Oy, let me explain WHY its worth buying the dye at 100k
I made a dye run these last day. Collecting blue herbs wasn’t so bad, I knew where to get them and I was on early, so no competion for the plants. It took a day or so
Most of the stuff needed for the dye was transfered from my old swordman. Except the alchool. I traded my Kurk card for it. And I wanted that card…
Now the painful part, wich I call the dye run. It consist into a quest that involves no less that 3 hours of walking, searching and warping. I looked everywhere, clues, from the web, and the NPC was behind another, so I couldn’t really think he was there. After 2 hours of search, the quest finnally begins. I must walk from Alberta to Geffen in order to meet 2 guys, the last mix the Dextri and Alchool into some potion for the dye. It cost 3000 zennies. And I’m broke.
I walk back from Geffen to Marroc. And try to kill the most stuff. I need 3500 to make the Blue dye. It will take me another hour selling stuff.
When I finnaly have my dye, I walk back (Again, thus the title “The lost Mage” really applies :P) to Pronteras, toward the cloth Dyer.
He says he’s too busy for dying now…
you mean dying as in coloring your clothes ala UO?
i havent bought much yet, only a main gauche, jacket, guard, and flu mask from the morroc armory (3400z total). however, i find it alot easier to get stuff and actually make money, compared to say… EVERQUEST.
with td’s luck against himself though it’d be at least a alarm or something, or hell if its possible, a phreeoni. Now wouldnt THAT suck, to be walkin around leveling, booken comes in and db’s a phreeoni right beside you then wings away?
