So tonight I created a new character to do some hard research for the ‘Money From the Minter’ thread I started today.
I was going to get some numbers on working your way from nothing to forged diamond gear using only the chrysominter and coffers for coins. At this point I’m not even thirty minutes into this new character and I’m so much further ahead of where I thought I’d be I decided to start a thread about this for some laughs.
With the exception of my forger (who still hasn’t completed the tutorial) I haven’t started a new character since I was actually pretty new.
I started on trior, just picked a spot near a large city, it turned out to be illuminaughty. I crept for 50 meters (One Step At A Time), then sprinted towards town. I had to sim a little ways to get there and when I did I ran around the mall for a few more meters (Speed Runner I) and then hit a portal network.
I took a few side portals on my way to Raxxa (Star Explorer) and requested to join a guild with a shared chrysominter. I swam around the base a little more while I waited (1000 leagues Under The Sea) and within a few minutes of starting the game I found myself with 400 coins and access to a fully coiled chrysominter.
Response times from a guild can vary, of course. Still…
Opening those coffers got me a couple of levels, and a couple more coffers.
The economy has changed a lot since I started and I still want to look at earning with the minter not the economy. But with the shop scanner in place early participation in the economy is a breeze, so I bought a pair of iron grapples for 35c each and a fist for 30c.
Then I headed off to get a titanium axe I found in the shop scanner for 300c. Not the cheapest int he universe but a fair deal and I already had the coin. I was smashing some earthyams for food and managed to get (Seed Collector I) before I made the 1200m to the axe I was after.
I bought the axe for 300c and by the time I made it back to the guild area I picked up the (Weekly Experience Bonu)s and the (Daily Experience Bonus).
At this point if I hadn’t bought the titanium axe I could afford an unforged gem. Still I bought a couple of copper tools for 25c each I think I’m going to do the tutorial. Also I got level 5 for opening those coffers.
My current situation after maybe 20 minutes of active gameplay:
I paused for some forum responses and other RL activity so also already got the daily activity bonus of 100c. I’ll update after I smash some stuff.
EDIT Actually I’m scatterbrained but after a break I decided I’d better get back on my minter research for now. More on this later. I plopped down a beacon controller so i could have a home beaconnear the guild minter. This got me another 100 coffer coins.
