Yeah, I know the ideal way would be to farm gold chests with a full alliance with a ninja, warrior, and whm killing Chloris over and over. However, with my small little static of 3 people, with one being able to 2-box, I guess I'll be farming the pop items from the NMs 4x each at a time. The only issue then is we won't be able to farm any time but that's nothing but a quick warp and run back with more stones.
Thanks for the input guys. I truly truly hate Walk of Echoes. I did almost 20 runs in WoE and several fail runs and out of all of it I only got 3 coins. 2 of which I got only because I was the only one that wanted advancement, and the 3rd because the guy who I rolled against passed since he had got a pouch during that run and was being nice.
So I've just been satisfied with my Fire Taipans +2 (don't even have Ascetic's Fury) and now that I have a small little static willing to help me do Chloris, I'm stoked.
