Try to kill mobs of Hich Orc/Pasana with Zeny Knife. And take their loot, sure.

Anywhere. Just make sure you pick up every single item you come across... I find that people complain that they're so poor but when I watch them hunt they leave loot lying around everywhere. If you're of lower level you can try orc dungeon 2... and mob. But basically any high-end dungeon gives a lot of money...

The majority of the zeny in this game comes from overcharging loot. Sadly the majority of the players I see don't even bother picking up regular loot to sell to the npc. They think only the rares and the cards are worth their time.

... which is crazy, because every single zeny you see in the game has come from either the novice training grounds, or loot. Yes, that 20 million zeny weapon someone has is basically bought off jellopies and fluff...

OD2 with a greed BS ;p

Hill Winds is good too, especially if you're a job that can one or two shot them. Hang around there for a few hours each day and you can easily make several hundred thousand just from OCing the loot.

That's pretty stupid indeed. If a monster's 55% drop rate loot(let's say, Brigan from a Raydric) sells for 450z, and the card is worth 5m, you will get 5500 Brigans before the card(just in theory, but still). That means the Brigans are worth half of the card's value, which isn't all that bad. The Eluniums the Raydrics drop are already worth a lot more than the card according to the statistics.

Very true. The thing is, people enjoy getting bulk sums of money at a time, and never think that the loots will accumulate that much. Even relaxing hunting for me will churn out several dozen thousands of zeny after a few hours..

Make a rogue, and go hill winds. feathers and claws cost alot, its like 700 per loot, as good as 1k each. or one shot then easily with something else.

leaf cats' leaves also has good value, but only 300 each, but both leaves drop almost every time.

If you have really strong ones ,try niff, characters who kills fast without potting too much can earn the pots back and more.

IP/OI leveling on Sleepers and harvesting Great Natures is somewhat laborious (weighs alot), but degrading (more effort) them GN's to Green Lives would profit you more definitely more,since GN's drop really often. a quest required for the down grading, located in umbala.

Gather witches starsand and sell them to chemists... or stems in mandragora map.

get retarded and Make a biochem only to get plant culti (and nothing more) to harvest karvo and sell em /heh

If you want to make zeny, its real easy. Basically, hunt any place with good OC'd loots, cards, or rare drops. The OC'd loots will be your consistant base salary. Try to stick to a place where you can hunt non-stop for hours. Hunt equips that are in demand, or cards, and vend them for market value.

Hunt consumable items that people use up, and vend those for market value. Never undercut to sell your items faster, as this will ultimately lower the price of the item, lowering your profit margin over time. Take some time to shop around town, and find out what the market is lacking. If there are 50 shops all selling blue herbs, it might not be a good time to hunt blue herbs.

Greed orc dungeon with a blacksmith, or if you have one, a mastersmith. The loots you OC will bring in constant zeny, that will never be affected by the current condition of the market. This is a nice alternative for those that are only interested in making zeny. However, hunting items also yeilds exp, while greeding does not. If you plan to hunt higher lvl dungeons, you might as well gain exp as you gain zeny.

Learn what sells and what does not. Of coarse almost anything will sell at the right price. If something is vending for weeks upon weeks, try vending something else. Diversity is the spice of life.

With the zeny you make, you can choose to invest it in hopes to make it grow. Buy items from desperate merchants looking for a quick buck, and resell. This is a pure judgement call, being that not all items will appreciate in value, some will depreciate. Buy at your own risk. Just because a particular item has been vending at a certain price, doesn't mean that it is the actual value. Actual value is determined by the demand for an item, and its rarity.

Greed in od2 till you have 4-5mil zeny, then go gamble in hugel for the slotted ele armor. Sell it afterwards.

It really all depends on what classes/characters you have to be able to hunt with. If you have a rogue, hunting immortal hearts is pretty good money, or even bathories for the starsands and fabrics (with any class).

Goats is also pretty good, since they drop green herbs,yellow herbs, empty bottles, good oc loot (like 400-500z each), and blue herbs, on top of giving decent exp. You'd need a monk though, or for best/maximum profit, an SD sinx that can one shot them (with endow).

Prison1 is a great place to solo for a wizard, to gain zeny.

Party wise, castle2 and magma1 are great for zeny for a wiz party.

Consider CT4 as well.
