Hey all, i figured i would make this topic to talk about which is more efficient if you're new to the game - the gold daily or standard campaign missions.

In my calculations i will use the highest gold i have gotten from the 80 stamina daily rounded upwards - 22k (They collected every damn coin).

80 stamina takes 4 hours to recover, at 3 min per stamina.

Now, after i leveled last i checked my total gold and wrote it down. Do mind that i started with a bit less stamina because i had to do a secret mission right after i leveled, which i did NOT count into the whole deal.

In my calculations i ran the 4-3 map and every 12 stamina secret map i was given. I also sold every 2* girl i got. It is counted in. I did not use normal gacha and sell those girls, but i got around 2,5k seeds.

So without further ado, here's some numbers:

Starting coins - 449607

Afterwards - 472473

Difference - 22866

Secret Missions - 5

Stamina gained from 3 gathers - 30 + 10 + 40 = 80.

Time until level - 1-2 hours depending on luck (If i get a secret mission it's 1 hour, if not, i must wait for one seed recovery).

So what does this mean?

If we go by the worst case scenario, i need 2 hours to level, each time i level i get 22k+ gold before i level next time. This means i get around 22k per 2 hours.

If you want to do the 80 stamina mission, it will give you 22k per 4 hours (you won't level so you need to start from 0 every damn time and wait 4 hours minus 1-2 hours if you are really lucky with the gathering).

On the contrary, doing normal campaign missions will also grant you manyus and gifts as well as seeds to run the gacha with.

This sounds like bogus

I by no means am saying that i am correct, i just pointed the numbers i got and the conclusion from that. I urge anyone else to try the same thing and give me their numbers as well. And please do point out any errors you find.

I haven't leveled yet so the gold count is of course a little bit lower than what i would get in total.

So never do gold missions?

This depends on how long it takes you to level. I'm at level 41 and it still takes me at most 2 hours to level, so running normal runs is a lot more efficient for me. I expect this will change drastically at higher levels, but below 40 you definitely do not want to run the gold dailies unless you want the flower gems for a first time clear.

Why didn't you count the gold missions with your total stamina too?

Because it is a one time deal that gives you 40-50k gold (in the best case, i got 13k from my second gold mission attempt) and after that you are back to waiting for 2-4 hours. On the contrary, if you go with what i did, you will be constantly leveling every 1-2 hours.

Edit: Was lucky enough to get a bonus stage so i finished after 1 hour instead of 2. This left me at 32191 gold gained total after i had sold all girls including the seed gacha ones.
