Has anyone tested whether we get Karma points if we're outside the major when it ends?

I.E. I stop at the final and get points... then I go to a siege or other arkfall to clear it making room for the next major to drop in the hopes that it will be a new event major. When the major ends... I get my two items obviously but won't see the purchase completed box. I know some people were talking about running a mule with Karma and a regular toon who was going to get points then leave the red zone. But I never heard the results of the experiment. So if anyone has feed back it would be greatly appreciated :D

this kind of questions i suspect only the developers can answer,one can speculate,but we dont have access to how it was coded.

No there were a number of players testing it. Alls you have to do is get two accounts both with patron. Both of them go to the major final and get points. One of them leaves the major and goes and does other stuff on the same shard/phase but outside the red zone of the event major. If both toons get a Karma drop around teh same time then it's confirmed that Karma does indeed work whether you stay to see the final screen and purchase complete or not.


This is kind of an important thing to know for numerous reasons but one example would be that sometimes you might have two (or more) event majors going on at the same time, on the same shard. If you get points at both of them and then the one you're not at finishes first... do you get Karma for both then as well? I would really appreciate a Dev answering this but am not expecting it. I do however know that there were a few players with numerous accounts that each had patron testing this during the last couple of event. So I figure eventually someone who knows will see this :D

Here's hoping and Cheerio everyone.

You must be at a Major upon completion in order to receive Karma.

Did you get a "Purchase Complete" letting you know you recieved Karma?

If you hit two majors say one at the fork and one at BB on the same shard... and then you stay to finish the one you got the points on second while the first one ends... you will get rewards from the first one... but since you don't see the actual rewards screen there you don't get the karma credit for it. Makes it a pain when two majors start at the same time but whatcha gonna do. Basically if you don't see the rewards screen come up with the purchase completed then you don't get the karma credit.

Yeah, I think it used to work but pretty sure when Trion realized people were doing this they patched it to be that way. I mean, it's all about how they deem players SHOULD play. Obviously they don't like the idea of players hopping from arkfall to arkfall like that. Since this game is much like a casino, it'd be like putting one quarter in while pulling multiple slots at once. House needs to keep it's advantage over the player. House rules.

I think karma should be rewarded just like regular rewards... if the arkfalls are in the same phase as you - you get the karma from the arkfalls.

Pretty crappy that if we get 2 or 3 arkfalls in the same phase we have to be at each one's completion to get karma. Trying to get an entire zone of randies to go to a certain arkfall first, then the other(s) in a particular order is like trying to ask a rock a question and expecting the rock to answer.

More often than not, it's: these randies over here feel their arkfall is the right one to be at just because they're already at it, and those randies over there feel the same, and neither are willing to teleport to work together as a zone so everyone maximizes their karma gain.
