    Default HOw do I make money?

    SO yeah I'm Lvl 41 now, and my money is only depleting as I level up. I thought the higher level quests would = more money. And higher level mobs would = better drops. But that is hardly the case.. some quests don't even give ely rewards now. And alot of them only give 1K/10K ely. SO what the heck do I do? I was richer at LVl 25 than I am at Lvl 41. I've only got 55 K left WTF? I'm willing to farm for a while, but I just gotta know were to farm. Can anyone help me?

    You must be doing something wrong. In OBT when I had been level 43, I had over 300k from just quests. Mind you, whenever each new armor set came out, I would waste AT LEAST 100k on new armors, weapons and supplies.

    You must have been re-skilling or something. It's hard to bounce back after a re-skill.

    Oh yeah, I did re-skill once. but it was only 100K and I had 450 K at the time. Maby I'm spending to much on pots or something.. I would sell my drops on shop mode, but then that would leave me with no time to actually play. I cant leave it on over night, because it waists to much electricity. I really wish there was an auction house. anyways..do you normally solo? Or do yo uparty when you quest/Lvl up? I'm in a party every time I level so I'm not sure if thats got something to do with it.

    Are you keeping money you don't need at the time in the bank? How often do you die?

    IIRC, dieing is -10% Ely, so it's always a good idea to keep a bunch in the bank.

    Like from a bunch of 23-24 quests I made 80k, so I put 50k in the bank. That sorta stuff.

    Are you buying Iron Wills like crazy? Thats another giant money sink :P

    Whenever I get like, 3k+ ely on me I'll always make a trip to the bank.
    I'm a cheapskate like that. And yet I'm still broke.

    So yeah, just chuck all of your ely into the bank.
    To prevent you from losing "too much" ely when you die.

    Didnt showoff. My friend has 6 mil+ last time I checked. What I meant to say was: If you just play the game and do your quests, you end up just fine. Thats what I did. If you really do want to make MORE money for whatever reason, just grind on mobs your lvl that can drop ums. Now that wasnt to hard to understand, or was it?
