    Angry Money problems in this game

    Hi everyone,

    I've been playing this game a lot for the last few days, and I am loving it.

    However, I'm just having a hard time with money in the game.

    Normally, in a game, you grind your ass off, and sell your big loot to the vendor for money.

    This game, has a problem, where money is limited on a vendor for *a week*. That means you can only get access to a couple of thousand for selling items.

    This effectively time-gates your achievements and progress which majorly sucks.

    If I play a lot, I want to be able to progress faster, however time-gating cash on a vendor slows you right down.

    I am level 40 in fire magic now, and have done the golems, and sold to all the vendors, and I am struggling to keep up my progress. The cash is limited and I am still at fire spells level 25.

    This game would be a lot more enjoyable if you gave vendors infinite cash.

    Anyone else annoyed with this 'feature' of the game?

    Hi,

    If you're really frustrated at this point, it might be good to check the wiki and make sure you've found all the NPCs. Many don't get discovered right off, like Flia or Roshun the Traitor in Serbule. Flia has a huge cash pool and buys a lot of stuff when you favor her up. Also, there are vendors in Serbule Hills, Eltibule, Sunvale and the casino.... In other words, all might not be all yet. For example, you can get from the casino to Rahu and there are even more vendors there. At that point, travel time between vendors becomes the issue. Heh.

    Additionally as you favor up npcs, their pool of money grows. Eventually you'll work through this and selling to vendors will be quick cash.

    Yes, it is a bit of a bottleneck and frustrating from the outset, but it's not a long-term problem in the game over all.

    ~( ' .')~

    Also, don't underestimate the value of doing work orders for other players and NPCs. Some of them can be quite valuable and easy to accomplish. I've noticed a lot of folks putting work orders up for snail shells for decent cash, which are relatively safe to farm.

    Additionally, you could always ask in the trade channel if anyone is selling any reagents. You might find a max-level fire mage willing to hook you up cheap, as they know what you're going through. As a function of net worth, the reagents to get up to level 50 fire magic for someone in the 80's is basically insignificant - you might find someone willing to just gift them to you, but don't expect it.

    The strength of this game is the friendly community.

    Yes, it is frustrating (probably by design), but the game really opens up with a bit of planning /knowledge of game mechanics, maximising NPC favour and reaching level 50 in 2 combat skills - by level 50 you can farm in several lucrative zones.

    Money will always be an issue but earning wise, you have plenty of options e.g.
    Skinning - tanning -sell to NPCs 225k councils /week
    Casino dailies 70k councils /week
    Selling gear drops (mainly from dungeon clearing) 30 to 60k /run. Note: several NPCs have money pools in excess of 100k each at full favour
    Crafting for work orders 100s of ks /month
    Selling to players e.g. gems from surveying 100k+ /week

    Time spent in game is the real limit to what you can earn.

    Referencing Fire magic reagents: Ask in game and quite often established players will gift you the starter ones.

    If vendors had infinite cash, you could just sell everything to Marna (or the vendor that gives the most for your item, in case Marna is limited), and there would be no point having other vendors.

    There are many mechanics in the game that encourage exploration. Going elsewhere. This is one of them.

    Do work orders, especialy those for NPC. They are easiest way to get quick cash. Other great option is sellign gems to other players. Its great because you don't need to max it out to get to 'good' gems - you cna get the same gems in every zone, there is just difference in recipe cost and what drops as bonus gems. So just spend few hours runnign around, collecting gems. Keep what you want or need, sell rest to players for like 250-280 (Amethysts and Aquamarines sell for even more since they are used in Teleportation).

    Those two are gret methods for new players because they are not gated by NPC vendors limited money pool. Of course you should always work on rasing favor with said vendors.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the tips!

    I have read everything you have written, and taken the advice on board. I realise I have to travel further to sell my junk to more NPCs or sell to players. I've devised a strategy to make more money.

    1. Get one combat skill to 50 (I already have this done)
    2. Get druidism (have this done)
    3. Get druidism to 50 to get flight form (have it at 40 at the moment and working on it)
    4. Get surveying in Serv Hills to 'blue crystals'. (have this done)
    5. Survey some amethyst and sell them and use druid flight form to speed it up.
    6. Sell amethyst until I get 20k to buy a stall.
    7. Proceed to gather more gems and other tid bits and sell on my stall.
    8. Get rich to afford a fire magic / battle chemistry character.

    What are your usual play times and your character name, Zov? I have some fire reagents I can drop on you. I've enjoyed fire magic, but it's not for me.

I think I am up to level 35 but I am skint trying to make fire mage work, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much!
