Mega Thread for New Players

Weekly maintenance is on Wednesday in the mornings for NA roughly 3am to 8am Afternoon for EU 8:00UTC - 13:00UTC
Market prices fluctuate with updates and use.
Example Special Silk/tomato/olive all dropped from 150-180k to 20k=50k
New players should not go beyond +1 for jewelery or silver embroidered gear.
First priority should be going upto your cap for weapons and armors. +7 Weapons +5 Armors
Combat Crystals go great with your helms early on an extra 6% adds up.
Sute Tea "Life Exp" Is for any gathering/crafting/fishing/processing exp gain

Creating as many characters as you can benefits you.
First thing I did was make 4 characters. Abuse the early on easy contribution points.
You can get about 80 CP in a day.
Manage your main and alternates to have different skills. "1 Cook, 1 Trainer ect." Of course eventually you'll out grow this.
Spending energy to roll for artisan/professional workers is fine. Got 2 in heidel with about 240 energy. Costs 80k per worker purchase. It is RNG.
Buying Yuria "Class" weapon is your go to early game weapon for most grind areas and pvp, Purchasable in calpheon weaponsmith. Requires Amity/ Conversation Minigame.
You can pick farm spots that are human based mobs for increased damage.
Lvl 45 for open PVP Doesn't require quest. Non flagged players give the killer negative karma
You also benefit from the +1 Luck Crystal's which can be transferred to your Main character.
 +5 Luck in early game helps a lot with getting various items Flax thread/Soft hide from tanning a wolf hide. 2 Piece set bonuses- 2 sets
 Crystals are sorted by color for gear slot. Exception being dim crystals/luck crystal read info hovering.
 Energy use is vital. 3 Minutes on an active character gives 1 energy.
 Half for offline/Alts.
 Regular Furniture Bed use doubles energy gain, Not while offline.
 Cash shop bed gives 3 every 3 minutes.
 Specialty Furniture has durability "50 Uses left" but gives you buffs. Maybe useful for your pvping.

Nodes/Contribution Points
Node investment increases Quantity of drops. There is 0 reason you shouldn't invest in nodes.
Create a gameplan for your main city.
Example shipyards Epheria/Ilya/Altinova for Fishing boat.
Altinova has cheapest Level 3 Wagon production as far as Contribution points. Also allows rank 5 armor "Grunil set" production same house after you're done with wagon.
Hiedel/Calpheon for your Horsegear Best choice probably.
+9 Fail stacks is a safe number for enhancing Silver embroidered gear to +1
I've gotten +1 at lower, But I've also lost millions trying to repeat it. LOLOL
Quest line costumes do give you an interesting wont be attacked by certain mobs while crouched/"fishing/gathering"
Silver Costumes. Fishing and gathering +1 suits do NOT give you and extra level of fishing/gathering
+2's do then +5's for +3 fishing level. "unsure about gathering"
+1 Silver Embroidered Gathering gives you 10% EXP and +1 Gathering speed.
Definitely Recommend the +1 Craftsman "+2 Processing" and +1 Trainer "10% Horse Exp". Absolutely.
+0 Fish level +1, movespeed +1, DP 16
+1 10% XP, Fish level +1, movespeed +1, DP 18
+2 15% XP, Fish level +2, movespeed +2, DP 20
+3 20% XP, Fish level +2, movespeed +2,  DP 23
+4 25% XP, Fish level +2, movespeed +3, DP 26
+5 35% XP, Fish level +3, movespeed +4, DP 29
Small Fences can be gotten from the same NPC over and over. You do not need to go to different NPC's
Most efficient fences are 3CP for 4 slots. Max of 10 fences.
Crops do NOT need to be maintained/watered/fertilized if you dont mind losing yield.
Profitable crops are usually the single slots for More breeding/yield RNG
Hiedel has 4 Crop workbenches. What I use, still get the 20% distance going to Altinova.

Farming your own Beer only takes a small farm. 3 contribution points!
Special Grain items only require 1 for the crafting.
1 Special Grain 'Wheat' 'Barley' 'Corn' 'Potato'   Wheat/Potato are the cheapest seeds.
6 Mineral/1 sugar/2 Leavening agent/1 Special Grain.
Cool draft beer is an RNG of regular beer.
Promotions are RNG spam away.
Worker special skills- Such as Fish crate production, Luck increase by level, Crop production skill are RNG and do not have to be any specific grade/class
Lodgings not in major cities are usually closer to good mines/excavation sites. "Horsetail ranch"
There is a delay from notification to market.
You can snipe items from the bots :D
Take advantage of the market for extra money
You see an item that has 0 quantity? Maybe you should farm/process it.
Black stone powder easily obtained from grinding Skill crystals or grind spots for leveling and grinding those.
Example- Chimera
Horses gain experience based on distance traveled get yourself some light horseshoes!

Horse Training should be done a non 45 character in my opinion so you don't get sniped while autolooping.
Want to level 4 horses at once? Craft a Merchant Wagon, Way cheaper than noble, and the accessories as well.
T2 Horses have a distinctive Redish color, May be near impossible to identify if you're colorblind.
There are no T3+ horses yet. They will be identifiable by their braided tails.
Horse shoe enhance to +2 is easy enough with 0-3 failstacks
Horse Breeding I've constitantly gotten t4 Male's/3Fe/male's from T2 lvl 12's   3T4 Males
Lvl 30 T2's are the way to go though.
Horse taming do not press space bar until horse is on hind legs.
My method is 1 rope 2 sugars. Make sure you delay trying to get ride it or it will fail.
Horses can be ran behind your mount so long as you successfully captured it. Get on get off ride away as far as you want to your stable thats open. Pker's and creatures can kill it...
Building Stamina DOESN'T require you to actually be running. I've walked and gotten upgraded.
Amity/Conversation minigame is between account and not individual characters
There is an Amity Booster potion.... WISH I KNEW THAT! It's only 8minutes 30% increase.
Grunils set is purchasable in Altinova armorsmith. Requires amity/Conversation minigame.
Fishers. You have 0 Reason to not craft a Balenos or Epherian Rod. They have no level cap and can be repaired from any blacksmith.
Unless you are trying to upgrade it. the 5% gain of afk fishing time at +5...not really worth it.
Epherian is worth upgrading because of the increased durability meaning longer afk fishing.
I don't think the +1 Fishing speed on thick rod is worth the slots or regular production.
Steel Rod gives you the +2 speed at Skilled 5. So afk away.
Then get your nice rods at Professional/Artisan
Cash shop fish suit increases fishing level. Cap at +5 Fishing level.
Easy way to farm silver keys is afk fishing.
Clicking the throw away useless will toss white fish be warned if you're just starting out.
Special Gear.
 Blue/Yellow  "Yuria Amulet of Destruction"
Armor and Weapon Enhancement Houses do not require you to have a non upgraded gear.
It can be +15 and you're good to go to try and upgrade to blue/yellow
Enhancement failures remove 5 durability from your items.
So in order to restore it you need to sacrifice same item. Yuria +15  -50 durability= sacrifice yuria weapons to restore the durability. Can be extremely pricey if you've a Liverto worth 9million a piece ><

Oxen are cows. Which give tough hide.
Horse gear tool tip calls a combat stirrup a saddle.  ><
Want Lucky Tools use a lucky worker maybe you'll get lucky
