Basics of Benjamins in RO
The first thing you should do on any server is make 3 characters:
Hunting character – Hunter or Assassin (Sin is great because they get the skill Steal.)
Money character – Merchant (get the skills Vending, Overcharge, and Discount.)
Slave character – Priest (if you can run multiple clients at once, make sure to make this on a separate account.)
Use the hunting character to get the gear you need and hunt valuable items. Use the slave to buff the hunting character. Use the Merchant to overcharge all your drops, to buy potions at a discount, and to vend Cards.
The Following is a listing of ways to make money in RO. There are many ways, these are just 5 ways off the top of my head. They are listed from easiest to hardest.
1) Smokie Drops
Smokies drop: (based on a 1x server rate)
|Potato (8%)||Zircon (0.02%)||Raccoon Doll (0.02%)||Zargon (0.05%)||Animal Skin (55%)|
|Raccoon Leaf (55%)||Kitty Band (0.01%)||Smokie Card (0.01%)|
This is for low level money making. Use Fire element against Smokies. Keep the Kitty Bands and Smokie Cards, and Overcharge the rest of the drops with your Merchant. Kitty Band is used to make Bunny Band and Black Cat Ears. It can sell for a lot of zeni when vended. Smokie Card gives the skill Hide and can also sell for a lot when vended. Check the market before vending anything.
2) Witherless Roses
Witherless Roses drop at a fair rate. It takes some patience, but each rose is worth alot of money.
Wild Rose drops Witherless Roses at 0.5% on a 1x server. Use Earth arrows vs. Wild Rose. Sell the roses with Overcharge on your merchant.
|Monster Food (6%)||Rotten Fish (0.35%)||Witherless Rose (0.5%)||Shadow Arrow (30%)||Big Ribbon (0.02%)|
|Wild Rose Card (0.01%)||Nutshell (1.2%)||Cyfar (53.35%)|
Mavka drops Witherless Rose at 3% rate on a 1x server (only if your server has Moscovia Dungeon). Use Fire arrows vs. Mavka. Sell the roses with Overcharge on your merchant.
|Blue Herb (30%)||Singing Flower (3%)||Hinalle (1%)||Singing Plant (3%)||Illusion Flower (0.5%)|
|Crystal Mirror (15%)||Witherless Rose (3%)||Principles of Magic  (0.05%)|
3) Juperos Drops
Venatu drop: (based on a 1x server rate)
|Elunium (0.1%)||Steel (3%)||Armor Charm (0.1%)||Venatu Card (0.01%)||Fragment (3%)|
|Rusty Screw (20%)||Crest Piece (4%)||Professional Cooking Kit (1%)|
Use Overcharge and sell all drops. Venatu cards are practically worthless, so you might as well sell those. The most efficient way to hunt them is to use an Assassin with Grimtooth. Gather a mob and then hide and Grimtooth away, make sure to have high flee and high strength.
4) Royal Jellies
Royal Jelly drops at a high rate. You can use Steal to increase the drop rates of the 100% drops.
Gonryun Dungeon is a great place to hunt Royal Jelly and the other drops there are worth good money also.
Enchanted Peach Trees drop: (based on a 1x server rate)
|Royal Jelly (10%)||Banana Juice (1%)||Old Blue Box (0.05%)||Dead Branch (4%)||Enchanted Peach Tree Card (0.01%)|
|Solid Peach (43.65%)|
Bloody Butterflies drop: (based on a 1x server rate)
|Butterfly Wing (12%)||Powder of Butterfly (55%)||Waghnak  (0.03%)||Lariat Whip (0.01%)||Bloody Butterfly Card (0.01%)|
|Hard Feeler (46.08%)||Giant Butterfly Wing (25%)|
To leech others, you will need to make a Stargladiator devoted to leeching characters at Thors. Stargladiators are great for PvM. See the Cuddly Stargladiator Guide to Thors (once it has been published) for the build, gear, and mechanics of leeching. Use your hunting character to get the appropriate gear, and then level your Stargladiator with the Leveling Guide (treat a Starglad like a Merchant or Swordsman for leveling purposes).
Kasa drop: (based on a 1x server rate)
|Flame Heart (0.3%)||Staff of Piercing (0.1%)||Burning Bow  (0.1%)||Lucius’s Fierce Armor of Volcano (0.1%)||Ring of Minor Spirits (0.01%)|
|Kasa Card (0.01%)||Burning Heart (30%)|
