    The listed profit rate assumes 24 kills per hour, but over 30 is possible with maxed stats and gear. Your expected profit will vary depending on your kills per hour.

    The most expensive Grotesque Guardian drops are the Granite maul (208,967), Black tourmaline core (1,858,252), and the Jar of stone (2,435,717).

    The average Grotesque Guardian kill is worth 52,199.00. If the player does not receive a unique drop, the average kill is worth only 45,143.00.

    In addition to the tradable loot, players have a guaranteed drop of 50 to 100 granite dust per kill. The dust can be used to increase the maximum hit of cannonballs from 30 to 35.
