    You might can get 45k or so for the two practice items. Not sure on the blessed clothing. One thing you might consider is researching/joining a good guild. Many times, they can hook you up with some starter weapons/armor and give you some good training advice.

    Welcome back!

    Hiya

    I run a guild for new and returning players, and we can certainly help you out with armour and pretty much everything else you need to get started. We have everyone from new players to vets and participate in a wide variety of activities through the game. Oh, and they're all a bit insane, but very nice with it :) If you'd like to, give me a shout here or via PM or find someone in game with a Saor guild tag and ask for me.

    Thanks for the welcome guys,

    I am still training this char but he should be ready magery wise fairly soon. Still so much i dont know about!Looking forward to learning!

    I appreciate the offer of guilds and help with items, im not really big on "Charity" hece why i wanted to sell some of those items and get a starting base to work on...having said that, i had a look around Luna today...since when do items go for 10+ mils?

    I thought i would be set for life making a mil or 2!

    Nah, we don't do charity. We help you, then when you're set up, you can help out some way - pick a new player to help, put some stuff in the resource boxes, whatever; we all help each other and everyone else out and it all balances out somewhere or other :)

    Prices have become inflated since you left. Don't worry, though - although things cost more nowadays, money is also easier to come by. You'll be making millions in no time (first mil is the hardest).

    I will definatly have a think about it.

    Ok, how do you go about making this gold?!? Im guessing its something from one of the new dungeons?

    Well, minor artifacts are in higher demand than ever, as many can be turned into relic fragments. Previously, the "talon bite" minor artifact was worthless - perhaps valued at 10k. If you can get an imbuer to turn it into a relic fragment for use (a painless process, that most any imbuer would do for free), you can sell the fragment for between 150-180k on Europa.

    Many of the new ingredients sell for around 30k each, as well.

    What template are you using? This would help determine what monsters you're best suited to kill.

    At the moment im using a wrestle/scribe/mage

    Was a good fun template when i last played. Although i can see scribe using a lot of gold to raise.

    Were do these artifacts come from??

    Also i have been checking out these Champion spawns and just got a Scroll of Transcendence for 1.0 item identification, is this worth much?

    The scrolls of transcendence are worth reasonable gold, but only if it's one of the sought after skills, as in, one that is a bugger to raise, like magery, taming, poisoning, discordance. I'm afraid your item ID isn't so popular :( However, doing the lower level spawns is good for raising your skills and the best way to drop scrolls, so keep going with those. Another good way to raise gold is to hunt despise for the lizzies, since you get spined leather from those, or destard for drakes (horned+scales) or dragons (barbed+scales). Watch out for those greaters tho! You can make nice gold selling bulk leather on a vendor. If you'd like a free spot in our shop, shout. Any of the imbuing ingredients are also good earners, you can get something from most monsters in the SA expansion areas. Feathers are also a good seller, and a good place to hunt those is the harpy cave in ilshenar, spirituality gate, or you can stop off and pick up bone from the dark wisps on the way. Basically, you can sell anything that's a pain in the bum for other players to gather.

    Artifacts are paragon drops, mostly. The more you kill, the more likely you are to get one.

    Oh, for your scribe, as soon as you can, make spellbooks; it's a little lighter on the gold and you can donate them to the library as you go :)

    Cool, thanks for the info that should help a hell of alot!

    I would also like to thank whoever the 4 blues at despise where recently. Never before seen and we finished the spawn and i got a 110 wrestle scroll for it!!!As well as alot of gold when it finished, i think that may be my way of making gold :)

    Who, out of interest are GOD Guild??? They didnt like me picking up gold from despise when they dinished it!

    When I try to play around on a new shard, I usually start with a scribe to get some starting money ....
    The cheapest route would be:
    - start with 49 inscription
    - get the new haven skill quest (you have to go to 50 inscription for that one and gets rewarded with an undead slayer spellbook)
    - pick out a mage shop of your wish
    - start to buy up reags + scrolls for a single scroll (at 49 start with a 4'th circle scroll, you should be able to buy one from the npcs somewhere)
    - dont move on to circle 5 until you have around 60% success on those
    Gains might be little slow that way, but you will definately have enough gold to buy a full spellbook from another player.
    - take a break/choose another mage shop and buy up reagents + scrolls for a circle 5 scroll of your desires
    With around 60% success on a scroll type, your always earning money when you sell your scrolls back to the npcs. During inscription your going to train int, medi and focus for free. While your waiting for the npcs to restock you can train eval on them. (Simply use eval and target an npc.)
    This way you will have very soon enough gold to buy a simple lrc-suit that will allow you easy training of magery/eval.

    Thank you all for your offers of help.

    The mere offers have made my decision to stay on this shard alot easier! I am starting to amass a little gold now and am wondering...this imbuing ive read about, is anyone yet a master of it and if so, how much would a simple set of jewelry cost?
