I really am not funded in any way as of right now (like 5 mil) cuz I just came back. But a friend gifted me a personal shop which will help me merch a ton. Now the question I'm asking is what is the best thing to merch/anything that I can farm and sell/where to start with such low funding.

Thanks in advance

That's ridiculously slow. If you count your earnings I expect you'll find your net gain is like, 1 M/hour.[/quote]
The earnings are completely dependent on your luck. If you feel lucky, you can try and maybe get some 9%/12% stat half earrings. On the other hand, you can also spend hours and tons of materials and get maybe a few 3%s...

Do evolution lab and use black crystal cores, they sell rather well.

Nope, they drop from evo monsters just like any other core. Hilla just drops Necro weapons directly after killing her.[/quote]

Ah, thanks for the clarification. What's the drop rate of the necro cores though? Do they drop often?

To be honest, I'm not sure why people always recommend evo system, the meso rate is actually terrible...
The easiest way for unfunded/new players to get started is to start farming gollux/commerci, which has a much better rate compared to evo system.
Selling HS/Kanna service is also a good option if you don't mind swallowing your pride.

But how can an unfunded person do Gollux? I mean, they could probably solo easy Gollux, but it would take a long time before they have enough coins to purchase a Gollux equip from the shop.

Even if you are doing easy mode, its still more efficient than farming evo for superior crystals.

@duriel123: But it would probably take weeks, or even months to get enough coins. Correct me if I'm wrong because I've never done Gollux before

The cores for lvl 110 drop in Evo lab is 1mil, so I'm not sure that's gonna be a huge profit? Plus extracting services...

If you do 3 runs per day and kill easy mode, thats 11 coins per day. A reinforced ring costs 90 coins, so thats about 8 days of farming (you get some coins from the initial prequests). A reinforced ring sells for ~2b, so thats 2b in 8 days with about 10-15min of effort per day. A reinforced earring costs 110 coins and sells for 1.5-2b. Superior accessories are a little less efficcient, but still pretty good netherless.

If you want to go hardcore, you can make multiple accounts and farm gollux multiple times everyday. Obviously this is a lot more time consuming considering you have to do the prequests for every char (which takes about 2 hours per char if you know what you are doing), but the profit is far greater. This was basically how I scrapped together my starting funds, I'm sure there are more elegant and efficient methods like merching, but I am talentless when it comes to making money and can only do monotonous labor like farming gollux.

So yea, if you are willing to put time into farming evo, you might as well farm gollux/commerci instead because it is far superior in terms of efficiency.
