Low-Cost Efficient Farming

PP-19

See the below video guide by neokai#4171 for a full demonstration.

Requirements: 

Five-SeveN

See the below video guide by ksham#0001 for a full demonstration.

Requirements: 

  • Zas M21 with enough Damage/SL to one-shot the Jaegers

  • Sei or any other HG 

E-2: Mission Dinergate

Min Farming Reqs: 

  • 1 Echelon, 1AR/1HG/1SMG or 1AR/1HG depending on Equipment and Fairies
  • 1 Dummy

Which enemies do you want to farm?

Limited Drop locations 1-2

The Striker and Guard near the Command Post both can drop SRS. The Striker is the prefered farming target, as the Guards protect a group of Jaegers and Guards have higher HP than the Dinergates shielding the Strikers. 

Farming Route:

Step one of farming route

Deploy your Combat Echelon on the Command Post and move right to kill the Striker. 

Step two farming route for 1-2

Deploy a Dummy Echelon on the Command Post, and move your Combat Echelon back to swap them onto the Command Post. 

Retreat your Farming Echelon, and restart the map. 

Writers Note: You can take an extra turn to farm the Guard/Jaeger squad, but this does have a higher requirement to pull off and is not generally recommended if you would take substantial damage from this node. 

E-3: X-Dinergate

Min Farming Reqs: 

  • 1 Combat Echelon, 1AR/1HG/1SMG
    • Zas M21 may speed this up if used with higher rarity fairies. 
  • 1 Dummy

Which enemies do you want to farm?

Highlighted enemies that provide limited drops

While Night conditions obstruct vision, the enemies to farm are positioned on the accessible Radar nodes in the North and South of the Map.

Either enemy can be farmed. The Southern Radar is substantially less damaging to fight, but there are suspicions that its drop rate is also much worse - many foreign players needed thousands of runs to farm a limited drop from the southern node.

Farming Route:

North

Farming route for the top node in Christmas Chapter 3

Deploy a Dummy on the Northeastern Heliport, and your Farming Echelon on the Command Post (or vice versa). Move your Combat Echelon two nodes to kill the Brute on the Radar, then back onto its original location and retreat.

The North node is much harder, but is rumored to have a higher drop rate. 

South

E-3 farming route

Deploy a Dummy on the Command Post, and your Farming Echelon on the Southeastern Heliport. Move two nodes left to kill the Brute on the Radar, then back to the Heliport and retreat.

E-4: Ode to Gifts

Min Farming Reqs: 

  • 1 Full Combat Echelon (RFHG or ARHG recommended)

  • 1 Dummy

Fairy usage will lower these requirements significantly. M4 Mod III and 2HGs is also a decent farming Echelon when paired with a strong Fairy. 

Which enemies do you want to farm?

Highlighted farmable enemies on E-

The two enemies shown here are the best farmable sources of drops on this map. Bosses Destroyer and Gager also drop the Limited Dolls, but getting to them is a much more significant investment of time and resources, and thus is not worthwhile. 

Which enemy you farm will depend on how actively you wish to play. 

The Brute is an ‘easier’ kill, but features 3 Jaguars (mortar enemies), which without very high upfront damage will require Micro to avoid. The Guard is a ‘traditional’ Guard/Jaeger combo that can deal plenty of Damage and is dispatched easily by backline-targeting units such as RFs.

Farming Route:

AFK (Guard/Jaeger kill)

Guard/Jaeger farming route

Deploy a Dummy on the Command Post and a Combat Echelon on the upper Heliport. Move the Combat Echelon two nodes right to kill the Guard, then move it back left two nodes and retreat. Restart the map and repeat as needed. 

Active (Jaguar kill):

Brute Farming Route

Deploy the Dummy to the North and your Combat Echelon on the Command Post. Move left twice and engage the Brute, being careful of the Jaguar shells. Return to the Command Post, retreat and restart.

Although this node is a more active farm, it is suspected to have a higher drop rate, similiar to the upper Radar node in 1-3.
