Fast money making level 1 - 100

Some money - -++-
Low levels can be financially hard. I am not talking about upgrading, combining, exchanging, buying rare weapons or pets or other luxurious items. Hard times begin then you don`t have money for hp and spirit pills. How to avoid that? Hope people can share some tips, which i would put here. And we will not be talking about item mall and spending real money.
-**- There are two most obvious ways of making money at low levels: wining war and finding money purse from monsters. Both this methods are absolutely not reliable and more of a luck thing than anything else. Wining war can be impossible if your faction is outnumbered heavily, even if you are killing machine, hordes of enemy will take you down. Sometimes, because of outnumbering, one faction can`t win particular war for days. Money purses can give you loads of money if you are lucky and found them often, but it is possible you won`t find much, some players never find one in days :O. So what to do?
-++- Pick up pills mobs drop. You should use 90% hp pills for PvP only and ofcourse only after lower pills are not enough to fill your hp bar. It`s nice to sell pink rejuvination pills to NPC, one such pill is worth 1.7k, 99 pills = ~170k
-++- At low levels picking up money mobs drop won`t give you much money, but later at 50+ lvl you should spam ~ picking hotkey all time XD, it does accumulate and pay at least your hp pills. Also pick up any drops, prefering weapons and armor vs gloves and boots and if you are full and still don`t want to go to town, drop some big item and pick up only rings and amulets by making no 2x2 square available in inventor. Sell them to NPC on visit to town.
-$- Buy cheap, sell not so cheap. You will find eventually some valuable items. Rare equipement, stones, sutras, mats. Try to open shop when you go afk and sell it for other players. The thing with trading is that faction wining most wars will have a lot more money floating in their economy. What you can do if you are in always loosing faction is make an alt character of wining faction, trasfer materials, sutras, stones and other not faction dependend items to this char using shop at horsekeeper.
You can sell them for a lot bigger price in rich faction than in your poore little town XD. After making some millions you can start buying cheap materials at your faction and selling them for 2x price at owerpowered enemy. Ofcourse you keep with your faction, you just rob the enemy XD.
-**- Other way is to make 10-19 lvl war sitter, it takes little time and effort to do that. Just put all skills to multihit, if you are attacking type weapon get 10 vit rest str, if you are ranged type you can go full str. Get 18 lvl unique +1 to your multihit, you can put up to 24% enchant if you want (more is useless because of low level limitations). You will kill most noobs . If you kill about 20 people in one such war you will get about 2-3 keys, Temple of fiends key or Maya cliff key. Maya cliff key is used only for A33 levels so you can NPC it for 333k (sometimes noobs buy it for more, because they don`t know what this key is for ). Temple of fiends key is for Labyrinth which starts at lvl 100, so you can try sell it for 500k and more. If have no time for selling you can just NPC it for 333k.
-**- Things get easier at 90+ lvl. Because of bosses and also abyss cave if you win dragonfall formation. In ghost valley`s regular cave every 3 hours spawn 5 bosses. If you have about 5k hp you can kill them. They drop every time 3-4 various upgrading materials, money purse and often rares and elixers. If you manadge to kill a few you are rich . The other, prise cave is not so exciting, but mobs in it drop 2x more money than in regular caves (in ts1 it had 2x drop rate for any items, but i am not sure if it`s true for ts2). So same mobs which drop 1k in normal caves there drops 2k . Well you wont get super rich, but it pays for pills!
-$- Item farming. :O If you are really hardcore grinder you can do item farming. Best done on weak aggro mobs, killing them with AoE skill. You will kill thousands of mobs fast, you should get some sweet drops. I wouldn`t recommand do it on lower than 60 lvl mobs, because 60+ lvl mobs can drop those sweet 60 lvl skillz :O. Bad side is you will waste loads of time on grind and you will get little exp, but if you are insane grinder it can be an awesome option for geting pets, skills, rares, mats, money purses, stones, sutras... just don`t say that i didn`t warn you - its inhumane
