The only time I really ever had to farm was for Naga City (From 10,000 to 0 and then back up to 2000).
Plus, later in the game, gold farming becomes more interesting. Instead of getting some boring old meatloaf as the high value you get a nose ring or de-animated helm. For me, at least, when I am "forced" to do these dungeons I like to experiment and try out new strategies.
Plus, I spend massive amounts of gold when preparing for naga city! (Dragon Shield, Patches, Scout: Altar, Hp to Attack, 50 gold, Elite Items, Whupaz, Schaudenfraud, Brun Salve, Translocation Seal) This totals up to 400ish, I think. (I beat it before elite items and seals so it costed less then)
We made an expansion and it is awesome. Really, you should check it out, especially if you're looking for some extra challenge.
