Completing the Zarosian I collection has a very high output of Chronotes per hour and can easily be done very early on. However, the gold becomes much more efficient per hour at 50+ Archaeology, while still remaining decent experience per hour due to faster clear times. Players should have no issues completing the Zarosian I collection in an hour (or less) at levels 50+. Profit assumes buying the remaining materials, estimated at half of the total cost of materials. Profit will be higher or lower depending on level/materials obtained per artifact.

Strategy

  • Rotate excavation hotspots lowest to highest, starting at Venator remains and working your way down to Administratum debris.
  • After turning in one set of artefacts to Soran, all subsequent sets should be turned in to the museum for maximum Chronotes.
