So I farmed in both Throne of Tides and Stormstout Brewery. I actually found a vast difference in Charm rates in the 2 locations:
Throne of Tides: 1080 Lovely Charms per Hour
Stormstout Brewery: 780 Lovely Charms per Hour
In both locations I farmed for 10 minutes and extrapolated my dataz to a full hour. This is quite a significant difference. I actually expected Stormstout to have a better rate if anything and was surprised when it didn't.
Anyway, I ended up getting 1080 Lovely Charms per hour, which equates to 108 Charm Bracelets per hour, which would require exactly 2.5 hours of farming to get 270, which would yield 1 mount. Assuming I sell the mount for 10,000g it'd be 4,000 Gold Per Hour, which to me is terrible.
Alternatively if I used these charms that I farmed for daily quest turn ins to the faction leaders, assuming only 5 minutes to turn in to 4 different faction leaders in 4 different cities (which is low IMO), you only save under 1 hour worth of time to get the mount, roughly 1.5 hours, which again assuming the mount will sell for 10k, is 6,667 Gold Per Hour. If you can make just 10g back from every gem you cut, and cut gems for 1 hour, you will make 12,000 Gold Per Hour. Just saying!
I hope you all enjoy the Love is in the Air holiday, and I wish you many Big Love Rockets!
