I agree, the grind for the Stout Alemental wasn't bad at all. A pleasant surprise plus a new pet!
You can also assign a keybind to the Extra Action Button. I believe it's under Action Buttons/Bar in the Keybinds window.
Whichever you prefer, keybind or macro, do it before you start the ram racing quests. The quest to collect as many tokens as you can within 4 minutes starts very abruptly, so you want to be ready with your bind/macro.
Don't forget to kill the holiday boss once per day for tokens too. GL everyone!
