Moin (greeting from north germay ),

i want to create the perfect mana farm(MF).
What i have found out so far:
Do not use Blue in your MF. BlackOR is way better. You can still get +1k monsters on one Trap.
put a BlueRBack(W) in the trap where your MF will be. Set the Gem to Random. Anger a wave of very slow Giants to +1e21 hp. make sure no speed up beacons are on the way to your MF. Have 2 freeze spells ready. when there are 200 or so monsters on the slowing gem: freeze them. just the ones on the trap, not the ones before! wait a little till there are more and freeze again. repeat. if you run out of freese spells: send some(2 or 3) more not enraged waves in and/or use a shrine of focus. when you have enough monsters on the trap change it with your mana-gain gem. keep on freezing the monsters. freeze spell will add up. i had a monster frozen for 300 sec max. in the last game; ingame time. with this technique you can have your leaching monster like forever on the trap.

more in the next post.

@bobbybaby

I did B1 I think, 4e6 exp. should get you to lvl 250.
Maybe I did 2 or 3 fields like this.

Edit: Glaring difficulty.

Kill gems in traps not only won't reduce mana farm but, with a decent level of trap mastery, will VASTLY outdamage gems in towers.

i found a new way of gem combining... the gems stay rather low lvl but special increase:
combine g1oragen+g1black=g2blackorange
*) - duplicate that two times= 3 g.x.blackorange
- upgrade one of the three gems u got = 1 g,x+1.blackorange,2 g.x.blackorange
- combine the 2 lowergrade into the upgraded one 1 g.x+"1.6".blackorange
- goto *) and repeat.

u will notice a diffrence at higer lvl. a normal created gem with same mana spend will have a lot more fireing speed and damage; but more than 50% less specials. but since fire speed is caped at 1k hits per second it will work... i think.

Ah...mana farming. My one weakness.

What I will most likely start doing is put an orange gem in a trap with red and back it up with black. Then I will put pure black all around the gem, just like I do with towers.

Main Idea? Red-orange combined with black is best combo. G1 Red, G1 Orange, G2 Black, combine, begin upgrading.

Mana Farms are useful once you have the skills and level to make them.
I made a imperfect poolbound mana farm and made it into the trillions with my mana.
gained 400 level from ~1000-1400.
I will now switch to bloodbound.
However when does bloodbound outperform poolbound?

As I said, try different settings. I got 6kk exp on first attempt (field).

I guess answers vary and it depends on your level/ skills.

xroads42 found Weaving. that was a mandatory technique in Labyrinth.

If you don`t get it... here`s what to do. this works only for Dual gems.

Create Grade 1 of type 1. Place in Amp on right of screen. Duplicate. Call this gem 1.
Create Grade 1 of type 2. Place in Amp on right of screen. Duplicate. Call this gem 2.
Combine. (Shift-G and click.) Place in Amp on right of screen. Duplicate. Call this gem 3.
Upgrade and duplicate 1 and 2.
Move 3 to Row 2.
you should now have:
003
213
Combine twice. Place in Amp on right of screen. Call this gem 3.
Upgrade 2x 1 and 2.

You are now set for Weaving. repeat the following over and over.
Duplicate in this order: 3123111122223123
Combine (Shift G) until only one remains.
X gem 3.
Place result in Amp on right of screen. Call this gem 3.
Upgrade 1 and 2 until their grade is the same as 3.

Replicate the Dual gem as necessary for the Farm or Kill tower.

Seems very complicated, what does it do exactly? Increase specs? By more than 60%? If less it's not worth it. Specced inc by 42%, Supergem inc by 63%
