Cashflow Problems.



  • Guide to riches

    Ok, this is a simple plan for making some good cash in the very beggining. You may have figured most of it out, or have all the pieces of the puzzle without the answer...here goes.

    Number one, rescue the kidnapped girl just below Land King Hall. Easy quest.

    Next, get yourself an empty chest, and stick it in your belt pouch. (yeah,...thats realistic....)

    Start trading flax by going back and forth between the flax farmer Pelak, and the thread weaver in Odima.

    in the begginning this is long and fusterating, stick with it untill you cannot carry any more gold.

    Once you have a pack full of cash, and cannot hold more, stick up to 255 gold in your chest, and from the chest, drop it into your pouch. You can continue doing this as much as you want. See Slayers "How to carry more than you can lift" guide.

    you can continue doing this untill you have 10,000 gold, and buy that chateu you alwayz wanted from Antenor in Cadamia. (havnt had the patience, so I dont know if you actually get it.) You can also use this to but a hell of a lot of Obsideon for sword sharpening.

    I hope this was a bit helpfull, and please disreguard any simple clerical errors,...I know Oboli is not gold....deal with it. lol

  • That has always been a quite good way of getting money, another way is to make diamons, using the replicate spell on them to make a whole lot of them. Only problem with this way is that you have to manually pick up the gold so it does take a while, after about 15 mins I had about 90,000 just laying there on the ground.



  • the replicate diamonds idea is the best thus far, unfortunaly, its not good on a non magic charactor.

    Also, your quite right, picking up the gold on the floor is quite the hastle...does anyone know of anything that holds more than 255 coins at once? I tried using ruffian and begger bodies (ok, a bit silence of the lambs, but if it works it works...)...well, it didnt work, I still only got 255 coins in em.....that is a great way to orginize however.

    I now have a pouch with one big chest, one small chest, one ruffian and one begger. I keep weopons in the ruffian, food in the begger, alchemy stuff in the small red chest, and other mislanious stuff in the large yellow chest. Mind you, all these items are in a pouch carried by hector so I can pick up things easier.

    Great for sorting,....actually,...quite sorted......may not smell so good after a while either.....

  • Pandora's Box is definitely the easiest way to get money (32,767 oboloi in a few seconds), but that is, of course, cheating.

    And no, nothing can hold more than 255 grains :/



  • I put a bunch of empty sacks in chests, then put items in the sacks. You hold a million times what you need, so if you take something out, it is impossible to put it back in. It is good for storing money, or food. Each sack holds 80 oboli. It is pretty handy.



  • You can stuff human bodies? If you try to stuff an animal body, every time you merely hover over (not letting go of the mouse) the corpse, it says "You can't stuff the carcass!" a million times. Litterally.



  • I know, i tried with every possible body. only beggars and ruffians can be restuffed. I tried everything right down to crabs,...what? you never had stuffed crabs? Anyway, I thought the best idea was the titans since they already held all that meat...no go I guess.

  • Is that to say that any other human corpse can't be stuffed? (I always assumed they could o.0) What about seldane corpses?

    Hey Hector! Come here! I have a piece of flatbread! Thats a good boy, come here!



  • I just raised Hector up a long time (so he can get tons of inventory space), then killed him. However, the amount I can stuff is the same as he was in the very beggining. How odd...

    ...of course, maybe that's not true, he was overstuffed when I killed him.

    Currently, the best way of carrying for me is stuffing up a chest, putting a chest inside the chest, stuffing that one, putting a chest in that one, stuffing up the new chest, etc.

    I tried stuffing a seldane corpse, but it kept erasing it every time I re-launched the game. :huh:



  • After a while you don't even need money. Sometimes I make up quests to waste time, or explore every corner, or make up games.



  • Is the seldane half-alive or something? It's erasing what's stuffed.



  • You know, I never really had cash trouble. If you're willing to steal (of course, not that I would steal, but. . .) there's plenty of money in the game. And as for efficient ways to carry extra cash, I stashed what I couldn't carry in a dresser in Pynx.

    Very industrious....

    But cruel! :p



  • If you want to steal something, just move it, then pick it up. This works with everything except keys.

    And if you pretend the seldane corpse is a chest, you don't feal guilty, or feal like you did something very cruel.
