Hear me out on this. You use explore to farm the verses and once you stockpile a bunch of each verse, you craft four at a time(so the timer will display) and start farming Arena once they fix the double skull damage bug on x4 speed. At that exact point in time, with as many types of gnomes as there are, you will have access to every single farmable resource in the entire game during arena runs, including trophies, which at higher VIP levels, are easier to obtain in Arena as the battle-to-trophy ratio will total to more than 3 per battle, making it so while you can maintain 6-0 records eveey time as WELL as having to fight fewer battles to get to that point, you are going to have the most efficient overall resource and trophy gains in the entire game.
This event just cratered the resource meta AND the value of many resources as all Explore becomes now is the fastest way to acquire the verses and Arena can finally become a viable mode for resource acquisition.
The only way Explore would be faster is if they didn’t change it into the system they use now way back when, as you would have an unbroken chain of battles instead of four and a miniboss. The resource gains at that point would make it so that this event would have to be rotated in and out like the Vault Key event.
