I'll note that I've since abandoned the AFK par of MND's design. No desire to AFK for gold any longer. Regardless if I want gold, a Looting III sword increases the output exponentially while also providing a fantastic about of XP to recharge Mending gear (and/or enchant, if you do so; I don't).
Unfortunately, I can't return to updating my gold farm journal until after the 13th as my Internet is throttled until then. I plan to start working on the gold farm once again during my next play session.
The only reason I use an overworld design rather than one on the Nether's roof is because I don't use glitches. Not that anything's wrong with those who do.
