OK
i decided to get the WOE H2H weapon because i THOUGHT it would be easier and way faster.
I did WOE in JP time over the past week, we did mostly higher ones up to 15.I got some nice items like Prosilo belt and Elders grip, but guess what? in all these runs i only got a single coin of advancement, if i wouldve spend this time instead in Aby farming Chloris soloing it i would have at least have 5-10 buds.
So is there a better way to get coins ?
Is anyone intresetd to team up and farm them fastcast.
Also if i cant get 30 coind in like 1-2 days i consider not making a weaspon at all or try to find someone to team to farm Chloris -> glavoid, any takers?
Any tips?

Coins are more common in the lower-tier WoE runs. The upper tier runs tend to drop the items for 95 and 99 WoE weapons as well as nicer AH-salable items.

A day or two might be pushing it, but a week of WoE runs will probably yield you enough coins for several weapons. The issue being that it’s hard to push for one specific type of coin. But if you keep going you’ll generally get enough coins to do a few weapons at once.

chloris may be a pain, but in my experience, WoE isnt much faster/easier

WoE is "easier", just not necessarily "faster".

Tradeoff. Go.

Not neccesarily.
I could easily farm and solo/box Chloris.
And then make shouts for Ulhadshi.
Wich on WOE you cant solo duo any flux.maby seven but thats it.
So actually i think farming 50 chloris buds and 50 ulhadshi fangs is more easy than getting 50 WOE coins. And also in my experience faster , and all that for a inferior weapon ........

Pretty sure WoE weapons are 30 coins, not 50 coins but generally speaking I dont know if it changes things much. WoE weapons are mainly just luck, sometimes you can build them really fast, other times you cant.

Sounds like you'd be happier with an emp. And if you can box chloris you can easily box ulhuadshi.

I never said coins are 50 ;P, but droprate is terrible, i was lucky if i got 1 coin in 10 long runs.

Propably but still very timeconsuming, ill propably not be able to finish it to 85 if i start it because my time is limited, and it will get very borinig after some time.

At least with emps you're not stuck with the randomness of coin drops. Just something to consider.

Honestly only WoE weapon worth it these days is gun, upgrading the last stages of these weapons are retardedly stupid, and apart from the gun, they're all rather bad if kept at lower stages..
H2H, might aswell merit SS.
Sword, might aswell merit Req.
Scythe, lol.
GS, lol.
GA, just merit Upheaval.
Katana, meh.
Dagger, meh.

As the gun uses wildfire, which is'nt based on weapon dmg, it'll be an ok option, but seeing as Armageddon is really simple to make, should really just do that instead.
I'm sorry, I know this is completely offtopic, but it's way better to just get a few people together and make emps than get people together to do woe for coins.

In my experience, if your going to do all the NM trials and VNM, may as well go big and get the 85/90 empyrean. Aftermath is absolutely worth it.

Farming boxes is only really faster if you either have a huge amount of people or are farming both glavoid and chloris at the same time with 3+ people.

Sorry dont mean to hijack your thread but I had a quick question. Is it possible to still solo for coin in WoE by killing just regular mobs? I saw a thread about needing to complete a flux to get a chest now. I was thinking of making a weapon or 2 and was hoping this could still be done solo on my down time since I get off work so much earlier than everyone else I know. Thanks

nope :/ no you need to clear the walk and that together with the low droprate makes WoE weapons at least same as hard and timeconsuming as the real thing. thats SE Balance

Do flux 7 only , a few smn's is all that's needed. You will get coins to make a few weapons at the same time. It won't take more then a few nights if your on at Jp time. These are great weapons, there just not top teir, I have the h2h and it blows that crappy SS ws away while I farm a normal vere. You can use the other weapons on jobs you don't play much as a bonus.

I went in months ago thinking i'd throw together the GA just to have Ukko's Fury. Fast forward to present day, I have almost 30 of all types of coins, but only 2 glory... Such a waste of time.

Flux 5 can be done with five people. Flux 7 can be duo'd although i've only seen it with a very awesome RDM. The lower fluxes do yield more coins and so the draw to WOEs is different & competing for individuals. The lower fluxes are not all easy. Flux 3 and 8 will just get you killed without a large amount of people. I try to mix things up on the runs I do on Leviathan..... so people don't start screaming. We do: 3, 5, 7(sometimes), 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15. The other fluxes just don't seem to be worth the time = money.
You can always talk to the moogle again and change your mind?
