Best Phoenix Credit Farm

Run Lexington Event Center on Challenging Mode
Takes about 15-20 mins
30 Phoenix Credits (Would be 10-30 Named NPC's in DZ post PC nerfs depending on your luck of 1-3 drops.)
Guaranteed High-End Gear (ilvl 30)
This is the best / optimal way to farm now after the Phoenix Credit nerf unless you need DZ ranks.

Even then, you're not hitting 15-20 minutes until you've got a pretty well geared group. We did three yesterday decently quick. As long as people aren't horrible at the game

Obviously, after your over geared it be faster. Again I didn't watch the video but figured the information was useful for getting the credits we need.

What is that weapon he is using in the vid. Looks like an A/R but it has 60 round clip which leads me to believe its an LMG.

Yea, the damage he was dealing with that wasn't really that huge, it looks to be about the same as my liberator, with a lower fire rate... and my liberator headshots a little better.

Running Challenging is definately the best way to farm phoenix credits at this point... which is kinda too bad.  I was really loving the darkzone farming.  They need to re-up named drops...  :(

There liberator schematic is only 179 coins.  And last night after doing the 4 dailies and collecting my 30 coins from uplay, I am sitting at 115.

And the named guys in the DZ used to drop 15-20 coins, since nerffed to 1-3

Bah no fair.  Can you see the materials needed for the schematics that vendors sell before you buy?  I haven't seen that to my knowledge.  I would hate to get psyched to purchase a schematic just to find out I have a long way to go to collect that.

iirc it does show it in the vendor before you purchase it.  all the yellow items require yellow crafting materials. the green/blue crafting materials can be upgraded to yellow.

last night I got 214 Phoenix Credits easy off different way then that and it is 10 times easier then Lexington Event Center. But in end it can get boring and all. But in patch notes for today maintenance down time it will be fixed. So if any one gets this before server go down and want to do this I be doing that all night until it goes down so just join on me. I have room for 2 more people and thats all since my brother going do it with me.

Here is how I do it Farm the Bullet king and do not kill his bodyguards grab his purple's and Phoenix Credits head to safehouse less then 50M away wait for 30 second and repeat and keep doing that for hours on end if you do not kill his bodyguards.

Off the patch notes.

Named NPCs will no longer respawn after being killed in the Open World. This will prevent situations where players were able to kill a same named NPC over and over again.

Yes unfortunately I had killed Bullet King and all his minions while leveling so no farming for me.  As you showed in the patch notes, it is fixed with today's patch anyway.  There are a lot of other goodies in the patch today like being able to fast travel directly to a DZ checkpoint while you are outside the DZ.

Yes.  It will make it worth grouping up and running more challenging modes.  Right now, it isn't worth doing more than the daily each day.  With greater rewards in challenging, it will make more sense to be grouped up more and run them which makes me happy.

The increased loot in the DZ also sounds great especially combined with the death penalty being lowered.

I played some this morning then the servers went back down then I was 22,000+ in the queue and gave up.  Apparently when they tried to lower the DZ penalty they removed it completely and the DZ was a free for all mess.  Not sure if they are going to try a rollback or just fix but it looks like the servers are down again right now.
