However, you don't want to farm up too much amber. You do want enough amber so that you see more gold chests than anything else, but you don't want so much amber that you start consistently getting the large gold chests, since that adds another type of potential item to the chest, reducing the likelihood of seeing an "Items" chest by a fair margin. Large gold chests will have Temporary, Powerful, Items, and Key Items, whereas normal gold chests do not have that Key Items option.
Skubsteve, while Dom is incorrect as far as VNMs giving enhanced lights on par with what ephemerals do, he is still correct though that they do give enhanced light. All Notorious Monsters, besides giving guaranteed Pearlescent when killed, will also give 5x the light value that a normal monster will. That's one of the reasons why farming Pearl off of T1 VNMs is so useful, since, while they are Notorious Monsters, they aren't very strong or have high HP, they respawn quickly, they give guaranteed Pearlescent light, and they give 5x how much a normal mob would.
