good tips guys, i'm not at home and i am on a laptop, so it's hard to update this thread, but when i return home i will edit my original post to incorporate your ideas!! keep them coming. here's one from me, i posted this on OpenKoreSP but it's good so ill post it here too
hey guys! i'm here to share with you some of (in my opinion) the BEST ways to make zeny on low/med rate servers. it's reliant on some luck but when you finally get some cards, you will be rich!! that's why in my opinion it's worth it since the areas you will bot don't require much maintenance at all - the monsters are very easy to kill and don't even fight back for the most part.
there are a couple requirements, though:
* server must have a lot of players (the server i do this on has around ~600 online usually)
* low or medium rate servers are the best for this tactic because you rely on the rarity of the items you are selling
* you need to be patient !! don't be discouraged and just wait, when you get a little lucky you will be rich
now here are the areas you want to be botting. you don't need very high level characters, i suggest THIEF CLASS since you won't be getting attacked and you won't need to heal up for anything.
1) moc_fild07 -- 1 north of Morroc
you will be killing the DROPS and the PECO PECO EGGS. do not pick up anything except their cards, Guard s and if you want, Drop's Orange Juice, for a little bit more profit. the real money maker is Peco Peco Egg cards which can sell in the millions, and drops can sell for a lot as well.
to make use of time do not kill the Picky's or Super Picky's. if you are botting here just after your first job change, you will eventually be strong enough to kill PPE's in one hit. with a little luck and maybe a lot of time you will be RICH. sell the cards with a Merchant character to other players and soon you'll be a millionaire. not a lot of people come here on my server and there's a lot of players online, so hopefully it's the same on your server.
2) gef_fild04 -- 1 north of Geffen
kill the RODA FROGS and PUPAS on this map. take the guard s and monster's cards, and nothing else. ignore all monsters except RODA FROGs and PUPAS to maximize your time/profit. this area isn't as good as Peco Peco Egg Land but it's still not bad at all. pupa and roda frog cards sell fast and easily, so you could even sell at a lower price to get them off your hands fast and get back to botting.
again i recommend thief class because you want to be fast here. you don't need to heal much (soon you will be able to take roda frogs flawlessly though maybe not in the beginning) and fast attack speed= faster killing.
have fun guys!!
