Let's talk about money

I'd like to talk to everyone about their path to money. Grinding is great and fun, and the only avenue I currently use for monetary gain, besides fishing. I'd like to try something a bit more lucrative or focused. I'm curious what your route of financial freedom is! What do you personally do to make silver, and what is your income like?

Doing alchemy mostly for money, making 10-30M a day depending on how much I can be bothered.

My best day has been 150M ish but that was a bit of a grind.

 

I also have workers on reform stone, grunil, timber boxes and clothes whenever I get round to processing the materials.

My questions for you then...how are you trading your fish? Node connected/All the way across the map? Do you get fish worth more than 30k? What is your fishing level at? :)

Some of the yellow fish are over 30k but I've heard of fish selling for way more. I don't really remember what my fishing level was back then since I just came back but fishing was my most favorite thing to do. 

But yes I pretty much got nodes to all the important places to sell fish and where I fished.

trolling? I'm hoping for some advice/guidance here, as I'd like to eventually have decent gear. Would you like to reveal anything on this secret?

Not trolling but I don't really want anyone else to know the secret to finding the right spot.  I easily make a minimum of 10M per day from just AFK fishing while I sleep.  Seriously though, I make most of my money from grinding mobs and exchanging certain item drops.  You can easily make 6M+ per hour just grinding giants or manshas and get lots of boss scrolls, black stones, and gear drops.

 

EDIT:  I have only been playing for like 2 weeks now and I have been able to buy 3 value packs, and 3 premium outfit+weapon sets.  I could buy any gear I want but I pride myself on getting my gear as drops.

Wait... are you serious?   I wasn't even gonna comment on this thread b/c my casual Lifeskilling feels pretty slow to me honestly ... but atleast I had no issues at all buying my Awakening already @ TRI for 300mil last week. I'd echo what remilafo said infact, all my gear is TRI + 4/5 Boss Pieces even tho I don't even use it.  How do you only have 30mil in excess capital if you grind mobs?   ...Sh** I make more than that off of HORSES and that's like the least profitable lifeskill.  

I guess you're right then, you really could use *some kind* of income subsidizing right now... GL,  Hope you find something that fits you well

Fishing gets me about 7-8m per hour if active fishing. Usually AFK fishing overnight and while at work will get me about 8-10m silver not including relics. Normally about 10-15 relics a day from afk fishing. So maybe 15-20m afk profit per day and 15-30m active profit per day. Total 30-50m per day just fishing and only active for a couple hours. Easiest profession for lazy ppl. Master 16 fishing with 188 inv slots and a +10 balenos rod for AFK.

 

EDIT: About 1.2b silver sitting in heidel and 2.5b assets in heidel. Not the most but enough to get by.

Alchemy and Sun flower crates along with a workshop factory for something that's in demand right now.

Imperial alchemy nets me 10 mill

Regular alchemy 35 mill

Sunflower crates 15 mill

Work shop stuff 12 mill.

Net worth fluctuates around 1-2 Bill.

Today 3 mill silver but I bought a tri Osaka and dandi so that's cool

A day? If so you have to be almost always at you PC to restart tasks + you have to buy ingridients, i mean workers cant gather traces and so on so fast or are my thoughts false? you must have a ton of cp to do all that.

a day. Making the imperial stuff is easy. Part of the mats I already grow. The other iI gather on the weekends and it's usually enough to last the week.

As for selling, i sell at the not crowded imperial vendors, our guild has a active informing system to let each other know when the timer resets.

 mostly giant or Human workers.

Yes I do supplement often from the AH. 250CP

Fishing is the best of the best, hands down.

 Anything else is just a waste of time. I realize that's sad, but it is very true.

How do you guys that say you fish make so much money? I'm always one of the top fishers and I never see any of you on the boards and I'm Master 5 ATM (can check on Val1 right now). Yeah I get lucky and net around 12 Mil a night AFK fishing but I never see 8-10 million Active Fishing that EXCLUDE Relics... I just don't see how and I have some pretty good spots to fish with +5 Fishing lvl and rank 10 nodes. Hell maybe you all can share your secrets with me too then... =\
