Description

This is 9d per hour 5 maps takes about 30 mins. the testing for this guide was done in 5 maps and took just under 30 mins.

This farm is a simple farm that can be run on any tier map but works best on T14+ maps because of alters. In the atlas I have Red alters selected but you can use which ever alters you want. Red alters give more bubble gum currency which can be sold in bulk.

Scarab set up
2x Ambush Scarab (make sure you have this split into two stacks)
1x Ambush of Hidden compartments
1x ambush of discernment

For the map device we will want to use the Ambush craft

at the time of writing this for league 3.24 April 18th cost per map with scarabs and map craft is 20c. you can expect to make between 80-150c per map (depends on luck drops)

preferred maps Dunes, Jungle Valley, Defiled Cathedral (really any map that has a open lay out will work)

Running the maps.
with the above scarab’s map craft and atlas tree you can expect 16 strong boxes per map. if you are running red alters on T14+ maps always choose the minion option on the alter. if that option is available pick whichever is the next best thing be sure to read what they do to make sure you can handle the effect.

you have about a 21% chance to open the same box multiple times it is not uncommon to open a single box 4 to 5 times

Defenses. make sure you have freeze and burning ground immunity you can get these from pantheon or run Purity of elements aura gem.

opening boxes always has some kind of triggered trap be ware for ice nova ahs it is a large AO and hits hard. also corps explosion. if you are on a glass cannon build it best to click the box and immediately dash away so you are not hit but the box traps.

you will get alot of loot from this strat so use Filter blades to set up a loot filter and you can further filter out items you dont want to pick up
