You bring up a great point here. Things are lower priced in Fantasia and they are also generally rarer, which makes it harder to buy certain items like higher-level boss uniques.
For those who sell items like uniques, secret cards, myshop, or fuses, I'd say that their relative income would be the same in both servers. However, I believe that Fantasia is better for people like me who get most of their income from in-game sources that don't rely on other people: treasure hunting and NPCing monster drops
. These prices don't change. For example: one might have to do 25 treasure hunt maps in Jewelia to get the same buying power as one who does 10 treasure hunt maps of the same type in Fantasia. Hence, it is easier for a newcomer in Fantasia to be able to afford a first unique or a fuse.
As a Fantasian, I also like how it's less crowded: I actually get to kill Spicy every now and then, I can actually do the mines PQ more easily. The downside is that it's harder to find a PQ partner and there's less forming of parties.
~ Fantasia prices are more affordable, but it's usually harder to find rare items.
~ Fantasia is less crowded, which makes it easier to hunt rarer monsters (asides from those instanced bosses), but harder to find parties for PQ and for getting more exp.
