clock, chat time (if switched on in your interface settings), and your computer clock all are likely to be different. In the fc we tend to use the game time as shown on the RS clock as it is the same for everyone. Both require 100,000 items to be contributed towards becoming active

Pylon lasts 30 minutes, and grants 10% more excavation xp, and 5% more mattock precision (faster excavation of artefacts). This leads to improves chances of tetra compass/tome. It also allows you to find inquisitor staff pieces anywhere inside Kharid-et, and provides improved chances for staff pieces inside the Praetorium (war room)

Rex lasts 65 minutes, and grants 25% XP boost to Anachronia Archaeology, Hunter, Fishing, Woodcutting, Slayer, and Agility. It also provides 10% better rare drops from those including recipe pieces, lore, maul and blowpipe pieces, building resources and totem pieces. It also provides an additional agility codex for every codex drop.

The pylon and Rex % are preserved through RS server updates. If they happen to be active, they will also continue with the time left if you log in again as soon as possible

Pylon or Rex activation have server wide notifications. You can switch on timestamps in settings/messages&social, and global messages by allowing broadcast messages in your chat.

Handing in more than 10, 100 or 1000 batteries or bone fragments gives increasingly better xp rate per item

PylonFC proposed Archaeology updates


1.
Pylon and rex roar
count-down timer
in icon (much like the aura or summoned familiar count down in buff icons)


2.
Add a small fixed rate %/minute increase to Pylon and Rex so that there are at least two guaranteed activations per day now that there are fewer players excavating. 0.1%/minute should do it. Alternatively, make it 1 hour long.

3.
Archaeology Auras
to improve focus

4.
Pylon Meister and Roar Master
titles
for contributing 1000+ batteries or fragments

5.
QuickChat related to Pylon and Rex Roar. "Pylon is active", "Pylon just activated" and Rex equivalents

6.
Add
cosmic accumulator
to toolbelt

7.
Make recipe fragments and lore drop from caches in Orthen digsite

8.
Add something unique to Infernal Forge and Everlight to make it profitable for players to come back. Kharid-Et has staff pieces, Stormguard has blueprints, Warforge has Spear, Orthen has recipes. How about a pet related to these areas?

9.
Make the Orthen collector rewards more interesting.

10.
Add recipes to the list when surveying the Excavation spots.

11.
Add quickchat options for staff pieces and spear tip drops.

12.
Create longer term value for recipes from Orthen digsites, given that the recipes are tradable but players only need them once.

13..
Add arch boost as part of spicy stews

14.
Allow repaired artefacts to be noted to make it easier to hand in multiple collections for higher level players.

Best strategy forů.Materials


Excavating materials is still a good way to make gp's using the archaeology skill. Materials for Zaros, Bandos and tetras are usually highest value.

The rate at which you get materials is affected by your Mattock focus. The only other way to boost that rate is with one of the
Material Manual
, which provides you with a 20% boost for 20-30 minutes depending on whether you wear your arch outfit.

At 100% sprite focus you are also guaranteed an artefact.

At lvl 120, with cape and T&S mattock with all upgrades, and having cosmic accumulator in inventory, at Mosha in Ritual site of Orthen (lvl108 spot):-

1 artefact, 63 materials in 6min20 - i.e. 1 mat every 6.0s (AFK)
1 artefact, 73 materials in 5min14 - i.e. 1 mat every 4.3s (following the sprite).


As such, following the sprite works give you almost 1.4x as many materials (and GPs) per artefact. This is probably quite representative of other high level areas.

It is also possible to optimise your research trips for materials ľ see the research entry.

Best strategy forů.Material caches


If you open the materials interface by right clicking on your archaeology journal, you can click on those materials in the list to find out where you could excavate those.

Use
resourceful aura
at caches so they have less chance of running out. Every little helps!

If you are collecting materials inside a digsite, you tend to get soil (as opposed to other material caches). The
soma relic
provides can fix that as it makes sure you receive no soil.
