Making the most of the VIP inventory without having premium service
Also known as the guide to being an efficient cheap bastard.
Let's say you bought VIP or Premium service and its about to expire, but you don't want to spend money on more service because let's face it times are tough. Does this mean that your VIP inventory tab just has to become dead weight until you decide to give Nexon more money? Actually the answer to that is no. The VIP tab can still be useful after you lose service because you can still use items in it.
Yes the items in your VIP tab are not locked away forever, at least some of them are not. As it turns out, skills that require items don't care where those items are located or if those items are locked, this includes hidden skills as well. What does this mean for you? Well it means that you can use holy water, Phoenix feathers, bandages and sketch paper even when they are locked in the VIP tab. And that's just what I was able to test. There is a good chance that you can use alchemy crystals and paper airplanes from the locked VIP tab as well.
If you right click on holy water in your VIP tab and use it, you can bless your items. So fill up your VIP tab before it expires.
