    The “whale” I’m referring to here is twofold - my own status as a P2W player, as well as our favourite in-game whale, Geosgaeno.

    Like many players. I’ve spent countless hours (and refills) farming this guy. Even before JS was a thing. Farming D250 Torment was not fun, or fast...

    So to show how much powercreep has taken place, here’s my current, most efficient farming of FFX Torment JS.

    Is it still worth it at 60 stam?

    Yes. Guaranteed 3 major dark orbs for 60 stam > 80 stam where you're lucky to get 2. Also, no gil cost up-changing greater orbs into major orbs. Just a matter of whether you have the patience to flee and fight while checking ffrkreeper or not. Also Ken stole my analogy!! :p

    My ASBs didn't quite get me a kill, maybe with tweaking I can do it, but I run this and it's at least as fun!

    Yes, should have stated earlier that @Starkiller’s vid and vid title were the inspiration for this post. :)

    Haha no worries. I love the ASB video. I may switch to this even though it wasn't consistent for me because it's super quick.

    Wouldn't 4* magicite be the best rates though? Much more of a pain to farm though.

    Best thing to farm with magicite are crystals. Once 5-star come along we lose that farm. Also keystones are a limited resource (for now) whereas torments aren't. Plus at 4-star, you get 1 orb per 20 stam, so same orbs / stamina, but a lot less effort with torments as you saw above!

    Like Star said, the limited nature of keystones means I’ll focus them on crystals. And that’s after I farm all the Magicites needed (two of each empower and one of each resist element).

    For major orbs, Torment gives the best deal given their guaranteed drop rates, and unlimited (subject to stamina) nature.

    As for dailies, I would focus on crystal farming there too.
