Maggie Vs Governor 100 Kills

I was playing the first episode of Highlights Missions. Since the first episode is good for farming, decided to test whether Maggie is better or Governor.

I played 3/5 (Level 21 mission for me) with Maggie (Epic with 30% more Experience from kills) in the lead and killed 101 walkers. The results are as under:

Actual Mission Results

Walkers Killed: 101
Experience from walkers killed (Normal plus Armored Ones): 59,071
Opened 6 crates (one gold crate included)
Crate 1: Level 21 Common Hunter Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience
Crate 2: 2 Gas
Crate 3: 33,000 Experience (Gold)
Crate 4: 2 Gas
Crate 5: 5,200 Experience
Crate 6: Level 21 Common Assault Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience

Total Experience gained was 105,071

Worked out for Governor

Now if I have played the same mission with Governor (Rare with 12% improved rewards), the results would have been as under:

Walkers Killed: 101
Experience from walkers killed: 45,440 (59,071/1.3)
Opened 6 crates (one gold crate included)
Crate 1: Level 21 Common Hunter Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience
Crate 2: 2 Gas
Crate 3: 36,960 Experience (Gold) (12% increase i.e. 33,000 * 1.12)
Crate 4: 2 Gas
Crate 5: 5,824 Experience (5,200 * 1.12)
Crate 6: Level 21 Common Assault Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience

Total Experience gained was 96,024

Difference: 9,047

What if Governor was also Epic with 15% improved rewards

Walkers Killed: 101
Experience from walkers killed: 45,440 (59,071/1.3)
Opened 6 crates (one gold crate included)
Crate 1: Level 21 Common Hunter Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience
Crate 2: 2 Gas
Crate 3: 37,950 Experience (Gold) (12% increase i.e. 33,000 * 1.15)
Crate 4: 2 Gas
Crate 5: 5,980 Experience (5,200 * 1.15)
Crate 6: Level 21 Common Assault Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience

Total Experience gained was 97,170

Difference: 7,901 (92% of Maggie results )

Maggie is a winner. However, the difference is not that glaring. If three or four quick missions for Governor can be squeezed in the time of farming, the chances exist that results of Governor may improve or surpass that of Maggie.

Double XP from Kills

Epic Maggie with 30% more Experience from kills

Walkers Killed: 101
Experience from walkers killed (Normal plus Armored Ones): 118,142 (59,071*2)
Opened 6 crates (one gold crate included)
Crate 1: Level 21 Common Hunter Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience
Crate 2: 2 Gas
Crate 3: 33,000 Experience (Gold)
Crate 4: 2 Gas
Crate 5: 5,200 Experience
Crate 6: Level 21 Common Assault Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience

Total Experience gained was 164,142

Epic Governor with 15% more Experience from Rewards

Walkers Killed: 101
Experience from walkers killed: 90,880 (45,440 * 2)
Opened 6 crates (one gold crate included)
Crate 1: Level 21 Common Hunter Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience
Crate 2: 2 Gas
Crate 3: 37,950 Experience (Gold) (15% increase i.e. 33,000 * 1.15)
Crate 4: 2 Gas
Crate 5: 5,980 Experience (5,200 * 1.15)
Crate 6: Level 21 Common Assault Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience

Total Experience gained was 142,610

Difference: 21,532 (87% of Maggie results )

Maggie is a winner and the double XP from kills have increased the gap between Maggie and Governor. I think it would be difficult for Governor to surpass the results of Maggie.

Crate 3: 75,900Experience (Gold) (15% increase i.e. 66,000 * 1.15)
Crate 4: 2 Gas
Crate 5: 11,960 Experience (10,400 * 1.15)
Crate 6: Level 21 Common Assault Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience

Total Experience gained was 186,540

Difference: 15,802 (92% of Maggie results )

Though Maggie is the winner but the gap between her and Governor has reduced. I think Governor has the ability to surpass Maggie, if three or four quick missions for Governor can be squeezed in the time of farming.

In the end I would say that Maggie is the queen of farming. However, Governor has a few tricks up his sleeve and has the potential to produce comparable or better results.

    I know this is about farming but, I wanted to mention that the governor did great in the last challenge too. Even though he was only 3 star, I put my best equipment on him and used him until I got to level 26.

    @zeeblack great analysis. How long did it take you to farm to 100?

    Here are the results from Level 23

    Taking into consideration the time taken, in my opinion, Governor has the capacity to surpass Maggie. However, Governor can't surpass Maggie when it comes to farming missions

    Here is a hypothetical result for 3 Governor missions with 15 kills in each.

    I am using the above data for experience from kills (Level 23 mission) and contents of crates (which I actually received in the 3 missions)

    Walkers Killed 15 * 3 = 45 * 454 ( 49,968/110) = 20,430

    Crates for Mission 1
    Opened 6 crates (one gold crate included)
    Crate 1: Level 21 Common Hunter Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience
    Crate 2: 2 Gas
    Crate 3: 37,950 Experience (Gold) (15% increase i.e. 33,000 * 1.15)
    Crate 4: 2 Gas
    Crate 5: 5,980 Experience (5,200 * 1.15)
    Crate 6: Level 21 Common Assault Weapon: Scrapped for 3,900 Experience

    Crates for Mission 2
    Opened 6 crates
    Crate 1: 2 Gold
    Crate 2: 2 Gas
    Rest of crates: 24,380 Experience (6,095* 4)

    Crates for Mission 3
    Opened 6 crates (2 Silver)
    Crate 1: 1 Phone
    Crate 2: 14,950 Experience (13,000 * 1.15)
    Rest of crates: 2 Common and 2 Uncommon Equipment (3,900 * 2 and 5,250 * 2)

    Total Experience Earned: 129,790

    Governor was able to earn 33,531 or 35% more experience points than Maggie due to his bonus trait.

    If on unlimited gas where gas is of no concern I think speeding through missions is best and governor would be best. You can do 10 runs (which is roughly the equivalent of killing 100 walkers) and open 30 crates and get more potential for bonus boxes in the same time it would take doing 1 run with Maggie killing 100 walkers and open 3 crates.

    If not on unlimited gas then I'd definitely go Maggie.

    Very nice analysis. In a world where I had a lot more time than I do, it would be really fun to create a matrix of break-even points for every permutation of crates rewards and farming kills :)

    I use Maggie for farming missions where I am going to be trying for the 100 kills (e.g. The Nest and Behind Corner for last week's challenge). Otherwise, I've been using the Governor and saving my video bonus crates for those as well.

    Absent any event bonuses for either class, I generally take my Maggie up to RSL 22 or so. My Governor isn't quite as lethal so will see more limited use. I don't use either for scavenge missions as the hard ones are RSL 26..
