When the thing started, I completely misread that amount of baubles one needs to get anything there: I didn't see that 250 baubles makes one bubble. I just thought you needed a few baubles for the rewards. (I actually also thought that the decent drop rate was a bug and I decided to abuse it until it gets patched. ) That made me farm the shit of out them because I actually felt I was making progress.
An hour later I was informed of my mistake and the farming instantly stopped.
I haven't done anything bauble-related since that morning.
You're letting the numbers intimidate you.
It is incredibly easy to farm out 5 bauble baubles a day.
Between zones 1 and 2 you can farm out the 250 baubles in under an hour for the bauble bauble you can exchange em for as well as the 4 you'll get in total for defeating either zone's end boss. First off, buy a shovel and bombs to access the secret spots in those zones that yield 10, 20 or even 40 baubles upon their discovery.
These are one-time buys that you can use throughout the rest of your time in the box (the bombs cost one bauble per use but that's whatever).
The boss chests are loot able once a day. I'm assuming this coincides with the daily reset so if you only farm zone 1 and 2 and you time it with the reset you can earn 10 bauble baubles a day. 5 days and you have your weapon skin.
If its a 24 hour wait, then make it 10 days but there's enough time left in April to farm out 2 skins.
And this is if you solo it. Imagine how much more you can earn when you go in with your friends and progress further on top of what you're already farming by yourself?
So it's definitely worth it.
You're just letting the numbers get to you. Get a hovel and bombs and look up where the secret spots are. You'll be surprised at how quickly and how easily you can get the rewards you want.
