      I like to keep those discussions, they might be useful in some way later. As long as the original post is up to date, it's usually fine.

        Great guide! I want to ask though, which level is better for farming Gold+Gemstones+Gems? Morgenheim, Darkhold Citadel or Drakenmoor Catacombs?

          Most of the discussion on farming Morgenheim was based on salvaging for essences. As far as essences goes, there isn't that much difference between Morgenheim and Drakenmoor Caracombs, though I also do some runs on Darkhold Citadel to break up the monotony of a 30 minute "essence" farming run. The consensus is the Normal level is most efficient because you can run through it faster (otherwise I have not noticed a difference between levels in terms of salvage drops).

          For gemstones, the old standards, The Broken Dragon (TBD), The Temple, Crucible of Mawrth, or City of Malador, are probably better choices. During the timed event most players will probably run gemstones at TBD because its faster and a lot of players will not run story board once they finish Act1 and pick up Robin as their third companion.

            Many players are farming Morgenheim for crafting materials, however, some people go directly to the end of levels, other clear all enemies and opens all boxes. I made a small experiment to check what is the better way:

            - Step 0: note the amount of gold/gems/gemstones/materials before starting level
            - Step 1: kill all enemies but do not open any boxes (including the two ones at the end level), calculate the gains. The reason of not opening boxes in this step is that we need to calculate what we get from killing or from boxes
            - Step 2: open two boxes at the end of level, calculate the gains for this step
            - Step 3: go back to open other boxes (7 at sides, 2 in middle), calculate the gains

            The results are follows:
            - Step 1: gains +5 gems, + 8443 gold, +10 rough gemstones (exactly 4 rough + 2 common), + 3 silver ores, no essences, + 15 (silk cloth, cured leather, iron bar)
            More important: 9 green (uncommon) + 4 blue (rare) gear items
            - Step 2: gains +12900 golds, +2 greens items
            - Step 3: gains +10681 golds, + 7 gray (common) items, +7 silver ores, +1 (silk cloth, cured leather, iron bar)

            I repeated the experiment several times, numbers changed little, sometime I got epic (or even legendary ) drops from step 1 and rare items from step 2, but nearly the same for step 3.

            The conclusion:
            - The absolute majority of crafting material gains is from killing enemies. Beside crafting materials, you get also gems and gemstones (where boxes do not).
            - On the full clear, you can get more materials in comparison with going directly to the end of level because you kill more enemies, not because of opening boxes.
            - It is not worth opening other boxes except for the two ones at the end of level (unless you need gold desperately)

              The most efficient "old standard" is Siege of Anderhelm (SoA).

                Follow straight path to Magroth or clear lefts & rights too? Just for essence

                  SoA is not the most efficient for Essence. SoA used to be the best for gemstones, and the highest yield came from Zerg-style runs, straight to the boss.

                  For Essences, run 4-47.

                    Reaching Morg /DC consumes too much time. We have 6 hrs of play time in gold

                      Strategy during a timed event is completely different. Any time spent 'farming' anything (except grinding XP) is a difficult compromise to make. Therefore choose whether, what & where you farm, very carefully.

                        For farming in ANB, especially for golds. it is worth to try The Severed Mountain (1-10), see the post from KurodaAkira
                        https://forum.makingfun.com/forum/et...easy-gold-farm

                        The trick is that the level is very very short. After 15 runs, you mostly landed next to the big chest at end level and just need few seconds to take it.

                          Thing is you might need about 4-5 runs of that to equalize the amount of gold you collect from a single darkhold citadel run, don't know if time-wise is worth it?

                            In ANB event, due to limited time, most of people will not go to Act 4 but only complete Act I, or some levels in Act 2 (Canyon of Whisper)
