Thanks for the number, good to know. Not a complaint but that's not enough to waste time killing trash any more than 0 gil was, will still be skipping literally everything possible. If 3k is enough to make you care there's something lacking elsewhere. On top of this Garuda speed farming now surpasses AK in efficiency for ToM at least making it second rate in that regard. None of this is necessarily bad. SE has made AK worthless which translates to fewer people going, plus additional servers sent in its direction means short queues on Mondays (and none the rest of the week).
The situation seems to be a wash. Nothing substantive changes. All good.
Just in support Garuda is 15/10 now and AK is 100/40. Assuming you go through it for all the gil AK takes about 35 min? I was going to say 40 to make it a round number but that's not realistic anymore for full clear. Garuda takes 5 min for a run.
7 Garuda runs in 35 min should net about 105/70 and 7 chances at Garuda weapons for your alts maybe. vs. 1 AK for 100/40 and some AK gear you probably already have.
I have some trouble arguing that Garuda is 100% better than AK for ToP, it might be square between the two factoring in lost minutes here and there, but it is most assuredly better for ToM and add to that no queue or gear wear of any significance and it comes out ahead comfortably.

lol I wasn't trying to say that AK was the best thing to do in terms of getting Phils and Myths. Just saying that at least you get enough gil now for repairs and what not for the day. Especially if you're doing it multiple times a day. That's a whole different topic for discussion
