Top 5 Ways to Make Money

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 [2] (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.

Hunt Enchanted Peach Trees, and Bloody Butterflies and then sell all the drops with overcharge on your merchant.

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 [4] (0.03%) Lariat Whip (0.01%) Bloody Butterfly Card (0.01%)
Hard Feeler (46.08%) Giant Butterfly Wing (25%)

5) Leeching

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 [1] (0.1%) Lucius’s Fierce Armor of Volcano (0.1%) Ring of Minor Spirits (0.01%)
Kasa Card (0.01%) Burning Heart (30%)

Burning Hair (25%)

  1. u 4got another way geffenia with the buff slave u can use ur overcharge slave if its a whitesmith to kill incubus and succubus for diamond, gold, and silver rings. the buff slave can asperio the whitesmith and the whitesmith can 2 hit them with CT if they have a ice pick

  2. I left out Geffenia because servers without a Dungeon Warper would have a tough time getting there.

    I do agree though. Geffenia is another great way to rake in the dough. I know some SinX and Champs that hunt there to make money also. (The Champs hunt Abysmal Knights, sell all drops and save the cards.) Hunting with a champ only works if you have dungeon warper and healer though.

  3. just go to abbey and hunt for lbw, wool, or tidal while leveling a whitesmith or hwiz then make a +7 or +9 for lbw. sell it. done.

  4. Its better for me for hunting Gokurin then sell overcharge to npc…

  5. Hu !
    Mimic card is rentable. It can permit you to drop an Old Blue Bow which sell for 5k (with each kill it give a chance)
    Then you’re going to the seals, and do a mobtrain. AoE, and autoloot, that’s a perfect way of earning.

  6. i think better if u go and hunt for the buster and sell it also can …

  7. The way that i use is a sniper (with a bow with 2kaho, card,2 mimic card in gloves, ulles cap with mist case card)
    -I go hunting in gongrun donjon (enchanted peach).
    -I was able to drop some old blue boxes, gift boxes and royal jelly.
    -In a server 10/10/10 I was able to make 1M in less than 15 min without selling old blue boxes and gift boxes.
    -the boxes can be sold at higher prices by setting a shop
    -I usually open them, gold sells good and maby one day you’ll get an emperium anvil and thats cost a lot !!!!

  8. no one mention about biolab 2, huh?

  9. You forgot juperos as well. The crest pieces that venatu drops are worth 2.5k a pop.

    autoloot all items
    save OBB, OPB, OCA (sell to other player or use it yourself)
    sell the rest to NPC
    i can make 1 million in less than 30 minutes without overcharge

    go to hidden temple 3
    hunt bapho Jr.
    sell yggdrasil berry to other player
    sell the rest to NPC

  16. you also forgot to mention Stone of Sage. @alootid 12040 It might not be on every server. BUT if you go to @warp tha_t08 . Every monster there drops it. And there worth 50,000 each. MUCH easier to get then looking for certain monsters to drop lesser selling loot elsewhere.

  17. what about noggroad lvl 2 with party those things are great to sell

  18. why not just farm treasure box at abyss_03?
    its worth 150k!!

  19. For low and mid rate
    Yao jun => munak doll 4500
    Miyabi doll => star crumbs 2500
    Gud luck guys ;)

  20. the best hunting spot is in Gonryun hunt royal jellies . because the server that i play was tooooooo haaaaaaarrrdd ..

  21. Just go gl_prison and loot everything.
    Injustice drops red candle worth 10k

    Cyfar sell to NPC or Catalyst for crafting
    Steel used also in crafting materials (Forging)
    Brigan Sell to NPC

  24. Get an undead armor, (evil druid card)
    Get a zenny knife
    Go find Dracula mvp, and use magnum break against his mob of bats, works especially well with must case carded hat and mimic card accessory.
