Path of Fire Openworld Events Unrewarding or no?

I've been noticing that, no matter how much effort you put into them, they give you awful rewards from items to currency. I thought that the more difficult the area is, the more rewarding it is, but it's the exact opposite. Is there something I'm missing or what exactly is going on?

    You can use the Wiki to approximate what events reward Gold/Karma/XP-wise. The loot may depend on how much Magic Find you have, and whether it is a Meta event, or just some mobs. Certain events are considered farms and are found rewarding. You can learn about most of them just be reading the forums.

    Welcome to Tyria, and good luck.

    Well, it doesn't make sense for a level 80 event, like the stampede of Choyas, to give 88 copper. Shouldn't it give more or is there a good reason why it's so low?

    Why should it give more?

    Well pof is easier then hot so should reward less.

    Really? I find PoF is harder, but should you really get rewarded so little like you're not in a level 80 area?

    You get rewarded as much as level 80 core maps.

    Well, what is the approximate range for currency and items?

    Guess it just felt like the more difficult an area is, the more rewards it should give. Didn't think it went by level.
