I agree that gathering materials, for the most part, is not so great anymore.


That's an understatement. The woodcutting system has been mediocre since the change in the gathering process. The wool fields are overcrowded, but I still manage to get a few hundred in every night. Buy in low amounts if you plan on crafting. The 100 wool for 32,000 makes for a large profit when repeated many times as a grandmaster+ weaver.

Other than that I always buy low sell high. Fastest was to gain money without actually doing any work.

I like how everyone says Buy low sell high

wonder who buy's high and sells low

as for me-

-Gambling-

Im a little addicted to gambling in game XD but it has paid off really nicely on more than one occasion. I would suggest making one big bet every once in a while over a lot of smaller bets. smaller bets will keep you with money so you dont go completely broke but you often end up even or not making a substantial profit whats the point in the gambling in the first place if your not making a big profit tongue.gif


-Mining-

Mining is a good way to make money, I normally sell all my poor and medium ore and smelt any high and very high ore I get. this way im working on a refining skill (although very slowly) while still getting some money for whatever I might need, most like gambling.

-Vortex bossing-

I spent TONS of time vortex bossing when I was right around chaos stats I got a group together with some friends in game and we would boss for a couple hours almost every night. but when I was bossing I used to be able to get 8.5m for an Old claw and like 6m for an Old daemon heart and all the EE san drops were pretty pricey, but my bossing group kinda messed that up for other people.

and if your dedicated enough to it you are bound to get some nice things ive personally found 3 armors and 1 weapon from vortex all of these will catch you a rough 5m or so depending on the item tongue.gif

-Woodcutting-

Easiest gathering skill ever. put on the auto swing "feature" turn up the volume on nexus so you can barely hear the annoying thwacking of the axe. learn the sounds of swinging without an axe swinging at air and swinging at a tree then you dont even have to look at your screen and dont have to worry about being caught autoing by the nexus nazis

also this skill is really quick to level up in compared to mining ive spent 1/2 as much time woodcutting as mining and im an expert woodcutter and a talented miner

I usually find whatever is selling cheap and available. I remember going through six old daemon hearts in under a week for a total profit of over 2m. Moon armor used to be great to make money off of. People get desperate and sell it for closer to 2.5m. The few hundred thousand per sale doesn't seem like much, but it definitely adds up.

A great way to make money with the tracks is have 3 people all bet 100k on diff rabbits then wait for the race.. If you win you get 400k? Or 399k... anyways you make 100k each time. Better odds of winning! If all 3 of the 5 rabits lose then you're out 300k.. I donno I did this for awhile with a couple friends and we made like 700k and didn't lose once. 3/5 chance is better then 1/5 chance anyways so if you can play your cards right (which is completely random!) then you can make some serious money

Is that update here yet? If not, does anyone know when it will be? I wouldn't mind mining again, even if it isn't the best way to go for profits.


Aye, the update is in.

It works a bit strange but it advances speed a little. No longer does your pick travel in your inventory. (after a popup when you drop the mining pick it's picked up automatically before the mined up mineral. (1 less keystroke at each collection of ore and 4 less keystrokes for each move if you moved the pick back to a certain spot)

community events, gambling and wooling tends to do me good, with a little bit of dark ambering peppered in there (i only do this because a legendary 'cutter crafts them for me).

wooling is (or at least was) a lot easier to do in the late night hours when school is in session. while it's not AS productive now (due to recent influx of non-american players), i can still gather 1k wool in about an hour and a half (which goes for, what, 400k?)

and as someone said earlier, playing the market is always a great option.

Making money for me is easy, it just comes down to, if I want to spend the time to do it.

Anyways some good ways that helped me make money was Community Events. You will be surprised how much money one can make with these. Entering Story Contests and Poetry Contests are especially great if prizes are cash prizes because not many people enter these. Also the live events are just as good and even if you don't win cash, you can win items to be sold for cash and usually not many enter these events as well.

Another great way to make money is crafting, yes it is a pain to craft staring at a screen, but it is worth it when your skill increases.

Boss hunting. Whether it is vortex or mythic, you can get lots of money from sents and bosses. I find Keys sell great and they usually can sell for 10k to 12k a piece.

Because I'm an elixir fanatic, I collect A LOT of dyes. Usually dyes sell for 1k a piece, but I lilke to sell mine for 500 coins a piece as I find more customers who rather buy at 500c to 1k each.

I used to be able to consistently gather 1k wool in 35-40 minutes in the nagnang wool fields. Last time I did this was around December. Earlier in the thread people were talking about a supposed nerf to the sheep, is this true?

Wait for Lost Kingdom to hold a raffle for a Silver teapot at 100k a ticket, buy 16 tickets for 1.6m and then win the teapot and sell it BACK to Warik for 17m.


Works for me. tongue.gif


I typically Dark amber hunt. I get roughly 50-60 a "rage" so with walk and deposit time I get 200ish an hour.

I get 1k in 5 hours that nets me 900k-1m. I am actually thinking about getting my talented gemmer up to Legendary so I can make 1.1m/1k eventually.

Rogue > I can still do about 80-100 darks/cun in mantis (with sam blood/black rings/wind armor; if theres not a bunch of people in it)

Warrior > About 60-80dk/rage in mantis
> About 40-60dk/rage in Rab3 (Plus boss drops)
> About 20-40yw/rage in Lobster (if you can ever get the room)


I also carry 4 amber bags on my warrior, and 1 on rogue.

Never had the patience to woodcut for more then an hour at a time..



edit: Feels like some places have had drop rates nerfed a bit maybe? I remember able to get 100 no prob @ Ee Rogue, fill up in less then 2 rages in rab3, and it took me 2.5hrs to get 120 yellow... @_@
