    Never! But yeah, thick threads were MUCH more of a pain to get. I could only hold 5 wool pouches, and I normally only got the finest/fine fabrics every 2-3 trips. Then, those sheep had to run out of wool as well, whereas spiders never run out of cobwebs. Plus, I can go afk easily and do other stuff while I wait for the cobwebs to stack up like crazy. I stand by my opinion that rA>r8 simply because of the effort you have too do to get all the thick threads >_>.


    You fools would dare to challenge the king of light and darkness? So you choose to do and so you shall feel my wrath!

    Off-Topic: This thread make me miss Advance Play... High Speed Gathering Potion but anyway...

    The skill Refine also prove that Mabinogi calculation is wack. Ex: 20x@40% and no failure. Yeah, you get the point. :D

    Refine got easier, simply because the mat price drop drastically compare to pre-G12

    back then, frags were around 1k copper, 3k~4k iron, 6k~8k sliver, 4k~5k gold and mythril...

    now

    its like 800g copper, 1k~2k iron, 2k~3k silver, 1k gold and mythril

    if ur funded (with G13 and their money making drops) most new players will find refine A LOT easier compare to what other experience player had to suffer through.

    Nobody sells [low-level] ores.

    I walk through Mari channel 4 in Dunbarton, all I see are Gold ores and Diamonds.

    Like I need that ****

    That's not true. What's happening is that if you ever walk through Dunbarton and see nothing but the higher-up ores, someone else who has been training blacksmithing or refining has probably scooped up everything available. Just means you should come back later.

    Yeah, they usually restock pretty fast. Refining was...well, a bit of a money-eater for me since I bought my ores, but otherwise it was alright.

    I'm so glad I gave up range. Means I don't have to rank weaving anymore. I have 270 base dex too, so I don't need weaving for balance. On the other hand...-is currently ranking carpentry- =_=

    This only in alexian sever .-.
    but u got a point. sometimes their're selling only gems, other time their're selling only ores. Then there those times there ur looking for that one type of frag but there isnt anyone selling >.>

    it just shows that people are actively buying, and ur just unlucky to show up right when everything was bought out

    Well, I suppose if you have a lot of money in the game, it's basically the luck that you can practically buy everything despite the people that are selling at ridiculous prices.

    Carpentry can easily be cut short by buying certain woods to make other woods.

    Weaving requires not much effort if you spam Walter's Part Time Jobs and buy certain materials that are really tedious to get, such as Wools.

    Refine is pretty easy if you either get Metallurgy to Rank 5 at the minumum to gather 3 ores at once, or buying all the ores from central Ch1 Dunbarton. Either way, you'd still be either buying certain things, or spending things to rank up skills.

    Things such as Tailoring and Blacksmithing are simply a quick buying of most of the materials, or rafting for the Iron ingots or so, and still using money to repair everything anyhow.

    Kind of shows how easy it is to rank things as long as you have the money to do so, which is sort of just like the buying Nx for advantages.

    Mabinogi seems a lot like real life if you look at it this way.
