Description

TL;DR:

8-Mod Dunes with 3x Ambush Scarab 1x Ambush of Discernment + Ambush craft on Map Device + Blue Altars. A decent mapping build finishes these maps in around 3 minutes (I probably averaged a slightly lower time). Ran on 8mod Dunes (explained below). Strict filter recommended.

Results:

I excluded anything lucky (Shaper Allflame in this case).

A 3min map time should be pretty achievable on average making this 20maps/h.

How to run:

Open the map and start popping Strongboxes as you go.

More information:

Dunes should be ran as 8-Mod since they're really cheap this league or, if you don't want to trade for them, easy to farm up. If you want to include the price of those add (price of 8mod)x20 onto the investment. I farm these up in T17s so fast that I did this strategy to use up my stack of 8 Mods.

I changed up the tree a slight bit from the original video just to get some more specific Scarabs. The Carto-Strongboxes are included here due to them sometimes dropping 2x T17s which is nice added profit.

You should make use of Anarchy, Frog and Rat Allflames because of the Chaos-related Devoted Modifiers. Getting Weapons or Jewelry converted to Chaos Orbs and throwing on an Anarchy Allflame onto that mod can net you 150+ Chaos Orbs easily due to Strongboxes spawning a bunch of exiles and/or reviving killed ones.

For additional profit:

Use Gemling (additional gems) Allflames. There's a decent chance to get 1d+ gems from those. Also utilize Allflames like the Scarab one etc. I didn't really in this run but it does pay off.

You can pick up dropped maps - I didn't due to self farming 8mods - if you like.

IF YOU HAPPEN to hit the Divine Devoted mod (I did once and got 92d with this setup) this strategy should be fairly decent for that. Don't expect this obviously.
