seems u r not playing or farming these days.
Area change drop of Caves and specially OI and u can't compare drops with 3 month ago.
our guild farm alot in OI and day after day it become worse
6 hour farm killing lot of boss maybe 1 or 2 stat lapis .
and these tips not work for thses days price. when exp stone reach +200 mil and power lapisia +130 and 15D conti 900 mil u just must farm all day to keep your toon alive in this game . no time to have fun.
just 2 way for making gold still works . buy/sell ap and buy gold from gold seller (as illegal work !)
Maybe you're just very unlucky or don't know all the places in OI to farm. I farm OI for 2 days this week and i made 3b+. So I farm for 12 hours in 2 days and I have enough money to buy PID/conti/EE for 15 days to have fun in the game. I have no problem keeping my toons running just by farming. Even if I don't go to OI, I can farm 500+ mill in the 5's cave in 4 hours.
millitant: if you get good pvp gear from farming, then you can sell it for a few mill. It's not much but when you're low level (before you can farm dual lapis), that's enough money to keep you going until you get to the higher levels so you can farm 5's. This isn't a guide to become the richest person on Shaiya. As far as OI raids, you have to admit doing it is better than not doing it at all. It takes you a whole 5 minutes and you don't need to do any work really. What do you have to lose? If you don't get paid, then you can feel good that you did a good thing for someone
