1. Introduction
Hello, I've hit a reasonable amount of money on Dragon's Nest and I'm hoping to help others who are questioning "how to make more money on Dragon's Nest" or "what is the easiest way to make money on Dragon's Nest". I've hit over 1k gold within a week and a half on Dragon's nest. I find that a great milestone. Although others do surpass my wealth on the server, my knowledge and experience is still high enough to help others out. 


2. Jewel Hunting
We all know what Crafting Jewels are, don't we? You should by now. All dungeons that are level 16+ drop Rough Agates and not those crumby Agate Fragments. You can easily farm these Rough Agates in dungeons such as Dark Tower Magic Institute or Sanctuary Core, where a lot of mobs spawn. The two dungeons listed above are where I feel are the strongest places to farm Rough Agates.

Rough Agate farming I find is the most consistent way to make money. You are almost guaranteed to make money, although it may not be at the fastest rate. You could average about 19G-20G an hour atleast. On average, I find that Rough Agates drop at a minimum of 2-3 per a dungeon run. Remember this is a minimum. At level 24, a masters run on Dark Tower Magic Institute should take you no less then 3 minutes with decent gear. Theoretically, if it takes you 3 minutes a dungeon, and you average 2-3 Rough Agatea at bare minimum then, you will average about 40-60 Rough Agates an hour. Depending on how much they sell for on your server determines on your Gold/Hour. On Springwood, as of August 20, a stack of Rough Agates can be sold in the market for 20g a stack.

Remember, This is the most consistent way to make money, but it may seem rather boring and repetitive. If you are trying to make money fast, perhaps consider the other options bellow. 


3. Rare Item Hunting
Along with Rough Agate farming, you can mix it along with Rare Item Hunting. Rare items such as level 24 set gear, rings and plates. This may not be as consistent as Rough Agate farming because after 5+ runs, you might not even run into an item that's worth something. Although I do not know which dungeon statistically will make the most money, you can grind on Abyss lower leveled dungeons, to find rare items such as a level 24 rare weapon or armor. You can also grind on Masters (Sanctuary Core, Prayer's Resting Place, etc.) because these dungeons do still drop 23+ gear on masters. Also you can consider getting rare sparks from pretty much every dungeon which sell quite nicely.

You could make a lot of money off this method by getting lucky and stumbling upon rare items. I've had some instances where I've found a nice level 20+ rare ring, with 25 MDMG on it that sold for over 20g.

Also you could hunt for boss drops such as a Poison Pills, Photos, Chain, etc. Almost every boss has a rare drop that is used for crafting which you can sell in the market for a good price. 


4. Merchanting
Merchanting occurs in almost every MMO. If you are not familiar with merchanting, here's a quick definition. Buy for less, sell for more. It's self explanatory. You simply hunt in the market/all chat to see if anyone is selling something discounted. There will always be that impatient seller who is willing to sell for less. Take advantage of that and buy from that seller, then sell that item at its original price. This method requires patience, if you do not have the patience to sell, then I recommend you try out the other methods.

Here let me give you an example:
There is a stack of Rough Agates in the market being sold for 18G. You know that a stack of Rough Agates can be sold for atleast 20G in the market. Quickly purchase that stack for 18G and resell it for 20G+ and you will make a 2G profit.

This method doesn't always have to be about Rough Agates, you can merchant things such as items, codes, plates, etc. Anything that seems oddly under priced, go ahead and buy it then sell it for its original or more price. 


5. Crafting and Selling
You can sell an item that has been well crafted and enhanced for great amount of gold. What this method involves you to do is pretty much enhance an item, such as a Goblin Long bow to +8 or higher (recommend for best results). Once you've enhanced it, you can use a rare crystal codes to unlock the item's ability. If you get a good ability, that's great! That just means you will make more money! If not, you can risk using reset sparks and trying to see if you can get better stats. Once you've enhanced and unlocked your item's ability, you can craft it into a different type of weapon (Preferably Windswept). Windswept/Intelligence is best for crafting in my opinion because for Mages and Clerics, you cannot go wrong on intelligence and Windswept is great on Warriors and Archers due to the reduction on crit resist.

Although this might seem like an easy method, you could potentially end up not being able to sell your item at your desired price and may lose more money. Think about it this way. What happens when you break your weapon? What happens to all your Rough Agates after failing to enhance 5 times in a row? What if the item I don't have enough money to buy crafting items to get it to Windswept or Intelligence? All these factors may contribute to losing money after crafting items. Although this may seem like the "faster" way to make money, always remember that everything has their pros and cons. 


6. Gold Bunny Hunting
On Abyss difficulty, maybe you guys have ran into it before. The Gold Bunny. There is a very low probability that you will run into the Golden Bunny, but when you do, you could have a huge gain in gold. If people are unsure of what the Golden Bunny drops, there is a chance that the Gold Bunny will drop a "Highest Grade Plate" which can be sold up to 500G and up. Basically how to Gold Bunny hunt is you can go solo, or with a party. I personally like going with parties when I can, but some others like solo so if any other items drop, it's all theirs. Basically you have to grind on Abyss difficulty dungeons and hope for a Golden Bunny. 

Note: Make you you always have a key because if you don't then you are rather screwed when you see the Golden Bunny :\

Also note that this is more or less a gamble in my opinion. You might not even run into 1 Golden Bunny in 25 runs. That's how rare it is. Please consider this huge downfall when it comes to Golden Bunny hunting, as you might just be wasting your time if you are too impatient to grind for one.

Another tip is that it is preferred to run as a party, preferably as 4. Why you may ask? simply to maximize the number of bunnies you and your friends can get and also it makes Abyss runs much faster. think about it, you have 4 people, if you are lucky enough to stumble upon a bunny, its 4 people that get a gold bunny. Also with 4 people running through dungeons should be a breeze. 


7. Monopolization
I've not used this method, but theoretically it can work. Note, this method has the higher risk. You can either have a huge gain in money or a huge loss in it too. Not sure what I'm talking about when I say Monopolization? Here's a quick definition: the exclusive possession or control of the supply or trade in a commodity or service. Basically monopolizing or possessing one item in the market.

For example, you could monopolize anything in the market and sell it at the price that you want. Theoretically if you were to buy every Low Grade Crystal Spark (Rare) and sell them all for 30g instead of 20g. The only Crystal Sparks available are your crystal spark. When anyone sells a Crystal spark bellow your price you can buy it before anyone else can, then sell it for your own price.

I'm going to use a real life analogy to clear things up. Say someone bought out all the food markets in the states, and decided to sell everything for twice its value. No one could stop it since that "someone" owns all of it.

Theoretically you could monopolize a certain item in the market, make your own prices and sell for that price resulting in a huge gain of profit. There is a huge downfall though. What if your process of monopolization fails? What happens when I don't have enough gold to buy out the item? What happens if other players farm for the item you monopolized and sell it for cheaper? This is probably the best way to make money, yet it's probably the best way to lose it aswell.


8. Seal Stamps
Seal Stamps. You should've gotten them by level 24 as a gift box from the Cash Shop. You can also purchase them with your DNP/CC as well. How could you use Seal Stamps to make money? Simply by sealing items that are rare that are also are in high demand. I, myself use seal stamps to sell Revert Codes since they are unable to be traded and others are willing to buy them as well. There are other items such as rare plates that you can unbind and sell.

This method is mainly based on using "real life money" or the Cherry Credits that you got through events. By using these seal stamps you can make some extra gold.


9. Nesting
So recently with the newest update, the Minotaur Nest finally came out. This is also a great source of income due to the epic items you can get upon completing the nest. It is recommended to go as 4 as nesting is quite hard to solo. You can have a great source of income, or even get some nice items for yourself. I myself made a great ordeal of money just off a couple of nests. It requires a little luck, but more or less skill to complete the nest. Upon completing the dungeon, you may get a golden chest, where items can be sold for a lot of money. Some examples are a Minotaur horns, epic accessories, epic plates, and just epic things in general!
I find that this is another great method to make money just because of all the epic gear that you can acquire and sell. 


10. Tips and Tricks
Here are some tips and tricks that you can follow to help save or make some more money.
  1. You can create other character and send them items to be sold in the market once your listings have been all used up. Most people complain about how they can only sell 30 items a week. You can easily solve that problem by making several other character on your account making your 30 listings to 120 listings a week.
  2. Grind with a buddy. Although you guys might have to split the loot, theoretically you will be saving more money. You will be able to run through dungeons faster and you will waste less durability in dungeons.
  3. Farm things that are suspected to inflate. You can farm items in dungeons that are suspected to inflate in the future. ie. Crafting items once the Epic sets come out.
  4. Always keep an eye on the market. Things will inflate and deflate. The market can be very instable and prices can go up and down due to demands in the community. For example, when people were able to relist things in the market, the price of Rare Onyx Sparks went from 5g to about 3.5g. Keep an eye out for the market.
  5. Try to sell before Saturdays. The point above should explain why. Since everyone's listings get reset, after a week of grinding, a lot, and I mean a lot of people will be eager to sell, ultimately deflating the price of an item.
  6. You can also use the market as a price reference. Just search up the item to see what the average price that item is being sold for.
