Okay so I've only been trying for about an hour now but I can already tell that getting gold on everything is going to take years off my life do to stress and frustration. I'm sure I could do this eventually with tons of practice but I think I would much rather just move onto another game. Good luck to anyone else still going at it.
Also, I agree with other people on this thread, it does look easier for people on the pc.
Oh, and thanks for the guide.
