In need of mana, and advice on getting gear.
Hey Guys, I've got multiple level 70ish characters, but am at the point where i either need LOADS of mana to buy items that are good for my heroes, or need to farm awesome gear. I cannot farm gear as my squire is very undergeared. Catch 22. If anybody could help me out it would be appreciated. Thanks.

King's Game on insane has a chance of giving an exceptional weapon that will ease your way into Nightmare a bit. That map also tends to drop a lot of loot, though the mana you'll get from it is nowhere near what you'll need to buy an average mythic item by what I've seen. They can range from 100m-300m depending on the quality, though I've seen some shops sell decent mythics for 1-3m if you keep a look out.

Nightmare is a weird difficulty. They made it mind blowingly difficult to even get your foot in the door, a part of it being attributed to the fact that you don't even start seeing mythics all that often until chapter 2 or 3. Chapter 1 is Nightmare difficulty but will not give you equipment to do Nightmare. This is incredibly odd.

I eventually farmed up a great Pawn Shot on Kings Game Insane and upgraded it as much as possible. I then took it to Endless Spires Nightmare. I used EV barriers, gas traps, and towers to deal with the trash (towers/traps actually get a buff in Nightmare), and used the pawn shot to wittle the ogre down. After the first wave, I looted all the chests and left to do it again. I got anywhere from 1-3 mythics per run. I needed a combined effort of 3-4 'godly' geared characters to actually have a chance of getting mythics, myself.

This was. . slow. And time consuming.

The best advice I can give is get help from someone geared to do Nightmare. This is simply, by design, the easiest way to dive into Nightmare. Otherwise it's a steep uphill climb to even be capable to do the first couple of chapters. I'd be willing to help a bit, though I've been very busy with work stuff as of late. I'm at a point where I can do survival nightmare in most of the chapters, and it literally rains mythics past wave 10.

Past that, I dunno. I've bought all the transcendant gear I have. Those average 300m+ a piece.
