How to grow efficient in Bone Zone, giving you 1-15,000,000 gold fast!
How to Farm
Big Trousers, the best farmer, lets you choose the weapon you use to start. Different egg levels have different weapons. He makes 5 million with almost no afking, at 5k egg. After he reaches 20k eggs, you can start leveling up characters very quickly and make 10-15 million per turn. Trouser will usually reach level 500-1500 at the end of a run, giving him huge Greed Gain. This makes him superior to the character Gains for grinding on Bone Zone.
I have been playing around with this for a while, trying to get the best farm setup. The real danger of Bone Zone on high egg counts is boredom 1) and photo sensitivity-induced epilepsy (2). Stalker 3) spawns at 10 mins. Winged Skeletons (4) might be run-enders. If your curse outpaces their killing potential, they might steal a revive or two.
Drowner, at 20 minutes, is less important. He needs to be hit to avoid drowning you. La Robba as well as Garlic with enough area can do that without moving.
Let's get to the bottom of these problems:
!) Boredom can be avoided by simply putting on random music and making MORE gold. Each second of real world time you gain 3 seconds worth in gold. This keeps Disco of Gold in operation with bigger streaks, and allows you to do other things while they work. When your magnet is at least 2k eggs on Trousers, Attraction orb (or higher), all destroyed torches automatically give you the gold bags. This will re-activate the Gold Rush without you moving and you can afk farm.
2) This is a very important one. The majority of weapons in the game can make your eyes bleed or cause seizures if they are sensitive. La Robba, a weapon that is very useful for early-egg farmers, scales amazing below 1k Eggs, and allows you to get things moving. But like Phieraggi's animations, La Robbas animations can cause severe eye damage even on a second screen with incessant flashing. A weapon that has the least visual effects is the best as the screen won't be filled by gold coins and exp gems. There are very few, and they are hard to find.
Garlic is my favorite. Garlic is the best.
Stalker is the biggest threat to Bone Zone gameovers. He has enough curse to make it impossible to outrun and a slow enough move speed to kill him. This makes him a run-ender, to the point where you won't be able to get the millions of gold you need to buy hundreds of eggs through a carpal tunnel. Low egg counts require you to use Disc of Gold to heal it/the mobs of enemy enemies. But running usually works well, and your revives must last to tank it.
Hyper Mode is required in order to outrun Stalker. Hurry Mode should be avoided as last waves are the most important. Arcana Mode must be used for the cards, Limit Break is essential for your mainweapon to outpace enemy HP gains from your curses/levels. Every level you attain and every percent of curse gives you more hp to the enemy. You have to have the ability choose how many weapons are allowed. For best Limit Breaks, you should only take 1 or 2.
To get the cards needed, save all your Rerolls and preferably have all of them before you start this.
XIII Wicked Season. XV Disco of Gold. XX Silent Old Sanctuary. You might need to use a different one depending upon your egg level. However starting with Wicked Season will always be better than starting with Disco of Gold because of the levelups stacking greed. Silent Old Sanctuary, which makes sure you are safe at all egg levels, is best. After that, Disco of Gold will take the money. Last, Wicked Season can be used to kill the last waves of players. Wicked Season can't stack in less than 21 minutes.
Wicked Season will be active in low egg counts before you vacuum everything. This makes it easier to gather gems and run around only when the Crown triggers. Early eggs farming will be more microintensive and involve you for the best gains.
Never take more weapons than you need! Super low egg levels mean you may only need 1 weapon, 1 OFFENSIVE and, if necessary, LAUREL for an DEFENSIVE WAAPON. La Robba (1k eggs or less)/Garlic (1k to more) to tank Stalker with some runs, start with Silent Old Sanctuary. If you have high egg levels (as soon you can revive tank Stalker), you can drop Laurel to make Garlic your only weapon. Limit Break and Garlic have a time limit of 11 minutes. If you are low in egg level, you will need to manually level up. Once you are done, always select +1% might. This adds +1 base damage that can be used to outpace your enemies in mid/lategame.

I'd like to point out that when you get to the breakpoint of -90% Cooldown base, you can become fully invincible with a Level 5 Laurel. At that point, Stalker cannot threaten you and you can just walk into Drowner's flood and be perfectly fine.
I want to emphasize that once you reach the breakpoint -90% Cooldown Base, you can become fully unstoppable with a Level 5Laurel. Stalker is no threat at that point. You can walk into Drowner's flood, and be completely fine.
You can reach this by using Sanctuary or Empty Tome when your Trouser has enough eggs.
There are some essentials that give you the ramp that you need (enough exp for enemies to outpace you) or damage that kills them before they gibe you. This list is short in each case. As you get more eggs, you will be able to modify it to make it more efficient. In order of importance…
1) Attractorb suck in all orbs
This is essential to ensure efficiency. Also required in pre 10-20k levels to collect gold bags from above visual range. You can use another tool for this after 50k eggs. You won't have to use anything else by then and you should have leveled another character instead of using those 30k extra eggs.
2) Torrona's Box omnistats and at level 9 100% curse
Do not take the final level until Stalker is gone. Always pick.
3) Crown +40% exp gain
This will help you get the snowball rolling. Always pick.
4) Skull O'Maniac +50% curse
The skull lets your snowball until 300-400% base curse. After a base 300-400% curse, you can switch to Candelabrador. By then you can get Wicked Season instead of having to revive to tank Stalker.
5) Spinach 50% damage
We need damage to kill enemies dead. Limit Break is more effective because of this. Always pick.
6) Candlebra +50 aoe
A bigger aoe will mean that enemies have more time to kill you before they reach them. Important with garlic/soul thefter on lower egg count!
7) Empty Tome -40% cooldown
Before you reach your -100% cooldown (starting at Silent Old Sanctuary and 2 weapon combinations), switch out Tome after you reach base 60% cooldown or so with eggs. When you switch back into Tome, you will be able to farm more by using Wicked Season instead. This will allow you to make damage ticks happen each frame.
8) Stone Mask 50% Greed
Let's be clear, it is more important that you survive the run than to obtain the base 50% Greed form the Mask. Trousers also has level scaling Greed. You will see an increase in egg gain when you can finally use the item, but it is better to get it to that point than to not use it at all.
?) Tiramisu +2 Revives
In edge cases (or extremely early with no eggs), you might be able revive the Stalker. After you die, the slot disappears, giving you the chance to put on Stone Mask. This is very handy and a flex slots.
Important Timestamps To Pay Attention
There are times you have to pay close attention.
In between 1-9 min, you'll be leveling up all your weapons and either picking Limit Break choices or running around if you have to still dodge enemies at low armor/low killingyness levels.
10 minute mark, Stalker appears and tries to kill you, running away from it or clicking revive to revive tank it is needed.
11 minute mark, big skull appears that drops the second Arcana so as soon its dead you gotta pick it up.
20 minute mark, Drowner appears but any sufficiently high aoe weapon makes him just hang back all the time and not drown you, reducing the need to run about.
21 minute mark, another big skull appears which gives the last Arcana, this is the least important to pay attention to if you're confident your afk farming can both kill and vacuum all loot in.
28-minute mark. Wait for Wicked Season. This will double your Greed. Loot all the chests below for 8-40k gold each.
Dilemma Of Masked Guardians, Yes/No?
Killing the Masked Guardians if you have secret items unlocked might give you +4 eggs, worth it on low egg levels? Yes, if La Robba and Laurel + Silent Old Sanctuary are available.
It's not easy to do, and it can be tiring. It is something that you can do and might give you satisfying feelings.
There are no eggs that run!
To prove you can get the ball rolling with no eggs, I did a no-egg start with only 2 weapons. For a safer start, you could use Tiragisu to replace Stone Mask. It's a super safe run, as fully upgraded Laurel allows for you to tank so much simply by sitting still. 29+ wave was the only mob I could not kill fast and that was it. I've done this with Boogaloo and Tragic Princess and Wicked Season, which I took as my third Arcana. It made little difference. Good running around in the last minutes hunting gold-bags will almost always get you to Red Death regardless of your Arcana choise. I was able regularly to net 240k enough for 24 eggs for just 30 min work.
You can improve your run by avoiding exp for 8 to 12 mins. Upgrade to Soulstealer before you do so to save Limit Break levels on Garlic. This can be done by using Skip Choise, which will allow you to skip leveling the level 8-9 Torrinos Box. It is important to remember that you don't need the 9th Level of Soulstealer + Disco of Gold unless you unlock it at 12+minutes.
Spend all Limit Break upgrade on +1% Might. In the beginning, prioritize upgrading Garlic Tome and Candlebra to level 8 to MAXIMIZE Killyness. Next, take level 1 Laurel when the choise is narrowing perk selection, and then only afterwards, splurge a bit on the misc stuff such as Mask, Attractionorb, and Pomola.
