Banalaty, it's actually faster to fight the NM's if you want Glavoid sets than try and gold farm them, but fell cleave burns would be very effective gold farms. I won't lie, that's a good idea (actually blm -ga farming would be too... bats are mushy but getting amber still takes time.... **** adamantoise). You can buy pop items for the two force pops on auction, and I've duod Adze with a dancer friend. The Sodden Sandworm Husk requires a few mages, but repop timer on spawn nm's is 15 minutes so it's a feasible way to farm now. I duod Adze 3 times in an hour because the dancer wasnted the rdm neck which rarely drops, and we both got the sticky gnat wing. I'm going to farm key items just by NM battling rather than gold farming.
I can't say when I'll really be getting at my Twashter, but it should be fairly soon. I've promised a friend I'd get him Masamune if he helped me with Twashter in exchange, and we began Carborossa last night and he has many Creoin-Croin lanterns so it shouldn't be long. Once he finishes Masamune we'll begin Twashter farming. I have a small group myself to call upon, the core is myself, said dancer/rdm main's, and my friend who is best at war/blm/sam and several mage friends. I'm looking forward to the months ahead.
EDIT: in regards to my progress, I'm 5/50 Glav shell and 17/50 Itza scales. I Haven't even begun thinking about the atthwa boss, but ill get to him later. This path is literally 5-10 times more challenging than Masamune, but it's a fun ride and I'm having a blast. Itza is coming alone nicely, but I only recently began glav so I'm pleased with 5 shells.
