Need advice - Spine/Fire farming


Recommended Posts

Can you give me some advice on Spine/Fire farming for cash? I think I may have some of my difficulty settings wrong oe the wrong AE farm or the wrong rewards. But it seems like I make a lot less inf per minute than other people.


I am AE farming at +4/8 at level 60+2 using this build I found the forums:

What should I set my difficulty settings to? Standard or Architect rewards? Arch villains on or off? Which AE map?


Or would you tweak this build?


I play very actively so I do not need an /afk farm.  I'm happy to use every attack and inspiration.  I have some cash to upgrade if need be.


Thanks for any advice.

What farm are you hitting?  Are you moving between mobs fast enough, i.e., not waiting for everything to be dead from one mob before moving to the next?  As long as you've got Blazing Aura and Quills, the rest is pretty much just timing/tactics.

For Dark Is The Suede That Mows Like A Harvest.

Actually, 13147 is really not that good. Bosses spit out 4k less inf per kill, and the EBs wont close to melee at times and just throw ranged attacks, making you chase them down. In the time it takes to kill 1 eb, you can slaughter a raft of +4 bosses. 1 eb == 2 bosses, and if you chew through bosses fast enough, the huge toughness upgrade for ebs doesnt make the payout worth the extra time spent killing them. Plus the EBs there have a habit of not following you.


Try Brigs cave or Brigs comicon asteroid. 🙂
