    Very true. I have edited the appendix like so to be more clear as to what i mean by efficiency = gold earned / time spent earning it

    Summary

    1.TC: 600G/min
    2.FBT: 68-136G/min
    3.TOP100: 6-22G/min
    4.MD: 5-17G/min
    5.FGW: 5-10G/min
    6.QM: 2.7-4G/min

    This is the basis as to how the efficiency of all 6 methods have been depicted on the chart in the TL;DR summary whereby efficiency = gold earned / time spent earning the gold

    Please note that these numbers are not a true reflection of how you gold you earn per minute for each method. They are just ratios for comparative purposes only.

    For example, TC is a reward that can only be given once a day and so in reality is it more like 50G / day. TOP100 and MD rewards are given at the end of the month and week respectively. And in reality for TOP100, it is more like 2.7-4G/min (like QM) until the end of the month when the prizes are awarded - that is when the 6-22G/min
    figure is fully realised. And in reality of MD, it is more like -8G/min (because the 200G entry cost makes you lose gold per game played) until the end of the week when the gold is awarded - that is when the 5-17G/min is fully realised.


    Thanks Preybird!

    Hey Pat Jay, do these Wulven guys pay you for doing all this? If they don't then they should. It's sure a lot of hard work.

    Btw, Thanks for such a useful and unique article.

    is buying an elemental starter deck and selling it still the best way to earn gold with crystals? how about buying an SF pack? The cards in SF seem to generally cost more. I understand the SF pack only has 15 cards, but isn't it possible that buying those 15 (random) cards will cost more than what you get out of selling one elemental starter deck?

    And this
