Hmm not sure how good this guide will be. All of the scrolls are dropping in price very fast to. Not as much money will be made through merchanting as before.

It really affects how much you can sell your stuff for, as much as 500k - 1m more PER scroll from a bad spot / no shop to a great spot.

You spend 500k on a nice spot , hoping there aren't any ACers under you, and you earn a couple million mesos more then you could have somewhere else.
Pretty much quit.

Be sure to mention how if you close a store and if your inventory is full, the things from your shop is transferred to Fredrick and you have to retrieve them before reopening the shop, making it easy for somebody to steal your spot.

I learned that the hard way after attempting to close and reopen my elf store. ;~;

OMG

Spot selling is a business in itself. I know someone that has made over 10 mil in a DAY just selling spots. It isn't hard when the spots in FM1 sell for 3-5 mil, and FM2 go for 2 mil easy. It just takes time and patience. Waiting for someone to DC or close is boring as hell.

Another problem is that we now have a lot of ACers. These are also known as AUTO-CLICKERS. People that use 'CHEATS' to steal spots. You will see them camped under people and mushrooms near the door the most.

It's gotten so bad in Windia, even CH2 FM1 has ACers near the door.

- Level 30 - Become Cleric
- Level 70 - Become Priest
- Level 120 - Become Bishop
- Survive Pap
- Solo Pap
- Survive Pianus
- Survive Zakum/Get my Zhelm
- Buy NX
- Get to 400mil
- Get to 500mil
- Get to 600mil
- 100 Fame
- 200 Fame
- 300 Fame

Spot prices in Scania are different, I guess.

FM 1 = 3-5m
FM 2 = 2-4m
FM 3 = 2-3m
FM 4 = 1.5-2.5m
FM 5 = 1m-2m
FM 6 = 500k-1.5m

Any prices lower than that will usually have a stack of people waiting for someone to buy the spot and try to take it.

Those acers are really annoying. Even in not active spots, like fm 7 ch 1, theres acers on spots that sell.

So stupid...

I read over Life's guide really carefully because I need money. madmush42vx.gif I'm a little confused, though.

-Life says that you only need 500k to start, but most scrolls cost more than 500k each. What's a better meso amount to start with?

-Is there a way to make money fast without NX?

You buy the cheap scrolls, 10% bottomwear, etc.

Lol, I can make over a 100k an hour by selling the drops and the tails. In one hour I made close to 500k in mesos

I've actually gotten quite a few good spots in Scania. It's not that hard. Too bad my permit expired ._.

If you're counting drops, then I make a lot more at spiders. Is this including your potion costs?

10% Bottomwear sell for around 30k in Mardia ._.
Even if I buy them for 10k, that's only a 20k profit. I can make that easily training.

:EDIT: To clarify, I'm asking is there a way to make the amount of mesos Life has without NX?
