It's too bad you quit over having to spend 10 minutes a day making some gold in a Korean grinder.

If you think the amount of gold you get is so wildly valuable why not buy some APEX yourself and list them so not only would you not have to grind for patron but you'd also not have to worry about grinding for gold either.

Personally, I wouldn't pay 10 bucks for such a tiny amount of gold when you can get it for such little effort, but people value things differently.
