This text is a presentation of our server seen from my eyes. It is not perfect and it’s adapted to my game style. Readers are asked to apply the information from this guide to their preferred game style.
- Making Items
Beginners can buy the items from NPC in city maps. To improve the quality of their items they will have to farm metin stones and use the green adders and changers dropped. This will allow them to enjoy the game. It is necessary to complete all quests in order to gain the boost needed to catch up with more experienced players.
Items can be upgraded at city blacksmith, guild blacksmiths, in DT blacksmiths and at orc maze blacksmith. The city blacksmith and all guild blacksmiths will ask additional items for upgrade. The same happens if players use upgrade scrolls (Blessing Scroll, Blacksmith’s Memo, Wise Man’s Memo, Dragon God Blessing Scroll and Master Compass) to improve their items.
Rarity items with valuable bonus are too precious to be risked at blacksmiths. Players will use upgrade scrolls or where is possible the rarity blacksmith at 12th floor of DT.
- Making Money
In Metin2 money can be obtained in different ways. The amount of them is determined by player’s ability to compete with other players.
Quests offer a fixed amount of gold and some items every player can use or sell
Farming is the best way to make money, starting from map1 to the latest dungeon at the highest lv available. When the number of players on a server is increasing, more items will be needed so the amount of money earned is increasing as well.
The most farmed objects in Metin2 will always be the metin stones. Depending on their lv, they drop books, stones and items. Some are quite valuable.
Upgrade materials are a very good idea to farm. They drop from monsters at metins or in different maps and will always be a good choice to use/sell. A player who wishes to farm upgrade materials should always think first which will sell fast than others. Like this nobody will spend too much for farming items that may sell very slow.
Dungeon runs come in handy for experienced players. There are several guides and descriptions in forum, I will not insist at this topic.
Lv 30 weapons’ farming it’s another way to make gold. A server population will consist mostly in warriors and suras so weapons for them are needed. Higher the average of the weapon, the better price for it, and if it has good rarity bonus, it will cost even more.
Items’ refining (upgrading) is also a way to make money. This is mostly done by beginners in Demon Tower but experienced players will always upgrade common items there too. The items with rarity bonus will be improved with upgrade scrolls and for sure their price will be fabulous compared to common items.
Stone upgrading is available from +3 stones and it can be done only in valley at NPC Seon-Pyeong. The max lv of a stone in our server is +6. PvM stones cost more and can be sold easier.
Events help players to progress faster and earn good amounts of money. The Event Calendar is available in forum.
In SG server Item Mall materials can be sold in game, so a player can use real money to buy from Item Mall and sell the stuff in his shop.
Fishing and mining are also important, but they depend on player’s ability to dedicate time for such activities.
Horse medals are required to increase the lv of the horse and to feed the power mounts. Horse Medals can be obtained killing monkeys in the monkey dungeons. One is in city map2, the other two in desert. Drop is pretty good and there will always be request for horse medals in the market.
Buying cheap and selling for more is a way to make profit and requires the ability to see what sells, what’s not selling and what is the price for items. It’s an activity I don’t recommend because it can lead to inflation and loss of players.
- Making Skills
Skills are special abilities of each class to inflict damage, to stun and to poison enemies, monsters or other players. Skills can be used from lv5 and with every level one skill point becomes available to add into a desired skill. In the moment a player adds 17 points in a skill then the level of that skill should change to Master. Now, if it’s not happening, a player up to lv 30 can go to Old Lady and reset the skills to try again; from lv31 players should remove skill points with the band of oblivion corresponding to the skill with problem and add points back until it becomes Master.
Skills have four forms of power: skill points, Master, Grand Master and Perfect Master. From Master to Grand Master the skill lv is increased with skill books and from Grand Master to Perfect Master with soul stones.
- Playing on SG
This is a complex activity including some parts from what I wrote above. Players farm, improve the skills, lv up and strengthen their characters according to their needs. Some like to farm more, others prefer to lv up and enjoy the PvP aspects of the server.
I consider important for players to complete biologist quests before they choose to lv up. This saves time and once the quest is done the character becomes faster and stronger.
