Its a nice day... Yup time to go pwn at zombies and level up! (Looks at inventory) I must be dreaming. (Looks one more time and sees 140k left) :0
I feels so strong now after scrolling that 30 dex sauna robe ! (Forgets about all the dark scrolls breaking it) Ahh now time to go train. (Trys to buy 200 elixers from a random guy) (You do not have enough mesos) :0
Ok these events are exaggerated but hey, its happened before! (or did it)
Anyways, in life we all feel good to know that theres 500k in the bank.
Mom: Son! Your an idiot why'd you go and buy that 60 inch TV!
Son: Mom, I still have like 50 thousand dollars in the bank!
Mom: oh good. But save up!
This applies to your daily maple life too.
Lets divide this guide into 3 parts.
-The zomg i have no money people
-The im satisfied or rich people
HELP I'M POOR
Your poor eh? If this was in real life, I'd tell you to go get a job. However, you already have a job in MS (note to beginners: No offense) Although your poor, you'd have at least 10k minimum with you. IF you don't, go whack some snails and slimes until you get that amount. Ok, my first suggestion is that you keep your equips for a few extra levels to save money. Not only that, try not to use big Mp consuming skills. (lighting, magic claw, double shot, slash blast, iron arrow.etc) Instead, use your basic skills such as energy bolt. (other classes use you current weapon without skills) Do this for a while and your mesos will rise. Slowly, but surely. Not only that, but tend to pick up every drop that you find. It does not matter if its a 10 meso coin, JUST PICK IT UP. Look at it this way. Your training on green mushrooms at around 2X. If you pick up each meso, ( around 20-30) after about 8-9 kills, you should have enough to buy a blue pot. The meso amount rises for higher levels, but so does the damege of monsters. Finally, there is the :save your money in the bank: method. Even though you may not even have enough money to buy fame, make it a habit to save 500-3000 mesos a day. Even more if you train daily. Ex. 1500 mesos in the bank everyday for a month. (1500X7=10500X4=42000) Thats 42000 thousand dollars saved in a month. ( It also reduces the temptations to go on shopping sprees.
Meh, i have enough money
Although you may have enough money to support you, (ex. lv 5X with 20 mil) do not become greedy and decide to blow your money on godly equips and pots. I suggest not to scroll anything below 5X, as you'll just be wasting money. (Except if you want to or if the items are sauna robes, avengers.etc)If you can, do not hesitate to skip some equips that are overpriced, as if you do, your mesos will slowly go down the drain. The best way to earn money is to open a store and sell your goods in the FM. However, these exclusive stores can only be bought in the cash shop. (see another topic about cash) (real cash) Another way to save your mesos is by avoiding the "I'm too pro to pick that up" or " I don't go no time for them puny mesos" theories. In my opinion, it is much more tactical to pick up that 300 meso bundle than to continue on with training because in the end, it all adds up. Finally, there is the save some money in the bank tactic. It does not matter if your rich or not, as it does not hurt to save a few K in the bank. Saving 30K in the bank everyday is less than you earn a day (theoretically speaking of course, if you train every day) Heres the calculation for your savings in a month. 30000X7=210000X4=840000 Thats 840000K of pot money saved/invested every month! You can increase the amount saved each month by putting more money into the bank per day, or by putting a huge amount in your first deposit and slowly saving small amounts after that.
You'll also protect yourself from the temptation of FM sprees.
Other methods: (please PM or post in the topic)
-Sell fame daily, you can earn up to 15k per fame)
-Sakura celions! Crowded, but bundles of cash will be in your pockets after a couple of hours there.
Other methods (but not recommended)
-Looting---- Yes, it is noobish, but if you have enough pots, it is possible that someone may let you follow them around and pick up their findings. (ex. etc items/ mesos)
Note:This was my first solo guide, so please do not flame
side note: Its late where i live, so my english isn't perfect
