Hi, an all-in-one guide for NX cash here, so enjoy.
2) Buying NX
3) Item translations
NX Cash is a 'Virtual Asset Sales' system for Nexon, whereby you pay for a certain amount of NX, and with these NX cash you can purchase many items that you couldn't before. If you want to see what you can buy, click on the blue C button near the bottom. (Might take awhile to load at first, be patient and wait.)
Is buying NX cash legal, since used someone elses KSSN and don't live in Korea?
Yes, the way I'm teaching you to buy cash will be 100% legal. We will be using a market website, similar to Ebay to purchase a card, and then entering the card's numbers into the game itself.
What market thing?
The market we will be using is called GMarket. Wikipedia defines it as:
"Gmarket is a Korean online auction and shopping mall website, where people from all around the world buy and sell goods and services."
Basically, it is legal because you can purchase these cards internationally.
How much will it cost?
Roughly 10k NX Cash is about $8, but I'll explain the prices later.
What are the payment methods?
So far I've only tried paypal, so if you don't have paypal, then you're out of luck for now. Sorry.
2) Buying NX
So you want in on this? Okay, I'll explain in detail how to do this. Follow carefully, otherwise you could make some mistakes, resulting in nasty stuff.
Step 1) Register for GMarket. (Skip if you already have an account)
Head on over to Gmarket: Global E-Marketplace
Near the top, click on Register.
Fill in all the required information. Everything has to be 100% truthful. In the Foreign Registration bit, just make sure its No. After, hit submit to finish the registration.
Step 2) Add your address details to the address book.
After logging in, click on Edit Info near the top of the page.
Scroll down to where it says Address Book, and click on the button next to it. A new page should open up.
Make sure Domestic is selected, and click on Add Address Book.
Start filling out the stuff. Here you don't need to be 100% truthful, since nothing will be sent to that address anyway.
Just enter anything for the zip code part, and make sure you set the zip code to 999-999
Confirm, Confirm, done here.
Step 3) Buy the things.
Head on over to the item page for the nx card here:
Gmarket: Global E-Marketplace
Do this stuff.
Delivery Fee Type: Pay 2,500 once order
Order Quantity: How many you want
Card selection: MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE THE ONE WITH THE LETTERS GT IN, ANY OTHER CARD YOU PICK MIGHT NOT WORK WITH NEXON!
Hit Buy Now.
1 x 10,000 NX card(s) = 12,100 won($9.89)
2 x 10,000 NX card(s) = 21,700 won($17.73)
3 x 10,000 NX card(s) = 31,300 won($25.57)
and so on..
Scroll down, and fill in the details. In Select Shipping Address, check the box of the name of the thing you created in the address book.
Make sure the zip code is still 999-999, fill in the other details if you haven't yet.
IMPORTANT BIT: MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE PAYPAL BOX AGAIN EVEN IF ITS ALREADY CHECKED.
Then hit pay, you'll be prompted to fill in your paypal junk. Fill in your paypal things.
Step 4) Request the card pin to be send via email.
Click on My Gmarket at the top.
Click on the green 'Shopping List' button.
Below you can see all the things you bought on Gmarket.
Click on the one that resembles the card(s) you just bought.
Here, note down the order number and transaction number found here:
Copy it in notepad or something.
Next, return back to the main page where the cards were being sold:
Gmarket: Global E-Marketplace
Scroll down to the Q&A section over here:
And click on the Inquire to the seller button, a window should pop up.
Leave the subject and email the same, and in the main text enter this:
핀번호 이메일로 부탁드립니다.
(Order No. XXXXXXXXX)
(Transaction No YYYYYYYYY)
Replace the X's and Y's with the order and transaction numbers you copied earlier, and change the email@example.com
to what email you want the code send to.
If you want a translation of what you just put, basically the top bit says "please send the pin via email", and the bottom bit just says "email:".
핀번호 이메일로 부탁드립니다.
(Order No. 293847678)
(Transaction No 293847890)
Next, tick the Inquire with "Text Protection" box. This means other people can't read what you wrote.
Hit Post Question and you're done!
Step 5) Wait.
Now you have to wait for the seller to repond to your inquiry, get the codes you ordered and email them to you. How long it takes depends on when you ordered it. If you ordered it during work time (usually around 11am~6pm KST), it will only take a few minutes. Anything later might mean you have to wait the next day.
You'll recieve the codes via email, like this:
If you get something like this, success! The hardest parts are done.
Step 6) Enter those things into the game.
In Elsword, click on the blue C button on the bottom to fire up the cash shop. Wait for it to load. Wait for it. Go make some tea while waiting.
After it's done loading, click on this button:
A new window should appear, click on this button:
Just click on the left button here. After you should see a whole list of options with check circles.
Click on this GT one.
Fill in the pin things you got from the email, and make sure you select 10,000 from the drop down.
Finally, you just get this after you hit the button:
Ignore the boxes and stuff here, just click on the right button. And you're done! Enjoy your 10,000 NX things!
Find what you want to buy, then click on the left button of the item:
A new window should appear:
In the dropdown, select how long you want the item for. 15 days, 30 days or 1 year. Then hit the middle button to buy.
Your item should appear on the bottom where there are several slots. Right click on your item to bring it into your inventory, and enjoy!
I accidently bought the wrong card!
If you haven't requested the pin yet, go to My Gmarket and click on the refund button. Just refund the card from there.
If you've already got the pin and realised that its wrong, then send them an email requesting that you got the wrong one and wanted a GT one instead. I can't garantuee this to work, but someone has done it before and worked.
When entering the code into the game, I accidently left it at 1,000 NX(or anything else)!
Not to worry, these cards are like prepaid cards, if you entered 1000 instead of 10000, you'll only be taking out 1000 of the 10000, meaning the card still has 9000 left. Just re-enter the details, with values that are equal to 9,000 using the same code e.g.:
