Almace and Thaumas were brought up because getting it is easier than you claimed, not because you didn't know it was the best. Two seperate issues. "Wah, I have no friends." isn't actually a good counter-argument for the former. I already ignored the latter because you obviously got that.
And the two people that brought up Almace and Thaumas did answer your questions with alternatives or with basic stat advice. You can step off your soapbox with the whole "can't actually help with the question" line of reasoning.
