Splunk Search

Is there a more efficient method than using join to combine searches?

Path Finder

I was just wondering what more efficient methods there are when combining searches than using | join. I always hear everyone telling me that joins are a last resort because they aren't the most efficient way to combine searches. Any thoughts?
