Ok I shall now raise Ely for Cropping + finding Astro sellers. Has the price of seeds risen exceedingly due to people wanting to keep the seeds for themselves? I'm scared of the inflation since I haven't seen seeds in the market often.
Oh, speaking about Mining, Guild Crop Farming yields FAR more Ores than mining ever will. Trust me, and it's effortless, I have 3 mules FILLED with ores, and enough more Ore Boxes to fill multiple accounts.
*uses `cls on paranoia* thanks Seph! Alright, I still like mining *for the sole purpose of waiting for that "perfect weapon" to be born*. I don't want to raise up Ely to buy a hax weapon, I want to feel that I earned it from my own hands and tears!
Never tried Farming before, maybe I could make it to a crop, depends if my Guild-drama will be over... In a week I'll know.
Currently I'm going through major things IRL, hormones + family adjustments since my sis is going to college and I shall too after next year.
Well, you cannot really give advice on Grinding. But I can try to answer your questions.
a) I have remained virtually party-less since level 100, I just started working in parties at WC at level 162, so...you can do just as fine on your own.
b)Criticized for being Lazy? You must be thinking Primes. Almost everyone uses Enhanced, hell, I'll probably gone through a stack on Helix. They're easy to get, and reasonably effective, who cares what others think? Play the game how YOU want to.
c)Any Exp you can get would help. I currently use a Gabriel Set with maxed XP enchants, Kazno Stone, Enhanced, (occasionally) Peach Cans.
I cannot believe people still mine, Guild Crop Farming/Sphinxing is the way to earn money these days, if you're a Bard, or level 140+, Boss Farming should be easy. Just spam attack/heal when Hp is low/spam attacks/repeat.
