It's 1.5mil to make, 5mil for an emblem.

What about to get the max number of slots?

It will cost more money each time you upgrade for more slots

The max number use to be 30 slots. I hear there can be more over to 50+

Yo one way to get money quickly right now is by selling candy. They go for about 5k-10k each. You get them from killing any monster. But that is really really really really slow. So waht you do is go to channel 1 of your world and go to the place immediatly left of ellinia. The place with slimes, stumps and greenmushrooms. Hang around there and kill stuff cause they spawn quickly. Also buy all the candy from the noobs that are there. They will sell their candy for about 1k each. And there are tons of them. Also they hav multiple candies each. In an hour its easy to get around 25 candies. Then go back to Henesys and sell them for 5k each. You just made 4k per candy which is 100k. Repeat this from time to time and youll be rich. I got around 1 mil after a like 3-4 hours. But don't stay there for a long time. You have to buy the candy for an hour then log off and go again a few hours later so the noobs can get candy again.

Another way to get rich is to sell items from PQs, in khaini the 10% scrolls sell for at LEAST 300k! That would make a great profit, but then it's a gamble because you don't always get a scroll.

Selling scrolls from pq is a great idea, also if you get some scrolls from quest that you don't need just sell em.
Remember to be yourself...unless you suck.

I usually do the exact opposite of what stephen tells us to do. I go in the fm and buy things that are drastically underpriced because a) the person put the wrong price or mush1g.gif it was a teaser item. Then I sell the items for profit on basil or by random advertising in the fm.........I really could use an fm store.

Much thanks to an anonymous person (Faded) for creating the sig. ^^

This question has been answered multiple times. He said you should start off by selling spots to get money. Then when you have a decent amount of money, start buying items cheap and reselling them expensive. It's that easy.

If you have extra NX, buy Gacha to get some free scrolls.

Also, instead of the paper thing, you can also use Excel if you have another computer close buy. The other comp doesn't need internet access.

Gacha = waste of money. Don't do it, use the money to get a mushroom house instead.

Kind of late, but my friend has made 85m from Gachas and FM.

Also; Sakura Cellions is always an option. Monster drops should be added.

You have to find a place where you can actually set up a store. To sell a spot, simply put up something cheap like a monster card for whatever you want to sell the spot for.

The easiest time to get good FM spots is at Server Checks. You just log off at the spot you want to make, and once the server check is done you log on and not alot of people will be on, and you set up your shop that way. That's how I got a FM3 shop and sold for good cash mush1n.gif

Then I just found an empty FM 5 spot and sold zteeth xD

Basically if you're in the low levels, like in the 30's, do Sakura Cellions. If you're high lvl'd, then zombie teeth are great way to make cash.

What is the Black Star? Is it the cat with the black shades, the black car? Is it shinin from very far, to where you are? It is commonplace and different. Intimate and distant. Fresher than an infant

Wow amazing, Can someone clarify something to me? When someone DC's what do these ACers do?

If someone DC's, the person automatically takes the persons spot by making a shop there? How would you go about selling your spot? They pay you first then you do what?

QUOTE(Stephen @ Jul 23 2007, 03:19 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Now you all want to know how to get from zero to a couple hundred million in a short time span. It can be done with quite a bit of hard work.

First, you need some Nexon Cash. The more, the merrier.

Part 1: Nexon Cash
Nexon Cash is critical to gaining mesos. You do not have to waste a lot of gachapon, you simply need a store permit. Below is a list of possible stores that are economical.

1. Standard Regular Store permit (18 slots)
This costs 1.8k NX and you can live for about 3 months with this, however, you will not be able to maintain a good FM spot as you will disconnect and ACers will be there to get you. More on ACers in a bit. You will also not be able to restock your store, however, there is no time limit on how long you can be there unless you disconnect or close on will.

2. Two week Mushroom House (16 slots)
This costs roughly 10k NX, but lasts two weeks. You can refresh the store (meaning you it gives you money and clears up a slot) and you can maintain the store at any time. It will not disconnect and you don't have to leave your computer on as it is a NPC. Only con is that it self closes after 24 hours, so you will have to "reset" the store every 24 hours. More on resetting later.


Basically, the cheapest way is to get the regular store permit, but then you can't play MapleStory. Getting the Mushroom house is the most convient way, however if you don't have money to waste, get the regular store permit.

Section Two: Getting Starting Mesos

You need mesos to start any sort of business. It's fairly easy in the world of the free market. First, find any spot between FM 1 through FM 6 in Channel 1 of your world and sell it. To sell a spot, put one single item up and then set a price on it. Different FMs have different prices, so follow this chart.

FM 1 - 2 Million Mesos
FM 2 - 2 Million Mesos
FM 3 - 500k
FM 4 - 100k
FM 5 - 50k
FM 6 - 10k

It's hard to find spots in FM 1 and FM 2, so just try to find any. Once you have 500k mesos, you're ready to start.

Section Three: Price collection

In order to be successful, you will need to know the prices in the free market. Get a sheet of paper out and draw three columns. The first column is 10% scrolls, second is 60% scrolls and the third is 100% scrolls.

The next step is a very time consuming one, but fairly easy. Go through every single shop in the Free market and find scrolls that have been sold (grayed out). Write down that scroll in the approiate column and put the price. If the same scroll is found later and was sold for a higher price, change it to the higher price on your sheet of paper. Keep collecting prices until you've got over 50 different scrolls. Now you're set.

Section Four: Shopping

It's time to shop. If you're lazy and don't like to communicate, simply find scrolls in the free market and try to find them at a price that is way below the price you've marked on your piece of paper. For example, if a Wand for Att 60% scroll on your sheet of paper is 1.8 million mesos, and someone is selling for 1 million, buy it.

Once you've used up all your mesos or your inventory is full, it's time to set up your store.

However, if you do like to communicate with people, you can go to either the Kerning City Party quest and channel surf saying "Buying scrolls" and try to convince people to sell a scroll to you at a lower price than the one on your piece of paper or go to other locations listed below:

Kerning City PQ
Ludibrium PQ
Orbis PQ
Free Market 1 Channel 1 or Channel 2

I find Ludi PQ is most effective. Remember to channel surf and be friendly.

Section Five: FM Spots

FM Spots are crucial to having business. The better the FM, the better the sales. Try your best to get a spot in FM 1, 2, or 3. Here's a great tip to getting spots:

At roughly 5:00 PM CST (3:00 PM PST), most people come home and want to play MapleStory. Thus, go to FM 2 and sit there and wait for stores to close. Once you see a store close, run to it and grab it.

Another tip is a very rough one. On the next server check, put your character in FM 1 and wait for the server check to be over. Once it's over, immediately login and grab a spot as fast as you can.

Once you get a spot, keep it. You'll learn how to keep it in a bit.

Section Six: Sales
You should be set now, people will start buying from you and you'll gain a profit. From the wand example above, you'd gain 800k mesos profit.

However, you need to maintain your spot.

Section Seven: Maintaince
Maintaining your FM spot is crucial for sales. If you have a mushroom house, yuo will have to close and re-open the store every 24 hours or so. If you double click your mushroom house while it's open, there will be a timer on the top right corner saying how much time is left. You should close and open the store before that time is out.
