Destiny: The Taken King Player Experience- 3 of Coins Every 5 Minutes: The Ultimate Test

This is not my own experience guys but I thought it's a good experience to share to other Guardians.

In the experience shared by parzival1423, he learned something really important about 3 of Coins. Check out his whole experience below.

So guys, I have now devoted 6 whole hours of my life to 3 of Coins. Why is that you may ask. Well...mostly because of SCIENCE. And because it's going so well so far :)

Basically guys, here's what I'm doing. At this moment I am farming Draksis on a STRICT 5 minute timer. I'm using my iPad. I kill Draksis, start the timer. At 5 minutes, I activate another one, and shoot him again. Plus, I'm starting off with 74 3oC. Why not 75? Well, I had a spare Wormsinger rune, and wanted to dispel or prove that that ogre gave you a guaranteed engram. It did not, so that guy's post where him and all his friends somehow all got an exotic primary, was just the luckiest possible bunch ever.

So far I am at 63 coins, and the results are PROMISING. I will use all 74, and it will take a while, and I WILL EDIT this post when I am done, so bookmark. I do have a 2 hour class in an hour and a half, so you'll have to wait longer than 6 hours before we can know. But in just 10 coins, I got 4x the amount I got by rushing 10+ coins. ;) (started off with 85ish)

Like I said, this is a post I will edit with the final results when I'm done. In the meantime, go have fun 5 min farming :P

RESULTS EDIT #1: Th numbers indicate how many 3oC I had before The actiavation of 1, then boss kill, then an engram drop.
74.
69.
67.
63.
(Between 63 and 62, played Daily. I'm super stoked!).
(I left at 57 for 2 hour class).
56.
(Went to orbit and came back at 45. Still nothing).
(I'm friggin PISSED. It's been an hour at least. Blitzed (no 5 min) from 40 to 39. Found a legendary in the far back right. Wtf how did it get there?).
40.
(Starting at 35, Blitzed).
33.
30.
(Started Blitzing at 24. Hey, it's late, I thought I'd get rid of my heavy, now I have 19 3oC left).
20. (I legit thought this didn't drop, my last 3oC for the night)

VERDICT (So Far): Annoyed and Tired, and Happy. A strange combination. Got 9 engrams out of 55ish 3oC....so....plussed? I have 19 left! I'm gonna sleep on it, and maybe the system for timings will reset and give me good drops in the morning like it did initially here.

EDIT 1: I'm at 57 Coins. Have to go to my Friday class. Will come back, and finish before the end of the day, easy. Lots of encouragement in upvotes and comments. This is fun. :) Also, its gets me back into League. if only for Bots :P

EDIT 2: Left class. Lots of replies to comments because class was laid back. Starting the 57 coins now. Sigh...

EDIT 3: At 40. Going to 25 or next engram. I have a sneaky, sad, weird theory. Which was that I thought the nerf affected farming over a period of time, like after an hour drops got worse. I dunno. Like really? 16 coins? Then the drops got normalish again
