Farm OF-7 For 4000 Siesta Obsidians

The Main Stage's best mission to accumulate Siesta Obsidian is OF-4 or 7. For Tickets, go for OF-5 or 8.If you want both at the same time, consider playing OF-3 to 6. Try to collect up to 4000 Siesta Obsidians with OF-7 or OF-4 if you find the mission difficult to clear.

Go With OF-8 For Tickets

After collecting the maximum 4000 Siesta Obsidians (rewards go up to 4000 only) going to OF-8 instead to grind Festival Tickets is the next step. OF-8 rewards the largest number of Festival Tickets, so replay it as much as you can. If you find OF-8 difficult, you can grind OF-5 instead.

Farming The Fairgrounds

Spend all of your Festival Tickets on playing the Fairgrounds missions. Get to the most difficult mission that you can clear and grind that until you get the enough Obsidian Tokens.

gamewithpointPoint!Compared to OF-F1 & OF-F2, OF-F3 & OF-F4 have a better rate in terms of required Tickets and rewarded Tokens. Try to reach OF-F3 and replay it until you get the Tokens that you need.
