How to Trade
There are three main ways to buy and sell items/services:
- Party Matching Registration
Vendors can be used to sell and purchase items. You can’t play or move your character while you have a vendor open, but you can use the chat.
The Party Matching Registration can be used to create an ad in a window which every player in your server can access and read. Your ad will last for 30 minutes, or until you log out. You can increase the time your ad stays on the Party Matching window by “ReRegistering” – re-typing your ad then hitting the “ReRegister” button. This will reset your ad’s timer.
NOTE: If you want to sell consumables through Party Matching, you will probably need to sell them at a discounted price and/or in bulk – otherwise it is more convenient for players to just get them from a vendor in town.
You can Shout by typing “/s” in the chatbox, then your message.
From level 10 to 60, if you are in an Academy you can receive rewards each time you level, often a combination of silver/gold and items. Go to a Guild Manager in any town (shown on the map as a blue flag), choose “Academy”, then “Check Ranking” and join one of the highest ranked academies. They will most often have the best rewards.
Joining an academy will give you a nice base amount of money that you can use to fund leveling your production skills, or buying and reselling ventures.
Once you have found an academy to join, open the Community window by pressing “F”. Click the green Guild Academy tab, click the “Enroll Academy” button and type the name of the guild whose academy you wish to join exactly as it appeared on the academy list.
To check your academy’s reward settings, click “Academy” at a Guild Manager, then “Reward Setting” or “Item Reward Setting”. You can only check these after joining an academy.
First, and with the least risk, on the list of moneymaking options is crafting items with your Production Skills. Not only will it save you money as you won’t have to buy consumables from other players, you can be one of the players selling them, often at quite a good price.
Now, you can only have 2 production skills per character. To get the most out of all your loot drops, I suggest making 3 characters. One for Material Composition & Material Decomposition, and two more for whichever combination of Stone, Scroll and Potion production you prefer.
You will want to level up your Stone Production skill to Tier 2 (or 3 if you prefer as you will need to get there eventually), and your Scroll and Potion Production to Tier 3 as soon as possible, as these are the most profitable item tiers.
It’s also a good idea to level up your Material Decomposition so you can gather higher-tier materials and decompose them into lower-tier materials, and one high tier item will yield several of the lower tier items (e.g. 1 High Quality Leather will yield 5 Normal Quality Leather). This way you can spend less time gathering, and utilize any high tier items you find instead of saving them for later and taking up storage space.
Once you have leveled your production skills sufficiently, here are ways you can go about getting the items you need to created consumables to sell. Listed below are the most profitable items to sell, and how you can find the items to make them.
These items are the most profitable because they have the easiest to find materials, and they are in the highest demand as mid-level players use them.
- Tier 3 HP Potions – See the “Get Rich Quick” Videos section
- Tier 2 Antidote and Antibiotic (these are needed to complete a level 62 quest, and players will often pay a high price for them just to get their quest done)
- Tier 3 Scrolls
- Tier 2 and 3 Stones (namely Elrue)
- Item Merchant NPCs
- Kingdom Quest rewards
Item Merchant NPCs
Medium Quality materials (except Beast Tails) can be bought from the Item Merchant in Uruga. High Quality materials can be bought from the Item Merchant in Alberstol Ruins.
Vending for Materials
You can set up a vendor to purchase materials from other players. All you need is one or more of the item you want to purchase already in your inventory.
- Press B to open the Vendor Menu
- Choose “Buy”
- Place each item you wish to purchase in a slot in your vendor – you can choose your price and quantity.
- Open your vendor and wait
See the [Farming] section of this guide for where to farm your crafting materials.
Kingdom Quest Rewards
There are two ways to go about this:
1. Checking out stores when you feel like it, and purchasing any items you think you can sell for more. The best items to do this with are consumables like potions, stones and scrolls that are being sold for less than market price.
You can also do this with equipment, but it is more risky as equipment is a harder sell; people will always need consumables, but it may take a while to find buyers for specific pieces of equipment.
2. Purchase Vendors
You can set up purchase vendors to buy certain items from other players at a low price, then set up a selling vendor later to resell these items.
This is often done with town return scrolls (namely Uruga and Alberstol Ruins), and stones.
Farming for Equipment
Players often farm dungeon bosses for the equipment that only drops from them – boss weapons, blue armor and boss rings. This can be a frustrating way to make money as you will often get no drops, or drops with bad stats which you can’t sell for much at all. However, with patience, you may get drops that have amazing stats and will sell for a lot.
To farm bosses, you will need to spend a bit of money to get started, on items such as:
- Equipment that gives you good damage and survivability (blues, enhanced weapons/armor etc)
- Buff scrolls & potions (unless you make them yourself)
Farming for Materials
As mentioned before, some players like to set up purchase stores to get materials they need for production skills. You can farm items to sell to these stores, or set up your own sale store to sell these items.
These items include items gathered from nodes (most often herbs and toadstools), and the harder to find materials (summoned beast leather and beast tails etc.).
TIP: Abyss and Dungeon maps also have chances of dropping
- Blessed and Lucky stones
- Production Skill learning scrolls (namely T3 and up Vitality, Defence and Speed)
both of which can be sold for good prices.
The maps listed below have a good drop rate for most materials you will need for crafting. Abyss and Dungeon maps have a higher drop rate than normal maps. They will also drop Ore and precious stones (Topaz, Ruby, and Sapphire) needed for Stone Production. This will save you having to mine for those materials.
- 20 to 60 Abyss Maps
- 40 to 60 Dungeons
- 40 to 70 Abyss Maps
- 50 to 70 Dungeons
These materials are somewhat harder to find than most, so you many need to farm in specific locations to get more of them.
Summoned Beast Leather
- 40 Abyss – Goblin of Abyss
- 40 Dungeon (Concealed Peak) – Goblin/Goblin Swordsman/Goblin Mage
- Uruga – Orc and Orc Hunter
- 50 Dungeon (Bonds of Darkness)
- Scaffhold Execution Ground – Vampire Bats
- 60 Instance (Crystal Castle) – Archon
- Uruga & Dark Passage I – Archon Junior
- Uruga – Orc and Orc Hunter
- 30 Abyss – Ghosts
- Moonlight Tomb – Zombies
- Vine Tomb – Ghosts
- 30 Dungeon (Graveyard of the Dead) – Zombies
- Ancient Elven Woods/Concealed Prison – Elf Knight Souls
Here are a few short videos showing my favorite quick & easy ways to make money.
First up, joining an Academy! It’s a great way to build up some money, and all you need to do is level up!
Second, Tier 3 (T3) HP Potions – they’re always in demand by players, so they’re really easy to sell. Not only that, but they’re easy to make, too! The only ingredient you need to find yourself are the herbs – the rest, you can buy from an NPC!
Third, buying & reselling Return Scrolls! Like the T3 HP Potions, they’re always in demand and an easy sell, as long as your price is right.
Production skills take time to level, but are worth it in the end as they both save you money and make you money.
Farming bosses is a decent way to make money once you can afford the equipment to do so, but you are not guaranteed to get good loot.
Farming materials in Abyss and Dungeon maps is pretty easy, but will not yield a high profit as players are looking to pay the very least they can for materials, in order to make the highest profit they can.
Buying and reselling is the most risky of moneymaking choices, as you are not guaranteed to get back the money you spend. However, if you pick your purchase and sale prices well, you can make great money.
