Pretty much as the title says..
sweatdrop

I'm trying to farm Orbs so I can make some Orb Aggregate for a friend.
As of right now, I've been doing the Saw Mill on normal, but if there's a faster way (which I'm sure I'm not doing...) I'd love to hear it.
I know what I'm doing in Zomg, but I haven't played regularly since the End Boss took 6 hours or so... lol


Thanks for the help~! < 3

I got a ton of orbs when I lowered my CL and went back to Village Greens to farm Flamingo feathers and to help a friend with his first quests.

the bad thing to DS is that you gotta be a level seven.

Papa Saw is pretty good too if I remember right, and you don't need to be as high. :3

I'm testing areas right now, so far PS is the fastest gold per minute

EDIT:
if you count in salvaged rings from ss, then smob is better

Well, you'll be glad to know the endboss takes significantly less time to finish now.(30-40 mins)

PS = Papa saw, found in bassken lake.
SMOB = Cut half verison of SMEB, which is found in gold beach, in the whirlpool. If your looking for gold, go SMOB. SMEB takes awhile.

Ahhhhh
Yeah, I've been doing Papa Saw. On normal. Idk. I'd like to try hard, but no one seems to be doing it. So I'm guessing normal is the quicker gold/orb maker?

Ahhhhhhhh
Wait. Then where is SMEB now?


sweatdrop When I played regularly, the 6 hour end boss was in Shallow Seas, under the whirlpool.

I guess they've changed stuff around more than just a tiny bit. sweatdrop

SMEB is preferred if you have the 160k nerf instead of the 50k (Donor status*, non donor status, respectively) as the gold : time ratio is better with SMEB.


*can be gained by either purchasing 249GC worth of stuff in one go for 30 days or buying the potion for 160GC which lasts 3 days.

Yeah, generalist ringset allowed that (Hack/Slash/Mantis/*/Wish/Meat/2 buffs)
*Can be anything you want, typically bump/shark, another heal, adren/knife (for Dead Man's Shadow---the newest area in zOMG!), etc.

PS hard is broken, and has been broken for pretty much it's entire existence.

Prior to 2011, it used to be too easy for the gold pay-out.

Now it gives the same payout as normal, but requires 3 extra buffs to keep from dying.

PS = papa saw, whole instance takes 5 minutes

Smob = Speed Mob in Shallow Seas.
You buff up at the first couple screens of SS, then you go to several spots to lure a bunch of mobs and kill them. After you kill the grunny subs (right before you go into the cave with the robo fish) you leave the crew or kill yourself and do it again. On average it takes about 10 minutes, you get about 15-20k gold and maybe... 80-ish orbs?

Sand Fluff farms - village greens (10k gold, probably 1k orbs per hour)
Papa saw - Bassken lake (5k, ? orbs 5min run) <- best run since you dont need buffs and less lags to play

smob - gold beach (11k minimum, 8.5CL rings+ (and 1.0CL ring if you're unfortunate) 100+ orbs(if you got lucky with 100 orb chests per turn) <- needs experience 1 fleeter/healer in crew, prone to lags
