Default Yet another money thread(bit different from others)

Hey guys, I need now your help really. I've been doing speedclears since 5 years(UW, FoW, SoO, kath, bog etc.)a lot. Done like 300+ SoOsc runs. My problem is that I still can't gain money. Lot of people gets BDS on 10-20 runs, one got q9 on 43rd... I saw like 7-8 drop neither for me. Same is with Treasures, I get a ruby/sapph like every 6 runs, but see a lot drop. Same goes with FoW/UW, no eblade, no obby edge, no etc. Always the same crappy drops. Farming ectos, I get 1 ecto in every 2 farms. Is it really my bad luck, or what? How the hell can I make money then? Sorry for crying so much, but really embarassed now. Thanks in advance for responses!

Well you shouldn't rely on purely unpredictable things to get money. The problem with speed clears is that you don't pick up regular drops on the way. Drops that salvage into things that get you money. You need to also engage in a dependable source of regular income too. Basic things like material trading, gifts of the traveller (sell the presents), or zaishen keys via PvP quest days are examples of easy every day ways to earn money.

Besides, you probably think you don't have money but you've probably got more than 80% of the playerbase.

As for the Underworld; That's pretty much what it's like with me. I have a feeling anti-farm code is still around, seems the first time I do UW in ages solo I get 3 - 4 ectos. But in subsequent runs straight after I'm lucky if I get 1.

Yep, I've been thinking of trying to heroway, or duo farm it, seems like good money. I'll just have to find a monk.

Yep, I've been thinking of doing zaishen stuff, and maybe Nick gifts too, we'll see how I get on with them. UW farm: yep, same thinking as me with the anti-farm, not sure what's right.
