I found a combination of most peoples tricks in a ROTATION worked out faster.

Having finished the game and unlocking the multipliers, my rotation was:

1: Go to Bree; gather 7 purple studs (one on the rooftops if you have the mithril brick) and gather the obvious and easy blue studs along the way. Suggest being Legolas as his jump means you don't actually have to attach to the wall mounts to pick up the blues.

2: Go to mission The Battle of Pelennor Fields; do the opening horse fight (be sure to get the minikit blue stud from 3 smashed crates and the purple stud near the end.) then skip cutscene and run around the boss area gathering at least the 3 purples and 2 blues however, the studs form a obvious circle so I run the whole circle. (Having got this you should have gathered about 300Million from that mission so save and quit.)

3: Having completed the game you spawn in Minas Tirith. Change to Legolas and grab the 4 obvious blues on the face of the building and then travel to Bree again.

This whole rotation takes about 5-7minutes with the load times and is really very short. Each time you get between 450mill and 600mill studs so it's great and fast.

Why I do the rotation:
Just farming Bree is great, however if you just swap from day to night only 6 of the purple studs spawn back. One stays de-spawned. Also the blue studs don't come back any although they seem small, since there are about 7 that you can grab easily that's another loss of 26.88mill.

Just farming The Battle of Pelennor Fields works very well and if you're fine with wanting to do the same mission section over and over that's fine. But the reason I travel to Bree is that, you have to save and exit anyway, why not add like 2 minutes and grab 200mill before you hop back into the mission again. I just found farming the mission to be boring and having to move around Bree just added a tiny bit of variation for me.

Finally, there is pretty much a set step of movements at the beginning of the mission to follow to come out with the most amount of studs. It's not hard to find this, I knew the process after my 3rd attempt however I really enjoyed finding the fastest way to harvest Bree. Because it's open world you can go any way first (do I do the archery first? or the crawl space above the prancing pony?). I enjoyed that variety that Bree gave. But again that's not for everyone. However this rotation method is faster than just farming Bree because it resets Bree fully with all it's purples and blues. It may not be faster than just farming the mission, however if you are have not got the knack of maximising the amount of studs you get during the horse ride, Bree could be a good option for you to pick up the slack between runs.

Thanks for everyone's tactics, I enjoyed putting them together to get a fun experience out of something mundane. If you wonder why I didn't just do some missions; I would've had to do about7 or 8 missions to finish the achievement for me. Each mission being 15-20mins (because I haven't played them enough to know how to speed run), whereas this way with the rotation I went form about 4.5bill to 10.1bill in 35minutes.

Finally; you do get quicker at the rotation, I got one done in 4 minutes at peak speed.
Not sure if anyone has done this before me as I haven't read all of the comments, but if anyone is still playing this game in 2017 and wants to know more about this rotation and what the fastest way to do it is, please message me and I can break it down further.

Happy Hunting!
