Afterwards, when you already know the specifics of the dungeon, the Tronix Bunker can be finished in 5 - 7 minutes, considering that you received help from a reliable party. However, please note, this completion time was only calculated considering that the maximum effort of preparation was done prior to starting this dungeon farming.
Ever heard of Onyx Crystals? Well, hip hop hooray!
