    hello it's me, there seems to be many people who don't know how to make mesos on the server. rest assured, follow the guide and you're golden.

    we start with a beginner:
    upload_2023-7-30_2-51-12.png

    lets try to @epm 5
    upload_2023-7-30_2-56-58.png
    wow! 4320 hourly EXP from green snails, that's 1440 snails! With 1/1000 gach drop rate, that's 1.44 gach per hour, which we can (very conservatively) value at 1.5m each.
    This method is a minimum of 2.16m (expected) per hour. With 100/100 speed, and a sword. Easy right? Let's scale up.

    upload_2023-7-30_3-8-41.png
    1ish hit drakes with a slow(7) weapon, no skills
    37050 (2 jr boogie killed oops) EXP so that's 135 drakes (1620/hr)

    1.62 gach + 8m (helm int 60s)*1620 kills * 1/4000 rough drop rate = 2.43+3.24 = 5.67

    that's almost 6m per hour!


    how much mesos would you gain if you trained from lv40 to 75 in master chronos?
    that's about 40.8m EXP, master chronos is 230 exp so about 177.4k master chronos.
    177.4 gach, 44.35 helm dex (if rate 1/4000) or 59.13 (if rate 1/3000)

    let's say helm dex is 5m

    177.4 * 1.5 + 44.35 * 5 (if helm dex rate is 1/4000) = 487.85m
    177.4 * 1.5 + 59.13 * 5 (if helm dex rate is 1/3000) = 561.75m

    that's a lot of mesos, especially if you can kill fast!

    frequently asked questions
    Q: is it worthwhile to party quest or the like?
    A: no

    I can second that PQ’s aren’t worth it. I grinded all the way on my new shadower. and even with 180 base int, grinding gave way more exp than PQ’s. And the amount of meso I made from grinding master chronos, voodoo’s and cd’s is insane. And if you get lucky with a few gacha’s you end up with a lot of meso on 120 so you can gear your character straight away with half decent gear. You miss out on the PQ equips, but I think they are a bit overhyped by people.

    But how does this compare to the mesos per hour I can make by arguing on forums how multimage and market manipulitation makes me poor instead

    Tldr: the only thing you have to do to make money in this game is play the game. It's not that hard

    I quite literally did master chronos on my xbow from 40-70 so that's doable. And yeah I got rich off of it

    yes, PQs in general are a very bad financial decision. I remember always being tight on pots when I was doing KPQ, then i started grinding when i hit 2nd job, and life is still tough, but it's better

    I think the problem with the vast majority who complain about money is that they want to play an RPG but don't want to farm, good point your post

    I basically did this
    I only did the EPQ because I wanted the earrings, I got that summer event that I had to fish, I got lucky with chair and ws, I bought a skull 140, a shield 15, gloves 11, and cape 6 that carried me up to 16x easy

    let me edit, to implement a thing:
    i leveled 1-45 in Quest and 45-56 in EPQ, at those levels i was muuuch poor. when i started killing mobs that need high Kill per hour (like gs2 to 64-65) i saw alot of mesos

    It's not only that, these items are first of all untradable, making their resale value 0, and I am sure grinding would yield similar exp gains if not superior exp gains to PQing

    if you take into account the time to find the groups it is much better to farm

    the problem is who is lazy

    yeah those pq mobs are so tanky it's just not that worth killing. it'd be nice if they drop some ticket that can be exchanged through some gach like system that can't get ws/cs. i'm sure that provides incentive for non afk and non wash players
