stealing against any monster is riduculous just like it is an most tuen based rpgs. I prefer gem slimes even if I do have to wait for them to show up in a grotto. Sometimes 2 will appear together --- www.youtube.com/nezkeys79 www.myspace.com/nezmcneil Zelda:3780/8335/8891 FFCC:EOT: 4597/7607/7315
Gold Mail took about 7 min of work to get around 35,000. I am sure someone will correct me on the exact amount.
I spent maybe 30-40 min farming dark shields and got 28 shields for about 270,000. I am sure I will be corrected
In about 35 min I could do the Gold Mail about 5 times for 175,000.
SO..if your have decent deftness this way seems much better way to make money. Beside the gold mail way gets very boring very quickly. At least with this method you still collect exp and gold from battles. Thank you topic creator for an excellent idea.
Are you pressing back so you automatically go from 1 to 9 when you make the Gold Mail via alchemy (would be awesome to do 99 at once)? I usually take about 3-5 minutes making, selling, buying 99. Plus, buying 99 is pretty quick when you press back to go straight. Then it's a matter of getting into the mode where you move quickly to and from each shop and back to the Alchemy pot. So about 408k - 245k every 35 minutes for me once I get into a solid repetition. Plus if you get used to it you can purchase and make before the graphics come up, shaving off seconds each time. However, ya, it's boring and extremely repetitious, and not everyone can get into that mindset to speed through it at a consistent rate.
Plus, drops are luck based, so you can have a nice streak, and then have a horrible streak, so it can work against you as well as for you. Therefor there's nothing to correct you on as the experience would be different and one could only hope those numbers are the average.
So ya, it's a good alternative in the end-game and early post-game, whereas Gold Armour is good in the mid-game. Gem Slimes of course, are best in the end. I should put this into 3.0.
