Can anyone please give me instructions on how to build a decent low level manafarm? I am currently level 90 and all the manafarm guides seem to presume your level is at least 5000.

I have the Magician's Pouch. Haven't unlocked Bloodbound, Critical Hit and Suppressing Gems yet. Q6 and R1 are the furthest fields I've opened and not yet conquered.

Mana farming using traps presumes you have your freezing cooldown less than (or very close to) your freezing duration, until then the best way for a low level to farm mana is a pure orange or orange-white or orange-black, in a tower enchanted with beam

Lol no ... even if you look at guides they are lvl 1000+ not 5000. Even though i started to efficiently mana farm at lvl 72. I didnt get as much exp as i do now on high lvls but it did give me like 800-900lvl jump. As for freeze spell. Untill you can get it to have less cd than it duration play like this. Put trap +6 amps close to entrance, put black-orange-red gem with orange in amps. A little further same setup but with black-yellow-red gem with yellow in amps. It wont give you as much mana as normal manafarm, but itll let you go without enraging quite deep into endurance and give you nice lvl jump. After that you can go straight to end-game guide.

This guide definitely works for low levels: http://armorgames.com/community/thread/12295868/gemcraft-cs-walkthrough-and-guide-on-leveling-up-and-endurancepremium

It's premium, but should work with a few tweaks if you don't have it.

Yes, that is a good one. Also found this useful:

well...
white beats black untill grade 30...So start with red/orange/white triple gems and see how far you can go in f1 endurance. (since you have premium).

It won't necessarily be an epic source of mana, but it should get you a 5-10 level boost without too much effort.

i was a little higher i think that you are at ( was at 186 when i started), but three runs later i was about level 1190. i would keep working through the maps and repeat as needed till you have orange and white along with red gems, and preferable yellow as well. when you repeat maps, anger as much as you can handle, especially early waves, and use some points in battle traits to get the multiplier
once you have the different gems, pick a map where you can limit the crawlers to on path at some point, and put a trap, giving enough space to make sure its active before the monsters hit it. i make 16 grade 1 gems, ( 1 red, 4 white, and 11 orange and combine them. put that gem in the trap. i do a similar gem with yellow instead of orange. anger the waves and send them, the mana goes up pretty quickly, pause the game and upgrade the gem. hopefully you have spells you can use to make it active right away. keep repeating, and upgrading the yellow gem as you go. go into endurance mode for sure. It may take some time to play with it and get used to the system of doing things this way.

Unfortunately, all the posts/examples given/quotes in the threads above are not for low levels. The guide 'says' it is for low levels, but the amount of achievements/gems available/difficulties posted are not valid for the levels quoted (unless they finished the entire game at level 80). There are no actual low-level guides for the game yet unfortunately.

The reality is you cant mana farm at really low levels. You have to grind away at the game for awhile until you have the skills and the skill points to put into them to be able to mana farm. And i guess it depends what you mean by low level. less than two hundred is low level to me, as its once you are at that point, for sure you should be able to start rapidly leveling up. But you also have to put in the work to get there before you can do that.
just remember, when grinding it out to get more experience, anger with grade 1 gems, maybe only 3 or 4 ( at 5 believe it adds a beacon to the map) on every wave. This significantly can upgrade your experience. Look for the threads on the Challenge to see How high a level can be reached on just Hex F. I believe i got up to level 56 or something just on that Hex. So you if you proceed from that to complete enough to get the skills needed for mana farm, you can easily get up into the 100s level and be able to start mana farming.
