If you don't have a weird need to risk and test your luck, if you rather care about money, not "adventure", then I suggest to buy it. It all depends on your luck. I remember when I was low lvl I got 2 clovers from about 50 of Gooey Masses, but then... 400 without any luck. If the price on market is 56-74k it is really worth to sell it.
To collect more Gooey Masses I suggest to hunt on -1, it is really profitable place!
