Return TT is bit lowish, but argo just has no interesting loot :( Thats why caly irons are bad, almost all of them have no interesting loot. All my Monria and Ark irons are similar TT wise, but MU makes them just so much better. All Monria irons were tt+MU >100%, not a single minus. Ark irons have been on minus and plus, but overall 100+% with MU.

I wish someone would tell new players to not hunt caly low level mobs.

I have finished the Iron Argo myself, mostly due to the FEN event.

Regarding MU: Argos drop wool, and the MU of wool has been pretty good the last month or two (120 % give or take - haven't checked price the last week).

Other than that, MU on Argo sucks. Argo also sucks for it's horrible HP/L ratio, which means skill gain is mediocre. Mission rewards are useful though - Combat reflexes or perception.

Too many stay on Caly for sure - more MU to be had on other planets (for mobs in the 300 hp range)

The argo iron gave my UL jag arms ;)
I didn't include extremely rare drops, since they are just that.

If ex rare stuff were to be included, Atrax is a MUCH MUCH better mob. Higher skill gain, good mission reward (for now), and a chance on Shopkeeper Pad (worth 6x UL jag arms). And also more MU in loot. It chews armor like a hot knife runs through butter, but that's not a big issue anymore - most of the decay will come back to you in loot. Very doable in Shogun +2A or just some tt priced L armor like aurora, bear, boar. I used LLP16 and the likes for the whole IRON, ended up 94 % return on the IRON - that was before looter levels were introduced.

i completed iron argo a while back (true slog) - when the almitey MA decided to introduce the argo cave and the bronze mission did not count the argo youngs (the cave maturity) i stopped hunting them really (no UL jag armor either). when FEN came out i grinded them semi serious (not like george though) and never did get a claw to drop. But i got lucky when i ran into a lucky nube that looted one and sold his to me and i got like the second last FEN 2 amp from the vendor ( still have and use this fantasic weapon setup: 15k it's yours) . the daily argo needs 100 mobs which is perfect fit for 2 cave runs. but watch out because if you delete your dailies that you don't like and you aren't left brainy 100% paying attention all the time (like me) you might just accidently delete like 1/4 of the bronze mission (like me) and curse the thought of the argo missions and growl at the mention of MA. and hurry the fack up already with the mission update ( 3rd quarter is almost over yo).

Did you have a lot of lag in the cave?
I pretty much stopped doing the mission because the lag is so bad.
If I'm gonna do young Args I go to New Switz.

Yes, it was introduced few months ago and it's really hard to play cave now.
I guess the problem is in some graph effect with hanging entities. Because sometimes (probably then you are far from those things) it still works fine and smooth. Unfortunately there are not so many such places in the cave.

Seriously? Because Argos still drop it like crazy. Well, probably not crazy but very good at least.
Ok, I will reformulate. Reduced droprate overall. Since some VUs (not sure when, I was aways until June), loot tables have been rearagned and specialised a bit. Whereas before (like, last year), all hides and wools were dropping from all mobs.
